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!

In 1993, J.R. Miller wrote the groundbreaking How Professional Gamblers Beat the Pro Football Pointspread: A Step by Step Textbook Guide (ISBN 0963650009, 9780963650009). On the cover, Miller describes his book as a “no-nonsense, straight-forward and thoroughly explained guide.”

In 2006, Bobby Smith wrote How to Beat the Pro Football Pointspread: A Comprehensive, No-Nonsense Guide to Picking NFL Winners (Skyhorse Publishing, Inc.). Not only is this a bad book, but it exposes another plagiarist who fails to recognize that books should be original. This book is illegal and amounts to nothing more than literary identity theft.

In 2015, just one year after Miller died, Skyhorse Publishing and Smith released their 2nd Edition How to Beat the Pro Football Pointspread: A Comprehensive, No-Nonsense Guide to Picking NFL Winners.

Really? J.R. Miller’s son, J.V. Miller, who now owns the copyright, is suing Skyhorse and Smith, seeking a Cease and Desist order as well as a demand for payment for damages of $1 million.

Alot of information that is useful but it doesnt hold you by the hand. It gives you examples and you have to do the rest.

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!!
