Mike "Moneymaker" Lundin's experience as a professional poker player has proven to be an immeasurable asset in sports handicapping. He's a numbers guy, with a keen eye for spotting trends and stats that just don't jive with the odds offered by the bookmakers. All Mike's plays come with write ups backing up his selection, giving you a glimpse into his process of breaking down games.
Mike rates his plays between 2-5* ( bet with 2-5% of your bankroll) with the 5* bets being the MAX BETS.
2% = Free picks and low-confidence / high-variance plays
3% = Regular plays - most plays will be given a 3* rating
4% = Top Plays = Play of the Day and other top play releases
5% = Best Bets = Game of the Week, Month, and Game of the Year releases
Just as in cash game poker, the goal is not to win that giant pot once in a while, but to build your bankroll slowly and steadily by identifying +EV situations to exploit.
As a former online poker pro, Mike knows the value of creating systems and winning formulas through statistical analysis and math to use as a baseline, but much like poker, sports are played by human beings with emotions and feelings.
Identifying letdown spots, bounce-back spots and situational betting in general plays a big part in Mike's success in picking winners, but he's also not a stranger to locking in a bet based on stats and trends alone.
