Pick 5 type

When betting a pick 5, do you prefer the wager when it offers conso payments for picking 4 out of 5 (usually 25% of the pool, such as Keeneland & Gulfstream) or when it pays 100% of the pool to those with 5 of 5 (ie NYRA & California)?


I have a very strong feeling one way, was curious how others felt.

I saw this post late last night, had an immediate reaction, but decided to noodle on it.

I'll stick with my original gut reaction. Pay 5/5 only UNLESS no one went 5/5, then pay out to 4/5. I've had a few 4/5 payouts for Pick 5s at Gulfstream. They've never been enough to cover even a low-budget Pick 5 ticket. Correctly nailing a Pick 5, even a fairly chalky one, deserves to be rewarded.

Since i get 4 out of 5 on just about every pick 5 I play in thoroughbreds, to me it would be a lot better if they payed for 4 out of 5. That being said I think just paying 5 of 5 is the better way of doing it.

You didn't offer the choice of-- If no one hits, 100% is carried over.

I don't like these and is why I don't play the hi-5.

Carryover provisions are a different topic, and not what I was interested in here

Great question, don't know the right answer but would love to hear your argument to pick a side. If either a bomb or favorite you didn't like gets you, it's nice to cash your bet back on 4/5 but I also realize it dilutes the days you're 5/5 a lot. Not sure the math on that long-term which would solve it, but I can roll 4/5 over here and there for extra chances at the 5/5 once in a while.
