With many tracks now offering a lower takeout Pick-5, it has been rapidly growing in popularity and has become the go-to bet for many players. That popularity has created huge liquidity in one of the few pools where the new Computer Robotic Wagering (CRW) methods seem to have very little edge over the everyday player. Given that, I thought players would love to hear the insights of a few highly respected, successful players about how to structure tickets and attack the Pick 5. There is a lot of great information and discussion about handicapping races generally available but not nearly so much about how to structure tickets and bet races based on your handicapping opinion. This is an attempt to begin to address that deficiency for what is one of the most popular and challenging wagers of all, the Pick-5. I asked four top players to answer a list of questions. Their full responses to each question are included at the end but we will begin with a brief summary of their combined wisdom focusing on points of general consensus but also highlighting some key differences. I know I learned a lot through these discussions, and I hope that you will as well. Please click on the following link to find out more.
