I started out in sports betting, like most of us did , by making bets off my own basic knowledge of teams or my feel for a game that I was going to be wagering on. And you know, I had some winning days and some losing days like most of us do early on in our betting career.
But in general I was losing more than I would win. And at that point, 13 years ago, I was betting literally everything from 8 team parlays to 6 teamteasers. I mean, you name it, I was just trying to find any way that I could win. Fast forward a few years after that, I wanted to switch up my approach because that was getting old and I was just tired of losing on a consistent basis every month.
I was very, very frustrated and I decided to take a more serious approach to see if I could find the perfect mix between using the knowledge that I had of sports and particularly basketball, and to also come up with my own model to help me gain an edge versus the bookmakers. So it wasn’t a quick process, but after extensive research and a lot of trial and error building and retooling my model, I’d come up with my own formula that had helped me obtain my first winning season and betting sports on a daily basis.
And then fast forward to present day, I’ve now had five straight winning years in NBA and college basketball so, I’m looking forward to repeating that again this year.
