I'm going to attempt for the first time to make a living off sports betting. I know I have the ability based on my years of experience and my stats history (not my stats on covers). I am a US player looking to bet on-line and I will only have an initial bankroll of $2500-$3000. I plan on placing initial bets around 2%-7% ($20-$70 units) and then chasing my losses (Chasing bets). I'm looking for a little advice from successful professional full time handicapper (which I'll be lucky to find on any covers forum). My goal is to clear $250 a week in the beginning. Here are so questions I have:
What is the best online sportsbook that still is taking bets from US players?
With only a $2500-$3000 on a chasing bets system should I split my bankroll up over several sportsbooks to find the best lines or just stick with one good book?
I'm planning on making at weekly cashouts; which sportsbook would be the most cost effective for weekly withdrawls?
Would anyone advice moving to Las Vegas in order to place bets in Casino's and avoid the hassles of financial transactions via offshore sportsbooks?
BTW: I'm not looking for a lecture on chasing bets. Thanks
Has anyone else heard the sales pitch on the new Iraq dinar? It's simple. Buy Iraq's new money ($700 USD = 1,000,000 dinar) in hopes that the new Iraq goverment can pull together and start to prosper off it's rich oil resoures . It sounds good at first but I'm not sure if the economy will pick up there in the next 20 yrs or not?
I not working today so I will be handicapping most of the day.
I bet 1 unit on all plays which so far I only have placed one bet.
Need to run out of the house for an hour or so but I'll be back with more picks later today.
Off work again today... I've been running great the last two days I've been off work and had the time to research all my picks.
6-2 yesterday 75% 9-2 the day before (81.82%) and 3-1 the day before that for 75%. I'll post my picks for today ASAP after looking over the games
Daily Pick record for 02/17/2010
West Virginia -7.5
Oklahoma St. -2
Sure bet is Eastern Illinois ML
Can't lose with this pick!
-200 is not a great value however if it doesn't win then you chase the bet later!
