Hey boys, new to this joint but excited to be here. I've been betting for a decade, but have kept pretty quiet about it; I have a few buddies I talk about gambling with, but it's a small circle. I was born and raised in Kansas and have been watching Jay Hawks basketball for over 30 years. I love betting on College B-Ball, but the MLB, NFL and NBA are my best sports.

I have used a variety of handicapping methods over the years and am pretty happy with my current methods. I figured I might as well join a community or two to talk the shit with like-minded peers ... so here I am.

Nice to meet you all and i'm looking forward to learn, share and win money!

My betting style is as follows:

At the beginning of the year I decide my starting bank.

  • I rank my bets either 5 units or 2 units (about 75% of my picks are ranked as 2 units, the other 25% as 5 units). 1 unit is equal to 1% of my starting bank, so a 2 unit bet is 2% of my starting bank.
  • I'd say that I make around 1000 bets per year (to give a rounded number) and I try to win 56% of my picks and I aim to profit 200 units each year.
  • I watch/track my average line (bet) very closely, as juice can KILL you over the course of a year and so can betting over priced lines.
  • I like for my average line to finish in the -110 to -113 range, to ensure a yearly ROI of +200%.
So anyways, that's a brief intro about me. Real name isn't Rex Walters, but I chose this name not only because it sounds cool, but in remembrance of the year Rex Walters lead the Jay Hawks to the final four (1993). Walters, who is the same age as me, was an inspiration for me at College, overseas, in the NBA and even now; coaching San Francisco in the NCAA. He reminds me that no matter your age or personal situation: always follow your heart, work hard and dream big.

I'll keep a season long thread going for tracking purposes.

You sound like a cool dude and very together with your capping...will be following Rex. Thanks for the effort.

To follow the CBB and NHL picks will they all go in this thread or will you have a different thread for each?

Thanks everybody for the warm welcome. Nice to be "around" some like-minded people.

Catchn flops. I'm new to forum posting, but had been encouraged to post in here before from buddies. I asked them what they thought, before, and was told that it would be too much clutter to post all of my wagers in one thread. They said some people frowned upon it, but more importantly it would be too hard to track what the fuck i'm betting. So to hell with it, i'll post the correct picks in the correct threads and I'll try to mention (in my wager posts) that I have picks in other sports.

Thanks boys.

By the way .. no NHL wager tonight. I was hoping the Winnipeg ML line would open around -110, but they didn't. I really wanted to bet them and my old self still would, but I am not risking -133 juice on a below .500 team. I still recommend them to the juice bettors out there, but it's not for me boys.

GL tonight

I was in the same boat with the Jets and by the time I got the courage to bet them, they were off the board. I know what you are saying about laying juice on a below .500 team but they are 18 - 11 at home. Their record is more indicative of their travel schedule for being in the division they are in.. Hurts them a ton on the road but good advantage getting those south eastern teams into Winnipeg.

Good Luck on your plays..
