I like the idea of betting parlays, however everyone on Covers only does straight bets and sticks to unit plays, etc. That takes a lot of patience. Guess I need to work on that because I can pick 3 or 4 winners a day sometimes but its always that one loss that keeps me from staying in the game. Any suggestions? Can I ask for a mentor here? lol Holla.

Most successful bettors here bet single games because they can pick winners at 60% or higher, which makes you money.

I like seeing my bankroll go up each day too, and it's more difficult for that to happen betting parlays, unless your just betting 2 gamers.

For MLB betting, there's a few rules I follow that help me make money.

Can I be more clear?  Also parlays are for suckers, i do 2 gamers sometimes that are juiced up.  But sometimes I can't help myself gotta do those 4-5 gamers with juicy payouts .

Another topic which I like to discuss is the number of games a day.  I see alot of cappers here betting 4,5, even up to 10 games a day.  IMO that is a huge risk factor.  Unless you have about 1000 units in your bankroll you should be betting 4-10 games a day.  You got 100 units only I would think about betting more than 2 games a day cause u will bust within 2 weeks

Love the info SpiderMonkey. Really appreciate it. Ya even the 2 gamers are iffy and I know that by straight betting I can be more focused with my bankroll and not get carried away like I usually do. I'll win like 70 on a 3 team parlay and then try more units the next time etc. etc. 
   I know that's terrible bankroll management and that's exactly what I need to work on. Thanks for the "constructive" criticism guys. I don't remember the last time I laid a straight bet. Parlays and teasers only. I know I'm capable of hitting parlays especially during football season where I turned 50 into 800 a couple times last year, my first full one betting sports. 

Thanks once again guys. Do you ever add units to a play you think is especially strong? I tend to try to bet the underdog if the odds are close to -200 because the odds are so bad. Especially if it's a matchup like Cincy vs. Houston or something. Is this the right kind of strategy? 

Haters get off me.

Thanks to you too Rooney. I usually have closer to a 100 unit bankroll so I'll try to stick to your 2 play limit per day so I don't bust in two weeks like usual. LOL.

Takes patience to hit a large parlay--and faith.

Same can be said for the tortoise approach. neither is widely advantgeous over the other, and each road has its own perils.

A parlay is putting a huge loot on one play--but w/o all the anguish of doing so; almost blindly betting. That last leg of an 8 teamer might be about a 5gs bet on a game to go over the total.
