Pittsburgh Steelers NFL Updates

A few days ago we had a post in the forums about the jersey numbers that the Steelers 2012 rookies and free agents will wear during the offseason and possibly into the 2012 season too. These are always subject to change as players get cut, and someone else tries to get their preferred number, the young guys try to get their favorite number away from a veteran before the season starts, etc.  Plus with rosters up to 90 players now there’s only so many numbers to go around per position in the offseason.

A few changes that I took notice of rather quickly:

-4th round draft pick Alameda Ta’amu will wear #95. Personally I’ve always been partial to 95 as a linebackers number. Some numbers just fit for a certain position. That’s the Greg Lloyd homer in me though I guess.

-Baron Batch will wear #20 this year, formally Bryant McFadden’s number who was released earlier this offseason.

-3rd round draft pick Sean Spence will wear the James Farrior #51 jersey.

-Corbin Bryant is wearing #91, Aaron Smith’s old number.

-Chris Rainey, 5th round draft pick will wear 22, Will Gay’s old number.

This list comes from Ed Bouchette via his blog, which is a great resource and only costs very little per month compared to the insight he gives. Check out the full post with the full listing of number changes.

Porter Stansberry NewAmerica, Stansberry’s Investment Advisory

Porter Stansberry is an online stock and investment handicapper. He is demonstrative that much like the sports handicapper industry, stock tipsters who have the best results may not always have the most honest approach.

His tactics have been questioned by many. His results second-guessed by fewer.

What makes investing in the sports betting markets a wiser venture than gambling on stocks and gold is that manipulating the markets on Wall Street is against SEC regulations, but a skill in sports wagering.

Oddsmakers create inefficiencies that can and are exploited by the learned.

Insider trading is utilized by professional gamblers though unlawful on the stock exchange. Ultimately the has the best portfolio for wise investors who prefer more reward than risk. No stock broker offers better long-term ROI.

It’s an indisputable fact that the top football handicappers are at, but now the secrets as to why they become the nation’s No. 1 sports handicapping website are out.

Radio Touts: Eddie Roman, Paul Nolan, Bobby Esposito, Fat Jack’s

Bobby Esposito is no Chuck Esposito. We heard several Stu Feiner discards on this Sports Investors Weekly radio show: Paul Nolan, Eddie Roman on VegasEdge and MVPWinners only to be followed by Fat Jack’s informercial pitch.

Heard some serious hard sell. For pure spread betting winners unlike any you have gotten before, it’s not the Ray Palmer investment group. Get all the football picks winners on the Network.

Brandon Lang, Al DeMarco Feud

Yes, the Brandon Lang-Al DeMarco feud made for some good fodder. Unfortunately Mr. Two For the Money undermined his own valid points about the envy directed at him with his vile personal attacks.

First that Steve Buden network of sites lost their best handicapper Matt Rivers. Now their marquee tout Brandon Lang has jumped ship. For sports betting videos that are informative, though not as comical, the YouTube Gambler’s Channel has it.

The Secret to Baseball Betting and Basketball Betting

Betting systems and a fantastic sports store show that the Network is more than just free sports picks

Any sports fan will tell you that baseball betting and basketball betting is far from easy. That MLB pick or NBA pick might look good on paper but in reality it can be difficult to pick a winner. Any gambler will tell you that reaching a success strike rate of 60-65% is considered good so when I heard about the John Morrison Sports Betting Champ system that boasted a strike rate of 97% I had to give it a serious look.

John Morrison is an Ivy League School graduate with a PHD in statistics and he used his enormous skills to develop the Sports Betting Champ system which focuses on baseball betting and basketball betting.

As well as his obvious talent for statistics John is also a fanatical sports fan and he decided to combine his lifelong passions for statistics and sport and explore the fascinating world of sports betting. Over a 10 year period he spent untold hours exhaustively researching the sporting database in an aspiring pursuit to develop the ultimate foolproof sports betting system.

The system is used to place bets on NBA Basketball and MLB Baseball but you do not need to know anything about baseball betting or basketball betting to benefit from the system or indeed know anything about these sports at all. Whilst I have become more interested in baseball and basketball since I started using the system at the beginning I certainly knew nothing about these sports whatsoever. Neither does it matter if you haven’t ever placed a bet before. All is explained and there are hundreds of websites where you can open an online betting account and place your bets with the click of your mouse.

The system is easy to grasp and even then, if you decide you don’t want to bother with learning the Sports Betting Champ system yourself, John Morrison will email all his baseball picks and basketball picks to you anyway.

The Record

John Morrison’s Sports Betting Champ system for baseball betting and basketball betting record dating back to 2003.

NBA Basketball:
2003-04 season: 68 wins – 2 Losses
2004-05 season: 71 wins – 3 Losses
2005-06 season: 66 wins – 2 Losses
2007-08 season: 80 wins – 1 Loss
2008-09 season: 78 wins – 0 Losses
(Current 2009-10 season: 25 wins – 0 Losses)

Betting on Baseball

Stevie Vincent is literally 20-25 years ahead of the oddsmakers and they will be the first to admit. His forensic sports handicapping is groundbreaking and there is nothing the books have been able to do to stop him.

Betting on baseball is becoming ever so popular, no surprise really as baseball betting really does afford good betting opportunities and is arguably easier than wagering on football games and other field sports.

There are two primary reasons why betting on baseball is something that all bettors ought to consider, most definitely, if you are a serious bettor with ambitions of making money long term.

Firstly, baseball is relatively simple to handicap as it falls into the low score genre of sports handicapping thus spread bettors and higher risk punters must look elsewhere for their fix.  Secondly, betting on baseball and odds compilation pivots around the pitcher. In baseball odds-setting, the scheduled pitcher is king, everything revolves around this guy. This is a tip in itself, get to know the pitchers, research them, read about them and learn their strengths and weaknesses.

When betting on baseball there are 3 opportunities, Totals, Run-lines and Money-lines. Let’s take them one-by-one.

Money Lines: Betting on baseball Money lines is easy, there are only 2 options and if you pick the winner of the game you collect. The Money line is represented by 2 numerics, one plus and one minus:

Baseball team one + 120

Baseball team two – 130

What this means is that team one is the outsider with a Money line of + 120, essentially this will give you $120 for every $100 dollars wagered (total returned for $100 wagered = $220).  On the other hand team two is the favorite (favorite is always minus) with a Money line of – 130, essentially this means you have to wager $130 to get $100 back (total returned for $130 wagered = $230)

As a final explanation of the odds, if you placed $100 on the favorite at odds of – 130, you would get back $177. This is deduced by the following: 100/130 + 1 – 1.7692, rounded up to 1.77).

The observant reader would have noted in the odds offered there is an inbuilt 3% profit for the bookmaker, (0.77 + 0.20 = 0.97) this is sometimes referred to as the juice, and granted an equal book the bookmaker is guaranteed to make 3% profit on all bets.

Totals or Under/Overs: Betting on baseball totals, also known as unders and overs is relatively straightforward. There are only 2 possibilities, under the predicted bookmakers total or over it. For instance if the bookmaker sets the totals at 9.50 , and 9 runs are scored, all punters who wagered unders are winners and similarly all bettors who wagered overs (hoping for 10 or more runs) are losers.

Betting unders and over’s can be lucrative, but do get to know the idiosyncrasies of different ballparks and pitchers as these are the 2 most important factors in this type of bet.

And finally, from a betting perspective, Run-lines.

Run Lines: Betting on baseball run-lines is also a simple affair, 2 options means you win or you lose. Here’s how it works.  The bookmaker will give the favorite a bit more work to do by handicapping the team with minus 1.5 runs and similarly give the underdog a start by giving them 1.5 runs before a ball has been pitched.  The run lines will come in brackets before the price offered, for example:

Baseball team one (+ 1.5) – 130

Baseball Team two ( – 1.50 + 120

The striking obvious is the favorite actually pays more than the underdog. Of course this is because they are playing with a theoretical handicap of minus 1.50 runs. Betting on baseball run lines is arguably the most difficult to get right, and most times it’s better to stick with the unders or overs bet. The only exception is when the bookmaker makes a perceived odds error and offers what appears a value pick based on the odds offered (by value pick I mean odds offered which are in your opinion greater than the actual chance of it happening. For instance, just like being offered odds of   + 110 for the toss of a coin.)
