Looking for your own handicapping website?
We can build it for you!
Do You Have What It Takes to Be A Handicapper for SportsCapping.com?
We are frequently contacted by handicappers who want to be listed with the other top professionals on SportsCapping.com. If you are interested in submitting an application for one of the open spots on our site, here are a few questions we will need answers to (please send to your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org):
1. Have your sports handicapping picks been documented and monitored before?
We only accept sports handicappers that have proven to provide clients with a consistent winning percentage over the course of multiple seasons. Keep in mind that we will need to see third party documentation, whether it is your record posted in a forum or at a respected handicapping monitor.
Handicapping for your buddies, who will swear you hit 90% in the NFL last season will not land you a spot in our lineup. Similarly, showing us an amateur site, which may or may not have clients, is not acceptable.
If you have never been monitored and are still interested, motivated, and hard-working, you can contact us to find out how we can monitor your plays for a specific period of time to see if you have what it takes to sell on our site.
2. Do you have samples of the analysis you provide with your picks?
We are only interested in professional handicappers, and professionals provide analysis with their work. Period. The customer needs to know why you selected the team you did so they can feel confident that you are not simply “throwing darts” to make your picks. They need to know that you are working hard and deserve to be paid for your selections. If you are serious about winning and building a client list there really is no excuse for not posting a play with detailed analysis.
3. Do you have samples of promos used to sell your picks?
If you have only sold time-based subscriptions in the past then you might not have worked with packages and promotions. Our site works with time-based subscriptions, but we also use packages and package promos to sell individual games. You need to show us that you know how to market yourself and the quality picks that you provide.
4. Are you a person or are you a service?
We want handicappers with real names. An example of a service name that would be rejected: Super Cash Lock Masters, INC. An example of a handicapper that would be approved: Steve Janus. We don’t want service names. If you want to hide behind a service title, we simply aren’t interested.
5. Do you sell your picks anywhere else?
We would like a list of the sites that you are currently selling pick on. We will look at the prices of your subscriptions and packages, along with the format you use to sell when making our determination on whether or not you would fit at SportsCapping. There are a few disreputable sites out there that we do not want to be associated with in any way, shape, or form, and if you are on those sites then you would be ineligible to post on our site.
If you do not currently sell your picks anywhere else, and are able to prove to us you know what you are doing by allowing us to monitor you for a period of time, prior to being brought on board, then we can help quality handicappers get their sites off the ground. We also redesign sites in order to help established handicappers look more professional to their visitors. Contact us for information about these services.
