    The undefeated Patriots still rank #1, but their raw numbers have clearly been in decline in recent weeks.  Tampa Bay and Dallas both made big power rating jumps this week, while San Fran, San Diego and Baltimore all tumbled down the bottom.  Get Teddy's rankings and key tidbits for all 32 teams right here!

  • Wiseguy Report: NFL Notes & Quotes

    It’s Week 12 already. Thanksgiving is upon us.  All the NFL Bye weeks are in the rear view mirror, with every team still having exactly six games remaining in the regular season.  We’re seeing numerous ‘morphs’; teams that have changed their stripes rather dramatically in recent weeks. In this Wiseguy Report, I’ll be focusing on key Notes & Quotes from around the NFL.  These tidbits are intentionally short; a quick hitter tour around some of the key morphers in the league. 

  • Wiseguy Report: Mid-Season Look at NFL Win Totals

    The very first NFL season win bets cashed this past weekend.  Dallas fell to 2-7, ensuring that the Cowboys cannot go Over their 9.5 game win total.  Carolina improved to 9-0, cashing their Over 8.5 win total from last summer.  Seattle fell to 4-5.  Even if the Seahawks win all of their remaining games, they can do no better than push their 11 game win total.  

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.”
