Most people are really bad at betting on sports.
Just go to any sports betting forum, and you'll see all the posts about bad beats or guaranteed lock picks (that usually lose).
Gambling meccas like Las Vegas or Macau exist for one reason: because most people lose.
I’ve been trying to beat the sports betting game for a long time now. It’s only until the past couple of years that I actually got disciplined enough to start thinking that I could actually be able to (one day) quit my job and bet on sports for a living.
My original plan was to start with a $2,000 bankroll and turn it into $1 million dollars within 10 years.
It sounds crazy, doesn't it?
That you could actually start with $1,000 (and a ton of patience) and turn it into $1,000,000 in just 11 years seems like one of those things that are just too good to be true.
We all know somebody that's really bad at picking winners, right?
Hell, maybe you're that loser! (don't worry if you are; I used to lose like crazy until I got disciplined and figured this whole sports betting thing out).

I've heard it time and time again that parlays and teasers are sucker bets, but I have no problem using them for +EV (positive expected value) bets.
What a spectacular month August was! I went on one heck of a winning run, and made the most profit in a single month that I've made since I started this site (I tripled my previous best month!).
July could've gone either way, but I did manage to pull out a small profit. Better than a loss, though, right? I was travelling for much of July, so I kept it simple and only bet on my own systems this month. I didn't make a single bet on any of the handicappers that I follow, and I actually really enjoyed it.Continue reading
June was another winning month, and I couldn't be happier with the results. It did about the same as what May did, and I hope that July produces an even greater return. I did make a few changes in June, and I think it's going to produce an ever greater income, while minimizing my exposure.Continue reading
