No offense to anyone, but it takes patience and more patience. You can't get into the thrill of making big bucks on every play. I can honestly say that since I've used internet accounts, I've never tapped out. I've taken money out at the end of the season. But that was me just getting the cash. Not tapping out.
We had this discussion last year. Very good info. I will actually have people argue that this is not the way to go. Well, I have math on my side. Also I have the proof of not putting any money in my internet accounts by tapping since 1996.
First of all. Lay off the parlays. UNLESS........You are parlaying two big favs. That will make them into an even wager or a dog. I see so many people trying to score the huge hit by parlaying 4 or more teams.
Second. Just because it's a big fav, doesn't mean they are going to win. There are plenty of upsets in hockey.
Third. It kind of goes with the first two. Stay away from the juice. It will just kill ya. You will notice I will play -1 lines quite a bit. This gets the big juice plays down to low or no juice. Also it turns big favs to nice dogs. You can turn that -150 into a +137. That's a huge difference. Yes, you will get some ties. But that's part of the game.
Fourth......Don't chase.........just don't do it. Now I have some friends on other boards. Well, mainly one board that does this. Sometime down the road you are going to get hit. It may be awhile. But one day you will tap out.
Fifth.......Here is really the whole ball of wax here. This is the grail of it all.
Have your bankroll set. I mean your whole bankroll. Just wager a percentage of your bankroll for each game. Here is what I do.
I wager 2.5% of my bankroll on each game. I've actually lowered this again this year. It was 4%, before the lockout. Then, last year it was 3%.
Say you start out with......OK.........I will use some real world numbers that most of you probably are using. You start out with $1000. Then you decide to take the Bruins and Canes at Even money.
You would wager $25 on both teams. Say you won both.
Then your bankroll is now $1050. Now your 2.5% wager would be $26.25 instead of $25. You win your wagers go up. That's where the snowball starts. Yeah, you're not going to break the bank at first. But if you keep winning your wagers will go up. That's when you should wager more. But that 99% of people will wager more when they lose. Exactly backwards.
Now how about if those two $25 wagers lose. Well your bankroll is down to $950. So your next wager would be $23.75. Now this is where the real power of this comes in. When you are losing, you dig your heels in and make it tough for the book to tap you out. You start to lose you cut your wagers down. Again, exactly opposite what most people do.
One of the complaints of this is most people say when I get on a winning streak I'm making less money because I'm down a few hundred. I should be winning $25 or $30 a game instead of $20 or so.
Well, if you start winning your wagers will start to creep up. I will bump my percentage up if I'm on a winning streak. Hell, after the Olympic break a couple of years ago, I I was up to 6% on my wagers in March and the first week of April
If you hit that streak push it a bit. But make sure your on a streak, not just winning a few games. If you play like this you will never go broke. If it's the action your looking for please stop now. You will be telling a sad story to people. That's the reason 99% of people can't do this. It's the action they need. They don't wager logically.
I know a handful of people in my network that do this. They are very astute. They don't play everyday. The don't force a play. But they do wager by a percentage of their actual bankroll.
Come on and join this handful. You won't be sorry.
Good skill to everyone this year. I will be watching.
