Hello covers, I am a decently smart person but a godawful handicapper. I have watched and kept up with sports all my life, but for some reason I cannot pick the right side of any bet.

I would honestly say I lose at about a 70% clip, and I bet about 100-200 a game, which translated to about 13,000 in losses last year. The funny thing is I actually research and analyze my bets, but nonetheless they're all wrong. I have been reading covers for some time now and I figured its back to give back to the community by providing picks for you to fade.

Also look out for my losing CBB picks, they are histerically bad, you will earn a ton of $$


So, for my second posted pick, I like SAC -3.5, which means you should pick UTAH +3.5

It is extremely difficult to do, I start playing head games with myself and end up psyching myself out on which one to bet, but for sure whichever one I end up playing loses.

That's the fate of a typical gambler, you win some, but you lose even more.

Yeah right, you no way you lost that much and your still gambling, lol.

First off the way I bet, there is no way I would lose that much of my own money.  I never understood why people put in so much of their own money in a book.

People bet for different reasons. Some are degenerates, some are competitive and crave that feeling of beating the book, others just enjoy action. Me? I'm not married and I don't have kids, but I have a good job that pays me more than I know what to do with, so I bet on sports for my own enjoyment.

If you read my original post, I said I've been READING on covers for a while. The reason I'm posting is to give the community good fade material
