    How To Beat the Pro Football Pointspread
    How To Beat the Pro Football Pointspread is a brilliant book. I'm recommending it to all my friends. You certainly did raise the bar. I've read every NFL handicapping book available -- Lem Banker, Phil Steele, Mike Lee, Jerry Higgins, J.R. Miller, Richard Ross, Jim Barnes, John Painter, Jerry Patterson, Wayne Alyn Root, Tony Salinas, Kelso Sturgeon, Art Glantz (a good friend), Alan Pesin, Andy Isko, Marc Lawrence, Kevin O'Neil, Dr. Bob, etc. -- and I have to rate your book the best...I'm already using it to prepare for next season. Looking forward to your Zone Blitz report in August!
    -- Mike

    I am on Chapter 13 of your new book and I just wanted to let you know that it is in my top 4 for best book I ever read. I have read about 15 books on sports betting and this is the best one I have read on that topic by far. It is very well written, the facts are amazing, the research put into the book is obviously top notch, and the approach you take to analyzing NFL games is awesome. I have already applied some of your NFL techniques to NBA and NCAAB and the results have been positive...This book has truly inspired me to becoming a more in depth researcher, and I believe it will really pay dividends this coming NFL season. I am so excited for the schedule to come out so I can start my ''spring mini camp.'' I have also begun to analyze coaching and personnel moves this offseason more than ever before, and I am excited to look at some key statistical categories from last year with a new vision based on your writings...Thank you so much for writing this book. I can't tell you how many points in your book are just amazing. I was underlining and highlighting things on almost every page it seemed!

    ''...There were so many things I took out of your book. Things that I had thought about before but had no idea how to implement so thank you for your insight. -- All the best,

    NFL & CF Stats

    by Bobby Smith
    Sports Reporter Editor

    So, when do you think that the 49ers and Browns will win a game? Last year, the Browns went all the way to the home finale in Week 16 before they won, drawing poor San Diego, who had to fly into Cleveland on Christmas week, play on Christmas Eve when they were a lousy 5-9 and eliminated from everything including their home city. The Chargers were also coming off a 19-16 home loss to division-rival Oakland, to further add to their miserable state.

    Unless I’m missing somebody, Cleveland went through five quarterbacks last season: Griffin III, McCown, Kessler, Whitehurst and Hogan. This season, they have used three: Kizer, Hogan, Kessler. The team’s TD-INT ratio on offense is 7-17. Last season, it was 15-14. We are moving backwards here! Which probably should have been expected when they drafted and decided to start Kizer, a rookie quarterback who left college early.

    A year ago at this time, in my role as a Ben McAdoo not-liker, I would point out to friends that the New York Giants’ defense was on the field longer than any other unit except for the 49ers and Browns, who were the two worst teams in the NFL in 2016. This was while the Giants were on their way to winning 11 games and making the playoffs. My mantra was, 'Just wait, you will see.' The Giants’ offense, trailing only 7-6 at Green Bay in the Wild Card game, was unable to make a first down near the end of the half, forcing that defense back on the field for a final-drive, Aaron Rodgers Hail Mary touchdown pass that gave Green Bay a lead they would build on in the second half.
