In the Show pool, even! Game 14 on Saturday night at Miami had
'em in Place AND Show.
Here's what goes through my mind:
Damn, there weren't even enough people there to cover all the teams.
What does this do to my average payoff calculations?
Of the two, the first issue is most ominous. As these things
occur more frequently in the results, it produces that sinking
feeling that attendance is dropping off. I remember watching it
get worse and worse at Milford. Quite a few at Ocala, and Newport
You might get clues from the published attendance and handle (if available), but that's getting harder to figure as the amount of off-fronton wagering increases. I doubt that the off-fronton bettors get into the Place and Show pools much.
Do you notice NOTIX in the results, and how does it grab you?
