Is Paying for Picks Worth it?Personally, I am a bit partisan on the whole issue about buying picks. Admittedly, I know of a few individuals who’ve had quite some success with the paid picks. Even so, I always tend to discourage bettors from buying sports betting picks, not because they don’t work (because they sometimes do), but because very few handicappers that sell picks are truly winners. Plus, if you’ve been in the sportsbetting industry long enough, you will agree with me that there are far more cost-effective methods to rack up huge profits than you do when purchasing picks. My personal opinions aside, here is a brief look at some of the reasons for and against paying for picks, basing our discussion on general studies and opinions from the betting public.
Reasons Why Buying Picks May Be a Good ThingBefore we get started on reasons why purchasing picks could be a worthwhile endeavor, it is important to note that we have thousands of “touts” who claim to be winners and they cover pretty much every sport imaginable to you. The truth, however, is that not all these touts are as good as they advertise themselves to be. So, to avoid getting conned into buying bogus picks, make sure that these sport cappers that you intend to buy picks from have a documented and provable winning record of at least 56 percent over a period not less than six months. If and only then can you consider the reasons for buying picks given below.
- If you have been losing more than you are winning, then maybe trying to buy picks from professional could be good for you, possibly to help change your betting fortunes for the better.
- If you are new to sports betting and don’t understand how to crunch down numbers or sift through betting trends and relevant handicapping details such as injuries and coaches, venturing into the world of paid picks may be worthwhile, at least until you get your footing right.
- Paying for picks can also be invaluable when you don’t have time to research or read through several previews about games you are interested in. This can be especially important because some paid picks sites have access to information that’s not widely available, thus offering you the convenience of learning all that information without doing the ‘dirty’ work of researching.
