Hi,

 

waiting for the MLB to start, I started yesterday to put one of my systems also into a NBA. In MLB it was quite successful for several year, yet I made a break for 2-3 years. Got a child, had no time to follow my strategies properly, lost dumb money, decided to give it some time. So, now I'm back an will try to revive my systems, that need the least effort to maintain :)

It's a classic 3-game chase, based on my Powerrankings and backtesting was quite promising. Now, I'm going for a 

 

first live-test. 

MLB is a little bit stronger regarding strike-rate (avoiding a sweep is quite a motivation it seems), but NBA is 

 

ATS and Total, so odds help to reduce the effect of lost series.

 

I'll use a bank of 1,000 units, aiming to win one unit per game played.

I will post my bets and my results here, if you are interested in discussion, please feel free to join.

 

Powerrankings are based on several absolute and relative statistics (e.g. total Def-Rebounds makes no sense to me - 

 

I like the Def Reb / Opp Off Reb-Ratio much more).

 

With best regards,

Thasian

 

 

First games were yesterday:

 

Lakers Under WON

Fade Knicks WON

 

Fade Suns LOST -1.14U -> B-Bet on 03/16/2019

Rockets Over LOST -1.01 -> B-Bet on 03/17/2019

 

Current result of Series finished:

A: 2 

B: 0

C: 0

Lost: 0

 

+2U

So, Rockets go to C.. very early, but as stated in the first post: Even some losers are expected. So lets see if they go back to high-scoring against the Hawks tomorrow.

 

Raptors.. well.. losing Q4 by 9 points, I had some hope after they rebounded in Q3 and took the lead..

The Cav'S win surprised me. Let's see if they can keep it up against the Buck.
Under of Warriors/Spurs was okay - I think against the Twolves we will a LOT of scoring. I adjusted my PRs a little bit, an had Warriors/Spurs not as the Over-pick it was before, but still. The chase should be okay.

A: 5

+12.0

Running Series:
A: - (but some upcoming, I'll see to post them about 4:30 to 5pm latest..)

Two series lost. Well - in MLB, I already avoided Totals, but though NBA may be more constant.. so - no more Totals after the current series are finished.
Anyway: Still on track, losses happen, will continue :)

Portland losing by 10 in the last quarter was a little annoying.

-30.66

 

Without totals:

Stopping tracking now.

Doesn't work on ATS as good as I'd like.

Moneyline seems to work as it does in MLB, but I'm not willing to pay the extreme lines.

e.g. raptors, current series:

A: 1.69 to win 1.00

B: 14.39 to win 3.69

C: With a line of -13.5 probably something about 293.54 to win 19.08
