Here is the 1st installment of Gambling 101.  Again, these kind of numbers I am about to throw can be used in a multitude of different things.

Some people I have taught wheeling to have used them for charity events, office pools, or just pure fun if in Vegas or Canada.

I want to say that ‘gambling’ is always based on the house beating you.  Like Robert DeNiro says is Casino “There is a reason they build these huge extravagant building in Las Vegas, the house always wins”

Wheeling 2 games:  When there are 2 games, there are only 4 possible outcomes that can occur.

Game 1: Home Team, Game 2: Home Team

Game 1: Home Team, Game 2: Visitor Team

Game 1: Visitor Team, Game 2: Visitor Team

Game 1: Visitor Team, Game 2: Home Team

For abbreviation’s sake lets just use “V” for Visitor from now on – and ‘H” for Home.

In these 4 scenarios for games, you can have a contest for 4 people.

The records for said players will break down as follows:

1 person will go 2 – 0 in the 2 games.

2 people will go 1 – 1 in the 2 games.

1 person will go 0 – 2 in the 2 games.

3 Games Wheeled.

Game #1 Example: NYY @ TOR

Game #2 Example: DET @ CLE

Game #3 Example: MIA @ PHI

H= Home, V= Visitors.

There are 8 total outcomes for this wager.

HHH: TOR, CLE, PHI

HVV: TOR, DET, MIA

HVH:  TOR, DET, PHI

VVV: NYY, DET, MIA

VVH: NYY, DET, PHI

About chuckbooth3023

I played competitive baseball until 18 years old and had offers to play NCAA Division 1 University Baseball at Liberty University. Post-concussion symptoms from previous football and baseball head injuries forced me to retire by age 19. After two nearly made World Record Attempts in 2008, I set a New World Record by visiting all 30 MLB Parks (from 1st to last pitch) in only 24 Calendar Days in the summer 0f 2009. In April of 2012, I established yet another new GWR by visiting all 30 Parks in only 23 Calendar Days! You can see the full schedule at the page of the www.mlbreports.com/gwr-tracker
