With the preseason getting underway this weekend I would like to share something that has worked for me in the past.

Write down all the NFL opening week lines the day before the preseason tips off in Canton. These lines are out and have been bet into for some time now.

Then check the lines after all the preseason games are played. Write down the new lines for the opening week and you can see the movement preseason play has caused.

Since we all know that exhibition games mean virtually nothing we can take advantage of public perception by fading the line moves. It's worked for me in the past. let's see if it continues.

Money management, line shopping and reading the betting markets are just as important as picking the right side.

Bryan I hope you do add other thoughts as the season gets closer.  When I first started out, I use to listen to every so called professional out there and all their "advice" and all it did was just throw me in different directions.  Once I really got a solid handle on this, I had enough faith in myself and my own numbers, I was able to not listen to what anyone else was saying and trust my own capping.  But there are still a few people out there that I listen very closely to what they say, and you are one of them.  Keep up the great work, any other tips are appreciated, and looking forward to your thoughts, especially on the MAC throughout the year.

Thanks for the kind words J. Warwick. Lots of great information here if you can ignore some of the agendas.

Thanks Brian, I never thought to do that I will definitely take a look. IMO weeks 1-4 are the best time to make money in the NFL

If I had ever booked in the past, I would say weeks 1-5 were the gamblers weeks and then they bought me Christmas gifts the rest of the season.
