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??

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.

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.

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'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.

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.
