2 winning weeks in a row feels so nice, especially after having so many losing weeks in a row. I'm so, so close to doubling my bankroll, and I'm really excited about that. Making this blog has been one of the keys to my success: holding myself accountable.Continue reading
Last week's "back to basics" cleanup made this week much more enjoyable. I didn't put in as much action, and I made a profit. Making $150 in a week doesn't seem like much, especially considering how much time I put into this, but then when I think of where I'm going to be in a year, it makes me really excited.Continue reading
Sports betting has a certain allure to it. And I get it; money won is twice as sweet as money earned. People have dreams of being able to quit their jobs and just bet on their favorite sports for a living. If only it were that easy.Continue reading
I spent some time over the weekend going over all my stats, and it made me realize that most of my profits have come from my own systems and the MMA handicappers that I pay for. So why am I trying so hard to do what everybody else has tried to do (and failed)?Continue reading
My bankroll is recovering very nicely since I got rid of Pro Computer Gambler. It sucks how much time and money I wasted, but nothing I can do about that now. I added a few more European handicappers to my portfolio, and I look forward to their results.Continue reading
It's hard to sell sports picks. You have to have thick skin, and your customers will abandon you at the first hint of a losing streak.

I've won more money than I've lost. I have the stats, records and graphs to prove it. It's still hard to lose.
It's easy to get cocky and over-confident when your bets are winning and your bankroll keeps growing.

Update September 2018
Tom reached out to me and has given me access to his picks for 1 year. Apparently there was an email issue and he never saw my replies. I have started tracking his picks (although I'm not currently betting them), and I will update monthly with how his picks are doing.
I really didn't want to write this post, but enough is enough.
After a truly horrendous run, including going 1-7 one day this week, PCG released 17 picks in one day!
