About enchilada monroe



REASON #1 - Read my blog postings

Do that and you'll want me as your Tipster ONLY IF I can beat the bookie's 11/10.

Scroll over each tip and left-click (when you see the little "hand" icon) for the odds posted and SOMETIMES EVEN an analysis of why I selected that tip for you to bet into... First of all, I selecteed it for YOU since I myself bet into it.



REASON #2 -- Curiosity

Am I a capable Tipster?

Can I figuratively "keep my head above water" no matter how turbulent since I am always betting into the POOREST ODDS or occasionally, the POORER END of reprsentative odds.

I want to pick winners...first & foremeost... but I do NOT WANT you visiting my page with my photograph EXPECTING TO BE disappointed in not being able to find ODDS AS FAVORABLE when you place your wagers AS WHAT I have my tips graded at.

So I remove that ELEMENT from the equation; I have my tips graded at the POOREST ODDS of the 17 online betting shoppes tracked here offering wagers in the Major North American Sports with the most liquidity (highest betting limits) and historically have always BEEN THE TOUGHEST sports to beat the bookie at; to wit,

NFL North American Football

NHL Ice Hockey

MLB Baseball

NBA Basketball

...very, very few NCAA College Sports wagers... very few



I am an adult male from Ohio, USA .

My ROI and my results graph may not look that impressive but I am beating the bookie's 11/10 and I am the only one here or at any other Handicapping Portal that is having their tips graded at THE POOREST ODDS out there or in the alternative, the POORER END of representative odds.

My tips TAKE ON THE CHALLENGE of having them graded at the POOREST ODDS any bookie or online betting shoppe can throw at me.

The BIGGEST FRUSTRATION and cause for UNCERTAINTY for all of you is PURCHASING A TIP with your hard-earned Euros, Pounds Sterling, Francs, Guilders or Deutchmarks and going to ALL OF THE online betting shoppes to be UNABLE to find the odds that you just paid for.

"Do I still have this Tipster's edge if I bet into these poorer odds?"

You're BEING DEFRAUDED for crying out loud.!!!!


The CHIEF COMPLAINT of all these Handicapper Portals is the Tipsters "CHERRY PICKING" the most favorable odds to have their tips graded at (usually from shady/dodgy books that do not draw enough betting action to necessitate the bookie making line adjustments in the first place)

One Handicapping Portal actually FORCES THEIR TIPSTERS to take the BEST ODDS.


Folks, listen to me... there ARE ONLY ABOUT ten online betting shoppes where you should be placing your action anyway.

Of those ten online betting shoppes there are only a few offering reduced-juice odds.



REDUCED JUICE online betting shoppes

Pinnacle is the best if your country is not banned from placing bets (no accounts from the UK or USA allowed)

SBObet is the 5th best if your country is not banned from placing bets (no accounts from the UK or USA allowed)


5 Dimes.. this is my favorite

Heritage... this is also my favorite





FULL-JUICE online betting shoppes

Bookmaker (USA accounts ) / CRIS (worldwide accounts) Family.. ..(I also have an account here but I do not bet into it much)

The Greek (Olympic Sports Group)

William Hill



Bovada (USA accounts) / BODOG (worldwide accounts)... they do payoff quickly like my other favorites BUT THEY post their lines awfully late IMHO and the odds they post are not very bettor- /punter-friendly IMHO... I have an account here BUT HONESTLY I rarely bet into it since I'm always seeming to find better odds elsewhere





Since this is a British site/portal I will cite my tips/wagers at bothe North American Moneyline Odds as well

 as Euuropean Decimal Odds (and occasionally, I will also cite Fractional Odds)


I will have the Tipstrr staff grade my tips/wagers at the poorest end of representative odds... this ensures that 

I can beat all of the online books no matter how poor of a number the bookie is handing out

 either "ATS Pointspread" or "O/U Totals Wagers"


A 10- unit bet represents 2% of one's overall bankroll (0,2% unit)... 

2% represents a 3.5 %  Kelly wager since I believe I have an overall edge or "positive expectation" of 5.5%


Kelly is the optimal way to wager but one trades for extra "profitability" at the expense of "volatility"

2% saves one the stomach upset associated with Kelly and limits the stomach upset when I go on my extended losing streaks.


Yet, so far I have always managed to sustain NEW all-time highs.

That is the "name of the game" in any type of investment vehicle (diamonds, stocks, bonds, precious metals, commodities)... one's investment broker must always hit a NEW all-time high

This is the investment equivalent of pop singer, Janet Jackson's song, "What Have You Done For Me Lately?"


The PREVIOUS all-time HIGH which ONCE WAS the ceiling to crash through NOW BECOMES the basement


Go to the RESULTS TAB here at Tipstrr and look at my PRODUCTIVITY GRAPH and know that YOUR PRODUCTIVITY GRAPH will ALWAYS LOOK BETTER than my productivity Graph PRECISELY BECAUSE you will ALWAYS (or "almost always") be betting into MORE FAVORABLE ODDS.


What is often overlooked by almost everyone about Kelly (except for "me") is that UNDERBETTING one's Kelly edge is EVERY BIT AS PROFITABLE as "overbetting" one's Kelly edge.


Since one gains "bankroll safety considerations" by UNDERBETTING then... .....only the "undisciplined bettor" would “overbet” (usually to chase losses)


Bet 2%, I’ll make you money and you can get a good night’s sleep over there in the UK and then...

....see the results when you awaken in the morning.

One does not want to sweat their wagers by betting money that one cannot afford to lose.”


Bon chance, mes amis

UPDATED 2/6/2107 --- new all-time high in profitability achieved OVERALL

enchilada monroe - New All-time high in "profitability" achieved at Tipstrr


Hello followers,

We're still 45.8 Euros below our all-time high in NHL Ice Hockey but have recovered (so far) some of those losses.

Coupled with the exceptionally strong showing in NBA Basketball, a new all-time high has been achived in the overall record.

Any new NBA high is a record since it started off LOSER from my very first picks.

If you want to bet into my NBA picks (against my admonition), I do not recommend a 2% wager; try 1% instead or EVEN BETTER try 0.5%


The job of any investment broker (diamonds, stocks, bonds, commodities) is to continuously hit new all-time highs. There can be both  "positive" and "negative" swings but the broker must always hit a new all-time high.



OVERALL (NHL Ice Hockey, American Football, Basketball, Soccer)

  • ROI: 3.78%
  • Profit: 156.0 Euros
  • Picks: 423
  • Win: 60%
  • Average Odds: 1.79

156.0 Euros achieved on 2/5/2016  is the new all-time high and has now become the new all-time basement.

152.24 Euros was the previous all-time high achieved the week of November 10, 2016 


NBA Basketball

  • ROI: 5.39%
  • Profit: 46.9 Euros
  • Picks: 87
  • Win: 68%
  • Average Odds: 1.62

46.9 Euros on 2/4/2016 is our new all-time high and has now become the new all-time basement.


NHL Ice Hockey

  • ROI: 7.51%
  • Profit: 162.1 Euros
  • Picks: 216
  • Win: 57%
  • Average Odds: 1.91

207.9 Euros is our new basement and the new all-time high (achieved on January 14, 2017) which MUST be exceeded. We are 45.8 Euros short of that number


January 14, 2017 was  two (2) betting days and two(2) calendar days since the previous all-time high of 194.7 Euros achieved on January 12th

...which itself was two (2) betting days and two(2) calendar days since our previous all-time high of 184. 3 Euros achieved on January 10th

... which too was three (3) betting days and three (3) calendar days since the all-time  175.5 Euros achieved on January 7th

...which exceeded the basement of the all-time high of 160.6 Euros more than a month ago



  • ROI: 1.17%
  • Profit: 2.1 Euros
  • Picks: 27
  • Win: 74%
  • Average Odds: 1.34

The all-time high is 22.1 Euros


North American Football

  • ROI: -5.93%
  • Profit: -55.1 Euros
  • Picks: 93
  • Win: 56%
  • Average Odds: 1.81

-8.9 Euros is the previous all-time high


There you have it... the good... the bad ,,, and the ugly

All tips chosen/graded at the POOREST ODDS so your PRODUCTIVITY GRAPH would have to always look BETTER than MY PRODUCTIVITY GRAPH since you yourselves would be betting into MORE FAVORABLE ODDS.

1. UPDATED (Jan 15, 2017) Analysis of All-time NHL Ice Hockey results 2. UPDATED (Jan 15, 2017) New Tracking of NHL Ice Hockey Results since December 17, 2016

1. Analysis of All-time NHL Ice Hockey results

Our 4 win - 1 loss NHL Ice Hockey tips yesterday when added to the 2 win -3 loss NHL Ice Hockey tips of January 13th, 2017 have resulted in a new  all-time high  EXCEEDING THE PREVIOUS HIGH of 184.3 Euros  we now have a new all-time high of .207.9 Euros

This new all-time high ALSO BECOMES a new all-time basement; the job of any broker(diamonds. stocks, bonds, commodities) is to continuously achieve a new all-time high.

I have admonished you all not to bet into my Americal Football nor Basketball tips UNTIL AFTER 300 TIPS HAVE BEEN GRADED and the dust has settled somewhat  and only bet into my NHL Ice Hockey tips 

enchilada monroe's NHL Ice Hockey tips results

  • ROI: 12.68%
  • Profit: 207.9 Euros
  • Picks: 164
  • Win: 59%
  • Average Odds: 1.96

Since all investment markets are cyclical and brokers have ups-and-downs we'll track the number of days it takes me to achieve a new all-time high.

Let's also be honest; this may be my last all-time high and I could tank from here on out.

Simple interest on a bank passbook savings account is the only guaranteed steady growth yet we know that does not even match inflation;



207.9 Euros is our new basement and the new all-time high (achieved on January 14, 2017) which MUST be exceeded.


It has been two (2) betting days and two(2) calendar days since our previous all-time high of 194.7 Euros achieved on January 12th

...which itself was two (2) betting days and two(2) calendar days since our previous all-time high of 184. 3 Euros achieved on January 10th

... which too was three (3) betting days and three (3) calendar days since the all-time  175.5 Euros achieved on January 7th

...which exceeded the basement of the all-time high of 160.6 Euros more than a month ago


SO LIKE ANY INVESTMENT BROKER (diamonds, stocks, bonds, commodities) I can have both POSITIVE as well as NEGATIVE SWINGS our job is always to achieve a new all-time high.

More than a month of losing tips to get back above 160.6 Euros to the 175.5 Euro level.

What distinguishes THE SWINGS between your tipster and your stock broker is that YOU YOURSELF are executing the trades each day; it's the world's worst form of psychological torture YET YOU WOULD EXPERIENCE THE VERY SAME TORTURE if you were executing your own stock trades each day based on tips from your stock broker.



I've handed out 164 NHL Ice Hockey tips since October 20th (less than 3 months)

If you have been wagering 2% on each play as I recommend you cycle through 100% of your bankroll in the space of executing 50 tips.

YOU ALL KNOW, I pick the POOREST ODDS to have my tips graded at so the 12.68% return on investment (ROI) in my Tipstrr results page for NHL Ice Hockey is legitimate.

You've accumulated  3.28 years (164 tips/ 50) worth of  12.68 % per annum interest each year in less than 3 months.

You fans of Star Trek NOW realize that your bankroll has been in a "time warp"


3% per wager??.... (164 tips/33.33) = 4.92 years of 12.68% interest in less than 3 months

4% is the DEFAULT WAGER at another site where I have begun offering these tips for free which would equate to 6.56 years worth of interest at 12.68% per annum in less than 3 months.

We work 45 years till retirement... if 4% is not overbetting per the Kelly Criterion then in 7 NHL seasons you have achieved your retirement goals and any broker would tell you 12.68%  each year would be what you Britons call "smashing."




This the leads into the discussion of ....

OPTIMUM BETTING/WAGERING per the Kelly Criterion

"hindsight is 20/20"

"monday morning quarterbacking"

you can Google search the meaning of those terms used commonly in the United States.


You need to hit 54.26% winners at the bookie's 11/10 to justify a 4% wager each bet.

Since these are what statisticians call INDEPENDENT EVENTS then there is no need for concern about bets being placed simultaneously.


There is a NEED for psychological concern... if I go 0 wins - 4 losses in one day then 1/7th of your bankroll is wiped out.

Many stock brokers use the Kelly Criterion; it is very volatile (even for risk takers like them) and so they maximum out at 50% Kelly.


Since I've been tracking the moneyline performance for US-based bettors I've hit at a 11/10-converted rate of 

42.93 winners versus 28.07 losers over the last 71 wagers which would "monday morning quarterback" to a Kelly wager of 17.01% per wager. with my chi-squared Z-score falling to 1.66 standard deviations away from the mean of 0.00

Right there alarm bells/klaxons should start blaring in your head that my current win rate is unsustainable.

But there's a whole lot of difference between 2% and 17.01%

...and if you have to drop down to 1% to stickwith me through the down cycles then do so.

My PRODUCTIVITY GRAPH shows that I pulled out of the nosedive of a few weeks in only a few days; if you were not following me THE ENTIRE TIME through both "bad" and "good" then you missed out.


The varying Inspectors General for the US Department of Labor issued 20 staright warnings for 20 straight years (beginning in 1989) that 70% of the nation's pension funds had NEVER BEEN audited.

Trillions have been stolen; "auditing" is "ground zero" for fulfilling one's fiduciary duty.


You need to get out of "paper currency" and into "hard currency" like 1/10th South African Krugerrands or British Sovereigns (where a WHOLE DIFFERENT bunch of scam artists are trying to sell you over-priced precious metals) and research honest brokers in those fields.


This "time warp" for your bankroll can help.

Regardless, it's time to sit down with the missus sometime soon after supper one evening and revise the discussion of one's retirement strategy.

It's one hell of a world when one cannot trust the politicians to protect your retirement funds and you have to resort to sports betting.


I'll post a separate blog entry for you and the missus too read together some evening soon.

I'm also trying to ascertain why what should be winning Basketball and American Football bets are underperforming; if we can get the ship righted then my followers stand a good chance of having enough paper currency to worry about trading it in for precious metals.








2. New Tracking of NHL Ice Hockey Results since December 17, 2016

This newer tracking method is to address what I would imagine would be the presumptive concerns of US-based players and Britons no longer allowed to bet into Pinnacle nor SBObet and are left alone with 188bet as the sole provider of the -0.5 goal Asian Handicap Inc OT alternative puck line.

I strongly recommend a MANUAL MANUFACTURING  an IMPERFECT yet CLOSE approximation as I describe in the comments section I include with each tip (click on the MATCH and it will open up a new screen with my analysis) .


THE QUESTION FOR PLAYERS IN THE USA as well as Britons unable to bet into Pinnacle nor SBObet lines

What would the moneyline betting of these prohibitive favorites look like.

It certainly expands the offerings out there of available books


I only recommend 5 DimesHeritage & the Bookmaker(USA) / CRIS(worldwide) family to you all if you have no access to Pinnacle; I won't go into the reasons here.

5 Dimes and Heritage are reduced-juice up to $500 wagers. Bookmaker/CRIS is full-juice.

Eventually, you hope to be forced EITHER to be banned and placed inside a safe FULL-JUICE book OR IN THE ALTERNATIVE,...

.....pack up your belongings, tearfully kiss your family, friends & other loved ones goodbye forever and emigrate to a country that Pinnacle at 1.96 decimal/-104 moneyline will accept your action.



THE TRACKING since December 17. 2106

The lines used were 5 Dimes reduced juice (1.95 European Decimal Odds.... -105 North American Moneyline Odds... 21 /20 Fractional Odds).

I have converted the moneyline percentages at reduced juice into the standard 11/10 percentages at full juice.

1. My handicapping technique has generated 71 plays/tips in only 29 days (let's hope I can get profitable in American Football and Basketball and baseball... at 2+ picks per day all year round we'd kill any other investment vehicle).

2. We have 51  winners and 20 losers (71.83%) at the prohibitive moneyline favorite average odds of  1.58 European Decimal Odds/ -170 North American Moneyline Odds

3. Converting to standard Asian Handicap/ATS Pointspread at FULL JUICE (11/10 fractional ... 1.91 decimal... -110 moneyline) results in a winning percentage of:

42.93 wins and 28.07 losses (60.46%) at FULL JUICE

60.46 % winners at  full-juice 1.91 decimal odds/-110 moneyline odds

So you can bet the reduced-juice moneyline wagers at many online betting shoppes and still be assured of not suffering; it allows you to risk slightly more but I recommend betting 2% per play till we have 300 wagers graded.

60.46% winners at full-juice 1.91 decimal odds/-110 moneyline odds..

....at 2+ picks/tips per day which are being given out for free


"Good" or "just lucky"?

The Unfair Coin Test

With only 71 wagering events it's not really meaningful at this point but we are 1.66 Standard Deviations away from the mean of 0.00 which would mean how likely is it that we are betting into an UNFAIR COIN that is weighted in our favor at the bookie's 11/10...



..are we really using a FAIR COIN and just getting lucky?


We'd like to get around 2.50 Standard Deviations away from the mean of 0.00 after around 300 picks

..but we're on the right track at present.

Typical Game Analysis provided for Ice Hockey Tips

Pinnacle at 1.47 European decimal odds

bet365 at 1.44 decimal odds


We'll have Tipstrr grade this tip at William Hill's 1.40  European Decimal odds/-250 North American Moneyline Odds so that my followers never have to experience neither the "uncertainty" nor "frustration" of wagering/betting their hard-earned Euros into poorer lines than what this tip is graded at.


No CHERRY PICKINNG of the most favorable odds (which are the chief complaint of subscribers to these handicappers portals... all of them)> I'll always have my tips graded at EITHER the POOREST ODDS out there or the POORER END of representative odds.


I'm still slumping in winning % in North American Football and Basketball but I am within 8.1 Euros/Pounds Sterling/U.S Dollars of my all-time high in NHL Ice Hockey.


I make no apologies; I handicap each event the same way and this produces a subset of bettable games to wager into.


I have admonished you all only to bet into my Ice Hockey selctions and let the dust settle over 250 - 300 tips in Basketball and North American Football ( I am profitable in Soccer... I know a lot of you Britons  hate the word "Soccer" but I use it to distinguish it from American Football)


I am however grateful to be within striking distance of my all-time high in NHL Ice Hockey.


The name of the game in any type of investment (diamonds, commodities, stocks, bonds, etc) is for your broker to consistently beat hs PREVIOUS all-time high.


It is the investment equivalent of "what have you done for me lately?"


Let's see if tonight's pick can get us 1/2 of the 8.1 Euro deficit back.


Good luck.

Ice Hockey Wagering Philosophy

Description of how to create/manufacture an IMPERFECT APPROXIMATION of the -0.5 goal Asian Handicap alternative puck line is contained in a blog posting.


The 3 European betting shoppes (Pinnacle, 188bet, SBObet)which offer TRUE -0.5 goal Asian Handicap alternative puck lines do not accept US-based player accounts.


I'll always have my tips graded at the POORER END of these 3 available lines so that you can be assured of being able to go online and find odds that you can actually bet into AS OPPOSED TO finding poorer odds than what these tips get graded at.


The late Huey Mahl pointed out that in parimutuel horse race wagering that "place" bets/wagers on every FAVORITE would return $0.96 on every $1.00 wagered and that the TASK of the capable handicapper was to "cull out" false favorites.


This is what I attempt to replicate here in Ice Hockey; to wit, not placing bets on favorites that do not meet certain specific criteria.


I'm doing OK on Ice Hockey but not so well in other sports.
