Kind of kicking ourselves that we didn't play a little bolder with our picks in the 2nd and 8th. We made money, but we could have made much more. There were any number of options available to capitalize a little more on those two good prices -- daily doubles, pick plays, etc... Heck, a $10 win parlay would have returned well over $800.

Oh well, live and learn... To be bold!
