|Rarely do I visit covers...this is why I'm so late in responding to this thread.

I live the dream you're talking about. However, it really is more a labor of love.
Every single day, I look at every game in every major US sport: baseball, football, hockey, hoop, both college and pro, both side and total.
I might find two plays on a weekday (sometimes zero) and four on a weekend (sometimes only two).
You can do it. But it requires a single-minded dedication, a short memory and an unshakable belief in yourself. Once you listen to the sharps, or worry about covers experts, you're dead.
Here is my most important tip: JUST PICK WINNERS! once you get involved in the spread, you're dead. Coaches don't care about the line (though many believe they do), they only care about winning the game. If this means having to play a two-teamer to drive down the chalk, then do it.
I would say "good luck" to you, but it's important that luck be kept to an absolute minimum.
