The Advisory Board: Weekly Prescription
by Doc's Advisory Board - 11/27/2007
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:
It's a good thing I quit smoking. This time of year can be murder on the blood pressure, heart, and liver. With all subdivisions of three of the four major sports pouring out daily action, the machinations of the monetary-statistical complex are as powerful as ever. It can be overwhelming to the common bettor, but now more than ever is it most important to keep your wits about you and keep your senses sharp and focused. Traps and pitfalls abound, but this is what we do. We're trained professionals and we've been down these roads before.
Want proof? Right now the crew at Doc's Sports is cranking out winners at an incredible rate. And these aren't the padded and bloated numbers that you'll find at some chop shops and tout houses. We are clicking on all cylinders at the moment and it's a fantastic time to be aboard the Victory Train. Especially considering our College Football Game of the Year is kicking off this weekend. But amidst all the pandemonium and chaos don't forget to enjoy the games, enjoy the action, and enjoy the fact that this is America, and for right now we still have a sliver of freedom.
But that's enough of that for the moment. Now onto the show:
Boston College vs. Virginia Tech (1 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 1)
This game represents a reoccurring theme throughout this weekend: it's tough to beat the same team twice. The Eagles stole one in Blacksburg this year and are now posted as underdogs in the ACC Title Game. I know that the Public is rooting for the Cinderella win by the Hokies to cap an emotional season, but I don't know if it's going to happen. The dog has covered the last two ACC Title games, the dog is 7-1 ATS in this series, and the Eagles are 7-1 ATS in the last eight meetings. Smells like value.
Ohio State at Butler (7:30 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 1)
Not only do the Buckeyes have a date with the supposed No. 1 team in the land, North Carolina, this week in Columbus for the ACC-Big Ten Shootout, but then they have to travel to Hinkle Fieldhouse to take on another of the top dozen teams in the land. Depending on how Ohio State plays against UNC we're likely going to be fading the overrated Big Ten team as a road favorite against the Bulldogs.
VEGAS SPORTS INFORMER
Well, I hope everybody had a safe and a Happy Thanksgiving but it's back to normal and back to handicapping. Saturday and Sunday were outstanding days for us as we hit both of our 6-Unit football plays and cashed in the NBA again. We are finally gliding back to the winning side in football as we have cashed four out of our last five weekends on the gridiron. Championship Saturday is this weekend and Bowl berths are up in the air. The big game is in San Antonio, as Oklahoma will battle the top team in the BCS standings, Missouri. If Missouri wins they are going to Arizona to play in the BCS Championship Game. If they lose, who knows? But let's hope it doesn't come to that.
Here are three games that I have my eye on this week:
North Carolina at Ohio State (Wednesday 11/28) NCAAB
I saw North Carolina twice in Vegas on Friday and Saturday and both times this Tar Heel team looks like they can put away opponents anytime they want. Ohio State will have their hands full against this North Carolina team and if the Buckeyes play like they did against Texas A&M the Tar Heels will win this game with ease.
Oklahoma vs. Missouri (Saturday 12/1) NCAAF
Oklahoma beat Missouri at home, 31-21, in the middle of October, but this game is being played on a neutral site. Oklahoma is a totally different team on the road, going 2-2 SU and 1-3 ATS. Missouri, on the other hand, is red hot and is coming off a huge win against Kansas on a neutral site. Missouri is 9-2 ATS all season long and everybody knows it's hard to beat a team twice in football in the same season. Unless you are the New England Patriots!
Green Bay at Dallas (Thursday 11/29) NFL
Too bad this game is being played on the NFL Network! This game could determine the No. 1 spot in the NFC. This matchup is between Old vs. New, with old Brett Favre against newcomer Tony Romo. This game will be a close one and wouldn't surprise me too see it decided by a late fourth quarter field goal. Who wins this game? That's another story! Usually the old guy wants to show the new guy that he still has game for his age. Look out Cowboy defense - Brett Favre will be throwing.
STRIKE POINTS SPORTS
As enjoyable as it was to see Missouri jump up the polls with its huge win in the Border War, not to mention seeing West Virginia appearing to all but lock up its BCS title shot, a lot could still be altered. And let me be the first to say how grossed out I would be if the Sooners find a way to upset Missouri and overrated Ohio State steals its way into the championship game. Ugh, that alone might force me to boycott the sport.
After racking up +34 units the weekend before Thanksgiving, we made an even bigger push after our turkey day trio of days. We pulled in +43 units, thanks in large to an 8-0 football weekend and another profitable college basketball effort. We cashed both our NFL and CFB Games of the Week, and we have big plans for the final regular season college football weekend.
Here are several football match-ups we'll be eying this weekend:
Missouri at Oklahoma
The Tigers should have already booked their spot in the BCS title game, but still they must take on another challenge in the form of Oklahoma. Ohio State, who hasn't played a single highly-ranked opponent all season could find a way into the title game with an OU win. Let me get this straight, OSU and WVU could face off despite representing the two worst BCS conferences this season? Playoffs anyone?
Tennessee at LSU
This game smells of letdown for the Bayou Bengals. After letting its final home game of the season get away from them, they now must face a fired up Tennessee team that has been clicking on offense. The early line looks way to large for a team that just threw up its BCS title chances. The Vols should be able to make this one interesting with LSU's defense playing so sketchy.
