    Only joking, it means Next Best - tipster gives his nap of the day and this is his next best tip. :)

    Nap is an abbreviation of Napoleon.

    I've read a few different explanations as to why this is used for your best bet. One stems from a card game and one from coinage apparently.

    Yep, comes from a card game in which your best hand was known as a NAP hand. :)

    NB is from the latin 'nota bene', which means 'next best'.

    Its an acronym for a eunuch , meaning ®no balls®

    By the way Borealis - your nearly right....but note bene translated from the latin is note well .......not next best
