Line Grinders Daily: Losing Streaks Suck!!

Line Grinders Daily: Losing Streaks Suck!!

Line Grinders Daily was dark on Monday. Sunday wasn’t a terrific day as we missed both of our underdog plays. but at least we hit the Nadal -2.5 setter to offset what turned out to be a losing day.

Betting underdogs and short favorites ain’t for the faint of heart and it’s a good thing we’re practicing sound bankroll management principles otherwise this small losing streak could hurt.

Sportsbook owners like DraftKings Jason Robbins may think sports betting is just entertainment but I don’t find losing very entertaining at all.

While popping into the “lab” and spitting out 100-unit winning “whale plays” seems to be the norm on social media, it hardly resembles the realities of sports betting and the experience most of us mere mortals can relate to.

Some things to consider while in the midst of a losing streak;

Have a Short Memory

While it’s okay to examine a loss, yesterday is over and there’s nothing you can do about it. Today is a new day and the slate in front of you requires all of your focus. Learn what you need to learn and move on.

Stay Patient

Discipline matters in sports betting and losing streaks will test you right down to the core. This is not the time to alter your money management system nor is it the time to make more wagers in order to catch up. 

Focus on the Big Picture

Successful sports bettors don’t play the short-game and are usually focused on their long-term goals rather than short-term setbacks. Your mileage may vary but my goal is always to finish a particular season on the plus side and that’s where I place my focus. 

Take a Break

Even the greatest athletes in the world take a break and the everyday grind of handicapping and getting down can take quite a toll. Nothing wrong at all with hitting the pause button and it’s something that I do on the regular.

Tuesday MLB

Thanks to some shitty weather yesterday we have sixteen games on tap Tuesday.  

Los Angeles Dodgers vs Chicago White Sox

The Dodgers fly into Chicago on a two-game losing streak meanwhile Chicago is riding a two-game winning streak. Righty Mitch White takes the hill for Los Angeles and he’s not been very effective thus far for the Dodgers. He’s coming off a bad home outing vs Pittsburgh but did strike out seven Pirates. White Sox righty fireballer Michael Kopech suffered a horrible road matchup loss against Toronto but had allowed six earned runs over his previous 42 innings pitched. Look for Chicago to steal one tonight against the slumping Dodgers. Take Chicago White Sox F5 +110 tonight!

 

Tuesday NHL

New York Rangers vs Tampa Bay Lightning

Tampa Bay won game three of their series with New York and is a -168 favorite to win tonight. The goaltending has been spectacular for New York but Rangers netminder Igor Shesterkin saw 52 shots on goal Sunday and he came up huge time after time. Look for that peppering to continue tonight and look for Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy to come up huge tonight. I’m going to “fan” this one out and keep my fingers crossed for a Rangers win tonight.
