Tony Acosta Jan 7, 2016  
Posted by Anthony Acosta.

One of the more common betting strategies discussed by NBA bettors involves the role of fatigue — specifically the impact of playing in back-to-back games. Many bettors believe that oddsmakers overvalue the significance of playing on consecutive nights, while others claim that back-to-back games are only detrimental to a team if they’re playing on the road due ...  read more
Tips for a Winning Bowl Season
Tony Acosta Dec 9, 2015  
Handicapping college bowl games is very different from handicapping regular season college games. These games are played at neutral sites by teams that have not faced each other in several years, if ever. Bowl games feature teams from different conferences making it very difficult to get a read on who has played a better schedule. Coaching Factor Bowl teams have a break of several weeks betwe ...  read more

Tony Acosta Oct 26, 2015  
Revisiting an oldie but goodie

Although we constantly talk about the value of betting against the public, one of the most popular strategies for bettors is the 80-20 betting system. In the past we've discussed how bettors can win at a 57.1% rate by fading large public favorites, but we had not analyzed this system in years and wanted to know whether a more-informed betting public had im ...  read more
NFL Season Win Totals: Cincinnati Bengals
Tony Acosta Aug 31, 2015  
The Cincinnati Bengals have been a strong regular season team but have had their problems in the playoffs. The Bengals finished last regular season with a record of 10-5-1. The oddsmakers have set this year's win total at 8.5 for the Bengals. This is an interesting line because the Bengals bring back pretty much the same team from last season. The Bengals have also had at least 9 regular seasons f ...  read more
Tony Acosta's NFC East Preview
Tony Acosta Aug 27, 2015  
The NFL regular season is here. I would like to give you a quick look at the NFC East.

The Dallas Cowboys finished last season 13-5 SU and 10-8 ATS. The Cowboys have really improved their depth at the linebacker position for this upcoming season and with Sean Lee returning from an ACL injury they should be solid at the LB position. Dallas also used 5 of their first 6 picks on the defensive ...  read more

Anthony Acosta's ACC College Football Preview
Tony Acosta Aug 20, 2015  
We are all excited to see the college football season quickly approaching. I would like to take some time and give a quick look at the ACC. I'm expecting Clemson and Florida State to finish at the top of the Atlantic division. The Coastal division should see Duke and UNC at the top. Clemson has some solid offensive power behind quarterback Deshaun Watson which should catapult them to compete for t ...  read more

Air Force Falcons Preview
Tony Acosta Jul 23, 2015  
Air Force Falcons

2014 Results: 10-3 SU; 8-5 ATS; 4th MWC Mountain Division

2014 was a big season for Air Force not only because it was successful but it was because the Falcons needed to be successful for the sake of the program. Coming off a 2-10 season in 2013, another bad season could have been detrimental to the program going forward for years to come. Instead, the Falcons didn't ...  read more

Northern Trust Open Preview and Picks
Tony Acosta Feb 18, 2015  
We were able to cash another winner last week as Brandt Snedeker got back into the winners circle at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am, his second win there in three years. He is now qualified for the Masters which was a huge goal but despite playing well, winning again this week is a longshot. Injuries took a big hit on Snedeker the last couple years so it is a great sight to see him back to playing i ...  read more
