Andy Iskoe of Logical Approach
has a long term record of consistent and sustained football handicapping success
for the past three decades, highlighted by the following accomplishments
-- Multiple Top 20 Finishes in the prestigious Westgate/LVH/Hilton NFL
SuperContest including a third place finish in 2002 and a tenth place finish in 2008
-- Multiple Top 10 Finishes in other Las Vegas Based College and Pro Football Handicapping Contests including a second and third place finish in LeRoys 2006 College Football Contest
-- Deep runs in several High End and/or Invitational "Bracket" Contests sponsored by leading Sports Books
Clients to Andy's Logical Approach Newsletters and Premium Service Selections
have also enjoyed repeated successes over the years with Premium Selections and College
& Pro Newsletter Top and Featured Weekly Selections plus College Bowl and NFL
But perhaps his most impressive accomplishment as a public handicapper took
place in 2002
Andy writes a weekly NFL handicapping column for the Las Vegas-based newspaper Gaming Today in which he makes a Side or Totals selection against the pointspread for every game played each week. For week 7 of 2002 he was an astounding 14 for 14 ATS (Against The Pointspread)! -- in print!!
The odds against that occuring are 16,383-1!
You can check it out! It was Gaming Today's Issue # 42 of 2002 (October 15-21, 2002)
A year earlier, in 2001, he won the weekly $10,000.oo top prize by hitting 17 of 17 selections in the Stardust's All American Football Contest!
The odds against going 17 for 17 are 131,071 to 1!!!
Andy was a long time co-host of the popular Saturday night edition of the Stardust
Line Radio Show for nearly a decade until the Stardust closed in 2006.
Additionally, even prior to moving to Las Vegas in 1991 Andy was a popular guest on several other national weekly radio programs during the football season.
Over his 25 years in Las Vegas -- and continuing to this day -- Andy has openly and freely shared, and continues to share -- on radio and in print -- his thoughts, analyses, opinions and predictions on upcoming college and pro football games
Now YOU have the opportunity to share in Andy's expertise BEFORE the general public gets his final top opinions by subscribing to one or more of Logical Approach's outstanding football Newsletters or by becoming a private client of the Premium Selection Service.
Take advantage of his expertise with one or more of his weekly Football Newsletters or get his top Premium plays of the week -- Sides and Over/Unders -- Pro and College -- by subscribing to his Premium Selections Service.
Please read on for details on each of the available offerings.
For the 2016 football season we
will again be offering a single Late Premium Selection Service that features our
best, top rated releases in college and pro football each week. Our expertise historically
has been in the NFL but the past few seasons have also seen phenomenal success in
college football as well. Although we generally get off to a good start early in
the season, especially in handicapping Overs and Unders, we consistently hit our
stride over the second half of the season which explains why Logical Approach's founder,
Andy Iskoe, has had several Top Ten finishes in the prestigious Las Vegas Hilton
SuperContest (now the LVH SuperContest) -- since moving to Las Vegas in 1991 and
why he has also had several of TOP 3 FINISHES in season-long football contests in
addition to numerous other impressive accomplishments.
Although our College & Pro Football Newsletter Selections have consistently
been winners and will serve the needs of most small to moderate players, Newsletters
by themselves have limitations in that they can only assess a limited amount of information
prior to publication on Sunday evenings/Monday mornings. Our Late Premium Selection
Service (also known in the past as a Late Telephone Service) builds upon the foundation
laid by the College & Pro Football Newsletter by looking deeper into each college
and pro matchup, digging into more of the statistics that are not available until
mid week, and makes use of historical models that build upon data already accumulated
during the current and prior seasons. Of course, a major benefit of the Late Premium
Selection Service is that the selections are able to consider injuries, other personnel
moves that occur during the week and, perhaps most importantly, adjustments to the
Opening Line which can often increase or decrease the attractiveness of a Newsletter
Selection depending upon the direction and magnitude of the move or can turn Newsletter
Opinions or Leanings into more strongly valued recommendations. Unlike most handicapping
services on the market at Logical Approach we have just one and only one Service
and we do not have a 900 number. All clients of the Late Premium Selection Service
receive the same, identical selections. The Service runs through all post season
College Bowls, the NFL Playoffs and the Super Bowl. There is only a one time fee
when you initially subscribe. We do not ask you for any additional fees to take advantage
of any special promotions such as Thanksgiving Weekend, Homecoming Games, Conference
or Other Games or the Year, etc. Although we may make such offers to the public at
large, any such selections are included in the Late Premium Selection Service. This
is a single complete package that also has one additional benefit not offered by
most other handicapping service -- the ability to have personal consultations during
the season. Whether you have questions on the games we recommend, or questions on
other games of interest to you, or questions on handicapping in general, as a subscriber
to the Late Premium Selection Service you are entitled to telephone or e-mail Andrew
Iskoe with your question and you will receive a prompt response by email, Instant
Messaging online or by telephone (or a mutually agreeable time to continue the conversation
will be set). This benefit alone can be well worth several times the cost of the
Service and makes Logical Approach rather unique in the Sports Advisory industry.
Unlike the majority of sports
services we have one -- and only one -- Premium Selections Service.
We do not have various clubs or Special Games of the Year for which you pay extra. If we do have promotions such as Special Games or Thanksgiving Weekend Specials those selections are all included in your Premium Selection Package and any games we may offer to the public at large as "Games of the Year" are included in the full season package and are identified to you as such whenever they might occur. Full season (or balance-of-season) subscribers pay just one fee for the entire season and receive each and every selection we release as a recommended play.
Full season subscribers receive an Access Code that they can use to get the Selections on our Website in addition to receiving the selections by email.
Selections will be released throughout the week by being posted on our website, occasionally as early as Monday when the lines are first available, and will be completely finalized by 4 PM Fridays, Pacific time at which time they will be available by email, website posting and telephone.
This weekly publication contains
our top early selections with write ups and analyses on our top Games of the Week,
one college and one pro, plus write ups and analyses on three more college and three
more pro 'Featured' games, and also selections on what we call the 'Best of the Rest'
plus leanings on 'the Rest' of the games on that week's schedule.
Although the selections are based upon our early analysis of the upcoming week's schedule and are subject to be modified for Late Premium Selection Service clients, the top selections are designed to stand on their own and 2000's 18-2 ATS run over the last five weeks of the NFL regular season capped an outstanding season which was followed by successful season after successful season with outstanding consistency in the post-season, especially in our College Bowl Side and Total Selections.
The format for our College & Pro Newsletter is pretty straightforward. Each issue begins with an informative and useful article that relates to a key area of college or pro football (some of which are highlighted below.
We feature 4 College Football Selections and Writeups with one game designated as out Top Selection of the Week and the other 3 as Featured Selections of the Week. We then provide selections on all other games on the betting board that week, separating those selections into "Best of the Rest" (Playable Opinions) and "The Rest" (Leans).
We then repeat the process for the NFL schedule with a Top Selection of the Week, 3 Featured Selections, Best of the Rest and The Rest. Additionally we provide several Over/Under Selections for Totals players (usuall from 4 to 8 each week) that are rated in strength similar to out "Best of the Rest" Side Selections (Playable Opinions).
Finally, each issue contains up to 4 college and 4 NFL "Money Line Recommendations" for teams we project as having a high probablity of winning their game Straight Up, without regard to the pointspread. These selections usually involve attractive Underdogs that carry a "plus" price on the Money Line or short priced favorites.
Come College Bowl and NFL Playoff time we provide Rated Selections on EVERY SIDE & TOTAL -- rating each Side and Total Selection from a low of 1 Star to a high of 3 Stars with Sides/Totals rated 3 Stars or higher considered as Recommended Selections.
The Newsletter selections do form the foundation for our Late Premium Selection Service. We often include special studies and current developments and frequently inform our readers of the many new research findings we uncover each season.
The Newsletter also has a Spreadsheet containing unique and valuable data to assist you in evaluating all the games and is available separately on this website, offerred FREE to both subscribers and non-subscribers.
If you are content to focus on just a handful of solid recommendations each week, our College & Pro Football Newsletter will be your BEST BET this season!

Devoted entirely to NFL Teasers,
in each issue we present and rank the teams showing the strongest likelihood of covering
as part of a two team, 6 point Teaser, along with recommendations as to how you might
play them (round robins, keys, etc.). Season to date statistics plus a weekly educational/informative
feature (i.e. current season Teaser results, Sunday Night/Monday night hedging strategy,
six season team recaps) supplement the selections to give you a full appreciation
of what may be the best bet in football.
We first published our Teaser Newsletter way back in 1988 and have had great success in beating Teasers -- one of the most misunderstood of wagers but also one of the most profitable ones as well. Sports books have increasingly had to change the payouts on Teasers because of the great success the players have had in beating them -- many by using our Newsletter!
Since 1988 we have recommended over 3,000 teams and over 70% of these teams have been successful in two team, 6 point Teasers.
Many Features from the NFL Teaser Newsletter present revealing information and insights and are
posted on this website several weeks after publication in the Newsletter. To be amongst the
FIRST to get and benefit from these exclusive studies and revelations be sure to subscribe today.
Features from past seasons and planned again for this season include :
Historical Team by Team Teaser Success Rates
Strategies for "Hedging" & "Middling" With Teasers
Mid Season Team by Team Teaser Success Report
Historical Teaser Success Rates By Role and Pointspread Range
6 vs. 6 1/2 vs. 7 Point Teasers -- An In-Depth Study
Drawn from the material that had
been the basis of our former Pointspread Encyclopedia, this weekly sheet presents
the strongest plays according to the Trends and Situations applicable that week.
All college and pro lines games are rated from a low of 1 to a high of 5 Star Selections.
In the NFL Over/Unders are also rated and we indicate games for which there are No Side Selections because there are no historical trend or tendency advantages.
This is a bare boned Newsletter that does not bore you with the specific trends and situations behind the selections but, unlike many other Trends-based Newsletters or services, our Selections consider the totality of the teams' current situations and do not focus in on or rely upon just one or a few high percentage, but isolated, Trends/Situations developed from our proprietary computer program that determines those profiles on a week to week basis.
