40 Dime
Winner # 8 of 12

Mismatch of the Month

This game has yet to start
Short card for Monday, yet I have the best mismatch on the entire card.

Ready for my 40 Dime Winner # 8 of 12?

I love one team tonight, and it'll win by at leas four runs.

Listen, we are just 10 Days away from football. The league's Hall of Fame Game is Aug. 5 - a little more than one week away. That means this is the last month we will be without football until March 2022. I am beyond ready folks, as my excitement is building.

This is going to be one of the best seasons ever, and if you haven't looked into a long-term package, now is the time to do so.

By starting today you would get my 40 Dime Winner # 8 of 12, and every play I release from now until the end of your package, including any football in between.

Let's shake off Sunday's loss on the Athletics, who couldn't complete the comeback against the surging Mariners, as I deliver the best rout on the card.

Gus Augustine's Rating System

My best bet is a 50K round-robin, quadruple, gazillion, bet your life's savings lock.

Are you f@%king kidding me?

This is really simple:

A 100-Dime play is my normal Max Wager.

That's the cream of the crop.

A 50-Dime play is worth 1/2 as much.

A 25-Dimer is worth 1/4 as much.

Now a rating system is only as good as your bankroll allocation, or money-management skills.

If you have a $100 to play today, and I have a 100 Dime play, then you should bet all $100 on it.

If I have a 50 Dimer, then you should wager just $50.

Let's take it a step further and talk about how you allocate your bankroll over the course of a week:

If you have $500 to wager for a week, then you divide by 7 days and that gives you around $70 (rounding down) as a daily max wager. So in this case, a 100 Dimer is worth $70 with a 50 Dimer being a $35 investment. 

What happens if I win?

You can either pocket the profit or add to the pot, increasing the wager size.

What happens if I lose?

Your max wager remains the same initial $70 because you did the math and spread your bankroll across those 7 days to start the betting week. 

Who Is Gus Augustine?

I would bet that I've been doing this longer than most of you have been gambling.

I turned 60 in 2020 and I've been a professional sports bettor and handicapper since I was 25-years-old.

How this business has changed over the years. Back in the day, I can remember turning on my TV Saturday and Sunday mornings and watching all these 800-number telephone touts pitching games with their endless "Absolutely Free" come-ons. Then it was the local 976-numbers, where guys were selling picks for as little as $3.00. That gave way to the 900-number craze where suddenly the same plays were being sold for up to $99 because phone companies were taking a cut of the pie. And then Al DeMarco, who I didn't know at the time, came along and created the online internet industry back in the late 1990's. 

I've made my money over the years as an investor and my cultivating a group of players that has grown through referrals and my reputation. Guys drop out, naturally, whether they're winning or losing because that's the nature of the beast. But I made a nice living over the years because I did this every single day; I wasn't one of these bums who took a vacation after the Super Bowl or took the summer off after March Madness was over. 

I love three things in life: my wife, any kind of pasta (much to the chagrin of my waistline) and making money. I tell anyone the first love I earned, the second I can buy and the third I've got to work my ass off for. But they're all worth it, and the payoff at end is what makes it all worthwhile.   

Today's Complimentary Play

OVER (4 1/2) Marcus Stroman Ks

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ 

I've now hit six of my last seven player props for you, dating back two weekends, and tonight I'm back on another pitcher and his strikeouts.
  • Sunday you got Pete Alonso over 1/2 HR, as I promised you he would go yard against the Blue Jays, and did.
  • Friday I went 2-0 in giving you Boston Red Sox starter Eduarado Rodriguez under 7 1/2 Ks, and New York Yankees starter Gerrit Cole over 7 1/2 Ks.
  • Tuesday it was Cardinals pitcher Johan Oviedo going over 4 1/2 strikeouts for another freebie.
  • St. Louis lefty Wade LeBlanc went over 2 1/2 Ks for the complimentary play two Sundays back.
  • And the runs started two Saturdays back, when I delivered Milwaukee's Brandon Woodruff going Over the 7 1/2 strikeouts.
Tonight I want you playing Mets starter Marcus Stroman over the 4 1/2 strikeouts against the Atlanta Braves.

This is an N.L. East showdown he will most certainly be up for, as he's 4-0 in five career starts against the Braves, along with a 1.80 ERA. In those outings, he has 24 strikeouts, an almost-average of 5.0 per game. But even deeper is those outings are over 25 innings, so he's averaging damn near one strikeout per inning lifetime against the Braves.

Earlier this year the Mets lost his only start against the Braves in 2021, but Stroman also left the game in the second with a sore left hip. That was the only time he had a no-decision.

That said, since he only pitched one inning against Atlanta this season, you might as well consider those averages looking more like 6.0 Ks per game and certainly 1.0 K per inning lifetime against the Braves.

Stroman has struck out five or more hitters in 11 of 20 starts this season, including nine of his last 15.

The Braves average 9.2 strikeouts per road game, and Stroman is averging 4 2/3 innings per home outing. That means he gets into the fifth, and we get our five Ks based on the aforementioned career numbers.

Play Stroman over 4 1/2 strikeouts in this early start.

3♦ OVER Stroman Ks
Based on 1♦ to 5♦
