That brings us to +22.78 Units Season to date in these sports after a 10+ Unit season in MLB. We won 2.21 Units last week.
 
We are heading into week 13 in the Westgate NFL Supercontest. I had a 3-2 week last week bringing my record to 34 -29-2. That is around 54%.
 
This week my Westgate NFL Contest Picks are:
 
wash +3.5
mia +7.5
jets +3
tampa +8
bears +3
 
 
The Westgate Top 5 went 2-3 again last week bring its record to 34-31-0 for the season.
 
The Westgate top 5 this week is:
 
Indy
 
KC
 
Rams
 
Buff
 
Giants
 
I am fading 3 of the top 5 this week and not with any of them. For me that a good place to be.
 
 
My free NFL Road Map for today is:
 
Phil 42%
 
45.5
 
Dallas 58% -4 -3.5+102 -4 -3-125
 
Models: Phil Avg Edge
 
Variables: No Edge
 
Public % No Edge
 
Let’s start out the game by saying my handicapping techniques in most sports is that one of the first things I look at is what the public is doing.
 
If there is over 50 % on a team its either the other side or pass for me.
 
That means Phil is the team I would be looking at.
 
In this game, there is 42% on Phil which is not low enough to consider them, In addition, I see no variables that support either side.
 
The models do give a nice edge to Phil but that alone is not enough to consider betting on the game. So for me, this game is a pass.
 
For subscribers, I break down every NFL game this way along with every College Football Game.

After a winning MLB Season :

That brings us to +20.57 Units Season to date in these sports after a 10+ Unit season in MLB.We lost 8.6 Units last week.
 
We are heading into week 13 in the Westgate NFL Supercontest. I had a 0-5 week last week bringing my record to 31-27-2. That is around 53.4%. That was a major setback:)
 
 
My Westgate NFL Picks this week are:
 
Detroit +9.5
 
Jacksonville +4
 
Tampa +3.5
 
Cinci +4.5
 
Oakland +14.5
 
 
The Westgate Top 5 went 2-3 last week bring its record to 32/-28 for the season.
 
The Westgate top 5 this week is:
 
New Orleans
 
Pitt
 
Atl
 
Giants
 
New Eng
 
The top pick NO went down Thursday when Dallas won the game outright. I had a 1/2 Unit play on Dallas Thursday.
 
I am fading one of the top 5 this week.
 
My free NFL Road Map for today is:
 
Chargers 43%
52
Pitt 57% -3.5 -3 -3.5 -3
 
Models: Pitt No Edge +
 
Variables: No Edge
 
Public % No Edge
 
This is what many of the NFL games look like each week. Very little to go on. Typically there is 1 game that stands out , with maybe 2 more that show promise. Then its a matter of filtering games out to find a few more to come up with 5 picks in the contest.
 
It’s rare you find 5 games that look great.
 
So Tonight’s game is a clear pass to me.

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!
