Maybe there is something to say for "law of averages".    I am in the 500 loss club also.  597-532-21.  But I was close to 100 wins over my losses but am heading the wrong way.  I do much better during

thanks , tonight i went with lakers +3.5

yeah the law of averages are amazing ! the due theory ? the cant be wrong because all the factors say so .. the best angle in the world and i lost ? lol  i can go 2 - 1 and the one i use for the survivor is the 1 that is no good .. that is simple bad luck or lack of something .. last night i went 8 - 3 picking in the nba contest .. the 3 that were wrong were the 3 i posted as plays on a thread i am doing .. that 11 selection going 8 - 0 minus my 3 posted plays ? well that is a once in a season kinda thing .. with exactly 11 selections .. lmao   no way that can happen .. i dont believe it . i wish i would have missed at least 1 .. like how nyk got lucky and covered .. 8 - 0 baaby >> minus my 3 posted plays .. and those should have been right too for me to go 11 - 0 ... but nooooooooooooooooo !   

yeah i love mlb too ! is the best by far .. slow snail like pace but sweeet !   gl

Did you put that 100K to good use?  You still got any of it?  Did it change your life at all?  That's a lot of cash all at once.

I am closing in on 900 losses.  My best streak is only 7!!,  which is way below average for someone of that many picks.  Went on a 21-4 run once, should of had a party.  Obsessed with getting a friggin' hat or hoodie, but just can't put anything together.    Anyway, LOVE THE SITE!

that is a good point .. but it actually has more to do with what kind of contest it is . if your best play on the board is say a fav -1.5 you cant do it in the survivor .. if you want to play 1st 5 inns .. you may only have 5 or 6 games to pick from the way the rules are .. and all of them are more of the TOSSUP VARIETY .. ooh , yeah this only applies to nhl and mlb .. ats is always available huh ..

if you could do whatever you wanted -130 and down , that would show a lot more .. as far as how someone is capable of streaking ..

like today the choices were prety limited in mlb .. almost as bad as the espn streak .. as far as tossup variety ,, just my 2cents . i know it wont be changed , just sayin .. would be too much work to make it like realtime .. its cool either way .

a good one is say you have the total of the month , you love it ! you cant do it on survivor because maybe the odds are too high on the game so it is not listed .. duh right .. lmao

How many times did you play a game because you had no wins, maybe even 1 or 2? Very little risk at that point so just play something, even if you're not that crazy about it. I'll bet a few times. Name of the game is STREAK, you don't make money for winning %, total wins, total losses. Tuppy is such a great example. My philosophy is and always will be, "Keep playing," good things will happen.

I remember when Tuppy won..the true story doesn't have to be juiced...I'll leave it at that.
