The link is on the first page if you'd like to see for yourself.

On an unrelated note, I'll start posting the dates of games because often I am making bets way in advance hoping to catch a good line (such as these most recent soccer plays).

The problem was that I just wanted action, all the time. From July 25th of 2010 to April 27 2011, I was laying something down. I did alright... got a little cocky... and burned a lot of bridges. I eventually made the impossible goal of turning 10k into 100k which fizzled pretty fast so I'm starting over.

I use to make calculated percentage plays and track various metrics to gauge how I was doing and how money was being invested but I'm going to skip over all that flowery stuff and put that effort into capping. I'm not looking for people to tail me, just document my plays and hopefully make some money back.

After some bad losses in the NFL the last few weeks, I'm sitting at about $4800 available to bet with. I should play it safe and slowly work back as I know that's the right thing to do, but instead I'm gonna set my bankroll at 5k making 5-10% bets. No explanation really, I just want to keep it simple. No idea why I picked the Football forum as my plays come in all sports but who cares.

what is the rush?  You already know it is not the best move... are you in it for the long-term, short-term success monetarily, or are you in it for the adrenaline?  It sounds like you prefer the rush of the chase.... just an observation....GL 2 U either way...peace

Turns out I have a big mouth because if you look, you'll notice that I haven't made any huge bets. They've all been about 2%-4% which is pretty normal.

LOL @PatternBettor... I don't even know where to find that picture again.

@ChOdaZ... I didn't like anything this week in the NFL.

I'm going to be moving this thread to the Systems & Strategies forum due to the rarity of actual NFL plays.
