FAQ's

What is a handicapper?

Handicappers make predictions(picks, plays, selections) on the outcome of events in relation to these events` gambling odds in an attempt to predict the outcome.

How does one become a handicapper on your site?

Fill out application and pay via PayPal after approved.

Why do you have so many handicappers on your site?

The short answer is there are many reasons. Here are just the few of the major ones:
1. It has become increasingly difficult to get started in this industry. Our site allows a good capper the ability to run his business without any capital or overhead. This is a great opportunity for a talented handicapper who either does not have the time or wish to do anything but handicap.
2. By offering so many great options we believe we can give our clients the best chance at being successful. Not every handicapper is good at all sports. Some are great at college football but struggle with NFL and visa-versa. Our site gives the client the option to only get what they want. They can pick and choose from the best sports services in each sport without leaving our site. A one stop shopping operation for your sporting information!

How are the `units` for each handicapper derived?

Each selection a handicapper releases is given a rating from 1 to 10 units. The 10 unit rating is the highest and therefore considered a `Top Play`. So when you see a `Top Play` record you know that each of those games were rated as 10 units. All Games of the Week, Month and Years are also given this 10 unit designation.

Where are the `OLD` archives that I used to be able to see on the old site?

Are `Old Archives (going back to 1985) are now located here on our site.
Simply click a sport in the `Records Search and Archives` section on the home page.
Then you will see a drop down that says `Records by Full Season`. Choose the line in the last option named `Records prior to March 30, 2016`. Here you will find the current and old archives for each sport.
Select an Archive Period and/or a different sport.

Is there a minimum number of plays required to compete in the various sports?

Yes there are minimums in each sport. Your clients will expect plays each week. The records are presented in contest format. Your record will be removed from the final record if you do not have the minimum plays required at the end of the season.

NFL FOOTBALL: Pre-Season: 2 plays each week.
Regular Season: 2 plays each week with the exception
of the last week (0 plays)for the last week.
Playoffs: 4 plays total
COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Regular Season: 3 plays each week.
Bowl Games: 5 plays total.
NBA BASKETBALL: Regular Season: 3 plays each week.
Playoffs: 2 plays each week.
COLLEGE BASKETBALL:Regular Season: 3 plays each week.
March Madness: 18 plays total.
BASEBALL: Regular Season: 4 plays each week until football
season starts. No minimum when preseason NFL starts.
Championship/World Series: 5 games total.
NHL: Regular season: 2 plays each week
Playoffs: 4 plays total.

How do the minimums effect me, as a handicapper, if I pay the fee and sign up for all sports.

All sports will be open to you for game input. You will still have to satisfy the minimums to remain on the final reports. Handicapping is a very serious venture. You are asking your clients to trust in your judgement.
Right now it is not possible to keep records with few plays. We are working on a way to take those records out of ranks to the bottom of the report for reference for your clients.
