#131 - Seriously, any way to play Hamilton tri?

Posted on February 13, 2006 at 10:59:10 AM by Tiger

Please don't just blow off the question - I'm looking for some creative thought.

There's always an angle - try this one:

There have been 54 games played since WPS betting was dropped. 18 of those had a tri REFUND, so any tri bet with the winning team would have taken the entire pool.

If you bet 8 combos per game, topped by the numbers 1 thru 8, you would have wagered $378* (certainly no logic to betting more than $1 into this pool). You'd have won 14 uncontested tris, with a total payout of $1404 (plus some other odds and ends) - more than a $1,000 profit. If the pools are smaller, the same logic applies.

So, who will be the first to try - or has a different angle?

*Corrected to allow for only 6 teams in doubles games - thanks, Hamilton.
