We went 1-2 on Monday with Houston winning , Seattle and KC losing.

Today nothing even close to a lean or a play..so a pass.

Football starts next week. I mention this at the start of every football season. First its very important you reread the required reading section again before the season starts.

Next I have not had a losing season yet in college or pro football. Does this mean this year will be the same? Absolutely not!!! The number of plays in football each week means that the sample size of these picks is very small. Compare it to baseball or ncaa baskets where on every day you have the same number of games that you have in the nfl and college football respectively a week.

So….this all means…money management is key. Bet an amount that assures you will last through any downswing and will not cause you any discomfort( monetary or psychological)

The general pattern year to year with the public is to start out betting much more then they should at the start of the season and then by mid season they are disgusted and are finished. And some cant even make it through preseason.

The idea is to have fun with the handicapping, and assure yourself that you will be around come the superbowl in a good frame of mind win or lose.

Good Luck Today

    My policy is for the first day of the NFL is to take my total net worth, divide it by the number of plays I am going to make for the day, bet that amount per play and pray I have money to eat that night.
    I know this is not typical sound money management but I stand by my system. ­čÖé

    Rick why don't you adjust unit size at all ? I assume some plays are stronger than others?
