Good Morning Sports Bettors:
Was Thursday night as sweet as can be or what? How’s that for a ‘bounce back’ card? Did you really think Wednesday night was beginning of a slump? Think again. Giving back those 4 units on Wednesday was peanuts compared to the 14 units we ripped right back from the books with Thursday’s 5-0 sweep. We are rapidly approaching that +150 unit mark. It seems like it was just 4 or 5 days ago when we hit the 100-unit mark. Oh yea...it was just 4 or 5 day's ago. As another reader named Carl stated in yesterday's comments, "The Visionary Owns".
Go find me another handicapper or scam artist service that advised UNC on money line (+200) and two baseball underdogs over +150 on Thursday, especially right before a college football weekend. There is not a single one anywhere in the world (even the honest ones). I’ll tell you what most guys like Brandon Lang and Jim Fiest do right before a big weekend of football when there is a baseball schedule; they all release big favorites of -200 (or more) all week in hopes of hitting as many as possible. This way they look like they are good handicappers and then they can bag as many suckers as they can for the weekend of football. They use their picks that you are buying as marketing tools. Most of these services (19 out of 20 at a minimum) will do nothing but run your bankroll into the ground and put you into the red. I have worked in this industry for over 7 years and I know how it operates. Trust me; the best handicappers do not sell picks for a living. I can also pretty much guarantee that there isn’t a single sports handicapping service in the world that has been more profitable then this completely free blog has been since it's launch. Stick with me all football season and I pledge that I will never advise you to play a game that I am not personally putting my hard-earned money on. I also pledge that I will do my very best to continue showing you consistent winners just like I have been for the past for months.
Anyway, on to Friday’s card of college football picks and baseball picks. I have been hearing a lot of reports that there is a lot of bitterness in the Washington State locker room. There are also reports of guys playing the blame game and it has been said that Cougars first year head coach Paul Wulff is losing control of his squad. Personally, I have not read these reports and I am not sure how 100% accurate this information is. However, it does come from a reliable and trustworthy source of mine; someone I call a friend and someone who would never intentionally make something like this up. This Cougar team is not a very good football team to begin with and this information can’t help things. Either way, this is good news for us because I was already planning on adding Baylor to my NCAA football picks for Saturday, even before the game got rescheduled. I have been liking the Bears in this matchup all week. Combine my early week play with the disarray among the WSU team, a missed day of practice, and the public's focus on the Kansas/USF matchup, we might have ourselves a sleeper of a big play tonight. Hurricane IKE might just be making The Visionary and his readers some sweet cash tonight. The Washington State / Baylor matchup can be seen on FSN in many markets tonight.
I also have a pick in the primetime, ESPN, top 25 showdown for this evening. I also have a pair of MLB picks for Friday, but these may be the last two until Monday or Tuesday. There is a big schedule of football this weekend which has been and will be my main focus. I am not sure that The Visionary will have the time to examine the bases with all the football handicapping that I will be doing over the next 48 hours. But, we do have an exciting weekend of football picks coming up as well as some premier college football games that should be fun to watch (with or without the betting). Anyway, here is the Friday night card. I will get back at you all tonight or early tomorrow morning with the Saturday’s college football picks and maybe another informative post.
