Rickjs Handicapping Picks - Sports Betting at its finest

NFL is only weeks away! See Football special below!

The NFL is only weeks away and its time to start thinking about handicapping football.

In the past, I have had a special for the NFL season and this season will not be any different.

The Special in short is:

$171 which covers the regular season of the NFL (9/1 -12/31)

This includes all sports I handicap during this period. NCAA FB, NCAA BB, MLB 

You get a complete breakdown of every NFL and NCAA FB game played for the season into  Model Edge, Variable Edge, Public % Edge along with my comments in the NFL on each game.

The normal cost during this period would be $196.00. As an incentive, your subscription starts as soon as you subscribe. So if you subscribe on 8/11 you get all sports for august also for the subscription price.

Record for the NFL:

2018/2019   21-14   +4.8 UNITS

2017/2018   29-16   +6.75 UNITS

Record for NCAA FB:

2018/2019 28-11   +14.45 UNITS

2017/2018             +5.65 UNITS

If you are a stock trader, as a valuable feature of this service, I send out all my trades via Viber to subscribers that wish them. There is no additional cost.

We are finishing up our last month of MLB overnight plays and find ourself +6.0 Units. Its been an uneventful season, with the swings being minimal. This is unusual for the number of plays but I will take it:)

Also, I will be in the Westgate NFL Supercontest again this year. I already have 2/3 of the entry accounted for. I typically take 1/3 for myself and sell the other 2/3 at face value.  I will be posting the picks on Saturday for subscribers, and on Sunday for non-subscribers. 

Also, I have been putting out leans in the NFL Preseason. We are sitting at 3-2 after the first week.

Hope to see you join us for an exciting football season!

4-0 in MLB Friday for +4.21 Units! Some thoughts.

On Friday we had 6 plays. Our 4 MLB Overnight plays went 4-0 for +4.21 Units. We won with St Louis +115 9-5 and LAA +106 6-2, Miami U 7.5-114 1-6 and Toronto U 9-113 6-0.

We had two plays in college hoops and split. Winning with Auburn +5.5 97-80 and losing with LSU +6 63-80.

Today so far we have 2 plays pending , both in MLB overnight sides.

As most of you that have been following me this is the 3rd year that I am offering the 50% refund if we do not a winning regular season in MLB. So far I have not have to made a refund:)

I have extended the time to qualify for this to 1 week from opening day. After that the special is no longer available. It also requires you to be with us through the end of regular season.

The subscription price covers all sports I handicap during your subscription, and unlike most, it is a small monthly subscription where you can cancel at the end of the 30 days. Unlike many services that charge 4 figures in a lump sum for 1 sport.

I have been doing this know for over 15 years and have many long time subscribers. Almost all of my new subscribers is by word of mouth as I do little to no advertising. This is purely a hobby for me. Its something I enjoy, otherwise I would not be doing it.

My goal is not only to produce positive EV plays but also educate people interested in the minefields of sports betting.

Its no easy task to beat the bookmakers. I would say of the universe of sports bettors maybe 1% successfully win consistently. And even then, variance is something you always have to be mindful of.

A reading of my “required reading section” and my “FAQ” section should introduce you to these concepts. In addition, my 2+2 article on handicapping the NFL is an interesting read. Link is on top of the page.

This site is very transparent. You can see the historical results from years ago on this site, and the last 3 years at google sheets, which I keep current daily. Email me for the link if you are interested.

All plays are sent out via email, Twitter and Viber.

All subscriptions have a 3 day free trial. Just pick the paypal menu and join us:) Hope to see you soon.

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!
