It should be renamed to "I Guarantee That I'm Not So Sure About These Picks"

If you can't go 1 for 1 or 3 for 3 then you don't need to be in the business of calling your picks "guaranteed" or "100%"

The only guarantee is that you will always have suckers buying into guarantees, locks, sure things, plays of the year, etc.  Blowhard salesmen exist because someone is always looking for something for nothing.

I don't wanna name names but I decided to match up their picks with the picks I see on the forum and the results were about even,
but the difference is,
yall don't go around guaranteeing your picks 100%

I have a question for you jigga.

Have you ever been robbed? If you have not you cold not still say that after you start betting your money on those clown's claims.

my favorite scam some of the touts pull is where they have lets say 100 suckers waiting on thier plays. These guys will give team A to the first 50, then team B to the last 50. Ensuring they will have 50 happy customers. Then to the 50 losers its a new salespitch on they will get the winner next game. I hate pick services.

If a guy can go 1-1 or 3-3 on a regular basis why would he need to sell his picks as he would be killing his book?

The 'guarantee' isn't on the bet, it's on your purchase.

They don't guarantee your going to win, but they guarantee that if your play doesn't win, they will refund your purchase.

and the 'We don't win unless you do' line, is 100% true.  The Covers Experts only get paid for how well they do and how much they sell. 


You can see that HERE

oh really?
Because I was told by customer support that you only get refunded for individual plays and not multi-picks.

So either somebody has their "guarantee's" mixed up or it's not really a "guarantee" on the purchase.
just only on "some" purchases.

Yes, they guarantee another batch of losers in the upcoming weeks to "make up" for their past losses.

Yes, but if people are dumb enough to pay for picks (I even went through that stage in a desperate moment or two), they deserve what they get.

If you purchase a ;multi pick pack' with 3, 5, 7, picks in it, then the majority of the games have to win for CE to charge you.

The only thing that is not guaranteed is the subscription packages (weekly and monthly)

also, I just checked with Customer Service, and if you were to bet each of your CE purchased picks individually (like your suppose to), then your record with them would be 8-4.  which isn't tooooooo shabby.    So I don't see why you have to hate on them for (so far) providing you a winning record.

the link at the top says "GUARANTEED PICKS"

that is false advertising.
when somebody clicks on that link to go to the picks then you are obligated to guarantee your picks.
if you can't do that then change the name to "guaranteed purchases" 

so 8-4 is the best that the "EXPERTS" can do?
I can go 8-4 just by blindly picking winners without researching.
let me be on the "expert" staff so I can sell picks for $50 a pop and go 2-3 and 0-1 every once in a while.

 Grow up.  The only guarantees in life are taxes, death, and that there is a sucker born every minute.

Let's think about this for a sec, jigga. Why would somebody put a guarantee on a box? Hmmm, very interesting.

Here's the way I see it, jigga. Guy puts a fancy guarantee on a pics cause he wants you to feel all warm and toasty inside.

makes a man feel good

'Course it does. Why shouldn't it? Ya figure you put that little pics under your pillow at night, the Guarantee Fairy might come by and leave a quarter, am I right, jigga?

The point is, how do you know the fairy isn't a crazy glue sniffer? "Building model airplanes" says the little fairy; well, we're not buying it. He sneaks into your house once, that's all it takes. The next thing you know, there's money missing off the dresser, and your daughter's knocked up. I seen it a hundred times jigga.


But why do they put a guarantee on the pics?

Because they know all they sold ya was a guaranteed piece of garbage. That's all it is, isn't it? Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it guaranteed, I will. I got spare time. But for now, for your own sake, for your daughter's sake, ya might wanna think about making your own pics!

 On second thought, you are correct.  Keep going about your profitable existence by purchasing  "guaranteed" picks.

 At least acknowledge Chris Farley's character in "Tommy Boy" for this brilliant quote.

I can't imagine ever buying picks but everyone pretty much knows the score - that "guaranteed" means you only pay if you win.  They aren't giving you a 100% warranty on the money you bet or anything like that.

And if a tout could duplicate that 8-4 run you're complaining about indefinitely, his picks would be worth their weight in gold...
