LOSING FOOTBALL TEAMS HAVE TROUBLE GETTING UP AROUND THE HOLIDAYS

With Thanksgiving coming up in less than a week, I'm paying very close attention to a strategy that's worked very well for me over the years in a variety of sports.

GO AGAINST TEAMS WITH NOTHING TO PLAY FOR AROUND THE HOLIDAYS!

Thanksgiving is the juiciest of the holidays for football bettors using this approach because you have college and pro teams who are very clear qualifiers. When you get to Christmas and New Year's, the NFL season is mostly over...and the only dispirited college teams are those who are disappointed about the bowl they're going to. At Thanksgiving, you have two weeks of NFL teams you can fade (before and after Turkey Day), as well as two weeks of college teams who won't qualify for a bowl, and aren't playing a long time rival in at least one of the two Saturdays surrounding the holiday.

With that in mind, I strongly suggest you sit down right now and make two lists:

  • All the college teams playing Saturday November 20th and at any time next week who can't qualify for a bowl game, and aren't playing an archrival that day.
  • All the pro teams playing this week and next who are below .500, and clearly out of their divisional race.

As handicappers, you have to give yourself freedom to tweak the list. Maybe the Dallas Cowboys are going to show some emotion because they're happy about the recent coaching change to Jason Garrett. They won't throw in the towel right now because the upset over the Giants got their season back on track. Fine. I can see that. But, there are obviously other pro teams who are in the doldrums to begin with, and may be particularly disinterested in giving peak intensity and focus around a holiday.

And, college teams? I could name at least one in every board conference, and more than a dozen across the country who are prime candidates for at least one no-show performance in the next 10 days.

I'm not going to provide a list here because that would give too much information to oddsmakers about my plans for this week and next. I'm not saying I'll fade everybody who might qualify for this strategy. But, it's VERY likely that some of my biggest releases (PERFECT PLAYS, any GAME OF THE YEAR selections) will be asking for a quality team to rout an opponent that won't be showing up to battle. I've told you where the money is...I'm not going to walk you there and put it in your wallet for you.

Well, if you sign up for my service, I actually WILL do just about that! My clients will get my top opinions Saturday in the colleges, Sunday and Monday in the NFL, and then all through Thanksgiving weekend. You can purchase game day releases here at the website a few hours before kickoff (that can be very handy if you're travelling over Thanksgiving...be sure to have your credit card AND your laptop with you). Seasonal packages are value priced since we're so deep into the 2010 campaign now. Details about those are available online, or you can call the office at 1-877-766-8946

In the next several days, I'll have:

  • SHOCK THE SYSTEM upset calls on college underdogs who I know will prioritize a game against a rival...but possibly MAJOR RELEASE BLOWOUT calls against those very same teams either the week before or after the big rivalry game.
  • SHOCK THE SYSTEM upset calls with quality NFL underdogs who should be getting more respect in the line than they have been...but MAJOR RELEASE BLOWOUT calls against other dogs who will be down by scores like 31-10 or 34-7 in the third quarter.

I'm THE KING OF UPSETS because my documented lifetime record on outright winners is unmatched...but I'M THE KING OF LAS VEGAS because I also win with a lot of favorites too! We'll be cashing tickets with both starting TODAY.

And we'll continue cashing them in football on almost a daily basis from now through what's shaping up as a historic Thanksgiving Weekend that's fast approaching. I STRONGLY ENCOURAGE you to spend the next several football days attacking the big board with WAYNE ALLYN ROOT!
