Doc's Weekly Prescription
by Doc's Sports Services - 04/02/2007
There's a natural letdown that occurs from all the hair-raising, blood-boiling, shock-inducing, gleeful dancing, and general mayhem that occurs through a weekend's worth of gambling action. And it's a scientific fact that Monday's are the most difficult day of the week for sports and gaming fans across the world, with Monday Sports Syndrome linked to illness and famine across the globe. OK, so I made that last part up. But it the start of a new week can be a cold splash of water to the face for Men of Action like you and I.
Fortunately, our team of handicappers at Doc's Sports Services has precisely the cure: DOC'S WEEKLY PRESCRIPTION. Each week we'll be bringing you a quick recap of the insanity that engulfed the industry over the weekend and a short preview of some key matchups in the week ahead. It's exactly what you need to keep your instincts heightened and your eyes firmly fixed on upcoming opportunities to keep your bankroll growing.
Here's the inside scoop from the guys who get it done over at Doc's Sports:
The MLB season has arrived and Doc's Sports is starting to shift into summer mode. It started this week, when we cashed in with our NHL Western Conference Game of the Year on Saturday as Colorado took down Minnesota. We are currently on a 30-13 run and expect even more big things in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, which open up next week. Doc's wants you aboard for one of these successful sports and both are currently offering special prices.
Chicago Cubs vs. Milwaukee Brewers (Friday-Sunday)
The Brewers have the rare opportunity to open up the season at home for the first time in well over a decade, hosting the Dodgers for a three-game set before welcoming the Cubs for the weekend. The Brew Crew have high expectations this season and feel this is the year to contend for the NL Central title. The Cubs always have talent, but now they hope new manager Lou Piniella can lead them to the promise land. It is an important series for both teams and Doc's Sports knows who will have the upper hand.

Well, we're going to end what has been a truly entertaining, enjoyable, and incredibly lucrative college basketball season with a final profitable week. It's been a sweet ride, but now it's onto baseball and some of the niche events like the Triple Crown races. I can't tell you how excited I am for MLB this season. I have a few yearlong systems that I've been honing as well as a handful of teams and pitchers that I think will be under the radar for '07. I welcome everyone aboard and hope that the same success that we've had in football and college hoops will carry over onto the diamond!
In the meantime, here are some things I'll have my eye on this week:
New York Mets at Atlanta (Friday-Sunday)
Well, I would be picking fights with idiot Braves fans all weekend but my in-laws are going to be in town and they know less than nothing about baseball. Awesome, right? Oh well, I'll get to see my boys down here at least a half dozen other times this season so I can't complain. Unfortunately, I see the Braves winning this series. Friday is the home opener and I don't see Atlanta losing that one and then on Sunday we have Glavine-Smoltz. I'll take the power guy in that one as well. This is also a statement series for Atlanta, as if to say, "Remember us?"
The Masters (Thursday-Sunday)
Guess why I'm not going to the opening round? In-laws? How did you guess? Augusta National will be at the center of the Sports World this weekend and as much as this sounds like some square action I think you have to like the odds on the top guys. Vijay (+1300) and Ernie Els (+1500) have combined for eight Top Eight appearances in the past five years and have both finished in the Top Six in each of the past three seasons. Lefty has won two of last five and four Top Three finishes since 2002 and is still decent at +600. If you want a pair of semi-sleepers, check out Ratief Goosen (+2100) and Jose Maria Olazabal (+5000).
VEGAS SPORTS INFORMER
Sunday was definitely our Funday as we went 4-0 on the day to seal an 11-Unit profit This week should be another exciting one as we bounce our action around Major League Baseball, the NBA and the Arena League. We've been working it thus far in the AFL and make sure to hit my Insider Page this week for updates on this week's Big Money Play. I haven't decided if it's worth 6 or 7 Units, but I have a great feeling and am confident we'll find excellent value!
STRIKE POINTS SPORTS
As a very productive college basketball season concludes on Monday (18-1 in winning weeks this year; +129 units), we eye a similar effort in MLB. The start of a new season brings great excitement, looking to jump on teams and results that most won't see until the All-Star break. Here's to a very impressive baseball campaign.
Here's several teams we'll be eyeing over the course of the season:
Always the loveable losers come the start of the season. However, a major spending spree has allowed this team to shoot for a realistic chance at the NL Central crown. This division is wide open, and perhaps this prolific of an offense can make a name for itself in Wrigleyville.
Very young, but just as talented, these D-backs can surprise a lot of people, especially in the always weak NL West. They'll have to deal without the Big Unit for a while, but if they can stay afloat for the first six weeks, anything is possible
Los Angeles Angels
Injuries have already taken their toll on this team, but certainly they are the most talented in the AL West. Pitching is what will carry this club, so let's just hope Jared Weaver and Bartolo Colon can be key features in the rotation.
