    Hey guys,

    New poster here, who has been betting on sports for over fifteen years. I have been wanting to join and post my picks for months now but I am a very disciplined handicapper who follows strict money management and who sets goals for each year - so I felt it was best that I hold off until the New Year. I'm happy to be here and i'm looking forward to getting to know all of you in this upcoming year.

    2019 Plan:
    The goal, every year, is to win 55% of our wagers at -110 odds in an effort to double our starting bankroll.

    ∑ Starting Bankroll = $5,000
    ∑ Expected Profit = $5,000
    ∑ Finishing Bankroll = $10,000


    All wagers are to win 3% of our starting bankroll / therefore $150.
    If you choose to follow, please note that you can use a larger or smaller bankroll, as it fits your financial needs. Simply divide your starting bankroll by 33.3 to determine how much you should be betting to win on each wager. Ie. With a $1,000 starting bankroll, you would be betting to win $30 on each wager as 1000/33.3 = 30.

    What to expect?
    Regular Season:
    Projected Wagers = 500 / Projected Win % = 55% at -110 odds / Projected Profit = +82.5 units or +$4,125

    ∑ NBA = 150 (6 per week, Monday-Saturday, skipping a week)
    ∑ NHL = 150 (6 per week, Monday-Saturday, skipping a week)
    ∑ MLB = 150 (6 per week, Monday-Saturday, skipping a week)
    ∑ NFL = 50 (3 per week, 2 in week 17)

    Systems / Tournaments / Playoffs
    Projected Wagers = 100 / Projected Win % = 55% at -110 odds / Projected Profit = +17.25 units or +$825 units


    ∑ MLB Systems = 55 wagers (approx.)
    ∑ NCAA March Madness = 10 wagers
    ∑ NCAA Bowl Games = 5 wagers
    ∑ NBA = 10 wagers
    ∑ NHL = 10 wagers
    ∑ MLB = 5 wagers
    ∑ NFL Playoffs = 5 wagers

    Each week, on Sunday, Iíll do a recap of the past weeks results and a preview of what to expect in the upcoming week (number of picks + goal for the week)!

    What to Expect in the month of January:
    55-56 bets (25 NBA + 25 NHL) *One pick, per sport, from Monday-Saturday (two days of no picks per sport)!*
    + 1 CFB Bowl bet and 4-5 NFL Playoff bets.

    One day at a time,
    Lucky Sharp

    Welcome Lucky!

    Quick question..your units/dollars are different by sport? You posted 3 units = 300 in hockey but 3 units = 150 here. Just checking that is correct
    GL throughout the year!

    Hey Ecco. Thanks for noticing and for keeping me honest. I made a mistake when posting in the NHL forum as I only had minutes until puck drop and wanted to get the pick posted. I noticed afterwards but couldn't figure out how to edit my post. I am actually risking slightly more as my bankroll is higher than $5000; because it it was carried over from 2018 when I wasn't posting here. I chose $5,000 as my bankroll on here, as it is close to my actual bankroll and is a clean number. I mentioned in the first post that all bets are to win 3% of the starting bankroll and therefore $150 (for record keeping purposes). This shouldn't happen again as most days I place my bets the night before and/or hours before the games start - but I was busy putting together the first post. However, please let me know if I ever make a mistake again as it is appreciated. Thanks for the welcome!
