On Saturday we had 3 plays and went 3-0 for +3.23 Units sports betting MLB. That brings us to +12.775 Units season to date in MLB.
We also won our Bet or Pass on the overnight Total with Atlanta Under 8 1-0.
Yesterday I wrote about how to wager on sports events. Its called the 2% rule.
There is a lot more than having a disciplined wagering structure, but without it, you cannot win in the long run.
Wagering on sports events is nothing more than probability theory. You have the Bell Curve. And at any point in time, you can find yourself anywhere on the Bell Curve.
Of course, most of the time you will be near the center portion of the curve. But on occasion, you will find yourself on the extremes.
An example of Positive Variance is Fezzik winning the Hilton NFL contest two years in a row. That is a big number:)
The other end is gut-wrenching downside swings.
If you wager long enough you will experience both. As a full-time poker player, I found that about every 3 years you would experience a downswing that would test your resolve as to staying in the game.
That is typically when most of the poker players fall by the wayside. As most are underfunded and play far too high for their bankroll.
The same is true for sports betting. Take a look at how the 2% rule handles both extremes. If you find yourself on the right side of variance your wagers will increase. If you find yourself on a severe downswing your wagers will automatically be reduced.
No guessing, no plunging, just a methodical method that gives you the best chance at succeeding.
One thing to keep in mind is human nature will fight you all the way on this. Humans are typically hardwired for failure as gamblers. The successful gamblers reprogram themselves. The unsuccessful ones (most) either never understand this or do not have the will to do it.
