    Mr. Rightside, I know some major players in this game that have a losing flat bet record per $2.00 on many days that they play but still end up on the profitable side at the end of the day because of the way that they wager, so what your harping on here does not mean that much to me, because it is money management that counts. I've even had losing days in the flat bet area on many days but still end up with profits, so it's not reallly the true story all the time. Just my $.02 worth.

    you're exactly right, but playing favorites all day (which are at best a 33% proposition) is, simply put, absurd.

    True, but if you can win 60- 70% or so on those chalk plays then you will make money period. Let's see what he can do as he has a way of figureing it out for those type of plays that he has tracked. Hell, if anybody can win at a 60%-70% clip and be consistant at that number I don't care what type of play it is I'll play it all day long.

    first of all, there is no guarantee that hitting 60% of your bets if you're only betting favorites will yield a flat bet profit. but think about it for a second, even assuming, aruguendo, that it was possible for US to hit at that ridiculous rate (i'd bet everything i have that it is not, by the way), you are risking a ton of money for at best a marginal return- even if there are no odds on favorites in the series (which US plays with regularity), you are barely scraping by at 60%. foolish.

    But think about this Mazel, if you can just eak out $200-$300 per day of profits doing this who cares that if it's a marginal return, that's a great income in my book. The whole keys is, is that you have to be consistant day in and day out doing it. I think players in this game get to caught up in ROI, that means nothing to me, what mean something to me is did I have a profit at the end of the day. I don't care what my ROI is or how much I bet or what my win % is as long as I'm in the black day in or day out, I don't care how I get there.

    My problem with this way of betting is:

    A) you are risking way to much money for a few dollars or 100's in return

    B) He has proven day in and day out that he can not Win with this method

    C) And S-Runner are you a Friend,Brother?

    stretch runner- you are assuming the conclusion first- that someone can actually make a profit every day. that, of course, is extremely difficult. so, let's make sure we understand just how difficult the premise in your argument- if people could grind out profits day in and day out betting exclusively favorites, you'd have smart people quitting their day jobs all over the world. i'm not sure how much one has to bet to grind 200-300 per day i profits (it is a lot more impressive if you're a $2 bettor instead of a $10k bettor), but if you're betting significant amounts of money to make 200-300 then you are quite vulnerable to a bad streak that would bankrupt even the heartiest bankroll.

    to say you don't care about ROI in this context belies an astounding ignorance. i would gladly book this type action all day long.....

    if US (or anyone around for that matter) can do this, i'm the holy roman emperor.

    Guys we can go around and around on this all day long, let's just see if he can do it. All I'm saying is I for one think it's possible for one to to do, but to each his own.
