centralflaguy. I do something very similar, have been for a couple years now. Always keeps me in the green. I usually pick 3-4 teams in the beginning of the week and on the weekend sets. My biggest lessons learned are money management and to stay away from 4 game sets.

Money Management- If I start the season at $100 per game on game 1, I continue all year at $100 on game 1. There are times when I guess wrong, doing this makes sure I don't get wiped out by a couple bad plays. You will have streaks of a couple, to hopefully a few, weeks where you are on fire, kinda like now. But the bad will come. Keeping the same bet amount will help you through the tough times and not wipe you out.
4 game sets- I usually stay away until after the 1st game is decided, essentially making it a 3 game set if the team I like drops the 1st game. I was burned a couple times pretty good by 4 game home sweeps, where the chase was pretty high. A couple times because the chase was too high and I was afraid play them, and a couple more because of something crazy like the first 4 game home sweep in 30 something garbage years. But it does happen.
People here are going to hate this system because of Martingale horror stories. Don't listen to them. First weekend of this season, there were 5 sweeps out of the 30 teams. Meaning you and I had an 83.34% chance of picking winning teams and not getting swept. Best odds in the casino. Keep doing what you're doing. Trust your gut and see who's got what at the end of the season. Good luck.
