2022 Playbook Football 10 Questions Interviews

1. When did you begin handicapping sports professionally, and how did you get started?
Always had a very big interest in Sports Handicapping. I got in full time in 2012 and since then have been going at it 24/7 365 aside from the Covid stoppage.
2. Who has most influenced your handicapping career?
Gotta be 100% honest Marc Lawrence was a big influence on me. I remember him coming on the Howard Eskin show on 610 WIP AM station in Philadelphia. Loved his knowledge of the games and his unique take on the games.

3. What is your primary method approach to handicapping sports?
I love looking at the opening lines for the week's football games and observing how the line moves in accordance to the money action on a certain side. Also look to see who a team has on deck next week who they just had played and any key trends that could effect the outcome of the game.
4. What is the biggest score you've made in your sports wagering career?
A lot of big hits I remember tough to pin down just one. I'd have to see going big on Lehigh U over Duke with the points a few years ago. That was a memorable upset and a nice hit.

5. What is the worst bad beat you've suffered in your sports wagering career?
Bad Beats happen routinely if you are playing a lot of games like I do. If I had to pin one down I would say a few years ago I had the Washington Football Team plus the points against the Eagles. Final play of the game Washington's QB gets sacked and the Eagles run it back for meaningless score meaningless to everyone but Washington backers.

6. Who are your favorite NFL and College Football teams, and why?
I don't believe in this business you can have a favorite team it clouds ur judgment. I would say I like to see Temple University and Penn State do well in college football and the Philadelphia Eagles stay competitive in the NFL.

7. Which NFL and College Football teams do you feel will be the biggest surprise in 2022?
I don't know if you can say it's a surprise team but I expect USC to get back to dominance and contend for the college football playoffs. In the NFL I expect to see the Jaguars as a good cover team ATS wise.

8. Which NFL and College Football teams do you feel will be the biggest disappointment in 2022?
I believe the Atlanta Falcons will struggle this season and I see the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in a down year this year both record wise and most importantly ATS wise.

9. Do you feel the College Football Playoff should expand, and if so to how many teams?
I would love to see it expand to 8 teams in a perfect world.
10.What is your best handicapping advice heading into the 2022 football season?
Tread lightly to start the season don't go to big early and set a certain wagering amount per game and stick to it. Disciplined betting is key to success in football.
