New news for August:

I will be giving out mock Westgate Supercontest free picks TY. I will post them on Twitter, VFV, and here every Friday afternoon at 17:00 ET (14:00 PT). I would suggest 6% BR per week on a 5-team round-robin including just the 3's plus the 5. That's 10 3-teamers at 0.5% and put 1% on the 5. I will power-rank them 1-5 based on my personal Wapower ratings versus the WR numbers. The lofty goal is 60-25 for 70%, but one 5-0 week should provide a profit for the season.

NFL Reg Season 2012: 58-47-3 (55.2%)
Winning Weeks: 10-7

Preseason 2012 was 9-10-1 (check FreeSportsMonitor for the breakdown, see the widget).

We'll be using ViewfromVegas.com, Twitter.com/marcbryanjacob, freesportsmonitor.com, and pickmonitor.com to post any free picks. During February-July, we'll keep to a basic sked for releasing: weeknites at 6 and Sat-Sun around noon. I'd suggest checking Twitter though at 5, 6:30, 7:45, and 9:30 on a typical weeknite (just to see if we have anything that day). And maybe every hour and a half on Sat-Sun, starting at noon. It's still possible we'll throw out the occasional free one on single-game matchups, but the new focus will be on futures. We have been dabbling in the CFL this year.

If you're thinking of opening any new sportsbook accounts, go to the Where to Bet page (near the bottom) for suggestions.
