Re: Sports Insights, bettingresource

Its not worth the subscription at all. They only have line moves from some square books and they charge you for it. There are free odds sites like sbrodds that shows line movements from all major books. Sportsinsights will also push you some systems and other crap that are mostly break even or 2 or 3 units profit..often its hit or miss. I would suggest that you use the free line services that are out there and handicap the games yourself.. When it comes to football picks and basketball picks, don't follow those misleading systems.

I figured this would be the case. I get emails from them saying they're up like 70 units in profit on the year but have never heard anyone say good things about them. Thanks for the advice.

Re: Sports Insights

the free membership is worth it...they show you actual percentage of bets from actual multiple sportsbooks not just one....if you wanna pay to get their systems that's a totally different thing, I haven't made a bet on sports in the past 5 10 years or so without going to this site first and seeing who Joe Pub was on...

I've used other software to track line movement that works decently. My main question was on their recommended bets. They say they're up 70+ units and I wanted to see if anyone actually follows these plays

Re: Sports Insights

" I do not recommend Sports Insights. Their sports picks only return anywhere from 2 to 4 percent. However, that doesn't account for that there is instant slippage after their picks are released. You won't get the price they quote. You have to be around your sportsbook 24/7 so you can place the bets within 5 minutes they are released. If you are willing to do that, you will get the 2 to 4 percent return. Take into account for the line slippage, you won't make a profit and will probably lose money with them as I did. Their service is also more streaky lately so be ready to deal with long losing streaks."

Re: Sports Insights

Know many people who use it. Live odds update are nice but over price.

bet labs is decent if you are into creating your own trends.

Their"best picks" are absolute crap.

JMHO

Re: Sports Insights

Its been nearly 5 years since this thread. Due to a glitch in their site, i can see all the paid plays when i login and for the last 3 years or so if you followed all their advice, you would be down money. they report small profit but those lines are almost impossible to get for followers.

There are much better options out there which are free like bettingresource's facebook picks.

If you don't have time to handicap your own games, go to popular betting forums such as covers, therx, etc and bet against pick the most popular pick among posters. Most of these people in forums are long term losing bettors and when someone hypes the pick as lock, you can make good money betting against those picks. But it can still be time consuming going through all the garbage in those forums. Those sports betting forums are not clean like this forum.

If you are into using tipsters, try bettingresource. Their picks can help. Even if you don't use their picks, there are lots of good articles there that can improve your own discipline and money management. I recommend their money management article for long term success.

Why spend time and resources scouring forums to fade the public when you can utilize sportsinsights free betting trend numbers which is a much larger sample of the same information?

Blindly betting against public consensus will break even and you will lose in the long run because of juice. It used to work in the old days but now reverse line moevs, fading the public consensus are -ev. You have to pick your spots. In the forums if you follow certain guys you can easily know when to fade them. lots of them are chase and tilt and force games. When they are desperate they go for lucks and game of the years and the lose those more often than that.

Hmm, ok interesting. So I should base my betting on cruising forums and picking against the "most popular pick" among posters? That seems like a really solid, well thought-out strategy. I like the ultra fade if someone calls their pick a "lock" too. We'll call that subset the 'hype angle.' What might my ROI be, in your estimation? Any good articles you can recommend to me about money management so that I can have long term success? Thanks in advance.

Yes, but you cannot go blindly fade everything. It can be stressful. What you should know is that its better to completely avoid betting on those hype angles, and when you do bet, bet against those angles. In the end of the day, no matter what you do, in gambling you are your own enemy because you will do things on impulse, especially after winning or losing big bets or winning streaks or losing streaks. Learning discipline and learning to not force bets is very important if you want to succeed. There are some good articles here http://www.bettingresource.com/articles.html I highly recommend reading the money management article and using it with your picks. 2nd article in that page is also a must for all sports bettors. Further down there is an article on value betting which good.

Re: Sports Insights

LOL jesus christ man, I'm trolling you. You're so proud of yourself you didn't even notice my very obvious sarcasm! I've probably forgotten more about sports betting than you will ever know and I'm not even that good at it. You really REALLY don't know what you're talking about bro. Your posts' in here read like someone with the mind of a small child and there is no way you win at this. Basing your strategy on fading "select people" from online forums is hilariously bad. The only reason I am being mean to you is because you're talking down to everyone, explaining how to bet like you know more than anyone else, when it is very apparent that you indeed do not.

"Learning not to force bets is very important if you want to succeed" - this is the sort of advice you get from old broke men sitting at a barstool at noon on a monday. "awww mate I coulda had it all, just didn't manage my roll correctly!" As if the only thing getting in people's way of becoming a pro bettor is correct bet-sizing.

Just based on your posts here I would bet that you are more likely to lose more going forward than someone else would who was just picking games out of a hat. And you keep shilling for whatever that website is. You should be banned for that alone. But its ok! You can still change. At least stop posting so much for a while and just read. You can be a better bettor and a better person Mr Gate.

Re: Sports Insights

I didn't say blindly fade the public or popular choice in the forum. You only see what you want to see from my posts, so no point in talking with you anymore. I do very well in sports betting and I am here to learn poker and see if i can succeed in poker using the same money management.

And the advice to succeed in gambling is basically the same. As obvious as it may seem, some of the fundamentals are the hardest to master because of emotions and impulses. In poker and in sports betting, your first enemy is yourself. Once you know yourself and have control of yourself, you can try your skill and try to succeed by beating the outside factors.

I will be in the Beginner Questions section of the forum experimenting with my poker strategy. Have a nice day mr. know it all.

So you get defensive when someone accuses you of stating that you "blindly fade the public" when you did precisely the same to me a few posts above. Kinda hypocritical no?

And please stop pumping up your crappy site geez louise.
