Sports Handicapping Your Way To Millions

The belief that no one can make millions by sports handicapping is a myth. People have done it, and people will continue to do it all over the world. I’m not saying we’ve personally made millions (although we’ve certainly made enough to live off of), but that it’s very much possible to live a luxurious life from sports betting.
What is Sports Handicapping?
Very simply put, it’s figuring out the odds for a given sporting event. Average and below average sports handicappers are abundant in the sports betting world. But, exceptional sports handicappers are hard to come by. The difference between the two is that exceptional handicappers have a knack for predicting winners, while everyone else is just guessing. These handicappers usually either work as bookies, linesmakers in vegas, or expert handicappers who sell sports picks (like us, except we sell them for a lot cheaper than most). 
Why Should You Care About Sports Handicapping?
You should care about sports handicapping for one sole reason. There’s money to be made. There’s also money to be lost. But sports handicapping for you, could mean the difference between living the life of your dreams and living the life you currently have. Sure, working 9-5 pays the bills, but why work 8 hours a day for someone else, when you can work one hour a day and make just as much money.
How Do You Become a Sports Handicapper?
You have to learn how to read the ins and outs of sports. Create a notebook and try to pick consistent winners in sporting events for over 4 years. This is what we’ve done. Even though, we’ve had a year where we lost more bets than we won, every single year we’ve made money. How is this possible you ask? Well, sports handicapping isn’t only about picking more winners than losers. It’s also about knowing how much money to place on each bet so that even when you have bad streaks, you still come out in the green.
Do Sports Handicappers look at Statistics all day long?
Some do. It depends on the handicappers method for choosing winners. A lot of expert handicappers have developed systems that they use to figure out who to bet on. Some make large excel files, while others just rely on years of experience and instincts. But one method isn’t better than another unless it produces more money. Not only do we look at statistics, but we use meditation and other eastern philosophy ‘tactics’ that enable us to sharpen our instincts and come up with winners.
Should I do Handicapping myself or Subscribe to a Paid Service?
That all depends on which company you’re going to subscribe to, and what you expect to get out of sports handicapping. We’re of the philosophy that it’s better to teach a man to fish, than to fish for him. Which is why we recommend signing up for a subscription service AND making your own picks at the same time. This way, you’ll continue making money even while you’re learning to handicap for yourself. If you don’t really want to learn how to handicap sports that’s okay too, it’s not like we’re going to just give you one fish anyway…we hope to give you a lifetime supply.

    Some professionals are very good at picking winners, have made a lot of money and are worth paying a service fee to. Of course with any good group sports handicappers there are those that arent worth a dime and they give the whole industry a bad name. One example that comes up is consistent winners, these guys consistenly try to keep selling you on to more of there services, all the while their winning percentage was well below 30%. The funny thing is the “pros” at consistent winners would keep calling to trying to sell more product to me, while they keep missing most of the picks they recommended. They are either dishonest or stupid, I’m not sure which one it is, but neither one is good for their clients.

    Thanks for the information James. You’re right, there are tons of services out there that cost a lot of money and don’t end up making a profit for their clients. We’re not familiar with the particular service you’ve mentioned, but we’ll take a look.

    We understand that it’s a tough business, and you’re bound to have good weeks and bad weeks, but if you’re not making a profit for your customers you should provide them with a refund. Sorry to hear about your experience with that company.

    Currently, we’re not hitting the win percentage we usually do and so we’re not making as much money as we expected to make. However, even with our shotty win/loss record of 16-22-1, we’ve made our clients a profit of 28% in the past three months (not the 300% we expected, but a profit nonetheless). A 30% ROI is decent in our opinion, especially in the sports betting world. We also offer a full refund to our customers if they don’t make a profit. No questions asked.

    We hope that you don’t have any more problems with other companies in the future. It’s true, they give a bad name to the industry as a whole.
