The Advisory Board: Weekly Prescription
by Doc's Advisory Board - 11/20/2007
This is a great time to be on board with the boys at Doc's Sports Services as we are in the peak gambling time of the year. Football is at the height of its power, hockey has begun and is proving to be profitable yet again, and basketball - both professional and college - is in full swing. To some people all of this action is overwhelming. But for the pros at Doc's Sports it's just another day at the office! Remember, we do the research and we do the work so you don't have to. All you have to do is place the bets, watch the games, and collect the cash. Good times.
And don't forget - call our Vegas office (1-866-238-6696) today and we can set you up with deals on multi-capper packages!!! Nearly three out of four of our clients use more than one handicapper and we offer the best value on the net.
In the meantime, here's the inside scoop into the betting world from the Advisory Board at Doc's Sports:
If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times: Thanksgiving is not only the most underrated holiday, but it should be instituted on a once-a-month schedule rather than just once a year. Family, friends, football, college basketball, great food, no work; I mean, what's not to love? I will be spending my first Thanksgiving in the Dirty South this year and, unfortunately, missing out on the time-honored tradition of the Bocci Bowl. That would be the drunkfest football game that me and 19 of my closest friends have every year the Saturday after Turkey Day. The tradition lives on and I will make My Return next year!
But enough of that. College basketball is here and I, for one, couldn't be happier. In part it's because football has been such a debacle but mostly it's because college basketball is my personal favorite sport. We've started off right where we left off last year - with two straight winning weeks - and I'm confident that I will consistently earn for the entire season. Besides that we're on a sweet little 10-3 NFL run and that's keeping us afloat on the gridiron.
Here are a few games I'll have my eye on this week:
Ohio State vs. Syracuse (Wednesday)
Madison Square Garden has been Syracuse's home away from Dome. The Orange have owned New York City and will be matched up against last season's national runner-up. This is an exciting Syracuse club and, as an alum, one I'm excited to watch grow. We've already cashed against them twice this year and now we'll have to see how much value they have against a new-look Buckeye team. Thad Matta will have OSU ready to face the 2-3 zone and this one will come down to the Buckeyes' ability to knock down shots from the outside.
Green Bay at Detroit (Thursday)
I absolutely love the mojo that the Green Bay Packers have going right now and I sense that Detroit's weaknesses - pass protection and the secondary - are finally sabotaging the season. They're starting to crack. The Packers are 11-2 ATS against the Lions and even though Brett Favre has always struggled in domes I think that Green Bay's defense will be enough to take this one down.
VEGAS SPORTS INFORMER
It's Turkey week BABY! My favorite holiday is here and this year we have a great NFL football matchup early Vegas morning. The streaking Green Bay Packers against the all-of-a-sudden cold Detroit Lions. Thanksgiving Day we also have a full TV day of college hoops from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. What a way to spend your day of eating too much and watching TV too much.
Friday college football looks to be a great day of games so when the honey is shopping us men can be watching some football. We are still streaking hot in college football as we had another winning weekend as we hit our 6-Unit Big 12 GOY with Missouri and we are looking for the same results this week with the college kids. In the NBA last year we started off stone cold but this year as of Monday we are up +26 Units for this young NBA season. Last year we ended the season with a total of 54 units so now I'm looking to double and maybe even triple last year's NBA results.
At this moment I would like to wish everybody a safe and Happy Thanksgiving and break away for the TV and spend some time with the family.
Here are three games that I have my eye on this week:
Louisville at UNLV (Wednesday 11/21) NCAAB
A Big East powerhouse invades the Thomas & Mack Wednesday night as the No. 6 Louisville Cardinals play my hometown Runnin' Rebels. UNLV is coming off a road win against San Diego on Saturday night but San Diego is not Louisville. If UNLV struggles from the outside this game could get ugly quick. I'm expecting Louisville to be between 6-8 point road favorite.
Missouri at Kansas (Saturday 11/24) NCAAF
Last week I used Missouri as my Big 12 GOY over Kansas State and this week I'm looking to bet Missouri again. (If the number is right!) In my eyes Kansas still hasn't played the schedule Missouri has played this year and Missouri has too much offense for this Jayhawk defense. If Kansas wins this game then I will be a Jayhawk believer. Until then, I'm looking again to make a bet on Missouri.
STRIKE POINTS SPORTS
Our NFL Game of the Year was a success, although it felt like the game was twice as long and just as grueling to see it through to the end. Nonetheless, the Rams came through and made our football weekend a profitable one.
And while the football season continues to heat up, we're just as hot in the college hoops game. This past weekend all we did was go 15-2 for +32 units, cashing in on Friday Saturday and Sunday, and we are going to continue plugging away during this week, Feast Week, with a ton of great early tournament action.
Here are several football match-ups we'll be eying this weekend:
USC at Arizona State
The bouquet of choice in this Pac-10 throwdown is roses. Yep, the winner is likely to own a trip to the Rose Bowl. In the Trojans' case, it would be a small cab fare. Anyways, USC has rebounded nicely after their second loss to Oregon, while the Sun Devils are perfect at home and have a certain cockiness about their success and confidence at home in Tempe. This one could be the best game of the weekend not played in Kansas City.
Missouri at Kansas
Speaking of which, the only thing on the line in this game could be a spot in the BCS title game. Kansas comes in as a small favorite, but this game is a pick in my opinion. All eyes will be on the two gunslinging quarterbacks in Mizzou's Chase Daniel and Kansas's Todd Reesing. But make sure you know the name Jeremy Maclin. This freshman could quite possibly be the best player on the field. Last week in Manhattan he broke the freshman record for all-purpose yards in season. KU, listen up: don't kick to this young dynamo.
