You made Money for FREE on Sunday courtesy of my Charity Play of the Week program and Scott Delaney's easy winner on the Angels in a rout of the A's.

Scott's play cost $69 - You got it for FREE

Now it's your turn to help someone in need with the money you won on my dime as General Manager of this site. 

I came across a story regarding a family four four that just lost its patriarch.

Brian Thomas was 45-years-old when he passed away unexpectedly.

He left behind a wife and four children.

Click on this link, though, and you'll see what drew my attention:

You see that black t-shirt proclaiming "4 reasons I love being a DAD".

You see those four children he left behind.

Enough said.

I realize many of you play offshore and don't have access to your funds ASAP, but that's okay, just give when you can as this link and info will be here on my page for at least a week.


Since starting the Charity Play of the Week program in March of 2012, I have given away over $5-million (yes, MILLION) worth of selections at this site. And the response has been overwhelming because you have helped so many strangers in times of trouble with a helping hand financially. 

The word "gambling" has many negative connotations, but I always believed there was some greater good that could be accomplished while enjoying what we do for recreation. And the accompanying positive karma is something we can always use in all aspects of our lives. 


As always, this is an honor-based giveaway. When you donate I will have no idea who are, what you gave, when you gave it, etc. However, I gave you Scott Delaney's winner, a $69 pick, for FREE and now it's your turn to make a donation.

For those that donate, my appreciation as always. For those that don't, how can you look in the mirror each day? Just remember, karma and irony go hand in hand.

Al DeMarco,
General Manager

Now nine profitable days the past dozen after scoring with a 10 dimer on the Cardinals in a rally win versus the Pirates on Monday. That was my second straight 10 dimer that you got for just $19 thanks to a promotion at this site that saved you $60 off the regular price.

The first $19 play I'm referring to was Sunday's winner on Baylor, that boosted my football record (college and pro combined) to 6-2 over the past couple of weeks, including a 3-1 start in college this week as I also cashed with Auburn on Saturday and U.L. Monroe last Thursday.

Yet another 10 dimer going today as I'm backing a team coming off a Monday loss to rebound with an easy win.

Al DeMarco's Rating System

Over the 25 years I've been doing this, one of the biggest misconceptions I've encountered from customers is their belief that winningpercentageactually matters in this business. Bottom line is that a straight-up winning percentage means absolutely nothing when your handicapper - such as myself - releases rated selections. Read further and you'll understand why.


I use the "dime" rating system, going in 5 dime increments, generally keeping those plays between 5 and 50 dimes. Yes, that's a wide range, but truth be told, I usually max out around 30 dimes, rarely venturing into the rarefied air toward 50 dimes unless I've built a substantial bankroll. Doing anything different would be irresponsible bankroll management on my part and a total disservice toward you, my clients.


I like to keep it simple from a money-management system so my customers can always know exactly how they should beallocatingtheir bankroll in proportion to the rating I assign to a selection.


Obviously, a 50 Dime play is five times stronger than a 10 Dime release and twice as strong as a 25 Dime pick.


And each day when you see my compiling or mentioning my NET profit figures, keep in mind I've computing them based on the following formula:


Net Profit = Wins - Losses- Vig


Of course let's not forget my golden rule of gambling: Never bet more than you can afford to lose. No rating system - including mine - is effective unless you pay attention to that rule. By heeding my advice you can never fall into a financial abyss from which there is no escape.


A question gamblers always pose is "How much should I be playing?" Obviously, there is no set, firm answer, but my advice would be to follow my money management system and base the size of your wagers on a percentage of your total bankroll.


Let me explain further...


Take your total bankroll - the amount you can afford to lose in an absolute worst case scenario on a single day. Let's say it's $400 on a college football Saturday. And on that Saturday I release a 50 Dime play and two 20 Dime picks.


Let's do some quick math...I've got atotalof 90 dimes of action on the table (one 50 dime play and two 20 dimers).  You've got amaximum one-day bankrollof $400. Simply divide the $400 by the 90 dimes and you've got a per dime wager of $4.44.


Now it's time for some simple multiplication. If a dime is worth $4.44, my 50 Dime rated release equals approximately a $222 wager on your part. And my two 20 Dime rates picks equal approximately $88.88 wagers each. Add everything back up and you've got your initial $400 bankroll all over again.


This obviously all applies to a single wagering day. It's up to you to figure out how to allocate your bankroll over the course of a week or month.


Now, back to how inconsequential winning percentages can be: Let's say I have a 50 Dime play and three 10 Dime releases on an NFL Sunday. If I win the 50 Dime play and go 0-3 with the 10 Dime releases, my overall record is a dismal 1-3 but my net profit is a healthy 17 dimes. Conversely, let's say I lose the 50 Dime play and go 3-0 with the 10 Dime releases. My overall record is an impressive 3-1, but my net profit is a negative -25 dimes.


Which would you prefer, the losing record and winning day, or the winning record or losing day?


Believe what you want, but I'm telling you the truth: Winning percentage means nothing in this business as the above illustration will prove time and time again. Of course, crafty salesmen masquerading as handicappers can spin gold using the second scenario, but I feel it's my job to educate you about what is the TRUTH in this business - whether you become my customer or not.
