There will likely be many NBA playoff systems shared soon, I think many members are most focused on NCAAB right now with the conference tourneys and postseason tourneys going on.

Anyone posting NBA Playoff systems?? I've only seen one in the Think Tank. Having trouble coming up with some logical ones myself... surprised there aren't more posted as playoffs are around the corner... would love to see some!!

We're currently only allowing 5 systems shared per user across all sports so we can monitor the quality of the systems in the Think Tank. We've noticed you've developed some influential systems and will consider opening up more shared systems for users like you.

Hi I deleted a few systems and I would like to add some that may be stronger to the think tank yet it says there is a limit of systems.What is the limit per person and how can I share some more.

Thanks

We agree that not all of the systems are useful that are in the Think Tank right now. We are working on ways to improve this process. We are going to change the default sort to the number of copies a system has. We feel this is a better indicator for how many people like or approve of a system. However, there are some systems with a high number of copies that aren't necessarily predictive. We also are working on the idea of a voting system where you can vote a system up or down.

Referring to the earlier argument about margin of victory (MOV), I have a couple of points. First off, I love the discussion. These are the exact kinds of interactions and topics we want to see discussed in the Think Tank. Secondly, I think MOV is a bigger factor when looking at spread systems rather than moneyline systems. In this instance, the system was based off moneyline dogs which means you are betting on the team expected to lose more than it wins. In this instance, I don't think the negative MOV would deter me from betting this system.

On the contrary, if I have a spread system that has won 55% of the time, but the MOV is negative, that would be a red flag that there may be some blind luck that helped achieve that win percentage. As always, there are additional factors to consider such as sample size and filters used, but I think MOV is a better tool to use in spread (and Over/Under) systems rather than moneylines.

First of all, I apologize if my english isn't good, I am not an english speaker.

I tend to agree with smartplays11, there are some shared systems in thinktank that are everything but useful. A system has to have a logic in my opinion. I don't think it's profitable in long term to bet, for example, on teams that have between 47% and 58% win/loss %, on Tuesday's games (don't if it works, it's an example). There's no logic in it, and even if it has been a winning in the past years, there's no guarantee it will work in the future because there is no logic in it. The best way to use betlabs, in my opinion, is to find some logical systems, based on facts, and add easy filter like home/visitor, favorite/dog, etc... I don't want a system to win 20units a year, I want logical systems that have a logic behind them, that win a bit less, but in which I have no doubt betting on.

For example, in NBA spread game : 1, 2 or 3 ats losses streak Against 1 ats win streak Visiting team Last game dog

Record 340-231, +92.70units, ROI 16.2%

Some systems in thinktank are good bases that just need one or two filters more to be efficient for me, with far less bets, but a better ROI.

But some are absolute non-sense in my opinion, because they are just built to find the best record and the best ROI without any logic behind.

I think the bookies know that they can't win in every game situation, and they are some situations where they have accepted to lose a bit pf money, because they can't cover all situations. I believe betlabs is the best tool to find this bookies accpeted losing situations.

Please delete useless systems maybe have a vote and ask do you find this system potentially useful.If there is an overwhelming no then it should be deleted out to avoid wasted space.

With a 10 year data base, very few if any systems will have thousands of games to reference. So why should Bet Labs even exist if you need thousands of games??

If you want to make this quantum physics, that is certainly your prerogative. I have used Bet Labs systems to show a significant profit, and see no reason that should change. If you would like to pan my systems and sample size, thats your right. It doesn't mean you're correct, given the results I've seen using them.

And no, my comments haven't been "significantly" edited.

Amazing you pan my systems, when the think tank is littered with systems that aren't relevant. About 95% of them.

This is my last post. I'll give you the last word. My systems work, the past proves it, my bankroll proves it, and no amount of quantum physics or any other method you want to use - MOV which doesn't prove anything despite your pronouncements otherwise - proves differently.

Enjoy the think tank, littered with useless systems. I was trying to help, but obviously it isn't needed. Why don't you post some successful systems, and show people how to do it the right way. Apparently you have the answers. Please show us all how its done.

For all your criticisms, you haven't offered up 1 system.

You're entitled to your opinion.

If these systems lose this year, it will be the first time in 9 years that collectively they will lose. As for measuring the past, if a system has shown a history of losing, thats a good thing??

Can you give an example of a good system??
