Dan Gordon's NFL Handicapping Companion

Pro Football Betting Software

Finally, serious NFL Football handicapping software.

Dan Gordon is widely regarded as one of the three best handicappers in the sports world and has a winning record as a professional sports bettor for over two decades. His sports betting columns have appeared in the New York Daily News, San Francisco Examiner, Boston Herald, Log Angeles Herald Examiner, College and Pro Football Weekly and other newspapers and magazines and he served as handicapping consultant to Pete Axthelm of NBC, ESPN and Inside Sports Magazine for seven years. His latest book Beat the Sports Books - An insiderís guide to betting the NFL is a seminal work in football betting.

Betting the NFL effectively requires a great deal of data and effort. Dan Gordonís NFL Handicapping Companion (DG-NFL) is designed to greatly ease the process of collecting, maintaining and manipulating data and applying the many necessary calculations. The ability to experiment with changes to the calculations and assumptions is also provided with instant recalculation of the tables for the entire season. As a result, calculations will take far less time and will likely be more accurate. Sports betting programs generally look for patterns and streaks just like progression system players trying to beat casinos. This is easy but doesn't work. Every sport is different. DG-NFL weekly evaluates team performance and applies numerous emotional considerations to the next week's games. It then looks for errors in the book lines. This is how you find betting opportunities in pro football.

Note: If you have not read Beat the Sports Books, the betting program can still be used. But, you will find it far easier and more valuable with the book.
