Key Metrics

Win%

Our predicted % of the time you win this bet based off of our projections, book lines, historical results, mean/median distributions and simulations.

EV

Expected value – also known as ROI. This is the weighted average of returns. For example 60% chance of winning a +100 bet has an EV of 20% (.6 * 1 + .4*-1).

sBet%

This is our refined version of Kelly Criterion optimal bet percentage that is designed to maximize your bankroll in the long term. For example, if you had a 20% ROI bet, betting 100% of your bankroll would cause you to inevitably go broke, but betting 1% might not be maximizing your long term growth. We do the math to help you determine the correct % of your bankroll to bet.

sEV

This metric measures the % your bankroll is expected to grow if you were to place this bet. We factor in how much of your bankroll you should invest (sBet%) as well as negative geometric drag to calculate this. This is the default sort because at the end of the day, as a bettor you are trying to maximize the growth of your bankroll and this captures that.

What is the difference between EV and sEV?

The key difference is that EV measures the growth of a single bet, whereas sEV measures ROI in terms of the growth of your entire bankroll

Why use sEV?

Would you rather place a bet where you have a 100% chance to win and an EV of 20% or a bet with a 1% chance to win and the same EV of 20%?  Clearly the first option is better because you can safely invest every last penny of your net worth and you would be able to fully realize that 20% EV whereas with the 1% win bet you could only invest some amount < 100% of your bankroll.

Lets begin with a few assumptions:

 

  • – You have a 0 EV bet where you have a 50% chance of doubling up and 50% chance of losing your bet.
  • – You are betting 10% of your bankroll on this bet.
  • – Now we can say that the two possible outcomes, each with a 50% chance of occurring, are that you end up with 110% of your bankroll or 90% of your bankroll.

 

If you were win to this bet once and lose once you would end up with 110%*90% = 99% of your bankroll for a net loss of 1%! The general way to calculate bet returns this way is winReturn^(win%)*lossReturn^(loss%). This is the essence of the concept of negative geometric drag also known as volatility tax in the finance world which we’ve factored into our sEV calculation.

Be sure to check if there are any key questionable plyers on a player’s team before placing a bet. Our current projections are assuming questionable players are IN until they get ruled out. For example, if the tool is saying that Jaylen Brown under points is a good bet, but Tatum is questionable then avoid taking the bet unless you are confident Tatum will play.

 

We are currently working on fixing a bias towards the over in the underlying algorithms. For the time being  this means is that you should focus primarily on unders and only take overs that really stand out. This will be fixed in an upcoming update.

Why Use Expected Value (EV)?

The measure of what a bettor can anticipate to win or lose each wager made on the same odds repeatedly is called expected value (EV) in the betting world. A positive expected value (+EV) suggests a future profit, whereas a negative value (-EV) suggests a future loss. Every wager should be made with the intention of finding betting value.

F.A.Q.

What Are NBA Player Props?

NBA player props are fun way to wager on an NBA game without necessarily wagering on the final result of the game. NBA Player Props are becoming more and more popular since they allow you to take advantage of a players’ advantageous position to hit over or under lines on numbers like points, assists, rebounds, or a combination of those. We at Stokastic favor these over game lines bets, knowing the market is more inefficient and favorable to bet on.
