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.

2015 Al East Predictions with Odds and Expert MLB Betting Picks
It wasn’t long ago that the American League East was the clear-cut best division in baseball. In 2013 they boasted four teams with 85 or more wins, and in 2012 they featured three teams that won 90 or more. But like the current epidemic with America’s infrastructure, the franchises in the East are rotting at their foundations. Age and unfulfilled hype have crippled the Yankees and Red Sox, financial limitations and no fan support continue to shackle the Rays, and the Blue Jays and Orioles continue to fight a three-decades-old inferiority complex (and weak pitching) compared to their most successful rivals.
NBA Odds and Predictions: Friday, March 6 Opening Line Report and Handicapping
Honestly, if I'm the Atlanta Hawks then I'm happy to lose Friday's home showdown with Cleveland in the game of the night in the NBA (sadly not on national TV). The Hawks are the first team to clinch a playoff spot and are going to be the East's top seed without question. What they need is to have Cleveland finish with either the No. 2 or 3 seed as opposed to the No. 4 to avoid the Cavaliers until potentially the Eastern Conference Finals. The Cavs remain the -180 East favorites at Sportsbook.ag with the Hawks next at +280. I think Cleveland will get to No. 2.
2015 Kansas City Royals Predictions and Odds to Win the World Series
It was the best season for the Royals in more than a generation in 2014 as Kansas City earned a wild-card spot with an 89-73 record for its first playoff berth since 1985, ending the longest drought in the major leagues. The team did it with the best bullpen in the major leagues, perhaps the best defense and an old-school offense that ranked dead last with just 95 home runs but first in stolen bases and in fewest batter strikeouts. The Royals just got on base and created havoc. And when they had the lead entering the seventh inning, the game was essentially over.
NBA Betting Trends: Hot and Cold Teams Against the Point Spread
There have been some amazing performances in the NBA in the last few weeks. Russell Westbrook is on an incredible tear as he carries the Oklahoma City Thunder. James Harden continues to have a good year for the Rockets. There is a bunch of talk about the NBA MVP race this season. Many believe it is the toughest race to call in a long time. Soon the majority of the talk will about the race for playoff seeding as well. The stretch run of the season isn't as far away as it seems.
College Basketball Handicapping: Tips and Advice for Conference Tournament Betting
We are about to head into college basketball conference tournament season. In the eyes of most people it’s just an appetizer before the main course of the NCAA Tournament. For bettors who are prepared and focused, though, betting conference tournaments can actually be a very profitable activity. In order to do your best at this time of year, though, you need to be very aware of what makes these tournaments different than other games that we bet on.
NCAA Tournament Handicapping: Unranked Teams to Watch
The betting public generally pays the most attention — too much attention — to the ranked, high-profile teams that head into the NCAA Tournament with big records and bigger reputations. If we have learned anything over the years, though, it’s that a team doesn’t necessarily have to be ranked to do some damage when the tournament rolls around. It’s hard to really get a sense of which unranked teams are best positioned to do damage until the field is set and the bracket is released, but here are five teams that stand out as intriguing squads at this point:
Gonzaga Bulldogs Odds to Win the 2015 NCAA Tournament with Picks and Predictions
The Gonzaga Bulldogs dropped their final game of the season to a BYU squad that might not even qualify for the NCAA tournament in a few weeks. The loss, which came only days before the postseason is set to begin, broke the Bulldogs 21-game winning streak and an even bigger 41-game home winning streak, which was the longest in the nation and lasted just over two years. The BYU upset may not be a larger indicator of something wrong with the squad, but it was still a disappointing way to end the regular season.
Kansas Jayhawks Odds to Win the 2015 NCAA Tournament with Picks and Predictions
The Kansas Jayhawks lost three games during the final month of the regular season and took a tumble down the AP Top 25 rankings, settling into the No. 9 spot with one matchup left on their schedule before the Big 12 Conference Tournament rolls around. Kansas clinched its regular-season title with a home victory over West Virginia, but the accomplishment wasn’t without a cost as forward Perry Ellis, the team’s leading scorer, suffered a knee sprain late in the first half, and is expected to miss a week.
MLB Home Run Crown Betting Props Odds with Expert Picks and Predictions
Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa’s love of the juice has tainted the race for the home run crown a little bit, but there are still few things more exciting in sports than the long ball. As fun as seeing someone go deep is trying to figure out who is going to go deep more than anyone. Sportsbook.ag has odds on dozens of players to lead the league in home runs this year. There is always a chance a guy can come from nowhere to win it, but for now we are going to focus on the seven favorites:
Tracking the Wizards: NBA Picks and Handicapping for Washington Basketball
Specialization when it comes to successfully wagering on the NBA can prove to be a viable betting strategy over the long run. I have spent the entire NBA regular season concentrating my handicapping efforts on the Washington Wizards, and to help prove this point I have been releasing free weekly picks for the Wizards with the use of Doc’s Sports Unit Betting System. The results have been mixed at best with a year-to-date record of 8-9-1, but I began to turn things around with a 4-Unit payoff in my last pick.
NBA Handicpping: Boston Celtics Playing Hard and Cashing Tickets
The Boston Celtics are not a good team. They have a flawed roster and are in the midst of a long rebuild. Lately, though, they have done a very good job of imitating a solid team. Since Feb. 3 the team is 8-5 and looking quite solid. The winning isn’t the only thing going their way lately, either. Trading away Rajon Rondo looks better every single day. The trade deadline went fairly well — and looks better lately, too. This is not a title contender or anything, but it is a lot easier to be optimistic about this team now than it has been for a while.
This Week in Sports Betting, A-Z
A. Anthony Mason. Mason died at age 48 of congestive heart failure last Saturday. The beloved former Knick played 14 seasons in the NBA—including five with New York. He twice averaged a double-double with the Charlotte Hornets. RIP.
2015 Tampa Bay Derby Picks with Odds and Expert Betting Predictions
Trainers and owners are finally starting to realize what should have been evident for a long time — training and racing in Florida in early March is much nicer than doing so in most other places at that time of year. The Tampa Bay Derby has been around for a long time, but it’s only within the last decade that it has begun to raise its profile. Street Sense won both this race and the Kentucky Derby in 2007, and Super Saver was third in this race in 2010 before winning in Kentucky. This year, the field has set up to be one of the more impressive prep races of this early stage of the Triple Crown trail.
2015 Gotham Stakes Picks, Odds and Expert Predictions
The biggest threat in the Gotham Stakes could be the weather. Conditions are always a potential concern in this race — it is run in New York in early March, after all. This year, though, the weather has created a nightmare at Aqueduct. They have cancelled racing on Thursday — the 14th card lost to the weather this winter. In a year when we have already seen two prep races at other tracks postponed because of weather, let’s hope that Mother Nature lets us see what should be a pretty interesting Gotham.
2015 San Felipe Stakes Picks, Odds and Expert Predictions
The San Felipe Stakes, which will be run on Saturday afternoon at Santa Anita, is a historic and important race. Started in 1935, and run annually since 1945, the race is best known for being a prep for Affirmed, the last Triple Crown winner, in 1978. It has also produced Classic winners Sunday Silence, Fusaichi Pegasus, Point Given and Pioneerof the Nile in recent years. Last year, California Chrome was an impressive winner of this race en route to his success in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness. So, winning this race not only an important prep for the Santa Anita Derby but also a fertile ground for producing Kentucky Derby contenders.
NCAA Basketball Betting 3-Point Play: Three Interesting Opening Lines Thursday
Davidson's basketball program is probably best known as the alma mater of likely 2015 NBA MVP Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors. He led the Wildcats to the regional final of the NCAA Tournament in 2008. Davidson didn't return to the Big Dance until 2012 and was back in '13 but missed out last year. The school has big one at home against Virginia Commonwealth on Thursday night to help boost the Wildcats' at-large chances for this March. Davidson is the type of well-coached club no Power 5 team would want to face in the first round. Here's a look at that game and two others that caught my eye.
NBA Odds and Predictions: Thursday, March 5 Opening Line Report and Handicapping
It's the second week in a row where we are given only the two TNT games on the NBA schedule for Thursday, but again they are good matchups with all playoff teams. We had another coaching firing Tuesday in Denver's Brian Shaw. That should be it for the firings this season, but what's interesting in Thursday's Thunder-Bulls matchup is that I could easily see both OKC's Scott Brooks and Chicago's Tom Thibodeau elsewhere next season. Brooks might get the blame if the Thunder don't have a good playoff run, while Thibs just doesn't get along with the Chicago front office.
PGA Tour Picks: WGC-Cadillac Championship Odds and Betting Predictions
I was very happy to see good-guy Padraig Harrington win the Honda Classic on the first stop of the PGA Tour's Florida Swing at PGA National. I had mostly forgotten about the multiple-time major championship winner. He beat rookie Daniel Berger in a Monday playoff at the Honda, site of his first PGA Tour victory a decade prior. It was Harrington's first win since he won the 2008 PGA Championship only a few weeks after taking the British Open. Harrington, who lost his Tour card last year, needed a sponsor's exemption just to play the Honda. He won't have to worry about an exemptions for a while now.
