Our 2nd halves haven't even done as well as our full game releases, and 2nd halves and totals are meaningless to who? They clearly aren't meaningless to anyone who opts in for those types of plays on the service. Seriously get a clue and just stop.

We've been contemplating the idea of a private service model for years, going to experiment with one for WNBA/NFLx this month, some other announcements coming soon too.

When do you plan on having your subscription info up at your site? Do you think it'll be easier for clients to get down?

Sorry, I'm from Australia, line bets are $1.90 odds, or in the US spread betting -110. What I meant was, how would you rate a handicapper with the above results, eg. Good, great, very good etc.

If they're under 55% it's no good to you after you factor in paying for the picks. If they're over 55% they're probably lying about their winrate or the sample size is so small it's not a useful predictor

How would you rate 58.4%, +78.8 units, 11.1 ROI over 707 games all documented?

ok so using my patented state-of-the-art "how much money have they won" metric to rate handicappers, you rate one out of ten Dodge Ram 2500s. not best rating ever, but lots of room for improvement. best of luck going forward.

You can't rate a handicapper by how much money they've won. What if 2 handicappers both have a record of 55% and are plus 10 units over all, one is betting $10/game the other is betting $100/game. First one would be $100, second one would be up $1000. So you can't rate a handicapper based on "how much money they've won". The only way you can base it on is through winning %, total units won, ROI etc.

Re: Who are the legit top sports bettors?

You can't rate a handicapper at all unless they actually bet for stakes. Otherwise it's just some loser jerking themselves off "paper trading" against stale pickmonitor lines and 2H TTs that barely exist anywhere for real money. I only gave you one pickup truck out of ten because at least since you're not actually betting you aren't down money.
