100-Unit Bowl Upset Game Of Year Crushes Number Friday With Team Bookmakers Just Don't Get
200-Unit College Bowl Game Of Year Cashes Saturday By Surprising 3-4 Touchdowns
200-Unit NFL Game Of The Year Wins In Overpowering And Stunning Style Sunday 

By Kelso Sturgeon

This is the busiest and most challenging weekend of the year for handicappers who must wade through all the challenges of the college bowl season, solve the puzzle of all the hidden surprises of the final week of the NFL regular season, i.e. who's trying and who's just going through the motions, and shifting gears as college basketball teams start to play for keeps as their conference seasons begin. Oh, and let's not forget the NBA where the performance profiles of a handful of teams is in the process of changing dramatically. No weekend for boys in short plants - for sure.

For the record, there are 179 betting opportunities Friday, Saturday and Sunday - 125 college basketball games, 24 NBA contests, 14 major bowl games and 16 NFL contests. It is safe to say for handicappers it will be  menu of long days and short nights.

Despite the sheer volume of games to handicap, I am confident I will keep right on winning in all sports and that includes three knockout Game of the Year plays.

And rest assured I am confident I will win them all. I headed into the weekend off two consecutive 50-unit blowout bowls, with Kansas State (-6.5) and its 35-17 Cactus Bowl win over UCLA and Florida State (-14.5) and its 42-13 Independence Bowl win over Southern Miss. In the NFL I have won three consecutive 100-unit bets. In other words, I'm in the zone and should keep right on winning.

And, it also must be noted I am destroying the bookmaker business with a long-standing red-hot run in college basketball and more than holding my own in the tricky world of the NBA.
This is not to say it's easy to win but if you know what your are doing and put in the long hours of week it takes to analyze games you will get it done. My record speaks for itself. I know what I am doing and put in the time to find the edges.

Still Undecided About College Playoffs On Monday
#1 Clemson (12-1) vs. #4 Alabama (11-1)
#2 Oklahoma (12-1) vs. #3 Georgia (12-1)

We have the most challenging of handicapping situations in trying to determine the outcome of the two semifinal games that will determine the teams the two teams that will meet for the national championship in Atlanta January 8. I can easily make a case for all four teams and that's the problem. Regardless, I will be ready to take a stand Monday and will announce my plans in an e-mail Sunday night. Do no forget to check your mailbox.

50-Unit College Basketball Blowout Shocker Wins Friday Night
I Have Buried Bookmakers The Entire Season With My 50-Unit Basketball Plays, Stand 6-1 With the Last 7 And Set To Win Another One Tonight

It's a fact - bookmakers and bettors simply fail to see the changes in college basketball teams from one season to the next. I have capitalized on this factor dozens of times this season and am using it to go for broke on a game where one team is highly overrated and one dramatically underrated. This is just another example of the folks on both sides of the counter living in the past, with what used to be and it is the reason I have crushed bookmakers with my highroller plays this season and stand 6-1-0 in my last seven 50-units. Again I am taking advantage of this situation to cash another 50-unit college basketball ticket and you can win this one with me for just $45, charged to your major credit card. Better yet join my Personal Best Basketball Club for highrollers for the entire college and NBA seasons for just $699 - and that includes the college conference tournaments, March Madness and the NBA playoffs. But that's not all. Sign up for my Personal Best Basketball Club for the season and also get...

Nationally Televised Louisville-Kentucky Game Tops 3-0 Hoops Friday
There Are Few More Heated And Bitter College Basketball Rivalries That Kentucky Vs. Louisville And I Intend To Win This Game, Plus Two More Today

The untried 18th-ranked Kentucky Wildcats (9-2) host the unranked Louisville Cardinals (10-2) today in one of the most bitter rivalries in all of college basketball and you can expect both teams to take the floor with fire in their eyes. Regardless of the rivalry and basketball history both teams have a lot go prove and will attempt to do that before a national TV (CBS). As a former resident of both Louisville and Lexington I do have a bit of insight into this game and believe I have the goods to win it. For the record, neither team has shown me much this season. Louisville has played a cupcake schedule and Kentucky has lost to the only two good teams it has met this season. Kentucky lost to UCLA, 83-75, on a neutral floor in its last start and earlier in the season to #11 Kansas, 65-61, also on a neutral floor. While the Wildcats are 8-0 at Rupp Arena this season it must also be noted they have no legitimate big-time point guard - a major problem when playing a Louisville team that is quick and very athletic. You can win the Louisville-Kentucky game, plus two additional games, for just $15. Better yet, sign up for membership in my Best Bets Basketball Club for the entire college and NBA seasons for just $195.

200-Unit College Bowl Game Of Year Wins Saturday

I Have Waited A Month For This Day Because There Is A Team Playing Saturday That My Figures Say Has Everything It Takes To Win As My 200-Unit Bowl Game Of Year
Won last year with Clemson (+2½) over Ohio State 31-0!

Bookmakers have not made things easy for college bowl bettors this season, nor did we expect them to. That said they softened the challenge one one of the four games today with a betting line that simply does not reflect how superior is one of the teams. Now add to the soft betting line the fact the team I am releasing is healthy, has practiced in a manner that says it's coming to win, is loaded with talent and is the most incentive-driven teams I have seen thus far in the bowl season. That means I am confident this team will win as my biggest play of the post-season and am releasing it as my 200-unit College Bowl Game of the Year I could write a book on all the reasons this team should win in a powerful fashion but shall spare you that. You can win my 200-unit College Bowl Game of the Year for just $50, charged to your major credit card or to Pay Pal.

Sting Your Bookmaker Saturday With 50-Unit NBA Winner
I Am Having An Outstanding NBA Season And It Only Gets Better Tonight With Another Blowout 50-Unit Winner

I am having another successful/outstanding NBA season—again—because I understand what the pro game is all about. Winning in the NBA requires a completely different formula from the one that wins in college basketball. It’s simply—but my secret—and it just keeps winning. For instance this past Tuesday I released two modest favorites—the Detroit Pistons (-2) over the Indiana Pacers and the Denver Nuggets (-6) over the Utah Jazz—and won both games by 24 points by identical 107-83 scores. My formula works. There are seven NBA games scheduled for tonight and my formula says one of the 14 teams in action will win in dominating fashion and I am releasing it as a 50-unit winner. Get all the cash with this team for just $45, charged to your major credit card or to Pay Pal. This is another winning Personal Best Club highroller play and I must remind this club has absolutely destroyed bookmakers this season.

200-Unit NFL Game Of The Year Wins Sunday

I Have Won 3 Consecutive 100-Unit NFL Bets Over The Past Three Sundays And Confidently Go For My 200-Unit NFL Game Of The Year Today

I know I sound like a broken record but I must repeat when the NFL seasons gets down to 4-5 weeks left in the regular season, the situation factor trumps every single element of the handicapping process - and never so much as in the final week of the season, and here we are, flooded with an almost-uncountable number of situations in play. As most of you noted three weeks ago I started releasing my Sunday highroller play at the 100-unit level - up from the normal 50 units - and have gone 3-0 in this games (record below). It all had to do with the situation element, as does the release of today's 200-unit NFL Game of the Year.

3-0 With Last Three 100-Unit Sunday NFL Releases
12/24...100 Units...Chiefs (-10) 29, Dolphins 13 (Won)
12/17...100 Units...Ravens (-6.5) 27, Browns 10 (Won)
12/10...100 Units...Packers (-3) 27, Browns 21 (Won)

The situation under which this game is being played, plus the fact the team I am releasing also has ever other edge, makes it time to go for the big money. We've got it al going for us today and you can win my 200-unit NFL Game of the Year for just $50. You can go all-in with confidence on this one.

Another NFL Side/Total Parlay Goes 3-0 Sunday
I Have Claimed The Crown In Kingdom Of Side/Total Parlays This Season And Am Going For Another One In NFL Today - If It Isn't Broke, Don't Fix It

I have won so many 40-unit side/total parlays in the NFL this season I have lost count of just how many. Today I am going for my third straight with a team that has a performance profile that makes it grade out with an 85% chance to win this bet. Last Sunday it was the Chicago Bears (-6) over the Cleveland Browns and UNDER 37 when the Bears won 20-3. It was another bookie-buster with 25 units on Chicago, 10 units on the under and 5-units on the parlay When I release a side/total parlay certain elements must be present (my secret). They were all there again this past Sunday and they are all there in a single NFL game today. It always require a lot of work and digging to decide to go for the parlay and it usually has a lot to do with changing performance profiles, incentives and injuries. Wade through all of this, determine the truth and win - and that is just what I have done. Today it will again be 25 units on the winning team, 10 units on the total and 5-units on the parlay and you can win this Chairman's play for just $25. As noted this is an opportunity to win a fortune today without betting one.
