Week 4 Result: WIN (-$7.20) WIN/PLACE/SHOW ($103.60) UP $96.40

So why did we just go over the results up till this point. First off USFantasy is still an evolving product and by doing this I think we learned a few things.

Across the board (WIN/PLACE/SHOW) is the best bet on the board, it comes with the least amount of risk as example see Dez Bryant from last week a $6 collected $44.40, great return on your investment. As you saw in Week 4, we made the most money but played way too many bets ($112) winning $96.40. Stick with a few plays and don’t be afraid to play the exacta or trifectas. The money that can be made from those bets, some exactas near $1K for $2, outweighs the risks just don’t get carried away. Stick to the across the board.

Finally let’s list a couple plays this week:

Prop #1

Marcus Mariota, QB, TEN (99-1): Mariota has been heating up as of late, some of that has to do with the defensive talent he’s seen some I believe is of his making. While he is not the typical gunslinger, I think he has success this week against San Diego and will be a nice price if he hits the board.

Prop #2

DeMarco Murray, RB, TEN (17-1): As a way to back up the ambitious Mariota play let’s take his running back Murray. DeMarco has completely bounced back from the disaster in Philly, he was a little banged up which could lead to Derrick Henry taking some work, I still feel confident in DeMarco.

Prop #3

Brandon Cooks, WR, NO and Kelvin Benjamin, WR, CAR with Cooks, Benjamin, Brandon Marshall, WR, NYJ, Antonio Brown, WR, PIT, Dez Bryant, WR, DAL: EXACTA BOX. So let’s get crazy with this one it’s a $12 bet. Basically we have Cooks and Benjamin to finish first or second, while the other three must come first or second with them. Should look like this on your ticket: $1 EXACTA BOX 3,9 with 2-4,6,9 $12. If you got that hopefully they come in.
