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 NCAA Football Picks: Texas A&M Aggies at Mississippi State Bulldogs Odds
Itís 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 ó at least through four games ó 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 youíll 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 Stateís 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 Mariotaís 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 isnít through a lack of effort. It just seems like every time I figure that I have a team figured out they pull a 180. Iím 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 weekís 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). Itís 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.
2014 Dallas Stars Predictions and NHL Futures Odds
Jim Nill became the GM of this team in April of 2013 after nearly 20 years in the Detroit organization. Just a couple of months later he took a major gamble when he paid a massive price for Tyler Seguin, the second overall pick in 2010, who Boston had given up on primarily because of off-ice maturity issues. It was a brilliant move ó easily the best deal of the season in the NHL.
2014 Minnesota Wild Predictions and NHL Futures Odds
The Wild has the second-best year in their existence last year, but sadly that wasnít a particularly high barrier to achieve. In 2003 they shockingly made it all the way to the conference final in just their third year in the league, but they had made the playoffs only three times since and had not won another round. Last year, though, they knocked out Colorado in seven games in the first round then tested Chicago seriously before falling in six contests.
2014 Florida Panthers Predictions and NHL Futures Odds
In 2012 the Florida Panthers somehow won their division and made the playoffs for the first time in an eternity. It was an inexplicable turn of events that makes less sense now than it did then ó and thatís saying something. Since then, though, they have returned to being the same old franchise we know and ignore.
Weekly Q&A with Docís Sports Expert Handicapper Raphael Esparza
Docís Sports: There are a number of head-to-head matchups between nationally-ranked teams on this weekís college football schedule with three big showdowns alone in the SEC. Of those three games, which SEC team do you see having the best shot at pulling off the upset?
NFL Survivor Pools Strategy Advice and Predictions: Week 5
I couldnít seem to be able to pick a winner if my life depended on it last week, but at least I had the week of Survivor Pool action figured out. There were three games with a spread of at least a touchdown. I correctly called that the Chargers were an extremely comfortable pick and Indianapolis was safe as well but that Pittsburgh was a bad idea.
MLB Betting: NL Wild-Card Game Opening Line Report
I have to hand it to the Pittsburgh Pirates. I didn't believe they would return to the postseason this year, especially when reigning National League MVP candidate Andrew McCutchen was lost for a few weeks in August. But here they are back in the wild-card game. That the Giants are in the postseason isn't a shock. Why? Because it's an even-numbered year. San Francisco won the World Series in the past two even-numbered seasons.
NCAA Football Predictions: Week 6 Opening Line Report and Picks
OK, lesson learned now. I am done thinking Michigan's players have any heart or pride. Yet again the Wolverines bit me in Week 5 as UM inexplicably lost at home to Minnesota. I said that Brady Hoke was going to be fired last week after a loss to Utah, but now I am 100 percent sure of it. About the only way he could save his job is winning out, and that's just not going to happen. I did hit on UCLA covering at Arizona State as Brett Hundley did play.
MLB Betting: AL Wild-Card Game Opening Line Report
How is this for a prop idea (you listening sportsbooks?): California teams vs. the field to win the World Series. Four of the five teams from the state -- sorry Padres -- are in baseball's postseason. Alas, not all four will make it to the LCS because the Angels will host the wild-card winner between Oakland and Kansas City. This is the first time in the wild-card era that both the Yankees and Red Sox didn't make the playoffs.
