You are not a better gambler because you play one game per day. A good gambler manages his or her money which is the only thing that matters. There are different strategies and those strategies work differently for each individual. Maybe you should play less money and a couple more games. Or maybe you’re really bad and shouldn’t play at all. Or maybe you’re good at picking a single game. But not everyone is. You can play one play a day in NBA and lose 4 days straight at $100 dollars a day. Now your down $440 dollars if the odds are -110 per $100 dollars you wager. Now I can play 7 plays a day at the same rate and go 4-3,  5-2, 6-1, 3-4 in those same four days and I’m looking much better than you are. Just cause you play 1 game a day doesn’t mean you’re doing better than me. In fact you’re actually decreasing your odds of winning which is actually what the books want. I’m not saying bet 100 games. But if you like 3,4, or 5 games then bet on all of them equally. And if $100 is too much to bet on each of those let’s say 5 games then reduce your bet to $20-$30 dollars or whatever you’re comfortable with. I’m only making $30-$100 dollars a day on a winning day but I’m doing it consistently. Your bookie would hate if you bet the entire board and every day he had to cash you out. I don’t bet the entire board but I cap 5,6,7,8, etc games I like. If I feel good about it I bet them all. If I don’t I may eliminate the ones I want to eliminate. It works for me. Long story short. Do what works for you. This is my style. If you don’t like it then do it your way. But don’t think because you bet one game a day you’re gonna be a winner. Follow a few people on covers. You’ll see that’s not so. You’ll also notice the majority of people on here talking the crap they talk don’t post plays and/or keep track of their record. But they can tell you all they know about discipline on the longest losing streak you can imagine.

You giving advice like people want it or care what you have to say. You hold no weight on this forum. Especially after a tough day like you had today, no need to seek attention to feed your ego. Just post your plays and do you. You do way too much. Grind in silence. peace_5

hahaha...but there is a huge sample size that you have created that shows that YOU ARE LOSING playing a vast array of games daily so why wouldnt you consider that it may be time for a change??its very simple,einstein..the books DO NOT make a whole lot of "errors/mistakes" in their lines so it is foolish to think you can eke out an edge on a greater volume.your better chance is to hone in and target one spot every now and then that you feel you really like and then hope for the best that the team will show up for you the way you anticipate.

 

you wrote the words "it works for me"....wut????confused...no,it doesnt...it DOESNT work for you.as proven over a pretty good sample size...unless of course you are just in it for fun and shi.ts'n'giggles which is all fine and dandy.but the way you speak suggests you think you are a real winner that is getting ahead here and not just "playing around".

 

and im just speaking logic and facts,not "talking crap" as you say...the very reason i don t post plays is because my record would likely be average or crappy,LIKE YOURS ISan_speak...so i dont bother as its not really helping anyone.but one thing i sure as fucc wouldnt do is gloat or crow like a rooster over how great i am when im only hitting a coinflip %.

 

i tell you what,why dont you carry on doing what you are doing as normal,and then at the same time keep a parallel running record of your best/favourite play each day (or put in one continuous separate thread) and see how those POD results compare??who knows what it will result in,but i would almost bet the lesser approach will bring better success.

Every play added decreases your chances of winning... It’s just simple math... That’s why books offer parlays.... Bol

@masterkush

 I think you have a 50/50 shot. I’m not talking parlays. I’m talking equal bets on multiple single team bets. If you bet the entire board of let’s say 14-15 games and go 8-7 it’d really not worth the risk. But if you bet anywhere between 3-8 games and you can hit better than 50 percent on a consistent basis the outcome pays off. After the break I added something to the way I go about these games and I’m at 55% which really isn’t all that bad. But the percentage continues to rise and I’m not losing juice since I am on the winning side more often than the losing side. Again that’s since the break. Had I applied my strategy earlier in the season when it started things may have been different. I’m roughly even for the season now. With the season winding down I can make some decent change if I up my bets a few more dollars. 

Let’s assume I’m risking -110 on each game to win $100 just to make the math easier, which I’m not. I’m in the $30-$50 dollar range. Now let’s say you cap each game to your best and you only profit the minimum. This is what it would look like. I’ve been doing this the entire time since the break and the results have only improved.

 

2-1wins $190

3-1 wins $290

3-2 wins $80

4-1 wins $390

4-2 wins $180

4-3 wins $70

5-1 wins $490

5-2 wins $280

5-3 wins $170


This is the range I want to be in. It’s very profitable. After 8 games it gets a lot more risky. I know this seems risky but it’s more realistic that we can reach these kind of numbers if you watch the game and/or cap the games enough. Most of us just aren’t willing to risk it. However if you had a large enough bankroll and you tailed me this month you could have made thousands at $100 per game or tens of thousands at $500 dollars per game. I am at my peek during this time of the season when it’s normally harder to win. I’ve seen many posts saying how hard it’s been this month and I’m not trying to brag but I’ve made it look easy the month of April. The 1st day of this month wasn’t good but I’ve seen much worse days. This is a stark improvement for me and those who’ve followed me know the results have been good this month. I was hovering around .500 coming into April and now sit 34 games above .500.

You may not agree with my strategy but the results are proof that something is working. And I have a good feeling about today’s card. Early in the week is when I’m at my best. I hope this run continues.

The next time you’re in some house game and someone wants to deal BJ without no cap try this. This is just an example. If you the only one winning the dealer will most likely not care so long as the other players are losing. Regardless it works

Bet $10. If you lose bet $20. If you lose that bet $40. If you lose that bet $80. If you win you’re up $20 dollars. Once you win you bet $10 dollars again. Don’t bet more than $10 until you lose. When you lose repeat this pattern. It’s very simple. You cannot lose if you follow this pattern unless you’re having the absolute worst day in your life. I do this for fun in house games starting with $1 and walk away with $50+ dollars all the time. I’d make more if the game didn’t end, or played more money using the same pattern. Trust me it works. It’s just no one thinks of this and greed becomes part your nature people don’t bet disciplined. 

Disciplinary betting is important. You can bet more games and make money if you’re betting with discipline and your money can last. If not you won’t have any money at all to bet.

I don't know what's worse, a gambler knowingly using a martingale or one who have never heard of such a system and thinks they have discovered it on their own.

why do you care what I’m doing? Don’t try and flip the script like I care what others do. I’m sharing what I do. If you don’t like it beat it and stop asking questions.

 Never claimed this was a money system I “created”. I have a system I use for capping. This is how I actually place my bets and it works is all I’m saying.
