Best Horse Racing Bets for Tuesday, January 26, 2021

| January 25, 2021 1:42 pm PDT

All three of the tracks I chose to review for Tuesday had something good to offer, although Parx Racing wins the brownie button for most underdogs and longshot moneymakers.

But that is not to say Delta Downs and Mahoning Valley Race Course didn’t bring something tasty to the picnic — I found plenty of underdogs as we as a couple of longshots at those tracks, as well.

That said, I will let you get on with the summary of my horse racing picks and predictions for Tuesday, January 26, 2021.

Good luck!

Delta Downs Picks for Tuesday

  • Race 3: Bluegrass Pharoah 7/5 (win)
  • Race 7: Why God 5/1 (win)
  • Race 8: Grillin 5/2 (win, if starts)
  • Race 8: Alluring Actor (win, otherwise)
  • Race 8: May Hour 15/1 (show)

I found myself agreeing with the morning line more often than not while reviewing the three top races for Tuesday. I did, however, like the third-favored horse in race 7 at 5/1, so that was nice.

And there’s an if-then wagering decision to be made in race 8, where if Grillin wins, you need to bet him to win, while if he doesn’t start, you’ll want to switch your allegiance to Alluring Actor. When it comes to your bankroll, you are permitted to be fickle.

And let’s not forget that 15/1 value show bet I uncovered in race 8.

Learn the facts behind the profitable predictions I made for Delta Downs richest races for Tuesday.

My Tuesday Picks for Mahoning Valley Race Course

  • Race 3: Mymonstersforreal 4/5 (win)
  • Race 4: Pulpit’s Purrfect 7/2 (win)
  • Race 4: I’m Feeling Lucky 10/1 (show)
  • Race 5: California Martini 4/1 (win)

Mahoning Valley Race Course looks a little bare, but that’s just because I found only one long-odds entry—in race 4—worthy of a value show bet.

The big news is that I found third-favored underdogs to back for races 4 and 5 (at 7/2 and 4/1, respectively), which makes my agreement with the morning line in race 3 easier to bear.

Tuesday’s Predictions for Parx Racing

  • Race 1: Don’t Recall 9/2 (win)
  • Race 8: Stabilize 5/1 (win)
  • Race 8: Baby Bam Bam 15/1 (show)
  • Race 9: Odd Gal 5/2 (win)
  • Race 9: Galileo’s Affair 20/1 (show)

Parx was the goldmine of tracks for Tuesday, with underdogs galore and a couple of solid long-odds show bets to keep our bankroll, um, rolling.

For instance, I found a third-favored prospect in race 1, a fourth-favored horse in race 8, and a third-favored entry in race 9.

And for my show tickets, I found a 15/1 prospect in race 8 and a 20/1 longshot well worth the risk in race 9. Great way to end the betting day.
