The Run Up (Ep 32) - Sweet 16

We started off the Sweet 16 with a brutal 0-2 record and neither game was particularly close to covering our bets. Then, the next 4 games all went our way fairly easily and we ended up with a profit. The positive thing is that we got CLV on 5 of the 6 bets, and the one that we did not get CLV on was one that I said it was likely to move the other way – I was expecting it to move against us. All of the Sweet 16 bets were quite profitable in my opinion and I was happy with how they turned out.

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.
