Once you get a high enough balance, yes.

Slow and steady rise with the heavy fave's. It's possible you have found value with an underestimation of how much better the good teams are than the bad ones. I think you have good value on this bet. I think the Lakers will end up being the best team in the NBA this year. The Bulls, not so much!

It's slow and steady until he hits a streak of 2 upsets in a row. Then it's back to even.

The perils of betting huge favorites.

A betting method where you wager on the much better team.. to just win the game.

How did nobody ever think of this before

Of course I don't actually believe he has an edge..... But..... If you read my full short post, I did put in a POSSIBLE explanation for him having an advantage. There are some teams that have NO stars, and others with two or three, and the NBA it is the stars that win or lose games, moreso than NFL, as an example. I think it is POSSIBLE that the money line odds are not in tune with the tremendous disparity of talent levels of the teams.
I have called him out on posting a W/L record, as when betting ML it is totally irrelevant. But he is showing exactly how many pennies he is betting, and how many pennies he is winning or losing. This is a harmless thread.

I do not have an edge in picking. I am no better at picking winners or losers than the next person. Whether an individual game will win is not why I pick what I do. I know nothing about the players on any team.

I will stop posting W-L. I agree it is a harmless thread. As I said at the beginning, the only reason I am doing this is to go on the record publicly to make me be honest with myself. I canít fudge results if I have declared my picks prior to each game.
