Here is the betting breakdown and profit calculation if you bet $220 to win $200 on every underdog ATS noted above.
$200 x 28 wins = $5,600
$220 x 12 losses = $2,640
2021 season profit = $2,960 (+14.8 units at 1 unit per game)
Return on Investment (ROI) = 37.0%
2021 season profit betting at reduced juice sportsbooks using -107 vig = $3,032
Betting an additional 25% of straight bets or $50 on every moneyline offered and selected.
$50 x 21 wins = $1,945
$50 x 19 losses = $950
2021 season ML profit = $995
Total profit betting $220 on every underdog pick ATS (-110) and $50 on every pick on the moneyline = $3,955
Dime bettors betting $1,100 on every selection ATS won a net profit of $14,800.
It was a special season indeed picking NFL winners with exclusively underdogs to point out potential value and how to earn more betting on the moneyline along with the point spread.
My past history as an NFL point spread prognosticator includes 8 straight winning seasons and a 57.3% ATS mark on nearly 650 plays when I sold selections as a top of the leaderboard sports handicapper. Despite requests to continue and join other advisory services, I no longer tout or sell selections to the benefit of others. Instead, I contribute to other companies and media outlets as a compensated sports betting analyst and expert, and have continued to provide free picks. That’s resulted in solid NFL results the past five seasons posting underdog picks each week at OSGA and updating here at Vegas Sports Zone.
Following a 28-12 ATS (70%) record in the 2021 NFL season, the most recent 5-year record picking only NFL underdogs is now 130-91 ATS (58.8%) with 68 outright winners.
Thank you for your support and chip-ins as I continue to provide information you can bet on. I look forward to providing more Fairway Football Forecasts in the seasons ahead and hope you profit from the experience.
