Complete archive of 2004 daily Best Bets picks and plays pages.


Just goes to show that handicapping and wagering are two different aspects of the game as the picks were solid -- we went 5-9 on the picks page with three double digit winners -- but we just couldn't get it done over here. Went 4-6 in our P6 play. And our top pick won the nightcap at 5-1 but we couldn't fill out our super.
