One of Dr. Alan’s Big Wins at Westgate!

I was told that Doc Alan was one of the best NFL handicappers in the country and I quickly became a believer. In fact, I have personally wagered on all his selections this year in the NFL. The result? He is an incredible 21 wins – 8 losses on the season through the start of week 5. He is hitting 72% winners against the spread!

A three-time top 15 finisher in the prestigious Westgate Las Vegas Super Contest, Alan dissects every game, determines which teams are motivated for this particular match-up, and then, he picks his spots. He does the homework you need to do to win at sports, and he has the track record to prove it. We will have 5 Best Bets in one package next Sunday. Look for it at
