WHAT TO EXPECT
2012-13 College Basketball Service| 2012 College Football Service
"RAS" (established in 1996) is one of the most successful, respected, and influential college sports handicapping services in the industry. We combine a strong background in informational and fundamental handicapping with the use of high level statistical indicators and modeling to produce consistent winning results with fully transparent recordkeeping. Our edge in the college sports markets is clearly demonstrated by both our long term win rates and considerable average closing line value.
2012-2013 CBB (SIDES ONLY) "Sweet Spot" 70 Day ServiceWill run for first 10 weeks (70 days) of the season, November 9th-January 17th. This service will include all RAS sides, and all RAS second half plays during the most advantageous time of the season.
Number Of PlaysVolume can vary depending on the market, but last season we averaged 12.3 plays per week (sides only) during the first 10 weeks of the season, and we expect to have comparable volume again this season.
No Write-UpsSince 2008, RAS CBB side plays have not included write-ups. This decision has been made to improve overall efficiency of the service, allow for more time to be focused on core handicapping, and to prolong the value of certain information and methodolgy that the services utilizes.
Release TimesCBB side plays will typically be released around 8:00am PST on day of game. Release times can vary and are always subject to change depending on market conditions and the timing/availability of handicapping information, among other factors.

Second Half PlaysRAS handicappers have been posting second half plays in WNBA, CBB, and CFB for free in a thread at BettingTalk.com since May of 2009 and have generated a record of 156-123 (55.91%). These plays will continue to be posted on the forum and on our Twitter @RASpicks, but subcibers of the service will receive them via e-mail and/or text message at least 30 seconds before the general public.
Web Countdown Page - All plays will be released one at a time, at three minute intervals, via the web at www.RASpicks.com. This is the fastest and most reliable delivery method available. It ensures that all subscribers have equal access to plays as they are released. This page can also be accessed using a mobile device at m.raspicks.com.
*All subscribers will receive one login to the pick release page and simultaneous logins are not allowed.
E-mail - All plays will also be sent via e-mail as they are released on the web countdown page, but delivery time may be subject to delays depending on your ISP, spam filters, and other internet factors.
Text Messaging - All plays will also be sent via text message (by request) as they are released. Delays and reliability issues are common for several phone service providers. We do not recommend relying on text message as a primary method for receiving plays.
*All subscribers are allowed a combination of no more than three (3) e-mail addresses and/or phone numbers.
Advanced Warnings - A warning notice will be sent via e-mail and text message at least 2 to 5 minutes before any play is released to allow subscribers time to login to www.raspicks.com and be prepared for the release.
Rating & GradingSide plays will be rated at 1.0, 1.5, or 2.0 units. Total plays will always be rated at 1.0 unit. Totals have historically had more edge than sides, but they are capped at 1.0 unit due to lower limits and tougher market conditions. All plays will be released and graded with a consensus line from major offshore sportsbooks (typically Bookmaker & Pinnacle) at time of release. All plays will be listed on the Pick Archive page no more than 10 minutes after tip-off for monitoring purposes. *Records of all second half plays will be kept separately and will not be included in the normal season records.
Line MovementDue to the strong following of the service and our focus on small market conferences, it should be expected that lines on all plays will move significantly within 5-20 seconds of release! It can be a challenge for bettors of all experience levels to place wagers before movement. It is essential to optimize your process and be prepared to place wagers immediately upon release in order to take full advantage of this service. Failure to do this will result in having to place wagers at lines worse than what we release and grade with, thus losing some if not all edge that the service provides. We recommend experimenting with several different sportsbooks (some move lines faster than others) and betting methods (phone/online) to see what works best for you. Do not expect perfect results in your first few attempts. When you miss the initial line movement, it is usually best to wait to see if the line moves back in your favor at some point in the day. Timing when to bet and shopping for the best numbers will always maximize your value. Please carefully review the RAS User Guide for more helpful tips.
Line AvailabilityNot all sportsbooks will post CBB lines at our release time. In order to get full value from this service, make sure you have access to sportsbooks who offer CBB side lines on all college games by 8:00am PST day of game or sooner.
