Re: Texas Rangers 2½ System

Padilla's fastball is on target as was expected. Come on Rangers let's see some runs!! I felt so confident I ended up putting a little more on this wager. Although a gentleman does not discuss the size of his unit, I felt like sharing this time.

Quitting now would be a sucker play - we are due. It's like we got tails 10 times in a row - you know to balance things out we are going to get a bunch of heads soon.

Re: Texas Rangers 2½ System

I just love how the "Texas rangers 2.5 system" is just, "Bet on the rangers -2.5."

Re: Texas Rangers 2½ System

I've been gambling for a long time, folks, and I can't remember a string of luck this bad. Yesterday it took a while for me to calm down after the game. Eventually I calmed down and objectively speaking, I still like what I see. Yes, the Rangers only put up 2 runs yesterday. But both of them were off SOLO home-run shots. There were several instances of bases full of runners in yesterday's game. If a few things were shifted around and those home-runs were hit with runners on base, then it would have been a totally different result. The Texas Rangers HR-to-Runs-Scored Ratio is why I like the Rangers -2.5 so much and that hasn't changed.

Friday (1 Play)
1 Unit on Texas Rangers -2½ +258 (5Dimes)

Re: Texas Rangers 2½ System

LOL

I swear this happened in the time it took me to see the score, come here and post, and then open up gamecast.

J Thome doubled to deep center, C Getz, J Fields and C Quentin scored. 3 3

Saturdays the day we all get healthy. Rangers at home facing Contreras: he of the 6.75 ERA.

Rangers -2 1/2 for 10 units baby. It's gonna happen.

Updated YTD: 1-15, -14.55 units, 18 units wagered, -80.3% ROI

[x] rage

Saturday (1 Play)
1 Unit on Texas Rangers -2½ +230 (Greek)

FWIW, I really like The Rangers today against Contreras. Normally that would mean a double unit, but lately my convictions aren't worth a damn.
