So for me, I try to take away lessons learned each week. On Tuesday morning, I go back and take a look.
For instance, I went 7-2 during the 1 pm and 4 pm games Week 1 in NFL. I didn’t research the Cowboys-Rams SNF game that night so had no inkling. I told myself “made a killing, I like the cowboys, let’s bet it!” Obviously they lost.
Noted that down as a lesson learned. Not to make stupid bets just because you want to give yourself something to watch or since “I had a good day I can risk it!”
Then Week 2 my lesson learned was betting on Saints MNF. All the experts, all the smart money was on Raiders. Even the line movement on the day of was going on Raiders edge. In that scenario, the smart money and my gut instinct were on opposite sides. Should have been a no play for me.
It’s made me make smarter bets. Especially last year I was a parlay whore and teaser slut. I’ve stopped those dramatically and if I do either, I play a very small amount.
