|Looking at the LAST 10 PICKS section for Covers Expert Ben Burns, it seems he and the other "Experts" seem to report the amount they bet as their profit and not the actual profit you would have made given the betting line.

For example, check his pick on the Montreal Canadiens last night.
He rates it a 7-star pick and gives himself a profit of 700 units (7 units x $100, I guess)
In fact, if you bet 7 units on Montreal (-170 Money Line) , your profit would have been 7 x 100/170 or 5.88 units -- NOT 7, or 700 for that matter.
And don't tell me that what he meant was to bet the puckline (-1.5 goals) as that would have paid about +180 and is not mentioned anywhere in his analysis.
Please tell me how Covers Experts is not completely misleading potential customers hoping they're not smart enough to notice.
