Best Horse Racing Bets for Friday, November 13, 2020

| November 12, 2020 3:21 pm PDT

Unlike the past few days, I found more profit possibilities for Friday’s races at the three tracks I chose to review: Aqueduct Racetrack, Churchill Downs, and Del Mar Racing.

From third-favored winners at Aqueduct and Churchill Downs, to a second-favored winner as well as an across the board 15/1 entry at Del Mar, I’d say I made some good track choices.

Read on for an overview of my tips, picks, and predictions for Friday, November 13, 2020.

Good luck!

Friday’s Picks and Predictions for Aqueduct Racetrack

  • Race 1: Amalfi Princess 7/2 (win)
  • Race 7: Adare 9/5 (win)
  • Race 7: War Tocsin 10/1 (show)
  • Race 8: Backsideofthemoon 2/1 (win, if starts)
  • Race 8: Value Engineering 3/1 (win, otherwise)
  • Race 8: Patriot Drive 30/1 (show)

I started off with a third-favored pick for race 1, then proceeded to nod my head in time with the morning line’s picks in races 7 and 8. Of course, race 8 is an if-then situation, with the win bet decided by which of two horses actually winds up in the race.

After that, I was happy to find an easy 30/1 longshot value bet in race 8, as well.

My Friday Picks for Churchill Downs

  • Race 6: Dance Rhythms 3/1 (win)
  • Race 9: Ramsay Solution 3/1 (win, if starts)
  • Race 9: Spirit Animal 3/1 (win, otherwise)
  • Race 9: Jareth 30/1 (show, if starts)
  • Race 10: Rockstar Ro 9/2 (win)

I wound up on the morning line’s side in races 6 and 9, but went off the reservation with a third-favored pick for race 10.

Race 9 was a repeat of Thursday’s “whatever horse Tyler Gaffalione rides” pick for the win. If he rides the also-eligible Ramsay Solution, bet him to win. If he’s aboard Spirit Animal — well, I think you know what to do.

Del Mar Racing Predictions for Friday

  • Race 1: Gator Shining 9/5 (win)
  • Race 3: Slew South 7/2 (win)
  • Race 7: Cali Caliente 3/1 (win)
  • Race 7: Tartini 15/1 (show/across the board)

Del Mar yielded the smallest number of underdogs and show wagers, but just barely. I found a second-favored winner in race 3, but races 1 and 7 were all about the morning line’s faves.

And I was pleased in race 7 to find not only an entry worth a show bet, but also worth an across the board wager.
