technically speaking u can probably put it in this type of context.
at a time when I was addicted to horseracing my win percentage was 28% which was based on daily win-loss record keeping over a long enough period of time. I pretty much had a fairly solid 28% win average. for simplicity, call it 28 wins and 72 losses out of every 100 plays.
during a losing streak I had 20 straight loosing wagers. to simplify, when it was all added up at the end of the day my win-loss record stood at 28 wins and 92 losses or 23.33% wins from every 100 plays. my expectation was that over the next week or two I would have enough good days to balance my present win percent of 23.33% back up to 28% win average, that is back up to the normal win expectancy. and to my surprise and not to my surprise it happened the next day. my selections went 9-3. didn't hit a winner under $15. at the end of the next day my win-loss record stood at 37-95 and was back up to 28.03%
