The Degenerate Club is new content for 2023.
Have you ever seen the movie “Karate Kid”? Mr. Miyagi teaches Daniel several core secrets to karate through some odd jobs around his property…”wax on/wax off”, “paint the fence”, etc. For the youngsters… CLICK HERE FOR THE VIDEO. While Daniel is doing these jobs he gets all pissed off because he came to Mr. Miyagi to learn karate, and Mr. Miyagi is just having Daniel do chores for him. When Daniel snaps, Mr. Miyagi shows him how these chores are really exercises in karate techniques. My goal with the Degenerate Club reports and wagers are to show you different tactics in betting…when to pass, when to play, leveraging wagers, patience, etc. I will do this, not through firing 1 unit wagers or 5 unit “Locks” left and right, but dedicating as little as 0.10 units per day to a wagering exercise. Just like learning karate, it will not happen overnight. Nothing worth doing is ever quick and easy. However, as we move forward through 2023 I think you will find the exercises invaluable to your wagering, and the Degenerate Club reports some of the most valuable content in TSP Live.
The Degenerate Club Reports are not replacing any content. The goal of the DC reports is to amplify TSP content and make it easier to follow and wager on. Providing my thoughts and insights on the wagers using both my experience and information obtained through the action/wagers at two global books.
One of the biggest complaints people have with the content is there is so much and they don’t know how to use it. The goal of the Degenerate Club reports will be to breakdown all the content and tie it together easily and efficiently.
One of the biggest requests I get is discussing my personal take on wagers and the information I am seeing using my experience. The “Degenerates Only” section shows some wagers I like and puts together parlays and rollovers to use those angles in highly leveraged wagers. I plan to use this section to illustrate strategies and wagering tactics.
One of the biggest things I would like is a central way to quantify all content. I track individual sharp bettors, I track analytics, Oddsmaker’s Report, etc., etc., etc. For the analytics junkies it is great…you have all these tools and toys to play with…plus records broken down by content. For the casual gambler, it can be overwhelming. I am trying to take away the overwhelming nature of TSP Live…while not removing any of the content and information that make it great. I believe the Degenerate Club Report makes it clear and straight forward as to what’s good, what’s not and what is worth keeping an eye on for the betting day and week ahead!
I launched the Degenerate Club report as a way to achieve the above goals plus…
+ Provide top level information through market breakdowns and information I gain through all the access and tools at my disposal. Degenerate Club reports will discuss information from the book’s group chat, public dogs, heavy public games, key Book Needs (wagers the book needs to win to achieve a high profit margin), known bettor activity, what I consider as the most interesting wager/action of the day, breaking down what’s on the analytics, discussing any Pro’s v Joe’s, in-play strategy for the day, interesting props and exotics along with a general commentary to tie it all together. It’s like the daily White House Intelligence Briefing for sports bettors!
+ Provide my view of the action and wagers using my experience doing this since the 90’s.
+ Provide very low risk daily action (0.30 units is pizza money and these rollovers are only 0.10 units…only one per day to start)…which is also a way to quantify and test the performance of different strategies.
+ Eventually, if the DC content works and people like it, my goal is to have all TSP content measured and tracked using one simple format…versus the various categories and content types that exist today. I am still working on this part as it is a large undertaking, but it would make your life and mine a lot easier. So, stay tuned for further updates!
I think the combination of TSP Live Insider to start the day off, the Degenerate Club reports to bring you up to speed on a macro look at the betting markets, combined with insider information from two global sportsbooks, delivered through late breaking Action Alerts and Oddsmaker’s Reports throughout the day…along with Hermes for the in-play angles will provide a well rounded arsenal within TSP Live to attack the markets each day…pregame and in-play!
I hope you enjoy this new content! I welcome your feedback and here’s to a great 2023! If everything with the Degenerate Club works out, which is always a big “if” when trying out new content, it will completely transform TSP content, potentially even connecting the public content as well. First things first though, we will start with the daily DC reports, wagers and content and then move out from there once it shows its worth.
ANALYTIC NOTICE: Analytics are provided to give you access to information that you otherwise would not be able to obtain publicly.
Analytics ARE NOT DESIGNED NOR INTENDED to tell you what to bet. Analytics are provided to make you a more informed bettor when handicapping and making your wagering decisions.
If you are placing a wager simply because the wager shows up within an analytic or alert, you are using the information incorrectly, outside its intended use, and opening yourself up to unnecessary risk.
While some analytics and information covers sharp action, it should be noted that sharp action can occur for many reasons beyond sharp money feeling a wager has value. Sharp bettors frequently wager for the purposes of middling, arbitrage, hedging, buyouts and more. Analytics do not discern why sharp money is betting, they just report that sharp money is betting. Just because something shows as “sharp” should not be construed as meaning the wager has value 100% of the time. A wager showing as sharp should also not be construed as a best bet, regardless of the reading within the analytic. The best sharp bettors have a win percentage of 54-56% (betting spreads), not the 60-100% that many touts and other unsavory sports gambling industry jerkoffs (technical term) may want to portray.
Good luck in your action!
