  • A DAY AT THE RACES

    What a day it was! A terrific day! A GIANT day! It was the kind of day most people have never had in their lives in horse racing. It was the kind of day the Wall Street Syndicate has produced for us many times in the past, and hopefully will produce many...
  • 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...
  • LOWER THE COST OF YOUR SELECTIONS

    Last night, the Wall Street Bankers Syndicate had their first big play in baseball. Selections given to monthly and season subscribers at Pregame, and to my Crowne Club members, are rated from 1/2 unit to a very top of 2 Units . The Syndicate play last...
  • Stock and Baseball FREEBEES FROM ROB CROWNE

  • TEASER OF THE YEAR? WHAT'S THAT?

    Last Saturday, a pay-after-you-win internet sports handicapper promoted a "Teaser of the Year." His recommended teaser was a 7-point beauty on Rutgers/Oregon. Both teams were favored by 5.5 points, and were teased to +1 1/2. Rutgers took a bath...
  • 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...
  • HOW MANY GAMES SHOULD YOU BET?

    The conventional wisdom says, "You can't win betting a large number of games each day." Everyone has heard warnings such as, "When you bet a lot of games the vig will eat you up." The betting public has bought into this alleged...
  • LESSONS FROM THE HILTON CONTEST

    Keeping track of the Hilton NFL Contest can be an excellent lesson in short term vs. long term results. At the end of three weeks of NFL action, the top selector in the Hilton Contest stood at an excellent, and very lucky, 13-2 (87%). You don't expect...
  • Gambling Math - Part 1: RETURN ON INVESTMENT

    When you bet $100 flat on a single game you get back $91. When you bet $100 flat on a 2-team parlay, you get back $260. Do you know which has the higher return on investment (ROI)? The answer is not as easy as it looks. ROI is calculated by...
  • GRAND DAY FOR THE IRISH

    It was a wonderful day for the O'Shea's, O'Lucks and even Bill O'Reillys of the world yesterday, as one of their own, Barry O'Bama beat the Scotsman and was elected President. For those of you who are sad that Sarah the PILF (P for...
  • MARCH MADNESS STATISTICAL HANDICAPPING

    During the regular season most games are played on one team's home court. The most accurate handicapping results in such games are achieved by using the applicable home and road statistics for each team. During March Madness, however...
  • SYNDICATE FAQ's #2

    Since I decided, about three weeks ago, to start releasing Syndicate Selections in my pick packages , I've been getting questions about them. In my first article I answered the question " How often do you release Syndicate selections?" In...
  • Bet Like a Pro: LAKERS/ORLANDO HEDGE STRATEGY

    For the two prior games at Orlando I have told subscribers that the predicted point differential is 4 to 5 pts. The first game ended regulation at a 4 point differential, and the second game ended regulation within just two baskets of the prediction....
  • PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL BETTING

    Rule: To maximize your win you must risk more on the better bets and less on the worse bets and nothing on the bad bets. You cannot expect to win by risking larger sums on poorer bets, and lesser sums on better bets. Most bettors bet baseball by risking...

  • OPPOSITE SIDES

    Recently, there was a discussion in the Pregame forum regarding the suspected release of opposing sides in the same game by a handicapper. It turned out that there was nothing evil going on, but the attitude of some posters left no room for the possibility...
  • BATTLE OF THE BAY & THE PRESEASON ADMONITION

    The Preseason Admonition warns against using Preseason NFL performance to handicap the regular season. As with almost every admonition, however, there are exceptions. One of those exceptions occurs in cases in which a team tries to win in the Preseason...
  • WHY TV RACE TOUTS DON'T WIN

    If you've ever watched the monitors at a racetrack or racing on TV, youve seen the talking racing heads. They fill the time between races by analyzing the next race and making predictions as to which horse or horses are most likely to win. They...
  • BETTING WITH THE SMART MONEY

    Last Tuesday night, the posted total in the Detroit/Chicago game opened at 190, ran down to 188 ? and 10 minutes before the game started ran back up to 191 or 191.5 in some places. If you bet the "under" after the line ran down to 188.5 because...
  • BEST MARCH MADNESS SECOND HALF BETS

  • HORRIBLE HANDICAPPING: A LESSON

    Last night, the total in the Motor City Bowl was set at 70. At the Crowne Club we had our biggest play of the Bowl season so far on the UNDER. Offensively, Florida Atlantic has averaged 25 points per game this season, and Central Michigan has averaged...
  • MARCH MADNESS WINNERS PICKED BY HIDDEN HOME EDGE

    Each March, some teams have an unrecognized home court edge that provides one of the biggest betting advantages to be gained during the NCAA March tournaments. When a team plays on its home court everyone recognizes the edge, and unless that edge...
  • 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...
