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.

Marc married his high school sweetheart 40 years ago and has one son, Marc Jr., who works with him in the industry. Aside from publishing the PLAYBOOK Football Yearbook magazine and Weekly Newsletters, Marc enjoys golf and horse racing.

Supe LIII: ThisClose

Super Bowl 53: Rams over Patriots by 1

As you can see, the edges in this contest are pretty much split right down the middle. And with both teams arriving off overtime victories, this game certainly has the look of whomever scores last wins written all over it. But if you believe in destiny, then your heart has to be with the upstart Rams, a team that was 4-12 when Sean McVay took them over two seasons ago.

The fact of the matter is Los Angeles is a team that, for all intents and purposes, should not even be here (read: blown call by the zebras in the late stages of last week’s game against New Orleans). But then again if Kansas City’s DE Dee Ford doesn’t line up offside, the Pats wouldn’t be here, either.

With the Rams wearing their classic blue-and-yellow throwbacks in which they are 5-1 this season, and underdogs on a blistering 16-4-1 ATS winning run in the postseason the past two seasons, the final edge is theirs. Fear the crypto.
