Units, Dollars, Stars, gold plays, platinum plays, double-wager living locks, blah, blah, blah.
Who the F&%K cares about all that crap?
I just want to get you my plays in an easily understood system. So, here it goes:
The plays are rated from 10 dimes to 100 dimes.
A 50 dime play is twice as strong as a 25 dime play.
Your wager for a 50 dime play should be twice as much as a 25 dime play.
Pretty damn simple, right?
The rating scale is simply a unit of measure (i.e. worth) so you know how strong a play is to ME when I release it compared to others either previous or in the future.
How much you play is up to you. That's where bankroll allocation comes into the equation.
Let's say today it's an NFL Sunday and you have $100 to spend. That's it; not a penny more. And that $100 is the most you would bet on a game. Period. Now, if I have a 50 dime play, you're just betting $50 - not $100 - because my play isn't a max wager so your bet shouldn't be either.
Say I win on Sunday and Monday night your bankroll is now sitting at $150 and I come strong with a 100 dime max wager. Do you take all $150 and bet it? F&%K NO. Your max wager is $100. That's what you're playing because should I lose after the vig you're still walking away with $40 over the two days.
Will your max wager change eventually? It could. But only if I build your bankroll. You bet more when that bankroll grows; you bet less when it shrinks. It's all about money-management. And I will "manage" it if you follow my rating system.
Who is Tony Weston?
I am a gambler, just like you.
But unlike you, I'm a handicapper, too.
That means my job is doing the research on teams, personnel and situations all designed to produces a profit over the long haul.
It's not a 9-to-5 job. Never has been. It's 7 days a week, 365 days a year, but no complaints from me because I love it. Been doing it since I was 23-years old and wouldn't do anything else.
It's more than just getting online and studying. Being here in Vegas you've got to keep your ear to the ground, talk to other gamblers and get tips along the way. You need to be able to spot bad lines and bad situations and be ready to pounce on those obvious linemakers' errors. Trust me, oddsmakers make mistakes daily, some big, some small, and they're waiting to be exploited and that's what I do best.
Do I win all the time? Hell no. And anyone who says they do is a F&%King liar. This is a business about turning a profit over the long haul and that's what I'm best at, making money over the course of the month, the season, the year.
Today's Complimentary Baseball Play
Major League Baseball
Detroit (+330) at HOUSTON
Three straight winning nights with three premium selections:
- Thursday - 100 Dimer on the Giants over the Diamondbacks, 7-0
- Friday - 75 Dimer on the Giants (-2') over the Bears, 32-13
- Saturday - 75 Dimer on the Browns (+3) over the Colts, 20-17
And then I hit a wall on Sunday, losing my 100 Dimer in baseball, as the Blue Jays forgot to show up and got shut out by Seattle.
Eh, it happens. And yet in four days I've made $10 Bettors nearly 2 Grand.
Forget about football tonight, as the best play on the entire card is on the baseball diamond with a blowout winner.
Let's keep August going with momentum, as we hit this easy baseball game.
WINNING DAY # 22 of 36
Mismatch of the Month
4-Run Blowout Winner
15-5 roll with 25 Dimers and tonight's play is 3X Stronger
JUST AS STRONG as Saturday's 75-Dime Preseason Dog of the Week
the Browns (+3) 20-17 over Indianapolis, which you got for only $22
JUST AS STRONG as Friday's 75-Dime Preseason Game of the Week
the Giants (-2') 32-13 over Chicago, which you got for only $22
Yes, I'm playing the biggest underdog on the entire card, because sometimes it's okay to do so. I like the Detroit Tigers over the Houston Astros, strictly because of the price.
And you can go ahead and list Edwin Jackson and Wade Miley.
Look, are the Tigers better than Houston? No.
But the fact is the Astros and Miley should not be near $4 favorites. And when you have a value price - regardless of the teams - you consider the number and invest.
Keep in mind Jackson is 2-0 since rejoining the Tigers on Aug. 9, and he is 2-2 with a 4.09 ERA in 10 career games (nine starts) against the Astros.
Miley has been outstanding, I'll give it to him. But did you know in five career starts against the Tigers, he has a 6.48 ERA? It's the third-highest ERA of all opponents.
Yeah. A $4 favorite. Sure.
Give me the underdog.
2♦ TIGERS (Jackson over Miley)
