Jerry Bo: Bookie Busters mid-week plays
I always stress the importance of bankroll management and remind you thats it's a long process to become profitable in sports betting. The figure of 52.4% is one you'll hear referenced when discussing gambling. That's the winning percentage needed to break even when betting lines that are -110 (11/10).
The other day I ran across some numbers that put a perspective on how tough it truly is to win long term. Not only winning, but claiming to be a full-time sports bettor is something less than 3% of gamblers can pull off.
50 game Sample Size betting -110 and winning 54% (27/50)
A $110 to win $100 bettor profits $170
A $550 to win $500 bettor profits $850
A $1100 to win $1000 bettor profits $1700
As you can see the small sample size shows you the meager amount of profit you make over the 50 game sample. If you can sustain this winning rate over time, you’ll see your bankroll increase. But time is critical, so always remember there are more games and spots to get in on. Winning won't be accomplished overnight.
After a layoff in Bookie Buster plays, we return with a few bets to get the bankroll fatter in time for football season.
