  • Blog Post: Preseason Trends & Minnesota/San Francisco

    Preseason football is one of the only places in which trends across several seasons can be meaningfully used.

  • Blog Post: ALL ABOUT ROB CROWNE

    In the Beginning I've been betting for over 40 years -- longer than most -- but I am not a gambler, and I have never been a gambler. I consider the word "bet" to be synonymous with the word "invest." I bet very big money, but only on things that provide me with the edge. I use...
  • Blog Post: ROB CROWNE NFL FREEBIE

    I promised a pick package play in the NFL today, but all I had until very late were small plays. When selling individual plays I donn't like to put up anything but stronger plays.

  • Blog Post: HANDICAPPING THE PRO BOWL

    As with all meaningless games, no edge can be gained by attempting to handicap the winning side in the Pro Bowl using fundamental statistics.

  • Blog Post: NFL HALF-TIME RANT

    NFL HALF TIME RANT In the NFL, there are exactly 13 minutes from the time the teams start to walk off the field to the time they kick the ball for the second half.
