Darth Wager:

2017 Record:

Last weeks record: 10-8

Units  last week: +545 Units

Units Overall: +461 units  Units

Overall Record: 135-124 (52%)

Each initial bet begins with a 100 unit bet.  For each loss  the bet is doubled the next game they play. This Darth Wager theory is based on betting against  teams on streak. The republic has to win sooner or later right.
