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.
