    Seriously. And I think it's only going to get worse as we move forward.

    I can't believe the changes COVID forces on us weekly.

    Yep

    Chargers have the worse coach in NFL. This guy actually had the field goal team coming out with 3 seconds left.

    Arizona missing winning field goal

    1-2 early games.

    Looking at a potential 2nd half play with Tampa vs Chiefs.

    Looking back at this thread and the posted teams it is amazing how many brutally close calls and bad breaks there are and yet overall the thread has a positive ROI. I know, I know...everyone can say the same thing regarding their gambling choices being so close but I don't remember a time seeing so many plays that were on the "right side" that ended up losing. For example, Chubbs stepping out of bounds.

    Glad I found this thread. Keep up the awesome work PIMIKE and thanks for sharing your thoughts/picks. It is very much appreciated.

    It's all noise aveeno, mike, like a few of us, knows what he's doing, that's why he's overcoming the noise, even if it's just positive variance.

    You can not judge whether or not a play was the "right side" once the game has started. That input isn't relevant anymore. It's like when posters say the line was "sharp" after the final score is in because it pushed or had the margin exactly. That's not the purpose of the line.

    I hope that makes sense.

    The "right side" is winning, and nobody knows more about that than Mike. He is one of the best, if not the best on here. You've been here what??? 3 days now??? We all appreciate the input. BOL on future endeavors.

    Deciding the "right side" of a bet based on outcome is poor strategy.

    Mainly because it's the wrong way to approach probability based decision making with a comparison to offered odds, all of which has variance.

    That's the best I can put it.

    Here's an example.

    If two bettors bet a coin flip head to head, multipole times, and one puts up $1 while the other puts up $1.01 on each flip, the bettor who stands to win the $1.01 is on the right side, every time, assuming profit is the goal.

    No matter where an individual flip lands, the right side is the one that pays the extra penny in the 50-50 odds.

    He could put up his $1 against the other guy's $1.01 and lose 10 times in a row, he is still betting the right side, every time.

    Don't let variance, which is a calculable mathematical fact, change that.

    Monday Night Football

    Ok let’s try to start another 5 + weeks of profits.


    Tonight Monday night we have the Seahawks vs Eagles.

    Eagles have so much talent and had many injuries. However they are
    healthy now more than they have been. Problem is they cant seem to get out of their own way. Lol

    Now as for Seattle they don’t have a good defense plus they are traveling across country on the road. Seattle is clearly the better team.no question. However Philly remembers them beating them last year in the playoffs and this is a revenge factor here.

    Seriously, the book is giving me a td here tonight with a home team healthy?

    I’ll take that!

    EAGLES + 7 -133 BAS. Yes I bought 6.5 to 7

    Good luck whatever you decide.

    I will tell you, it looks like I might have one of my biggest plays coming this next week. We shall see, Covid -19 aka the China Virus could change everything, so I have to be careful and not post so early.

    So, I guess losing can be calculated?? Who would want to????
    Deciding the "right side" of a bet based on outcome
    is poor strategy.

    I wish I knew the outcome before wagering

    So losing is ok, based on your strategy. Good Lord.....

    Of course it's ok.

    It's unrealistic to think you will win every bet you make.

    I make 100's of +EV bets a year, I would not expect to win them all.

    That would be a ridiculous expectation and mathematically impossible.

    Read my example again, you have to account for price.

    The subject is the right and wrong side of the bet, not whether or not you win or lose the bet. Read my example again.

    I will admit, I posted my example because I read this wrong.

    I read this as you saying the right side is the winning side, like the poster before you.

    But that's not what you said, you said what I said, that Mike knows what he's doing.

    Regardless, my example with a coin flip paying + odds is every bit the explanation necessary for those who don't understand this very essence of sports betting.
