line value and knowing when and who to bet on, has become a very

profitable formula for both Meyer and his thousands of clients.

Two wagers that have garnered a lot of attention for Meyer over the past

year involved the Green Bay Packers Super Bowl win and Animal Kingdom’s

Kentucky Derby win.

Meyer placed his wager with the M Resort and Casino in Las Vegas,

Nevada. Meyer separates himself from others

in his industry by placing large wagers on the same games he advises to

his clients who subscribe to his service at www.AdamWins.com.

While each wager is unique, Meyer has a track record of placing, and

winning, large bets on major sporting events including the Super Bowl

and Kentucky Derby. As the world markets

continue to become more unstable, many are looking toward sports

wagering as a safer way to find a return on a short term investment than

the stock markets. Adam appears weekly on more than a dozen radio

shows across the country from KNBR in San Francisco to WEEI in Boston. In 2011 Adam Meyer Published Real Money Sports Magazine

and introduced his iPhone application, Adam Wins, that debuted on itunes

September 23. Louis Cardinals to win the World Series before the playoffs began. “I felt strongly about the way the Cardinals had ended the regular

season,” said Adam Meyer. Meyer is known as one of the

industry’s biggest gamblers, and is regularly featured on sports-talk

radio stations across the country. Meyer received 15-1 odds, which would provide him with a $1.5

million dollar payday should the Cardinals win.

Meyer’s ability to hedge and treat sports wagering as a business, has

inspired thousands to follow this popular trend. “Add the equation of the veterans in the

lineup and ace pitcher, Chris Carpenter, there was definitely value at

15-1 odds.”

10 Tips for Betting on Football

“If you listen to their advice, you are sure to lose.

6. If you like an underdog, it is best to get your bet in as late as possible, where there is heavy action from squares on favorites. So underdogs tend to be slightly undervalued – except by the sharps.”

But that doesn’t mean you have to bet like a “square” and throw away your hard-earned money.

“A square is the average, unsophisticated gambler whose decision making is based on hunches, media manipulation, or spurious systems that cannot overcome the bookmaker’s inherent mathematical advantage,” Konik explains. These books change their numbers according to the betting patterns of their customers, so it is not entirely uncommon to find two or three point differences in the lines.”

3. “Because alcohol clouds your judgment and usually helps you to make rash decisions you usually wouldn’t otherwise make.

1. Avoid Chasing Bets – “Don’t do it! There is no worse way to mismanage your bankroll than to chase your bets after a losing day,” cautions Moseman on the dangerous practice of trying to immediately win back your losses. And why not? We have unconditional love for the sport and betting $50 or $100 on a game adds an extra rush of adrenaline.

“There is probably no better bet in sports than playing an underdog at home,” Moseman says. Drinking and Gambling Don’t Mix – “There is a reason the casinos in Las Vegas supply you with free drinks while you are gambling,” Moseman says. He loses year after year, according to Dan Gordon, a top football handicapper and author of How to Beat the Sports Books (Cardoza Publishing 2005). “The key to proper money management is to be sure not to bet more than you can afford to lose.”

“A square or recreational player might have a vague plan, but after two Corona’s he will definitely run to the window and make a hasty decision on the USC-Notre Dame game because he wants to be involved in the party atmosphere,” Vaccaro says. The only touts bettors should consider are the ones who talk about the long haul and realistic winning percentages, which are in the upper 50 percent to lower 60 percent range.”

Also, it’s probably a good idea to disregard advice from the myriad of ex-players and football experts you see on television each week. To be a successful sports bettor you need to operate with a clear mind.”

So, is it possible for the average square to become a little sharper in making football bets this season? According to professionals like Vacarro, Konik and Gordon, amateur bettors have the best chance to win if they demonstrate a little patience and follow the 10 basic tips below. Shop For Numbers – “Another important aspect of betting on football is shopping for the best number,” Moseman explains. Bet at the Right Time – “The sharp bettors tend to bet underdogs, and they tend to bet them early,” Moseman says. Locks Don’t Exist – “Anyone who has watched sports for about a month realizes that the difference between winning and losing, especially against the spread, can be infinitesimally small,” Gordon says.

Certainly not back into the pockets of the average bettor. If you want advice about sports betting, find someone who has a successful track record.

Newspapers and popular sports sites routinely publish the lines or point spreads for games, and football insiders offer their picks to viewers each week on ESPN and other cable networks. Not all games work according to this formula, but it is usually a good rule of thumb.”

Betting on football games; whether it’s through a local bookie, an offshore Internet site or a Nevada casino (still the only legal place in America to make football bets), most of us have done it or know of someone who has. “Most people prefer to bet on the ‘better’ team, the one that will probably win the game. “Over the course of several seasons, the percentage of bettors who turn a profit is minuscule.”

“The bookies fear and despise a tiny coterie of professional bettors known as ‘the sharps,'” Konik says. Also, being “in action” can make a dull late-afternoon game (Buffalo vs.

And remember, in the immortal words of “Fast” Eddie Felson, “Money won is twice as sweet as money earned.”

But even though the math says it’s virtually impossible to win on a consistent basis, Americans continue to bet on football. “When you’re in a good rhythm and winning, you want to increase your bets.

2. Giving 11 to 10 odds is almost always the cheapest price you can give.”

9. Research Football Services – “Most sports services realize that most people who sign up with them are insecure,” Gordon warns. . The only locks that exist are those that need keys to open them.”

“A sharp or smart has a plan of what he wants to do,” says Vaccaro, the director of sports operations and public relations at Lucky’s Race and Sports Book in Las Vegas. Avoid Exotic Bets – “For very skilled handicappers, with a proven track record, there can, at least in theory, be value in betting parlays,” says Gordon on the type of bet that combines two or more individual wagers. On college you will be able to find different lines at different sports books. Slim underdogs regularly win outright. “In trying to bamboozle potential customers, many services make claims about having scouts all over the country that give them inside information and promise 70 or even 80 percent winners, as if the bookmakers were the biggest suckers in the world. If North Texas is his best bet on a Saturday then that is his bet. They use powerful computers that can process millions of bits of data and produce a more accurate point-spread line than the bookmakers.”

5. The payout is just the same as far as he is concerned. “Teams play inspired ball at home. Focus on Conferences – “The best way to win money betting football is to develop a niche and follow it closely,” Moseman advises. “In the NFL, a game will often be totally turned around by one or two plays, or even a single penalty. In fact, sports bettors must pick 52.4 percent winners just to break even.”

“The biggest mistake that amateur bettors make is they increase their bets when they are losing,” Sevransky says.

Michael Konik, a sports writer and best-selling author of The Smart Money (Simon & Schuster 2006), explains why it is so hard for the recreational gambler to win at betting on football. Otherwise, you’re better off doing your own research.”

Although exact figures are impossible to calculate, according to Jimmy Vaccaro, widely considered to be Las Vegas’ most influential bookmaker, Americans probably wager more than $50 billion a year on NFL and college football combined. The NFL, for example, will have very similar numbers at most of the betting shops you visit. “Common wisdom says that over the course of a long football season the average man or woman will pick approximately 50 percent winners. “There will be more discrepancy in the numbers at different sports books.

4. “If you become an expert on a smaller conference like the WAC, you have a good chance to beat the house because sports book operators do not have the time or resources to follow this conference the way you can. “He is not jaded by teams and does not bet with his heart. “As for me, the best bet in football is betting the point spread or over/under totals on individual games. Money Management – “This is without a doubt the most important aspect of betting on sports and possibly the most neglected,” says Morey “Doc” Moseman, a professional gambler and sports consultant with DocSports.com for nearly 40 years. If you are going to go with a favorite, it is best to place your bet early in the week when the sharps are laying heavy money on the points. “Thus, the bookies love and cherish the squares.”

Even Hollywood is not immune – think Two for the Money with Al Pacino and Matthew McConaughey.

Ted Sevransky, a well-known Las Vegas gambler and sports consultant with Sportsmemo.com, agrees.

8. Big underdogs often find ways to cover the spread and they rarely give up toward the end of a game in front of the home crowd.”

“The talking heads on TV know nothing about sports betting,” says Sevransky. Consider Underdogs – “In the long-run, it’s easier to win betting on the underdog,” Konik says. Oakland comes to mind) seem like the Super Bowl. Thanks to the juice, the only one who profits in this scenario is the bookmaker. There is a wealth of information on the Internet; it is just up to you to find it and research it daily.”

“The standard bet requires gamblers to lay $11 for every $10 they want to win with the extra $1 or 10 percent known as the juice,” Konik says. But, when you’re struggling, that’s when you want to reduce your bet size until you get out of your slump.

Another difference between squares and sharps is how they approach betting on game day.

So, how much should you bet a game?

10. There are almost an infinite number of scenarios that can happen in a single football game. “For example, if you have a $1,000 bankroll for the season, you should generally bet no more than $50 a game.”

And where does all that money go?

So, how much are we gambling each football season?

Moseman agrees and especially likes home underdogs.

7. “The sharps are usually members of a betting syndicate privy to the most up-to-date information on injuries, weather, game plans, and, most important, the real power of the teams involved.

While these tips don’t guarantee you’re going to win, hopefully they can make you a little less square and a little more sharp in your picks this season. He is not taken in by being involved in USC-Notre Dame just because it is the biggest watched game of the day. “Squares usually bet later in the week and they tend to pick the favorites. Chasing losses is the fastest way to the poor house.”

However, Konik adds that there are some bettors who actually know how to beat the bookies.

“Most people with an understanding of football gambling bet between 3 percent and 5 percent of their bankroll, increasing when they win and reducing when they lose,” Vaccaro says.

“In an average season, fewer than one bettor in twelve turns a profit,” Gordon says

Titleist HVC Tour SF by Dan Dunigan

Normally I would use an 8 iron to hit 135 yards.

As an avid golfer I eventually made my way to the shelves with the golf balls and noticed that the Titleist HVC Tour SF was on sale for $10 a dozen. The target golfers may have a problem.

I’m sure that some of the low handicappers would have trouble with my review and will surely dispute my findings.

So where is the problem? It did not hold the green like the ProV1. I was wandering up and down the isles looking at the new stuff and avoiding the sporting goods section because that’s where I spend the most money.

The same was true of my irons. This ball oozes confidence. . I think I will continue to play this ball. This just my opinion and hopefully it will help a fellow golfer. I’m sure that on a hard green you can expect it to go right through the green unless you compensate for it. So what’s the bottom line? Overall, I was impressed with the Titleist HVC Tour SF. Not a big deal if you are a known short hitter. Maybe more like the Pro V1X. I put on my best game face; I stick the peg in the ground and place my new ball on it. I make a mighty swing and…WOOHOO!

The next day I was on the golf course with my new balls in my bag and eager to get started.

I went on to score well for the rest of the round and was impressed overall with the quality of the ball. I normally have GHIN of around 12 and a swing speed right at 100 MPH. So, I picked up a dozen.

The first thing I noticed about the ball was how similar it was to the Pro V1, which is the premium ball for Titleist. It held its roundness and I was able to get 2 rounds out of it before it was relegated to my shag bag.

A few days ago I was in my favorite discount department store. You should be able to find it at the department stores for less than half what you would pay for Pro V1/V1X.

I normally play the more expensive Titleist Pro V1 and the Titleist HVC Tour SF was longer by about 30 yards! Now I am not a low handicap player. I align myself to my target. I was able to adjust as the round went along. I was holing out with longer puts and leaving the ball closer on the lags. I was 10 to 15 yards longer on all my irons. I hit my 8 iron over 150 yards and was long to the green on my approach shot. I would give it 3 balls out of 4. It didn’t scuff as much as I had anticipated. It is not as soft as the Titleist Pro V1. For me, a 30 yard gain is impressive.

Now for the moment of truth. Play Well.

On the green the ball was great. It should be good for the bump and run golfers. It has found a permanent place in my bag. I had a chance to practice on the putting green prior to the 1st tee and was impressed with the feel. That’s one of the things I like about Titleist, unless you look at the side label, you can’t tell one ball from another
