    Greeting Fellow Sports Investors

    I will be betting on Nitrogen this season, it is a bitcoin only site.

    My objective of posting is to keep me disciplined, which worked pretty well for me last season, I enjoy betting and my objective is to show a profit at the end of the season, I managed to win enough last season to get a new laptop.

    This year my objective is to win enough to get a new phone.

    I will post in units and each unit will be .01 BTC whatever that is is USD, atm is it $38USD.
    [I bought some bitcoin earlier in the year and the price of it really rocketed, it was around $900 in March and now the price is around $4000.]

    This season I will be looking for recency bias and media FUD to try and find value bets.

    BOL

    First official bet for the year.

    Houston Texans 2 units +217

    Texans have been getting plenty of hate since losing to the Jags last week. They were a playoff team last year and gave the Patriots a run for their money. Watson will be cool under pressure, he handled Alabama's pass rush 2 years in a row, he will be fine against the Bengals. Look for the Houston D to step it up, I will give them a Mulligan for last week's poor effort.

    Not certain, but at the odds [over +200] I really like Texans, even away from home.

    Bengals should improve from last week, but they can run hot or cold so just as likely to put in another stinker as to play a complete game, so I would like the Bengals at odds of -140 or better.

    I had never heard of Nitrogen before but now I'm intrigue by their adoption of bitcoin as their medium of exchange. This site has lacked a consistent measure of units that have been placed on game or event.

    I'm happy someone has chosen to use the new innovative payment network and a new kind of money.. Having a decentralized digital money will open up greater opportunities to shop for the best line. When you place your bet you are subject to price fluctuations in the Bitcoin spot rate on the Bitcoin exchanges is driven by many factors; Making the timing of placing a bet much another factor in the ROI of your wager.

    This will also give me a opportunity to evaluate the the different block chain standards as I am a investor in block chain technologies and have never been a owner of any cryptocurrency, and have so many questions about its adoption and the if its intrinsic value can be measured purely to the laws of supply and demand..

    I'm sorry i am on the other side tonight tailing a Teaxas fan who thinks the onslaught of injuries will be to much for the Texans,

    Thanks for your comment, Queen of Hearts uses Nitrogen as well.

    I agree blockchain is disruptive technology, secure, low cost financial transactions are only one of things it is useful for.

    I'm not worried about fluctuations in the BTC spot rate but it is volatile.

    I think Nitrogen is a good site, i think they get their lines from Pinny, and I think Nitrogen would be a good alternative to other offshore sites especially as anonymous. That is if people are able to get there head around the concept of Bitcoin,

    I'm not sure how easy it is to buy bitcoin in the US but i think it may be good to have few just in case you need them.


    Its really cool and completely anonymous, no KYC or ID details just sign up send some coin and you are in business. No BS.

    I live in New Zealand and we have the local TAB for our online sports betting and the lines suck big time. I used to use Centrebet but you have to change currency etc and withdrawals are a pain. Nitrogen was just so easy to sign up and start betting.

    About 1 minute to sign up, ie entering email address, and about 10 minutes to send the bitcoin over.

    Unlucky to be on the Bengals, they will probably beat the Packers next week. Houston's defence basically won them the game.

    Also I note, Jags are playing the vastly over rated Titans on Sunday and the Jags destroyed Houston last week, Bortles played fine and had 73 years in the first quarter. I expected the Jags to open as favorites. Houston won a playoff game last year, and are no gimme despite the FUD so may be worthwhile to have a look at Jags.

    Both Houston and Jags have been pretty heavily bagged by all the talking heads on TV and on talk sport radio. They seem to know as much about football as Mrs Frog.

    It's like the same stuff gets repeated over and over again that people start to believe all the BS.

    Enough ranting....

    Off to a promising start with the Texans playing bad and the Bengals playing slightly worse.

    1/0 +4.34 units

    This Sunday

    Jags 2 units - 104 [1.957 decimal]
    Vikings 1 unit +220
    Bears 1 unit +247


    Jags I think are still a bit under rated even at close to even vs the Titans, good defense and adequate offence. Tom Coughlins tough love approach seems to be paying dividends.
    Vikings played like champs last week, last year they started 5/0 so I expect them to kick on with a win, Steelers looked far from convincing last week against the Browns, should improve and are at home but at these odds Vikings look like value
    Bears pushed the super bowl runners up pretty close last week, up against media darling Jameis and the Buccaneers, I'll wait until the Bucs show something on the field, also very good value here for a pretty even 2 horse race

    I really like the Jags in this spot but am sticking to my plan and not loading up them.

    I'll wait couple of weeks before betting the points.

    Not the NFL

    Also I really like Triple G today vs Alvarez, he is a much bigger man and its likely he was fudging a little in his last couple of matches to make sure Alvarez took the fight. Alvarez has put on weight for the fight and his new muscles will tire after round 6. Golovkin should walk straight through him in the later rounds.

    I don't think it will be close but there should be good action in the early rounds.

    Well that sucked.

    Weekend got off to poor start when Triple G was robbed of a win, I think they may have been both looking ahead to the rematch

    Then woke up early [NZ time] to see not Sam Bradford playing QB for the Vikings and the Bears attempting to get the record for the number of turnovers in a game, and Jacksonville, well, just sucking. I thought I would hit at least one of these but they weren't even close.

    Notes: Denver played pretty well.



    So record now:

    1/3 +0.34 units

    Today

    SF ML 2 units +131 [2.305]

    Under 1 unit -102 [1.976]

    If Hoyer can make a few plays 49ers have good chance, run game is solid. Goff still has to get his head straight.

    Can't see a lot of points, 49ers held Seahawks to zero touchdowns.
