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.
Horses that can win the Kentucky Derby in 2014
How do you figure out which are the horses that can win the Kentucky Derby this year? Well, do you have a dart board? I have been obsessed with this race for more than 30 years, and I do not ever remember a flatter, more wide-open race. Outside perhaps of California Chrome, there are no superstars in this field. There have been some strong performances, and some real flashes of brilliance, but every horse has warts as well.

Back to the Futures: 2014 NFL Schedule is Out
“Win, win, win, possible loss, win, win, win, win….” That’s how most sports fans are spending their Thursday after the 2014 NFL schedule was released on Wednesday evening. Sportsbooks also wasted no time putting out the lines for Week 1, which features plenty of intriguing showdowns—including Peyton Manning vs. the Colts.
2014 Kentucky Derby Jockeys
They are the littlest men and women in professional sports, but there are no athletes any tougher, or more consistent willing to face serious risk, than the jockeys. In a race like the Kentucky Derby they are incredibly important. They need to avoid trouble in the frenzied start, weave through the immense amounts of traffic safely, and manage the finite resources of their horses as they tackle the brutal Derby distance. A good ride can elevate a horse, and a lousy ride has destroyed the Derby for many promising runners.
2014 Kentucky Derby Trainers
As is typically the case, the field this year for the Kentucky Derby offers a mix of established star trainers and unfamiliar names with interesting stories. Here’s a look at six of the most interesting Kentucky Derby trainer storylines. Be sure to check Doc’s Sports Kentucky Derby page daily leading up to the big race for the best content to help you beat your bookie for the Run for the Roses.
Chitu Odds to Win the 2014 Kentucky Derby with Picks and Predictions
It has been a bit of a soap opera getting here, but it seems as if Chitu is finally headed for the spot in the Kentucky Derby starting gate that he has earned. Bob Baffert has seemed unsure of what to do with this horse almost since he won the Sunland Derby last time out. First he was pointed at the Derby. Then that commitment seemed lukewarm at best. Then it was, rather strangely, announced that he was going to be run in the Derby Trial a week before the Derby, but that he would still come back for the Derby, though few seemed to believe that that was likely.
Ring Weekend Odds to Win the 2014 Kentucky Derby with Picks and Predictions
I have held off on writing this article because I just didn’t think that Ring Weekend would wind up in the starting gate for the Kentucky Derby. Derby fever is an intense illness will only one cure, though, so it appears more and more likely that he will take the spot in the starting gate that he has earned.
NBA Odds: Thursday, April 24, 2014 Opening Line Report and Handicapping
The three series on Thursday night are the first in these NBA playoffs to be played on the lower seed's home court. and each has to be feeling satisfied after splitting against the series favorites in the first two games in their gym. Here's a look at each matchup.

NBA Playoffs: Los Angeles Clippers vs. Golden State Warriors Odds Breakdown
The Los Angeles Clippers and Golden State Warriors may be in for a long and contentious series. Golden State struck first by shocking Los Angeles with a four-point Game 1 victory before the Clippers rebounded with a dominant Game 2 performance that saw the team win by 40 points. The division rivals will now take their matchup upstate for two games inside the Oracle Arena on Thursday night and Sunday afternoon.
PGA Tour Picks: Zurich Classic of New Orleans Odds and Predictions
Well, I was right and wrong last week. Right in that a guy who doesn't bomb it of the tee would win the RBC Heritage on Hilton Head Island because that was usually the case. Wrong in that I believed Matt Kuchar, Mr. Consistent, would struggle a bit in the wake of a Masters hangover.
NBA Playoff Betting: Value Long Shots
One trend has become very apparent since the NBA expanded each round of its playoffs to best-of-seven game affairs; it's awfully tough for lower seeds – underdogs – to win a series, let alone a conference title. Best-of-seven series have greatly reduced the chances of upsets. First-round NBA series used to be best-of-three, then best-of-five, and underdogs had a much better chance of taking two out of three games or three out of five from a better team. But four out of seven? Not so much.
