Where most see a problem, the enlightened see an opportunity.
Rather than permit Major League Baseball’s various projection systems a chance to throw a wet blanket over your interest in the 2019 San Francisco Giants, let’s take matters into our own hands and ensure a compelling baseball campaign regardless of win/loss record.
I refuse to stand idly by while the iconic Bruce Bochy commences his final managerial campaign flirting with last place in the National League West. Therefore, I’m taking it upon myself to sprinkle some additional interest onto the 2019 season.
For this challenge, 1 unit will be defined as $100.
Example: As of the time of this writing, the Giants are listed at +110 for their season opener against the San Diego Padres. That means:
1-unit wager: $100 bet to win $110
2-unit wager: $200 bet to win $220
3-unit wager: $300 bet to win $330
The reason for the cap at 3 units is to prevent a situation in which I am down so much at the end of the season that I make a $50,000 wager on the Giants in order to get back to even. I refuse to allow myself cheap loopholes to avoid the pregnancy simulator.
I think that about covers it. For those who think this write-up is too excessive, keep in mind the fact that the Declaration of Independence is 1,458 words, while this article is just 526 words.
You’re welcome. God Bless America and God Bless the San Francisco Giants.
Unless I’m betting against them.
