What methods do you use to handicap games?
We use several approaches to
handicapping soccer, and it is tireless work requiring hours
of research. Statistical analysis plays a big role, and so
does studying situational trends. Player motivation and
psychological factors are also very important. We also
evaluate player fitness and roster changes. Above all we
look for plays that offer value, and we only recommend bets
when the odds are in our favour.
percentage of games do you expect to win?
Please check the results
section for our past performance. As you can see, we win at
least 57% of our plays, and for many leagues our winning
percentage is well over 60%. Please note that the majority of
our plays are at odds ranging from 1.83 (-120) to 2.20 (+120). But more
important than winning percentage is actual profits, and as
you can see we won over 180 units in 2003 and 108 units in 2004, which is over $29,500
clear profit betting just $100 per play.
Q: How do you
rate your plays?
We don't use a fancy 3* or 5* rating
system like other handicappers. The vast majority of bets are advised to level stakes. But if we have a particularly
strong play, we'll advise doubling your normal stake. These are rare picks which represent excellent value
and have a higher than normal chance of winning. It's up to you
whether to bet more on those plays, but in general it's best
to keep all your wagers the same size.
Q: What types
of bets do you advise? Do you play the Over/Under?
Most of the picks we release are
either fixed odds or Asian Handicap bets. In soccer,
there are three options in a traditional moneyline (1X2): Home Win, Away Win,
and Draw. If you bet on Away Win and the match ends in a
draw, the bet loses. To eliminate the draw option we often
advise Asian Handicap bets giving a team a +0.5 goal advantage.
In this case, a bet on the away team at +0.5 goals is a
winning bet if the match ends in a draw. We also release
Over/Under bets from time to time. In soccer the Over/Under is
almost always 2.5 goals.
does your Guarantee work?
All our picks packages are guaranteed to win or you receive
a full credit refund. If you buy a picks package that does not
turn a profit, you will receive another picks package of equal
value absolutely free. If that free picks package does not
win, you will receive another picks package for free. This
ensures you only pay for winning picks. We are so confident in
our handicapping ability that if we don't win, you don't pay.
payment methods do you accept?
We currently accept payments with all
major credit cards through Paypal. We also accept payments
by Moneybookers and process UK credit and debit cards through Nochex. If you are interested in a one month or longer term
subscription, you can arrange payment by Western Union or Bank Wire. Please email us for details.
Q: Is there any
way of getting your picks for free?
Yes. We release free
picks which are highly profitable (over 57% win
rate). You can also receive one week of our Premium picks for
free by opening an account with our partner Pacific Poker.

can I receive the picks? And when are the picks released?
All picks will be sent by email no
later than 2 hours before match kickoff. Roster changes and
last minute team news are crucial factors in our handicapping
decisions, and our results would suffer if we disregarded
these factors by releasing picks earlier. Picks can also be sent by SMS text message to your mobile phone.
Q: How many
picks do you release per day/week?
Since the majority of soccer games
are played on weekends, you'll find most of our picks are
clustered around the weekend games. You can expect between 3-8
picks for each Saturday and Sunday, and another 2-5 picks
during the week between Monday and Friday.
are your strongest picks or leagues?
If you check our results,
you'll notice our UEFA Cup and Champions League picks are
particularly strong as well as many domestic European leagues
with a win rate well over 60%. The hardest league to handicap
is the English Premiership because the English oddsmakers are
more sophisticated. But we still have an excellent win rate
over 57% for our English soccer picks.
you handicap any other sports?
No. Unlike other jack-of-all-trades
handicappers, we specialize in and devote our attention
exclusively to soccer. We can, however, recommend handicappers
for sports like Football, Basketball, Hockey and Baseball.

Handicappers League for fully documented,

you recommend any good online sportsbooks that offer soccer
Yes. Check our links
section for more info on the best sportsbooks for soccer. It
is worth opening an account at each one rated "Highly
Recommended." While many sportsbooks offer bets on
soccer, very few of them have good odds. If you don't shop for
the best odds, you will win less and lose more. Feel

you are considering.
