We’re the best sports betting resource when it comes to MMA. Not only do we give away our picks that an expensive algorithm created, we also aggregate picks from other experts so you can see them all in one place instead of visiting 10 different website and listening to 7 repetitive podcasts to get your intel. All for free.
Yet you still see thousands of people online selling their “gut-feel” picks for money. You would think that if their picks were so accurate, they would focus on betting bigger amounts instead of soliciting payments for the picks.
As you probably know, the majority of these services are bullshit. There are some VERY rare exceptions backed by math experts, but they tend to cost 4 figures minimum, and the only sure way to profit is to bet on all of their exact picks, 2 seconds after they’re announced (before the Vegas lines adjust), with large sums of money in order to cover the upfront cost. You also have to do it over the course of several years because even though these 1 in 70,000,000 geniuses win over the long term, they have winning years and losing years.
The biggest argument I hear from these pick selling characters is that they’re after more stability. They might be profitable over the course of a year, but they are going to have losing months during which they need to put food on the table. And that’s where a consistently paying user base is helpful. But again if your picks are so good, who cares if you have a losing streak. You should be swimming in money and have enough put aside to cover for those rainy days.
That’s one of the reasons all our picks are free: We’re putting our money where our mouth is. We believe our picks are good enough to the point where instead of charging you for them, we’ll just profit from placing the same bets ourselves. And if you lose because we were wrong, we lose with you.
OK so not all our reasons for making our picks free are altruistic. They’re also free because we’re brand new with no userbase. So nobody’s going to pay for it anyway.
With that said, our picks MIGHT not always be free. If we’re successful in becoming a household name in the world of sports betting and millions of people are monitoring/using our picks, it’s going to shift the sportsbook lines against us. And if that happens, our bets won’t be as good – maybe even losing, making them useless for our audiences. But if we’re so good that we’re moving lines, that’ll be a good problem to have.
At that point we’ll probably have a hybrid version where we give you some picks for free, some more picks if you’re in the newsletter, and some paid picks.
But, we will always publish our past picks, so you guys can keep us accountable and post creative mean comments if and when we fuck up.
