You left out something important

Yes, Magic City is, in a sense, giving free money to system players. It is likely that with the seed, and the ongoing talent mismatches, bettors who form a syndicate or group, and are betting big, are enjoying a permanent overlay in this bet.

That is annoying to most of us, because it means that they winning for reasons other than hcap skills, or jai-alai knowledge and love of the game, or great observational skills, or anything that we might normally respect.

However, besides all that they are also probably getting a nice REBATE, making their task even easier.

So it ends up being somewhat like strategic bankruptcies, where there are built-in 'exploits' in the system that are only available to those who are 'high level'.

Therefore, NOT a level playing field.

To compete, the Chalkies who are betting at a small scale would probably have to band together to form their own mini-syndicate.

But looking at this realistically, as long as MC doesn't go from one extreme to another, and pull the plug on this bet, it isn't hurting me or any others here.
