Weekly Recap and Looking Ahead – 3/4

Weekly Recap and Looking Ahead – 3/4

People feel the passing of time in a variety of ways.  Some rely on the changes in weather as summer turns to fall.  Others may gauge time by watching their children grow or hit milestones.  As for me, my clock has always been driven by the sporting events that are dominating the landscape at the time.  The New Year is not marked by the dropping of the ball in Times Square or making resolutions, but by the start of the NFL playoffs and college bowl games.  It doesn’t feel like Fall because the temperature starts to drop, but rather when baseball teams start to eye the World Series.  Similarly, Spring arrives in full bloom, not with flowers, but with the start of the college basketball conference tournaments and the release of the March Madness bracket. I don’t know about you, but this college hoops season has been a blur.  Honestly, I think it has been an odd season for a number of reasons.  First of all, this year just lacks the star power of years past.  There’s no Zion Williamson,...

NCAAB Betting Primer

NCAAB Betting Primer

For the past decade, no sport has treated me and my bankroll better than college basketball.  Without question, the NCAAB season offers some of the best betting action on the market.  As a loyal KrackWins member, you know that above all else I preach money management and finding value over the long term.  College hoops is the best avenue in which to profit using these betting principles. While there are 130 FBS college football teams, there are 351 Division 1 college basketball teams.  This translates into an average of over 200 games on any given week.  On a busy weekend, there could be upwards of 120 games on the board.  What does that mean for you as a bettor? First, it means that there are a ton of opportunities for edges to be found and value to be had.  My team scours the board each and every day to find those games and then deliver them to our subscribers.  Being a sharp, winning bettor requires dedication and discipline over the long haul and no haul is longer (or more...

2019 Recap

2019 Recap

I doubt you would be surprised to know that my all-time favorite singer is Frank Sinatra.  With 2019 coming to a close and the time for reflection upon us all, a few classics from Old Blue Eyes resonated with me more than ever. We all know “My Way”, one of Frank’s biggest hits.  There’s nothing like being your own boss and not having to answer to someone, or be responsible for anyone’s success, other than my own.  That was how I lived my professional life for many years. While I certainly enjoyed the freedom, I always wondered what it would be like to be part of something bigger.   After turning down offers for years, I finally found the right team to help me share my takes on a larger scale, launching the KrackWins app. My number one goal was to be the go-to alternative to all the snake oil salesmen out there by providing valuable information that can actually sharpen bettors and help them build their bankroll.  Every single day, I feel responsible to you, the KrackWins user, and I...

NBA Primer

NBA Primer

Over the last decade, no sports league has grown in popularity more than the NBA.  Once thought to be impossible, the League is now rivaling the NFL.  The NBA appeals to a larger overall audience than the NFL, especially with younger fans.  The players are more recognizable and their expressions are there for all to see on every play.  NBA players have become fashion icons and social media stars, which connects them with younger fans and fans around the world.  Basketball has become a truly global sport. The NBA also is ahead of the curve in terms of innovation.  In the wake of the Supreme Court's ruling, the NBA was out in front again, announcing a partnership with MGM allowing it to use NBA logos and highlights in its materials.  The NBA is fully embracing legalized sports betting, which in turn will facilitate even greater interest in the League. The NBA was one of the first sports I bet professionally when I first moved to Las Vegas nearly twenty years ago.  At that time, the...

NFL Primer

NFL Primer

You’ve been patiently waiting for months.  Since the confetti fell onto Tom Brady for the umpteenth time last February, you have been waiting for this day to come...and now, when the Bears and Packers kickoff tonight, it is finally here – the NFL season.  Baseball’s moniker of “America’s Pastime” is just that – past time, as the NFL has dominated our country’s sporting consciousness for years.  With the Supreme Court ruling last year opening the door for the states to legalize sports gambling, you can expect the NFL’s popularity to grow even more. Now, we all know that by a wide margin, the NFL is the public’s favorite sport to bet.  But, what most people don’t know, is that it’s also the toughest to beat.  Tight lines and traps lure the public towards danger each week.  I have consistently won on the NFL over the past 25 years by doing it my way: focusing on NFL totals, teasers, individual player props, and future bets throughout the year.  A few words to the wise for surviving (and...

I wasn’t a big fan of math in school.  I hated Algebra although, to be honest, I wasn’t terrible at it.  When I graduated high school, I remember being so happy that math was in my rear view.  Little did I know that my calling as a professional...
