Sports Handicappers - Legit or Bogus?

First of all what is a sports handicapper? Perhaps the most famous example would be Robert De Niro's character in the Hollywood film "Casino". The movie was based on the real life of handicapping legend Frank "Lefty" Rosenthal. De Niro plays the role of Sam "Ace" Rothstein, who uses his expertise in sports gambling to rise in the ranks of the American Mafia.

The old school handicappers sold their picks through the 1-800 phone-in services, but nowadays almost all successful handicappers ply their trade online. To know if a handicappers picks are worth investing in it is obviously important to keep accurate records of his wins (and losses). There is a site that takes it one step further though, as you can leave reviews of handicappers at Pickadvisor.com. Records can be tampered with, but its hard to argue with real life reviews.

Why would handicappers sell their picks and not just bet their own money you might ask? The truth is, most of them do. The handicappers handicap the game and place their bets first, and then make their picks available for the public. They're selling their picks for a variety of reasons, but the most common one might be the ego boost they receive when delivering winners and receiving the praise.

Many handicappers showcase their skills via free picks, that are available to everyone free of charge. It is possible to earn a profit only by following the free picks, but those are selections that didn't make the grade as premium plays.

Purchasing a handicappers services can be a solid investment if you do your research first. Keep in mind though, sports betting should be considered a long-term investment, and not an easy way to get rich quick. Handicappers are gambling after all, they're just doing it with an edge.
