I know it isn't setting the world on fire right at about 59%, but would you be happy with it?

2008: 64-51

2009: 72-40

2010: 76-54

2011: 72-53

 

Single units across the board is a +6620 net.

I've tried reducing it multiple ways, trying to improve the percentage (or at least keep it the same) but I haven't been able to do so.

I'll ride it this season and see if it holds up moving forward.

It is. However, my dumb behind was always trying to tweak it to improve the % and it usually failed.

Gonna ride it this season and hope I hit the average.

59% flat betting is pretty bad behind.

Whats your number then dude?  59% is 59%.  Actually 59% with higher volume means more profit.  This isn't like poker where more tables could mean a decreased rate of return.  There are like 55 bettable games a week during the CFB season.  Between 110 and 130 a season, 15 weeks + bowl season (which usually because of the space between games could increase your number by 15 or more) is still only about 6-8 games a week during the regular season.  If he sees an angle why would he not play it just because its over his 3rd bet. 

What's your win % if you don't mind asking.  Some people just refuse to give credit where credit is due.  Betting the same number of units, even if you're picking 2/3 winners on your 3 plays a week, he's still crushing you in overall profits picking at his volume.

what's up VB - you're smart enough to know 59% long term (5-10+ years) with any quantity is great...if maintained ahead of the games, if it's a system where you're looking at a set of games based on certain system factors somewhat after the fact then that's not the same, look forward to the analysis and picks, BOL this season bud

t rav - good point about the volume versus %...sometimes folks get caught up too much in percentage as opposed to net units based on a true 1 unit wager for all...40-20 sounds great and is...you can make the same amount (+18) though if you go 128-100..whatever works for your style in maximizing profit

too many bets it's a bad thing it's actually quite good... as long as you keep a high winning percentage..
