About Teddy

Name: Teddy Covers

Age: 50

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 hereherehere and here

Teddy’s NBA expertise?  Read about it here.

Teddy has been on CBS talking March Madness, on CNBC talking legalized gambling, on Bloomberg TV talking NFL.  He’s been featured in an ESPN 30-for-30 and on ESPN.com, as well as numerous other features over the years.  Teddy has become a national figure in the sportsbetting world because he’s earned it; 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 arguably the best write-ups in the business about my own personal wagers for my clients.

Systems used for handicapping a game: The betting markets tend to be very re-active, focusing on what has already happened.  Teddy looks to be pro-active, taking advantage of mispriced teams in the betting markets again and again as the markets struggle to adjust to current realities.  I also 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 rate my plays as follows:

- Action bets: 8*’s (standard plays) and 9*’s (a notch or two stronger) are the vast majority of my wagers

- ‘Big Ticket’ plays: My strongest wagers are ‘Big Tickets’; rated as 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’ big blowouts waiting to happen, and ‘Wrong Team Favored’ reports supporting live underdogs!

During football season, Teddy tends to release between 12-18 NFL and college football plays per week – he’s no action junkie, but he’s prepared to pull the trigger on any and every ‘positive expectation’ wager that he can find.  During basketball season, Teddy usually releases between 15-20 selections per week.  MLB is a little bit lighter; in the 10-15 bets per week range.

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 trend 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 thrive here in Las Vegas as a professional bettor for 20 years. I take pride in helping my clients become successful sports bettors themselves, earning a long term profit through professional level sports investing.”
