Aqueduct Fall Meet Handicapping Preview

Bet the Kentucky Derby at USRacing Today!Aqueduct Fall Meet Handicapping Preview for many horseplayers and handicappers, the approaching winter racing season means Florida and Southern California racing is soon to come, as the best racing of the season migrates away from cold-weather places. However, there’s at least one cold-weather place where racing continues all through the fall and winter. And it’s a place that handicappers should not overlook — Aqueduct.

Even if you are the type of horseplayer who prefers to play the big winter meets at this time of year, Aqueduct offers excellent betting opportunities for winter-racing horseplayers, particularly on weekends, with big pools and big purses and good racing during the otherwise sparse months of December, January and February. Plus, the November portion of the Aqueduct meet is amongst the best there is in racing for much of the month.

Aqueduct opened on Friday, Nov. 2, and will race on a five-day-per-week schedule through November. Racing at Aqueduct switches to four days a week from December through March. And note that Aqueduct will not be closed for its holiday break, as has been the case in years past.

The 2018-19 Aqueduct winter schedule will all be run on the new winterized main track surface, which was inaugurated last season to good reviews. Therefore, any statistical information older than last season, obviously, is irrelevant, including stats on turf races, because now the turf races are divided into inner- and outer-course affairs, thereby making old turf numbers and trends irrelevant too. What was the inner track is now a second turf course at Aqueduct and, if you like turf racing, you can bet that the Aqueduct turf courses will be used to the fullest throughout November to mid-December. After that, the turf will not be a part of the winter racing product at Aqueduct until the climate permits the grass courses to reopen next April.

NFL Betting Tips on How to Handicap Fading Teams

NFL Betting Tips on How to Handicap Fading Teams
Written by Jordan Walters on July 14, 2017

Sports Betting Explained
What is fading a team in sports betting? It simply means betting against them in any game they are playing. It’s not always going to mean wagering against a team that’s lousy. For example, the Jacksonville Jaguars were just 3-13 last NFL season but they lost a lot of close games and managed to go 8-8 ATS. Here are some examples of when to fade this coming season. Also, be sure to check out for more NFL betting odds and picks for this season.
NFL Betting Tips on How to Handicap Fading Teams
Road Teams On Short Week
A few years ago, the NFL – in its attempt to make even more money – decided to stage a Thursday night game every week of the regular season except Week 17. The only reason it’s not the final week of the season is that the league doesn’t want two teams on short rest having to play an important game that could determine a playoff spot or seeding, etc. It’s statistically proven that the road teams in these quick-turnaround games are at a significant disadvantage. They basically only get one full day of practice because of resting up after the previous Sunday on Monday and then traveling to the new city on Wednesday. The home team essentially gets one full day of practice extra – and home field is worth 3 points or so regardless. Since Thursday night football became a weekly season-long deal in 2012, excluding the opening games not subject to a short week, the home team has won about 56 percent of the time.
