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 won with Neptune’s Storm at Santa Anita to get closer to .500 at 15-for-31 since taking over this feature. Based on a $2 Win bet on the A.I. Pick of the Week, that’s $62 in wagers and payoffs totalling $60.80 for an ROI of $1.96 for every $2 wagered, as we try to get back to overall the first time profitability. Every winning streak has to start with one win in a row, so hopefully we build on that.
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. 30
Belmont Race No. 9 (4:52 p.m. ET/1:52 p.m. PT)
#5 Americanrevolution (7-5 ML odds)
* Americanrevolution ranks 1st in a whopping 22 of the 52 factors used by 1/ST BET A.I.
* This 3-year-old colt also ranks 1st in 10 of the “Top 15 Factors” at betmix.com, including last race class, best speed in last three races, last turn time and last late pace.
* He also has Tood Pletcher for a trainer (top trainer winning percentage over past year) and jockey Luis Saez (top jockey win percentage over past two years).
