We have done a lot of work finding handicappers that know what they are doing. One of the places that we recommend is Boyds Bets. The site is ran by Jimmy Boyd, an expert who has been in the business for a very long time. He has recruited all of the big names in the industry and documents their picks for all to see.
But, he has also done a job of grooming some newcomers. He has a tough recruiting process where cappers have to give out details on how they select their games. He tests their knowledge to see if they actually have an edge over their sports books.
What we like, he requires them to post free picks with analysis. This enables everyone to see examples of why guys like the games that they do.
He breaks the pages down by sport too. If you area only interested in NBA, NCAA basketball, NFL, college football, NHL, and MLB he has you covered. There are even a few guys who provide WNBA, tennis, boxing, MMA, and soccer predictions.
I known it’s tough to find someone to help you beat the books. I had some long discussions with Jimmy about his handicapping philosophy and who he allows on his site before I decided he was worth our recommendation.
If you are looking to learn more about how to find your own winners, these guys can help. I would challenge you to find a group of articles that provide more in-depth help for readers. They cover anything and everything. The angles that you should look at, how to find matchup advantages, even different bet options that might provide you more value.
I was surprised by some of the things that I learned. Parlays aren’t as bad as I thought. Teasers can be a valuable option and aren’t just a sucker bet. Most of the time when the public is on something it leads to disaster. There are countless other articles for you to get educated on betting and handicapping in general. I told him he should write a book with all of that free content he has on his site!
But that doesn’t mean you should forget about us! I’m going to do my best to continue to handicap and provide you with winners. I have just never felt comfortable charging for my selections. I would rather we join together and try to beat the books.
