1. so NYI is around a -300 favorite, do you have any figures on playing the ML when PL is over -200?

There really is no answer for that question. Even if I had a number for you, it wouldn't mean that it would never exceed that. We average 9 losses per season. When they happen is never the same. We could have all 9 early, then never see another one. Or go on a 100 game run then lose 9 of our next 10. I figure 9 losses on average, so have a bankroll large enough to cover the 9 losses happening as our first 9 games, which will never happen. Figure your bankroll and work backwards. Assume the average loss is 20 units, I believe it is lower, but it makes for easy math. I would need 180-200 units in my bankroll in case of disaster.

If I average 9 losses per season, and I lost all 9 games up front, I would be down 180 units. This is an unbelievable worst case scenario.

Now assume my starting bankroll was \$10000. I would need to be equal to about 200 units so the 180 unit loss wouldn't have wiped me out (10000/200=50). If I started with 5000, my units would be 25.

I would probably play \$50 units in this case. I play more, but I am a higher risk player.
Thanks buddy!

Not yet, but I will see if I can find time to look into that. Pretty much any game in hockey -150 or lower is -200 or more on puck lines. That is the large majority of the games, so I will assume the losses would be a lot greater for us, since the P/L bets came in play quite often in my tests.

** Do not place any wagers on teams unless you are sure your team is the dog or favorite. We will always play the M/L on favorites and (-110) games, and always play the (+1½) if the team we are betting on is a dog. ALL results will be based on this principle. If it is a close line game, you may want to wait til closer to game time to place your wager so you know whether or not we are on the (+1 1/2) or the (M/L).

If one of the teams we are playing switches from a favorite to a dog, or vice versa, after my initial post, make sure you get the appropriate line if it differs from what I have posted.

6. Yes

7. At odds well over -200, even (A) losses will add up quickly.

No different than JM plays. Just that there are more of them. If it's too much, pick one version or the other. Plus, we will be on the M/L of these close line games a lot too. It won't always be -200. That is what I was trying to say earlier. If the average loss is approx. 20 units, than the average single bet line is around -176. Pretty close to JM NBA (buy 3 point lines) are for a three game chase. We are playing games with a higher probability of winning, therefore, the lines will not be in our favor usually.

9. what do u recommend as starting bankroll
lets say if you have 1000 should u start with 10 as unit to win or 5 or ?

on the last page wallco recommended a bet size of \$50 for a 10k roll. he also added that he'd size his bets slightly larger than this, but he is a higher risk player.

I understand. I may have to adjust my unit size for these bets.

Definitely, at least until you get a feel for the system, any trends that may be found within the system, which is performing better v1 or v2, or until we have a decent chunk of the book's money, as where a loss will still leave us in the positive. I realized this last season when I was playing JM NHL. It had a great season, but there were times when we had a few open (B) and (C) bets. With the high juice, these can be larger amounts.
This was only the second time since all my backtest was done that a team lost a series after a three game losing streak and starting with the third game. Next year I may just have to say skip the first three games in both versions. See how everything plays out. We still have way too small of a sample to judge anything or increase our bet size. Play safe for now, 0.5% units (or 1 unit of 200 as described earlier). You can always raise it later, but when you raise it too early and lose it, it is gone.

Don't base the lines on your book, base them on who is favored or dog at Scoresandodds.com.
This is what the backtesting is done by, and all results are formulated from. Read the paragraph at the bottom of results post. It explains these questions.
Both games are currently at -115/+105.

19. Both games are at -110. Keep an eye on these two. We may be on the cheapest possible M/L or the most expensive P/L tonight.

20. It's looking like Florida will be a M/L play tonight. Unless something changes in the next 9 minutes.

21. Florida closed at a M/L play for 10/27/11. My earlier post has been corrected for this.

22. Florida were dogs when i went to bed, glad i took them on RL

23. test

24. Really good night, looks like some nice plays tonight also 

25. Just a quick Q:
In the V2 system description it reads: ' you will bet on that team to get a WIN in one of their next three games' That means to me to score more goals than their opponent
On the other hand the warning at the bottom of the posts is saying: 'We will always play the M/L on favorites and (-110) games, and always play the (+1½) if the team we are betting on is a dog' So if a v2 team is a dog (which they are likely to be) we need to use the puck line. The 10/26 Montreal play suggests this also when you played the puckline (however it was a huge win for the Habs.)
So after all, is the original description not valid in this question? What shall we play if a V2 team is underdog?

26. Win being a favorite outright or win being a dog, losing by no more than one. Don.t make it complicated. If our team is getting +1 1/2 and they lose by one goal, we WIN the bet, that is the whole point of the 1 1/2 goals.

28. Should there also be a play on Carolina under the v2 system? They have lost 3 straight and play Chicago tonight.

edit: OK, I think I see why they are not a play. The first game of their losing streak they were the dog and only lost by a goal - so they covered the 1 1/2 goal spread. They lost the next 2 as a favorite, so they could be a play if they lose tonight and don't cover.

Am I looking at this the right way?

31. The Detroit lines are not out yet. When they become available, I will fill in the blank spot next to Detroit.

32. Checking in for the first time. Hard to believe baseball finally ended last night. Who ever thought a month ago that St. Louis was going to add another flag to their titles?! Crazy. Well I typically don't bet hockey but no NBA has me doing nothing all week betting wise. Just saw your link in the other thread and thought I would check it out. Hope it stays "drama free" in here.

Me too. Good to hear from you again. I made the most money on JM NHL last year of all the systems I played. So I figured I would try to find something even better. Hopefully I have.
