Todd has given us a great way to compare predictor's picks for their state and their game and that is the 'filters option'.  You can filter for your state and the game you play and it shows very clearly who are the ones to be watching.  For example, Bobo is red hot in IL Pick 3 right now and has been consistently, having the second straight this week with a 30 day profit ratio over 600% and which has been improving.  Use the filters to your advantage.  I checked out several other states and it was very apparent who the hot predictors were for that state. 

I would like to see those that post numbers in the forum also take the limited time required to post their picks on the prediction page so people can see how well (or not) they are doing.  You would be tremendously helping the people coming here looking for  numbers for their state to play.  It's all tabulated, in one easy spot for all to see and use.

Very good tool, Todd.

    I agree, Rick. It is a good tool.

      Yes, it is a good tool however one must realize that some posters post everyday for a particular state and other posters are only posting sometimes for a particular state. So where one person may have a high percentage of hits/wins over a given period. And then stopped posting for that state their percentage rate is unchanged. So I tend to go with the posters who continuously post everyday for our state and are chalking up hits. Even thought the intermittent posters have a better ratio of wins to amount of picks. It's sad that these good posters that were picking winners have stopped posting for all states. When in fact they were chalking up lots of wins. I know if they were still posting I would select some of there picks to play on several occasions.

        Also there is a limit of 10 numbers for the normal members and there are more than 10 states that have the pick 3 and pick 4 games.  I realize that space is a problem but just pointing out why some posters don't use it.  I have started to use it since the link was brought to my attention but forget to post for each day and all games.  It is a great tool and thank you Todd for this options.

          four4me,

          The easiest way to distinguish that are to look for the leaders in the highest prize ratio for both 30-day and lifetime for your game and your state whether they post all-states or not.  For example, I believe Bobo posts for all states (not sure), but he's killing IL and is a huge leader in prize ratio % for both periods of time.. 

          It would seem that when playing picks of those who are leaders on the prize ratio boards should be played straight and those who are high on the hit board, but not the prize ratio board should cover their bets with a box.

          Another thing I look at is how much capital risk (money) would it take to attain the profit involved.  Did it take 1000 picks or 100 picks for a similar profit %. ?  Which predictor would you be playing?

            wbp, you can post 10 picks for every single game on a given day, not 10 picks for all games combined.  Maybe this gives you some more picks that you didn't know you had?

            four4me, unfortunately I think some people stop posting all states because there is a very vocal minority that jumps all over people who post more picks than these people THINK they should.  That is why every time someone posts one of these remarks I jump all over them.  I believe that anyone should be able to post as many or as few picks as they like, and I will always defend anyone who wants to post the maximum number of picks to all states, if that's what they want to do.  It upsets me when people think that everyone should predict numbers the way they want them to.  Like no one can have a different opinion.

            Anyway, if someone had some good luck, and then stops posting, maybe try encouraging them to continue posting their picks.  Letting someone know that you're using their picks can be very uplifting.

                Thanks Todd that's why I said what I did. I think that no person has the right to tell anybody what to do either. Just because someone posts for all states. I post for all states because many days even before you created this neat tool I saw my numbers hit everywhere but in my town. So I figure why shouldn't someone possibly benefit from my leavens. The posters that stopped posting for all states know they were on to something and to have someone PM them and tell them what or how to post is really not cool. Maybe after a while they will continue to post again for all states. While this is still a new feature maybe trying different ways of posting is an option everybody should seek his/her own method. I know from time to time I feel strange posting for all states. When my primary goal is to post possible winners for my state. I also am enjoying the stats pages. Thanks again for making this possible and good fortune to all who benefit and create them.
