  • MLB Cheat Sheets: July 6-9

    While Clayton Kershaw continues to struggle, Zack Greinke is stealing the show out west in LA. He's leading the major leagues with a 1.48 ERA, and he's now gone 27 2/3 innings without surrendering a run. He'll have an excellent chance to extend that run at home against the Phillies on Thursday.

  • Top 5 MLB "Jekyll & Hyde" Pitchers Since 2012

    If you're betting on Major League Baseball, paying attention to split stats is an absolute must. Even the best players in the game have their weaknesses, and there may be situations when the overall numbers are misleading. For example, certain pitchers are better at night than they are in the day, or vice versa.

Achievements in handicapping: To some, it may appear that Jesse came out of nowhere to take the handicapping world by storm in 2012. While it was his first year as a "pro", Jesse has been a player behind the scenes for nearly two decades. He hasn't wasted any time making a name for himself, especially on the gridiron. He had another very profitable football season in 2013, capped off by going 15-5 in the NFL playoffs.

Biggest Win of 2012: On the final Sunday of the 2012 NFL regular season, Jesse loaded up with three plays on the late game. It was a primetime rivalry matchup between the Cowboys and the Redskins, with the winner booking a ticket to the post-season, and the loser going golfing. Washington won the game 28-18, and Jesse nailed all three plays with Washington, Washington for the first half, and the under. It was an exclamation point on a very successful NFL season, hitting over 57% for the year, and finishing strong with nearly $10,000 in profits in December alone.

Biggest Loss of 2012: The West Virginia Mountaineers were a double digit dog at home versus Oklahoma on November 17. Jesse had the Mountaineers +10.5 as a FREE play, but he felt so strongly that West Virginia had a good chance of winning outright, he released a paid play on the moneyline, with the dog paying out over 3-1. West Virginia scored the go ahead touchdown with under three minutes to play, but Landry Jones led the Sooners back, scoring in the dying seconds as Oklahoma won the game by a single point 50-49.

Handicapping Methodology: Jesse is not a believer in systems, programs and number crunching formulas to handicap games. He is firm in his belief that you are not playing against the sportsbook, you are playing against the other punters (sports bettors). Many of Schule's plays are based on a psychological analysis of the general public's lack of knowledge and understanding of the ins and outs of sports wagering. (Its a whole lot more complicated than just fading the public!) He also relies on a nearly photographic memory with an uncanny ability to tell you a players history and stats dating back for decades. Anyone can look up the statistics and tell you how many touchdowns a guy has scored, Jesse can also tell you about the ones that he almost scored.

Play Ratings: Jesse has been known to make some very large wagers over the years, some of which would not necessarily follow a traditional money management system. Over time, however, he has become far more disciplined, rigidly so. Plays will range from 5-10 stars. Jesse recommends betting 2% of bankroll on his 10* plays and half as much (1%) for his 5* plays.

Here are a few of Schule's most popular plays:

"Total Recall Teminator" - Jesse's signature totals play, the Terminator has established a reputation as one of the most consistent winners in Schule's repertoire.

"Afternoon Executioner" - Schule loves to kick off the day with an early winner, his "Afternoon Executioner" is always a play on one of the early afternoon games.

"Primetime Punisher" - Everybody loves to get involved in a wager on the nationally televised main events, and Schule delivers with his PRIMETIME PUNISHER!

"Gridiron Guillotine" - These are Jesse's top pigskin picks, normally reserved for 10* plays on sides.

"Primo Tempo" - Last, but certainly not least, Schule's signature halftime play, "PrimoTempo" means halftime in Italian. They can include 1st (or 2nd) half plays in football and Basketball, or 5-inning plays in baseball. These plays are often the most popular picks on Jesse's card, no surprise there, as everybody loves a winner.

Teams He Likes To Bet On Or Against: Jesse is fond of saying that his favorite team is the one that cashed his last winning ticket. He doesn't have favorites, and he will bet on or against any team at any given time. That being said, he does tend to develop a feel for certain teams, normally based on what he considers to be an error in public perception. If he sees a team that is overrated, or underrated, he will ride that team until it pays. He finds that the public are often slow to catch on when a big favorite starts to decline, or a new up and coming powerhouse is emerging. Getting in on these shifts in the balance of power in the early days, often comes with big rewards.
