Sat Feb 16:
morning all, this will be my year long thread and will also include my CBB Daily work sheet as well as all the tracking
picks etc until the start of MLB and will than include the PDWS (pitcher data work sheet) plus any type games or bets
that are money making opportunities that might come our way
The objective of this thread is as follows:
My first post of the day will include have the date and day in the title, so that you will only need to go back a few
posts to see anything new for the day
Any Rx members are welcome to post info in this thread on any subject. Feel free to ask any questions you might have
regarding capping MLB, or any other sport as well. If I don’t know the answer, I’ll sure find someone that does. I’ve
lived in Vegas for many years, and still have some great contacts and information sources, so feel free to ask any
questions. only dumb question are one's you dont ask.
THIS IS YOUR THREAD. SAME AS WITH LIFE, YOU GET OUT WHAT YOU PUT IN!!!
This is NOT a “I give out my picks thread”. You have a enough dumb fucks already doing that, so follow or FADE one of
them. Here we will be collecting key data that will be used to make betting decisions.
Last year I created a excel spreadsheet that has no equal when it comes to data and analysis. This is the basis for all
the analysis i do b4 i make any decisions etc. The the complete program and file from last year is 2460 rows and obrt
520 col of individual game data, and calc giving us about 1.3 million points of data. and over 100 key pivot tables
for the analysis of this information. I'll post the complete spreadsheet with all macro's in the next posts.
It will be over 50 MB is size by season end.
If you dont have Excel (Using 2007 Version) or dont know how to use it, dont waste your time and bandwidth d/l it as it
will be an anchor taking up space on your hard drive. The base file will stay on the Rx thru the end of April and my
daily files will stay on site for D/L about 7 days. I only use the daily to update my YTD data base. I will NOT
update any 2009 data bases or pivot tables. It will be up to anyone that wants data to take my daily data and add it to
there own data base in whatever format they want.
I'm not a programmer, but i do know how to use Excel and it's features to make it easy to collect data and information.
The key to being successful if to gather info as fast and easy as possible. You can only make money the old fashion
way. Working for it, no free lunches when it comes to betting any sport.
Contributions come in many sizes and forms. Quality posts and information posted in the thread is #1. From prividing
key links were the everyone can get information and data eg. The key players spent the night in the drunk tank etc
In previous years i had people helping to collect data and information, but right now my programs have evolved to the
point where it takes less than 2 mins to gather all the data and information i need to start my daily analysis. There
might be times when key opportunities come up where some special effor is required, but i dont see need for this at
Rx said that i'll have 35 MB of available space for daily download of spreadsheets and data so let give it a try. the
2nd post in this thread will be the MLB 2008 master files (hope the upload works). so if you think you know how to use
excel have at. i know there will be a bunch of things on it you dont understand etc, so let the questions began.
almost 15 days to understand the basics etc so fire away
tks and glta
p.s. dont look for great grammer or correct spelling etc. as i tend to fat finger or type faster than i can think as
well as drink and drive etc. mater updates end of April if 100,000 hits by April 1st, than 100,000 per month after that.
links to an old read me file on the various cols in the master (about 300 have been added since it's creation, no time to update the read me. if it's not clear ask. i try to use the common sense approach to namine letters vs a full description
also mlb park zip codes to find key weather related info
