Betting projection = my estimated winning percentage/lines/spreads. I look at the games, where my odds are much different than bookmakers odds.
CLV = closing line value. According to Pinnacle and other top sportsbooks in the world this is the most important indicator if you are a long term winner or not. Pinnacle: “The most accurate way we have found, to distinguish winning and losing players is to look at the odds a player received when they made their bet, and compare it with the Pinnacle Sports closing line on the game. If a player consistently beats our closing price, they are likely to be a long-term winner – period. Interestingly, we have found that this test is more reflective of a player’s future winning potential, than their historical win/loss record with the company.”

Spread bet / lean – Qualified bet based on my criteria. Looking at games with enough big difference between my numbers and bookmakers number. Currently I am looking at 5 pts difference. In the past I had 7 pts diff (1 TD). If there is not at least 5 pts diff this is not qualified bet. Lean = the difference between my numbers and bookmakers numbers, where the team with positive difference is shown.
