Recommendation: Take Purdue (#314)
The betting markets play very close attention to NFL injuries, with the lines swinging fairly significantly on gameday based on player availability. But in college football, the betting markets only seem to react significantly when there is a quarterback injury that sidelines an effective starter.
That’s how we see lines like this one, with Minnesota as road favorites as they travel to West Lafayette to take on Purdue this Saturday.
The Gophers have a third year starter at QB in Mitch Leidner. But Leidner has been completely ineffective – only 91 completed passes for 950 yards and four TD’s in their first five games of the season – because of the injuries surrounding him. He’s not fully healthy either. Head coach Jerry Kill: “He’s been beat up. You get hit — and we’ve been beat up on the offensive line — and he’s taken some shots. And you take those kinds of shots, your body wears down. So it’s been tough on him. I don’t think there’s any question about it.”
20 Gopher players missed practice on Wednesday due to injuries, including four starting offensive linemen and secondary studs Briean Boddy-Calhoun and Damarious Travis. Kill’s quote speaks volumes about why the Gophers have no business as road chalk at Purdue: “I’ve never seen anything like it in my 32 years of coaching. Just one of those years. What do you do? Like I tell our guys, ‘You can’t get down. You just coach them.’ We’re going to play with some young players probably, and that’s part of it. They’ll have to grow up, and we’ll be better down the road for it.”
Purdue hung tough with Minnesota last year, leading most of the game before a late Gopher field goal gave Minnesota a one point victory as 12.5 point favorites. And there’s no reason to think the Boilermakers can’t hang tough again, with frosh QB David Blough rallying the team from a 24-0 deficit at Michigan State last week, giving Purdue a legitimate spark. And with frosh RB Markell Jones coming off his best game -- 157 rushing yards against the Spartans elite defense – a Purdue team that hasn’t had much to be excited about in recent seasons has some legitimate positive momentum right now. Expect the outright upset! Take Purdue.

Wiseguy Report: NFL Sharp/Square Divide
Oct 5, 2015
On Twitter every Sunday, there’s always significant discussion of what the NFL ‘sharp/square divide’ games are for that day. There’s an old quote from legendary Vegas oddsmaker Jimmy Vaccaro that goes like this: “Squares bet teams, sharps bet numbers.” And there’s plenty of truth to that quote.

Wiseguy Report: College Football ATS Disasters
Sep 28, 2015
But what about the teams at the other end of the spectrum; the early season ATS bottom feeders? New Mexico State, Central Florida, San Diego St, Akron, Old Dominion, Cincinnati, Auburn, Arizona State, Missouri and Michigan State all opened with 0-3 ATS marks. The vast majority of those teams went to 0-4 ATS last Saturday.
Name: Teddy Covers
Years in handicapping: After graduating from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, I moved to Las Vegas to bet on sports as a full time professional in 1998. I’ve been doing it successfully here in Sin City ever since.
Achievements in Handicapping: Some ‘cappers need a detailed biography. Teddy doesn’t – a quick google search shows quite clearly how big of an impact this longtime Las Vegas professional has had in the sportsbetting world since moving to Vegas to become a full time bettor back in 1998.
You can watch Teddy here during the week of the Super Bowl in the sportsbetting documentary ‘Life on the Line’.
You can read Teddy’s college basketball analysis on ESPN.com here.

Teddy talking NFL? How about these links from Bloomberg TV!!
Teddy talking March Madness? How about on CBS!
The list goes on and on. Teddy gets the national publicity because he’s earned it; delivering a career filled with very satisfied clients…..
Why I like Covers Experts: It’s very simple – if I don’t win, I don’t get paid. Pay after you win (guaranteed picks) makes me feel very comfortable about providing information and write-ups about my own personal wagers for my clients.
Systems used for handicapping a game: I use a combination of fundamental (breaking down the matchups on the field/court), situational (finding great 'spots' for blowouts and/or upsets and technical (angles and trends that exist for a reason) handicapping. I’m also a firm believer in ‘riding’ hot teams and ‘fading’ cold ones, taking advantage again and again until the betting markets finally catch up.
I rate my plays as follows:
- Action bets: 6*, 7* or 8*’s are the vast majority of my wagers
- ‘Big Ticket’ plays: My strongest wagers are ‘Big Tickets’; rated as 9* or 10* plays. Only about one play in 20 receives a ‘Big Ticket’ designation.
- My signature plays also include ‘Sin City Sizzlers’ – wiseguy plays direct from Vegas, my ‘Absolute Annihilator’ Reports – big blowouts waiting to happen, and ‘Wrong Team Favored’ reports supporting live underdogs!
During football season, Teddy tends to release between 3-5 NFL plays per week and between 5-10 college football plays – he’s no action junkie, but he’s prepared to pull the trigger on any and every ‘positive expectation’ wager that he can find.
Favorite stats/pages on Covers.com: I use the matchup pages every single day for college basketball and major league baseball. There is no other website like it, with all the pertinent information on a single page. The series history between the two teams; their season long statistics and their recent five game trends; great stuff like rebounding margin, assist to turnover ratio, and free throw shooting percentage are all broken down in an easy to use format. Also, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the umpire data for baseball, a crucial factor in my success betting baseball totals.
