Marc Lawrence

Marc Lawrence has authored thousands of articles expounding on the three primary forms of sports handicapping: Fundamental, Statistical and Technical. To be a successful handicapper, blending all three forms of analysis into the handicapping equation. Marc relies heavily on a proprietary powerful database of scores, stats and results of games played since 1980, both College and Pro Football and College and Pro Basketball.

Marc has been handicapping sports professionally since 1975, having won more documented Top 10 Handicapping Achievement awards than any handicapper in the nation. He won the 2005 STARDUST FOOTBALL INVITATIONAL Contest and was a SEMI-FINALIST in the 2006 $100,000 LEROYS' MONEY TALKS Contest last season. He finished the 2006 season as the No. 1 handicapper in the NFL as documented by SPORTS WATCH in Las Vegas. Marc also finished No. 1 in the nation in College Football win percentage in 2005 as documented by both the SPORTS MONITOR in Oklahoma and SPORTS WATCH in Las Vegas. He was named HANDICAPPER OF THE YEAR in 2005 by FOOTBALL NEWS.

In 2008, he finished No. 1 in NFL win percentage according to SPORTS WATCH and also captured 1st place honors in the 2008 PLAYBOOK WISE GUYS CONTEST.

Marc has hosted a national radio show "MARC LAWRENCE AGAINST THE SPREAD" for each of the last 16 years on over 100 stations syndicated in the USA. He is a tireless handicapper who works a minimum 60-hour week during the football and basketball seasons. As a handicapper he firmly believes that three things can happen when you bet an underdog, and two of them are good. He enjoys helping others to become better informed.

Best Playoffs Upset, Weekend JAN 5

Seattle over Dallas by 3

As you know, we’ve never been fond of Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett in the role of favorite, and we’re not about to change stripes today. Not with the Cowboys owning an inexcusable 2-9 SU and 3-8 ATS record in the playoffs since 1997. And not with Garrett standing 16-32-1 ATS as a home favorite, including 0-2 ATS in the postseason, as well as 1-6 ATS as a favorite of less then 3 points. With that the surging Seahawks invade behind a coach that stands 14-6 SUATS with Seattle in games against the NFC East, including 8-2 SUATS away and 8-2 SUATS in games in which Seattle owns a .600 or greater win percentage. And then there is QB Russell Wilson and his 17-6-1 ATS dog log in games against winning foes, including 10-2-1 ATS when those game opponents are coming off consecutive wins. With Wild-Card Round underdogs 6-1 ATS in games in which they were favored by more than 12 points the previous game, you know what to do.
