"Hot Pick" is a phrase coined by a genius to exemplify the act of making a decision that is downright spectacular. This phrase originated from sports betting where the executor of the hot pick made a successful bet usually against the odds. For example during the Super Bowl XLIV between the Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints, the heavily favored Colts gave up -6 pts. A hot pick during this particular game was picking the Saints to win outright without any spread.
"Hot Pick" or the act of "Hot Picking" is loosely used in describing picking good restaurants to eat at, seeing beautiful girls, making good decisions in life, finances, and/or friendships.
