In this world where technology reigns, words spread faster than fire. And in the sports world, the media tends to cover sports events quite thoroughly, especially NFL. Being USâ€™s favorite sport to watch, all the paparazzoâ€™s eyes are on NFL â€“ from both a betting and a non-betting standpoint. If you are planning to do NFL betting, then you must remember that the information that the media gives you is essential to your NFL betting success. That said, there is also a TON of NFL media coverage that does more harm than good to the average bettor. NFL analysts in the newspapers and on ESPN can break everything down including the West Coast Offense, zone blitzing, and nickel and dime packages. They can analyze what has happened in the past and pin statistics to it. Hearing all these stats and theories can be intimidating to the beginning better, especially if he or she does not really understand football. What the beginning bettor does not realize, is that is one thing to interpret past results and quite another to predict the future. TV analysts are spectacular and reporting the past but handicappers must predict the future. Additionally, beginning sports bettors are also often thrown when an analysts makes a pick that goes against theirs. They tend to question their pick and go with the analyst instead. This is not a profitable way to do things. This is precisely why I recommend beginners use a system that tells them exactly what type of bet to take and no others. Then there is no guessing, no analyzing, and no indecision. You will make only these kinds of picks and no others. The coverage of the NFL is so thorough that there is pretty much no stone left unturned. And now with the prevalence of the internet, the information is available for anyone and everyone. And because everyone has access to pretty much the same information, I shy away from basing my picks off what the analysts say. There are very few analysts whose opinions I respect week in and week out. And this will be the key to your success. Remember not to be fully loaded with information that the media and the internet give you. Choose a few sites/analyst that you can trust and had already been tested and base your NFL betting picks there and NOT the fundamental analysis of ESPN analysts or other overloaded
media channels. Just stick to the system.
