EYE ON LIVE
If you bet ALL of Rob's picks last year, you would have made money
How’s this for a significant stat? If you blindly bet $10 to win and place on EVERY ONE of paddock host Rob MacLennan’s picks during live racing last year, YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN UP MORE THAN $338 at the end of the season. (If you just bet $10 to win, you would have been up $190.)
The same with his pick-4s. Simply wheeling his selections for $1 would have given you an end-of-season profit of $153.85. Not huge, of course, but you would not have lost money. And, with a little of your own initiative, you could have massaged his picks and perhaps turned out bigger profits both in the win/place department and in pick-4s.
Win/place and the pick-4 was the way to go. His recommended exactors resulted in a $220.95 loss and his Super Hi 5 plays resulted in a total loss of $326.52, his stats show.
Interestingly, if you simply had bet $2 to show on all of his top selections, you would have had almost a break-even season, with a tiny $4.70 loss. Lots of action, lots of cashing, at hardly any cost – with, of course, no expectation either that you’d be going on a shopping spree at the end of the season.
Don’t you think Rob’s win/place record is better than one could expect from any handicapper anywhere? After all, track handicappers don’t have a choice; they MUST pick a horse to win every race -- often when races are confusing toss-ups.
