heres bigbills tips.wat ever your bankroll look to make a profit of 20% of your total bankroll evry week betting -110 lines.so if your total bankroll is 550 you bet 5 bets at -110 you only need to win 3 of those five to flip a %20 profit now if you lower your betting % to %10 of your bank roll now youll have to win more games to turn that %20 profit.So bigbills tips are bet bigger on a smaller bankroll this will increase your odds of being a winner

     If you want to win at sports gambling you need a lot of discipline and money management skills.  And a lot of bank.  You should start with atleast 100 units, and your base bet would be one unit.  Not five or ten.  Put two on your strong plays, and three to four units on your strongest plays.  Increase your unit size after you have increased your bankroll by 25%.  So if you start with $1,000, your betting unit would be $10.  Once your roll reaches $1,250 (1,000 increased by 25%), then you increase your unit to $12.50 (1% of $1,250).

     It will seem like a grind at first.  But consider this:  If you can increase your bankroll by 25% once a month you will turn $1,000 into $35,527 in 16 months.  After 20 months it will reach $86,734.

     This is a general model and you'll have to tweek the units as it will be difficult to turn 1K into $1,250 with ten dollar bets.  It would simply take too long.  I did this once a while back and turned $20 into about $225.  I was increasing my BR by 25% sometimes in just 3 or 4 days.  Sometimes it would take me several weeks.  I think I lost my patience and discipline and went on a big losing streak and lost it all.  However, I don't consider myself a good capper, and I think a good capper could do this if he had the discipline and patience. 

     And remember... if you can increase $1,000 by 25% and turn it into $1,250 in 30 days, it wont be any more difficult to increase $20,000 by 25% in 30 days (they're just bigger numbers).  Then that 20K becomes 25K.

     I've got to start this up again.  It was a lot of fun, and I was successful at it for a while.  Try to turn $20 into $225.  It's not easy.  Atleast it wasn't for me. 

     Good luck.

This guy said he typically deposits 200. You are seriously asking him to bet 10$ a game? Who in their right mind could possibly do that???

So what he goes on an amazing run and hes up to what 280?

Cmon guy, we are human beings here. And this is not a perfect world.

I can hit winners at 55% easy but I have no br management either, never have, and sadly probably never will.

Sad thing is if I did, I could be rich.

Heres a tip, dont listen to BigBills tips.

Guy is on here starting a new thread about how he is desperate for a job or money literally every 4.6 days.


Its tough to make a living doing this man. Its streaky and too easy to chase.

Chasing is the downfall of us all.
