  • Blog Post: DOPING OUT THE BOWL LOSERS

    The early bowls are best known for their "surprise" results. In many cases, however, the often aberrational results of the minor bowls are easily predictable by picking losers instead of winners. Some of you are no doubt saying, "I have no problem picking losers. It's winners that...
  • Blog Post: OFFSHORE ACCT - THURS 8/27 LATE MLB PLAY IN REPLIES

    Once upon a time, a long time ago, in the land of Las Vegas, far far away, when Pregame was just a fantasy in RJ's head (when you are surrounded by show girls all day, you fantasize about sports websites), there was something called the PLUS10 Club. Rumor has it the Plus10 still exists. Check it...
  • Blog Post: ROB CROWNE FREE PICK FOR SUNDAY JULY 27

    The WNBA is particularly easy pickings for the professional handicapper for many of the same reasons that I wrote about in my article regarding Arena Football. Linemakers set the line based on a desire to split the public action. The linemaker does not base the line on his opinion of the final game result...
  • Blog Post: WINNING PROPS FOR MONDAY OCTOBER 24 NFL

    Here are the best props for the Monday, October 24 game between Denver and New England. As I said last week, proposition bets are the most profitable bets available for the small bettor. Unfortunately, you can't bet them big, but you can win an unusually high percentage. TEAM TOTAL: Take N.E. under...
  • Blog Post: THAT'S WHY THEY CALL IT "GAMBLING" + FREE PICK

    We had some terrible luck. If you bought my package for the Monday game, you know I picked Denver, and most of the analysis was based on Jay Cutler vs. Matt Cassel at QB and the comparative strengths of the offensive line. We were completely correct about the weakness of New England's offensive line...
  • Blog Post: WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE WNBA? + A FREEBEE

    Okay, unlike my recent article asking why Arena Football wasn't as popular as the NFL, I know why no one likes the WNBA. Last week one of the ladies in the WNBA actually managed to dunk the ball and it made front page headlines and the highlight films on every sports broadcast. If there was ever...
  • Blog Post: THE ONLY WAY TO PARLAY + ROB CROWNE FREEBIE

    I don't know how many times I've said and written, "parlays are sucker bets." Normally, they are, but not always. To understand why parlays are sucker bets, you first must understand the nature of a parlay. A parlay is a single bet on one proposition, and, if it wins, all the money...
  • Blog Post: SUNDAY NIGHT FREEBEE

    "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em" I always say because I love over-used gibberish. So, I've decided to become Irish just like those winners O'Bama, O'Shea, O'Luck. and O'Marco (certain people only need a first name). Here it is, my very first O'Crowne selection...
  • Blog Post: LATE FRIDAY NFL FREEBEE FROM ROB CROWNE

    You'll have to be quick, but if you can still get in play SF +1 in the late game tonight against Oakland. Neither head coach normally puts any emphasis on winning in the preseason, but SF has a new offensive coordinator by the name of Mike Martz. Our information out of SF is that Martz wants to get...
  • Blog Post: Stock and Baseball FREEBEES FROM ROB CROWNE

    Tonight the Yankees are on the road against Pittsburgh. If you want to make money in the stock market, go with the Steelmen. The demand for steel from the developing nations in the Middle East, as well as China and India, and the demand for oil drilling rigs, has given the steel companies pricing power...
  • Blog Post: I-I-I-I-I-I'M B-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-CK (Plus UCLA/Tennessee)

    I was off in London for a few days for a whirlwind tour. I pressed the flesh with endless cockney floozies in the tube, ate fish and chips, bangers and mash, roast beef with Yorkshire Pudding (which is really some sort of bread and not pudding at all), steak and kidney pie, and English breakfast with...
  • Blog Post: BEST OF BETS, WORST OF BETS

    It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." -- Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities I t was the best of bets, it was the worst of bets -- Rob Crowne, A Tale of Two Bets The Crowne Club lived through a shizophrenic weekend. After winning in the Breeders' Cup 14 out of 16 years, picking...
  • Blog Post: A CURE FOR DEPRIVATION

    It has come to my attention that many of you out there are becoming depraved because you're deprived. We can't have all this depravity around here, so as cure for your deprivity, er . . . . deprivation, I have the strongest play we've had in the NFL so far this season. As you may or may not...
  • Blog Post: TWOSDAY - FREE PICKS, A TRUE STORY, AND A SONG

    Once upon a time, Cockey Hockey was walking past the ice rink, when all of sudden . . . a puck smacked him right in the puss. Immediately, Cockey Hockey ran to Goosey Loosey's house and proclaimed, "Goosey Loosey you must come quick! The pucks are flying, the pucks are flying." Then Goosey...
  • Blog Post: SUNDAY NIGHT PROPS

    Handicappable propositions are some of the most profitable bets one can make. The lines on proposition bets are set within general parameters for all teams, which gives the handicapper who calculates the specific odds for the teams in the matchup a huge edge. The side and total in tonight's game...
  • Blog Post: BAIL OUT NEWS FLASH

    While all those guys you should never have elected play politics with the economy and $700 Billion on the line, I'm starting a grass roots campaign. Forget about bail outs for Wall Street gamblers. I say, $700 Billon to bail out sports gamblers. In the debate on Friday, neither Obama nor McCain had...
  • Blog Post: HOCHULI RHYMES WITH DONAGHY & A FREE PICK

    Has anyone noticed that Hochuli rhymes with Donaghy? Based on the performance of Ed Hochuli and his crew in the last two games, it looks to me as if Hochuli could have more in common with Donaghy than just a rhyming name. New Orleans thouroughly dominated Minnesota on Monday Night, but lost anyway. It...
  • Blog Post: FREE PICK FOR A BAD ECONOMY

    That leprachaun laddie, Barry O'Bama, gave his first press conference today, just 3 days after he won the election. That's not bad considering President Wimpy didn't hold his first press conference for 3 YEARS after he was elected, and then it was to tell us all about how he, Georgie Porgie...
  • Blog Post: A CROWNE CHRISTMAHANUKAH GIFT

    It's a Chistmahanukah freebie from the Crowne Club. They call this game the Hawaii Bowl, and one of the teams is Hawaii, which may, if you are clever, tell you a little something about the home edge in the game. My proprietary information sources tell me that very, very few students will be jumping...
  • Blog Post: ROB CROWNE'S THURSDAY FREEBIE

    Tampa Bay -170 over Philadelphia (Shields over Myers) Last night I gave you a win with Philadelphia as pick. The professional sports handicapper has no team loyalty. My loyalty is to whichever team handicaps to win the game I'm handicapping. Tonight that's Tampa Bay as a -170 favorite. I don't...
  • Blog Post: Rob Crowne's FREE NFL FRIDAY NIGHT GREEN BAY/DENVER DRESS REHEARSAL SIDE PLAY GAME OF THE YEAR

    Only this play is good enough to be a follow up to my NFL Hall of Fame Game of the Year. You didn't fall for that game-name thing again did you? Of course my selection in the NFL game tonight between Green Bay and Denver is my " NFL FRIDAY NIGHT GREEN BAY/DENVER DRESS REHEARSAL TOTAL PLAY OF...
  • Blog Post: BETTING BASEBALL UNDERDOGS

    Most underdog bets in baseball are based on the line being too high. You handicap the favorite to be the probable winner, but the probability that the favorite will win is less than the odds you must lay, and so you take the underdog as the value play. Sometimes you find an underdog that looks like a...
