2013 Free Sports PicksOne of the greatest advantages that the Internet has to offer to sports gamblers is the availability of free sports picks.

Visit our free picks page for many more winning sports picks!
It is always good to know what the gambling and sports experts are saying about the sport you are planning to bet on, whether it is football, baseball, hockey or horse racing. For a chance to get some free sports picks, the best thing gamblers can do - besides listening to sportscasters and reading the paper - is find different web sites on the Internet where people are talking about your sport. Forums and message boards dedicated to your sport are bound to be filled with lively conversations about who will be winning any particular game or race, or what the best point spreads might be to bet on. Read carefully, and you will find that you can get some fairly good free sports picks by seeing what team, player, horse, etc, is being given the best odds of winning. Forums or message boards that are dedicated to only one certain team or player will most likely be biased, so you might want to steer clear of those. Choose web sites and message boards that talk about the sport in general, and you'll find a great source for free sports picks.
2013 NCAA Final Four Picks
Louisville Cardinals - Winner of Midwest vs West Bracket
Syracuse Orange - Winner of South vs East Bracket
Syracuse Orange - Final Champion
2013 NCAA Men's Basketball Championship Predictions: Now that we have finally reached the Final Four in this year's tournament, it's time to give our updated 2013 NCAA Men's Basketball Championship predictions. Out of the four remaining teams, only one began the tournament as a top seed, which is the case of the No.1 March Madness team, the Louisville Cardinals.
Looking at the 2013 Final Four matchups, it's easy to see that the Cards certainly have the easiest matchup, as they take on the Wichita State Shockers. It's no coincidence that NCAA betting odds makers agree, listing Rick Pitino's bunch as the clear betting favorites to win the National Title this season. Currently, Louisville leads the pack as a 2/3 favorite, which translates to -150 in American (money-line) odds. The Michigan Wolverines follow suit, tagged with the second best odds to win the 2013 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament at +325.
The Syracuse Orange comes in at No.3 in this category with +400 odds to win it all. And finally, the chances that Wichita State will continue to "Shock" the basketball world is currently at a +1200 longshot. So, which team do I believe has the personnel, momentum and coaching to get the job done? I have to say that there are two teams that fit those criteria, and as a coincidence, it happens to be the two teams sitting atop the list of NCAA Title frontrunners. As good as Michigan has been, I believe that the Orange have everything to reach the Finals against the winner of Wichita State and Louisville. In the end, I have to side with Syracuse over Louisville and I will tell you why. Not only are these teams as evenly matched as any two we've seen in the finals in recent memory, but I believe that the difference will be in attitude. When this tournament started, there was no team with more to prove than Syracuse.
Highly underestimated, seeded only fourth in the East bracket, Jim Boeheim and the Orange have come into the tourney with a chip on their shoulder. Not only that, but the fact that they've beaten Cal, Indiana and Marquette to get to where they are tells me that they believe they're unbeatable right now.
As we very well know, in sports, confidence and momentum are two very powerful things. Thus, I'm gong to have to go with Syracuse to win it all this year, not only because of they are the best team, but also because they have the most attractive ROI (return on investment) out of the four remaining teams. At +400 ML, you would be out of your mind to pass up on an Orange bet!
2013 NBA Basketball Championship Predictions: The way the 2013 NBA basketball season is playing out, predicting which team will take home the Larry O'Brien Trophy may come down to one of three teams. Currently, the top five teams leading the way in the list of betting favorites to win the title are: Miami Heat (+220), Oklahoma City Thunder (+400), San Antonio Spurs (+700), Los Angeles Clippers (+800) and New York Knicks (+1200). Now, while all those teams are terrific bets, let's start eliminating the pretenders from the contenders.
First of all, there's no way the Knickerbockers are ready to make a run at the title, because of A. Lack of defensive presence and B. They're not getting past LBJ and the Heat. The Clippers, while they're in the midst of a terrific season, they would have to go deep into the playoffs before even being considered a legitimate threat. In my opinion, the Spurs are too old to compete against the rest of the West, and thus, it comes down to last year's finalists.
On paper, the Oklahoma City Thunder have the best team and talent, however, they lack the chemistry that a team like Miami possesses. Having that said, I don't think the Heat will be able to go all the way like they did last season. Teams and coaches are way too smart to allow the same strategy that worked last year to be implemented into the 2013 NBA playoffs successfully. Long story short, at +400 bucks, I believe that the OKC Thunder is by far the absolute best bet this season!

2013 MLB World Series Predictions - With the beginning of Spring Training looming, we now take a look into our crystal ball in order to try and predict, through the use of the latest odds, which team(s) have the best chances to win the 2013 World Series. For those that have had a look at this year's frontrunners, then you would have noticed that the entire landscape of the sport has gone through a metamorphosis. Teams that once were perennial title contenders are being overlooked all of the sudden.
Franchises like the New York Yankees, Texas Rangers, Philadelphia Phillies, Boston Red Sox and even the defending champion San Francisco Giants have been scudded down in order to make way for clubs like: Cincinnati Reds, Toronto Blue Jays, Washington Nationals, and others. So, out of these new list of frontrunners, which teams do I predict will be atop the list of contenders? For one, I think the Detroit Tigers are a team to fear this season. Now only do they have the personnel to win a title, but the way they've been progressing year-in and year-out, it would seem like a championship is in their near future, or else it's time to go back to the drawing board.
The beauty about the Tigers is also that they're listed as +700 money-line favorites along with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. I would have to say that either of those two teams makes a great bet, especially when your return on investment is +700! But in the end, I do believe that Jim Leyland, based on his experience and that of his players, will get the nod from me as my pick for the 2013 MLB World Series predictions champs!
Expert free sports picks baseball capper Tom Morgan predicts the New York Yankees winning the 2013 World Series. The last few years the Yankees came up short but this time around they look a bit stronger. Morgan goes on to say, "The Yanks have the pitching this season to win the division, hands down, no doubt. If they play their usual fall ball at its finest, I see them sliding head first all the way to the World Series victory!" If you are ready now, bet the 2013 World Series today!
Another way to find free sports picks is to visit online casino sportsbooks.

These experts will be talking about odds, spreads, favorites...all of the things that gamblers want to research before they place wagers. The best thing to do for reliable free football picks is to visit more than one online casino sportsbook and read articles on each of their sites. Compare the sports picks articles that you read and see if there are any common threads running throughout all of them. Taking some time to do your research can make a big difference when it's time to lay down your wagers, and with your carefully researched free sports picks, you may find that your sports gambling will be quite profitable!
