  • Wiseguy Report: NFL Sharp/Square Divide

    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.  

  • Week 4 NFL Power Rankings

    The Patriots hold on to the top spot for the fourth consecutive week in our latest Power Rankings, but the Cardinals, Bills and Falcons all make moves up the board after impressive wins in Week 3.

  • Wiseguy Report: College Football ATS Disasters

    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.

About Teddy

Name: Teddy Covers

Age: 47

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 about Teddy in the New York Times here, here, here and here.

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.

Quote: "I’ve been able to survive and thrive here in Las Vegas as a professional bettor for the last 17 years. I take pride in helping my clients become successful sports bettors themselves, earning a long term profit through sports investing.”
