    everyone's best bet

    Hey guys lets try this again. Everyone post their best bet of the day. Please only one bet. I'v been following college basketball for several years and use ken pom, power ratings and of course my own method. Yesterday I picked Temple which was a good pick and have made last four picks in a row. I have been staying above water for awhile. We need a couple more guys with a good % of the right picks to make some serious $$$$.

    hey hope I can join in, I like this idea it was good when gaze had it but he fell into the famous I lost a few let me bet 10 more games to try and recover fast trap most folks do!

    anyway I will post my best every day for sure
    lets start with today
    Kings +3 is a steal I have no idea how they are not favorites in today's games, I keep looking for injuries scratches anything. I mean they just played Charlotte and they were -6 at home , so how can they now be +3 away. anyway my pick is Kings+3

    hello Danshan11, I think this will work just fine. Glad you answered. Your right, Gaze had it but then he posted multiple picks and then everyone started picking more teams. You only need one pick to make some good cash. Once you start going bananas on other picks you start going in the hole. The other think that is the most important is discipline. Don't try to catch up with the games you lost. If you are good at picking then it will not take long to catch up. Does that make since?

    so the rules are only 1 pick unless you run into some mega super monster cant miss pick you missed earlier and in emergencies only.
    you can pick anything you want horeshoes to dog races as long as we can mostly all bet it somewhere legit. Raywinner will keep track of how it is going. best of luck all!

    I think the problem is that there is no such thing as a best bet, at least not on a daily basis. Who do you think the bookies are, a bunch of squares making huge mistakes left and right? How do you define a best bet? 60% winrate at -110? And if your second best bet is 59% is that not good enough?

    How can you be sure that the second best bet is actually weaker than your first bet? People get burned on their best pick in the BTP contest all the time. If everyone could easily separate the mediocre picks from good picks we'd all be rich.

    And what about value picks? Is a +250 dog considered a best bet when it has only a 38% chance to win? Anyway, I'll just watch from the sidelines because I'm cursed at the moment. But I wouldn't hold my breath about making stacks in this thread. I think the fact that there is no best bet thread after 10 years is proof enough. Just sayin.
