The Biff Group Sports Handicapping Service
Biff's Pick of the Day (POTD*)
The famous poker pro and NBA gambler/analytics guru, Haralabos “Bob” Voulgaris, earned his rep betting totals for regular season NBA games. It was believed that he had identified certain coaches (he’s only intimated how he achieved his edge) that were more likely to have teams play Under the Total in certain spots. The thinking is that these were more prideful coaches, less end of game fouling, better defensively, etc. Multiple traits for his set, probably defined by these teams' coaching staffs. And when two of his coaches met up—he’d hammer down on those matchups.
It’s probably true that he made a fortune on something that only he was identifying. The books thought he had a complex #sportsbetting algorithm. And maybe he did, maybe he didn’t. "It's proprietary," was the extent of his comments, when asked about his edge. Complex algorithm, or just eyeballs & talent, or some combo of the two, to some degree—doesn't matter how. The point is—he did it. He beat the books.
Same for us. 304 W's from 500 POTD* spots. Experienced players understand what 304 W's represents, from a data set that large. Winning years. All plays. Biff since 1/1/13. Did it. Still do it. And this is how it's done. Biffsalgorithm.com #sportsbetting.
Winning betting campaigns—it's always eyeballs + math. Always. But not just any 'ole eyeballs. You need real, bonafide, natural—talent. And experience. Then it's art & data science. That's the foundation of successful #sportsbetting. And it's more art than science. Way more. The straight data geeks don't get that. Neither do the subjective matchup info & expected outcome side dork bettors and novice handicappers.
We have over 70 original TBG Play Type distinctions. The POTD* (Biff’s Algorithm Pick of the Day) usually meets the most criteria—a combination of subjective and objective elements that we’re looking for in a side. It’s our call which play we DBL our recommendation for and elevate to POTD* status. We do not use a computer to spit out POTD* picks, obviously. But we rank our plays, certainly. And the POTD* is, by definition—number 1 on the list of sides that fit our profile. All touch and feel and based on certain things that we combine using our eyeballs and the data. The wager recommendation for POTD* picks is almost always double a player's typical wager amount.
We hit our +10/100K benchmark in back-to-back-to-back years ($10K all plays for folks with just a $100 typical wager amount, $100K for our dime bettors). We also compiled a 60.80% win rate for our POTD pick of the day—over a 500 pick data set (304 W’s).
