Check our our weekly newsletter for more details on this industry-leading run! Also nine free picks in this week's newsletter for NFL, college football and NHL action! Free Expert NCAA Football Picks: Texas Longhorns at Kansas State Wildcats Odds For a team from the Big 12 to feasibly be in contention for the first edition of the new College Football Playoff, they almost certainly need to do two things — run the table in the conference, and have no more than one loss overall. Bonus points if it’s a quality loss, too. That means that there is probably only one real contender left in the conference, and it is, improbably, the Kansas State Wildcats. It will be far from easy, of course — three of their last four games are road trips to TCU, West Virginia and Baylor — but after a big win at Oklahoma at least they have a chance. Expert NFL Betting Picks: Weekly NFC East Predictions Week 8 The Giants cost me another one of my weekly picks for the NFC East by failing to cover as seven-point road underdogs in 31-21 loss to Dallas last Sunday. Fortunately, New York has a bye this week as I try and rebuild my overall return on the year. NFL Totals Betting: Week 8 Over and Under Predictions I picked the wrong week to favor the “over” in my weekly picks for Doc’s Sports with nine of the 15 games in Week 7 of the NFL regular season staying “under” the closing total line. The result was a 1-2 record in my top three picks which dropped me below .500 on the year at 10-11. NCAA Football Picks and American Athletic Conference Week 9 Betting Report After coming up on the wrong end of my last three weekly picks for the AAC, I got back to my winning ways with the correct call in Cincinnati’s 41-3 dismantling of SMU as 14-point road favorite this past Saturday. I am now 4-4 on the year, but still in the red $170 with my unit plays using Doc’s Sports Unit Betting System. Free College Football Pick for Thursday: Miami vs. Virginia Tech Florida State might be running away with the ACC right now at 7-0 SU, but that's only in the Atlantic Division and they'll still have to get by the winner of the Coastal Division in the ACC title game to earn one of those four playoff berths. Miami and Virginia Tech are in the hunt in the Coastal right now with the loser of this week's game likely eliminated, so it is a big game for both programs. 2014 Memphis Grizzlies Predictions and NBA Futures Odds Every year the Memphis Grizzlies continue to be the team that no one wants to meet in the playoffs because they play one of the toughest brands of basketball since the “Bad Boy” Detroit Pistons in the late 1980s. Every series they participate in is a knock-down-drag-out war, and the fact that they never had a legitimate crunch-time threat to provide the team with reliable scoring during the closing minutes of a game is a shame. College Football Mid-Major Betting Report: Akron Zips Week 9 Week 9 of the college football mid-major betting report is here. This is the fourth year Doc’s Sports has offered this report. The goal of this weekly article is to try to show bettors that specialization is a profitable betting strategy. It’s a strategy many of the top bettors in the world use. There are 128 FBS level teams in college football, so specialization is even more relevant in this sport than just about anywhere else. NFL Teasers Betting: Best Basic Strategy Options for Week 8 Heading into Week 8 of NFL action there are three basic strategy teasers to choose from. The wager is a two-team, six-point teaser that moves spread of 7.5- to 8.5-point favorites down past the strongest NFL key number of three and 1.5- to 2.5-point underdogs up past the second-strongest NFL key number of seven. The wager is supposed to be a positive-expected value bet based on the math as blindly moving those spreads should produce a statistical win. Free College Football Pick for Saturday: Ole Miss vs. LSU The SEC is getting a lot of love these days with the two schools from Mississippi ranking #1 and #3 currently while Alabama (#4), Auburn (#5) and Georgia (#9) are other schools from the conference in the top-10. LSU is ranked as well at #24 with a 6-2 SU mark and they would love to boost their own rating with an upset win over Ole Miss this weekend.
