Saturday's Best Bets

Editor's Note: has teamed up with professional sports bettor and handicapper Kevin Gamble to bring you free weekly college football winners with analysis, plus he provides his infamous parlays that can build your bankroll from nothing to something in one day!

After a lackluster 60% weekend, I’m looking to capitalize in Week 8 with a solid parlay ticket. Be sure to review my approach from Week 7 and see where I was both right and wrong.

The dynamics of this week, will be skewed in favor of home teams. The reason for this is simple -- every team is fighting for their solidified position within the conference.

We will still use the strategy of three, always picking three bets in place of every one bet we make.

Kevin, what does that mean?

If you go to 10:06 of my video below, you’ll see my handicap on Thursday’s UCLA-Stanford matchup. (Sorry for not producing sooner)

Put simply, in the UCLA game we would take the over in 60% of our bets. And we would take the first half cover by Stanford in 20% of our bets. The remaining 20% would be thrown on the under in the game and UCLA to cover.

Based on a $100 bankroll, your wagers would’ve looked like this.

$60 on Over 49 UCLA-Stanford (WIN $54.55)
$20 on Stanford +4 ½ (LOSS $20)
$20 Parlay on UCLA (+4.5) and Under 49 (LOSS $20)

Total Profit: $14.55

Using my approach, you minimalize your risk and spread out your reward.

This is essentially a systematic way of strategically finding yourself in a better position had you taken the opposite pick. It is our goal, to show you not only how to look at games, but you also devise a strategic plan that works in your favor.

I have found over the past four years the best way to win at betting is to over analyze the game, and factor in every single possibility that your mind can muster up.

When we are betting the over, we always take the first half cover in its place. The reason for this, if it is looking like the game is going to go under the team that is favored most likely will be covering all bets. Of course, there is always room for a variance in this case…but using my strategy will allow old bets to be conformed as one.

I look forward to sharing more strategies with you guys, and we’ll eventually we will delve into the entire process at hand. The ability to beat the bookmakers has always excited me and it should excite you as well.

Enjoy the process, and have a great week!
