That is absolutely not a commandment, nor is the one about nor tailing people blindly.
If someone is transparent with their record, it shows winning over a large sample size, they have good money management skills and are an expert in their sport then why would I not tail them when I do not have the stated skills to their levels?
And if you have a pick which you like you should NOT come on looking for evidence which supports the pick because there is always evidence for both sides and you are already biased. You should come on doing the opposite; look for reasons why NOT to play it. Only if you CAN'T find this evidence should you play the pick. Finding support for a pick you already like whilst ignoring stats to the contrary is not the way to make money
