I give you the Indianapolis Colts as proof it does. The Colts have advanced one round in the playoffs each of the past two seasons, being eliminated on the road. In 2012, Andrew Luck's rookie year, the Colts went to Baltimore in the wild-card round and were dominated 24-9. In 2013, they staged a huge home rally in the same round and beat Kansas City 45-44. http://www.docsports.com/2015/odds-indianapolis-colts-nfl-home-schedule-026.html NFL Season Win Total Sucker Bets http://www.docsports.com/2015/nfl-season-win-total-sucker-bets-149.html There are some NFL season win total bets that make sense. They fit with how you see things turning out during the season. They could be worth a bet. Then there are those that just seem like a really, really bad idea. Like convenience store sushi. You can't be certain that they are losing bets, but there is enough uncertainty and cause for concern that you just can't possibly justify betting on them. http://www.docsports.com/2015/nfl-season-win-total-sucker-bets-149.html Five To Follow MLB Betting: Friday, May 22, 2015 Opening Line Report http://www.docsports.com/2015/five-follow-mlb-betting-friday-may-22-opening-line-report-375.html When you think of Washington's Ryan Zimmerman, you probably don't think of one of the best sluggers in baseball. Solid player with a career .284 average, 189 RBIs and 741 RBIs in 1,239 games. What Zimmerman does better than perhaps anyone active right now (at least in the National League) is hit walk-off homers. http://www.docsports.com/2015/five-follow-mlb-betting-friday-may-22-opening-line-report-375.html How to Bet the 2015 Belmont Stakes: Tips and Expert Wagering Advice http://www.docsports.com/2015/how-bet-belmont-stakes-tips-expert-wagering-advice-810.html We are now days away from a real chance at history. American Pharoah is the latest horse to have a shot at immortality by winning the first Triple Crown since Affirmed in 1978, and he is one of the best to have that chance. As exciting as his presence is, it also makes it a very difficult race to bet on. http://www.docsports.com/2015/how-bet-belmont-stakes-tips-expert-wagering-advice-810.html Handicapping the 2015 NFC South Schedule with Important Games and Predictions http://www.docsports.com/2015/handicapping-nfc-south-schedule-important-games-predictions-145.html The NFC South may be the worst division in football. The situation was so bleak in 2014 that the division had fans and media experts questioning the rules and wondering if an under-.500 team should even be allowed to make the playoffs. No changes were made during the offseason, of course, since sub-.500 teams making the playoffs is a rare occurrence. http://www.docsports.com/2015/handicapping-nfc-south-schedule-important-games-predictions-145.html Handicapping the 2015 NFC North Schedule with Important Games and Predictions http://www.docsports.com/2015/handicapping-nfc-north-schedule-important-games-predictions-143.html The Green Bay Packers are the clear favorite to capture their fifth straight NFC North title with the rest of the division struggling to improve over the offseason and one team actually losing a franchise player during free agency. The Packers themselves must deal with the fallout of a devastating playoff loss that cost the organization a shot at a sixth Super Bowl appearance and may use the disappointment as a catalyst for a renewed interest in the regular season. http://www.docsports.com/2015/handicapping-nfc-north-schedule-important-games-predictions-143.html This Week in Sports Betting, A-Z http://www.docsports.com/2015/this-week-in-sports-betting-a-z-150.html A. American Pharoah. Trainer Bob Baffert is the master of coming up one jewel short of the Triple Crown. His horses won the first two legs in 1997 (Silver Charm), 1998 (Real Quiet), and 2002 (War Emblen). Thirteen years later Baffert is at it again with American Pharoah. Will this time be different? There is reason for optimism, as Phaoroah dominated last weekend's Preakness Stakes by seven lengths. Bovada Sportsbook has him at even money to win the Belmont Stakes and the Triple Crown. http://www.docsports.com/2015/this-week-in-sports-betting-a-z-150.html Tracking the Nationals: MLB Picks and Handicapping for Washington Baseball http://www.docsports.com/2015/tracking-nationals-mlb-picks-handicapping-washington-baseball-177.html Specialization on just one team when it comes to betting on MLB games can be a lucrative betting strategy when it is done on a long-term basis. That is why I am spending the entire season exclusively handicapping the Washington Nationals and releasing free picks for select games with the use of Doc's Sports Unit Betting System. The ultimate goal to help prove this betting theory is to build a profitable bankroll with these unit plays. http://www.docsports.com/2015/tracking-nationals-mlb-picks-handicapping-washington-baseball-177.html Cleveland Cavaliers vs Atlanta Hawks Game 2 Free NBA Picks & Odds http://www.docsports.com/free-picks/nba/2015/Cleveland-Cavaliers-vs-Atlanta-Hawks-Game-2-Free-NBA-Picks-Odds-649.html Cleveland Cavaliers vs Atlanta Hawks on Friday, May 22, 2015 in Game 2 of the NBA Playoffs.
