Superfecta Strategy


Some of you might have noticed the SUPERFECTA payouts are fantastic compared to the trifecta payouts. Very often in a race were the trifecta pays $150 or so, the SUPERFECTA can pay $800 or more!. Many bettors are afraid of supers because they don't know how to play them or how much they cost. First we will give you an actual example from a recent report using one of our favorite plays. Below the example is a chart for other SUPERFECTA plays ranging from $6 to $36. The only key is to key one horse on top. He can be our top choice or your favorite overlay using Our True Odds. Let's take a look at a race right off a recent Churchill Downs member report:

One of our favorite SUPERFECTA plays is to take our TOP pick over our next 3 picks for 2nd and 3rd and in the 4th slot we put our 2nd pick through our 7th
pick. Like in the race below we played the 8/7,9,13/7,9,13/2,3,4,6,7,9,13. As you can see it gives us 4 extra horses in the 4th slot of the bet. This is
play J) in the chart below the race example. Many times a longshot will finish 4th making the SUPERFECTA pay very well.

The aforementioned bet(8/7,9,13/7,9,13/2,3,4,6,7,9,13) only cost us $30
on a $1 base. The race finished 8-9-13-6.

Look at the BIG DIFFERENCE in the payoffs:

$1 Superfecta  8-9-13-6  $852.80                      SEE SUPERFECTA CHARTS BELOW

$1 Trifecta    8-9-13     $70.30

 13 STATE . (12/5)   
    This horse shows the best recent class figure which means it has run well in
    its last few races versus good company. Has the BEST TOTAL PACE rating, ML
    odds are better than 7/2 and that means a possible overlay situation exists
    here!. Ranks within the 5 point rule in power rating, ML odds are 8/1 or
    higher and that makes this thoroughbred a LIVE LONGSHOT today!!. Rated a
    major contender and could go off at OVERLAY odds!!!. Gets 5 lbs or more
    weight off from last start and that could give this horse a bit more bounce
    in its step. Within its last few starts this horse has matched or exceeded
    par for final time at today's class level and distance, a strong attribute.

    Trainer has frequently gotten OVERLAY mutuels on winners this year so check

    race and that made it tough for this horse to run its best race. Showed good
    speed from the start to the stretch in last start but faded late. Shows a
    pattern that indicates this horse might carry its speed further today, the
    SPEED & FADE ANGLE!
