Updated to include Danrules24 NHL Away Parlay System here (on NHL tab): https://www.covers.com/forum/ViewThread/101980215/nhl-2-team-road-parlay-system/1 This doesn't mean that it's Dan's plays but, according to the system, the top 2 away ML teams at that point Odds was refreshed.  I added it to the spreadsheet as sometimes I may not have time during the day to look up the plays online, but only in the morning when I update the spreadsheet.

These plays are now added into the NHL Systems tab for tracking. Again, these are not necessarily Dan's plays.  These plays, at the end of the day, are based on Cover's lines.  When you refresh the Odds, the money lines are from Vegas Insider.  

Updated to Sunday morning 11/11.

Thank You to all Veterans, Foreign and Domestic. peace_5

I was out in hospital for few days and when I came back, the debuger opened when I tried to update the sheet to have the plays. And there is always Errors on some plays like the top ml plays.   Thanks for your great work my friend

Sorry, just noticed this post.  I'm going to work right now but when I get back home in 9 hours or so, I'll post the updated version with the plays to date.

Today's parlay is Win & Bos

I have youwager dot something.  I've been with them for close to 20 years now.  They post winnings almost immediately after the wager is over. They used to call often to have you deposit more $$$ into your account but the new management put a stop to it.

I've never withdrawn, cause I've had my wins and losses over the years...playing for fun...but it's never been posted anywhere that it's a problem to get your money.

Their wager types aren't on a grand scale as 5dimes (I had an account there) but the basic stuff. I'm happy with them.

From Jan 25th, 2018...page 87 (in address bar).  Post 2165.  This is the closest it's been said that the teams need to be favorites...I had even seen one team played at +165 a few years ago (2015?).  I did not read through the whole forum but jumped around looking at the odds posted.  Even last year we played dogs.

See Post #1.  2 biggest road favorites.

I had read post 1 a few times to check on other stuff, but it doesn't actually say FAVORITES, it says 2 strongest road teams, even if one or both are dogs.  I should check on when it became just favorites so we can use that post.  Regardless, just recently, we have stated the system.  I always skim a thread before I pose a question.

The community here has made this thread the #2 all-time in views and we should move into the 1 spot this season as the other thread is dead. We will probably move to 2 in comments as well. Thanks all!

A few of my threads didn't have any comments, just me posting the plays.  I didn't know if anyone out there cared for the systems or not. This is why I went to my current thread of just updating the spreadsheet.

Check that, the teams must be favorites.

Read post #1

 

Dan, I added onto my spreadsheet your plays (Top 2 Away ML Favs) for everyone.  In the post, I provided a link to this thread and stated that what the spreadsheet gives might not be your plays.  Also, it does not track the plays.  It's just to isolate the top 2 away money lines.  

I can remove the additions, and re-upload the spreadsheet if you don't want me to have your system on it.

There is some flexibility in the betting amounts as we get further down the string to make sure we profit on any session we have a win.

Bet whatever you feel comfortable with as your unit size then use 1x, 2x, 3x, 5x, 8x, 12x, 18x, 25x. Dan uses $15 as the new unit size for tracking, instead of $10 (post 2402).  I myself play for fun and my unit size is $2.00.  That's two dollars, not two hundred dollars.  I was up during MLB, doing very well but then lost track of my 1-8 play (1x, 2x, 3x, 5x, 8x, 12x, 18x, 25x) and took a big hit (I was still in a profit at season end). That's why you need to pay attention.

As far as the StL/Bos parlay from yesterday, I will play it because Dan has it listed, even though both were close to being or were dogs.

  Dan, I couldn't find Boston as a favorite anywhere, just as a pick em. I'm confused why they count as a play.

Dan has them as a favorite at his book.  I got Bos as -105 and StL as -115.  I just follow his plays and cash after the games are done.

I quickly read through this but wouldn't all 5 games posted be wins?  If the progression is OOOUUU then Geo St was on game 3 OV Win (as stated) and the rest were on game 5 which should be all unders, but you have LOSS on Mich St, Geo Tech and Hawaii.  I didn't read all the way through, mostly where you picked it up in the fall of 2013, so maybe I missed it.

I could back test this easily and also make a spreadsheet for in the future.  I gotta save this link.

For today, and any other "Day after No NHL"....after you "ADD PLAYS", you need to clear the previous day's "Top 2 ML" (as there wasn't any plays) and then copy and paste the current day's plays from below that row.  You will see that the cleared play will have #NUM! as its teams.  You don't want to delete the row, always copy and paste. 

If you do it properly,you should have 2 of the same play at the bottom, today being Wash and Bost parlay.

New Update. Changed the 3 letter NHL abbreviation to a 4 letter abbreviation.

For this spreadsheet, with both MLB and NHL on it, all teams need different abbreviations.  I changed the similar ones on NHL, but those looked weird to me, so I changed NHL to 4 letters instead.

You don't need to download if you're fine with the abbreviations.

Fixed Top 2 ML on NHL Systems tab, it wasn't pulling on info from NHL Covers tab, resulting in an error as Anaheim was one of the 2 top ml teams.  This would prevent posting below.

Updated for a few housekeeping things.  Cleaned up COL G in NHL tab, so you can move over plays in NHL System tab.  Added the first legs in COL V (highlighted in yellow).  I, also, added the time of the games on NHL tab (far right) which I had done for MLB but didn't for hockey.

I hid all MLB tabs as that season is completed.

Spreadsheet has been updated for today (Saturday), so you don't need to do anything after download.

I kinda did the same.  If I had just kept to the system as I posted it instead of messing around and/or forgetting to play, I would be fine.  I was up 5x my original BR before losing to just over double of what I started with.

MLB System is complete for the season.

Columns AK to AU of MLB System are all -1.5 Run Line systems, not Money Line.   I had started to get that ready for next year as I had previously kept track of RL Lines and ARL Lines (-1.5 not 1.5).  You can see how well each system did in RL above in rows 2-6, columns AJ - AQ.  I do have a web site that I automated the lines from, I just hadn't put it on this spreadsheet yet.

If you downloaded the spread sheet right after, I noticed an error on the MLB System page at the bottom of Col AN.  If on your new sheet, to the right of Top 2 (row 2084) is #NA, I have fixed that problem.  If it says 12, you're good.

I don't follow -1.5 RL for NHL as, while very successful, you go to leg 25 often.

I just went back to check sheet and found a small problem.  The stats above in MLB systems, rows 2-6, did not have all the plays, they only went to row 2052.  That should be it (I think).

If you have downloaded the sheet TODAY before 843 am (EST) , a few minutes before this post, your new sheet is off a bit, nothing to worry about for this NHL Season.

I updated my sheet this morning for NHL and found/fixed a problem.  Anything new will be highlighted in yellow on intro page.  

There will be error values until teams have played at least one road and home game...plus (I think) SCORED once on a road/home game.  Again, any problems I will fix and update right away (except, maybe Sundays as I'm up and off to work right away).

Same link to download, already uploaded.
