Are You Ready for Some Football?

The time has come that we've all been waiting for. Fall is in the air, the coeds are back on campus, and footballs are flying nationwide. As much as we like major league baseball, college and pro basketball, and the NHL, nothing compares to football season. The NFL is the undisputed king of sports betting and handicapping and for good reason. Compared to college football and basketball there are far fewer teams in the NFL to track and analyze and there is much less player turnover in the NFL. Also, there is not the daily grind associated with games everyday as there is in the other sports. That said, you still have to do your homework. The old timers will tell you that you should lay off for the first few weeks and see what the teams look like--you shouldn't be basing your decisions on how the teams played last year and you need some time to see how the teams play this year. However, you can hit big early in the season if you have insight and sound analysis on your side. That's where Capece Sports comes in. When betting pro football, in addition to analyzing matchups and team stats, you  also have to understand how public perception influences the oddsmakers, especially for the big market teams. At Capece sports we are looking at all aspects. So, even if you take it slow early in the season, you still need sound handicapping advice. Remember, even a little action on a game makes it much more interesting and fun to watch. Waking up on saturday morning, checking the lines and weather reports and putting a little action on the saturday afternoon college games is an American tradition! Betting on college football is different than betting on the NFL. There is much less parity in college because of the constant player turnover. However, as with the NFL, all the relevant stats have to be analyzed and adjusted to suit the situation--you can't just look at the polls and the line. Bottom line, keep it real, stay within your limits, do your homework, and let's make money together. Come get some!

Take Me out to the Ballgame

by Capece 6. July 2009 07:06



 
Sitting poolside the other day, sipping my drink and taking a long draw on my San Cristobal El Morro, it occurred to me that the only two days of the year that there aren't any regular or preseason professional U.S. sporting events are the days before and after the MLB Allstar Game. That means, when action is your income, you've got to get a piece of the Midsummer Classic. Talk about baseball running in streaks, the AL currently is on a 12 game unbeaten streak and are 17-3-1 since 1988 winning the last three games by just one run. The AL streak follows a NL streak tht saw the NL win 22 of 25 over the years 1963 to 1987 with the NL winning 11 in row starting in 1963. As usual both teams are loaded, but three of the AL sluggers, Jason Bay (BOS), Josh Hamilton (TEX), and Evan Longoria (TB) have been slowing down going into the final week before the game and Mark Texiera (NY) has cooled off following a scorching June. We will keep an eye on them. Both teams have plenty of pitching with Zack Greinke (KC) and Roy Halladay (TOR) taking a back seat to nobody. NL starters Tim Lincecum (SF), Matt Cain (SF), Josh Johnson (FL), and Chad Billingsley (LA) are an outstanding group of young hurlers. Will the NL finally end the AL winning streak? No team has ever one more than 11 in a row--2002 was a tie. Will the NL ever be the home team in a World Series? Will "Capece Sports" be named the most interesting handicappers in the world? For the answer to these and all other questions, stay tuned for our Allstar Game picks whether you are gonna play the moneyline, the runline, or the totals. And let's make some money because that's what its all about...
 
Come get some! Zeke
