Paying For Sports Picks
Is It Ok?
Is it ok to buy picks? Well, the short answer is yes. The long answer follows...........
For starters, there is absolutely nothing wrong with paying for picks. Billy Walters is one of the most famous and most successful sports bettors of our time. But guess what? Billy isn't sitting there with a pencil and a pile of stats. It's well known that he has employed a stable of handicappers over the years!
But finding a solid, winning handicapper may be a little more difficult for the average Joe. Finding a solid, winning and HONEST handicapper is close to IMPOSSIBLE for the sportsbettor that is still learning the ropes. But hopefully we can help make it a little easier.
Don't believe the HYPE! If you cruise around the net, you'll no doubt find handicapper sites that claim 65% or 75% winners or better. If you see that claim, RUN away. They are simply lying and trying to separate you from your money.
It's IMPOSSIBLE to hit better than 65% over the long haul. We'll even take it a step further. It's IMPOSSIBLE to hit 60% or better over the long haul! Now, that statement will certainly rattle some cages. The 60% number is often thrown around as an attainable and realistic winning percentage. Trust me, it's NOT realistic. Is there a handicapper somewhere out there in the world that has hit 60% over the long haul? (5+ years minimum). There might be a couple. But I haven't met them.
Even 5 years may be too short of a time frame. If you're a sportsbettor, presumably, it's a life long endeavor. I'm here to tell you that over the course of a LIFETIME of betting, NO ONE can hit 60% or better.
So, what's attainable? Anywhere between 54% and 58% is realistic and MOST who can win long term fall closer to 54% than they do to 58%. But that's ok. In fact, that's GREAT. If you could hit 55% over the next 20 years, you could become very wealthy. 55% combined with the proper money management can make you a boatload of cash.
So there you have it. If there's one thing you should take away from this article it's DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE! In your quest for a handicapper, look for honesty. If the handicapper you consider says he hit 62% last year but only 50% the prior year, and 54% the year before that, you might have yourself an honest guy. If on the other hand, he's telling you he's a lifelong 65% winner or better, don't waste your time.
Here at bettorsworld we have a couple of products to offer you. One is our Consensus Service, which is the plays of many top handicapping services all on one report (why pay thousands for one handicapper when you can get them all for one low price).
The 2nd product is our Key Releases. The Key Releases are the work of a professional handicapper (me) who has hit 56% over the long haul right here on Bettorsworld. For many years, those plays were free. These days, we charge a small fee. However, it's MUCH less than those clowns promising you the world and if you stick it out over the long haul and manage your money properly, you WILL come out ahead.
Lastly, our score predictions. You can red more about them here.
