Vox Pix (1)

Good day, readers. It's a little strange being out of that box of mine. Exhilarating, but strange. That box can be somewhat constraining, so I've created this weekly blurb-- a quick rundown of my football wagers. Last season, I released many of my picks on The Daily Dose but the show was unfortunately cancelled. Now, this website will validate the Vox as northeast Ohio's premier handicapper and, best of all, my selections are completely complimentary! All we ask is that you read Vox religiously, bet responsibly, and realize that I cannot and will not win every game. Anybody in this business that claims they can is a fraud. What I will do is build your bankroll through disciplined decisions. While you are up nights worrying about whether to start Laverneous Coles or Joey Galloway for your fantasy team, I will be doing the necessary legwork to expose each week's oddsmaker error(s).

Too bad I missed out against OU getting +35. Even when OSU does manhandle a foe, Tressel won't run it up too bad-- especially against an in-stater. Let's go with the over (52 points) in the Florida v Miami match-up.

Last week; 1-0 (Missouri -9)

Cowboys (-5.5) over Browns. I typically have little confidence in week 1 prognostications, since no real precedent has been set, but this is probably the surest first week play you'll ever find. The loaded and hungry Cowboys against an injured, overrated and poorly coached Browns squad. The name on the door is Cleveland? That's what I'm afraid of, Phil.

Bills (-1) over Seahawks. I typically like home teams that are a virtual pick against an evenly matched opponent. Buffalo will probably win a wild card and Seattle will finally catch some bad karma this season-- retribution, no doubt, for that commercial featuring Hasselbeck's slap-the-face dance move. And his annoying social conservative sister-in-law.

Last week: N/A


Who is the Vox?

SamVox is not a professional handicapper, but a premier one. He has been gambling his entire adult life and has experienced every sickening turn and nasty twist of fate that occurs during a football season. What distinguishes the Vox is his amazing intuition, astoundingly long memory, attention to detail and preparation, aversion to propaganda and access to the industry's sharpest bettors. He is a two time Pick'Em champion and went 20-12-2 against the spread with his Vox Pix in 2007. His critically-dismissed Vox in the Box column also appears here at
