In the world of sports betting, everybody is looking for an edge. While most experienced sharp bettors realize that building a bankroll involves careful money management, detailed analytical research and a great deal of patience, many new bettors are looking for easy ways to win big.
Often times, these individuals will contact us asking why we don’t win at the 80+% rate that many handicappers promise. The reason? Nobody in sports betting wins over 80% of the time. In fact, even the legendary Billy Walters claims a winning percentage of “just” 57%.
Knowing what is necessary to be a profitable sports investor over a prolonged period of time, it can be very irritating to see handicappers promise impossible results to novice sports bettors who are swept away by grand promises of easy money. In the past we have exposed scamdi-cappers such as John Morrison, a.k.a. “The Sports Betting Champ”, who claimed a historic winning percentage of 97% and a weekly income of over $50,000. Yet despite this success, Morrison spent his time trying to sell his winning system for just a fraction of his weekly earnings.
These bold claims remind me of an old cliché: “If something seems too good to be true, it probably is”. If you have a system that can’t miss, you don’t share it with the world. You utilize it until sportsbooks refuse to take your bets or until you can afford to spend your days swimming in a pool full of gold ala Scrooge McDuck. Daftar Situs Judi Online Resmi
Recently, a similar handicapper by the name of Chad Smith (or as he’s more commonly known the Sports Betting Star) has come to our attention with seemingly unattainable claims of a 95% winning rate. You would think that somebody with such an unbelievable system would simply bet these games on their own and then begin the arduous decision of which private island to buy. Amazingly, you can receive a lifetime of these nearly unbeatable picks for just $175.
The system seems simple enough. In exchange for a one-time payment of $175, you will receive a daily e-mail with Mr. Smith’s best picks. All you have to do is log into your sportsbook or visit your local bookie and place your bet. In fact, his website claims that you don’t have to know anything about sports nor do you have to be a “computer genius”.
Much like the Sports Betting Champ, the SportsBettingStar makes his money by heavily marketing his product to the public, selling his system by inflating his winning percentages and covering up negative reviews (or creating fake positive reviews for that matter).
For those who stumble across his website without a background in sports betting, the promises of easy riches can be extremely enticing.
Of course, the curiosity over such a staggering figure as 95% is hard to overcome. Still not convinced? Okay, but here is what The Sports Betting Star is not telling you:
The SportsBettingStar system utilizes a three-tiered betting structure, in which individual bets are not counted towards wins or loses. Instead, they use a three-bet chase system which basically means that a certain team must win at least one of three games. Chad Smith directs his customers to bid on that team, one game at a time, doubling their bet size until the team finally wins. Only if the team loses all three bets is it considered a “loss.”
