Doc's Sports News and information for Doc's Sports en-us Copyright Doc's Sports 2012 2014-10-31T17:12:43-05:00 Doc Sports Handicapping Monday Night Football Predictions: Indianapolis Colts at New York Giants Odds & Picks Monday night's game will determine if Giants coach Tom Coughlin will be back as the team's coach next season. At least that's my opinion. New York has missed the playoffs two straight years and four of the past five. Coughlin is the NFL's oldest coach and longest-tenured in the NFC. If New York loses at home off a bye week to fall to 3-5, I think the playoffs are a huge long shot and Coughlin will be out. After all, think about the Giants likely have to go against for a wild-card spot (no shot at NFC East title): Seattle, San Francisco, Dallas/Philadelphia (whichever doesn't win the East) and Green Bay/Detroit (whichever doesn't win the North). Good luck with that. Free Expert NFL Picks: Denver Broncos at New England Patriots Odds and Predictions I definitely believe the Peyton Manning-Tom Brady rivalry hype gets a bit sickening after a while, but there's really no argument that these are the two best NFL players of this century and perhaps the two best regular-season quarterbacks in league history. I frankly don't think there's any question that Manning is the best with his record five MVP awards (a betting favorite at Bovada to win No. 6), the single-season and career touchdown record, and single-season and soon-to-be career passing yardage mark (Manning is 4,740 yards behind Brett Favre, so next season). Weekly Football Betting Public Action Report After a few weeks of technical issues we are back on track this week with the Public Action Report. I donít know about you, but Iíve missed it. Weíre back strong with four interesting college football games this week. The Pac-12 is represented by two big games, we get some ACC action, and there is even an independent game to kick things off. As we move into November this is often when the Report is at its best, so hereís hoping history repeats itself. Football Odds Weekly Report on Most Significant Line Moves Football fans should spend the weekend in front of the television this week. Figure out a different time to do the yard work or errands! The college football slate includes some huge Top 25 showdowns, which mean a ton now that the regular season is entering its final month. In the NFL, there are some marquee games on late Sunday afternoon and Sunday evening. Free Sunday NFL Totals Pick for Over and Under Betting The Broncos and Patriots is arguably the biggest game on the board this week as NFL fans everywhere get another instalment of the historic Brady vs. Manning rivalry. Manning won the latest chapter in last year's AFC Championship game by a 26-16 score, as it was the first time in five meetings that Denver and New England stayed under the posted total. It was a great revenge win for the Broncos after they blew a 24-0 halftime lead in New England earlier that season, but I suspect this year's regular season tilt will resemble the playoff game more than that 34-31 regular season game. NBA Odds and Predictions: Saturday, November 1 Opening Line Report and Handicapping Is it too early to talk about New Orleans Pelicans' third-year star Anthony Davis for NBA MVP this season? Obviously yes, but Davis was just a monster in the Pelicans' season-opening blowout of Orlando. His chances for MVP obviously increased with Kevin Durant's injury. Of course, there's still some guy named LeBron James to deal with (although LeBron didn't look MVP worthy in his first game). Here is a look at all 12 games on a busy first Saturday of the NBA season. Tracking the Wizards: NBA Picks and Handicapping for Washington Basketball I just spent the entire MLB regular season handicapping the Washington Nationals as part of a betting strategy that relies on specialization through in-depth knowledge of a particular team. I also put this knowledge to the test by releasing weekly free picks with the use of Docís Sports Unit Betting System. While I produced a modest return of $486 on the year for $100 bettors, I am now turning my full attention to the Washington Wizards in the NBA with the goal of doubling that return, at the very least. 2014 VCU Rams Predictions and NCAA Basketball Futures Odds While VCU is technically still a mid-major, the Rams are a dominant force in college basketball on a perennial basis. Shaka Smart has been the hottest coaching commodity around in the last few offseasons, but he continues to stay true to VCU. In Smartís five years with the program, VCU is 137-46. They are one of only three programs to win at least 26 games in five straight seasons. This Week in Sports Betting, A-Z A. Anthony Davis. Bow to the brow. Davis went wild in the New Orleans Pelicansí opener on Wednesday night. He scored 26 points, pulled down 17 rebounds, and blocked nine shots. Monster. Davis is +1000 at to win NBA MVP. Free Expert NCAA Football Picks: TCU Horned Frogs at West Virginia Mountaineers Odds The Big 12 is wide open. Kansas State doesnít have a loss, so they lead the way. These two squads, along with Baylor, are next with just one loss. The Big 12 doesnít have a conference title game, but this game is essentially the first round of the conference playoff. You donít win anything if you win, but you probably lose your chance at winning the conference with a loss.
