  • Blog Post: BELMONT DAY BETS TO AVOID

    Triple bets are sometimes also called Trifecta bets. The bet requires that you correctly pick the first three finishers in the race in exact order. The track takeout on exotic bets, such as Triples, is huge. Depending on the track, the house cut of the betting pool ranges from 20%-35%. Imagine if your...
  • Blog Post: OFFSHORE ACCT - THURS 8/27 LATE MLB PLAY IN REPLIES

    Once upon a time, a long time ago, in the land of Las Vegas, far far away, when Pregame was just a fantasy in RJ's head (when you are surrounded by show girls all day, you fantasize about sports websites), there was something called the PLUS10 Club. Rumor has it the Plus10 still exists. Check it...

  • Blog Post: LESSON: HANDICAPPING WITH THE RACING FORM

    Today is the day for the 135th Running of the Kentucky Derby. The Derby is the Super Bowl of horse racing.

  • Blog Post: ARENA FOOTBALL IS EASY PICKINGS

    Can somebody explain to me why Arena Football is so much less popular than the NFL and NCAA? Perhaps the problem is that the smaller field takes away some of the psychological excitement. Football, after all, is a macho sport, and we all know small just ain't macho. Whether or not you are an Arena...
  • Blog Post: WHY BIG BROWN FAILED TO DELIVER

    It took Rick Dutrow almost two days to finally place the blame for Big Brown's failure on jockey Kent Desmoreaux. Dutrow and other observers have said that Desmoreaux tried to force Big Brown to the outside in a panic. That's probably true, but it still doesn't explain Big Brown's refusal...
  • Blog Post: ROB CROWNE FREE PICK FOR SUNDAY JULY 27

    The WNBA is particularly easy pickings for the professional handicapper for many of the same reasons that I wrote about in my article regarding Arena Football. Linemakers set the line based on a desire to split the public action. The linemaker does not base the line on his opinion of the final game result...
  • Blog Post: ONE TRIPLE CROWN RACE TOO MANY

    Almost every year that a horse has wins in the first two legs of the Triple Crown under its belt, and this year for Calvin Borel, a jockey with two Triple Crown wins under his belt, the Belmont Stakes became one Triple Crown race too many. The same was true for us and our Belmont Package. The Belmont...
  • Blog Post: WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE WNBA? + A FREEBEE

    Okay, unlike my recent article asking why Arena Football wasn't as popular as the NFL, I know why no one likes the WNBA. Last week one of the ladies in the WNBA actually managed to dunk the ball and it made front page headlines and the highlight films on every sports broadcast. If there was ever...
  • Blog Post: THE ONLY WAY TO PARLAY + ROB CROWNE FREEBIE

    I don't know how many times I've said and written, "parlays are sucker bets." Normally, they are, but not always. To understand why parlays are sucker bets, you first must understand the nature of a parlay. A parlay is a single bet on one proposition, and, if it wins, all the money...

  • Blog Post: The AFL IS EASY PICKINGS - Part 2

  • Blog Post: A DAY AT THE RACES

    What a day it was! A terrific day! A GIANT day! It was the kind of day most people have never had in their lives in horse racing.
