Bookmakers Bury Most Bettors--But Not My Clients
Bookies Buried Bettors This Weekend But Not My Clients Who Went 7-2 ATS And Finished Up 315 Units
200-Unit College Blowout Kickoff Classic Won As Nebraska Crushed Fresno State By 33 Points, 43-10
NFL Season Begins Thursday Night As Super Bowl Champion Broncos Host Panthers Team They Beat In The Big One
Clemson, Alabama, Houston, Stanford 1-2-3-4 In My Top 30 College Poll
By Kelso Sturgeon
Bookmakers were dancing in the streets, bettors were looking for their loan sharks and college football fans in places such as Norman, Los Angeles, South Bend and Baton Rouge were in disbelief over what happened to their favorite teams - those that go by the name of Oklahoma, Southern California, Notre Dame and LSU.
To set the record straight, members of my three football services went 7-2 over the weekend and finished the Friday-to-Monday stretch up 315 units. They made all the money they wanted or could afford to win.
It is now on to the National Football League and Thursday night's opening game, a showdown that finds the Carolina Panthers at the Denver Broncos, meeting the team that beat them 24-10 in last years Super Bowl. It has to weight heavy on a handicapper's mind that one of the two games Carolina lost was to this opening opponent.
Denver (15-4 in 2016-17) showcasing a new quarterback, 3rd-year veteran Trevor Siemian, a 7th-round draft choice out of Northwestern, who hopes to fill the shoes of superstar Peyton Manning. Those are big shoes but bettors must take a wait-and-see view of the situation. Siemian beat out veteran Mark Sanchez (now with Dallas) and first-round draft choice Paxton Lynch (Memphis) for the job.
While the Broncos will put Siemian in his best position to win, one can assume they will be counting heavily on their blue-chip defense to get the job done. Denver ranked first in the NFL in total defense last season, giving up but 283.1 yards per game, and first against the pass, allowing 199.6 yards per outing. They also ranked third in rushing defense and fourth in points allowed.
Carolina arrives in the Mile High City, pissed off and focused on revenge. The Panthers certainly have the talent, led by quarterback Cam Newton and a solid defense - and let's not forget, an attitude.
Denver opened as a 1-point favorite in this game but early money has moved the number four points to a Carolina -3. Carolina went 7-2 straight up (SU) and 5-4 against the spread (ATS) last season while Denver turned in figures of 8-2 and 4-5-1.
The game is a tough call but I am so confident I have the winner I will be releasing it as a 25-unit play. The game will begin at 8:35 Eastern and will be televised nationally on NBC.
