Saturday for sports betting in MLB we went 2-1 for +1.82 Units. Our Overnights were 1-1 for a push and our regular play on Tampa was +1.82 units.
That brings us to +17.28 Units for the season to date in MLB.
So far today there are 4 plays, 2 overnights, and 2 regular plays
We have broken out to new highs on our equity curve. So far the pullbacks have been minimal. We have seen 2 so far. Both have been around 5 unit pullbacks.
Considering the number of games that we are playing and the regularity of the plays these pullbacks are nothing. Much less so far then I would have envisioned.
I have been asked whether we can keep up this pace for the rest of the season:) Anything is possible of course, but it is best to keep realistic expectations. Also, regardless, keep tight control of your bet sizing. It is easy to throw caution to the winds when you are running good. I have done it many times in the past. All with expected endings.
The idea is slow and steady. You cannot avoid drawdowns but you can avoid exiting sports betting as about 90% of the sports bettors end up doing. The sad part is none of them no what went wrong!
Even if you have a solid handicapping method, if you do not bet size you will most likely end up losing. That is a fact. Only the most seasoned sports bettors and poker players for that matter have a solid grasp on this.
