I'll answer your question by quickly listing the merits of each:
1) Lindy's: First-rate analysis for all 32 teams, plus a roster list that comes in extremely handy once injuries set in. You can make notes and adjust the roster lists, which alone makes it worth much more than the cost of the magazine. Available on Amazon
2) Marc's Playbook Annual: First-rate analysis for all 32 pro teams, PLUS over 100 college teams, PLUS a ton of handicapping info in the back, PLUS literally hundreds (thousands) of team and coaching trends. Available from Marc's site plus Amazon.
3) Week One NFL Winners: First-rate analysis for all 16 Week One games, plus a ton of handicapping info and articles. Stuff in here you won't find , not even on the internet. Available on Amazon.
4) How to Beat the Pro Football Pointspread: One of the best football handicapping books available, with a great chapter on totals and another on coaching history.
If you read, process and apply the information in these four sources, and practice proper money management, you are almost guaranteed to have a winning season. But you have to read and comprehend the information. Sports betting is not for the feeble or lazy. It takes work, properly applied.
