A Note From Doc's Sports Staff
Our company opened for business back in 1971. We were only one of a small number of sports handicapping services in existence at that time, and most of those have now fallen by the wayside. When you have been in the sports handicapping industry for more than 40 years, you definitely see some major changes.
College Football Power Rankings: the Ferringo 15
How many professional handicappers do you know that have hit 60 percent of their college football picks each week over the past two years and, letís say, about 250 plays? And even if you did know of someone that managed to accomplish that feat, were they giving those picks out for FREE?
Week 1 NFL Odds: Taking a Closer Look at the Biggest Underdogs on Betting Board
The NFL can see some huge spreads on a weekly basis. Last year the Jacksonville Jaguars were a 27-point underdog against the Denver Broncos and a 19-point dog against the Seattle Seahawks (they went 1-1 ATS). Lines of that magnitude, however, are rare, and big underdogs tend to stay in the 10- to 14-point range.
Weekly Q&A with Docís Sports Expert Handicapper Raphael Esparza
Docís Sports: The new college football season kicks things off this week with a couple of huge showdowns on the slate. Starting with Thursdayís No. 21Texas A&M vs. No. 9 South Carolina matchup in the SEC, how do you see this game shaking out with the Gamecocks favored by double-digits with most of the Las Vegas books?
2014 SEC Football Predictions and Futures Odds Picks
The SEC conference has been the cream of the crop in college football for the last decade or so and I don't believe much will change this year. From top to bottom in the SEC there are some very good teams and we should see some high level football from all of them this year. The odds are quite spread out as to who will end up winning the conference title game in early December as this might not be Alabama's territory to rule anymore.
2014 Pac-12 Football Predictions and Futures Odds Picks
The Pac-12 will once again be one of the better all-around conferences in college football this year as it's the deepest it's been in years. Only three programs (Cal, Washington State, Colorado) are expected to be going through growing pains this year as all three are very big longshots to win the conference (+22500).
Five to Follow MLB Betting: Wednesday August 27, 2014 Opening Line Report
You really shouldn't have been backing the wretched Texas Rangers regardless, but now don't even think about it the rest of the season. Outfielder Shin-Soo Choo is being shut down for the season, and while he's been a disappointment, he's still was one of the team's best healthy players left. In addition, ace Yu Darvish also likely will be shelved.
2014 SEC Predictions and College Football Futures Odds
There exists the idea in college football that there is the SEC and then there is everyone else. The idea is that this conference is some kind of behemoth, playing at a level above and beyond the rest of the nation. Well, that idea is a media-driven falsehood. It is myth, like Southern Hospitality. And now that ESPN has a hefty financial stake in this myth, you can expect several more years of hype-fueled fellatio directed at the Southís most far-reaching social contribution of the last 30 years.
2014 ACC Predictions and College Football Futures Odds
Itís a new year but the same story for the ACC: parity or mediocrity? The conference does boast the defending BCS National Champion with Florida State. But they have gone just 4-13 in BCS bowl games and still have too many 7-6-caliber teams populating the league.
NCAA Football Predictions: Week 1 Opening Line Report and Picks
It feels like forever ago that we saw Florida State beat Auburn in the final BCS Championship Game -- and one of certainly one of the best national title games this century. Now the BCS is dead, and we are introduced to the four-team College Football Playoff. How will it work? No one seems to know other than the 13 members who will pick the national semifinalists similar to how the NCAA Tournament field is chosen.
College Football Betting: Best Games of First Week of NCAA Season
When the first week of the college football season finally rolls around, I am not picky about what I watch. I am so starved for the action of our greatest sport that I would watch absolutely anything. There are, though, obviously some games that are more significant and important than others.
Handicapping the St. Louis Rams after Sam Bradford Injury
I was high on Sam Bradford heading into this season. He and Jeff Fisher were looking like a good pairing once they got a chance to play together and get comfortable. He had some talent around him. Heís old enough and experienced enough to let his talent finally come to the forefront. It was going to be a good year.
Handicapping Bovadaís Prop for the NFLís Worst Team
If you were to tell me that at this point last year you knew that the Houston Texans were going to wind up with the worst record in the NFL then I would be forced to call you a liar. Heck, if after six weeks you thought it was going to be anyone other than Jacksonville then you are probably remembering wrong.
Handicapping Bovadaís Prop Bet for First NFL Coach Fired
Whenever things start to go badly for any team in an NFL season, one of the first things that fans call for is for the coach to be fired. Teams often listen ó about a fifth to a quarter of coaches are fired every year. Quite often, like last year, teams will get a jump on the race and fire a coach during the season ó as the Houston Texans did last year with Gary Kubiak.
College Football Handicapping: Under-the-Radar Quarterbacks with Betting Value
Weíve had two straight Heisman-winning quarterbacks who had never played a down in college football at this point in their award-winning season. With that unprecedented success, itís no wonder that people are more and more interested in spotting the next unexpected breakout star under center.
Handicapping Sportsbook NFL Season Special Props Odds with Betting Picks
When it comes to the NFL, I am an absolute sucker for records and the breaking of mythical barriers. It means little if a guy winds up with 2,000 yards receiving or 1,996 in real terms, but it means everything to the football geeks amongst us ó and if you are reading this article that probably means you.
Handicapping Sportsbook NFL Quarterback Special Props Odds
When we are looking at players in the NFL, we so often handicap how they match up in particular games against the players they will line up against. Itís a good handicapping exercise to look at a wider picture and to really consider how they are going to fare on a larger perspective. Itís kind of like bringing a fantasy football drafting perspective to handicapping. One way we can do that ó and hunt for profit at the same time ó is by looking at the QB special props that Sportsbook.ag has on offer this year.
NFL Comeback Player of the Year Odds, Picks and Predictions
There are two challenges I face when looking at betting on who will be the Comeback Player of the Year in the NFL. The first is that it is such a poorly-defined award. A guy can win it because he is coming back from a devastating injury, because he wasnít in the league the year before, or just because he had a lousy year the year before and bounced back strong.
NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year Odds, Picks and Predictions
When you are trying to handicap who will be named the Defensive Rookie of the Year in the NFL this year ó and profit on futures betting as a result ó you probably want to keep a very strong trend in mind. When Charles Woodson took home the award in 1998, he didnít know at the time that he would be the last defensive back to win the trophy.
Five to Follow MLB Betting: Tuesday August 26, 2014 Opening Line Report
The Boston Red Sox clearly have given up at this point as they were just swept at home by the Seattle Mariners and have now lost eight straight games. And you know what? Management probably hopes the team continues to lose. It means a better draft pick and more slot money to sign those draft picks. Plus, if you finish with one of the 10 worst records in the league you don't have to cough up your first-round pick if you sign a top-tier free agent.
MLB Handicapping: Betting Large Moneylines for Dominant Pitchers
Dominant pitching is a staple in Major League Baseball. Every season there are a handful of truly great pitchers that nearly guarantee their team a win each time they step on the mound. Those names change from year to year, and sometimes it may be a CC Sabathia, a Justin Verlander or a Clayton Kershaw, but the one thing they all have in common is that those pitchers can provide great betting value for baseball gamblers.
