Expert Handicapper
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!

ASA Free Play Saturday CBB
(NCAAB) Illinois vs. Wisconsin, 03/02/2024 1:00 PM
Total: 154.00 | -109.00 Over
#619/620 ASA FREE PLAY ON Over 154 Points – Illinois vs Wisconsin, Saturday at 1 PM ET - We have 2 of the top 20 most efficient offenses in CBB in this game with Illinois ranking 3rd & Wisconsin 19th. We can’t say the same for the defenses. Both defenses have fallen off drastically compared to last year’s numbers with Wisconsin ranking 54th in defensive efficiency (after finishing 19th last year) and Illinois is 95th in defensive efficiency (after finishing 26th last year). Not only are those number not great to say the least, both of these defenses have been worse as of late. Since Feb 1st Illinois is 270th in defensive efficiency allowing 1.10 PPP & Wisconsin is 85th allowing 1.01 PPP. The Illini have allowed at least 80 points in 5 of their last 6 games but offensive they are rolling putting up at least 80 points in 11 of their last 12 games. Wisconsin just allowed 70+ points in their last 2 games vs poor offensive teams. Maryland, who is 13th in offensive efficiency in Big 10 put up 70 points and Indiana, who is 11th in offensive efficiency in conference play, put up 74 points. Going back further, the Badgers have allowed an average of 74 PPG over their last 8 and faced only 2 top 35 offenses (efficiency wise) during that stretch. Offensively, both teams can shoot the ball. They both rank in the top 4 shooting teams in the Big 10 (eFG%) and both make more than 76% of their FT’s so we’ll get some extra points from the charity stripe here. Illinois is 20-8 to the OVER this year and even Wisconsin is 17-11 to the OVER for a combined 37-19 to the OVER. We expect at least 160 points in this one and with the opening line at 155 we’ll take the Over.
