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.

Free Expert NFL Picks: Baltimore Ravens at Indianapolis Colts Odds and Predictions
Certainly one of the best matchups of Week 5 in the NFL is this game between the Ravens and Colts, and I could easily see these two playing again this winter. I don't expect Baltimore to beat out Cincinnati for the AFC North title but think the Ravens will earn a wild-card spot. Indianapolis trails Houston by a game for the AFC South lead, but it's just a matter of time before the Colts take control of that division.
NFL Totals Betting: Week 5 Over and Under Predictions
Last week in the NFL was a great time to cash in on the total line, with 10 of the 13 games going “over” BetOnline’s closing betting odds. I capitalized on the over in two of my three picks to run this year’s overall record to 7-5. This is my fourth straight season that I will be releasing my top three weekly picks on the NFL “over/under” betting lines for Doc’s Sports.
NCAA Football Picks and American Athletic Conference Week 6 Betting Report
Cincinnati’s 50-28 loss to Ohio State as a 15.5-point road underdog this past Saturday dropped my record to 3-2 in my top weekly picks in the AAC, but I am already hard at work uncovering another solid play for this week’s games. The top team in the conference this season, East Carolina, is back in action and poised to possibly fit the bill.
College Football Mid-Major Betting Report: Akron Zips Week 6
It’s time for Week 5 of the college football mid-major betting report. This is the fourth year Doc’s Sports has offered this report. What’s the goal of this article? The goal is to try to show bettors that specialization is a profitable betting strategy. It’s a strategy many of the best bettors in the world use. Since there are so many teams in college football, specialization is particularly relevant in this area.
NFL Teasers Betting: Best Basic Strategy Options for Week 5
Each week Doc’s Sports follows basic strategy teasers and provides analysis on which of the bets hold the most value for bettors to wager on. For Week 5 of NFL action there are three basic strategy teasers on the board, two of which involve Philadelphia and Detroit being teased down to less than three points and the Chicago Bears being teased up to over eight points.
MLB Playoffs Betting: Thursday, Oct. 2, 2014, Opening Line Report
It's our first day with two postseason games as the American League steals the spotlight Thursday with Game 1 of the ALDS between Detroit and Baltimore at Camden Yards and the wild-card winning Kansas City Royals at the top-seeded Los Angeles Angels. The Tigers are the only team in the LDS, including National League, that is a series favorite yet a higher seed -- so without having home-field advantage in the best-of-five.
Free College Football Pick for Saturday: Arizona State vs. USC
The Pac-12 should be a very entertaining conference to watch over the next two months as they've got some very talented teams throughout the conference and we will see some upsets across the board. Arizona State is looking to pull off that feat a week after getting shelled at home by L.A's (UCLA) other team 62-27. The Sun Devils are in L.A this week as double-digit road dogs against USC as the Trojans aim to remain perfect in Pac-12 play.
2014 Philadelphia 76ers Predictions and NBA Futures Odds
The Philadelphia 76ers have taken an interesting approach toward their rebuilding process over the last few years, which involves sitting players and allegedly openly losing in order to stockpile assets to either trade later or help build a contender in the future. Philadelphia grabbed Joel Embiid, the expected franchise-changing center, in this summer’s draft with the overall third pick because a foot injury that will sideline the former Kansas Jayhawk for the entire 2014-15 NBA season scared Cleveland and Milwaukee, the teams with the first two picks, respectively, away.
2014 New Jersey Devils Predictions and NHL Futures Odds
Like watching old dudes play hockey? Then this is the team for you. Jaromir Jagr, who will be 43 before the season ends, is the senior member of the squad, but at least a dozen potential roster members are in their 30s. In fact, for the most part this roster is either too old or too young — not an ideal mix. The good news at least is that some of the old guys still have some game, and some of the young guys are really talented.
2014 Nashville Predators Predictions and NHL Futures Odds
Last year the Nashville Predators weren’t likely to be any good even if everything went their way. Their only real hope of success was if Pekka Rinne, a truly elite goalie, could get hot enough to keep the team at least somewhat on track. But then disaster struck. Three weeks into the season Rinne was hurt and lost until March. When he returned he wasn’t any good, either.
Expert NFL Betting Picks: Weekly NFC East Predictions Week 5
I was very fortunate to book last week’s Eagles game against San Francisco early to lock in a favorable 5.5-point spread. Philadelphia lost 26-21, with most of the sportsbooks’ betting odds closing below five points to swing things in favor of the 49ers. That is why it is important to watch line movements and shop for the best odds. This is why I am off to a perfect 4-0 start with my weekly NFC East picks for Doc’s Sports.
NFL Survivor Pool Picks and Expert Advice: Week 5
Thank goodness I went with my gut in Week 4 of the NFL season in choosing a Lock of the Week in the Survivor Pool. I originally decided pretty quickly that I wanted Indianapolis at home against Tennessee. But then I started questioning that call if by chance the Titans' injured Jake Locker was going to start. So I looked long and hard at Pittsburgh against visiting Tampa Bay, and of course the Bucs pulled the stunning upset.
Free Expert NCAA Football Picks: Texas A&M Aggies at Mississippi State Bulldogs Odds
It’s a strange time in college football indeed when Mississippi State is ranked in the Top 15 and hosting a Top-10, very high-profile squad, yet it is only the second biggest game being played in the state of Mississippi that afternoon. A proud, football-loving state that has gone through some low times is now, for one weekend at least, the epicenter of college football.
NFL Football Predictions: Week 5 Opening Line Report and Picks
I know the NFL loves parity and that it presumably gives every team -- other than Jacksonville and Oakland, clearly -- some hope for the playoffs. Did you know that 30 of the 32 teams, other than those two clubs just mentioned, have at least one win? That's tied for the most through four weeks in a season since 2002 realignment.
Free Expert NCAA Football Picks: Alabama Crimson Tide at Ole Miss Rebels Odds
The big time will be making a relatively rare appearance in Oxford, MS, this weekend as the Ole Miss Rebels play the biggest game they have played in far too long against Alabama. Hugh Freeze pulled in an impossibly-good recruiting class two years ago, and as those players mature and the momentum of that success builds the results are showing up on the field. Suddenly — at least through four games — a team that was very easy to forget is nationally-relevant. With a win here at home they could really launch themselves into the big time.
Free Expert NCAA Football Picks: Arizona Wildcats at Oregon Ducks Odds
We have a much more compelling matchup awaiting us for Arizona at Oregon than you might think if you just looked at these two rosters on paper. Both teams are unbeaten through four games, so the prospect of a first loss for one squad is always exciting. Both teams are more than capable of scoring points in bulk, too, so chances are good that you’ll be rewarded for staying up late with a fun game to watch.
NFL Power Rankings Week 5
Of 12 spreads on the board in Week 4, only three of them were posted at a touchdown or higher. Two others were posted at 5.5 and 4.5. But the remaining seven spreads were at a field goal or less, which is generally an indicator that even the sportsbooks are unsure of who is going to win.
2014 Heisman Trophy Predictions
Week 5 threw a wrench into the National Championship odds, with Florida State’s second scare in as many weeks, dropping it to the third favorite. Alabama is now the favorite at +600, and Oklahoma is close behind at +700 ahead of the Seminoles (+750). As for the Heisman picture, it remained the same at the very top but is fluctuating wildly behind Marcus Mariota. Todd Gurley and the similarly-impressive Kenny Hill are hot on Mariota’s trail.
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 5
I am man enough to admit that I have been mostly clueless about the NFL this year. It isn’t through a lack of effort. It just seems like every time I figure that I have a team figured out they pull a 180. I’m not alone in this -- scores have been lopsided, and sportsbooks have certainly not hated September. All you can do in a case like this -- a season with two completely forgettable weeks worth of picks in the books already -- is just work harder next time out.
Free NCAA Football Pick for Thursday: Arizona vs. Oregon
We've got three games this Thursday to start the week of college football action, but it's a Pac-12 showdown between two undefeated ranked rivals that will have everyone's juices flowing that night. The Arizona Wildcats head up to Eugene to play the Oregon Ducks after both teams had last week off and it's the Ducks who will be out for revenge.
NCAA Football Betting: Fading the Top 25 Weekly Free Picks
Week 5 is in the rear view mirror, and the calendar is flipping over to October. Last week’s selections split with USF and Washington winning and New Mexico State and Cincinnati losing. For the season overall, the Top 25 teams have 50 wins and 50 losses against the spread. There were two ties last week (Ole Miss and Baylor). It’s a very interesting week to keep an eye on the Top 25 this weekend since there are far fewer big-name teams on a bye week this Saturday. There will be plenty of action, and I expect a bunch of great games.
European Tour Picks: Alfred Dunhill Links Championship Odds and Predictions
With the PGA Tour dark ahead of the 2014-15 opening event next week, the eyes of the golf world will remain on Scotland this week for the European Tour's Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. Before I look at that, let's do a quick recap of last week's Ryder Cup at Gleneagles in Scotland.
2014 Los Angeles Kings Predictions and NHL Futures Odds
Hiring Darryl Sutter to coach this team was a risky move in 2012. After all, he was fresh off of running the Calgary Flames into the ground as general manager. Turns out there was no need to worry. He won the Stanley Cup in his first season with the team, and then he did it again last year.
2014 Detroit Red Wings Predictions and NHL Futures Odds
The Detroit Red Wings should be very thankful that the Atlanta Thrashers moved to Winnipeg. That set up a geographic imbalance in the league, and the solution was to move Winnipeg to the Western Conference last year and have Detroit and Columbus move to the East. That move is the only reason that the Wings were able to keep their 22-year playoff streak intact last year.
