Default Invest in SportsBetting

www.sharpsportsbettting.com is the equivilant of 2+2 when it comes to sports betting. they offer NFL box seats which is access to a forum hosted by 3 cappers who give all their picks. everyone contributes the same as 2+2, only its paid, more professional. they have proven records and know their stuff. its very, very professional. the risk-reward seems very good, unless i am missing something.

I read through your discussion on the General Forum there... Very interesting. The people there do seem professional and knowledgeable, but like it was eluded towards, it seems difficult to quantify performance. I know a losing streak in poker can really break my confidence, and that's even when I can do the math afterwards to prove to myself that I was a favorite to win the hand. So I can imagine it must even more difficult with sports betting in which hindsight does nothing but further erode confidence. Especially when pushing edges as slim as a few percentage points, there's going to be a lot of variance. It's an interesting idea nonetheless that I think has potential. Please keep us updated if you feel like it was a good investment of your time and money.

yes this is very interesting, but i have trouble trusting an internet message board discussing things which i am very unaware of. how are you going to pick which advisors to go by and which to go against? i assume that there are threads in which the majority of bettors agree on a pick, so should you just trust their advice and go with the trend? even if you decide to trust these bettors entirely, what type of edge do you think you can expect to gain? is it even worth the effort without a godzilla roll?

I was thinking about the same lines as you a few months ago. Something made me look into another possible "investment".

This is still very interesting though. Please let me know how it turns out.
