We get it…

You have responsibilities. A relationship. A job. You want to be more involved in the world of sports, but the time isn’t always there. So you play fantasy sports. Maybe build a daily lineup. Even pick some games or join an office pool. But without putting in the time to research, you are left guessing.

Our responsibility is to you. Our relationship is with the sport. Our job is to do the legwork so you don’t have to.

Sporfolio is your ‘sports portfolio.’ We predict. They play. You profit.

Football is Back!

After months of providing NHL DFS picks and MLB spreadsheets, we go back to our origins with our best-in-class football analysis. From a 53.67% success rate in our confidence picks against-the-spread over the last three seasons combined to back-to-back “championships” for most correct against-the-spread picks among experts tracked by NFLPickwatch, we have a unique outlook on the sport of football that is unparalleled throughout the industry.


Fantasy Baseball and MLB Picks

The founder of Sporfolio and author of Diamond Dividends: Creative Strategies to Profit Through Fantasy Baseball has uploaded his top 500 fantasy baseball player projections, a table – editable by you – of per-plate-appearance and per-inning-pitched calculations, and his overall rankings for the 2017 MLB season. His 2016 rankings were included in FantasyPros’ expert accuracy challenge, where some of his best predictions were highlighted. The rankings and projections go hand-in-hand with his aforementioned book, and are available for free by using the links above.

In addition, now that the season is underway, we are now offering daily fantasy baseball plays for free – no membership needed – and MLB over/under picks to our subscribers.

Finally, our pitcher projection spreadsheet has been consistently producing winning MLB picks via over/under plays. Since our final tweak on June 30th, the picks – with odds generally between +105 and -125 – have produced at a winning percentage of at least 54%, and are currently in the range of 56%!

DFS Hockey

All of Sporfolio’s packages include access to DFS hockey on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays

Tom Fitzgerald of XN Sports returns for his second consecutive season with us our lead NHL DFS writer. Tom has spent the past five years as the lead editor for XN Sports and is excited to contribute his hockey DFS strategies and plays to our readers, while helping Sporfolio expand our content beyond football.

NFL Picks: 2017 Week 7 Picks Against the Spread

If there is one singular trend that I follow on a weekly basis, it is the collective overreaction to games that went in our favor, but against the general expectations from a previous week. It makes sense. There was a certain level of faith placed in a group of picks, and they disappointed a large number of people. In essence, these looked like ‘surprises.’ They weren’t. The football-watching world is fickle. It changes its mind on a whim. But, when making such shifts, it...

(top stacks in bold) Detroit Red Wings @ Toronto Maple Leafs (Toronto, -175, 6 over/under) Chicago Blackhaws @ St. Louis Blues (St. Louis, -120, 5.5 over/under) Montreal Canadiens @ Los Angeles Kings (L.A., -160, 5 over/under) The two teams I have...

DFS Plays: NFL 2017 DFS Week 6 Picks

One of the best realizations entering Week 6 was that the two quarterbacks we are targeting are so inexpensive that the rest of the roster can include extreme flexibility. Normally, we have decided between a balanced approach or a ‘stars-and-scrubs’ roster, but it is not necessary, this week. Based on our expected Week 6 DFS game flow analysis performed earlier, we can carry our thoughts into actual lineup positions. The long list of players that fit the requirements set forth by...

Daily Fantasy Hockey Morning Coffee: 10/13/17

Welcome to the Friday edition of the daily fantasy hockey morning coffee. Today we have a five-game slate to dig through for our daily fantasy hockey needs. Before I begin my DFS writing today I ask for a moment of indulgence, one that Mario Mergola, Owner of Sporfolio, so gracefully allowed me last season. October 13’s bring back strange memories, and especially Friday October 13ths. This is why … On Friday October 13, 1995 I found myself face down, hiding, in a “friend’s” car,...

DFS Plays: NFL 2017 Week 6 Game-by-Game DFS Analysis

As mentioned in our weekly picks column, there is a handful of games with extremely large spreads. Whenever this happens, we can usually pinpoint an expected gameflow, as the underdog will likely be trailing for most of the game and need to throw in order to compete, while the favorite will be running out the clock late. That is, of course, if we buy into the games going exactly according to plan. The good news is that, wherever an ‘upset’ is possible, we can expect the underdog to...

DFS Game Flow

The overall picture of picking games against the spread in a given week would be incomplete without the individual pieces – the players. The rise of daily fantasy sports has provided an avenue for taking predictions about a given set of games even further, where both the teams and players can be assembled into a portfolio.

Despite efforts to separate the two, they actually go hand-in- hand, where the players impact the flow of the game that will ultimately complete the picture. Our team specializes in offering these DFS picks driven completely by ‘game flow,’ where scenarios of success are crafted on the foundation of our industry-leading picks ATS.

Week 4 2015 NFL Picks Against the Spread Column

“Drew Brees…gives the Saints the obvious edge…”

“It is likely already too late for the Saints…but a home game in primetime against an injured Cowboys’ team might be the Saints’ last hope. Keep in mind that the Saints were 2-4 and hosting the seemingly unstoppable Packers in a Sunday Night Football contest, last season. New Orleans won by three touchdowns.

Week 4 2015 Results

New Orleans Saints 26, Dallas Cowboys 20

Drew Brees: 33-for-41, 359 passing yards, 2 passing touchdowns, 25.4 DraftKings points, 22.4 FanDuel points

Week 8 2015 NFL Picks Against the Spread Column

Denver’s defense — allowing the fewest yards and second-fewest points per game in the league — will provide the toughest test that Aaron Rodgers and the Packers have seen to date, and the perceived large gap between the two teams will be closed. Denver, like Green Bay, is perfect in regular season home games since the beginning of 2014.

The Broncos hand the Packers their first loss of the season…

Week 8 2015 Results

Denver Broncos 29, Green Bay Packers 10

Aaron Rodgers: 14-for-22, 77 passing yards, 0 passing touchdowns

Denver Defense: 10 points allowed, 3 sacks, 1 safety
