I have a 12 game winning streak, and I'm up about 40 games over .500 and Ido this professionally. I don't always have time to post a pick or I am out of town. I didn't get back in this month until the 15th and I am 14-1 closing out the month.

Yes 108-86.  That will make you money in Vegas, but even more on matchbook...  That said when I'm back at zero I have a tendency to be a little less careful with a pick just to get started again.

I'm going for 50 above .500 today. I do good research, but luck is the major factor!

If I recall, there was a Grandma that won $1000 recently at 17 MLB daily pick wins. That is living proof that researching all over the place to simply make a 50/50 pick gets you no further than a gut-feeling based on a quick review of basic facts.

I am of the opinion that your gut feeling or initial thought towards picking a side is correct more than not. Save your self from all the detailed research madness. Stand up and make a pic, and then let it roll, baby roll.

I THOUGHT I new hockey best!! I used to just "wing it", and did not too bad. When I entered the big pools, I researched, analyzed, and studied the stats and forecasts to death. Guess what? I crapped the bed, baby! Keep it simple, and use some common sense, is the way I'm rolling now.  I love keeping an eye on the leaders, also. Even today, leaders in the top ten are picking on both sides of the over/under. Somebody's streak ends today.  10% skill + 90% luck = $$$$$$ Good Luck To All.

I'm seven games above five hundred, have my longest streak right now of four going. I've only been doing this is mid july and i find myself caring almost more out the game i picked for my streak than the games i have action on! I've also found i sometimes over-research and over think obvious plays.

Back to 3 after losing my streak of 9 and tonight I have the opposite of the 2nd place player on the leader board. Sorry to say it but hopefully he's resetting tonight.

All new at this! It seems sooooo simple, but is sooooo difficult. I'm a Canadian boy, I need October to roll around so I can pick a sport I actually know something about. 4-1 after my first 5.

Research? I've always played by my gut feeling...I'm 520-502-22 my biggest downfall is from the O/U those are a big chunk of my losses.
My longest streak is 10 (and I did get a cap) and I enjoy playing with it.

Brand new at this. Faking my way through at 8-4, with a current streak of 3, in MLB and a little WNBA for good measure. Just counting the days for the NHL posts.

Finally went over .500 at 41-40.  I have won 8 straight and I noticed my winning streak started when I have been picking underdogs.  Seven were dogs and I did one O/U line.

Just seems you have more opportunities to win with dogs.  I wish I would've learned that long ago with real bets!  lol

I have a 3 game streak going on baseball, and know nothing about the teams, but did a little research from the papers. I watch a lot of hockey and I think the picks will be harder because underdogs win all the time making winning streaks difficult. So I guess luck must play a significant role with Survivor.

Thank the almighty, we don't have to pick baseball everyday on the survivor pics anymore.
