The whole premise of newsletters being a way to win is the problem. Have to pick games often without seeing what happens on Monday, you have no idea which way the lines are moving, have no chance to analyze the market and who's betting what...its all guess work. Imagine if we all had to make our bets on Monday morning and didn't have a chance to change our positions. Some of us would be able to maybe win 53-54%, but most would be 50/50 because that's all it is, wild guessing. Maybe in a past age this all made more sense, but with line moves, all the data and analysis we can look at with extra time and the ability to read the market now that didn't exist before and I'd say if you are still betting like a newsletter reader then you are just doomed.
Mendoza Line Newsletter Tracking Through September 29, 2019:
Not every newsletter gets posted every week, and I'll try to note when the record doesn't include every week of the season.
Another note is that the grading is based on the line indicated in the newsletter at the time of publication, not the closing line. Many of these newsletters will claim a win against the best available line as it moves throughout the week, but these records reflect the outcome against the line they were willing to make a play on in their newsletter.
There are no plays pending for Monday Night Football.

He's smart, he focuses on the lower profile games and conferences. Look at the tout picks on any weekend - chock full of games involving high profile teams, and TV games. They have no inside knowledge of anything, but they advertise and people want to bet what they can watch.
