    Labby for MLB Dog plays only

    I've been playing MLB dogs and been having a decent amount of success thus far. I am really trying to focus on money management as that has been my biggest downfall in years past. As such, I am trying to apply a Labby line but have some questions and am looming for any guidance / help / suggestions / etc that anyone can provide (and hopefully help some others along the way).

    As I mentioned, I am playing only MLB underdogs and wagers are all "to risk" amounts. I have been playing 2-6 games per day and for my amount, take the last two numbers, add them together, and play that amount for each game. I'm a bit unsure how to cross off numbers and how to add them to the end because the plays are all +$$$ plays. Beacuse I am playing multiple dogs, I am basically trying to adjust the line based on the net performance each day.

    So say I end a day 3-2 but up 5.5 units. I am playing a line of 10 1's (1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1) would cross off 6 of them but add 0.5 at the end. And if I lose, because I am playing multiple games, I would divide up a days total loss and add it to the end not as one number but separate units as well.

    Sorry if this is confusing - as you can tell, I'm searching for the best approach and any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    The best approach involves not using any dumb ass progressive "money management" system.

    If you don't know your edge bet to win 2% of bankroll until you do, then bet a Kelly fraction.

    In the words of that great song by Woody, "Kelly Kelly Kelly Kelly Kelly Kelly Kelly Kelly Kelly Kelly...."

    Can we just sticky this in a locked thread called 'Read before creating a thread about money management'?

    But then I'd have to venture elsewhere to engage in my hobby of trying to find ways to insult people and be helpful simultaneously.
