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.

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.

Feeling Lucky?

Indianapolis over KANSAS CITY by 1

If this were a canine contest, Indy would win best in show, hands down. It starts with the Colts’ eye-opening 14-3 ITS (In The Stats) record this season – including 13-1 ITS in its last fourteen games. Meanwhile, after booting star RB Kareem Hunt off the squad in December, going just 3-2 SU and ITS while burning the money in 4 of the five contests, the Chiefs performed as if they were on a drunk down the stretch. For a team that is 0-8 ATS in its last eight playoff games at Arrowhead, including 6 straight up losses in a row, they now look instead more like a team in need of recovery rather than one with its sights set on a Super Bowl. That’s not good news when one considers that the host team in KC/AFC South games has gone 3-14 SUATS the last eight years, with the Chiefs just 1-7 SUATS at home against the Colts dating back to 1996. The bottom line is Indianapolis QB Andrew Luck is playing the best ball of his career and has never lost a game at Arrowhead (2-0 SUATS). And while the Chiefs are one of only 9 teams in NFL history to score 540 points in a season, NONE of them won the Super Bowl. The blue ribbon goes to Indianapolis.
