By: Joseph D'Amico 11/01/2013

As last season's #1 NBA Handicapper finishing the season at 43-18 and an overall record of 62%, it was my 5th NBA Handicapping Title. Pro basket ball is unlike any other sport. You can look at a matchup and know you will cover by 20 points and at the end of the game, you failed to cover by 20 points. You don't do this 24/7 as a career.

The Dolphins are currently 3-3 on the year both straight-up and against the spread and the total has gone OVER in five of their first six games.

This is bound to change after this Saturday’s games with a featured ACC matchup between the No. 3 Tigers and the No. 5 Seminoles.

The view from the top of the latest AP college football poll remains unchanged with Alabama, Oregon, Clemson, Ohio State and Stanford all holding on to their current spot in the top five. I would not expect a great deal of change throughout the top 10 after this Saturday’s round of games, but a few teams holding down one of those spots will certainly be tested.
