1/ST BET A.I Pick of the Week (3-27)

By Dave Tuley  ( senior reporter)

We’ve been tinkering with the Artificial Intelligence programs at 1/ST BET, which gives us more than 50 data points (such as speed, pace, class, jockey, trainer and pedigree stats) for every race based on how you like to handicap.

Last Saturday, we had another winning A.I. Pick of the Week as Colonel Liam won Fair Grounds’ 12th race and paid $3.40. That makes our plays 4-or-6 since taking over this feature. So, based on a $2 Win bet on the A.I. Pick of the Week, that’s $12 in wagers and payoffs totalling $21 for a healthy ROI of $3.50 for every $2 wagered.

For this weekend’s races, I ran my team’s picks from my Tuley’s Thoroughbred Takes column at through the 1/ST Bet programs and came up with my colleague John Lauro’s pick in Gulfstream’s 12th race (the Cutler Bay Stakes) on Saturday as the best betting value and our A.I. Pick of the Week:

Saturday, March 27

Gulfstream Race No. 11 (4:43 p.m. ET)

#6 Annex (5-2 ML odds)

  • Ranked 1st in 15 of 52 factors used by 1/ST BET A.I.
