To those with high credits...

I know some of you have been given lots of creds. God knows mow many millions have been thrown my way only for me to piss them away on some ridiculous underdogs.

But, some of you have legitimately earned a LOT of credits, right? Without any freebies?

If so, and assuming vbookies odds pretty accurately reflect real world betting lines, surely mirroring your bets with real bets would have earned you a shit load of cash by now, no?

Am I wrong? What if somebody with 20 million legit credits followed exactly their same betting pattern for real?

I dont get it? Why are you not all millionaires?!


Of course, I could be wrong and we all get by on freebies from the mods. In which case, discard my thread and carry on.

I had a lot more back in football season..... If I had 30 million dollars I wouldn't be worried about betting on sports to win a lot of money it would be just for fun.

I bet some real money and my trend seem to be the same some times I win big sometimes I lose BIG. I don't have the kind of credits I once had but I am certain I will be up to 100 mill again eventually (I didn't start at 0 and a lot of mine are from sig contests). I don't think anyone has a million credits who didn't get any of them from some kind of contest on the forum at some point or a donation from somebody or something.

Yep, it's always different when it comes to betting with real dollars. There's a member on here who's got serious ballz; 2kn1 is his name. My biggest bet was $350, this guy bets thousands consistently.

Awhile ago one of the mods posted up an article on betting stastics by this ex Google IT guy. I actually emailed em to thank em. Brilliant kid. Based on strictly math in the long run he would have been up six figures, but one would need to have sufficient bankroll to cover the losses. The way he treated it was like stocks almost.

As for most of us our bets are based on knowledge on the fighters + some stats and unfortunately at times based on preference. IE: I knew GSP just didn't seem right against Serra, but I would have felt like a traitor betting against em so I didn't. Then you got Crocop whom I always rooted for to my chagrin at times.

These days I'm hovering around the 50% - 60% mark only. I have a buddy who has limited knowledge in MMA, but loves to gamble in everything. So he simply bets on all underdogs which is an interesting strategy.

In the end maybe placing small bets on underdogs or parlays are the best way to go UNLESS you truly feel it. The member I mentioned earlier had like a grand riding on Hendricks vs Fitch. Impressive win.

And people usually follow some sort of bankroll management (obviously can't blame them, it's the smart thing to do when it comes to real money) and no one does those balls to the wall bets, where you bet 50%< of your bankroll on one bet, in real life, what a lot of betters do here on vBookie.
