“Coaches’ records in postseason? Rick, you are starting to sound like some tout who makes the public believe trends matter.”

Why Dan…. Thank you for those kind comments:). Actually it’s coaches record in preseason play….and their are some very good handicappers that handicap preseason based primarily on coaches.

“Hi Rick i have been betting your plays for about six months now. I had a question for you. I was wondering since your plays are chosen with a lot of factors plus the betting public wouldnt it be hard to decide the publics play so early in the day? I would think closer to game time would be a big factor. Just curious your thoughts. Thanks for taking the timeout to read this.”

You are correct. Sometimes its very difficult to tell early if a game falls into a play based upon public numbers. The games I put out early are ones that are clear cut that they will fall into my guidelines.

Our 1/2 Unit Play on Under in the white sox game lost and it went over in the 2nd:(

Our tracking setups Went 2-0 with the angels +169 winning 2-0 and San Diego -123 winning 8-6. San diego was looking grim as they fell behind 6-0 in the first.

Saturday MLB PLay
1/2 Unit
Mets +132

Tracking Setups ( I do not bet these)

Road Dog A
Angels +116

Home Dog %
Mets +132
San Fran +113

Its Week 3 in NFL Preseason and there are some pretty reliable setups that show up in week 3 and 4.

In Week 3 the only game I can find that is worth putting out as a setups is St Louis +6.5 ( I am not going to bet this)

There were 2 other games I was looking at …KC and Buffalo…But in KC the coaches win records in preseason are keeping me away from this setup…and in Buffalo ..washingtons head coach has a great record in preseason. So I am not going to put these two out as tracking setups.

Thats most likely it for today

Good Luck Today

    Dan,
    The way an NFL coach prepares for and approach the pre-season games is one of the top factors in handicapping these games.

    Ex: Mike Shanahan’s reg season record over past 6 years is 45-51 while his pre-season record during this time is 12-6 including 2-0 this season. Jim Schwartz career reg season career is 22-42 while his pre-season is 13-5. Bill Belichick is 112-32 over past 10 reg seasons yet only 27-25 in the pre-season.

    Note: Schwartz’ team beat Belichick’s 40-9 on Thursday night as 3-point home dogs. 😉

    I dunno. Sounds like arbitrary endpoints to be. I understand coaches playing a role, but it seems their actual records — if that’s a handicapping factor — are very visible public knowledge and already factored into the lines.
