you said "it feels better to lose than win"

Again, this is more evidence of you being an amateur and what Vegas attracts with near misses, comps and the ludic fallacy that exists inside the walls of casinos.  I am not trying to be right like a bettor or seeking entertainment as gamblers do.  My one and only goal in sports investing is to make money.  That is it.  I don't care about home town favorites or being right.  I look for value and situations with a distinct edge to create solid investing opportunities.

RE: JCarthone.  

 

I am able to turn profits week in and week out and have been sports gambling for 10 years.  I did live in lv right on the strip for 4 months or so last year and over the last ten years used to travel frequently to Nevada with the short flight from CA.  Over the last 6 months, I have been able to eliminate alcohol consumption, establish discipline and adhere to a strict plan.  I agree there are a lot of distractions in lv.  One experiences many more distractions living there then just visiting for 3-4 days.  From my personal experience over the last ten years on sports gambling, one needs to put in 70-80 hours of time into sports analysis and research to become successful.  This involves very advanced mathematics including predictive modeling.  How can one work a steady job and allocate 70 hours a week in sportsbetting?  The true sharps that make over 500k / year solely focus on this.  They have other investments ie real estate and may make more form those other ventures in time.    What you are referring to turning 100-1000 week in and week out is absurd.  The goal of a serious sports investor is to win 25-30% ROI over the course of a season or year.  The figures you are describing are 1000% every week.  No one in the world is able to establish that return every week.  If so, one would be able to turn 1000 into ten million over the course of one football season.  You clearly are an amateur who has no idea of the high stakes sports betting I am referring to.  My minimum wager was 2k and went up to 20k depending on the variables.  It's not even worth it to me to walk through the parasitic casino to get to the sportsbook for any less than 2 dimes.

I just want to tell my story of living the dream. I I went out to vegas with a 35k bankroll and had 4 months of rent (2,000/month) paid for in advance.  I made about 40k in one month betting baseball.  By the fourth month, I was bust.  I did live an extravagant lifestyle and have a lot of overhead (10k/month), but had poor money management.  I travelled every two weeks and ate/lived well above my means.  My biggest downfall was casinos and alcohol.  I have given up alcohol and have the discipline to never playing a casino game again.  In addition, I have read over 20  books related to risk and gambling.  Last year in baseball, I was 72% ats.  My numbers this year in baseball are even better.   The biggest problems were my arrogance and poor money management. I would play 10-20k on a single game and win.    Some of my wins were attributed to pure randomness and I didn't even realize it.    I feel I can do this, but my goal is to make millions sports investing.  I am going to try again, but need 50k to get started.  I will keep the forum updated on my progress,
