|Name: Doc's Sports
Years in handicapping: 42 years in the handicapping business. Doc’s Sports started offering clients sports predictions back in 1971 and now has assembled some of the finest experts in the country for its handicapping service. We are one of the few handicapping companies that have withstood the test of time because of hard work, honesty (win or lose), and consistently providing winners to our valued clients.
Achievements in handicapping: Since 1971 Doc's Sports has been recognized and one of the leaders and most trusted names in sports handicapping. Doc’s Sports became famous for our Big Ten Game of the Year that covered the point spread 19 years in a row. Doc’s Sports is one of the only handicappers whose powerful influence has historically moved the official line more than seven points. 2008 was a Golden Year for Doc’s Sports, as we earned Las Vegas handicapping titles in both college football and college basketball. In 2009 we were a nationally ranked top-5 handicapper during the NFL Preseason!
Biggest win of the year: Our 10* selection with Chicago over Tennessee on Nov. 4, 2012. The Bears entered the game as a slight favorite and forced a turnover on the first offensive play from scrimmage from Tennessee. The Bears jumped on the Titans early and never looked back, winning the game by a score of 51-20. Chicago was playing outstanding football at this moment, and this was the perfect time to go with a big 10* selection with them.
Biggest loss of the year: The selection was Duke +9.5 over Cincinnati in the 2012 Belk Bowl. This was one of the worst beats in the history of our company, as the score was tied with under two minutes to play, and Duke had the ball inside the Cincinnati 10-yard line. A fumble, 80-plus-yard touchdown pass, and a pick six did us in, as Duke wound up losing by 14 points is one of our worst beats ever.
Systems used for handicapping a game: "Often times, less information is available and certain trends stick out that the average person may not catch," Doc’s Sports says. "Oddsmakers set lines to balance the action, so in reality we're often handicapping against the general public perception, and the general public rarely ever wins long-term. The sportsbooks and oddsmakers have to handicap and set lines for every game -- we simply find a few of their mistakes." Doc’s Sports uses a combination of technical, fundamental and exclusive information that they gather from a vast network of contacts that they have developed over the past 40 years.
Favorite team to wager on or against: Washington State in college basketball. The Cougars have an outstanding home-court advantage and always appear to be underrated by the oddsmakers. We use them numerous times each season, especially during the nonconference portion of the season.
Team you avoid when wagering: Michigan State. This is a team that has frustrated us over the years in both football and basketball. Their football team has been unpredictable this decade and wins games when they appear flat and loses games when then have the momentum. We did use them as our top bowl selection in 2012, and they came through for us. But nothing is ever easy with this team. Every year they win games that they should not and lose to teams that they are much better then.
Sports, conferences and divisions the service excels at handicapping: At Doc’s Sports we've built our name by becoming one of the best in handicapping college sports. That still holds true today, as our best results still come from college football and college basketball. We also have full time handicappers for NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL, and major horse races, and we feel we have some of the top experts in the country in these designated fields. We are a worldwide company and have offices in both the Midwest and Las Vegas, and we have the resources to staff full-time handicappers in the above mentioned sports.
