Sports Betting Scams
by Max Powers - 1/11/2010
With the birth of the Internet many sports handicapping services have developed overnight and many of them claim to be well-established and well-respected businesses. Most are just fly-by-night operations and they are in the business to make a quick buck. Experience is one thing most of these companies lack and many of them try to compensate for that by saying them have been gambling for over two decades. There is a difference between betting on sports and handicapping sports for a living. Most people turn to handicapping Web sites after they were not able to make a living betting on sports themselves. The following list features a checklist of things to look out for when determining if your handicapper is legit or if he is running a sports betting scam.
- Give out both sides of the game to different customers to ensure somebody wins the game
- Giving out different game of the year plays to different customers
- Losing a big play and then coming back the next week with an even bigger play
- Companies that have you call in for a free pick and then do not give it to you and instead ask for your phone number
- Companies that used the word ‘Lock’ for their selections
- Companies that charge you a percentage of your winnings
- Companies that sell the same plays under numerous names
- Companies that try and sell you three different types of packages based on the more you pay the better picks that you get
