Expert Handicapper
The owners of American Sports Analysts (ASA), Lee Kostroski & Mike Merlet, have a combined 50+ years in the sports betting industry and have learned through firsthand experience what works and what doesn’t. Both started with Doc’s Enterprises, Lee in the late 80’s and Mike in the early 90’s. After learning the handicapping trade from one of the oldest in the business, they started ASA Inc in 1997 and have been going strong ever since. They have been known throughout the industry for their success on BIG GAMES including their 10* Midwest Game of the Year. ASA is located in Madison, WI and a foundation of their handicapping prowess revolves around the heart of the country– especially the Big Ten. ASA has appeared on numerous radio shows throughout the country as special expert football guests including Tampa, New Orleans, Madison, Milwaukee, Memphis, Las Vegas, and Denver just to name a few. They were also featured on the ESPN website with gaming writer Chad Millman during the 2011 Season. ASA’s handicapping methods have evolved through years of hard work and research being the anchor of their success. Rather than implementing one specific strategy as many handicappers do, they intertwine many different philosophies when it comes to making football, basketball, hockey, and baseball selections. They utilize their massive database that goes back over 30 years and can give them in-depth information on any situation you can think of when it comes to handicapping. That is not where they stop, however. They also research stats and film each week to evaluate the upcoming match ups on the field along with speaking with their personal contacts throughout the country (especially in theMidwest). On top of that, they analyze each point spread (and their movements) comparing them with their own power ratings to find where an edge might be found. Lastly, their predictive analytics or math models predict the outcomes of games based solely on numbers and statistics that are not swayed by the human element. So, as you can see, just because a game may fall into a successful system or the scheduling looks good to go against or with a certain team, that doesn’t mean that ASA automatically uses it as a selection. It must go through their in-depth process with all things considered before they give it the ASA stamp of approval. Looking at games from all these angles gives ASA the best of all worlds when it comes to handicapping. Their handicapping theories have proven successful over the years which has them as one of the more tenured experts in the industry. Lee & Mike at ASA have stood the test of time in an industry that makes it very tough to do so. Their 50+ years of experience will give you the WINNING EDGE you need. Sports wagering is an investment and it is time you invest in the known commodity of ASA!

Free Picks
ASA Free Play Sunday NFL
(NFL) New England vs. NY Jets, 09/19/2021 1:00 PM
Point Spread: -6.00 | 100.00 New England (Away)
#285 ASA FREE PLAY ON New England -6 over NY Jets, Sunday at 1 PM ET - Patriots lost last Sunday 17-16 at home vs Miami but completely outplayed the Fins. New England was +8 first downs, +134 total yards, and +13 minutes time of possession. Now off a loss they should have won, we expect a great effort. We love Belichick off a loss + facing a rookie QB which he usually eats alive. The Jets had practically no running game last week vs Carolina (2.6 YPC) and they are facing a better defensive front this week. With no running game the offensive success will fall on rookie QB Wilson who will also be without his starting left tackle Becton who was injured last week. That’s a tall ask vs a Belichick led defense that thrives and crushing rookie QB’s. The Patriots have won 18 of the last 20 in this series and the Jets have covered only 2 of their last 14 division games. New England wins by a TD or more here.
ASA Free Play Saturday CFB
(NCAAF) Nebraska vs. Oklahoma, 09/18/2021 12:00 PM
Total: 62.00 | -110.00 Over
#125/126 ASA FREE PLAY ON Over 62 Points – Nebraska vs Oklahoma, Saturday at 12 PM ET - This total opened 60 and has been bet up to 62. Our power numbers have this total at 65 so still a full FG worth of value on the Over. The Sooners have already scored 116 points in just 2 games this year so their offense is humming to say the least. That’s nothing new at OU as they’ve finished in the top 7 nationally in scoring each of the last 6 seasons and never averaged below 40 PPG in any of those years. The Nebraska defense won’t slow this team down. The Huskers have looked very good defensively the last 2 weeks, however those games were vs an FCS team and vs a Buffalo team that as many key players as any team in college FB and they are undergoing a completely revamped offense with a new coaching staff. Let’s not forget in their season opener the Huskers allowed 30 points to an Illinois team that lost their starting QB in the first quarter of that game. Oklahoma’s defense was supposed to be improved this year however in their 1 game vs an FBS opponent this year, Tulane put up 35 points on the Sooners. OU had 40 in that game but it could have been much worse. They didn’t punt in the game. 2 interceptions thrown by QB Rattler, a shut out on downs, and a missed FG were the only possessions they did not score. Last week they scored on every possession except 1. The Husker offense has been decent scoring 106 points in their 3 games this season. QB Martinez has looked much better this year completing 62% of this passes with no interceptions. He’s always a threat with his legs as well (256 yards rushing this year already) which makes it tough on the defense. Both teams love to play fast paced so we should see a lot of offensive snaps in this game. The weather looks perfect in Norman with nice temps and light winds. Okie is always a threat to get 50+ by themselves. Nebraska will have to score to keep up in this game. Frost knows if they are conservative they may get roasted here. 60 point totals are no big deal in OU games. In fact, they have reached at least 60 total points in 31 of their last 40 games. This is an OVER play.
