Let’s build on some pigskin momentum

By ROY LANG III, Journal Sports

Turned a profit in our football debut and went 2-0 in NFL sides, thanks to Tampa Bay and Minnesota. The players to score TD bets were fun, too. This week, we branch out with some longshot specials – especially in the NFL.

Note: Check out my Facebook (Roy Lang III) and Twitter (@roylangiii) for the bonus NFL play(s) around 11 a.m. on Sunday mornings.


All bets are measured in units. For instance, if your normal bet on a game is $100, that is one unit. If the bet is listed as .2 units, it’s a $20 bet.

Best line (as of Tuesday) is listed in parenthesis. Find the best price, one key to being a successful sports bettor! Shop around!

Remember this is a VALUE-based system, so don’t settle for a price significantly less than the one listed. And jump on better prices!
