Another post…and my reply

I have been following your blog for awhile and you do a terrific job. I am a bettor myself and do okay but due to money management issues probably don’t do as good as I should.

Short story I have 2 off shore accounts and one with a local where I have a limit in losses of 6K per week. I am thinking in my local account to bet a nickel on each of your plays and make no other plays in that account. I have about 10K set aside to absorb any bumps in the road. Do you think with those limits (bank roll and weekly fig)that betting 500 is the right amount or should it be lower ?

My reply:

Thanks for the email. with a 10,000 , 500 a play is only 20 units. My self…I like to have 50 unit bankroll.

But I am very conservative. But 20 units would be at a minimum and expected downswing each year.

Also as far as following my plays. NBA is very questionable. Last year i managed about a 2 unit profit on over 100 plays. Baseball last year I lost money in.

The only sports so far that shows a very good return are both college and pro football.

I have started a ncaa basketball service…which shows some promise. Sides have ben iffy but totals have been pretty solid.

So…bottom line is….. I bet a minimal amount on my nba plays. I may not bet anything on baseball this year. Next year I am going to raise my bets on football again. Have had 2 solid years in a row now. And in ncaa baskets I bet a moderate amount per play.

My suggestion is if your going to bet these plays is…either pass on nba or bet very minimal amount…and watch my ncaa basketball results….when you feel comfortable subscribe to the plays…its only 100 a month. And next football season…load up on football plays!
