The Run Up (Ep 10)

Bingo-bango. We finally have a good Saturday going 3-0 and winning another 2 unit bet putting us over the even water mark for the season. It certainly seems like we are getting some momentum here, so another good day today and I might increase the unit size for next week trying to make a dent in the bankroll challenge. For now, we have a small Sunday before a Monday day off and then back to the grind on Tuesday. I considered betting Loyola -5.5 here today against Drake – they absolutely massacred Drake without Hemphill yesterday and are now 10th in the rankings. This would be a system Drake play though, so I I think I will let this play out from the sidelines. The only other bet I am playing today is here: Scores and Odds.

Starting bankroll – $1711

Bets –

Iowa -5, $107 to win $100, W
Oakland -2.5, $112 to win $100, W
Virginia -6, $220 to win $200, W

Overall Feb 10th: 3-0, +$400

Overall: – $2111

DISCLAIMER – My unit size may change based on current state of the bankroll challenge. It is recommended that bettors use 1-5% of their current bankroll for their unit size depending on expected ROI and experience betting. Right now I am at 5% per bet, but once we get going, I may yank it up to 10% as I am attempting to run this $2,000 up or lose it all before the end of the NCAA tournament. This is not recommended, unless you are fully prepared to lose your bankroll.
