    just like my 401k..... losing money.

  3. #38

    How on earth is your 401 losing money? The DOW is now back up to just over 1000pts off its all time high and has risen 17% in 6 months. If your 401 is losing money you are either mismanaging it or you have it all sitting in cash.

    well experiment not going great,in reality quite bad, have to look at why lines move sometimes(I did not yesterday). SA line moved because Parker and Duncan out and Calgary did not have a chance, streak at 14 for the bad, plays overall 3-19 -2385.03. Just an fyi, not using real money, but might be using betpoints.

    so until break streak, all plays will be 100

    play 23, 100 to win 670, basel +450 and marseille pk -250
    play 24, 100 to win 482.42, oklahoma city -450, notr dame -145, george mason -155 and ottawa -140

    How much you're betting isn't the issue compared to the fact that you're betting parlay's. That's where you'll go bankrupt and quickly. You can't do 4+ team parlays and expect to win constantly ....

  9. #44

    Like EVERYONE else in this thread I'll say stop betting parlays!!! Pick a few games a day on the board and bet them. Parlays are much to volatile and bad "investments". Like investing in stocks, learn from your mistakes. If you don't correct them you'll be broke before you know it.

    I cant wait till he turns it around and banks! hypothetically speaking.

    In reality though, since this experiment is to see if sports betting can be compared to finance investments, you REALLY need a plan. Blindly throwing money away on high cost square bet parlays is gonna make you broke, quick...but we can already see that through this post.

    The only real way, I feel, to compare handicapping with wall street is through discipline. You would need a strategy/system, from what you bet, why you bet, how much you bet, and than if your system is good enough it can gain positive interest over the long term. Otherwise your blindly gambling...and if you keep doing parlays you'll be broke in no time. Whether you win or lose, you cant compare blind gambling to investing.
