2018 Season Results
The power of the compounding bankroll ( which changes the amount of the bet ) combined with hitting the RIGHT dogs at the right times results in the reality that I don’t have to win every game to win overall.
How to pick the dogs is the secret to my success and I just incorporated a very small but important tweak for 2019 that I back-tested for 2018 and it would have made a considerable difference.
623-436 on Model Favorites +208% bankroll growth (59%)
161-226 on Model UnderDogs +191% bankroll growth (42%)
One thing that should you take note of is that a lot of handicappers tout incredible growth of “units”. What is a unit can be, and oftentimes is, very subjective.
In fact, I can’t even properly define a unit in my own system. What I can absolutely define is the growth of my bankroll based on wins and losses.
The bankroll growth show above is from my 2018 season.
I compound my bankroll DAILY so a 1 unit bet on day 1 of the season is likely NOT the same amount as on day 5 or day 50 or day 100.
BUT, what can be definitely said about the entirety of my system is that it grows a bankroll.
