Your best source for winning sports picks including expert NBA picks, college basketball picks and MLB predictions is now available.
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.
NBA Draft Lottery Odds and Predictions
Some years, being really lousy is a good thing as it earns you the most ping-pong balls in the NBA Draft Lottery. You simply don't win a title in the NBA without a superstar. They rarely switch teams via free agency these days (Dwight Howard could be an exception) because the process is geared toward teams being able to keep their players by being able to offer them more. Thus, you have to build through the draft. Last year, there was a presumed franchise player available: Kentucky's Anthony Davis. And he showed some signs of stardom in his rookie season.
This Week in MLB Baseball Betting By the Numbers
One quarter of the MLB season is now complete. Itís still very early in the year, but it looks like weíll see some great races in several different divisions. The AL East, NL Central, NL West, and AL Central all look like they have potential to be great races. If the Nationals ever start playing like they really should, then the NL East could be added to that list as well.
Case of the Mondays: The City Thatís Gone to Sleep
The Giants underachieved. The Jets were an embarrassment. The Mets are terrible. The Yankees are playing well but currently unable to pull away from Boston. New Yorkís two teams that are (er, were in the Knicksí case) involved in postseasons just endured a hellish week. The Knicks bowed out of the NBA Playoffs and the Rangers are on course to make a similarly unceremonious exit from the quest for the cup.
Reds at Phillies Picks, Odds and MLB Series Predictions
Two teams stalking their respective division leaders will lock horns in the City of Brotherly Love this weekend as Cincinnati takes a six-game winning streak to Philadelphia for a set against the Phillies. The Reds, currently with the second-best record in the National League, have pulled back-to-back sweeps to get within 1.5 games of St. Louis.
2013 Preakness Stakes Betting and Handicapping Preview
How many horses line up for the Preakness Stakes can tell you a lot about how the trainers and horse folk view the Kentucky Derby winner. For instance, in 2007 just eight horses came out to test Derby winner Street Sense, and in 2008 there were just 11 horses ready to run at Big Brown. Both of those horses were so well respected that they scared away most competition in the second leg of the Triple Crown.
2013 Preakness Stakes Predictions
We are on the verge of the second jewel in this yearís Triple Crown. It has shaped up as an interesting challenge. Six horses carry on down the trail after the Kentucky Derby, including heavy favorite Orb. They are joined by three new entrants ó wise-guy choice Departing, inexperienced Bob Baffert-trainee Govenor Charlie, and major longshot Titletown Five.
College Basketball: Odds to Win 2014 National Championship
The college basketball offseason isnít nearly as sexy as the down time between the major professional sports. But with players leaving early for the NBA Draft, the transfer carousel, some last-minute recruiting commitments, and off-court arrests and suspensions impacting rosters across the land, there is no shortage of storylines as the deck gets reshuffled each summer in one of the most wagered on sports in the nation.
Andrew Wiggins to Kansas Props Odds and Predictions
I will give college basketball rankings services credit in that they are usually pretty accurate on which players are going to be stars, while it's way more hit-and-miss in college football for obvious reasons. But the fawning over Wiggins it's almost ridiculous. The ironic thing is that he's been the top-rated recruit in the Class of 2013 only since October.
This Week in MLB Baseball Betting By the Numbers
At the last installment of this report, the Boston Red Sox were in first place in the AL East. Baseball is a long season, but that doesnít mean things canít change quickly. Fast forward to this week, and the Red Sox are three games behind the red-hot New York Yankees.
2013 Preakness Stakes Pace Scenarios
The pace scenario for the Preakness in 2013 seems to be reasonably straightforward. Of course, the same could have been said for the Kentucky Derby, and one horse blew it all to pieces. Palace Malice, one of the five Todd Pletcher horses in that race, was probably sent to the front early to keep the pace honest for Verrazano and Revolutionary behind.
Back to the Futures: Preakness Could Be Orbís Lucky Day
The stars appear to be aligning for Orb to become the 34th horse to win both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness and put himself one Belmont win away from the Triple Crown. Saturdayís field in Baltimore is down to nine, although Orb could get some competition from Departing, Goldencents, and Itsmyluckyday. And speaking of being one win away, both the Spurs and Grizzlies are just that. The Western Conference Finals could be set as early as Thursday.
Fresh Horses in the 2013 Preakness Stakes
You might think that picking a horse to win the Preakness that didnít run in the Kentucky Derby would make sense. After all, the Derby is a truly brutal test for horses, and the two-week rest following that race is far less than horses are used to now. While there seems to be logic there, history has not proven that to be the case. In the last 29 years of the Preakness, we have seen just three horses that won without having run in the Derby.
NBA Handicapping: Can Any Team Match Up with the Miami Heat?
The Miami Heat have the look and feel of a team that is marching toward the inevitable ó a second championship in the LeBron James era. Miami has laid waste to every team it has faced over the last 40 or so games, and even when they took a knockout blow to the face by losing Game 1 at home to the Chicago Bulls, they simply shrugged it off and dominated the series.
PGA Tour Picks: Byron Nelson Championship Odds and Predictions
Is Tiger Woods good for the game of golf? Of course he is. Ratings skyrocket whenever he's in contention, and PGA Tour pros now make obscene purses because of the Tour's boom in popularity due to Woods. With all due respect to any before him, Woods is the first golfer to become a pop culture world-wide icon (not always for good reasons).
MLB Betting and Handicapping: Totals Trends Report
Weíre halfway through the month of May, and the baseball action is heating up as the weather slowly warms up. After Boston shot out of the gates, it is the New York Yankees who now sit at the top of the AL East standings with the best record in baseball. The Bronx Bombers arenít letting injuries slow them down.
NFL Odds Released for Every Game of 2013-14 Season
The NBA Playoffs are reaching a fever pitch. The Stanley Cup finals are raging. Major League Baseball is putting its feet up for what will be their annual summer dominance of the sports betting calendar. But one of the biggest stories last week was the release of NFL spreads and odds by Cantor Gaming.
2013 Preakness Stakes Jockeys
Jockeys may be small, but they are almost impossibly tough. They are also very interesting. For bettors they are important, too. A good ride can turn a decent horse into a champion, and a bad ride can make a bum out of a superstar. As you get ready to handicap the little guys (and gal) in the 2013 Preakness Stakes, hereís a look at some of what each of them bring to the table:
MLB Handicapping Hot/Cold Pitchers and Hitters Betting Report
The Brewers are a disappointing 16-20 because they have given up 178 runs, more than any other team in the National League. As for their hitting, however, Ryan Braun is having a solid season, and he is getting help not only from Carlos Gomez but also from someone named Jean Segura. Segura is not merely the hottest player on his team; he is the hottest player in baseball.
Weekly Q&A with Docís Sports Expert Handicapper Vegas Sports Informer
Awhile back, Docís Sports decided to try and delve a bit deeper into the Informerís edge through a series of weekly discussions on some of the hottest trending topics in the sports gaming industry today. Our goal was to provide our readers a first-hand, behind-the-scenes glimpse of what is really going in the Las Vegas books as well as uncover some valuable insight that can only be gained from this insiderís view. The following is this weekís Vegas Sports Informer interview.
NBA Futures Betting: Western Conference Odds
Injuries and upsets have flipped the Western Conference on its head, and basketball bettors may get the rarely-seen No. 6 seed vs. No. 5 conference finals. Heck, thereís a solid chance that we are headed for a Memphis Grizzlies or Golden State Warriors vs. Miami Heat NBA Finals matchup. Either team would make an interesting choice to represent the West in the Finals, but neither would provide the star power to match up with the Heat. The series could be a turn off for the casual NBA fan.
2013 Preakness Stakes Trainers
When you get a collection of top horses contesting a Triple Crown race, you can be all but certain that there will be a cast of fascinating characters training them. Though the field is small this year, the 2013 Preakness Stakes trainers certainly donít disappoint this year:
2013 NFL Season Win Totals Predictions
If you are like me, NFL training camps can't get here soon enough. Alas, they are still more than two months away. But props are starting to roll out at some books, including the first team-by-team win totals of the year. In case you need a refresher, the Broncos and Falcons led the league with 13 wins last season, but neither made the Super Bowl. The 10-win Ravens won it all. The Jaguars and Chiefs each finished with the fewest wins at two.
2013 Preakness Stakes Picks Profile: Departing
He comes into the race off of a strong win in the Illinois Derby on April 20. After settling well off the pace early on, he made his move around the final turn, was in the lead by the top of the stretch, and only strengthened that lead down the stretch, though jockey Brian Hernandez never let up the pressure on the horse.
2013 Preakness Stakes Betting Advice: Itsmyluckyday
It was a very bad day for Itsmyluckyday in the Kentucky Derby. He galloped along mid-pack for the first six furlongs and was running the race he needed to. When it came time to flip the switch and start moving forward, though, there was nothing left. He looked far more tired down the stretch than he really should have and faded back to an irrelevant 15th by the finish line.
2013 Preakness Stakes Predictions: Mylute
Mylute was a respectable fifth-place finisher in the Kentucky Derby, grabbing the last of the prize money in the race. The connections would have hoped for more, obviously, but it was a solid race. He sat at the back of the pack early on, beating only Javaís War through early fractions.
