Buffalo's Mighty 16 is only 3 weeks away and I know some of you boys (and girls -- Hi! Mary) are gettin' the itch. Well you know you can count on your pal LSJohn's altruistic instincts to help you scratch that itch. Fortunately, our even more generous Mr. Booth has agreed to kick in a few thousand (or did he say "hundred"? -- um or "bucks"? -- whatever) if you guys don't mind dropping by to reserve your piece of it.

Steve is very wealthy :D but I'm not, so be gentle. Besides, we're a little green which is why we're bein' WAY too generous with these sweet prices. :)

So here goes:

Maximum WIN bet is $100, or even less if you choose a player who is over 550. IOW Maximim payout is 550 to each bettor for each win bet, so adjust the amount of your bet accordingly if you choose a player with longer odds. Example: If you bet JJ to win (+800) maximum bet to win would be $68 to win $545 (round numbers). If you bet Josh, Jason or Evan (+600) it's 90 to win 540.

Minimum bet is $20.


Max Bet $100
PLAYER ODDS

1. ALEX PAGULAYAN -- +180. Bet 100 TO WIN 180
2. DENNIS ORCOLLO -- +200 Bet 100 to win 200
3. TONY CHOHAN -- +300 Bet 100 to win 300
4. FRANCISCO BUSTAMANTE -- +375 Bet 100 to win 375
5. SCOTT FROST -- +400 Bet 100 TO WIN 400
6. COREY DEUEL -- +450 Bet 100 to win 450
7. JUSTIN HALL -- +450
8. EFREN REYES -- +550 Bet 100 to win 550
9. DANNY SMITH -- +550
10. CHIP COMPTON -- +550
11. JOSH ROBERTS -- +600 BET 90 TO WIN 540
12. JASON BROWN -- +600
13. EVAN LUNDA -- +600
14. JEREMY JONES -- +800 BET 68 TO WIN 545
15. ROBERTO GOMEZ -- +800
16. MARK GREGORY -- NO BET (Sorry, don't know his game)

As before, we'll only accept bets from people we know or can verify with people we know.

We'll settle up both directions via paypal the week after (or you can do snail mail if you prefer.)

Good luck

I'll take $50 on Josh R and $50 on Dennis O, please confirm. If I need to be verified, I can just ship the hundy now, and go from there.

Racist Bastard!

We don't do business with your kind (except right now we're a little short of cash, so you've got it!)

Alex, Dennis, Django, Efren and Roberto

edit: (the more I think about it, the more I like the way you're thinkin'... seems like that has to be a good bet.)

You've got it Keith. We planned 100 max, but I'll take the other half in case my podnah wants to keep it at 100. (You don't need to know where every one of your easy pickins dollars are coming from. :) )

Edit: Aw shit... I read it backwards... I thought you were bettin' 200. You'd have been really surprised if I sent you 800 for your $50 bet :D

Its like going to the track, reviewing the card, finding the shortest chalk for the day and then betting $100 to show. Keith

Hey, 40 cents don't grow on trees! :D

Reminds me... some tracks used to have a 2.40 minimum payout that made this kind of bet one that tracks could theoretically lose money on. Has that changed?

I think the track takes 20% out of the total handle before the payouts but Im not completely sure. Mr Miller would know that stuff for sure. I like the "40 cents don't grow on trees" analogy. Hey that pay out on the $100 bet may even pay the parking and entry fee!!! Keith

Yeah, I think around 20% is pretty normal, but when tracks guaranteed a minimum payout of 2.40, a massive amount of bets on the shortest odds might make the correct parimutuel payout 2.35, (or something) but they had to pay 2.40 anyway. Even in most of those cases, the 20% would have covered more than their .05 shortfall.

I'm guessing they don't do that anymore.

Less that two weeks away.

I'm getting itchy myself. I'm trying to get there on Tuesday, but probably not until Wednesday.

He's playing great, isn't he.

You've got it podnah. 50 for 187.50. Screw it, I'll go out on a limb and make it 188. :D
Thanks a wise man once told me "40 cents don't grow on trees", this is a dime better. I love a bargain. Keith

Naw, that guy is an idiot... he came through my neighborhood one time sellin' pots and pans door-to-door and smelled so bad he had a whole line of cats following him.
