Superbowl road map and College Hoops to date

I have not posted for awhile, as I have concentrated on my Slack Channel for keeping subscribers informed of the daily plays and other things of interest in both the sporting world and stock market activity.

But today I have decided to share with everyone my Superbowl road map for today.

As you can see no play on todays game I can see, the line has stayed steady, and the public is 67% on KC.

The 3 columns are Model, Variables, and public edge.

NCAA BB is deep into the season with only a few weeks to go before we get into March Madness.

The record to date for NCAA BB is:

2023/24 NCAA Hoops

Totals 5-11
Sides 2-0

Totals 2-0
Sides 5-10-1

Totals 2-0-1
Sides 33-24-1

Totals 0-1
Sides 9-6-2

Combined season to date
Sides 49-40-4
Totals 9-12-1

The generally good early totals did not come through this season, but we have gained ground on those. Sides have been solid at a tad over 55% winners. I will take that every season:)

NFL Contest top 5 picks, Westgate top 5 and season to date for active sports, all posted

Last week my contest picks went 3-2, bringing my season to date record for contest picks to 15-18-2

For plays I went 1-0 last week in the NFL with NE +8.5 being an easy winner.

Season to date for plays in the NFL is 4-8-2

The contest where I pick every game against the spread went 7-6 last week bringing my season to date record

in that contest to 54-53.

A slow start this season in the NFL. Are we due to pick up:)  We will see.

In College football this weekend I went 3-3 bringing my season to date record to 23-17-1 for sides and 1-1 for totals.

In MLB we won about 5 units for the regular season , down from the +16 units we won last season. But we are having

a solid playoff season Going 3-2 for +1.90 units. The first game of the Worlds Series I had Arizona +140 and they lost in the bottom of the 9th

giving up two runs to lose the game by 1:(

The NBA is also in full swing now.  We sit at 2-2-1 , it will be a very long season:)

So far no plays in the NHL but I suspect there will be some hearing our way.

Today I have sent out two plays in the NFL.

My 5 contest picks for today are:

Cinci +5.5

NE +8.5

Wash +7

Cleveland +3.5

Denver +7

In the Westgate last week their top 5 picks went 0-5 bringing their record to 18-16-1

This week the top 5 pick is:

For some reason this season the Westgate top 5 picks are delayed no on Sunday morning.  Some weeks they

are available and some not. This week I cannot find them anywhere.

I have had a number of new subscribers recently, and it is not too late to join us!

Just go to http://rickjshandicappingpicks.com and on the landing page you will find a paypal dropdown menu. Most choose the monthly

Letter From a Long Time Follower

“Rick,I am still amazed how you do it. I have followed you almost from the beginning not only from your posting on your website but also you time at 2+2 forums.

I have noticed a continuous improvement year to year in your methods. But the more remarkable thing to me is your persistence in educating and putting out your picks. Almost every site I am familiar with has gone by the wayside. Yet yours keeps getting stronger and stronger.

I have to ask “Where do you get your focus and energy” to keep this up?

You have taught me a lot over the years and I have gone from a “punter” to a reasonable handicapper. Whereas before I was a typical undisciplined sports bettor I am now very aware of the necessity of a disciplined approach. It has done wonders.

In addition, you’re going from a free site to a subscription based site was long overdue. I appreciate your keeping the membership fee low and not trying to “milk” money out of the sports bettors. I know there are many that would pay substantially more to follow your site.

But that goes hand in hand with your persona that you have established in the sports betting world. You most likely do not know it but your name “RickJ” is very well-respected as one of the leading handicappers in sports betting. In addition, your reputation for integrity is as high.

There are very few real things out there but you are definitely the real thing.

Again thank you for all you have done over the years.”

My Response:

It’s hard for me to respond to that as humble a person as I am:) But it’s emails like this that I get from time to time that help keep me motivated.

I have always said in the past that I approach sports handicapping the way crossword puzzle addicts approach their morning routine. I can not think of anything more challenging than trying to figure out EV on sports games.

As far as the subscription cost I have mentioned before my goal was to defer my expenses that keep rising every year as I get more advanced in my techniques. I look at subscribers as partners in this handicapping endeavor rather than customers. Subscribers help me defer my costs and allow me to justify keeping my expensive hobby going.

Thanks for the mail. It’s nice to know I am appreciated!
