By Kelso Sturgeon 

                I have just returned from a Friday morning trip to five Las Vegas sports books to get an update on Sunday’s National Football League conference championship and got the same message at each stop—the public is all-in on both underdogs, the San Francisco 49ers and the New England Patriots, while the sharps and wiseguys are/have taking a major stand on the Denver Broncos.

                In these three spots, there is no indecision but it is of note the wiseguys are yet to make a move on the San Francisco/Seattle Game—and they may pass it altogether because of the line and the game’s competitive nature.

In speaking to one of the sharps, he is nervous about this game because he is nervous about one set of numbers—the 49ers are 8-2 straight up (SU) and 8-1-1 against the spread (ATS) on the road this season. As good as are those numbers he noted Seattle (-3) buried San Francisco 29-3 in Seattle in the second game of the season.

There are differences of opinion among bettors and there should be. One can make a strong case for each team in the two games and that is why betting lines vary thus far. As of Friday morning Seattle was a -3.5 or -3.0 favorite, depending on where one bets and the total on this one was being offered at both 39 and 40. It was the same story with the Denver-New England game where prices ran from a low of Denver -5.0 to a high of -6.0, with the prevalent number being -5.5 with totals being offered at 55.5 and 56.5.

In addition to the wiseguys coming in heavily on Denver to get the cover against New England, they also bet out taking the Broncos on the money line. At the offshore book CRIS in Costa Rica—an office that specializes in book wiseguys and big bettors, Denver was -240 on the money line with New England +200. In the National Conference game, Seattle was -195, the 49ers +165.

The bottom line is a simple one: these games are very competitive and since a case can be made for all four, you are certainly entitled to your opinion and you need not let anyone talk you out of it.

Win 50-Unit Side/Total Plays On Both NFL

                There is not the slightest doubt in my mind the pointspread will be in play in both NFL Conference Championship Games today but with that said, I have worked overtime to find the winning edges in both games and I am confident I will go 4-0, releasing both at the 40-unit level with an additional 10-unit bet on the totals. That’s 100-units of winning action and you can get the money for just $50, charged to your major credit card. Games Available on this website and toll free at my office, 1-800-755-2255.

I’m Winning In College And NBA Basketball And Am Beating Tightest Betting Lines Ever

                I warned basketball bettors one week into the season they were facing the hardest-to-beat betting lines in history. Bookmakers apparently got tired of losing with their often soft numbers and decided to get it right during the 2013-14 season—and have they done their job.

                It is of note there were 52 games scheduled Thursday night and the pointspread in 25 of those games (48%) until the final 30 seconds, or less, of play. This was a typical night of play where about half the games scheduled went right to the money before the pointspread winner was decided.

                It also is of note that underdogs covered in 27 of the games (52%). On this particular night the percentage of underdogs covering was below the prevailing 50% figure.

                Beating basketball this season is a major challenge—far more than it has ever been—and bettors need to work overtime and find the winning edges that are not obvious.

                I am extremely thankful I am winning in both college and NBA basketball, the reward for putting in the time it takes to win.
