MIKE'S PICKS

Sports handicapping advice and picks from a future professional sports handicapper.

Name:
Location: Lighthouse Point, Florida, United States

I am a corporate attorney with an MBA in finance. I've practiced since 1993. Currently I work for a high-tech company that focuses primarily on intellectual property development, technology licensing and venture capital transactions. In my spare time I am studying several so-called "advantage play" techniques as they relate to sports handicapping. I hope to someday pursue sports handicapping full time. Sportsbook managers, consider yourselves duly warned.

Picks: NFL Preseason 8-5-2005

My first two NFL selections of the year will involve the first preseason game. First, I'm going to play the Colts/Falcons to go Under 42 (-105). Notwithstanding the NFL's desire to show off its product in Japan, I think we'll see very little Peyton or Vick. Also, customarily, the defenses are usually much further ahead in terms of preparation than the offenses at this early stage and both teams are tired due to the long flight and time-zone differential. Plus, I like the number. The total "42" puts me past several of the key totals.

In addition to this, I'm using the Falcons +8.5 as one-half of a two team, six point teaser. The other half will be taking the Bears +7.5 over the Dolphins. I don't understand why the Dolphins would be a favorite in Canton. In any case, that's play #2 for the year, and this two team, six point teaser is priced at (Even).

Current YTD Record on Posted Selections:
NFL Preseason: 0 Wins, 0 Losses, 0 Pushes. Bankroll = Even.
MLB: 7 Wins, 6 Losses, 0 Pushes. Bankroll = +1.77 Units.
