Background: I was born and raised in Southern California. I started gambling at age 7 when I would talk football with my neighbor lady and she liked the opposite team as me I would bet her 50 cents of my $2.00 allowance for mowing her yard on my team. I would always get a good line because I would look in the newspaper for the spreads and add a couple points to my side of the bet. I understood spreads because my Grandpa taught me. He owned a successful construction business but he loved to gamble. He would go to Vegas and gamble so much that he was flown out on a private jet by Mr. Hilton to his ranch in Reno to gamble and hunt. My grandpa introduced me to spreads and I would pick a couple games a week for him. Unlike my friends at school I would consider the spread in whether a team won or lost.
Betting History: I started really gambling as a sophomore in college. I really learned some lessons early: Not to have a favorite team, chase your bets, ect. The biggest lesson I learned was not to over extend yourself and there's no such thing as a must win. I learned that when I bet on the Red Sox with Curt Schilling pitching against the lowly Royals. The Red Sox needed to win to keep pace with the Yankees for the playoff hunt. They lost the first 2 games of the series and this was a must win. The Sox were -320 and I was chasing so I put my life savings, risking $9,600 to win $3,000. They were up 2-1 into the 8th inning and Curt gave up a home run leading to Red Sox loss 4-2 and me losing all I had. I ant stand defeat. Since then I've spent years researching sports betting. I've read countless books, including Michael Kent's Computer Group. I've also tried my own theories which have lead me to my most successful strategy.
Current: I have developed a system that I have been using over the past 1-1/2 years with great success. My sample size is large enough to lead me to believe this is more then just a lucky streak. I have used the services of my friend -A high level computer programmer at Qualcomm to develop a program that identifies the side of a contest in which Vegas would lose the most money. After identifying those games we bet on the side of Vegas. Logic being that's how the books make the majority of their money... Instead of the long held idea that they make their money by getting 50% on each side and collecting the juice....
I heard about pregame a couple of years ago but was still developing my system and hope to showcase my winning picks here. I hope you join me!!!
