There are two games on Wednesday’s college basketball slate that fit an against-the-spread (ATS) betting algorithm with a 57% win rate since 2005.
Since then, if you had wagered on the roughly 50 college basketball games per year that have fit the algorithm, you’d be up over $7,000.
That’s about $440 per year — good for a solid 57% win rate over a long sample size. For reference, a success rate of 52.4% is enough to turn a profit.
The system has a historical 11% return on investment (ROI). Of course, anything above 0% is an ROI win. Any ROI above 8% beats the stock market’s average annual return.
Bitcoin, for instance, is up about 10% over the past calendar year.
The two games this algorithm is targeting tonight are Wisconsin vs. Illinois and Purdue vs. Minnesota.
