Italy vs Portugal: Gli Azzurri Favored Over Ronaldo-less Navigators in Milan

It can be dangerous for athletes to read their press clippings. That’s one of the oldest truisms in sports, though in the 21st century, “press clippings” can be updated to “social media feeds.” For instance, Liverpool attacker Muhamad Salah has appeared to humble-brag after getting compared to Messi and Ronaldo following a stellar debut in […]

Arsenal vs Wolves: Handicapping Matchday 12 of the Premier League

Halloween in my hometown was a chilly, rainy affair, and it was clear that some youths spent more time bickering with their parents about umbrellas, rain boots and safety as opposed to spending all day in the makeup aisle. Many student-athletes dressed up as themselves, in their own sports gear. Because soccer is still a […]

Premier League Soccer: Chelsea vs Everton Betting Lines and Analysis

As fine a football club as Chelsea may be, I would have been surprised to see this line forecasted at a (-1 ½) goal spread for the Blues back when the season began. Led by its young sensation Richarlison, Everton began the 2018-19 Premier League campaign with high hopes. The club’s 9th position after 11 […]

Nations League Betting Preview: Netherlands vs France

There are trends that are significant and should always affect the betting odds (and wagers placed) such as a team losing 10 matches in a row at an opposing club or national team’s host venue. There are trends that are not so significant, like a team having lost 4 matches in a row on leap […]

Huddersfield vs Fulham Odds: Premier League Preview and Best Bet

Tsk, tsk, MyBookie. You know we love your easy-to-navigate and ultra-reliable sports betting site (and the fact that unlike some other gambling pages, it’s just a sports-and-culture betting site and not a “side business” sportsbook attached to an online poker table and casino) but we’ve got to have a talk about these Premier League matches. […]

UEFA Champions League: Atlético Madrid vs Dortmund Betting Lines

Most international sports enjoy some down-time after huge events. They don’t even play a World Baseball Classic every season, and best-on-best FIBA basketball tournaments are rare to the point of near-extinction. The IIHF calendar goes into a deep swoon after the World Championships in spring, with only reserve and youth teams iced in late summer […]

Tottenham vs Man City: Citizens Favored at Wembley Stadium

My long experience as an NFL, NBA and MLB handicapper sometimes clashes with my newfound role as a Premier League pundit. For instance, the idea of referring to team nicknames in the abstract, not always with a “the” attached to represent talking about an actual roster of players. For instance, I erroneously called Tottenham’s squad […]

Sunday Premier League: Everton vs Crystal Palace Gambling Odds and Pick

Sportsbooks tend to stick with the tried and true, or at least the style of market that has always worked for their betting site individually in the past. A notable exception to this rule was when Bovada Sportsbook overhauled their site map earlier in 2018, but in reality, the changes are mostly cosmetic, and the […]

Chelsea vs Manchester United: Complete Preview, Moneyline and Prop Betting

I’m finding it gainful to look back at my preseason predictions and recent picks, and examine what went wrong with the bad ones. Though I’m definitely coasting above .500 on the year in football and soccer, there’s a difference between choosing a few good bets here and there and providing the best handicapping touts on […]

UEFA Nations League: Croatia vs England Vegas Odds and Match Prediction

I’m feeling right at home handicapping the 2018-19 UEFA Nations League. Why? Because at last, the soccer community and the betting public are each as totally lost as I am. My winning record on World Cup picks and futures was not a product of great experience handicapping FIFA. In fact, I would argue the opposite […]

Liverpool vs Manchester City: Reds vs Sky Blues has Las Vegas Guessing

I’ve been going with shorter Friday posts on occasion, because by this point in the week, I think the world is probably as ready to hurry up and get on with its sports-watching weekend as I am. But you’ll have to bear with me for just a few moments. I’ve got something to say about […]

AFC Bournemouth vs Crystal Palace: Vegas Odds on Monday’s Match

In case you didn’t notice, I’m fond of the long blog-post format. Do I like to read my own writing? Hopefully. Do I like to express an opinion? Sure. But the main reason a handicapping story doesn’t get the job done if it’s too short and abbreviated isn’t necessarily that it doesn’t go in-depth enough. […]

EPL Matchday 7: Betting Value on Newcastle United vs Leicester City

You know it’s been a lousy September when a 0-0 draw with a comparable side tastes like manna from heaven. Newcastle United has not claimed 3 points in any of 6 Premier League matches so far. The Magpies’ miserable 0-2-4 record has been punctuated by fouls, cards, missed opportunities and close-shave losses which have frustrated […]
