    Help a new guy out.

    Just entertaining the idea of starting to bet on a regular basis. I have a few questions for some of the more seasoned vets.

    *is it better to bet just 1 or 2 games you like a week or to spread that money over several games?

    *what is the chances of obtaining any sort of sustainability in the long term?

    Handicap games until you perceive value and bet them. Profit has no schedule.

    There are no correct answers to these questions.

    Everyone is different.

    It's all about finding what you perceive to be value, Wildcorndog.

    I bet big on 1 game.... It wasn't skill I didn't start out with $100 and make 15k. I have a good job so I have the money. It was probably luck now I'm looking for direction going forward.

    Do you think it's better to try to find the upset every week or go with the common sense bet?

    Bet as much or as little as you want, but I wouldn't recommend betting anymore then 5% of your bankroll on a wager.

    If I bet no more that 5% on any one game then it will take alot of correct bets to double my bankroll unless I start betting parlays.... I was thinking it may be better to stager your bets according to your convictions on a particular spread up to %50 of your bankroll. I just don't see how someone can keep a winning percentage over 100 strait up bets.

    Common sense bet. Just like NDSU went down to KState and owned em.

    NDSU were national champs for crying out loud. Easy win for NoDak backers.
