My name is Doug Fitz. I live in Las Vegas and have been handicapping and betting sports since 1985.
I have no interest in selling my picks. I only strive to establish a solid and honest reputation among the sports betting community and my followers.
I have appeared and co-hosted on several local radio shows, most notably THE LAS VEGAS SPORTSLINE and VSIN.COM.
I was a frequent contributor to the HOT CORNER feature in the Las Vegas Review Journal sports section year round and the 1st person to hit 100 wins (past record:100-89-5). I also write several feature articles analyzing the NFL in the Sunday sports section.
I participate in the Las Vegas Review Journal's NFL Challenge contest matched up against other well known handicappers, LVRJ sports writers and Las Vegas sportsbook directors. In 2011 and 2015 I won this contest and I placed 2nd in 2009, 2013 and 2016. In 2017 I won the Las Vegas Review Journal College Bowl Challenge contest.
All my full game plays (they only offer full game sides and totals) are independently monitored at Capperswatchdog.com. Please note that the lines I post from the 3 below listed books may differ from lines available to me at Cappers Watchdog. This is beyond my control.
Please follow me on Twitter @fitz_doug. Some plays are posted only on Twitter (primarily 2nd half plays) but the outcomes will be included on my "results" page. I don't delete any of my tweets.
I operate and maintain the site totally on my own which is why this is not a glamorous site. I'd rather spend my time giving out good, solid information and plays rather than having a site full of ads or useless marketing hype. I don't include write ups with the plays because, after all; it is a free site. Be rest assured though that my plays are properly analyzed and studied.
Success in sports betting can come only by first leaving your emotions and opinions completely out of your handicapping and replacing those with statistical and/or situational based analysis and research. Systems and strong situational factors are the basis for most of my plays.
I don't promise or claim ridiculous winning percentages as some sites do because those claims are fairy tales no matter how good you are or what form of handicapping you use. My results are honest, good or bad.
Sports betting should be treated as a long term investment strategy just like the stock market. Anyone can have very good or very bad short term winning or losing streaks and I certainly want plenty of the former but long term consistency is the goal I hope to achieve. I personally wager on the selections I post on the site so I do put my money where my mouth is.
Pending plays are listed on my "plays" page. All of my previous plays can be accessed by clicking one of the TWITTER links from any page. You don't need a twitter account to view the plays from the links.
My "results" page tracks my results in each sport and total results for the current season. Sports that don't have unique records are included in the total results. I no longer post win/loss records because I play a lot of spread and money line dogs basically rendering wins or losses irrelevant. Units won or lost and ROI (return on investment) only are posted on the "results" page.
I don't have a set number of plays. Some days will produce no plays while other days may have several.
The lines or odds are the best numbers from Stations, Westgate or Boyd sports books in Las Vegas at the time the play(s) is posted.
All football and basketball pointspreads or totals are -110 unless otherwise noted.
All baseball plays are with listed pitchers. Any game not starting with either listed pitcher, postponed, suspended or not completed by Las Vegas rules will be considered no action. 1st 5 inning plays are listed as "F5".
I'll make every effort to post the plays in a timely manner.
