There are two historically profitable betting algorithms developed by the Action Network that report returns on investment of 10% and 7% that apply for tonight’s game at Yankee Stadium.
Let’s start with the 10% ROI system.
If you had bet $100 on each game that has fit that betting trend since 2005, you’d be up about $14,000. That’s roughly $800 per year.
And this is over a massive sample size: 1,400+ games over the last 17 odd seasons.
The betting system incorporates public tracking data also proprietary to the Action Network. The philosophy behind the algorithm is simple: fade retail bettors on unpopular teams.
The 7% ROI system has similar principles. That system targets the total on games between good teams.
One side of that total — given certain parameters — has won 55% of the time since 2005, going 1379-1143-18 since the Bush administration. That’s a total profit of almost $19,000, or about $1,150 per season.
We don’t recommend using this betting algorithm as an alternative to investing — variance is a much sturdier constraint in sports gambling compared to the financial markets — but similar principles apply in regards to gains over a long time horizon and sample size.
