Clients, this information is released to you today a couple of days prior to releasing this information on both GambLou.com and on our appearance on Sportsbettors TV. None of these are recommended plays rather they are provided to you as a courtesy of membership (as you may play some college football). I want you to be able to learn what some of the Pro’s in Las Vegas who spoke at the seminars last weekend had to say. Here are a few of the better angles I picked up from the seminars….
Brian Edwards sat on the college panel and he is Mr. SEC. He is a dear friend of mine as we hook up for this weekend each year. Brian is also pretty sound UFC guy. His best play (even given to me personally and with vigor) is the over 7.5 +105 for Mississippi State. Bruce Marshall who also sat in on that seminar as panelist firmly agreed with Brian’s position. We don’t play college but if we did this would be the first we would drop on.
Dave Cokin is a long time Vegas handicapper I trust and respect for his hard work and professionalism. Dave is the epitome of a grinder. His best angle for week 1 in college Ohio +3. In the Mountain West he believes fading San Jose State is a winning formula and views Wyoming as the team with upside and a team that will surprise especially early in the year ATS.
Bruce Marshall feels that the Big 10 is the ‘epicenter of coaches on the hot seat’ conference. His belief is that Wisconsin is one undervalued team. If they beat LSU he believes they are going to sail into the four team playoff and he likes their future value to make the 4 team playoff. This one makes sense to me but again Clients…..my money goes to the Pros!
Kenny White was the last panelist for college and he is a sharp guy. He feels USC is the surprise team in the Pac 12 and is down on UCLA’s ability to defend so he does not view them as strongly as many others do. Kenny feels the Pac12 is equal to the SEC in terms of quality of play and I do happen to side with him here. His best angle is that Oregon at 9-1 represents tremendous value to win the whole enchilada for he thinks they sail into the final 4 playoff.
Our friend and fellow post seminar intelligence trader Erin Rynning participated in the AFC panel. Erin (ER) is a regular sharp at Sportsmemo.com. I encourage all of you to check ER out for he is as sharp as they come, he is reputable and a guy I really respect in this business. ER believes that teams that are bound to disappoint in the AFC this year are the Chiefs and Colts (we really agree with that Colt angle). He also believes that teams that may well overachieve this year could well be Houston or Tennessee and we are again in agreement with those feelings too.
David Froethart-Lane last year’s winner of the Supercontest believes Seattle and New Orleans are the two best teams in the NFC even though he sat on the AFC panel. I don’t know David but if he won the Supercontest that is enough to gain my respect.
Todd Furhman is another amigo of ours who comes with tremendous pedigree and professionalism. He is also a great resource for us as we communicate regularly with Todd (Twitter DM). Todd worked for years at Caesar’s as a financial analyst. His insight and background are sound and based on his strong finance background we respect Todd’s ability to remain ice sold in his views regarding sports Gaming. Todd was just hired by Fox sports 1 as their Gaming insider…..a position he has earned and will excel at. One guy we can always trust to get the positive message out regarding the condition of the gaming industry is Todd Furhman. We urge you to find Todd on Twitter and follow his knowledge. Todd agrees that the teams in the AFC that may well overachieve are the Jag’s and the Titans while he views KC and Indy as fades (a theme of the AFC panel).
Marc Lawrence sat on the NFC panel. He is a professional that offers decades of pedigree and Gaming acumen. I’ve only bet Marc once but he is articulate and to be respected. Marc believes in data so he is big on playing the early weeks in the NFL lightly until he can actually gather data. The best quote we can forward to you rom Marc is when he stated, “I’ll fade Seattle” this year. We certainly agree! He believes late in the season the Falcons may well bounce up. He likes the ‘Skins to bounce also and have a better year which we will have to see to believe.
Steve Fezzik is a math based handicapper who has won the Supercontest two times back to back some years ago. We value his take on the NFL because we approach this profession of handicapping in almost opposite directions. Fezzik is overly high on the Packers this year which we happen to completely disagree with (especially in light of Raji injury this past weekend). Fezzik’s best play is Carolina Under 8. We absolutely agree with that take by the way. Steve’s best tidbit in our opinion was when he outlined the fact that teams like the Cardinals and Rams who play in a tough NFC division will hold great value when they travel to an AFC team early and mid-year. The schedule and pedigree of the Cards/Rams will more than make up for the difference in records when they face an AFC team with an inflated record that is not as complete a team as the Rams/Cards. If you think about this comment it is damn sharp and something I completely agree with yet I did not come up with this angle myself! This is why I go to these seminars fellas!
Dave Tuley also contributed to the NFC panel. Of all the ‘Cappers we have befriended and shared info with Dave and I seem to share a love for the dogs on an equal basis and I would venture to dsay our Gaming philosophies are very close to one another. Dave is soft spoken and sometimes folks may not understand the pedigree and acumen Dave possesses because he does not rant and rave…..but believe me this guy can handicap the NFL. His website View from Vegas is one of the finest gaming forums available (we have been a lurker on that site under the handle theFin for many years). Dave is high on the Saints this year to go deep deep deep. He also believes the Cardinals are a team that will surprise in the NFC.
This is a brief synopsis of the seminars from this past weekend Clients. This info will not be published or discussed until Thursday on our appearance on Sportsbettors TV live!
Again we recommend none of these plays for you but want you to have the benefit of this knowledge for your own use.
Let’s get ready for the NFL men.
