Well either way brackson13, You have a following of members that very few ever could have. You handled the popularity with class. 
For that reason I sincerely hope you win the game tomorrow.
You and your wife deserve a nice getaway after all this.
Have fun and good luck tomorrow.

To follow this type of chase in order to gain the 1-unit per chase sequence, Bart_ is exactly on target with this estimation.  Consider the current chase sequence (that started on 4/25) for a $10/unit bettor, meaning a bankroll of $2000:

A. (-135 odds)  lay $13.50 to win $10   Loss, in the hole $13.50.
B. (-230 odds)  lay $54.00 to win $23.50   L, in the hole $67.50.
C. (-225 odds)  lay $174.40 to win $77.50   L, in the hole $241.90.
D. (-195 odds)  lay $491.20 to win $251.90    **today's wager**

If this sequence was to go to an (E) game, let's say tomorrow's odds for the RL +1.5 was the average, about -165 odds.  This would mean you would need to wager:

E. (-165 odds)  lay $1226 to win $743

                                   $1226  (amount you need to wager)
                                +   $733  (amount lost during A - D games)
                             -----------------------
                                =  $1959   (from your $2000 bankroll)

Again, this is based on following a chase sequence in its most basic, classic sense, which gains 1 unit per sequence. 

Previous posters have posted different amounts of money....These amounts above are correct!  Like Jeff, I've been betting various chase systems for years.  Long periods of success, with an occasional bomb (for me anyway). 

Another previous post wondered if Vegas is messing with the rotation?   Absolutely not, the rotation is based on:  NL first, with earliest game time given precedence.  The RL+ odds are historically consistent, which are basically based on a formula that considers underdog ML and whether that team is a visitor or home team. 

Incidentally, for those that are curious, I've followed the RL results for each rotation # this system (rotations 1 through 16).  This, of course, has been inspired by Jeff's following of rotation #1.  Here are some tidbits:

ROT #1 started the season on a W8 streak.
ROT #7 has had a W10 streak.
ROT #4 has had an L6 streak.
ROT #13 has had an L6 streak. 
ROT #8 is 21-5, the best record of all 16 rotations.

There have been 373 games, with the RL+1.5 record being 233-140, which is 62.5%. 

GL to all.  (D) and (E) games are not for the faint-of-heart.... And remember Bart_'s bankroll guideline!

Very nice work Grunk. Bettors that chase the loss blindly, always seem surprised when game (D), (E), & {Heaven forbid} (F) appear. It's easy to bet (A) & (B). Any of us can do that.... BUT (F), that's another level of gambling. GL Guys, Beat The Book.    Out
