Boxing Betting Strategy and Expert Tips for Knocking Out Your Sportsbook
by Doc's Sports - 6/21/2019
Sport is a beautiful thing. On any given night, two teams chock-full of the best athletes in the world, or two single competitors, face off against each other in hopes of beating their opponent and claiming victory. Most of the time the better team/player prevails. However, sometimes, when you least expect it, something insane takes place that leaves everyone scratching their head and wondering what the hell just happened. For many boxing fans, that night was on Feb. 11, 1990.
New Football League AAF: Use Caution When Betting
by Trevor Whenham - 2/12/2019
Just five days after the Super Bowl, the AAF, the Alliance of American Football, debuted on CBS. It's an eight-team league that is well funded, with all teams centrally owned. The games drew decent numbers, outpacing an NBA game on ABC and pulling in the right demographics on a Saturday night. The league isn't trying to take on the NFL - they aren't that dumb. But they do see themselves as a way to satisfy the endless hunger of Americans for football and to give players who have not made it in the NFL another chance to cut it.
Canelo vs. GGG Odds: Expert Betting Predictions for Saturday's Rematch
by Chris Vasile - 9/10/2018
It has been just more than a year since the sporting world stopped what they were doing and tuned in to the biggest pay-per-view event in recent memory. You probably know what I'm talking about without even mentioning it; that's how captivating it was. If you don't, well shame on you for missing out. I'm talking about the Floyd Mayweather vs Connor McGregor "fight" that took place on Aug. 26, 2017. Now, while it was more of a sideshow than a legitimate boxing match, it did serious pay-per-view numbers and got boxing fans wanting more.

2018 Winter Olympics Betting Advice: Value Bets
by Trevor Whenham - 2/13/2018
I'm kind of obsessed with the Winter Olympics. When they were held in my hometown of Calgary in 1988 my grandfather was the president of the games, so I grew up around the Olympics. They are a far different animal than they were back then - far more complex and less pure - but they are still very compelling. It also doesn't hurt that Canadians are pretty good at the games. As fun as they are to watch, the Olympics can be pretty good to bet on as well. As always, there are some bets that are much better than others.
2018 Winter Olympics Wagering Advice and Tips: Bets to Avoid
by Trevor Whenham - 2/13/2018
I love watching the Winter Olympics, and I love betting on them. Often we find ourselves drawn to the heavy favorites in many events. So far, for example, Chloe Kim in the snowboard halfpipe, Mikael Kingsbury in the moguls, Dutch speed skaters, and Norwegian skiers have all delivered as prohibitive favorites. But favorites don't always come through - especially in more volatile events. The trick to betting success, then, is to know which favorites aren't worth the gamble. Here are six favorites I'll be steering clear of (odds are from Bovada):
Free CFL Picks for Playoffs from Expert Canadian Football Handicapper
by Raphael Esparza - 11/10/2017
The 18-game CFL regular season has given way to the postseason and the quest for the 2017 Grey Cup Championship. Toronto in the East and Calgary in the West earned a first-round bye by winning each division title. This Sunday in a pair of division semifinal matchups, the other four playoff teams will look to take that next step towards winning this year's title.
Free CFL Picks Week 12 from Expert Canadian Football Handicapper
by Raphael Esparza - 9/6/2017
One of the betting angles that is unique to the CFL is a home-and-home series where two teams play one another in consecutive weeks. Since there are only nine teams in this league playing an 18-game regular season, there is a much higher level of familiarity with one another, especially when playing two games in back-to-back weeks.
Free CFL Picks Week 11 from Expert Canadian Football Handicapper
by Raphael Esparza - 8/30/2017
I didn't see Edmonton's meltdown against Saskatchewan coming with last week's free pick in what was probably the most shocking upset in the CFL this season. I think this upset was actually more of a case of the Roughriders being underrated as opposed to Edmonton being overrated. In light of this, I decided to go with Saskatchewan's key home game this week against Winnipeg for my free CFL pick of the week for Doc's.
Free CFL Picks Week 10 from Expert Canadian Football Handicapper
by Raphael Esparza - 8/23/2017
Sometimes you just know when to go against a team no matter how good it is playing at that particular time. That is why I went against Edmonton last week as the only undefeated team in the CFL to cash in on my free weekly pick for Doc's after the Eskimos fell to Winnipeg 33-26 as slight one-point road favorites. I also know that Edmonton is still one of the best teams in the league, so that is why I am jumping back on its bandwagon in Week 10.
Free CFL Picks Week 9 from Expert Canadian Football Handicapper
by Raphael Esparza - 8/16/2017
There are four head-to-head division battles on tap in Week 9 of the CFL season that could have a big impact on both title races. The West remains leaps and bounds ahead of the East with a combined straight up record of 25-10 while a record of 3-4 SU is good enough for the lead in the other division. Edmonton has led the way with a perfect start, but getting that eighth straight win could be tougher than expected.
Free CFL Picks Week 8 from Expert Canadian Football Handicapper
by Raphael Esparza - 8/9/2017
The current disparity in talent between the CFL's West Division and the East has been a goldmine for sports bettors this season. While Calgary easily covered against Toronto in last week's inter-division 41-24 romp, I cashed in my winning pick on the "over" 54.5 points in that game.
Free CFL Picks Week 7 from Expert Canadian Football Handicapper
by Raphael Esparza - 8/2/2017
A few CFL teams came into this season with a renewed commitment to focus on offense and scoring points behind their top playmakers. A perfect example was last week's thrilling last-second 41-40 victory by Winnipeg against Montreal to easily take my pick of the week "over" the closing 50.5-point line.
Free CFL Picks Week 6 from Expert Canadian Football Handicapper
by Raphael Esparza - 7/26/2017
I went with Saskatchewan and the 10 points on the road against Calgary last week in my free weekly CFL pick for Doc's Sports, and once again the Stampeders went on to prove that they are still the team to beat in this league with a 27-10 victory that more than covered the spread.

Free CFL Picks Week 5 from Expert Canadian Football Handicapper
by Raphael Esparza - 7/19/2017
When it comes to handicapping the CFL, it becomes a bit too easy to get caught up in the early results in a league that has quite a bit of parity across the ranks. That was the case with last week's pick when favored Calgary actually lost to Montreal straight up. The Stampeders are still one of the top teams in the league, but Montreal proved that its new-look offense is a far cry from the one that averaged 21.3 points per game last season.
