How to Beat the Pro Football Pointspread: A Comprehensive, No-Nonsense Guide to Picking NFL Winners

In this second edition that takes into consideration the perpetually evolving NFL rules, How to Beat the Pro Football Pointspread continues to set bettors on a confidence-building path lined with high-priority realities that for decades have flown under the typical football bettor’s radar.

Smith emphasizes that pure football knowledge must be absorbed and then applied to the world of point spreads. He teaches his readers to look at the game with the bettor’s eye instead of the fan’s, and explains his theories about reasonable statistical expectations and ways to challenge the oddsmakers. He also discusses the implications of coaching styles, stadium locations, and even the weather on each bet made throughout the season.

With years of football betting under his belt, Smith has written a key resource for anyone wagering on America’s most popular sport.

there are some good points (don’t bet an underdog unless you think they … The Amazon Reviews on this book are similar to the writing style of this author: full of hyperbole and not enough substance. Granted, there are some good points (don’t bet an underdog unless you think they can win, the “spread score,” schedules, weather and playing surfaces), but enough already… I kept waiting for the author to talk about beating the point spread and betting ATS (against the spread). No mention of parlays, teasers, or over/under? I’m sure this author is too much a…

MUST READ Book for All Sports Bettors! This is a superb book on the art of football handicapping. The author presents numerous handicapping techniques and illustrates them with concrete examples. Were you shocked by Seattle dismantling Denver in the 2013 Super Bowl? You wouldn’t have been if you’d read the preface to this book. Remember when Bill Parcells took over as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys and rattled off a 5-2 SUATS record to start the season? You’ll know why (and how you could have profited from it) when you read…

One of the very best books on sports betting This is one of the best books on football handicapping. It contains many novel betting angles you wont find anywhere else. The section on graphing a teams performance against the spread over the course of the season is worth the price of the book alone. The section of money management is mathematically correct. Almost all authors promote Kelly betting (varying the size of your bet) which will bankrupt you no matter how good your handicapping. The only flaw in the book is that the…
