Rickjs Handicapping Pick



NFL Top 5 contest picks, Westgate top 5, Football season to date, NCAA BB has started!!!

We had one play last week in the NFL and it won with the Bears bringing our record to 16-4-1 or 80%!!!

In the top 5 picks we went 2-2-1 bring our record to 28-14-3 or 66.66%  Bringing me up to #67 in the my bookie contest.  The field is huge, but the entry fee is small with a 125000 first place if your lucky enough to win it:)

In the all spread contest I went 6-7 bring my record there to 76-60 or 55.88%

This week the top 5 is:






I am not with them on any of the top picks. I am fading the bears but other then that, that is it.

In college football I keep sliding with a dismal 0-5 on sides and 1-2 on totals. Bringing my record to a losing

years no in college football. Still a lot to play for the season so lets see if we can turn it around.

The NFL is having one of the best seasons I can remember in a long time. Typically it has always been the strongest of

all the sports I handicap. As the logic involved seems to fit into my twisted mind:)

It is never fun to have a bad week in a sport, but that as you know comes with the experience. that is why it is essential

to have a bet sizing method in place.  No matter how you look at it, sports betting is a long run proposition with a rather

high variance. If you cannot withstand the ups and down, do not even begin it.

We have a lot of sports going on right now , and its a good time to consider signing up.

Just go to rickjshandicappingpicks.com. Head to the paypal drop down and and pick the subscription of your choice. All have a 3 day free trial

So far today I have sent out 2 NFL plays. If you sign up now, you will be able to get the two plays before game time

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!
