Bobby Smith has got to be the best football forecaster in the nation. It's about time the S.O.B. wrote a book and shared his very original philosophies and insights about how NFL results vs. the point spread are really shaped. This guy is definitely someone that do-it-yourselfers need to read. Why? Because they will certainly gain new and important perspectives and the confidence to smarten themselves up and get better at picking winners vs. the spread. That's what How to Beat the Pro Football Pointspread is all about.

Awesome info. Funny, too. There really has been nothing else like it. If there was, I would have seen it by now. I've put down other books on this subject in bookstores - a quick read and you could see they were junk. With this book's help already, this past weekend, I targeted two winners - Rams and Lions - that I never would have thought or had the nerve to bet on had I not read this book. Thanks, man!

The title makes it seems great, but its not so much. The author comes off as pompous and arrogant and quotes statistics nonstop. Then tells you that this stastitic he used is great, but the one that you used is meaningless. Yet both of them come from the same source and cover the same games and are both accurate.

Couldve been written a bit clearer, t's more like a critical essay, criticizing everything. Yet it is not offering any real suggestions on how to win.

This book is definitely full of breakdowns of how to predict pointspreads, what advice to ignore, etc. My only problem with this book is that the writer doesn't give definitions of all the initials (ncr, bc, etc.) Other than that, I really like the book!!

Bettors, before buying this book. Please have a second thought and look for another book. This book is filled with useless non-impact info that is readily available on the web. How did he call himself a "sharp"?!

Just a poorly written book. There's just no new information that I cant find on the internet. It seems like he copied all the info and pasted it into his book. You can only tell by all the jumbled paragraphs.

He does a good job of explaining the wagering process. Could have gone a little deeper as I think new bettors grasp the basics pretty quick. For new and intermediate level players. Good.

This book will open the eyes of anybody who is prepared to win on the NFL. Like anything, if you are prepared to the do the work you will do well. The author guides you in searching for the best information and how to decipher it.

Well worth it

I bought this after reading a positive review. In realty it is just more of the same useless information. The author owns a paid handicapping service. Although the book is a soft sale to visit his sight and purchase their services, never the less, it is just more of the same. The bottom line is noone can predict how a hundred different people will perform on any given day. Keep in mind that the odd setters don't even attempt this. They are just trying to get an equal number of people to bet on each side of the game. Remember , they get 10 percent of each side of the bet.
Save your money and throw darts.
