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.
Today's Complimentary Play
Posted by 3 p.m. eastern on weekdays; 10 a.m. eastern on weekends.
My free winner for today: Milwaukee at ST. LOUIS (-1', +130)
My $10 Bettors have made $20,270 with my NBA plays since last season, after sweeping the NBA this weekend, with my 200 Dimer on the Houston Rockets on Saturday and my 100 Dimer on the Boston Celtics on Sunday.
More recently, my $10 Bettors have made $12,870 in the past 41 days. Think about that, we're talking nearly $13 Grand in less than six weeks. You're making more with me than any other handicapper and certainly more than you're making with that garbage-ass Rite-Aid stock.
Tonight I'm taking a break from the NBA, as there is better value in baseball.
I love one game today, and it's a blowout.
And remember, $10 bettors have won $29,157 the past 398 days.

My free winner for tonight is on the St. Louis Cardinals Run Line, against the visiting Milwaukee Brewers.
Since every MLB wager on a run line or total auto-lists pitchers, I want you to be sure the two pitchers on your ticket, when making this play, are Adrian Houser and Jack Flaherty. If they are not the pitchers of record when making your play, disregard this play.
This one has everything to do with the pitchers, as I see a mismatch with this duel.
I'll start with Houser, who made two relief appearances for the Brewers in 2015 and seven more last season. But he's never made a major league start, and today he is being called up from Triple-A San Antonio to make his first-ever start. It's one thing for a pitcher to make his MLB debut as a starter, but he's been in the system, and he has a file. There is film to see, and the Cardinals' lineup will be ready to pounce.
Meanwhile, I expect Flaherty to pitch well, as it's been a rough start 2019. His efficiency has been a big issue, as he's pitched past the fifth inning only once in four starts. And in facing the Brewers twice this season, Flaherty has been pelted for nine runs and 16 hits in seven innings already.
Flaherty will be much better in this game, while he should get plenty of run support from his team attacking Houser quick.
Take the Redbirds here.
