Bet or pass
Sunday I went 1-1 on my NFL plays with Cleveland letting me down. My hilton picks went 3-2. I really need to put together a string of 4-1 and 5-0 days. Ive done it before so lets see if I can do that the 2nd half of the season.
I have been getting quite a few questions about the plays and how to get them. First you need to send 49.00 to email@example.com via paypal. Then you need to send a follow to rick_sports and an email to me with your twitter handle so I can add you. All my plays will be sent out via tweets through my private twitter account.
I have been getting other questions about guarantees for picks put out and winners. There are NO Guarantees except I will be using the same diligence I have been using for the 12 years I have had this blog. We will have good times and tough times thats a certainty. Thats why appropriate money management is essential. If you do not have that then you will not make money. If you do then you will have the best chance to make money. What I recommend is putting aside your betting bankroll. This should be an amount you can lose and it will not effect you. Then on each play bet 2.5% of your bankroll. As your bankroll rises and falls so will your bets.
If your looking for sure things and guarantees this is not for you. You will be very unhappy within a short time. But if your looking for a reasonable chance at finding positive ev situations and you can use appropriate money management then this is a good option. Most betting services charge much more for just one sport. This way if they sport you like to follow is not going you can wait until it starts to begin paying your 49.00 a month.
I will be happy to answer any questions via email. I will post all results exactly the way I have been so you can check in and see how I am doing:)
One game tonight in the NFL:
Betting is 64% on Carolina with the line moving from -6.5 to -5. Models favor Carolina Variables are neutral on the game. This game is a clear cut pass for me.
Well after the market dropped 100 pts in the last hour of trading friday its all well today as the market has made it back in the first few hours of trading. Keep in mind that this week we have fed governors talking and if history is any guide they will be far from doveish on rate hikes. In addition we have the jobs report out on friday which will add to the uncertainty. So I doubt its going to be a smooth road this week. I however do not anticipate very much to the downside unless we get a news driven event.
Has turned into a hectic morning. Ok so let me get this out in one post
49 a month for sports plays
24 a month for stock picks
65 a month if you want both
The private twitter feed for sport plays is
Send your payment via paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org Also when you do include your twitter handle so I know its you signing up. Of just email me your twitter handle after you pay.
Again if anyone has any questions let me know.
Private twitter feed for sports
I have been asked about a discount for sports and stocks….I had not given that any thought but 65.00 for both if you want stocks and sports.
The twitter account for all plays is rick_sports
Payments will be processed through paypal ….to email@example.com
If anyone has any questions please ask.
It has come to my attention this weekend that their are several groups that are selling my sports picks. They actually take my plays verbatim and post them as plays and charge quite a bit of money for them. Anywhere from 100 to 200 a month for their picks depending on the package. They include other plays but mine are always in there.
So……. I think it has come to the point where I am going to stop posting plays for free. I have been posting my plays and setups for some time now ..almost 12 years. The cost of the data I get and the updates on the software I use keeps going up as is the time I spend handicapping.
I have decided that I am going to charge 49.00 a month for my plays. That way you can decide which sports you want to pay for. I am going to do it the way I am handling my stock trades and set up a twitter account that is private. Once you subscribe I will activate you and send you the plays as they develop similar to the way I do from my free twitter account.
In addition needless to say I will quite posting any plays on web sites for free. I do not know how long this has been happening but I have suspected it for several years now. Several long time followers have brought this to my attention and I appreciate it. The two people that did that have free life long subscriptions!
Of course I welcome any feedback. But it has reached the point where this is the last straw. I have been flirting with the idea for some time but my hobby has turned into almost a full time job! For those of you that have been following me and will no longer do so I wish you the best. Its been a fun 12 years…and time does really fly.
I will be setting my twitter account up today and you can pay via paypal if you wish. I came up with the 49.00 as an amount that was low enough for all to subscribe. Its much less then the 1400 a year that some people charge for just one sport! And I suspect my record over the twelve years can match any of those.
The markets are about flat an hour before the open. I have established a portfolio of 10 stocks so far to hold through then end of april. I am also now actively trading swing trades as they trigger. In addition I am trading a few income plays buy selling puts before earnings.
The good news is we have started november which begins the best period for the stock market. In addition the Nasdaq is leading. So we should have the wind at our backs then the headwind we faced during the off season for the market. Actually this year it was more like a hurricane!
The one caveat right now( there is always at least one) is the market is far from oversold. October was a record for the market so we are entering this seasonally good period from a month long monster rally. What effect this will have who knows. But it always is a good idea to know where you are at while investing in these markets.
I also have two swing trade longs that will be managed today. Along with any new swing trade setups that come along. As far as more portfolio trades I am going to wait until we get a sell off to start putting those on. In addition however I am doing some covered calls against the portfolio for again income trades.
So should be a very busy 6 months!
