Ray Chadwick's Rating System
Like so many others in this biz, I like to keep it nice and simple.
I'm using the "dime" system.
A 100 Dime play will be a "max" wager and the basis point for whatever is the upper lever of YOUR personal bankroll allocation for a single bet or a single day.
For example, if you have $200 to bet on a single NFL Sunday and I have a 100 Dime release, then I'm telling you with that rating this is a max wager play because I have nothing stronger in my arsenal.
Using the same strategy detailed above, if I had a 50 Dime play, your wager would have been $100, or 50% of your single-day allocation for that NFL Sunday. If I had a 25 Dime release, it would have been $50.
It's all about scale and proportion.
Now will I occasionally "break" my own rating limits, coming with something bigger than a 100 Dime release? Down the road I probably will, IF I'm on a roll and IF I've built up a bankroll where we're playing from profit. And why not? After all, as General Manager Al DeMarco always likes to say, this is gambling and if you're not taking shots why gamble in the first place?
Who is Ray Chadwick?
I'm not one of these guys who spent years hanging out in smoke-filled, Vegas sportsbooks, talking about bad beats and big wins from the 90s with guys old enough to be my grandfather.
I'm your typical millennial who got hooked on sports betting by playing fantasy sports, something I got started doing when I was 13. Football, basketball, baseball, I was hooked. By the time I was 17 I was playing in multiple DFS and annual leagues.
You know as well as I do that to be successful in fantasy sports it's all about research; you can't be a casual player because the sharks eat the guppies. But it didn't take me long to realize that there are no "winners" in fantasy because the odds are stacked against you. And that ultimately led me away from fantasy leagues to sports betting where all my exhaustive, daily research gave me 50-50 betting odds on every game wagered on instead of some whack numbers in fantasy leagues where guys are running sophisticated computer programs and often playing hundreds of games thereby reducing my opportunities to win.
I don't touch fantasy sports now; it's a waste of time. I've been looking for a home to release my daily picks for the first time and I've found it here.
Made it look easy on Tuesday with my 50 Dime Double-Wager Winner on TCU in their 31-point win and cover over West Virginia.
Made it look twice as on Wednesday with my 100 Dime Quadruple-Wager Winner on the Jazz smoking the Clippers.
Another comfortable double-digit win and cover on Thursday with my 100 Dime Quadruple Wager Winner on the Hornets over the Kings.
Late night last night I did it again, 100 Dime Quadruple Wager Winner was the Blazers by double-digits over the Pelicans.
I have turned you a profit in 30 of the past 50 days.
Over those last 50 days, $10 bettors have pocketed $7,775.
I will win again today.
BIGGEST NBA RELEASE SINCE SITE DEBUT
Top-Rated 100 Dime Quadruple Wager NBA Winner # 14 of 20 - Interconference Living Lock is going out on this Dallas-Indiana meeting.
I am all over this game.
Jugular time in the NBA.
Things could get real ugly, real fast tonight in the Mile High City as the unrested Cleveland Cavaliers conclude their 6 game road trip with their 3rd game in 4 nights - and at altitude no less!
The Cavs were just on court last night at Utah in a game that saw them go down to defeat for the 14th time in their last 15 games played! Against the spread the numbers are not much better, as Cleveland is just 5-10 versus the spread.
As for the Nuggets, they shook off their home blowout loss to Golden State by laying waste to the lowly Chicago Bulls in their last game, 135-105 on Thursday night. Denver will have a couple of nights off after Cleveland leaves town, as Coach Malone's team will not play again until the 23rd in Utah.
Since the Cavaliers play little defense - allowing over 113 points per game for the year, and they don't have much offense - scoring just under 103 points per game, this game should snowball out of control the longer this game plays out.
Denver is 19-4 straight up at home this season, and 15-9 against the spread in those home games. The Nuggets have also been a good "bully", covering 4 of their 5 tries this season when laying double-digits. They also defeated the LeBron-less Cavs, 110-91 back in November at Quicken Loans Arena as the road chalk.
With last night's against the spread loss, the Cavaliers are now just 6-11 when getting +10 points or more for the year.
With Denver off until mid-week after this game, look for them to play for all 48 minutes tonight in a 20-points or more blasting.
