Earn it! Part of the fun of winning is the "unknown". If it were a guarantee I think more joy would come from putting in physical effort to obtain it.



Agree. It would be more rewarding with a feeling of accomplishment.

It's a quote from the movie The Color of Money

I'm aware of that. I was saying your posts sounded familiar just a diffrent sport and personal background. I think his name was Zourah.

I thought I seen someone here with that tagline as well, no doubt many people like it.

Okay... I'll try to decipher this cryptic lingo.

You got three columns: Win, Lose, Draw
Sides refers to which team won.
Totals refers to total points scored
Overall is a Running Total of your net financial gain.
And you are betting something called "units" so that its sort of like a Black Chip. Its atleast a hundred dollars but you can put down more than one such chip if you want to.

You got it my man. Wasn't sure how to best keep track for ease of understanding. Anyone who follows can make their "unit" whatever they like. I bet a % of bankroll on my plays and adjust the bankroll daily, but didn't want to get confusing so kept it simple.

So is there no vig when you bet? For every 10 losses of 1 unit, there would be a unit lost to vig..

Zcore,

Of course....hence my record on totals of 4 wins and 4 losses

4 wins = +4 units and 4 losses = -4.4 I am currently -0.4 units

On sides....I have 5 wins = +5.2 units (one of my wins was on the money line at +120 odds meaning I risked 1 unit to win 1.2 units that my team would win straight up, no point spread) and 1 loss -1.1 units giving me a total of +4.1 units

I am basing them all on the standard -110 line for point spreads which is 10% vig or "juice"

thanks,

RD

Got it. If you click on my screen name and then the "My Blog" link, you can see the blog I kept here for a while on UFC betting.

So the amount you will be betting will be diffrent each day?

Will we know in advance how much you will be betting on each game before you bet?

Will there be some bets made that you don't post about? Because we all love a good story of how someones posted up picks lost for the season, however they made a bunch of big non-posted bets and made up for losses and they even won for the season.
