Nice Forum! Here’s my first post:
I am an old veteran gambler who has made more mistakes than days a lot of you have been alive! I don’t know this SDQL, but it sounds like it is a database which is something I have always kept and used; so I like the whole idea of this forum already. Using historical data is the mark of a disciplined gambler: using history to back up your decisions.
I’m going to share one of my more valuable systems I’ve used since the early 2000’s and hopefully someone can backtest it for me with sdql.
For years, I’ve looked at a simple logical angle; for whatever reason I’ve had large success with this in the AL rather than the NL. The public tends to go in a little too hard for betting for or against offenses looking at the most dumbed down stat: runs per game, but that is what I use anyways here. This is a more square betting system and that’s why I’m comfortable sharing it. By no means my best one.
Hitting well over 55% and up roughly 20-25% since the early 2000’s I look to bet against a home team scoring under 4.5 runs per game on the season. The spot I pick to do it is when they just came off of a blowout loss of 8 or more runs.
I have absolutely know idea how to use SDQL, but Tom told me that it is fine to post this here because there is an application of something I found in “any database.” Let’s see what you guys have got.
