Bit & Byte
A binary digit is called a bit. There are two possible states in a bit, usually expressed as 0 and 1. A series of eight bits strung together makes a byte, much as 12 makes a dozen. With 8 bits, or 8 binary digits, there exist 2^8=256 possible combinations.

Thank you University of Maryland!
And that is it. I must program in 256 possible combinations of random parlay sequences.
I chose ATS win loss. Because it was there, that's why.
From what I can tell, I am using the opening line. The result next day is the closing line.
To keep it nice and random, I wait for Statfox yesterday's results to input win loss records.
I reduced the the 256 to 8 for now. That is a lot of programming, the 256. Type "wwlwlwwlww" etc 256 times. Yeah. That's what I said. Not needed.
If I read it all correctly, my random plays need to hit 55% to be profitable as a parlay.
That is my goal. 55% ATS. Season long.
Here is where random really does take over.
Every play you see now, will have been above 60% or declined to a minimum of 60% ATS. When it rises again, above 60%, I play.
Is 60% the perfect number? No.
58% should be more accurate. I am testing.
For now, 60%.
And there you have it. The secret code!!!
Off to program...
