08/17/2019 Picks

Last night was super frustrating and a continuation of a trend that’s plagued me since Aug 7. I’ve punted right around 15 units on favorites of 200+ in baseball. Let’s put that in some perspective. I am virtually break even during that time period (+.75 units to be exact) so those losses, 3 of which occurred in the bottom of the 9th, have cost me quite a bit of money.

As I mentioned previously, I have a ton of systems that I implement for each sport. Every once in awhile I reexamine and tweak the systems to make sure the are still viable long term and are still producing a positive ROI. Last night I tweaked the hell out of some of my favorites systems for baseball. Let’s hope it pays some dividends.

Last night -.17 units

YTD -.17 units( I’m starting fresh for this blogs purposes. I’ve had a great summer but there’s no use including units won prior to posting here. No one wants to hear, or believe for that matter, anyone’s “I’m up 2573834 units” when it hasn’t been documented)

Indians +168

Mariners +148

Astros -138

Browns +2.5 -105

There will be more later on today. Good luck, my fellow degenerates.

08/16/2019 Picks

I love to bet on sports. I started betting 30 years ago when, as a teenager, I worked at a bowling alley. One of the bowlers started talking about placing bets on NFL games and this intrigued me greatly. So I placed 10 bets that weekend through him, relying on the omniscience that only a teenager has, at least in his own mind, and proceeded to win $37. I was hooked!

So, over time, I’ve developed my own systems and ideas that help me consistently win or, at the very least, at least stay afloat. Some systems are pretty specific too. If pitcher A pitches at home, with the wind blowing in, there’s a full moon, and it’s an odd numbered day etc.

I always bet 1 unit/play without any sort of deviation. I’ve caught some flack from folks in the past for not having 5* plays or plays of the month where I go balls to the wall. I’m kind of old school with my slow and steady wins the race approach. But, for the purposes of this blog, I will specify if I feel a play, or plays, may be stronger than the others. I’m still sticking with my 1 unit/play plan however others may go a different direction.

Nationals -153

Phillies -116

Cardinals +125

Braves -116 (designating as POD)

Indians +132

Red Sox -275

Rays -320

Twins -101

A’s +173

White Sox +100

Mets -174

Bears +3 -105

Oh, one last thing, I really love action. I bet a game if I feel there’s an advantage. I’m super pumped for college football season to get here. Good luck to everyone!
