There you go (possibly) making up numbers again...haha. I'll tell you what, this is my last post. I will let you get the last word in and won't respond. I'm just not sure why you took a defensive position from the very beginning. We are all supposed to be here to learn systems so that we can succeed (even though the vast majority won't). It looked (and still looks) like a good system. Since that is the reason for this forum, I just inquired as to what it was. From the beginning, you refused to explain your system or even explain why you wouldn't (which you finally did much later in the thread). You just got very defensive when I questioned the records that a stranger (which is what we are) posted when there was no way to back test your system or it's results. You just said that we should just bet your picks. That would be no different than betting any other stranger's picks. For someone that has been handicapping for 29 years, I would think that you also follow that line of thinking if you have been successful that whole time (which I'm not disputing...I don't know you). Had you just stated from the beginning that you were just providing picks and not a system, I would have never bothered.
As far as the results of my system, I can only vouch for what I found when I backtested. That is why I posted it on this message board so that maybe someone can find errors in my system. I am just trying to find good systems since I suck at handicapping. I have done well since I started betting systems last year...although I still make mistakes. I am currently playing four different systems, but don't post the others because i am not ready to share. I'm not calling you a liar, but I'm not sure if you backtested it properly. It took me awhile to do because I had to make sure each team was .525 or better when they lost. Maybe you have a program and database to do it quicker, but I do not. And all I can post is the record that I have of the bets that I have made this year (didn't play this last year) for that system and it is currently 62-1 with two opens: TB (D) and CIN (B). If I have been that lucky to have missed the other losses you claim to have found then good for me.
I don't claim to be an expert or even good at this. I do know that I started with a personal bankroll of $2,000 for baseball betting $20 units and my current balance is $4,262 (+113 units). All with systems I either got from here or made up myself based on ideas from this forum. I know I'm not getting rich (yet...haha) with that, but I think it is a decent start for me.
You can continue to rip me or whatever if you want to and I won't respond as stated before. However, I actually do wish you continued success with the faint hope that you may share it one day. Plus money systems are the best in my opinion.
Anyways, my novel is over...goodbye.
