yes thank you that was helpful.
i'm still not clear on what the proper or best strategy would be for me when following someone's picks:
put $10 on a Win/Place/Show bet that costs me $30?
or just $20 on it to win and hope they win?
obviously the amounts will vary depending on bankroll so these are just examples of how i've played them.
sometimes i do a $10 W/P/S and then add another 10 to win.... or i JUST do a "win" bet (and inevitably miss out on some place/show results)
anyway, sorry for asking the same thing over again, i guess part of it just might be personal preference. but i thought maybe there was a smart basic standard way for me to follow FreshStart's picks and maximize payouts and not cost myself money by betting them wrong or inefficiently.
thanks to all!
