HANDICAPPING HEROES -- RESULTS FROM BELMONT LATE PK 5 -- 7/7/18
The Handicappers met the competitive Pick Five at Belmont on Saturday and had big success in handicapping the races. Paulie and Archie, combined, gave you all five winners. Playing their combined picks would have cost you $512 but returned $7600.25 !!
That's equal to hitting at 14-1 shot. One could have even taken the handicappers top two picks in each race and just bet those and got out for $216 and still hit it. That's like having a 35-1 hit first place for you.
To score on big days like this, sometimes you have to risk a rather expensive outlay to receive a significant return. It's called gambling. Many handicappers avoid the multi-race sequence wagers and concentrate on win, place, show or exacta and trifecta attempts. High risk, high reward is available most of the time, though, in the Pick 3, Pick 4 and Pick 5 attempts.
Don't get me wrong here. I've seen huge multi-race sequences hit on very minimal tickets. I've seen huge tickets lose or return less than the original investment. I've also heard the lament "Oh, if we had only included 'that' horse. He was third in my picks for that race!" Syndicates can help defray individual costs but syndicates can also disagree in the final selections and really jack a price up or have people drop out because they aren't satisfied with either the cost or the selections.
As our handicapping partner Scott says: "We can pick the winners but we can't choose the prices."
To each his own. Always remember to "bet within your personal limits" and set a budget.
Here's how "A&P" did yesterday.
ARCHIE had four winners in the five race sequence. He also had three seconds, three thirds, two exactas, two trifectas. Although none of his top picks took a race, his selections were still very accurate. ARCHIE FINISHES THE DAY WITH 31 POINTS.
PAULIE also gave you four winners yesterday. Three places and two shows also. "No service Paulie" tacked on three exactas, two trifectas and the early Pick 3 of the sequence. In his top picks...Catholic Boy, Athena and Limousene Liberal hit the wire first. PAULIE TAKES THE COMPETITION WITH 35 POINTS.
