Yea man ... But I'm contemplating on how I am going to continue to do it.

Trying to decide whether or not to keep betting what I previously won, or keep starting over at 100 after every 100 I make, so that I don't take one bad beat, and lose it all.


I wouldn't go that route. Just use confidence points and increase your bets accordingly.

"Is there any reasonable chance that [team x] loses this game"?

"If they played 100 times, would underdog [team y] even win 5 games"?

Just keeping asking questions like this. Let the answers guide you.

At some point you'll take a bad beat. Just know that it will happen. And it's for that reason that people think betting on the ML is risky. I look at it a different way. Betting on the ML is safe because I'm winning all my games. And so I'm continuing to accumulate money and increase my bankroll such that a bad beat isn't really all that bad.

Sometimes you have to be willing to pull the trigger on a play for an amount you're not comfortable with.

You think I didn't have reservations about putting 300 dollars on Serena Williams at -900? But that's fear talking. That's not your rationale. Your rational brain knows Serena is going to win 6-0, 6-1 in about 25 minutes, and so you make the play.

Yeah that was my reasoning, Hawaii is just awful. And yeah -22 is a lot of points but I think they cover easy. I'm leaning Air Force -22 & TT O41

Shiyyeett...Hawaii has lost by 35+ to any team they've played that has a pulse.

But you could go an entire CFB season without taking a bad beat. Or maybe taking just one (which would be a great season).

My point....is that don't expect the bad beat to come. It isn't like rolling dice at a craps table. You could hit 40 MLs in a row without worrying about inevitability. Every ML play is a win -- there's no risk involved. If you're picking wisely, that is.

That's how I think about it, at least. I told my buddy how much I had on FSU on the ML, and he was like "so your'e risking 2K to win 400", and I responded: "No, I'm not risking anything. FSU is gonna win the damn. I'm just collecting 400."

It's a good mindset to have.

Who wants to put 200 dollars on Air Force at the ML?

Don't be scared of that -1500 number. It only comes into play when you lose. And Hawaii ain't winning this game, ladies and gentlemen.
