XpressBet editor-in-chief Jeremy Plonk offers his best bets for Thursday with help from the 1ST/BET Artificial Intelligence programs, one at Tampa Bay Downs and one at Gulfstream.

Tampa Bay Downs Race No. 4 (1:55 p.m. ET/10:55 a.m. PT)

#7 Thejigisup (5-1 ML)

Not only has trainer Pablo Torres won with 4 of his last 6 starters at Tampa Bay Downs the past 2 weeks, all 4 of them paid a massive $20-plus mutuel. Who can bet against a guy with a $11.63 ROI for every $1 bet during that span? Thejigisup started that hot streak Dec. 7 with a victory and wheels back quickly while the outfit seemingly can't lose. Win bet.

Gulfstream Park Race No. 8 (3:37 p.m. ET/12:37 p.m. PT)

#10 Full Disclosure (4-1 ML)

Trainer Elizabeth Dobles' last 8 starters at Gulfstream have netted an incredible 5 wins and 3 third-place finishes. She has one starter on the Thursday card and we'll roll the dice even from a difficult post position. Full Disclosure has won 3 of his last 7 starts and was a neck away last time from another score when the runner-up. Win bet. Exacta box 10-3 with the Todd Pletcher-trained Meetmeinkingston (also from a white-hot current barn).
