My brother is always looking at his phone. Last week my mother got mad at him because he was looking at his phone in the middle of dinner. He was looking at some betting web sites and putting money on the basketball games. My father was interested in how the bets would turn out and pulled out his phone so he could make a few bets too. This made my mother even madder. I was about to pull my phone out, but I realized that it would be a bad idea to do so, so I waited until after dinner and made some bets of my own.
My mother seems to be the only one who isn’t interested in betting. It’s not like she doesn’t watch sports or anything. In fact, she’s a bit more of a sports fan than my father. She just doesn’t want to put money on the sports and would rather watch them for the fun of it. I can see her stance, but I would rather get some money while I’m enjoying the games. The fun of winning along with the team that you’ve bet on is a good feeling that I wouldn’t want to give up.
Some of the games that my brother bet on made him money, while some of the other ones didn’t. I was able to win on all of the games that I bet on because I made better betting decisions than he did. He is more of a random betting person who only makes bets without thinking about how the teams are doing or how they are picking up their players. I look at stats and figure out all of the details about how the games will be played and their outcomes. I can see who will win before the games happen.
