It's Kentucky Derby Week! We've got Bonus Stuff!

Normally I use this space for some pithy commentary on the world of sports betting or the world in general. But it's Kentucky Derby Week, so we'll dispense with that for the day and replace it with some shameless self-promotion:

Weekend results

Friday was so-so with Neal Abrams leading the way, going 6-2 in the quarterfinals at the Hungarian and Barcelona tournaments.

Saturday and Sunday, however brought better fortune: Boop Vetrone went 6-2 on Philly Prop bets, Greg Frank was 4-1 on the NBA playoffs. Howard Gensler went 3-1 filling in on baseball. Craig Dietel went 2-1 on the NHL Playoffs. Mark Eckel picked the Geico 500 NASCAR winner. And although we haven't yet tallied up the horse racing weekend for RTand Chris Garrity, Mick McMudder picked four winners Saturday and two more on Sunday. The only guys who struggled this weekend were our two top percentage pickers: Neal Abrams on tennis and Sean Miller on soccer. But they always rebound.

We'll try to do better today.

Good luck at the tables, windows, kiosks and apps.
