Odds To Win The 2016 MLB World Series

Yoenis Cespedes led all LF for HRs with 35 on the campaign in 2015. He picked a contract year for his best season to date out of the 4 years he has been in the Major Leagues. Cespedes hit 17 HRs with the Mets in 2 months, after smacking out just 18 in the first four months with Detroit. Cespedes finished in the top 40 for both leagues in respective big fly's, and was tied for 13th overall with Manny Machado and David Ortiz.  New York brought him back for at least another year, where he helped the Mets go 34 - 23 down the stretch.  Expect more of the same in 2016.  Mets are the best bet of the week for the 'Fall Classic' value wise.

A couple of things have happened over the last week.  The Mets signed Yoenis Cespedes and no odd was changed after this.  Very strange indeed.

With adding the Cuban slugger, the Mets have almost assured their fanbase for another post season berth in 2016.  This club is more like it was in the last 2 months than it was in the 1st four months.

Even if the Nationals were to have an unbelievable year – the Mets should still make the postseason as the #1 Wild Card seed.

I have the Mets as a 96 win team after this move, with the Nats listed about 93 victories.  Had the Nats picked up Cespedes, I would have given Washington a 95 – 92 win advantage over New York. Read the rest of this entry

Last time we talked about wheeling 2, 3 and 4 contests of anything respectively.

For 2 games, there are 4 possible outcomes, for 3 games there are 8 possible outcomes – and for four games there are 16 possible outcomes.

Today, I tackle 5 games, 6 games, 7 games and 8 games.  These totals carry possible outcomes of 32, 64, 128 and 256 variances.

Realistically, you can use any of these to accommodate fundraiser options.

Yes all of us love the 1 – 9, up and down the board for a Superbowl pick (or grey cup up in Canada.  For these, there are only 81 possible outcomes.

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” Read the rest of this entry

I come from a family steeped in betting in sports.  I grew up with a Grandfather that loved the horse races.  Of course it was a natural for me with love of math involved.  Kind of like numbers that baseball also provides.

While I understand it is against the law to gamble on sports in most states in the USA (except for Vegas), what I am about to divulge can be used for a lot of different things people do

Whether it is Sudoku, or just placing a certain amount of risk at your next visit to the track, these may help you, as they have been invaluable to me as a odds expert.

I will debunk this type of thinking.  Martingale system Not good..as it leaves no outs.
