NFL Hall of Fame Inductees
Stephen Nover Feb 7, 2016  
Now that Brett Favre is in the Hall of Fame can he still come back to play? Hey, rumors had the Rams interested in Peyton Manning. Favre still has his fastball unlike Manning. Favre joins Jim Brown and the late Wilt Chamberlain has the only retired all-time greats who I thought still could play many years after they left the game. I don't have a major problem with any of this year's NFL H ...  read more
 
Sean Higgs' Super Bowl 50 Props
Sean Higgs Feb 3, 2016  
These Props were taken from Sportsbook.AG. Most places have the same up. Maybe a dime or so difference on the take back.

Manning Over .5 Rush Yards +160

I have to say, this is by far my favorite prop and that is why I am actually giving you a write-up on it. All I see in my head is Manning doing what Elway did. Diving for the end zone. Now. It can be a 3rd and 6 in the first quarter. I ...  read more

 
BETTING PROPS FOR THE SUPERBOWL
Kevin Thomas Feb 1, 2016  
Yes my kids always are saying TAILS never fails. Well I dropped 100$ on HEADS. The best value is Cam Newton, not MVP, no real value there. The BIG props for Cam are on the fact that he will score a rushing TD. I found +200 for that solid lock. Cam has 10 rushing TD's and in BIG games when 200 million people will be watching you can bet he calls his own number. The other intriguing bet i ...  read more
 
Super Bowl 50 Prop Bets
Chase Diamond Feb 1, 2016  
I love to bet on Two props in the Super Bowl I know there are guys out there who bet everything down to the coin toss. The first thing I love to look at is the MVP prop. Now there is no money to bet the obvious MVP Cam Newton at -130 there is no money to be made. Personally and I know it's rare but Luke Kuechly has tremendous value at +1400 it is not out of the range of the range of chance that th ...  read more

AC's 2016 Super Bowl Prop Bets
AC Dinero Jan 27, 2016  
The Super Bowl is the single most bet sporting event in the world. It’s not just the game or totals, but every prop bet you can think of. Some of the most popular ones are the over/under on the National Anthem, the coin toss, whether someone cries, will there be a safety, who will score the first TD, and totals on individual player yardage. Pertaining to the game, most of the prop bets are ...  read more
 
NFL All Star Games Pro or Con
RJ Robbins Jan 25, 2016  
Is it time to get rid of the NFL Pro Bowl? Voting has turned into a popularity contest. You have 2 X-NFL players choosing up teams. Was moving the game the week before the Super Bowl a mistake? The game itself has turned into a gloried 'touch pass' game. The players really don't want to be there, mainly due to the chance of an injury. If they are on the Super Bowl teams they d ...  read more

2016 Super Bowl Predictions
Doc's Sports Jan 18, 2016  
by Doc's Sports - 1/18/2016 It sure hasn't been a year for long shot bettors or value seekers. The four lowest-priced teams in the Super Bowl futures market last week all won their games.

Packers Need New Leadership
Stephen Nover Jan 17, 2016  
Not too many quarterbacks are capable of winning a Super Bowl without a dominant defense. Aaron Rodgers is. Yet, for the sixth time in seven years, the Packers aren't going to the Super Bowl. Only once during this span have the Packers even won two playoff games in a season - the year they did win the Super Bowl, 2010. Yes, luck is involved. So is superior coaching and aggressive moves by the f ...  read more
 
College Basketball's Home Court Dynamics
Jim Feist Jan 12, 2016  
by Jim Feist

All basketball are not created equal! At least that's the impression you get when examining how teams play at home compared to on the road. A few years ago, Michigan State outscored teams by a 73-58 average at home, but on the road the Spartans were outscored by a 69-65 count. The same was true for Minnesota: The Gophers average score at home was 81-67, but on the road ...  read more

NBA Trends: Fading Tired Home Teams
World Wide Sports Jan 7, 2016  
Posted by World Wide Sports.

One of the more common betting strategies discussed by NBA bettors involves the role of fatigue — specifically the impact of playing in back-to-back games. Many bettors believe that oddsmakers overvalue the significance of playing on consecutive nights, while others claim that back-to-back games are only detrimental to a team if they’re playing on the road d ...  read more
 
Seahawks-Vikings Weather
Stephen Nover Jan 7, 2016  
I remember the great Minnesota Vikings teams of Bud Grant with their "Purple People Eaters" defense. The Vikings played their games outdoors back then. I can still clearly recall bruising fullback Bill Brown with his crewcut and short sleeves in zero degree weather. The Vikings are back playing outdoors, at least temporarily, and this adds a serious element of randomness to their Sunday aftern ...  read more

Who was the most disappointing NFL team in 2015
Tony Karpinski Jan 5, 2016  
For many teams, expectations of the upcoming season are based on preseason projections.

AC Dinero Jan 5, 2016  
NFL Playoff Analysis Here is a synopsis of each team in the 2016 NFL Playoffs AFC 1) Denver: The Broncos certainly have the defense to win the super bowl.

Could NFL be dead in 10 years?
Stephen Nover Jan 5, 2016  
In 10 years - perhaps less - professional football will be out of business as we know it today. Those are scary and mind-boggling words.

He cites four main reasons for having these views. They are: Concussions: Co ...  read more

Dead Man Walking and Talking
Stephen Nover Dec 17, 2015  
My least favorite football coaches are dull, unimaginative. ultra-conservative bores. In other words, guys like Cleveland's Mike Pettine. There are reasons why Pettine is a goner when the NFL regular season closes in three weeks. It's not just the Browns losing 15 of their last 18 games. Pettine just isn't very sharp. The Browns are the biggest underdogs on this week's NFL card at plus ...  read more
 
How to Handicap a College Football Bowl Game
AC Dinero Dec 17, 2015  
One of the questions I get at this time of year is what is the difference between handicapping a bowl game versus a regular season game? And it is a good question because there are differences. The top one is, without question, motivation. The first think I look for when looking at the bowls is who is in a game they don’t want to be and and who is. At least a quarter of the games will fit into ...  read more

Tips for a Winning Bowl Season

What Makes a Good Organization
AC Dinero Dec 8, 2015  
I recently read Bill Polian’s book “The Game Plan” and got to thinking: What makes a good organization and how can that info help us handicappers? The main thing I got from the book was leadership and how running a football organization isn’t all that different from running a corporation. Both need an idea to promote and a vision of what it will look like when it’s finished. Henry Ford’s idea ...  read more

Whats the deal with Andy Dalton
Tony Karpinski Nov 17, 2015  
Andy Dalton in his past 5 seasons, has had the tendency to make dumb plays. Let's be brutally honest. His confidence lacked at times, and he was easily shaken out of any rhythm. Dalton has to take it one game at a time. Not get ahead of himself, just let the game come to him. Dalton is doing his job, and doing it very well. And for Cincinnati, and the fans, it's very cool.

Football Parity

For years, pro football has been the sports leader when it comes to parity. Pete Rozelle was credited with, "On any given Sunday any team can beat another."

The Tennessee Titans opened the season at Tampa Bay as a dog, won 42-14, then kept on losing into November.

MID TERM EXAM

When it comes to handicapping there is no exact science. One factor you can't measure is 'turnovers'!

(Essentially, the team on the power play just adds another player.) If a second penalty is taken, the teams will play 5-on-3. If a penalt ...  read more

Does LaMarcus Aldridge immediately make the Spurs the favorites again in the Western Conference
Tony Karpinski Nov 1, 2015  
LaMarcus Aldridge signed a 4-year, $80 million contract with the option after the 3rd year, with the Spurs.

So what do you prefer: offense or defense? Most casual bettors examining football like offense, which is why Monday night football games often take more action on the over.

Should You Buy the Hook?
AC Dinero Oct 19, 2015  
If you’ve ever placed a bet with a sports book, one of the options you are asked is “do you want to buy the hook”? The hook is the half point. If the spread is 3.5, they you have the option to buy it down to 3. The most common time bettors will buy the hook is on the key lines of 3 and 7. The question I would ask myself is “why would Vegas offer me this”? I look at it the same way I do teasers ...  read more
 
How does Brandon Marshall improve the Jets
Tony Karpinski Oct 14, 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
 
Which NFL team is dealing with the most QB trouble
Tony Karpinski Oct 14, 2015  
There have been a handful of potential season destroying injuries to some of the starting QBs in the NFL. The ones I will delve into here, are the ones that are certainly going to have their challenges laid out ahead of them on a weekly basis. Dealing with an injury to your starting QB is a situation no team wants to ever be put in. But these teams have no other options due to unfortunate c ...  read more
 
How far have the Seattle Seahawks fallen
Tony Karpinski Oct 14, 2015  
The Seahawks offense has to find a way to move the ball with consistency. The play calling has been complacent and poor. They seem to be running run plays that don't seem to really have any significant value on the field. They have also allowed teams to find opportunities to come back in their games.

This Seahawks team seems to be showing their true colors in the end of games. In the 4th ...  read more

 
College Football Super D
Joe Gavazzi Oct 14, 2015  
We have played 6 weeks of the 2015 CFB season with many squads having already completed 50% of their regular season schedule. With teams now well-entrenched into the conference season, it is time to take a look at the nation’s best defenses. In this era of high-tech offenses, most notably exhibited in the Big 12 and PAC 12, it is still important to pay respect to the old adage that “defense wins ...  read more
 
The Value of NFL Run Defense
Jim Feist Oct 12, 2015  
Feist Facts: Oct. 12, 2015 The Value of NFL Run Defense by Jim Feist Like a giant leak on a sinking ship, one of the first signs of a poor pro football team is weak run defense. Stopping the run is essential to building a championship team. The Top 9 teams at stopping the run last season? Lions, Broncos, Seahawks, Ravens, Jets, Steelers, 49ers, Cowboys and Patriots.

THE NFL AT THE QUARTER POLL … A REVIEW OF OUR INDICATORS
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
 
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.

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

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.

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

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

There's a reason they play the games. Teams don't always play the way stats and power rankings suggest they are supposed to.

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
 
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.

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

Keys to becoming a Winner this Season

NFL Six Point Teaser

In layman terms, a teaser is a parlay bet that uses modified point spreads. In football, the most common modification is six points.

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.

Akron Zips Preview
Mike Anthony Jul 6, 2015  
Akron Zips

2014 Results: 5-7 SU; 3-9 ATS; T-4th MAC East Division

Since playing in its first ever bowl game in 2005, Akron has suffered through nine straight losing seasons. Three consecutive 1-11 seasons from 2009-2011 were tough to swallow but last year arguably trumped those. A win in the season finale against then 1-9 Kent St. would have made the Zips bowl eligible but instead, th ...  read more

 
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? The defending cha ...  read more
 
Baseball: First Half Roundup
Jim Feist Jun 30, 2015  
by Jim Feist 162 games is a long baseball season. Every year teams sprint out of the gate in April and May with October dreams, only to come back to the pack by July. 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
 
NBA Odds to win 2016 NBA Championship
Tony George Jun 23, 2015  
by Tony George One has to think a healthy Cavs team with Irving and Love back in the fold, perhaps a free agent acquisition or two, and a decent draft pick would create enough depth and talent on the floor to compliment James and put them on the next level. I do agree with oddsmakers that Cleveland should be, and currently are, the odds on favorite to win an NBA Title next season. ...  read more
 
Baseball Betting - Favorites vs Dogs - Who to bet this season
Tony Acosta Jun 20, 2015  
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. Game 5 will be played at Golden State, which is just the second time since 1984 that the league has gone back to the 2-2-1-1-1 format for the Finals. Last year it didn’t make a difference, as Miami split the first two at San Antonio, then the Spurs torched the Heat in South Beach, winning ...  read more
 
The Atlanta Braves Make Over
Bill O'Brien Jun 7, 2015  
The Atlanta Braves are two years from opening a new stadium just outside the Atlanta city limits in beautiful Cobb County. It was obvious with a new GM at the helm, the time was now to cut payroll expense while retooling the farm system getting the Atlanta Braves back to their blue print form of strong pitching with situational hitting. The Atlanta formula of young pitching talent has had proven ...  read more
 
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

NBA Finals Preview
Frank Jordan Jun 3, 2015  
This is a popular pick when the season and post season began as it is a matchup of number one seed from the West Golden State Warriors and the number two seed in the East Cleveland Cavalier. Each team had their toughest test and biggest competition from their second round series. Cleveland swept through Boston in the opening series and Atlanta in the Conference finals, but in the semifinals the Ca ...  read more

Mississippi State Bulldogs 2015 Season Preview:
Brandon Shively Jun 2, 2015  
The Bulldogs are coming off their best season under HC Dan Mullen and I don't expect them to get near the 10 wins they had last season. Mississippi State only returns 9 starters this season. They only return 2 on the O-Line and 1 on the D-Line. They lose Josh Robinson to the NFL draft and I expect Dak Prescott to struggle as he will not have as much surrounding talent or time in the pocket behind ...  read more
 
Stoffo's 15*MLB Game of the Month Atlanta Braves vs. Arizona Diamondbacks (MLB) - 9:40 PM EDT
Tony Stoffo Jun 1, 2015  
The Atlanta Braves have split their last 10 games. The Braves offensive production has finally kicked in having scored 17 runs in their last three games. Freddie Freeman leads Atlanta with 55 hits and 26 RBI while Andrelton Simmons and Cameron Maybin have combined for 42 RBI. Atlanta has split their last eight road games. Alex Wood gets the ball, and he’s 3-2 with a 3.50 ERA and 38 strikeouts this ...  read more
 
NBA Finals Fever!
Jim Feist Jun 1, 2015  
by Jim Feist The last two years a pair of veteran teams met in the NBA Finals, with Miami winning its second straight title in seven games against the Spurs and then San Antonio thrashing the Heat a year ago. But the winds of change have blown, with LeBron bolting Miami for his hometown and the Spurs losing in the first round in seven games to the LA Clippers. Now the Golden State Warriors ...  read more

Aim For Your Target Numbers

Believe it or not, virtually all bettors are destined to lose before they even lay their bets -- because they make the mistake of spending 90% of their time deciding which teams to bet on and just 10% on how to bet them.

Boston Red Sox vs. Texas Rangers (MLB) - 8:05 PM EDT Thursday, May 28, 2015
Tony Stoffo May 28, 2015  
Boston heads into this contest with a 21-26 record, including 11-14 on the road. Eduardo Rodriguez gets the ball to make his major league debut. Rodriguez was 29-30 with a 3.23 ERA and 462 strikeouts in his career in the minors. The Red Sox are in dire need of a win after losing six of their last eight games and four straight road games. Dustin Pedroia leads Boston with 53 hits and 21 RBI while Mo ...  read more

Michigan Wolverines 2015 Football Preview:
Brandon Shively May 27, 2015  
I expect much bigger and better things from the Wolverines in 2015 under new HC Jim Harbaugh. The Wolverines return 17 starters this season with most of their offensive line intact. The defense looks to be stout as well with what I will project as a Top 10 secondary in the nation. Harbaugh was known for his great special teams when at Stanford and also with the 49ers and I think that he gets the W ...  read more

How To Handle The Houston Astros
Mike Lundin May 26, 2015  

Who would have thought we would find the Houston Astros sitting top of the AL West, with the Oakland Athletics and Seattle Mariners sitting bottom-two in the division coming into the season? While Oakland and Seattle both clearly have been under-performing, I think it's just as obvious that Houston has over-performed.

With the second worst batting average in the major leagues (.233) ...  read more
