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 just below .500 at 26-for-54 since taking over this feature about a year ago. Based on a $2 Win bet on the A.I. Pick of the Week, that’s $108 in wagers and payoffs totaling $102.90 for an ROI of $1.91 for every $2 wagered.
This week, I ran the races picked by our stable of handicapping friends at “Team Tuley’s Thoroughbred Takes” through the 1/ST BET programs and came up with our A.I. Pick of the Week:
Saturday, May 14, 2022
