Victor is fast becoming the most popular tipster on the WantAWinner.com website after he racked up another profitable weekend in the English Premier League.
The canny punter – who says he’s definately a “value chaser” picked up a +50% yield on the weekend with a 3-3 record on his longer value bets.
With winning bets on Liverpool (2.88), Middlesbro (2.55) and Arsenal (2.60) our top ranking tipster pulled in more than enough profits to cover the losses on Portsmouth, Newcastle and Fulham.
Victor is now 26-29 overall in the English Premier League, with a tidy profit of +2259 units, and is showing a very impressive +41% yield after 55 bets.
We’ll all be looking to see what he’s picking this weekend.

What are players betting at Pinnacle Sports Book?
New Orleans +2.5 -104 v. Chicago
The Bears originally opened at -3 (-120) at home in the NFC Championship Game. The early bettors pounced on the Saints with larger volume driving the price downward. Following Chicago’s narrow overtime win against Seattle last week, the public appears to be on the Saints bandwagon heading into the Championship Game. The line moved all the way down to Chicago -1 before we started receiving Bears action, which has pushed the number back up to 2.5.
New England +3 +110 v. Indianapolis
We originally opened the Colts as 3-point favorites at +104 as we expected bettors would move the line quickly off the 3. Early volume came in on Indy, but was immediately followed by buyback on the Patriots. While the bet count favors New England by a 3-to-2 ratio at this point, there is much more volume on Indianapolis reaching its first Super Bowl with Peyton Manning at the helm. As game day approaches, it won’t be shocking to see this game move off the 3 if players continue to back the Colts at home.
Our NFL Spread Tipster “Cheesehead” hit his marks during last weekend’s divisional playoffs winning all three of his recommended bets ATS.
He took the visitors in three of the matchups, favouring the Eagles (+5.0), the Seahawks (+9.5) and the Pats (+5.0) for a trifecta of winning tips.
The Pats won outright over the Chargers, whiel the other two sides were able to keep it close and cover the spread.
That’s enough to push the rabid Green Bay Packers fan (don’t hold that against him) into a profit now with an 8-5 record since he started during the holiday season.

We’ve received a bit of information from one of our sharper players who has been watching the money and odds movements at top internet bookmaker PinnacleSports.
Indianapolis +4 -106 v. Baltimore
The Ravens originally opened at -3 (-115) and we saw early action, some which was sharp, for the home team. After moving the line, we received mixed buyback on Indy with two-way action after that. The sharps are clearly favoring Baltimore at this point.
Philadelphia +5 +103 v. New Orleans
We opened this game with the Saints listed as 4-point favorites and the early money on New Orleans drove the line upward. There was sporadic buyback on Philly until the line hit 5 and since then balanced action has been coming in. The sharper money is on the Saints at home and New Orleans has received nearly 1 1/2 times as many bets at this point.
Seattle +9.5 -109 v. Chicago
Chicago opened as 7.5-point home favorites and the sharps immediately jumped on the NFC’s top seed. We didn’t see any major Seattle action until the line reached 9.5 and then Seahawks money continued to bring the line back to where it currently sits at Bears -9.5 (+101). Although the sharp players favor the Bears, the public favors Seattle by a ratio of 5-to-2.
New England +5 -102 v. San Diego
The Chargers opened as 6-point favorites at home versus the three-time world champion Patriots. Early money was on the Patriots, but some sharp players played San Diego giving 6. Smaller New England bets continued to come in followed by some larger volume plays on the home Chargers. This was followed by balanced action once the line hit 5. The bet count at this point favors the Patriots at a 3-to-2 margin.

Our leading European football tipster Victor struck again on Saturday when he landed two of his three value bets for a tidy payout.
Victor nominated Sheffield Utd to upset Arsenal at 7.50 – which they did by a 1-0 scoreline – and also Bolton to beat Portsmouth at 2.05
He couldn’t quite land the trifecta with third choice Tottenham losing 0-1 at home to Liverpool but it was still an impressive performance.
Three $100 bets would have returned $955 back for a tasty profit of $655 – so I hope that you got to celebrate the New Year with a good bonus.

Let me give a belated welcome to Larry, the latest tipster to try his luck in the extremely tough NBA field.
Larry started on Friday when he successfully tipped the Toronto Raptors to get up over the New Jersey Nets, and continued today by beat the spread by half a point when the Lakers kept to close against the Chicago Bulls.
That win puts Larry on top of the NBA pile with a 2-0 record, although how long he stays there is another story.

Sometimes sports betting is easy – especially in hindsight – but we have to give a big thank you to the Phoenix Suns who set a franchise record tonight by winning their 15th NBA game in a row.
Their victims tonight were the Toronto Raptors who never really looked like troubling the Suns who cruised to a 115-98 win enroute to the victory.
Andre Stoudemire lead the effort with 28 points and 10 rebounds as the Suns cruised to a 33-25 1Q lead and 53-44 at the half – and they were 28 points ahead during the 3rd Q before easing back.
If you fancy Phoenix to win game #16, then they’re priced at around 1.40 (-250) to win on Wednesday night at the Denver Nuggets.
Victor is your typical value punter, he will only take a punt if he thinks that the odds are on his side.
He started his tips on the site in November and so far he has been on a hot run – running up an 18-10 record on some pretty long odds and running up a profit of over 2,000 points.
He is back this weekend (Dec 16th/17th) with five picks in the English Premier League where he thinks that the bookmakers have been a little too generous with the prices.
