Point Spread Weekly previews NASCAR, NBA All-Star Game, XFL and more
Editor Steve Makinen previews this issue:
This is a unique issue in that a couple of events different from what we’re used to showcasing take center stage — the Daytona 500 and the NBA All-Star Game. Rest assured, though, that with the college basketball season in full swing, we dedicate plenty of coverage to that as well as hockey, the XFL, MLB, golf and MMA. In fact, this is an unusually big issue with 11 feature stories, which could be a record for the 2 1/2 years of producing this fantastic sports betting weekly publication.

Josh Appelbaum’s Market Insights
With 139 games on tap today, bettors will have countless opportunities to maximize their edge. When betting totals, one system to keep an eye on when two good field-goal shooting teams go head-to-head (both 45% or higher). In these cases, the under is 113-77 (59%). This is due to the public overvaluing two "good" shooting teams and the books shading the line to the over. READ MORE.
Ron Flatter on horse racing
Another Kentucky Derby prep is the focus of the Ron Flatter Racing Pod. Fair Grounds track announcer John G. Dooley checks in from New Orleans to preview this weekend’s two divisions of the Risen Star Stakes. Also, National Thoroughbred Racing Association executive Keith Chamblin talks about the growth of handicapping contests. LISTEN HERE.
Not one but two divisions of today’s oversubscribed Risen Star Stakes should put two horses in the Kentucky Derby. But with Enforceable the favored face in an 11-horse crowd, one division stands out above the other. READ MORE.
Jeff Siegel’s Best Bets for Saturday, courtesy of Xpressbet
Jeff Siegel, Xpressbet’s racing analyst, provides his top plays on Friday and Saturday. On Friday, She’s Devoted was scratched and Roaring Fork finished out of the money.
RACE 7: SANTA ANITA
He’s fresh from a maiden win over this course and distance in his second career outing and with a very sharp recent workout appears likely to produce another significant forward move. Drawn comfortably inside to ensure a ground-saving trip, the Carla Gaines-trained gelding retains Drayden Van Dyke and projects to draft into a comfortable second flight position and then have every chance to quicken when ready from the quarter pole home. Let’s make him a strong straight play and rolling exotic single.
RACE 12: FAIR GROUNDS
Was impressed with his victory in the Lecomte Stakes and see no reason why this son of Tapit can’t come right back and win again. The Mark Casse-trained colt — a full brother to Wood Memorial winner Mohaymen — should get nothing but better as the distances increase. At this nine-furlong trip, he should be able to settle early and then produce another winning late kick. There’s plenty of value to be found at anywhere near his morning line of 7/2.
