Re: I know this has been asked before

Seems rough to find one that consistently wins ,and getting the right number they have is a nightmare .. and seems there isn't many that can win in all sports .. by the time you pay fees hard to overcome guess there is someone I am missing .. hope someone can help

Why? Have you reported something that you think needs to be looked at by a mod?

Tout Services- Are they all scammers?

I would never consider paying for picks but my question is- Is there such a thing as a legit tout service that consistently sells winning picks etc ?

Or are they all just scammers?

Re: Tout Services- Are they all scammers?

IF by scammers you mean lying about records then there are honest services.

But even the "good" guys hustle with questionable marketing tactics like picking the juciest of lines for record purposes even when the majority of their clients cant get that lilne.

Also creating many catagories for their selections, ie sec game of week, acc game of month, underdog of week , etc and that way you can always promote the ones that are hot.

Re: Tout Services- Are they all scammers?

I mean scammers in the sense that the vast majority are selling a "service" that has little-to-no value

If they are that good, they should be beating the books instead of hustling and taking advantage of degens

No, not if they display and track their record and display them to you.

Re: I know this has been asked before

People that work in mcdonald's could really use some winning picks.

Try these 2:

STRAIGHT BET
[1902] TOTAL u4˝+110 (1H MIA GM#1 vrs 1H PHI GM#1)
( D STRAILY -R / A NOLA -R )

STRAIGHT BET
[1920] TOTAL u5+110 (1H NYY vrs 1H DET)
( M TANAKA -R / M BOYD -L )

Re: Tout Services- Are they all scammers?

Tout's picks cannot overcome 11-10 because God can't. Not if He has to come up with several picks a week. Because, simplistically speaking, there is no profitable bet unless the line is incorrect by at least two points. Few are. And the tout has to find them while staying away from other games. (God could do that second part.)

Re: Tout Services- Are they all scammers?

Reminds me of Random Walk Theory of how the stock-market can't be beaten because prices are always efficient.

If this were true, the lines would never move.

That in of itself means that picks can overcome 11-10.

Re: Tout Services- Are they all scammers?

Like I said in the OP-
I would never consider paying for picks. I very rarely bet sports as is.

I created the thread bc there was a guy at my poker table with his website and logo on his shirt and i wanted to see if my negative judgment of him was justified.

IMO they are all basically scammers, just wanted to confirm with you guys


TY to the ppl who gave actual serious responses

I had my fun with sports betting years ago and learned that it's basically unbeatable

Concept of laying 11-10 on a 50-50 proposition being a loser shouldn't be too hard to understand. So the question becomes how often is there a betting opportunity due to the line being off.

Even Sklansky. That's rich. His response, like most all others he posts in this forum was nonsense. Ignore anything he posts about sports betting.
