1 Handicapping Award
Hi, my friends call me “Rio” and I simply desire to be a great sports handicapper. Back in 1983, I received what I thought was the greatest present I could ever receive. My parents gave me a copy of Hoyle's Rules of Games book as a birthday gift when I was a kid. Because even as a kid I knew, “If you want to win you gotta learn how to play the game.” I have always loved games and sports, and will always appreciate the passion athletes give us everyday. So it is too little surprise that I find myself with this itch and knack to "be in the know".
I don’t want to divulge too much information about myself as I am not really interested in selling you my skills, picks, knowledge, or why you should consider me of value to you…yet. I simply encountered line.com as a way to prove and track my plays for myself and to others if they were so interested to know how good I really am at sport handicapping.
I understand being a great handicapper is not easy and there is a learning curve just like any worthwhile endeavor. So, in essence I am an amateur still learning the trait and engaging in various tools, trends, and information to discover the best values in sports betting. As an amateur sports handicapper, I don’t have the time to really develop the kind of relationship I would think you would want from a “go-to-guy”.
Don’t get me wrong I believe in my research and I have been profitable in my efforts thus far. However, I am probably like most of you…have a day job, family, and life so I am not evaluating lines everyday but maybe someday soon I will. Therefore, my picks are slim compared to others but every pick on pickmonitor.com has been thoroughly studied by yours truly.
I am a Stanford Wong disciple and follow the Kelly Criterion so I’m a little old-skool. My expertise is NFL but I also cap NBA. I was able to hit over 56 percent NFL winners on line.com in 2011 but I actually hit closer to 57 percent because my first 2 weeks were not documented. 57 percent is a generally accepted success rate among longtime pros. I was able to regain status in 2012 and remain top 10 among NFL handicappers on pickmonitor.com. I was also able to achieve a #1 Top Handicapper award in November of 2013 in the Return on Investment category.
Some guys may hit 60 percent for a season or two but it will be extremely rare. If someone says they can hit 70 percent, hide your wallet and walk away. He’s lying and that’s why I’m here. I believe in integrity so if I ever do decide to sell my picks and you begin to see my name high in the capper rankings, I hope you would appreciate the kind of service I intend to give you. Please keep me in mind in the near future. Good Luck.
