The Advisory Board: Weekly Prescription
by Doc's Advisory Board - 09/04/2007
It was a spectacular weekend here at Doc's Sports as the Advisory Board combined to net over +40 UNITS IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL!!! That is just one step toward what promises to be another season of total domination!!! Our team is incredibly excited for the addition of NFL action into the fray this weekend and we are set to produce record profits for the site.
We would love to have you on board, and right now we are still offering our Early Bird Special for a full season's worth of football selections for just $695. This is an amazing value - with savings of over $250 off the regular price - and with the season upon us it would be wise to lock up your investment at the best possible price. That's just sound money management. That full season's worth of football picks takes you from opening night - of both college and pro football - through Bowl Season, the NFL Playoffs, and the Super Bowl. We've got you covered from late August to early February for the bargain price of less than $140 per month and AN AMAZINGLY LOW $30 PER WEEK!!!

In the meantime, here's the inside scoop into the betting world from the Advisory Board at Doc's Sports:
The first weekend of the fall football extravaganza came and went and was a rousing success in the Ferringo Household. With the exception of my alma mater, Syracuse, getting maimed in front of a live studio audience, the weekend was nothing but smiles and cash as we extended our football rush to16-5-1 over the past three weeks. Now we've finally got some NFL action to throw into the mix and I, for one, couldn't be more ecstatic. It's that fantastic time of the year when alcohol abuse, gambling binges, third-down conversions, and bestiality all run rampant within the national consciousness. Our true National Pastime is in full effect and I'm loving every minute of it!
On the diamond, it's now a scramble to the finish for players, cappers, and bettors. Up is down and black is white in September, and it's tougher to turn a trick at the window than it is to double-up Jose Reyes on a slow roller. But that's what separates the men from the boys. And just like my Mets are getting hot at the right time and running away with the N.L. East I'm looking to finish strong and solidify my place in the Pantheon of America's Top Baseball Cappers. Giddy up.
Here are a few games that I'll be staring down the barrel of this weekend:
Oregon Ducks at Michigan Wolverines (3:30 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 8)
Furious. That's what I was when I heard that Appalachian State had upset the Wolverines. See, I had been screaming that Michigan was overrated all offseason and I was expecting to make a killing on the Ducks when they went into Ann Arbor and "stunned" Michigan as a double-digit dog. Well, now the Wolverines are on Red Alert, the Ducks are getting just over a touchdown from the books, and the way the betting has gone everyone expects a bounceback game from Big Blue. Still, this is going to be one of the more entertaining games of the weekend so I'll be watching intently.
Chicago Bears at San Diego Chargers (4 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 9)
The two best teams in the NFL are squaring off right at the season's opening bell. This game has plenty of subplots, not the least of which is the unstoppable force (LaDainian Tomlinson) meeting the immovable object (Brian Urlacher and the Chicago D). However, I think this game is going to be decided - as always - by how well Rex Grossman and the Chicago offense can hold up against the blitz-happy San Diego defense, which, ironically enough, has former Bears defensive coordinator Ron Rivera as an assistant.
Cleveland Indians at Los Angeles Angels (Thursday-Sunday)
Two division leaders will be jostling in what could be a Divisional Series preview. The Angels have been one of the league's best money teams at home this year, while the Indians have been less than stellar on the Left Coast. The pitching matchups past the opener haven't been announced yet, but it appears that the Indians will have to face the heart of the Anaheim rotation. A game on which we can get tremendous value is Saturday's Sabathia-Santana matchup. Santana will likely be a dog, but he is a stellar 25-8 in his last 33 starts in Anaheim.
VEGAS SPORTS INFORMER
Most people this weekend were watching college football, stretch run baseball, the last week of Preseason NFL, and U.S. Open tennis. But what was I watching this weekend: the WNBA Playoffs! That's right; women's basketball had my attention. I've been red hot in the WNBA Playoffs only losing one game and cashing 11 out of 12. Make fun of the WNBA all you want but I'm putting extra cash in my wallet. On Saturday, college football was very kind as we hit our big game with Missouri over Illinois. I also had the money line on Appalachian St. over Michigan. NOT!!! This week also starts Week 1 NFL so check on my home page for news and notes on this week's NFL.
Here are some games that I have my eye on this week:
Los Angeles Dodgers at Chicago Cubs (Monday-Thursday)
Granted, the Dodgers are NOT in the N.L. Central but the Cubs need home victories just because the two teams chasing them are playing below-average teams (Milwaukee is at home against Houston and St. Louis is at home against Pittsburgh). I hoping the Cubs offense stays hot in the month of September, especially Derek Lee who I think has found his home run swing.
Oregon vs. Michigan (3:30 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 8)
Can Michigan rebound from one of the biggest upsets in college football history? If Michigan won last week this number would have been double-digits. I'm saying Michigan probably -12 or -14. I'm also looking at the total in this game because both defenses have huge questions marks. Michigan's defense couldn't stop Appalachian St offense so what do you think they'll do when faced against Dennis Dixon?
New Orleans vs. Indianapolis (8 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 6)
The start of the 2007-08 NFL season and this game should have tons of points scored. I'm just wondering why the Super Bowl champs are only a six-point favorite. No respect. If the number continues to drop I will be on the Colts and maybe the over.
WNBA Finals (Start on Wednesday, Sept. 5)
I've been red hot in the WNBA Playoffs so you know I can't wait for the Finals. And I definitely will be in Phoenix to watch them. Phoenix should be the favorite against either Detroit or Indiana. I'm also looking to bet these totals over, as Phoenix is averaging 89 ppg in the WNBA playoffs.
STRIKE POINTS SPORTS
After a very strong Saturday in the first week in college football, we now look to add the pro game to the mix. This past weekend's success now makes 10 of the last 11 winning Saturdays dating back to last season. We also continue the final push through September in baseball, however a lot of energy is geared up for college's second week and the NFL's opening week.
Here's several NFL football teams we'll be following throughout the year:
Looking to get back to the Super Bowl, the equation could be as simple as if Rex Grossman will show improvement off his sketchy and inconsistent season. The defense had a lot of drama this off-season, but Lance Briggs is back and the rest of the unit looks to be just as strong.
Talent can no longer be an excuse, and with a new coaching staff everything is in place to finally make a run. Matt Leinart has all the tools to lead this team, and he shouldn't have to try too hard with weapons around him like he was back at USC. The defense wasn't terrible last season and if they can improve just a bit this team will be in the wild card mix come December.
St. Louis Rams
This team has a chance to be very dangerous. While their defense won't scare many opposing offenses, the Rams offense is deadly in so many ways. Torry Holt and Isaac Bruce will again form a strong duo for Marc Bulger, while Stephen Jackson will look to carry over his unreal season to another profitable performance for St. Louis backers.
It's the first week of the NFL season and questions abound: will the Colts repeat? Can the Bears win the NFC again or will New Orleans complete the Cinderella Super Bowl run that it began last year? The Patriots, on paper, are even tougher this go 'round and the Chargers, who came up a few plays short of the AFC Title Game, are looking to seal the deal. All of these questions should make for an exciting and interesting season, and fortunately we'll be able to turn the NFL focus away from Mike Vick and onto the field. We need more "Ocho Cinco" and less Tank Johnson.
This week I've got a 5-Unit Play on an NFL game that's been on my radar for over a week. That pick will go along with my college football selections as I try to continue the success we had during last weekend's 4-1 run.
