We have a lot of handicappers who sell picks on our site. Sometimes it can be tough to filter through everyone and make a decision on who has the best chance to make you money. I'm an action junky, so I like to follow a few handicappers in each sport. Below I'm going to give you my top advice on who to follow in each sport. I break each sport up into specific time periods. Some handicappers prepare for the beginning of the season better than others and kill it out of the gate. Others need to see the team's perform before they get enough information on who to back. Other handicappers, well they specialize in types of bets. Some may be good at everything, others are better at totals than point spreads or vice versa. Consider this page your cheat sheet to higher profits this year. *Unless noted I recommend flat betting each handicapper's picks. Essentially all of my data ignores unit values. We do track top play v. non top play and I'll mention to only follow top plays if the data...

SportsCapping.com was created to help bettors make money by betting on sports. Nearly all of the handicappers on our site guarantee their packages and subscriptions so that you either profit or else you will be compensated with a subscription of equal time free of charge. We do not offer a money back policy like some services do, but if our handicappers put together a losing performance then they do want to try and make things right.Most of our customers understand that you won’t win every single day, and that hitting over 70% for an entire season is not a realistic goal. All you have to shoot for is a season of hitting 55-60% on all of your bets and you can win quite a bit of money during that time.We often get emails and calls about a handicapper who lost a single pick or on a single day and the client calls the handicapper terrible or just guessing. The aspect of betting that these individuals do not understand is that our services focus on the long haul and not on day-to-day...

The NBA has been featuring games on Christmas Day pretty much since its start.  The teams for these games are not fixed like the NFL on Thanksgiving.  Instead, the league chooses some of the best matchups of players and teams to showcase.   But here's the real question. How can we use this information to our advantage when betting these games? My theory was that NBA games on Christmas Day will go UNDER the total more often than not due to a few simple variables. NBA Unders on Christmas Day The Logic The NBA goes out of its way to feature some of the better teams in the league.  For example, the teams that met in the Finals last year almost always meet on Christmas Day.   This means that both teams are going to be motivated to prove themselves.  That motivation translates into defensive intensity.  More intensity translates into tougher shots for the opposite.  That would lead to lower scoring. A different idea is the complete opposite of our motivation theory....

Here's a look at 3 tips for becoming a more successful bettor, which means more money in your pockets! Money Management This is without question the most important aspect of betting sports and probably the most over looked. The biggest key to proper money management is to be sure not to bet more than you can afford to lose. You must put aside a certain portion of your money for your sports betting bankroll. Winning money on sports is a marathon not a sprint. I recommend betting 3% of your bankroll on a regular play and never more than 5% on any play. I f you spread your bankroll among several smaller bets, you are more likely to make a profit in the long run if you do the proper homework. There are no locks in this business and any team can lose on any given night. NEVER CHASE after a losing day! There is no worse way to mismanage your bankroll than to chase your bets after a losing day. Chasing bets is a losing proposition almost every time. Wins and losses come in streaks, so you...

It seems like even people who do not bet very often understand what a point spread means and how to bet on one.  Most shops will just force you to lay $11 for every $10 you want to win.     But, a lot of bettors start to get confused and want to know how to understand American money line odds.     Today, I’m going to make it easy for you understand this concept and hopefully add another type of wager to your arsenal that will help you build your bankroll.   To illustrate let’s look at an example.  Most places will list three types of odds for a basketball game:   NBA Basketball Spread Money Line Total Points 701 Miami Heat -3.5 -110 -165 o198 -110 702 Orlando Magic +3.5 -110 +145 u198 -110   Each row gives you three possible bets you can make on the game: spread, money line and total points (the over/under).    The spread and total point columns don’t just list the total and the spread, they also list -110 after. This...

If you only use one set of odds then you are doing yourself a disservice.  Basically you are just throwing money away.  I’ll give you a couple of examples and if that doesn’t convince you then I guess nothing will. Spread Sports If you are betting point spreads then not having extra options is costing you half points or worse, full points.  Let’s say you like an underdog and your only option is +2.5, but half of the books have +3.  You bet $110 to win $100 at +2.5 and I bet $110 to win $100 at +3.  The game ends and our team lost by 3.  I push so I get my $100 back, you lose and are down $110.  How often does this happen?  Depends on the sport, but in the NBA 932 games  out of 23,193 have ended within a half point of the average point spread the past 19 years.  That equates to about 1 in 20 of your bets.  If you made 1.5 bets per day that’s two games per month you lost you should have pushed.  Even if you just bet $100 per game, that’s $220 that should be in...

Our exclusive SC Score was developed to better help our clients find the best possible handicapper to follow.  The SC Score algorithm calculates how likely a handicapper is to beat the odds versus results that could be expected from a random sample of games.   Essentially, the more picks a handicapper logs at a high winning percentage, the higher their SC Score will be.  An SC Score of more than 4.0 indicates a 99% probability that the handicapper is better at picking winners than simple random...
