This one includes plenty of free picks, including the side and total for the NFL Hall of Fame Game (from Robert Ferringo). Also MLB and CFL free picks. Also find out the Top 10 reasons why you can't afford to miss out on Doc's Sports Advisory Board football picks this season! 2014 Odds to Win NFC East with Picks and NFL Predictions The NFL is just weeks away from the start of a new season, and I have come to the end of the line with my trip around the league previewing and making predictions for each of the eight division races with the help of BetOnlineís NFL futures odds. My final stop on this tour takes me to the division that is most near and dear to my heart; the NFC East. 2014 LSU Tigers Odds to Win the SEC with Picks & Predictions The LSU Tigers won the BCS National Championship in 2008 with a 38-24 win over Ohio State. LSU hasnít won the title since, but Les Milesí teams have won at least 10 games in each of the past four seasons. Miles may not be the best game-day coach (he isnít), but he definitely knows how to recruit, and he gets his players to play hard. Tracking the Nationals: Season-Long MLB Picks and Handicapping for Washington Baseball Specialization on a single team when it comes to wagering on MLB games can be a viable betting strategy. It stands to reason that the more you know about a particular team the better you will be able to predict the results of its games. Docís Sports has put this theory to the test this season by having me focus my handicapping efforts on just the Washington Nationals. Docís has been releasing my free picks for the team on a weekly basis with the use of their Unit Betting System, with the ultimate goal of earning a respectable profit over the course of the year. Five to Follow MLB Betting: Thursday July 31, 2014 Opening Line Report Thursday is one of the most interesting baseball days of the year and one to keep the MLB Network going all day long on your television or mobile device. The trade deadline is at 4 p.m. ET, so if you see a big name or two pulled early from an afternoon game, that means a trade is likely coming. For example, Boston scratched ace Jon Lester from Wednesday's start in anticipation of a deal. Here's a look at five interesting matchups Thursday. PGA Tour Picks: WGC-Bridgestone Invitational Odds and Predictions This is why projecting a winner of a golf tournament is so darn hard. Last week South African Tim Clark entered the Canadian Open having made just 10 cuts in his past 20 events. He was an afterthought. So of course he won the tournament, with Jim Furyk continuing his concerning trend of blowing 54-hole leads. 2014 Auburn Tigers Odds to Win the SEC with Picks & Predictions The Auburn Tigers were one stop away from picking up another BCS National Championship last year. The Tigers controlled most of the title game, and they outgained Florida State by 64 yards and had a 25-19 advantage when it came to first downs. Unfortunately for them, it was Florida State who came up with a huge special teams play late, and then the Auburn defense simply couldnít stop Jameis Winston and company late in the game. College Football Handicapping: Toughest Teams to Judge in 2014 There are some programs that are easy to judge each year in college football. We know, for example, that Florida State and Alabama are going to be very good as always, and that Rutgers and Maryland are going to have disastrous first years in the Big Ten. Handicappers love certainty ó or as close to certainty as you can get in sports, anyway. 2014 College Football Season Win Totals Predictions NFL season win totals get a lot more attention than the college football equivalents do. From a betting perspective, though, the college football version really deserves more attention. In the NFL any team can beat any other team on any given day. While that is technically true in college football, too, upsets in lopsided matches are less common. Denver Broncos Odds to Win the Super Bowl and Betting Futures So was the Denver Broncos' performance in the Super Bowl the biggest flop in NFL history? Seriously, it has to be asked. The Broncos set the NFL record for points, and Peyton Manning did the same for passing yards and touchdowns in the regular season in winning his record fifth MVP Award. Yet Denver didn't even belong on the same field with the Seahawks, a fact made evident on the first offensive play of the game when the Seahawks scored on a safety.
