The Visionary's Free Football Picks For Friday, 8/29/08 (2 CFB, 2 MLB, 1 NFL)

2008 MLB Baseball Picks Record: 48-37 (+61.50 Units)
2008 NFL Football Picks Record: 18-8 (+30.20 Units)
2008 NCAA Football Picks Record: 1-1 (+1.80 Units)

Hello Sports Betting Enthusiasts:

Well, we hit the big play in Stanford on Thursday night, although it got a little scary there at the end. However, coach Jim Harbaugh's squad looked pretty solid. On the other side, the Beavers are probably in for a long season with that defense. Luckily, Kansas City pushed in the NFL or we would have only picked up about a half of a unit. All and all, a profitable evening.

I know that some of you may not have gotten K.C. at -4 last night. This brings me to my next point. Always shop for lines when betting on NFL & college football. Just last night, shopping for lines means the difference in winning one half of a unit (or 0.6) and picking up four units (or 3.9). Have at least two online sportsbook accounts open even if you have a local guy. Let me suggest BetUS Sportsbook, where you can get an exclusive 100% match-play bonus (from $100 up to $500) by using this link and mentioning The Visionary at sign-up. This is very important in successful handicapping. You think the best gamblers in the world settle for just one line that 'Joe The Bookie' has on the game? Of course they don't, and neither should you. Always shop for lines!

As for Friday's college football picks, our favorite animal is the Owl tonight. We are also playing two baseball games. As for the preseason NFL picks, only one game tonight as we have a small schedule. Go cash these...and make sure you get the best line!
