Joe Gavazzi Oct 8, 2015  
If you have been following along since early August, I have written numerous articles regarding the importance of the running game, as a statistical indicator, to isolate ATS success. The 2 major areas that we focused on were the disparity in the opponents’ rushing yardage in a specific game, as well as the number of rushing attempts. In addition, we reviewed numbers regarding TO margin and the ...  read more
Turnovers Can Turn the Tide (SU and ATS)
Jim Feist Oct 5, 2015  
A few weeks ago a key early NFC East matchup took place on national TV between the Redskins and Giants, two teams with something to prove off poor campaigns. In the end, Washington had the edge in total yards 393-363, in rushing yards and held the Giants to just 4-of-12 on third down. A close game? A Redskins' win? Actually, the Giants led 18-6 after three and 32-14 late on the way to an ea ...  read more

Take 3 Simple Steps to Betting Success

As I noted in the Introduction, gamblers making straight bets must hit 53% winners just to make a profit. This in and of itself is hard enough for the average bettor -- but the task is made even more difficult when you vary your bet amounts on whims and hunches. ...  read more
Tony George : Value Teaser on Monday Night Football
Tony George Oct 5, 2015  
By Tony George Sometimes in gambling sports, it is what you DON'T Do that counts. Monday Night Football tonight offers little value in my opinion on the Las Vegas Line offered. Off a 9-0 Sweep the last 2 Sundays with Premium and teaser Plays and cashing both my free plays in the NFL over the past 2 weekends as well, I am in sync in the NFL.

Enough Already With This
Stephen Nover Oct 4, 2015  
I can't take it anymore. These Draft Kings and Fan Duels commercials are like locusts descending. They go on and on. Stop! Enough is enough. It's to the point where I'm turning the channel the second they come on, which seems to be during every break. And this is coming from someone who has played and loved fantasy football for 30 years. But these commercials are a real plague on the s ...  read more
10 Rules to follow when betting on Pro Football
Tony Stoffo Oct 2, 2015  
My favorite time of the year.

There's no time like pro football season at a sports book. Because each team plays only 16 regular-season contests, every game is an event. You can feel the buildup during the week, culminating on Sunday, when there are usually 15 games on tap, oftentimes as many as 11 "early games" kicking off at once, at 1 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

Arizona Cardinals Could Open 8-0
Stephen Nover Oct 1, 2015  
The Arizona Cardinals are unbeaten and leading the NFL in scoring at 42 points a game. Right now, I'd rank Carson Palmer as the No. 3 QB behind only Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady. I understand there's a certain bogus quality to the Cardinals since they've been fortunate enough to open against the Saints (Brees at less than 100 percent), Bears (Cutler hurt) and 49ers (Kaepernick with an all-time s ...  read more

The Worst NFL Coach
Stephen Nover Sep 28, 2015  
The first NFL coach to be fired prop is a popular topic. The usual suspects get bantered around - Jay Gruden, Mike Pettine and Lovie Smith. I'm not a fan of any of them. But the worst head coach in the NFL is in Miami: Joe Philbin. The Dolphins have and had more talent than the Redskins, Browns and Buccaneers. Miami ownership always seems to make big off-season splashes with huge free agen ...  read more
NFL Cold Starts and September Surprises
Jim Feist Sep 28, 2015  
by Jim Feist

So…are we all set for the Jets/Bengals AFC championship game in January? Followed by the Falcons/Cardinals NFC title tilt? That would be quite a surprise, wouldn’t it, with Atlanta off a 6-10 season and the Jets off a 4-12 train wreck in 2014. Both seasons got their coaching staffs fired.

However, last season is ancient history. And that's the thing about ...  read more

What has Chip Kelly Done?
Kevin Thomas Sep 24, 2015  
Are the Eagles in trouble? The Jets (2-0) are coming off a Monday night game and are favored by 3. Eagles were embarrassed at home for their opener. Pre-seaon games prove nothing. Getting ride of line men who play smash mouth football is a problem. Just like his college teams speed gets you so far. He also gave away his deep threat in D Jackson and let Maclin walk. Take the Jets on the shor ...  read more
Why You shouldn't Overreact Early in the Season
AC Dinero Sep 23, 2015  
One common error novice bettors make is overreacting to the first couple of games of the season. It’s human nature to only remember that last image, especially when it is a negative one. And if you got burnt by any of those teams, you’ve probably convinced yourself you are never taking them again. Teams are never as good as they looked the week before or as bad. Indianapolis, Philadelphia, and ...  read more
How does Brandon Marshall improve the Jets?
Tony Karpinski Sep 22, 2015  
The New York Jets traded their 5th round pick to grab 9 year veteran, Brandon Marshall off the Chicago Bears' hands. Marshall has had a much talked about and troublesome past of being a player that complained and carried on when it came down to where he was in the pecking order on the teams WRs. Marshall had played with the Broncos, Dolphins, and most recently, the Bears. In all of his stops, ...  read more

Week 2 NFL thoughts.
Sean Higgs Sep 22, 2015  
Just a couple tid-bits on last Week 2 NFL.

We opened with a wild one in KANSAS CITY as the CHIEFS literally, fumbled the game away to the DENVER BRONCOS. Peyton Manning did exactly what he has done against the AFC West since he arrived, beat them, moving his record to 19-1 SU. Alex Smith has a pair of red-zone INTs, and Jamaal Charles had a pair of costly fumbles. The real shocker was that t ...  read more

September Football: Upset City!
Jim Feist Sep 21, 2015  
by Jim Feist

There's a reason they play the games. Teams don't always play the way stats and power rankings suggest they are supposed to. That's often evident early in the pro and college football seasons because some teams are very different from year to year. In Week 1 of the NFL season, the money went on the Vikings Monday night, the young up and coming team under Mike Zimmer th ...  read more
College Football Injuries and Depth Charts
Jim Feist Sep 14, 2015  
by Jim Feist An area of college football handicapping dynamics that's important to understand early in the season is depth. This doesn't refer to how many star players a team has, but whether a team is stocked or thin with above-average players at a lot of positions. Large schools with a long tradition of winning football are usually heavy with depth.

Notre Dame took on a ret ...  read more
Is RGIII running out of time to prove he's a legit NFL QB
Mike Anthony Sep 14, 2015  
I enjoyed the game of Robert Griffin III when he first broke into the league in 2012, I had very high hopes for him, like the majority of fans out there. He passed well, and he ran incredibly well, he was a breath of fresh air, in a stuffy Washington atmosphere, who had the likes of Rex Grossman, Jason Campbell and Patrick Ramsey since 2002. Ideally, for Washington fans he shows at least something ...  read more
One Surprise Team Will Be Heading To the Playoffs in 2015
TJ Masterline Sep 13, 2015  
There is one team that I strongly believe will make a surprise visit to the playoffs this year. While they are returning thirteen starters, I really love their QB Justin Thomas Jr. He was 2nd team ACC. I also believe Paul Johnson is the most underrated coach in the FBS. Of course, I’m talking about Georgia Tech. While their schedule is not an easy one, drawing both Clemson and Florida St. in the ...  read more

NFL Preview 2015
Frank Jordan Sep 10, 2015  
Last year had a flurry of a finish in the Super Bowl coming down to the final minute. The 2015 season couldn’t come soon enough as there were so many issues in the offseason headlined by Tom Brady and deflate gate. In the end he got a four game suspension and it was overturned in court. So nothing came of it and now we have on the field games that count and we can focus on the games themselves to ...  read more

The best time of the sports calendar is here, the opening month of the pro football campaign!

AC's 2015 College Football Disappointments
AC Dinero Sep 7, 2015  
AC’s college football disappointments for 2015 Georgia Tech: The Yellow Jackets are coming off a big year where they surprised many and qualified for a New Year’s 6 bowl.

AC’s college football sleepers for 2015 North Carolina: The Tar Heels return 17 (10 7) starters to a team that quite frankly has underachieved the past few seasons. They’ve been sort of an enigma, and as a result, head coach Larry Fedora finds himself on the hot seat. Former Auburn head coach Gene Chizek was brought in to fix the defense, which has been the crux of the problem. There is tale ...  read more

Keys to becoming a Winner this Season
Brian Hay Sep 3, 2015  
Money Management This is without question the most important aspect of betting sports and probably the most over looked. The biggest key to proper money management is to be sure not to bet more than you can afford to lose. You must put aside a certain portion of your money for your sports betting bankroll. Winning money on sports is a marathon not a sprint. I recommend betting 3% of your bankrol ...  read more

UCLA names Josh Rosen starting quarterback

NFL Six Point Teaser
Brian Hay Aug 24, 2015  
In layman terms, a teaser is a parlay bet that uses modified point spreads. In football, the most common modification is six points. So let’s say this week there are two bets you like: Jets -7.5, Raiders +1.5. Rather than betting these straight or in a parlay, you could make a two team six point teaser bet of Jets -1.5, Raiders +7.5. To win the bet, you’ll need both teams to cover.

Baseball Has Been Quite, Incredibly Great to Me by Tony Stoffo
Tony Stoffo Aug 20, 2015  

Several Sportsbooks would rather close their doorways for the duration of the baseball period.

So how come you're not betting on baseball every single day? (An ...  read more

Philosophies on NFL Preseason Wagering
TJ Masterline Aug 17, 2015  
As of this morning, all 32 teams have now played at least one game in the preseason. Many of the trends that I’ve seen in years past will also be prevalent this year.

A large portion of the betting public will usually go on-their-own during the first month of the ...  read more

Dallas Cowboys Return to Mediocracy in 2015
Brian Hay Aug 10, 2015  
The Dallas Cowboys spent the last two decades as a average football team. In 2014 the Cowboys emerged as a Super Bowl contender.

I believe last season was accomplished with smoke and mirrors.

MLB BASBEALL - Give Me Some Relief!
Jim Feist Jul 1, 2015  
Starting pitchers in baseball get much of the attention thrown their way. The average starter is asked to go 6-7 innings, while aces are expected to give 7-8 quality innings. Many games are decided in the last three innings, however, making relief pitchers an extremely important, and often overlooked, element. Do you recall how bad the San Francisco Giants were in 2013?

Baseball: First Half Roundup

It's not a sprint, of course, but a marathon, where a strong balance of pitching, defense and offense carries the best teams into the postseason. Injuries, too, are key, as well as trades made before the July deadline. Teams h ...  read more

There are many ways to bet baseball from tracking hot streaks, to pitching matchups, to betting favorites. In this article I'd like to turn your attention to betting underdogs. The table below shows this seasons betting performances in the American League. If you blindly bet underdogs thus far you would be cashing in on 9 of the 15 teams. The most profitable being the Texas Rangers at 31-17 as ...  read more
NBA Finals MVP Offers Potential Value
TJ Masterline Jun 14, 2015  
I believe there is possibly some value in the NBA MVP race currently. Not since 1969 has a player from the losing team won the award. That was, of course, Jerry West for the LA Lakers, who lost to the Boston Celtics that year. That was the first year the award was given out. I believe the value is on LeBron James, currently at +200 below. If the Cavs win the series, which at this point appears muc ...  read more
Bankroll Management
Tony Corleone Jun 12, 2015  
One of the most common questions I get from my clients is "how much should I be betting per game"? The answer is usually different depending on each individual person. Good bankroll management is one of the biggest and most important factors when it comes to sports betting and making profits. However big or small your bankroll is, it should be set aside and kept separate from all others expenses ( ...  read more
NBA Finals: Warriors/Cavs Showdown
Jim Feist Jun 8, 2015  
by Jim Feist The NBA Finals continues this week moving from the West Coast to Cleveland for Games 3 and 4.

The Belmont Winner - Track or Jockey?
Ben Burns Jun 6, 2015  

It has been written many times about the grueling toll, attempting to win the Triple Crown, takes on a horse. But is it really the 3 races in such a short time, capped off by the long distance of the race at the Belmont, or is it the Jokey who ultimately decides who wins?

I would like to argue that much will depend on the split-second decisions made by American Pharoah's jockey, Vict ...  read more

Mississippi State Bulldogs 2015 Season Preview:

How to Measure the Success of a Handicapper
AC Dinero Mar 1, 2015  
One major challenge for sports bettors looking for handicappers is how can they determine if the capper is any good? Most bettors look at two things; winning percentage and units earned, i.e.; profit. Both of these are very important, but can be misleading on the surface. But what if a high winning percentage doesn't translate into profits, meaning what if a handicapper loses a disproportionate nu ...  read more
Jeff's Top 5 MLB Left-handed Starters age 27 or younger (2015 season)
Jeff Hochman Feb 28, 2015  
The elite left-handed starters have a big advantage just for the simple fact that most players see a lot more right-handed pitching. Also, batting practice is mostly thrown by righties. Look for teams that have not faced a Quality left-handed starter for some time ( five games or more) and you will have a nice winning investment. Here are my Top 5 left-handed starting pitchers age 27 or younger go ...  read more

Brandon Shively Feb 18, 2015

Is the line the most important factor in handicapping?
AC Dinero Feb 16, 2015  
Perhaps the most overlooked aspect of handicapping a game involves analyzing the line. It’s the first thing you see right after the matchups are announced. But many bettors leave it at that. Unless the line moves a lot, most bettors won’t consider it when making their selections. Some won’t even do that. They will just move on to the fundamental/situational analysis of the process. Perhaps th ...  read more

What Kevin Love gives LeBron James
Tony Karpinski Feb 12, 2015  
This season 4 time MVP LeBron James is getting to play alongside one of the best knock down shooters in the game, Kevin Love. A different kind of big man with some really interesting skills that far exceed Bosh in a number of ways, it's not too shabby of a trade off if you ask me.

KLove brought a lot to the table alongside LeBron, that Bosh didn't bring in Miami. Now, granted Bosh had to cha ...  read more

The most dominant dynasty in sports
Mike Anthony Feb 4, 2015  
Let's first have a short discussion of what I consider to be a dynasty. Wins, titles, era and even intangibles all come into affect when deciding what a dynasty is.

There obviously is the hard earned fact that the dominant teams gives everyone else in the league the drive to take down the giant.

Or they bring the hate from fans that they stand above other teams for a set period of ti ...  read more

How to incorporate recruiting into your college football handicapping
AC Dinero Feb 2, 2015  
Recruiting is the lifeblood of every college football program, similar to what the draft is for NFL teams. Signing day has become a major production, just as the NFL draft has. Recruiting takes up the majority of a college football coach’s time. How many times have you heard about bowl games (extending them) and the CFB eating up into recruiting time for coaches? All you have to do is ask thei ...  read more
Kyle Hunter's 3 Free Super Bowl Prop Bet Picks
Kyle Hunter Feb 1, 2015  
1. Tom Brady longest completion under 37.5 yards In his Super Bowl career, Tom Brady has 127 completions. Exactly one of them has gone for more than 37.5 yards. Only two of them have gone for more than 30 yards. It’s highly unlikely that Brady is able to pick up chunk yardage against the Seahawks defense, which is arguably the top tackling defense in the NFL. The Patriots throw a lot of quick pa ...  read more
Super Bowl XLIX - Déjà Vu Act XVII
Tony Acosta Jan 30, 2015  
The Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots have played 16 times before and are deadlocked at 8-8. This matchup will be without a doubt be the biggest and most meaningful of the 17. The Seahawks are the defending Super Bowl champions and are ironically looking to become the first back-to-back winners since these Patriots won two straight in 2003 and 2004.
