Become A Proficient Horse Handicapper

Despite the fact that these big late bets are often based on superior insider information and/or information products the general public does not have access too, it has been statistically proven that they predict success at about the same rate as the public. These types of bets can make a horse a favorite in a short time. Long gone are the days when a trainer would work a horse up to 10 times out of the gate and seven furlongs in company before staring in a six furlong race.

Many of the owners are biased in favor of their own horse to start with, followed by jockeys, trainers, jockey agents and exercise riders. There are ther races!

With three different and often misinformed groups influencing the odds at various stages of the process leading up to post time, it pays to do your homework and wait for the odds to work in your favor. These hot tips can come from anyone including trainers, jockeys, exercise riders, owners, grooms, clockers, and hotwalkers. You can find out more on his website,www.bettingthehorsesonline.com

The most profitable approach is not only to become a proficient handicapper, but also to become adept at creating your own odds line.

You will occasionally see certain trainers who have operated at a 10 percent win clip for their entire careers. They are winning because of veterinarians and not because of their horse training! I suggest that you do not consider them a so called hot tip!

Many horse bettors and racetrack workers will often assume that a hot tip from someone who works at the track (jockey, trainer, owner, etc) is a good thing. Owners are also influenced by trainers who are trying some new medication or equipment on a horse, but you are better off looking at the program yourself for equipment changes. A hot tip from someone in the supposely know can spread like wild fire until it makes its way to the betting windows. If you have not yet placed a bet, I suggest th you simply skip the race.

Another so called inside tip is when you are told to place a bet on a first time starter who has been working well.

Many trainers nowadays give their horses as few as three gate works before entering them in race, and you will rarely see a workout longer than six furlongs on a first-time starter. Now all of a sudden, they are winning 30 to 40 percent or higher. In fact, more often than not, they can be a disaster. If you think these proven losers have all of a sudden become master horsemen and exceptional horse trainers; you are mistaken. These tips are not usually hot. Besides the fact that the tipsters have generally not considered the other horses in the race, the trainer usually will not have the horse ready to go the distance in an actual race. These trainers get hot for a few seasons and disappear into oblivion. They may know their horse is feeling good, but they fail to take into account the competition in the race.

Many horse bettors like to watch for the big money bets that occasionally flow into the mutuel pools just before post time. But why?

Mainly because the people who create the hot tips are concerned only with their own horse without consideration for the other horses in race.

Sell Sports Card Collection – InfoBarrel

The Internet is a fantastic place to buy and sell anything, including your sports card collection; however you must know how to be safe on the internet to avoid any possible scam.

You have worked hard to build it up so when the time comes to sell your sports card collection, you should give proper thought to where you are going to do this.  There are many options available, but not all of them will be suitable to you.  This article aims to give you the background information you need before you try to sell your sell your sports card collection.

First, you want to think about how much time and work you are prepared to put into the selling of your card collection.  If you don’t spend very long, as you only need some quick money, then the amount you get will undoubtedly be less than the amount you put more legwork into the process.

If they do not make you an offer, they may know someone who would be interesting in buying your sports card collection.  Card store owners usually know a lot of people within that niche and will likely know of a collector who is looking for cards like the ones in your collection.  Normally they can put you in contact with the interested buyer, or even arrange a meeting time from the store, for both your conveniences.  Then as long as everything goes well, you could work out a deal between the two of you.

If you want to put some backbone when you try to sell your sports card collection, then there are many options.  The best place to start is your local card shop.  Not only will they be able to help value your collection, but this is probably the best place to sell them from.  A lot of card shops will give you an outright offer almost immediately after valuing the collection.  They tend to give a really good deal, and this might be your best chance of an extremely good profit.. You need to remember also that it all comes down to basic economics, supply and demand.  The sports collection that is more likely to sell better is the one with the really popular star players, vintage and other special cards from the most popular years and printers.  If you have a more run of the mill collection, you may still get a good return, just not a great one. 

Demand for Sports Cards

It can be a tough decision to make, when deciding to sell sports card collection and how you are going to get the result you want.  There are always the big card shows, where you could either sell to a dealer, or sell from a stall.  Whichever way you decide to go, I hope this article has enlightened you to the options available to sell sports card collection.

Where to Sell my Sports Card Collection

If you do not have a local card store or the time to go to one there are still options available.  You could put a classified ad in your local paper, a trading magazine or some other place like that.  This may not provide you with the quick sale, or any sale, as you have to wait for people to contact you and then decide if their offer is good enough.  You could also put an advertisement on a place like Craigslist or something like that.  This has the same pitfalls as the printed method

Horse Racing Systems: 5 That Work

I was able to replicate this result in my own study of nearly 100,000 races conducted a decade later.

However, just because systems won’t make you rich doesn’t mean there’s no place for them at all in a horseplayer’s arsenal. With the BRIS pp’s you can use the Sire Production Factor in concert with the pedigree rating. Few bother to even look at the comment line for the race, let alone take the trouble to seek out and watch the replay of the race. My own studies have shown a similar advantage for the inside post in routes.

Horse Racing System #1 – In maiden races, bet the horse with the best last race speed figure that has had at least two career starts. The inside post combined with early speed is a particularly potent combination, since the horse will not have to exert himself as much to gain his preferred position at the front of the pack.

. Most people who love horse racing would be thrilled just to win a little more and lose a little less on their trips to the track.

How do we identify the best pedigree, then? If you’re using the DRF past performances, use the stud fee as a proxy for quality, and the Tomlinson figure to judge suitability for the distance and surface. I’ve identified some of the most useful handicapping factors that have a proven history of doing much better than the track takeout and put them together with some simple rules that should make your trips to the racetrack more fun and profitable. Let me let you in on a little secret about these “magic formulas”. The horse with the best combination of the two is the play.

This causes the favorite to be under bet in the place pool, leading to a profit opportunity for us to take advantage of by betting the favorite to place. Just don’t expect to quit your day job.

The horse with the best last race speed figure (whether Beyer, BRIS, or Equibase) may not be the best horse in the race, but he’s probably not far off, so we can use that as a proxy for selection purposes.

None of these systems will make you rich, or even guarantee that you will make a profit. This system takes advantage of one of the few glaring inefficiencies in the parimutuel pools, namely that first and second time starters are badly over-bet.

Horse Racing System #5 – Bet Horses breaking from the inside post in route races. To the extent that most handicappers use pedigree at all, it’s usually to identify horses that may improve when switched to the turf, or those who may be expected to win as first time starters. My computer studies of pedigree, based on nearly 100,000 races, suggest that using pedigree in that manner offers no advantage to the player.

In the first place, the parimutuel takeout in horse racing is large (over 15%) and the mutuel pools are relatively efficient, so that even systems with a strong basis in reality can’t overcome the size of the takeout.

For as long as humans have bet on horse racing there have been system sellers trying to con the gullible into parting with their hard earned money with the lure of easy profits to be made on the sport of kings. This offers opportunity to more diligent players.

Horse Racing System #3 – In maiden claiming races, bet the horse with the best pedigree. In most case the public seems to take a horse’s last running line at face value. The inside post in turf routes actually showed a small profit, but this was based on a small sample size and cannot be relied upon. They will, however increase the chances of a profitable day at the races by ensuring that your wager dollars go where they have the best chance of success. One of the few anomalies turned up by Michael Nunamaker in his pioneering computer study “Modern Impact Values”, published in 1994, was that horses breaking from the inside post position in route races won more than their fair share of races, and were under-bet by the public. It must follow, therefore, that if we bet the best horse that has started at least twice, we stand an excellent chance of beating the takeout, particularly in races that have several first and second time starters.

Horse Racing System #4 – Bet low-priced favorites to place. This is another mistake that bettors make: in a race with a clear standout, many people give up on the win pool and bet their choice to place, thinking that they’ll get paid even if the favorite wins.

Horse Racing System #2 – Bet horses that have an excuse for a poor performance in their last race. Look for comment lines like “bled”, “lost rider”, “clipped heels”, “stumbled”, “steadied”, “between horses”, “rank”, and “jumped shadows” that suggest that a horse’s last race was not indicative of its true ability. It should go without saying that you should actually like the favorite’s chances after evaluating the race with your own handicapping.

In fact, pedigree does not generally offer wager value with one curious exception: well bred horses do surprisingly well in maiden claiming races. Because speed figures have gained in popularity over the years, anyone following that system now would have trouble coming up with gas money for the ride home from the track.

Looking for a dead simple horse racing system that will allow you to quit your job and make a living betting the horses in just 10 minutes a day? Good luck with that!

In that spirit. If the tote board suggests that the public is overlooking these mitigating circumstances, make your play.

Nunamaker reported that the inside post in dirt route races won at a 20% greater than expected rate, and lost only 10 cents on the dollar, much better than the track take. This is somewhat counter-intuitive since you’d expect that horses with good pedigrees that end up in the maiden claiming ranks probably can’t run at all. None of them work.

For instance, many speed figure handicappers reported making horse racing profits in the 60’s and 70’s simply by betting horses with the best last race speed figure. Thanks for reading, and see you in the winner’s circle.

Second, the very nature of the parimutuel system itself means that any profits to be made from following a particular set of rules will quickly be arbitraged away as the followers of that system drive down the odds of horses chosen by the system.

Instead of blindly betting all horses breaking from the inside, you might use this to supplement your handicapping, paying particular attention to the inside horse, and betting it when you like the horse on other handicapping grounds. My study suggests that’s not the case.

First time starters return only about 60 cents on the dollar, and second time starters are only a little better, returning less than 70 cents on the dollar

Negative Effects of Gambling

The addiction has negative effects on one’s physical and mental health and it proves to be detrimental to one’s social, personal, and professional life. To add to the so-called merry atmosphere, gamblers often smoke or drink while playing.

? Problem gamblers and addicts tend to abuse their family members. According to the National Research Council, 10 to 17% of the children of problem gamblers have been abused and so have 25 to 50% of the partners of problems gamblers.

? The costs of treating compulsive gamblers are huge. It only leads to a thoughtless expenditure of money and valuables.. On giving a serious consideration to the negative effects of gambling, we realize that it is best avoided.

? According to a study by the George State University, 50% of the problem gamblers commit crime. The skill of a gambler lies in weighing the three parameters and making a decision about what amount should be staked and how much should be expected in return.

? As gambling leads to increased criminal activities, in a way, gamblers add to the burden on prisons and the legal system.

? The addiction to gambling can leave one in bankruptcy. This proves to be detrimental to their social and family life. Due to lost mental peace, they may ill-treat their spouse and children. The stress of risking huge amounts of money or the frustration after losing it can increase the tendency of abuse in gamblers. The effect is similar to that of having a drug or a drink, which is why gambling changes one’s mental state and mood.

? Substances of abuse are served at casinos and in pubs and clubs, thus increasing the likelihood of gamblers consuming them. A recreational activity is supposed to be refreshing and relaxing, but something like gambling is contrary to the very purpose of recreation. Their debt keeps building and it may reach an amount that exceeds their capacity to repay.

? Research has shown that gambling can lead to harmful behavior in people. It causes a decline in his/her work performance, thus hampering his career.

? Similar to how an individual keeps consuming substances like drugs or alcohol to experience an altered mental state, he continues to gamble. Rehabilitating the gambling addicts needs money and time, and the process is not very easy. The two go hand in hand. It can drag you into crime, gambling isn’t fun.

? Gambling at the cost of one’s job results in a decline in the quality of his professional life. In the following sections of this Buzzle article, we discuss the negative effects of gambling on the individual and society.

? Additionally, rehabilitation and public assistance systems are taxed.

? People continue gambling with the greed of winning money. The National Council of Problem Gambling (NCPG) describes this type of gambling behavior as problem gambling.

? An Austrian study said that around 1 in 5 suicidal patients had a gambling problem.

Compulsive gambling leads to bankruptcy

Gambling = Thoughtless Expenditure + Waste of Time

? According to a research by NCPG, 76 percent of problem gamblers are likely to have a major depressive disorder.

Games offered in casinos, table games like poker, Red Dog, and Blackjack, as also electronic games like Slot Machine and Video Poker are some of the common types of gambling. The decision to gamble money is based on three parameters namely; how much to bet, the predictability of the event, and the conditions agreed upon, between the gamblers. Some go that way to forget the sorrow of losing big sums when gambling.
