American Sports Analyst American Sports Analyst
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!

#702 ASA PLAY ON Nevada -3 over San Francisco, Wednesday at 9:00 PM ET



This is a terrible spot for San Francisco. They just played 4 games in 5 days in the east coast in Connecticut. Now they have to travel back to the west coast to face a Nevada team that has been at home since last Friday. San Fran played games last Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and then again on Sunday so they will be playing their 5th game in 8 days here. The Dons were 2-2 on their east coast trip but this line is sitting lower than it should be in our opinion because one of their wins was vs Virginia. They beat the Cavs 61-60 using an 8-0 run in the final 2:00 minutes. They caught UVA on a poor shooting night as they hit only 3 of 12 from beyond the arc (25%). That was the difference in the game as San Francisco mad 13 three pointers. We feel both results were aberrations as SF is not a great 3-point shooting team hitting only 33% on the year. Tonight they face a Nevada team that is 3-0 on the season including a solid win @ Nebraska last Thursday. They backed that up with a 12-point win at home vs Pacific team that finished 2 games ahead of San Francisco in the WCC last season. Nevada was favored by 5.5 in their game with Pacific and now just 2 facing San Francisco who is in a much worse situational spot than Pacific was when they faced the Wolfpack on Sunday. HC Steve Alford has Nevada playing terrific defense this year as they’ve held their 3 opponents (North Dakota St, Nebraska, and Pacific) to 48, 66, and 58 points respectively. They limit their opponents to only 0.94 PPP and their eFG% defense ranks 5th nationally. We also don’t anticipate SF going wild from 3-point range as they did vs UVA as Nevada allows only 24% from deep. Tired legs vs a top notch defense usually doesn’t equal success. We like Nevada in this game.
