On Friday we had one play in the NBA and it was a blowout…..Against us!
We had Orlando +7.5 and they lost 98-128.
So we are sitting on 4 days left in the month and stand by my calculation -3.79 units.
Just to keep it into perspective the last losing month we had was in June where we lost 3.72 units.
We are on a 6-month winning streak right now for +52.72 Units!!!
I will put this record up against any of the handicapping services out there that charge 10x or more for the subscription price of this site’s plays.
I will add my results spreadsheet to the site this morning so you can take a look at the breakdown per sport and per month.
I did this rather quickly this morning and used my google sheet results along with the results on the site. So there most likely are a few minor errors in the numbers. When I get some time I will go over the numbers again to double check everything. But these should not be very far from reality…whatever that is:)
Also when I have the time I plan on going through the site and adding pre-march 2016 results to the mix. That will require a bit more work but in the end should be very revealing as to the progress my handicapping has made through the years and also the consistent improvement in sports I struggled in years ago.
Let me also mention that professional handicappers typically have goals of around 30 units a year as a target for success. Very few achieve that goal with even less beating it consistently. Remember of the universe of humans that bet on sports less than 1% win consistently year after year.
There are a number of reasons for this:
1. Starting off your at a 5 to 2.5 percent disadvantage
2. The human element will work against you from start to finish
3. Being a successful handicapper requires an obsessive attention to detail while also keeping an open mind to new ideas that produce value
4. There is no easy road to winning. The road to betting sports or any kind of wagering daily is filled with pitfalls and traps that ensnare most sooner or later.
These are just a few that come to mind early on a Saturday morning. There are more…much more:)
My goal is to not only produce positive EV plays consistently but also to guide subscribers along this slippery slope.
Since starting the subscription version of this site after 12 years of providing positive EV plays on this site and 2+2 forums, this site has produced my goals of giving substantial value to sports bettors by way of plays and advice for a nominal monthly subscription.
