1. If you can try to find a conference or 2 you're good in. Since you're in Texas maybe big-12/c-usa/SEC or whatever one you want

2. Try to get some publications on college football. Phil Steele's Lindy's etc

3. Find a team before the season you think will be undervalued. LY before the season i thought Rutgers was underrated i bet i think 6 or 7 of their games and won 5 or 6. Same with a team you think will be overrated

4. Never be afraid to bet a total. When you win the guy who won 100 on Tulane gets paid the same amount as the guy who wins 100 on mich,nebarska going over

5. A lot of guys sometimes forget this you can bet on smaller conferences too. Onsaturday a texas winner gets paid just like the winner on Rice. they won't go you bet Rice you only get half the money

6. If you lose pay on time. Will they pay you on time if you win? IDK but pay them on time when you lose

7. Obviously bet what you can afford to lose

8. Something i saw last year a lot of bets on weekday games between 2 teams where you can't name 5 of their players. Treat the wednesday game like a saturday game. Ask yourself if this mac game was saturday would i bet it

9. When in doubt on a game skip it

10. Hang out on here Join us during in game threads. We have fun We had some good ones like NIU-Toledo

basically wreck its fun there are now 124 teams. 2 new ones from your state in texas state and UTSA.Have fun pay on time and win. Hope i helped and GL

Welcome ,good tips

Start throwing darts 


Sometimes the odds are better doing that than picking... 



Don't bet money you don't have... and don't be afraid to lose because you will have a bad day/week... we all have them

Wreck,are you sure you REALLY want to get into this?
Sportsbetting can break you heart.It's worse than dating!
HOWEVER,when you understand the process and begin
to make it work for you THEN it all makes sense.My best
recommendation is that you become a student of the game
and understand the technical aspects of winning football
games.Then develop your own power ratings or a system
for evaluating point spread differentials.Until you develop
your own system to to handicap games that you can trust,
you will be dependent on others.NOT A GOOD PLACE.
Good handicapping requires hard work and long hours.
After a while if you persevere,it will all make sense.It took
me 15 years to " Get It" I hope it does not take you that long.

Do not let the "wise guys" lead you into a bad position.
They make mistakes too! Develop your own lines and
you will prosper.

One more thing. Keep meticulous records of your selections
and your results.If you are not succeeding you will need to
adjust your selection criteria.Remember that you need to be
52.34% correct to break even.be honest with your results and
adjust accordingly.Good Luck!

If  you know your accuracy rate and you are above 52.34%
I will then discuss the " Kelly Criterion"and "optimum betting'
with you.Have a great season,God Bless.
