    Find those offering free picks who are good to follow or good to fade.

    Long term winners & long term consistent losers/squares.

    Bet numbers, not teams

    Live betting tip, Watch games closely on TV and bet against what just happened. TEAM A just scored, bet TEAM B if you originally liked team B anyway and the spread/total is better than the closing line.

    Learn to live bet CBB, watch the games. If you have a decent eye you can spot things the LIVE betting algorithm will miss.

    NEVER CHASE

    NEVER BET ON GAMES just because they are on TV or if you are bored.

    Dont bet against a HOT TEAM

    "...bankroll management is more important than the bets you make...If you don't have the right mindset, be prepared for gambling to be nothing more than an expensive hobby."


    ------------

    "Sports betting isn't just about picking winners...It takes- discipline- money management- hard work- persistence - stoicism- patience- commitment- sacrifice among other things to be successful in turning a profit long term"

    X-Hole


    this pathetic soul spends his entire day every day looking for bad news to post at theRx


    The epitome of a loser

    I'm having sooo much fun! How about some truths, instead of lies:


    Loser? Really?


    I won 200 units from Dec.19 thru Feb/20.


    Karma:


    Before that in 2019 i helped rxers win many units & thousands of dollars through sports threads, such as this NFL thread:


    http://www.therxforum.com/showthread...734&highlight=


    Which got over 70,000 views.


    Dozens of people were PMing me for info.


    One source's picks i posted hit over 80% in the NFL.

    know your weaknesses. i don't flat bet
    i know i'm a 50% bettor. money is only made if i maximize my earnings on wins and minimize my losses. as said earlier by exploited, don't bet to win but instead bet the edge advantage.

    lol didn't realize this was an old bumped thread.

    The problem with the fading/following of posters strategy is the amount of time a person has to spend in front of a computer to do it.

    Fading/following a high volume poster means sitting in front of the computer 10+ hours a day on weekends hitting refresh, and another 4 hours a day during the week. It becomes a full time job.

    And if you follow a poster who bets baseball, it's an every day all day thing.

    Not many people want to do that.

    Following people who post throughout the day can be time consuming. Ideally one would receive notifications whenever these people post. Though i wonder who is going to sit there all day constantly refreshing the screen for 10 hours. Checking in at intervals of 15, 30, 60, or 120 minutes etc would be more likely & make more sense. For example knowing the start times for NFL or MLB games, one could check 15 or 30 minutes before a game (or games) start to see if the capper has added any picks for those particular games, or any that may be starting later in the day.

    This x1000.

    The AFL was a gold mine during the 2000s. Massive line moves, books not having good info, and a lot of dumb money.

    Esports and FCS aren't difficult to beat if you take time with them.

    You are absolutely right, I think it would be first to analyze the market (time to update people). What do you say? It's a good idea?

    yes, but they can cost more than usual. Because Amazon and eBay are competitors, and delivery fees are much higher than usual

    IMHO situations are more important than statistics. An example was last years SB.

    The 9ers were statistically the better team. Offensively they were about even but
    but defensively they appeared to be superior.

    The angle that I saw was the 9ers were just happy to be there after going 4-12 the
    year before.

    K.C. on the other hand had something to prove after not getting there the year before
    losing to N.E.

    Money management is important, never ever wager more than you can afford to lose but
    when you get on a roll increase your bets. However when that roll ends don't chase.

    And last but not least and some of you will say this is silly but I'd rather be lucky than good.

    Remember that the next time you suffer a bad beat.

    The AFL is still one of the easier sports to beat IMO

    Are you talking about the Arena Football League or Aussie League?

    I stopped with AFL altogether when two groups owned all the teams in the league. They declared bankruptcy last year and just had a sale of all their assets.

    AFL in the 2000s was a gold mine. 14-point line moves weren't uncommon. Great times.

    Only thing like that now is Esports. Easiest money I've ever made was on a CS:GO match last year. There was a team participating in a tournament that had one of their players leave after the rosters were locked. They had to bring back a player that had quit CS:GO to start playing another game (I think Overwatch). He was guilted into doing it and came in with a name like "I Hate CS:GO" or "CS:GO is stupid". After his team fell behind 7-1, he started teamkilling his teammates. Incredible to watch.

    Additionally, multiple Chinese Esports have problems with match fixing. If you are active on Weibo or Twitter, you can find some interesting shit

    In Chinese basketball with Team A vs Team B bet:

    1. Team A under 120 +100 &
    2. Team B over 112 +100

    Bet $1000 on each. There's a free shot to win 20 units.

    That's an illustration of how i won 200 units in just 3 months from Dec.1 last year.

    Bet one game a day, maybe two. Bookmakers hate this, you can knock them for a dime or two a week if they have bad lines. Bookies want the circus parlay’s and clowns that bet the board.
