Jack Brayman's Rating System
No, not Gene's tongue and boys in war paint.
KISS as in "Keep it simple, stupid."
No complicated formulas; no complicated money-management systems. Short, sweet and too-the-point. My plays are rated on a scale that ranges between 10 and 100 Dimes.
This is the simplest and best way to let you know how strongly I feel about a selection each day, or how one selection compares to others on a given day.
And keep this in mind: If I'm showing a profit of 300 dimes (wins minus losses plus vig included), that means a gambler betting $10 per dime unit I released won $3000 as well (and that includes the losses and vig being subtracted).
Who is Jack Brayman?
Had a pretty successful 8-year run as a real estate broker here in Michigan where I'm based.
Then came 2008 and the recession.
Business tanked with the economy.
It finally started to rebound around 2013, but it's never going to be the same.
To make ends meet, I took a job as a ghost-writer for a online tip-sheet, proving my daily sports picks for their publications starting in 2010. You probably read my stuff because it was posted on a zillion sites designed to attract gamblers so they'd sign up for offshore sportsbook accounts.
I loved doing it and without it I don't know how I would have survived those lean years in the real estate biz.
I like to write and minored in English in college. I majored in business and "dabbled" in gambling as well.
I gave up my ghost-writing job in December. This will be the 1st time my picks are going to be available anywhere with my name on them.
No promises. No guarantees. We're either going to win together or I'll lose alone because you certainly aren't going to stick with me if I don't produce. And that's fair and to be expected.

Last night I nailed a 40 Dimer in college basketball, with Boston College rolling past Miami in ACC play.
Tonight I am in Big Sky action with the Idaho Vandals visiting Eastern Washington, where the Eagles are laying more than two touchdowns.
With the bankroll I've built over the past year - and a nice hefty one in 8 1/2 weeks - I'm ready to put that money to work in tonight's Big Sky battle.

My free play for tonight is Jackson State against Texas Southern, as I'm not bying the road Tigers laying points to the home Tigers.
Not when just 2 1/2 games separate the teams in SWACtion, and a late-season stretch could help propel Jackson State in the standings.
Texas Southern, which is mired in a 2-7 ATS slide, allows 80.2 points per game and 81.6 on the road. And even though it's won five in a row, four of them were at home. The lone road win was Saturday, a 1-point victory over Grambling.
Jackson State is starving for a victory, having lost three straight, so this is a good spot to expect these Tigers to play their best tonight, snap the skid and take advantage of Texas Southern's rather weak defense.
Take the home pup.
1♦ JACKSON STATE
