    Sports and the luck factor etc

    Tv and people on forum..talk about how much the performance of a player varies and his effort is the thing that matters. There is a lot of factors that play into outcomes, with a good amount of it based on randomness and opponents etc. Take nhl player..one game 3 goals..next zero...I think the difference in.performance can be none or tiny..factors like luck and opponents health play into the result more and more.

    So random as far as a point spread thatís why you canít just guess you donít even have to look at stats or just look at odds

    Biggest factor most gamblers don't pay attention to is motivation. If a player or team is not motivated to win then you are most likely to lose your bet regardless of the number you got. Players don't care about the odds you bet them at.
