There are plenty of websites devoted to helping you track your finances, but what if you don't have any finances, because your money's tied up in degenerate gambling debts? Well now there's a site to help with that, too: Track The Bet.
Offering a comprehensive breakdown of your sports betting habits, Track's a new web program that lets you document any pro/college game wagers, then summarizes those picks/bets via tables and graphs to help you determine which moves are earning you the most bank, and which are leaving you destitute enough to rob one. Offering daily schedules for everything from MLB to NCAA basketball, simply fill out the amount of $, line, etc, and check back when games are over to view calculated performance reports broken down into categories including Wager Type (stats on how you fared in straight wagers vs teasers vs parlays), Bet Line (a pie chart comparing bets on the money line, spread, and over/under), and Category, which isolates your return on favorites vs underdogs, though the point at which you're gambling on cartoons you may want to think about getting help quitting. For more stats on how to best risk your coin, Track has summary reports on the outcomes of past bets made by all of its users (organized by league/conference), with metrics revealing everything from winning percentage to net profit; there're also Team Reports that assess the performance of individual teams by the overall record of others' money line and spread bets, because who better to crowd-source info from than a group of people who're desperate to win back all the money they've lost?
Should gambling not have liberated you of all your stacks yet, you can opt for Track's Premium subscription, which gets you unlimited monthly bet tracking (free version limits you to 20 per), saved reports from the past 10 years, and the choice to receive daily performance alerts, which sadly won't be much use until you get your laptop out of hock.
