AP shares a few random thoughts about the NBA
I'm going to make a painful admission. Since I started sportsbetting seriously, my record on bets placed in the NBA is 102-107-2. Yes, you read that correctly. I am running at .483 Against The Spread. It's definately not something I'm proud of, but it's the truth. OK, so why am I doing so badly?

Well, first of all, I'm up $2300 on NBA spread bets over this period (nearly three seasons now) so I wouldn't say I'm doing particularly badly. This is because I make big bets when I spot a good line and my base bet has been growing as I become more competant at handicapping (and my winning percentage has improved as well). But anyway, my record at picking games is slightly worse than tossing a coin (except that a coin isn't going to get exactly 50% of the games right either, except in the very long run).

Why is this?
