Eddie Wilson began his handicapping career with horse racing, picnicking from the infield at Santa Anita each Sunday afternoon with family and friends in the mid-1970's while attending junior high school in the San Gabriel Valley, minutes away from Santa Anita race track. Already with a heavy background in sports, he could often be seen carrying a Racing Form in his back pocket to classes and reading the "sheets" at lunch time. While wagering $2 show bets through his family, he graduated to win and place wagers and then dabbled in $5 exacta boxes while mentored by an old family friend. Two-dollar daily double plays were also a popular wager for him. "I guess you could say I was bitten by the bug at an early age," Wilson says. "My father and older brother fanned the flame too and we always had some sort of action each racing day, either through early bird or sneaking out to the track during the day to catch the nightcap. Had I put as much time and effort into my school work as I did reading the Racing Form, I may be on the Supreme Court bench now." Wilson got his start as a professional handicapper at the San Gabriel Valley Tribune in the late 1980s and continues his handicapping today with the SCNG newspaper group. A self-professed speed handicapper who also relies on trip and trouble notes, Wilson was the Santa Anita Fans Forum winner in 1991-1992, an annual contest that includes all public Handicappers.. His solid sports background got him into sports wagering and handicapping later in life and the balance of sports and horses only helps balance the bottom line.

Stats show that only 19% of self-advised bettors will win on any given weekend. That percentage drops throughout the course of the sports season. Many try repeatedly to win on their own terms but lose again and again. The only reliable method is to have the information we have which the general public simply doesn't have the time or resources to gather.
