Here’s yet the latest example in which the ol’ cliche ‘Be careful what you wish for; you just might get it’ proves itself eternally infallible…
It used to be, the opponents had only eight innings to defeat the La-La Land Los Doyers, since the shutdown closer was guaranteed to give up nothing in the ninth. Now, those same opponents have as many outs as they need to get the win. No lead is safe! Hoo-boy.
#5 Cinco Cino Diez ($73.20, BestLine Fair Odds 5.90-1)
#1 That Makes Sense ($37.40, BestLine Fair Odds 4.49-1)
#7 Jazzy J ($27.60, BestLine Fair Odds 6.09-1)
#4 Stephanie’s Faith ($37.20, BestLine Fair Odds 7.33-1)
Delpark 9 (Low-Priced Overlay of the Day)
#2 Rill in the Hills ($9.20, BestLine Fair Odds 1.74-1)
Uh-oh. A calculated morning-line edge of 274pc in Evangeline Race 2 on BestLine’s top honkin’ choice — now what? Only four horses in Race 6 there, but it’s evenly matched. Race 7 is a cash scramble, and you don’s even need to enter the wind tunnel to grab the green. Race 8 has a 47.5pc probability of winning attached to one horse; who is it!
Not putting out the fire. Putting Napalm on it, like the old L.A. Dodger reliever Tom ‘Napalm’ Niedenfuer. Remember that guy? Of course you do! Ozzie Smith blew him up in the ninth inning of Game 5 of the 1985 NLCS. Napalm Niedenfuer.
