Ace Alex Free sports betting picks. I haven't kept track to see how good the picks are but at least they're free.
AnteUp Gambling Sports Picks & Advice Links  
America's Line Roxy Roxborough's Site with lots of odds and betting information. For those of you that are unaware, Roxy Roxborough founded Las Vegas Sports Consultants in 1982 and provided odds to major Nevada sports books, as well as licensed bookmaking operations in Mexico, Europe and Australia. He left Las Vegas Sports Consultants in 1999 and currently devotes his time to his syndicated column, America's Line, which appears in over 125 newspapers in the United States and Canada and he has been a casino and sports book consultant since 1981. Roxy is the real deal (unlike Danny Sheridan and other "posers").
Bluebook Sports Free picks and stats (including 12 year NFL matchup histories and 7 year College Matchup Histories).
Buzz Daly's Players Guide to Sports Books Very good handicapping site with interesting articles.'s Qoxhi Picks Football Columns Dennis Ranahan offers his unique insights. Well worth reading. Innovative NFL stats including drive chart breakdowns, play-by-play analysis for teams and individual players, directional rushing tables, the "Ultimate Prediction Machine" and more. Their picks were extremely accurate for a few years but their 2001 NFL Season has been, to put it bluntly, lousy.
CBS Sportsline - Today's Line Odds from CBS Sportsline The See the numbers data page is great!
Don Best Free Odds Page Odds from 4 Las Vegas casinos plus scores.
The Daily Spread Great source of free sports betting info and advice. Exposes a lot of sports betting scams also.
The Daily Spread Wagering Odds & Futures Page Free Vegas Odds and Futures from the Stardust, Hilton, and Mirage.
Free NFL Computer Handicapper Page Free computer generated NFL game score predictions and matchup stats.
Gambler's World Lots of up-to-date sports news can be found here. Free handicapping contests including The NFL Championship Challenge! Make the most correct selections Against The Spread each week in the NFL and you win!
The Gold Sheet  
Larry Grossman's "You Can Bet On It" Show You can listen LIVE weekdays from 2-3pm Pacific time. Interesting discussions although, in my opinion, his guests are made out to be quite a bit better at handicapping than they actually are.
The Prescription Be sure and check out their online radio shows!
rec.gambling.sports (FAQ)  
The Redzone Terrific site with NFL news, football articles, rumors, football links, message boards and football stats.
Sports Insider With scores and pre-game reports. Sports consulting firm with links to other sports information resources. I haven't tried their services. If you do, let me know how you do.
The Fantasy Advantage Online Radio Show Complete NFL matchup analysis every week of the season. Geared to help fantasy football contestants but I find that the insights I get from this show often help quite a bit in handicapping NFL games.'s Sports Betting Lines Get the odds (delayed by 15 minutes) from the Stardust, Caesars, Hilton, MGM-Mirage, and Station Casinos Lots of good handicapping information can be found here.
Vegas Insider A good site for sports handicapping stats and advice. As always, take the advice with a grain of salt because, as good as they make themselves out to be here, a lot of the handicappers have, at best, mediocre betting records - at least on picks I've heard from them. Sports sim site where you can put together fantasy lineups and compete against real lineups or other fantasy teams. So far just for baseball and basketball but football is coming! Seems like it'd be interesting to see how well the information at this site could be applied to sports betting and tournament pools. Handicapping site with betting odds, scores, discussion boards where users post daily selections, and more. I have only had a chance to check out the free sections of the site so I can't honestly say whether the pay services are worthwhile or not. If you try them out, drop me a line to let me know what you think!
