Tested 2010/11 season for results following a 4,5,6 and 7 game over/under streak. In this test we bet against the streak, results as follows:

4 game streak, teams went 78-77 betting to snap the streak.
5 game streak, teams went 36-39 betting to snap the streak.
6 game streak, teams went 15-22 betting to snap the streak.
7 game streak, teams went 15-7 betting to snap the streak.

Obviously the value is betting a team against their streak following a 7 game over/under streak. Has anyone back tested any similar strategies? I will also test the 2009/10 season unless someone has already done so.

For 2010/11 season if you bet against the streak after 6 games:
15-22 
+$15 & -$24.20 

betting 2 units on on the 7th game:

15-7
+$30 & -$15.40

End of the season at +5.40, taking the 6th game and doubling up on the 7th.

If we just go against the 7th game @$1 we finish with +7.30

Im in the process of backtesting 2009/10.

you'll probably do better if you bet WITH the streak instead of trying to break the momentum. Finding the right streak can do wonders for your roll
