Wednesday we had 2 plays sports betting MLB and went 1-1 for +.20 units. That brings us to +26.75 Units Season to date in MLB.
We are only 3 units off our equity highs for the season. But it has been a bumpy road:) We are just pulling out of a 20 unit downswing.
These downswings should be a test of your betting discipline. There is no way to avoid them but you should be able to learn from them. Otherwise, what is the point!
Whenever I go through a downswing I like to learn some lessons from each one. The important things I ask myself are:
1. How did I handle the downswing on a psychological level?
2. Did I abandon at any time my betting discipline?
3. What were my feelings at the low point of the downswing?
The answer to these questions will tell a lot about how far along you are in the process of becoming a winning professional sports bettor.
Not many sports bettors can withstand a 20 unit downswing. Not only is it unnerving but it also brings back memories of when you were a losing sports bettor.
I have to say on this last downswing I lost only 1 subscriber. That is an incredible number. And it shows that I have a pretty solid subscriber base that is sophisticated in their approach to sports betting.
The one person that decided to quit the service is now probably kicking themselves as we are now only 3 units off the equity highs. And it did not take very long to recover.
The secret as I have said time and again is the 2% rule. If you have incorporated this into your betting routine not only will you sleep better during extended downswings but you will find yourself looking at downswings with an academic amusement rather than with horror.
