100-Unit College, 100-Unit NFL Winners This Weekend - Looking At Blowout Wins In Both
The Power Of Bounce In College Football With 5 Potential Winners In This Newsletter
By Kelso Sturgeon
Many football bettors are stuck between the proverbial rock and a hard place each game day because they do not realize the deceit and and the manipulation of betting lines that goes on behind the scenes. These two things are hidden in the dark underbelly of the bookmaking and betting world, and it happens on both sides of the counter.
The big betting syndicates are famous for deceiving bettors in order to make them lose. In fact, they detest and hate anybody who follows them in order to find out what they are doing. Their biggest gimmick is to send one of their beards (everybody knows who he is and who he represents) to bet $25,000 on a team. A sneaky representative of the followers listens in and then spreads the word.
Everybody runs to the windows to bet the same team, only to find out a bit later this syndicate came right back in betting parlors all over the world to bet $250,000 on the other side. They gladly eat the $25,000 - meaningless to them in the overall picture.
And, then, there are those killing trap bets and lead bettors to shoot themselves in the foot. While it is extremely difficult to deal with the line manipulations, there is a way to avoid most traps by paying attention.
We had a perfect example of this in the NFL Thursday night.
Knowledge and insight enable successful NFL bettors to get past this by reading between the lines and win when almost everybody else is losing. That was the case Thursday when I sent my highrollers in the opposite direction of more than 80% of the bettors. The majority were on the Green Bay Packers -4 when Las Vegas bookmakers let it be known they were loaded with heavy one-sided action because few wanted the underdog Philadelphia Eagles.
The next logical move was to at least raise the number to -4.5 or -5.0 in hopes of getting Philadelphia play. It never happened and the books even dropped the number to -3.5, offering an open invitation to bet all one wanted on Green Bay. In writing about the game yesterday, I noted the suspicious number and said one could think the game was either fixed or that bookmakers had taken leave of their senses. Long ago, I realized there is more to winning than data in a world of rock-hard betting lines.
5 College Teams Strong Candidates To Bounce And Win On Rebound Saturday
I have said at least 1,000 times the bounce-back factor in college football is a major element to successful handicapping. History has proved when a team loses against an equally talented opponent, or gets buried as an underdog, it is eligible to bounce back, win and cover, in its next game, so long as that game is played six-seven games later.
The only elements necessary to be a bounce-back candidate are (1) To have the ability to do that and (2) be meeting an inferior opponent. It also helps if the bounce candidate is playing at home. I have listed below five teams in the bounce-back profile today and suggest you step in a give it a test. You just might go 5-0.
