Stephen Nover's NBA All-Access Season/Playoffs

Yearly (11/01/2014 - 11/01/2015)

Everybody has their different styles. My style is studying each game closely. I handicap the games 10 days in advance, making detailed notes that I check to update. Then when the lines come out, I'm ready to pick and choose my spots.

I'm not a shot-gunner. I'll pick my spots. This fits my comfort zone and bankroll. I incorporate matchup analysis, statistics, history but most of all situational aspects into my NBA 'capping. That's why handicapping the games so far in advance is crucial for me. I don't want to miss any potential situational edge.

This system has worked out well for me. I don't beat the NBA every year. But I've had far more winning seasons than losing ones. My long-term record is 209-165-10 on my last 384 games for 56 percent. My short term record is 11-6-1 on my last 18 plays, which all were in the playoffs and included finishing 5-0.

Stephen Nover's College Football Season/Bowl Package

Yearly (11/01/2014 - 02/01/2015)

College presents opportunities that the NFL doesn't where sometimes you can actually find line value.

I've beaten the colleges the past two years averaging 57.5 percent while hitting 64 percent in the bowls by combining many handicapping factors such as matchup analysis, statistics, history, weather and situational elements. Information is the key because there are just so many teams and conferences on the betting board now.

I don't rule out any game or conference. It's a task to find the time to adequately handicap each game. So I'm fortunate that I have many sources to rely on. Many stem from having been a sportswriter/sports editor for daily newspapers in the Midwest, South and West for more than 20 years and having been the sports gaming writer for the Las Vegas Review-Journal for 13 years while also having covered the UNLV football team as the team beat writer for several years.

I have the knowledge, experience and resources necessary to win. I've won the past two years and I fully expect to turn a tidy profit again this season.

Florida vs. Georgia, 11/01/2014 15:30 EDT

Point Spread: +11½/-110 Florida

Sportsbook: TopBet

First note this game is being played in Jacksonville, a somewhat neutral site.

Next note that Georgia has beaten only one SEC team, Missouri, that has an above .500 record in the SEC. The Bulldogs other four league games have been against South Carolina, Tennessee, Vanderbilt and Arkansas. Those teams are a combined 2-17 in the SEC. One of those wins was South Carolina's victory against Georgia.

Next note that Georgia still will be without suspended star running back Todd Gurley. He won't be eligible to return until Nov. 15.

Florida was idle last week after losing in embarrassing fashion to Missouri at home, 42-13. That score is highly misleading, though. Missouri scored a combined four touchdowns on interception touchdown returns and special teams touchdowns.

There is nothing wrong with Florida's defense. It's good. The Gators hold foes under 26 points a game and to fewer than 318 yards per game. They've forced 16 turnovers in six games.

The key here is Florida finally has had enough of Jeff Driskel, who has been dreadful. The Trevon Harris era is now upon us and it should give the Gators a spark because the freshman is a big-time athlete, who can throw and run.

This is a monster rivalry game and Florida coach Will Muschamp is coaching for his job. The Gators certainly won't lack motivation and with a tough defense and the right quarterback they will make this game very interesting.

(Editor's note: West Coast guru and long-time Vegas wise guy Stephen Nover won his Mountain West Conference Game of the Year last week and has found his Mountain West Conference Total of the Year this week in addition to also finding a strong Pac-12 play. Don't miss these big winners!)
