NBA Half-Time


I was comparing the first half of this NBA season with last year, (I do love my stats), and I am slightly up (2.22%), but one thing I hadn’t realized before today was that I actually lost money after the All-Star break last season. The remainder of the regular season was profitable, but it appears my strategies don’t work so well in the play-offs (where I lost 12.57% of my profits) for some reason.

Fore-warned is fore-armed they say, and the great thing about bad losses is that they are so much easier to improve on. Simply staying out of the play-offs will work in fact!

I've noticed this trend in other sports as well. As a general rule, it is easier for me to make money in lower profile games than in 'big' games.

The numbers in "big games" are always very tight. Finding a hole to exploit is next to impossible - I only make small bets on playoff games to share some interest in it.

Robert, you should consider putting a book together - the amount of pulp available with any true insights on sports exchanges is virtually non existent.
