    Obviously you didn't mean half a penny so you made a 15 pick parlay betting 50 cents and won over 8k and then had a day where you lost 24k in bets?

    That's a wide range of control.

    Did any of it involve a drug taking or drinking?

    Do you take any drugs for Parkinsons (that's personal and you don't have to answer)?

    Legit questions here, I am curious.

    The real reason you probably shouldn't bet is that it's a complete time suck.

    Man, it can be so easy to waste a lot of time, too.

    Sometimes the time pays off, sometimes not so much.

    But either way, there is a cost of time.

    "Since it costs a lot to win
    and even more to lose
    you and me bound to spend some time
    wondering what to choose."

    Don't get me wrong there have been some very valuable things that I've learned that I can use in my daily life/professional life. I was not a math guy in my education but poker and sports betting sharpened those skills.

    In general though, if I would have spent the time I took learning how to bet and put it towards building a business, I'd be way better off. I could also say the same about drinking and smoking weed though.

    Yeah but time does get sucked up.

    I generally do a lot of work for a season during the season of the previous sport. Like buttoning up NCAAF and NCAAB during baseball.

    Then you can make bets all week, and not spend time while games happen.

    But I've been actively trading each weekend so I'm putting in 16 and 17 hour days even after I've done all that other work.

    It definitely helps to work smarter as well as harder and to use computers to your advantage, but time is definitely one of the costs of sportsbetting at that level and it is one of those costs that you don't get back directly, but do (hopefully) get paid in what you've learned, win or lose.

    Time does equal experience, but no matter how you spin it, the cost of time must be paid with time.

    You are the Shakespeare of sportsbetting.

    It's funny because the same post can have some posters saying there are a lot of words and they can't see any meaning, they say it says nothing or say it's vague.

    While other posters pick up what's put down and thank me for posting it. They will argue it's not vague but very specific when I can be.

    I get those same responses for the same sets of words. I'd like to say those not getting it are just trolling, because they don't want to read, but the truth is the frame of mind of the sportsbettor can be so different between advantage players and action junkies.

    So I understand the differences.

    It's never going to be the same every year. Might be more useful to ask for a 5-year average, or something like that. I might tell you myself privately, I guess you're not a nark lol.

    Wrong.

    Don't need a huge hold if you churn with volume.

    5% ROI doesn't sound sexy right? Well, it does if you can get $10 mil volume per year, right?
