Money won is twice as sweet as money earned


Turn Gambling into Investing Today!

Knowing the game will not make you money but knowing how, when, and why the lines move will make you money. I am an expert analyst in the sports handicapping market. Just like the stock market, there are a few people on the inside making things happen and then there’s everybody else. The average bettor is at a disadvantage to the “big bettors”. These few have the inside information. They study and analyze every angle of each game. These are the guys that make the lines move. I know the “big bettors”. I know the information they know. I know how to recognize inconsistencies in the lines and I put all this knowledge together to consistently make you and me MONEY.

What type of Subscription types are offered?

I offer daily, weekly, or season subscriptions for NFL, NCAA Football, NHL, and Major League Baseball. I believe when investing in sports you should focus on the longer term, that’s why I offer a significant discount for purchasing a subscription on a seasonal basis.

Do you rate your picks?

I do not rate my picks. Every pick I make has equal value and every member receives the same quality picks. In order to obtain maximum profits from my picks you need to bet the same amount on every game I select. If you only use the picks of mine that you like or if you bet different games your percentage will be different than my documented one.

Do you document your picks?

I post my picks after the last game starts and I update my record every night. To view my rating and previous picks just go at anytime to Previous Picks.

Do you offer a guarantee?

There is no such thing as a “LOCK” in sports betting and anyone advertises or promises one is being dishonest. No major league sports game outcome can ever be for sure. I am confidant in my picks and I offer a free subscription of equal value to any season subscriber whose subscription offered a loss.

Betting Terms

The Juice

This is how the casinos or bookies make their money. In order to place a straight bet or an over/under bet you must put up or agree to pay the “juice” which is 10% of your wager. If you lose the casino or bookie gets the bet plus the juice. For instance, to win $100 you need to bet $110.

Straight Bets

With a straight bet (most common in football), the team you are betting on must win by the point spread at the time of the bet. Lines are always changing so be aware of what the line is when you place your bet. If a game ties the point spread then it is considered a “push” and no money is exchanged.

Texas -14 v/s Oklahoma +14 (If you were betting this you would say Texas minus the points or Oklahoma plus the points) This means if you are betting on Texas then they have to win by more than 14 points. If you are betting on Oklahoma you are getting 14 points and, as long as they lose the game by less than 14 points, you win.

Over/Under Bets

This is a bet based on the combined score of both teams for a specific game. If the total for the game is 55 and you bet the over then you are betting that the combined total will be 56 or more, or if you are taking the under then you are betting the score will be 54 or less. If the combined score equals 55 then it is a push.


This is when the team wagered on just has to win the game. The amount you lay or take for each game may vary. The money line determines the amount of money won or lost when wagering on either the favorite or the underdog. The team with the highest negative money line number determines the favorite team, and then the positive money line number determines the underdog. There is no “juice” on money line bets.

Example: Nebraska -160 v/s Oklahoma +260 If you want to bet on Nebraska to win the game then you must bet $160.00 to win $100.00. If you bet on Oklahoma to win the game then the you would bet $100.00 to win $260.00


This is a bet of 2 or more teams (selections) or propositions in no particular order. All teams wagered on in a parlay must win. If there is a tie, or "no action" among the selections made, the parlay reverts down to the next lowest number for payoff. In the case of a 2-team parlay, it will revert down to a straight wager. No parlay bets will be accepted where individual "selections" are connected. For example, you cannot parlay the over of the first half of a football game with the over of the total game, because the two are 'connected'.

Example: You bet a 5 team parlay Dallas -7 New England +3 St. Louis -4 Atlanta -10 Cincinnati -8

If all these games win then you would have won at 20-1 odds, which are the odds for a 5 game parlay. If only 1 team loses then the entire parlay loses. Three team or more parlays are very hard to win, but they do make betting more exciting every once in a while because the payouts are BIG!

This chart is based on a $250 parlay bet 2 Teams $650 3 Teams $1,500 4 Teams $2,500 5 Teams $5,000 6 Teams $10,000


I was introduced to gambling by my grandfather at an early age. From the time I could walk my weekends were filled with trips to cock fights, horse races, back-room poker games and my favorite, Saturdays at the bar making college football picks.  My granddad instilled in me the importance of never betting a game that you don’t know something more than the average bettor. I’ve been consistently beating the bookies and Vegas for over 14 years making money for my customers and me - that’s why they keep coming back. While other handicappers focus their energy on high pressure tactics to sell their picks I’m busy analyzing every line on every game looking for moneymakers. Handicapper's who charge a lot have to because they are not confident in their picks and can’t rely on repeat business. My picks sell themselves. My fees are reasonable because my customers WIN MONEY and keep coming back for more.
