Win – Win

Been raining on and off for 30 hours.  Clouds get blown away around noon.  Mid-80;s  till Friday with a good chance of rain both Wednesday and Thursday.

My theory of betting is 3-fold:

Bet a little on a team I think will win.

Bet a little against a team I think will lose.

and . . .

Bet a lot on a game when I think one team will win and the other will lose.  Mind you my definition of a little is a couple of bucks, and a lot is $10.

But last night the star aligned.  St. Louis against the Cubs.  Wainwright throwing for St. Louis.  John Lester opened after his off season move to Chicago.  Lester is good . . . but it’s still the Cubs.  Their shortstop is questionable in the field and their right fielder is basically an unproven rookie; lots of power, but . . .

Both those deficiencies came into play last night as the Cars blanked the Cubs 3-0.

I actually put serious money on this game; 30 whole dollars..

It was a nice win for me.

I’m now at a new high dollar mark.  It’s enough to make some futures baseball bet that Alex is predicting ie.,  Rookie of the Year, NL Champs, World Series Champs, etc.

My run with the NCAA is over.  After being in the top 10,000, I’ve dropped to just over 2 millionth.  And it’s not going to get any better.  I didn’t pick either of the Final teams.
