What can I say that hasn't already been said? This losing streak is rough. The new handicappers I started using for MLB made me money last week, while everything else that had picks lost money.
I made a total of 84 bets. I went 39-45, giving me a 46.4% win rate. I put a total of $4,175 into action, and made a net loss of -$285.25, producing a -6.83% ROI.
While I did bad in all sports last week, I did the worst in MLB. Yesterday was the start of the MLB season, and I increased betting volume a lot.
I made the most money at Bookmaker, while I lost the most money at Pinnacle. I made most of my bets Pinnacle last week.
I had 7 bets total for my free pick system, and I went 3-4, giving me a 42.9% win rate. I put a total of $349 into action, and I made a net loss of -$59.20, producing a -16.96% ROI.
I had 17 bets for my live betting system, and went going 8-9, giving me a 47.1% win rate. I put a total of $843 into action, and I made a net loss of -$82.44, producing a -9.78% ROI.
There were no MMA picks last week.
Last there, there were 4 picks, and they went 2-2, giving me a 50% win rate. I put a total of $200 into action, and made a net loss of -$15.62, producing a -7.81% ROI.
I bet you can already guess what I'm going to say about Tom.
Another losing week. Variance has been horrible for his picks. Horrible.
There were 36 picks, and he went 16-20, giving me a 44.4% win rate. I put a total of $1,789 into action, and made a net loss of -$138.31, producing a -7.73% ROI.
It's going to be interesting to see what happens with Kevin's site, since he announced that a friend of his was going to be taking over, and Kevin was going to be focusing his time on his marketing company instead. Since that announcement, no emails have been sent by the new guy, which isn't a good sign at all.
They had 19 picks, going 9-10, giving me a 47.4% win rate. I put a total of $945 into action, and made a net loss of -$34.23, producing a -3.62% ROI.
He had 1 pick yesterday, and it won. I put a total of $945 into action, and made a net profit of $44.55, producing a 90.92% ROI.

I have put a total of $52,318 into action, and have a made a net profit of $864.81, producing a 1.65% ROI.
The average odds of my bets are -104, and my average bet size is risking $46.38.
I have made the most profit in MMA, and NHL hockey has produced the worst return for me. Pro Computer Gambler has been a disaster for me so far. He's been responsible for the majority of my losses.
I made the most money placing my bets at BetOnline, and I've lost the most money at Pinnacle. I've made the most of bets at BetOnline, with Pinnacle coming in 2nd.
As for the individual system/handicapper results:

I really, really hope that the bleeding has finally stopped with MLB starting up. I told myself that I would give each handicapper a whole season, or 1,000 picks before making a final decision, but Pro Computer Gambler is killing me here.
He's lost me almost $2,000! I'm a third of the way to 1,000 picks already with him, and I really hope he can turn it around. If not, lesson learned, I suppose. He's incredibly streaky, that's for sure.
And now for the dreaded Performance Graph...
Look at how great I was doing!! I was knocking on 3 grand in profit not too long ago. Now the profit just keeps on trending downward. Easy come, easy go.
I have been at this for 119 days now. That's an average of 9.6 bets per day (this is only a high number because of the larger number of bets placed on the weekends, including MMA). My average daily profit currently sits at $7.27, which is an average monthly profit of $218.02.
Steve firmly believes that most meals can be improved with mac n cheese. When he's not helping people make money betting on sports, Steve loves mountain biking, playing video games with his son, & annoying his wife. Oh, and he's a big Dallas Cowboys fan. Don't hate.
