Who is Marc Lawrence?

Marc is a 45-year veteran of the sports handicapping industry, having won more documented Top-10 handicapping achievement awards than anyone in the nation - including winning the STARDUST INVITATIONAL FOOTBALL INVITATIONAL in 2005. He publishes the PLAYBOOK Football Preview Guide magazine - in its 28th year this season - and is heard on leading radio stations and podcasts all across the nation. In addition, Marc also authors a weekly NFL column from a Vegas perspective for the USA TODAY Sports Weekly. Through his many years of invaluable experience, Marc strives to inform players on how to achieve success while avoiding the pitfalls of sports betting. Additionally, he practices daily the highest standard of ethics in living his life by the Golden Rule: treating others as one would like others to treat oneself.

What sports does he bet on?

Marc’s three primary sports that he wagers on are football, basketball, and baseball.  He also follows hockey closely and is a season ticket holder of the Florida Panthers.

What are his handicapping systems/methods?

Marc is primarily a “technical” handicappers and relies heavily on his “well-oiled machine” - his proprietary sports database. He also believes that in order to be a well-rounded handicapper one must incorporate all three facets of sports handicapping into a portfolio, combining “statistical” and “fundamental” factors into his protocol.

What is his strategy for pick rating and bankroll management?

Marc's selections on this site are rated on a scale of 10* (top plays generally one per week per sport), 7* (strong key plays), 5* (quality plays), and occasional 1* complimentary plays.  He suggests players adhere to a bankroll and play with the allowed means (availability) of the bankroll based on strength value, thus allowing oneself an opportunity to win more while they are winning and scale back with less exposure if they are losing.

What should I expect for pick volume and release time?

Marc’s plays are generally ready daily before 12 Noon ET and sometimes - during football season - a day or two in advance. While the size and value of the card generally determine the quantity of plays, it’s important to ALWAYS seek out value (wagering at the best price possible). The difference in being a VALUE player and not will oftentimes determine your bottom line, and that’s what sports wagering is all about... the bottom line.
