As bettors we tend to overcomplicate things, I think. Theres merit in keeping it as straightforward as possible. That said, I took a very simple strategy and tried to ascertain what could happen if we were to bet on each underdog of every championship. I looked at close to 1200 games and I did not bet on games were the chances were where there wasn’t a underdog with favorable chances. From 15 Women’s tournaments if you bet 10 dollars on each underdog you would be up 1288 following those tournaments. Out of roughly 35 men’s tournaments you’d be up 3730. I need to go back over the results that are mens because I wrote a lot of these on notecards and there are a few chicken scratch. So some amounts are off but I often consider at max its a -10% margin. In any case, the piece of research I did concluded that gambling on all underdogs in every tournament could yield %. While most bettors arent satisfied with this kind of yield I would be content with a guaranteed way to make money. This system isn’t ideal and sick should go over again and analyze more tourneys then put all the men’s games in a spreadsheet like I did to the women but I believe strict adherence to my view will yield positive results in the long term. What are your guys thoughts? Anyone have any experience with this or similar strategies? Additionally, for what its worth I tracked 4 weeks of Nfl out of 2014 and you would also be positive if you moved with the most underdog strat. 4 months doesn’t mean anything but I think its worth studying. Thank you for looking.
Edit: okay I calculated 30 tourneys. I took the results in 2012 and 2013 and chose 15 different tourneys. Should you bet during 2012 on every underdog in those tourneys you would wind up 1125. If you wager 10 on each underdog in 2013 you would be up 995.3 throughout this interval.
