Destroy the bookies

Old highland had 2 possibly brilliant ideas yesterday while walking past one of London's innumerable betting parlours. 1) was to complete my butt-kicking of Ladbrokes with a clean sweep of NCAA Tournament specials; and 2) why not place a couple of quid on the Angels home opener?

I did both, aptly cleaned up on the NCAA tourney (made £65 overall, which ain't bad, about $130 in old money), and won my little bet on the Halos as Weav and Zilla carried the men in red to victory.

Which got me to thinking ... what if I put £2 on the Angels to win every game, consistently every single game this season? Well, surely they will be a winning team. Surely I can't lose? ... A mate of mine said I could lose, depending on whether the Angels win all the games in which they are favoured and lose the ones in which they are underdogs. I could see his point, but I am not good enough at math to know whether or not to carry on this experiment.

Any math wiz's care to enlighten me as to whether my Bet on the Angels Every Day scheme is a good one? Let's kick some Twinkie butt. xx
