Guy’s first off I would like to say the podcasts are fun and I will get better in time doing them. Main thing I wanted to do on the podcast was to recap plays, talk some Handicapping & Sports Betting with an audience that is into the same things that we are into and that’s winning money betting on sports. The past 3 podcast reports have covered some of the angles or systems that are simple ways in trying to find an edge in handicapping MLB, however we all know it’s really not that simple. I really never get into the write ups that some handicappers use in with their selections, reason is – first off I do not have the time to do the write-up’s, If the games win – the write-up’s makes the handicapper sound much smarter than he actually is, if the play losses then the write ups makes the handicapper look dumber than he actually is. A write up is also a basic way to promote a handicappers selections and we do not just sell 1 pick at a time and in other words the write ups are useless and time-consuming and just a written opinion by the sports services. But the podcast allows me to give out tips on the overall aspect of handicapping and when Football gets here the stats, trends and facts get real important and I will be looking forward to communicating with my clients and other guys who enjoy this thing we do – I could talk about the ups and downs of handicapping and sports betting 24/7.
I mentioned football and it will not be long till the NFL pre season starts. Pre-Season NFL is a way to make money if you know what to look for. Many times the info on QB rotations do not come out till late in the week and NFL has the Pre-Season broke down into a 5 week period as you have the Hall of Fame Game considered the (HOF Week) and not officially a part of Week 1 pre-season. Most of the times I remember the two teams that play in Canton in the HOF game – 1 team usually plays in week 1 as well. Many consider the team that plays the HOF game and also in week 1 to have an advantage over the team that is playing its first game in the official week 1 of the pre-season. But you have to factor in many other options and not just automatically pencil in the HOF participant as the point-spread winner just because they are actually in-game 2 vs. a team playing its first game. The NFL likes to spread these games out by starting on Thursday and playing a few games all weekend (Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday) and of course a Monday Night Football Game (MNF). See the announcers have to get practice in too – it’s not just the players it is the coaches, Refs, TV personal and much more that use the 5 weeks to get ready for America’s top watched sport.
Pre-Season NFL Handicapping has to be researched since the TV coverage is at a minimum compared to the regular season. You may catch a few games live on the NFL network, some regional games and the MNF game, however many of the games you may not even see a highlight on ESPN’s Sports Center. Most lines are set at -3 and many totals are 35 points or under to begin with. You have to know the coaches tendencies and there are several NFL coaches that have pre-season records that prove that they try to win the games. There are also many coaches that have records that show the could care less and they are there for the live scrimmage/practice. Local newspapers usually cover the teams (Local teams) more often that national publications of internet websites do – so it is key to see who and how long the starters will be playing, also important to see what rookies are using the games to build confidence and to get out the butterflies as to the players (most of them) a game is still a game and the younger players seem to want to win these Pre-Season games just like they did in college. Last year when I first saw the pre – season schedule I circled the Carolina Panthers as a must bet in Game 1! I knew Cam Newton was a great athlete that loved to win and I knew Carolina was coming into the season as a very disappointed team that needed a WIN and just they would love to win any game even a pre-season game. I also factored in the Panthers new Head Coach Ron Rivera and the trends show that Rookie Head Coaches come into these games with more to prove and many know and understand that Wins in the NFL are hard to come by and really try to win these games. Also the game was being played in Carolina and that added more of an edge than any other game I saw the entire pre-season when you added them all together and it was an easy cover for the Carolina Panthers and I’m sure Cam sold a lot of jerseys that night and the home crowd took something home with them that kept them excited th entire year and it was all started by that single pre-season win and Carolina did very well with the Rookie HC and QB. So you just have to look deep and find the edges needed to come up with the winners.
Several of the veteran Head Coaches really are not pumped up for the Win so to speak – but may want to see his Running Backs or take a longer look at the #2 and #3 Quarter Backs a little longer than other teams. Remember the Buffalo Bills HC back when they went to all those Super Bowls – Marv Levy? Great game day coach won a lot of games regular season and playoffs – but had one of the worse pre-season records that I can remember. What about a coach like Bill Belicheck on the New England Patriots? If I did not know the answer I would say he would be under the same classification as Marv Levy was. But not so fast my friend, take a closer look at some New England Patriots pre-season scores and you will see that he likes to win as a game is a game to him. So the Handicapping changes a little bit – but just like guy’s that make wagers on Soccer, Tennis, NASCAR, Cricket and Golf – you have to find a edge to have an advantage or a better than 50% chance to win any type of Sports Bet.
If the Pre-Season is something you have wagered on before and the end result had you asking Why did I bet this crap? Then maybe contact me this year and let me do the work for you as I look at it as a very nice money-making opportunity.
Seems each week I get 1 to 5 emails sometimes more asking about early bird specials for the entire NCAA – NFL football season. I had an idea and a price in mind and may have already quoted a few of you the prices. I have many different ideas in the last few weeks and I am leaning strong to provide all sports including NCAA & NLF football as well as the Bowl Season and NFL Playoffs and Super Bowl a part of the current daily combo package that ReeceRoberts and myself are doing right now in the MLB and NBA Finals. I feel it is an unmatched package and a package all sports bettors can afford and can profit from. So what I am saying if you are a current Combo Club Member – just keep sending the $84 every 31 days and carry the package all the way 365 days a year! It just makes sense to do that as it will save you a lot of money compared to what my past football prices have been.
If I was you and was considering the Underground Sports Connection for the upcoming football season – I would start now and take advantage of the MLB winners that WILL be coming and carry the 31 day periods month after month and do not thank me – but thank yourself for doing so. Only $2.70 per day and nothing extra ever to purchase!
Here are some links that will keep you all informed on the plays daily and other tips and FREE stuff that me or Reece will be providing in the upcoming weeks and months:
