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.
2014 Odds to Win the Big Ten West Division for College Football with Picks and Predictions
The divisions in the Big Ten are exactly why I hate that conferences have gotten big enough, and greedy enough, to need divisions and championship games. These conferences, loosely based on geography, pay no real attention to competitive balance. You don’t have to pay attention very closely to know that historically Michigan and Ohio State have ruled this conference, with Michigan State and Wisconsin making noise from time to time. Of those four powers, only Wisconsin is in the West. Penn State, a once and potentially future force, is in the East, too.
2014 Odds to Win the Big Ten East Division for College Football with Picks and Predictions
The Big Ten East, at least in Big Ten terms, is loaded — though not as loaded as it could be. Thanks to the strangely unbalanced new divisions in the Big Ten, traditional conference powers Ohio State, Michigan and Michigan State are all in the same division. Penn State, another program clearly on the rise, would be another contender, yet thanks to their seemingly endless suspensions they aren’t eligible for the postseason again this year. There is serious imbalance in the divisions, so winning the Big Ten East will be almost as impressive as winning the whole conference.
South Carolina Gamecocks Odds to Win the 2015 College Football National Championship
The South Carolina Gamecocks may not be the glamour program in the SEC, especially with Alabama, Auburn and LSU taking all the attention on a yearly basis. The school, however, has been one of the best programs in the nation over the last few years and is in the middle of its third consecutive 11-2 season. The trouble for South Carolina and coach Steve Spurrier is that the SEC typically has an undefeated or one-loss team by the time bowl season rolls around.
Five to Follow MLB Betting: Wednesday, July 23, 2014 Opening Line Report
There are six matinee series finales on Wednesday, meaning some starters in those games are likely going to take a seat playing a day game after a night game and then having to travel afterward. The Mets are a good candidate to rest a few guys because after playing in Seattle on Wednesday they have to fly back halfway across the country to open a series in Milwaukee on Thursday night. Here's a look at five interesting matchups on Wednesday's slate.
Weekly Q&A with Doc’s Sports Expert Handicapper Raphael Esparza
Doc’s Sports: Over the past few weeks we have been talking about some of the tighter divisional races in baseball. Now that the second half of the MLB regular season is underway, which team do you have coming out on top in the American League West; Oakland or Los Angeles?
Freshmen that Can Win the Heisman Trophy
The Heisman Trophy is awarded annually to college football’s most outstanding player. It dates all the way back to 1935, and over the years the list of winners include some of the most famous names at both the collegiate and pro level of the game. Until recently, the one thing that this prestigious list of winners did not include was a freshman as a winner.
2014 Ohio State Buckeyes Season Win Total NCAA Football Picks
A 10-point loss to Michigan State in the Big Ten championship game was the only thing standing between the Buckeyes and a shot at the national title last year. Urban Meyer picked up right where Jim Tressel left off and has Ohio State positioned as a perennial title contender. And this year’s version should be in the mix once again.
2014 Michigan Wolverines Season Win Total NCAA Football Picks
Michigan’s season comes down to talented quarterback Devin Gardner and how far he can carry the Wolverines. He is one of seven starters back on offense. However, the attack unit will have six freshmen or sophomores in the starting lineup and they will need to grow up in a hurry. The defense has eight starters back, including five seniors, and they will try to improve on Michigan’s No. 66 scoring rank.
2014 Wisconsin Badgers Season Win Total NCAA Football Picks
It has been an average couple seasons for the Badgers, who have gone just 17-10 after going 32-8 the previous three seasons. But thanks to being on the favorable end of Big Ten realignment the Badgers can be average and still dominate their bumbling competition in the limp West.
2014 Penn State Nittany Lions Season Win Total NCAA Football Picks
Former coach Bill O’Brien helped the Nittany Lions weather the immediate aftermath of the crippling Jerry Sandusky-Joe Paterno scandal. But new head coach James Franklin, formerly of Vanderbilt, is now the fourth head coach in 29 games for a program that had enjoyed the same head coach for 46 years prior to the scandal.
2014 Nebraska Cornhuskers Season Win Total NCAA Football Picks
Bo Pelini loses four games every year. It’s just the way it is. No matter how good or bad his roster is, Pelini finds a way to lose/only lose four games each season. So it was an easy call for the books to post Cornhuskers’ season win total at 8.0. And it’s an even easier call for me to pass on this total and predict a ‘push’.
2014 Michigan State Spartans Season Win Total NCAA Football Picks
The Spartans had an epic season in 2013, winning the Big Ten and then pulling an upset over Stanford in the Rose Bowl. That was the third time in four years that the Spartans have won double-digit games. And now prognosticators project this year’s team to the short list of contenders to make the new four-team playoff.
2014 Iowa Hawkeyes Season Win Total NCAA Football Picks
It seems like Kirk Ferentz has been on the hot seat for a decade. But the Iowa head coach is entering his 16th season at the helm in Iowa City and will once again try to live up to the very modest goals the program has set for itself. Iowa has gone just 27-24 over the past four season and 59-43 over the past eight years.
2014 Minnesota Golden Gophers Season Win Total NCAA Football Picks
Jerry Kill, despite all of his health issues, has done yeoman’s work with this Gophers program. He has increased his win total in three straight seasons, culminating in a rare eight-win season in 2013, and now the Golden Gophers are trying to break through into the top tier of the Big Ten.
2014 Illinois Fighting Illini Season Win Total NCAA Football Picks
Given its location and recruiting base, it doesn’t make sense that Illinois is as pathetic at football as it is. But the Illini have gone just 44-77 over the last 10 years and just 6-18 in Tim Beckman’s first two seasons. Beckman strikes me as a guy that is in way over his head and I don’t expect much progress in the crucial third year of his tenure.
2014 Northwestern Wildcats Season Win Total NCAA Football Picks
There is a lot going on under the surface with this Northwestern team. They are in the middle of a monumental challenge of the NCAA system and will face increased scrutiny and all kinds of off-field distraction this season. But if they can shrug that off then this Wildcats team has the potential to do some damage in the Big Ten this year.
2014 Boise State Broncos Season Win Total NCAA Football Picks
Bryan Harsin can only hope that his tenure in Boise will be half as successful as that of his predecessor. Chris Petersen, who went 112-18 over the last 10 years, has taken his game to Washington. Harsin, a former offensive coordinator under Petersen, will take over. And he has a team poised to make noise in the Mountain West.
2014 Fresno State Bulldogs Season Win Total NCAA Football Picks
Derek Carr finished off one of Fresno State’s all-time great careers, leading the Bulldogs to an 11-2 mark and a slot just outside the Top 25 last year. Coach Tim DeRuyter will try to carry on without his stud quarterback this season and Fresno will try to defend its Mountain West title.
2014 Nevada Wolf Pack Season Win Total NCAA Football Picks
Cody Fajardo will try to brush off the injury bug and stay healthy for his senior season. Fajardo is the key for this Wolf Pack team as it looks to bounce back from its first losing season in five years and its first non-bowl season in eight years. Fajardo is one of seven offensive starters back for the Pack.
2014 San Diego State Aztecs Season Win Total NCAA Football Picks
Rocky Long seems to have landed on his feet in San Diego and has guided the Aztecs to three bowl games in his three years at the helm. SDSU does have just 10 returning starters this season, including just four on defense, and this looks like a rebuilding season. But Long is a proven commodity and his team will be tough once again.
2014 Utah State Aggies Season Win Total NCAA Football Picks
I was incredibly impressed with how Utah State responded last year despite losing leader Chuckie Keeton – and breaking in a new coach – last season. Keeton is one of the best quarterbacks in the country and he is set for a strong senior season under second-year coach Matt Wells.
2014 Colorado State Rams Season Win Total NCAA Football Picks
The Rams will try to carry over the momentum of their stunning New Mexico Bowl upset of Washington State into this season and are hoping for their third bowl trip in the last 10 years. Jim McElwain is entering that crucial third year as the head of this program and all signs point up for Colorado State in the long term.
2014 San Jose State Spartans Season Win Total NCAA Football Picks
I really hope that San Jose State fans enjoyed that incredible 11-2 season in 2012. Because it is going to be a long time before the Spartans are threatening to win double-digit games again. The Spartans tumbled to just 6-6 last season and could be even worse off in Year 2 of the Ron Caragher Era.
2014 UNLV Rebels Season Win Total NCAA Football Picks
It is impossible for UNLV to add to that bowl resume because they are banned from postseason play due to poor academic standings. That has to be disappointing for the 12 returning starters back this year. The Rebels lost their quarterback, running back and four of their top five tacklers and overall the feeling around this program has to be negative.
2014 Air Force Falcons Season Win Total NCAA Football Picks
Troy Calhoun’s program has taken a nose dive over the last three years, seeing their win total drop each of those seasons and bottoming out with last year’s 2-10 debacle. Service academies always have a low ceiling. But the Falcons’ is lowering like a lid on Calhoun’s coaching coffin.
