The Advisory Board: Weekly Prescription
by Doc's Advisory Board - 01/15/2008
It's a new year but it's the same old Doc's Sports! The year 2007 was one of the most successful in the history of Doc's Sports Services but we aren't resting on our laurels. In fact, all we did was raise the bar that much higher for ourselves. Our crack team of handicappers is still hard at work to meet and exceed last year's profits and would love to have you along of the ride.
If you're a little bored of the gridiron, you may or may not have noticed that Doc's Sports is home to THE BEST TEAM OF COLLEGE BASKETBALL HANDICAPPERS IN THE COUNTRY!!! This group of cappers, collectively, has banked over $100,000 for dime bettors to this point in the college hoops season and they don't show any signs of stopping! Mix in the fact that several cappers are achieving success in the NBA and NHL as well and Doc's Sports Services is clearly a one-stop profit center for all of your gambling needs.
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:
Saturday was one of my biggest days of the year -with two separate Game of the Year situations on the board. Too bad I came up small, hitting my ACC Game of the Year behind Miami but losing my NFL Playoff GOTY when Seattle couldn't handle a 22-point cushion. Losers across the board and a disappointing weekend.
But that's why tomorrow is another day. The pendulum will swing the other way, and god help the bookies when it does. Hopefully this will be the week that we get back on track and hopefully my Game of the Month (there is a situation for Wednesday) will be just the play to kick start this carnival.
Here are a couple other games I'll have my eyes on:
Duke at Florida State (7 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 16)
Over the past three seasons we've seen, consistently, that the Blue Devils are susceptible to teams that can throw several quick perimeter scoring options at them. Florida State started the season as hot as anyone before a small recent slide. However, their three losses in their last six games all came on the road and all came against quality teams. If Duke is laying more than eight points - which I think they will be after their dismantling of Virginia - I think this could be a great option on a very live dog.
Marquette at Louisville (7 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 17)
This is one of the most intriguing matchups of the week. Not just from a stylistic standpoint - where the perimeter quickness of the Golden Eagles will be tested by the size and strength of the Cardinals - but also from a momentum standpoint. Marquette's only two losses came against Duke on a neutral court and at West Virginia, but Louisville is a completely different team now that David Padgett and Juan Palacios are back and healthy. I'm looking for either Marquette getting five or more or Louisville laying less than three.
VEGAS SPORTS INFORMER
UPSET SUNDAY! Yes, Sunday was one of the biggest upset days I can remember. In the NFL San Diego beat the Colts and the New York Giants beat the Cowboys, both as road dogs. Then one of the biggest upsets of the day wasn't even in football. It was in the NBA as the New York Knicks beat the Detroit Pistons. WOW, Isaiah Thomas is one good coach…NOT!
Now that the Colts and Cowboys are at home for the rest of the NFL playoffs the New England Patriots should be able to coast through and win the Super Bowl by double-digits. Sunday was also a shocker because I had a winning day in college basketball! I've been struggling as of late in college hoops I guess I need to stop watching Breaking News on Britney Spears and start handicapping more college basketball. But that Spears family is just great fun!
Here are three games that I have my eye on this week:
NFL Conference Championship Sunday
Here is my Super Bowl prediction; the New England Patriots will be playing the Green Bay Packers. New England should be able to beat an injury-plagued San Diego Chargers team and Green Bay should be able to snow-whip a lucky and "how did they get here?" N.Y. Giants team.
Phoenix at Los Angeles (Thursday 1/17) NBA
No secret here that both coaches dislike each other so that's why this looks good to watch in my eyes. Both teams have stars that are injured with the Suns being without grant Hill and the Lakers without Andrew Bynum. If the total is in the low 200s this game could be a good time to bet on the over.
It was another winning football weekend for Allen Eastman. The "Michigan Money Man" won +4 Units and will release his two NFL conference championship plays on Thursday.
The game I'm really looking forward to on Sunday is New York vs. Green Bay. If you had told me that Eli, and not Peyton, Manning would be in the conference title game, I would have had you committed. I know the Giants are hot right now - Manning has made dramatic improvements and the Giants have a veteran defense, etc. - but Green Bay will not lose to the Giants on the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field. Not with a forecast of 20 degrees and a wind-chill expected to be below zero, and not behind Eli Manning. I don't see Brett Favre, Ryan Grant and the rest of the Packers letting this golden opportunity slip away.
It looks like there is no stopping New England in its quest for a perfect season. I truly felt the physical Jaguars were the Patriots last remaining hurdle to a perfect season. I loved San Diego's gutsy performance against the Colts, but if Phillip Rivers and LT are hurt, the Chargers might as well stay on the bus.
On to NBA picks, I'm on a mini 75-percent run and still look at the Lakers and the Hornets as pretty consistent breadwinners.
January is my month to shine in college basketball and my NHL numbers are among the best at Doc's. I've produced plus units, plus money and my winning percentage is consistently at or over 62 percent. We've got a lot going on in the world of sports this month and I'll be right in the middle of it on a daily basis.
