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 58%!
Sporfolio has increased our offering to include DFS Hockey at no additional charge to all existing packages for the upcoming 2016-2017 regular season. All of our subscribers – new or existing – will now have access to our DFS plays from Monday-Friday during the season.
We are thrilled to announce that Tom Fitzgerald of XN Sports will be our lead NHL DFS writer. Tom has spent the past four 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.

We kicked off the 2016 NFL season with a confidence pick beating the spread. We don’t normally separate picks from their main articles, but Opening Night between the Carolina Panther and Denver Broncos was special. See what our members knew days ago.
Our Week 3 DFS game-by-game analysis column was a hit on many levels. It is now open to all to read as an example of what we provide to our members on a weekly basis during the NFL season.
Sporfolio’s full season predictions for the National Football Conference in 2016 include a breakdown of every NFC team, a projected record, and names the expected conference champion.
Sporfolio’s full season predictions for the American Football Conference in 2016 include a breakdown of every AFC team, a projected record, and names the expected Super Bowl champion.
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
