    During NFL ,how much games per week do you bet on av.? Son I bet usually 3 games per week on an average.


    and what is your take on betting an average of 15-20 games (spreads and totals)for the same wager?

    I think beting that many games is way too many as the vig will get you in the long run. Now if you can get like -102 at Carib on Fridays I would say go for it otherwise I would bet no more than 3. Betting the same amount on each game is an excellent thing.

    I mean I have been stupid an bet full college boards in foots when I was getting hammered during the week to try and get out butI would not advise this type of behavior. I got a way with it because I am a pro and get the moves early so I have a slight edge.

    On Saturdays in foots most of the time I bet 2-5 games.

    Son? anyway my take is ,Lets say I start a bank roll of 3,000 for NFL and wager 2% of that per game ( av 20 games per week between totals and spreads) all I have to do is win 11 games out of 20 games to break even or maybe even come out with a small profit. Now if you have the right inputs and a pro status as you say you are ...work out the long term results!!That 30k could do alot of damage

    Do you know how hard it is to go 11-9??

    How about when you go 7-13??

    Then the next week you have to go 14-6 to break about even

    Not hard if you could read the lines and a good crapper with a little inside scoop....

    If you were able to do that consistently, you wouldn't only have a $3000 bankroll.

    I'm not knocking you, just stating the obvious. Going 11-9 every week is much more difficult than you make it out to be. Hell, going 2-1 isn't a piece of cake either. But if you are playing 20 games a week, you will have a very hard time showing a profit over the long haul.

    bottom line is this, the more games you play the more you will end up losing over the long term period.

    you have to be very selective with your wagers or, you will not profit from all your hard work into capping the games.

    For me, it works out to an average of about 8 plays a week on NFL.

    My take on betting 15-20 games is it's great if you've got that many working angles. I have 3 main angles that I use that generate my (roughly) 8 plays a week. And I know that I'm going to hit about 57% long term. But if I discover more angles that hit at 57% long-term - and I sincerely hope I do - I'd gladly place twice or 3 times that many bets.

    But they would have to be well-researched, proven angles. If you're just placing bets for the sake of placing bets then that doesn't sound like a good plan to me.

    It all depends who's making the plays, if its BW the more games he bets the more to his advantage.
