1/ST BET A.I. Pick of the Week (5-15)

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.

We’re back after taking the past two weeks off and hoping to end our four-week losing streak, though we’re still 5-for-11 overall since taking over this feature. Based on a $2 Win bet on the A.I. Pick of the Week, that’s $22 in wagers and payoffs totalling $25.20 for a still-profitable ROI of $2.29 for every $2 wagered.

I ran the Preakness undercard races through 1/ST BET’s programs and came up with Somelikeithotbrown as the A.I. Pick of the Week:

Saturday, May 15

Pimlico Race No. 12 (5:38 p.m. ET)

#1 Somelikeithotbrown (4-1 ML odds)

  • Somelikeithotbrown ranks 1st in 21 of 52 factors used by 1/ST BET A.I. 

  • The 5-year-old son of Big Brown and Marilyn Monroan (hence the catchy name that is also an ode to my favorite Kentucky dish that was created at the Brown Hotel in Louisville) also ranks 1st in 4 of the “Top 15 Factors” at betmix.com, including best speed in last three races, highest average lifetime earnings and also highest average turf earnings for this mile-and-a-sixteenth turf race. best win percentage (3-of-6 lifetime), and is in the Top 5 in all 9 other categories.

  • He’s also ranked in the Top 5 in 8 of the other 11 categories.
