I've turned a profit in the NFL 21 of 23 years by spending long hours
researching, watching and talking to sources that I've developed
having been a sportswriter for more than 20 years. In the end, it
comes down to my own gut feel. I've been passionate about the NFL
since I first started watching back in 1963 (the year the Bears won
the championship under George Halas beating Y.A. Tittle's Giants in
the championship game). I know the players. I understand what trends,
angles, statistics and history have meaning and what is just verbiage.
I go through every game beginning the previous week. It's important to
not only stay ahead, but also not to have your judgment completely
clouded by what just happened. Rarely is an NFL team as bad or as good
as it might have looked the week before. Sometimes this leads to an
early play where often I can get the best of the number before the
marketplace gets fully involved. I respect key numbers - stop signs as
I call them - but I am not intimidated by them. If all my research and
instincts put me on a side or total, I will play it unless the number
is too outrageous.
Unlike many professional handicappers, I use my real name. I'm not
afraid to put my real name to something. There are too many scammers
and fakes, who rely more on marketing and promotion than knowledge and
true handicapping skill. I put in the 60 plus hours a week necessary
to do the research and work. You'll be able to see that in my detailed
analysis that I have for every play I put out. I'm a fundamental style
handicapper basing much of my opinion on matchup analysis along with
situational elements and pertinent statistics. I don't prejudge games.
A team could be playing on the road a third consecutive week, but that
doesn't automatically disqualify them as a play.
I handicap all of the major American sports. I am 75-59-1 (56%) the
past two years in college football. This past season, I ranked No. 2
in hockey and No. 3 in the NBA as documented by Vegas Insider. I also
finished as the No. 2 baseball handicapper in 2017 as documented by
Bottom line is I put in the work, have the necessary knowledge,
experience and sources to consistently win - which I do. The proof is
in the record. Please join me and let's win together!
