Who would know if they inflate the ML odds on their selections?

Last night in the first at Northfield,OK Geronimo smiled for the cameras at 56-1.The linemaker had him at 25-1 despite his going off at 2-1 the previous week in the same company.Sure,he did finish 8th but he went faster than did the come from behind winner.I don't care if Niatross was entered.Something is amiss here.

I don't understand your premise. If you thought the linemaker had made a mistake on the horse's oddsline then you should be grinning from ear to ear and knocking off the proverbial little old ladies in line to place your bet at 56-1.

Check out my thread for best bet at Woodbine for Monday. I gave out a horse which was 9-1 on the morning line and mentioned in the post that I was hoping for 2-1. The horse wired the field and won and paid $5.60.

Making an oddsline is not an exact science. Go easy on your accusations for the linemakers.

Here is a thread on morning lines. I suggest you read it.
