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 lost with Empress Josephine at Keeneland to fall to 14-for-30 since taking over this feature. Based on a $2 Win bet on the A.I. Pick of the Week, that’s $60 in wagers and payoffs totaling $57.80 for an ROI of $1.93 for every $2 wagered, the first time we’ve slipped below profitability. We need to go back on another winning streak.
This week, I ran Saturday’s races at the major tracks through the 1/ST BET programs and came up with our A.I. Pick of the Week:
Saturday, Oct. 23
Santa Anita No. 7 (7:08 p.m. ET/4:08 p.m. PT)
#1 Neptune’s Storm (6-5 ML odds)
* Neptune’s Storm ranks 1st in 17 of the 52 factors used by 1/ST BET A.I.
* This 5-year-old gelding also ranks 1st in 7 of the “Top 15 Factors” at betmix.com, including best speed at the track, best speed at the distance, best earnings at the track, best turf speed and best turf earnings.
* He also has the top trainer/jockey combo with Peter Miller and Flavien Prat.
