MLB days away!!! Ask about our MLB Special now!!!

Monday we had one play and it was an easy winner in the NBA.

Toronto -7.5 won 131-112.

So far today I have sent out no plays.

I sent out an email and tweet to subscribers regarding the new Mod/Var/Pub% numbers I started posting on each game.

These are for subscribers that do their own handicapping. These will give you in short form a synopsis of what I do each day. It breaks the games down as to where the models, Variables and Pub% numbers point to for value on the game.

In looking these over remember for me to wager on a game all 3 have to align on one side of the game.

My message yesterday to subscribers was to point out that starting today they would be sent out via email and SMS only. And for those that wished to receive these to send me an email and I will add you to a separate group that gets these in addition to the plays.

After getting a few emails from long time subscribers who are looking for plays only, I realized that all of this new information not only might be information some people do not want but also it might be confusing to some to where they might miss a play jumbled up into these.

So it will now be separate to those who want it.

In addition, I am always looking for ways to improve this service so if anyone has any suggestions please let me know via email and I will be happy to consider it.

I have been asked about the final 4 a number of times now. My handicapping incorporates what the line does, what the public does and the relationship of moves to these % numbers. So it is premature for me to begin handicapping these until a day or so before game time.

My models certainly can give an idea but that would be the only factor that I could base anything on. Considering models are the weakest link in what I do, you will hear from me on these a day or so before game time.

We are only a few days away from MLB. Now would be a good time to jump on board and take advantage of our MLB special. Remember in order to qualify for the special you need to be a subscriber on opening day!

Good Luck Today

Letter From a Long Time Follower

“Rick,I am still amazed how you do it. I have followed you almost from the beginning not only from your posting on your website but also you time at 2+2 forums.

I have noticed a continuous improvement year to year in your methods. But the more remarkable thing to me is your persistence in educating and putting out your picks. Almost every site I am familiar with has gone by the wayside. Yet yours keeps getting stronger and stronger.

I have to ask “Where do you get your focus and energy” to keep this up?

You have taught me a lot over the years and I have gone from a “punter” to a reasonable handicapper. Whereas before I was a typical undisciplined sports bettor I am now very aware of the necessity of a disciplined approach. It has done wonders.

In addition, you’re going from a free site to a subscription based site was long overdue. I appreciate your keeping the membership fee low and not trying to “milk” money out of the sports bettors. I know there are many that would pay substantially more to follow your site.

But that goes hand in hand with your persona that you have established in the sports betting world. You most likely do not know it but your name “RickJ” is very well-respected as one of the leading handicappers in sports betting. In addition, your reputation for integrity is as high.

There are very few real things out there but you are definitely the real thing.

Again thank you for all you have done over the years.”

My Response:

It’s hard for me to respond to that as humble a person as I am:) But it’s emails like this that I get from time to time that help keep me motivated.

I have always said in the past that I approach sports handicapping the way crossword puzzle addicts approach their morning routine. I can not think of anything more challenging than trying to figure out EV on sports games.

As far as the subscription cost I have mentioned before my goal was to defer my expenses that keep rising every year as I get more advanced in my techniques. I look at subscribers as partners in this handicapping endeavor rather than customers. Subscribers help me defer my costs and allow me to justify keeping my expensive hobby going.

Thanks for the mail. It’s nice to know I am appreciated!
