    We all have our favorite gambling movies, but what about the best single scene?

    Below is my favorite and in my opinion the best single gambling scene in a movie.

    It makes you wonder if Keanu Reeves has done some gambling himself he played it out so well.

    And how many of us have uttered those words "Never Again".....haha







    He bet the Chicago Bulls +6 after already being way down & trying to get it back plus some.....

    heh....wow..been a long time since I recalled my earliest listening to sports on radio.

    Parents gave me a transistor radio with earplug that I used to use every night for either Houston Astros baseball feed (in the Dallas market prior to Rangers entry) or the Dallas Chapparals ABA games.

    Bathroom scenes in gambling movies reminds me of Dreyfus, in Let it Ride, sitting in the stall talking to God "I THOUGHT WE HAD A DEAL".

    My two favorites were the very beginning scene of "The Gambler" starring James Caan when he gets crushed then walks out into the daylight to get in his car, or the bathtub scene from the same movie. But then I just watched that clip from "Bad Lieutenant" and things might have changed.
