I enjoy watching game but do not have time to spend hours researching plays are there any good cappers out there anymore??? If these pay for pick guys are so good why they gotta charge so crazy prices for picks with no breakdowns on the games. ATS past stats don't mean garbage, but styles of play and systems coaches use is what matters. No good breakdown guys . ATS and the past stats don't mean garbage.... ANY GOOD Cappers out there that break the game down dam its 2017

I wouldn't say that ATS and the past stats don't mean sh!t.

They do.

But they are only two tools of an entire arsenal.

My point is goose it worth a quick look, but certain styles of play and coaching philosophies are more important. Like WVU CBB gives up when down late in a game they don't foul.  Redskins Cousin can't throw middle field passes in thight windows. Could be a easy under play if d playing against stops his run game and closes those deep passes down. Y make money in this business by understanding match ups watching games like all 22 film not by past stats only work if the matchups dictate it. Bulls vs Cavs Bulls win season high in 3s made but stats say the Bulls can't make 3s match up led to this situation and dog barked Bulls won

Bottom line not paying some tout who sells me past ATS crap stats like these covers pay plays but don't even watch the games or know the teams.

"certain styles of play and coaching philosophies are more important"

Could not agree more. 

Look no further than the Patriots at 16-3 ATS.

Some Cappers get blinded by hatred instead of sanity.

Books don't give money away for free.

Even the best cappers don't win money all the time.  You can hit 60% one season and 40% the next...look at the Hilton contest...

exactly 

and from looking at post 5 you seem to know about CBB so why stress about a paid (or indeed free) handicapping service letting you down 
Reduce your unit size and bet your own plays and remember, try to get a base hit first before you start swinging for the fences

Best NCAAF Capper I ever saw was get_liquid and his "picks from the trailer park".  Every Saturday morning we would wait for his picks to hit the Forum.  He got so red hot one season.  Never in a half century I ever saw anybody on a roll like that and doubt I will ever see anything close to that again.  Incredible.

Hey
I know you are talking about USA sports but have to invite you to Tipster app. In that app there are a few great tipsters to choose from. Many of you will say darn it , I don't believe but maybe someone will try. The best tipsters in the group are Balkan value, K tipster and pga. I suggest to those who are interested to contact *Damjan BVB Horvat* on facebook and he will tell you everything you need. 
The prices in app are very low somewhere between 10-30 euros per month. And ROI is at least 20% on those mentioned tipsters.
Good luck ??

TRY working at it Thorpe whydontcha

Most fail you bet....

Grinders?.....don't have the talent

Talented guys (go on these great hot streaks that really seem to impress folks).....don't have the DISCIPLINE


Very few combine one or both....with the ability to handle the ADVERSITY that will come along .......QUICKLY

Your boi Double Up is a great eggzample....
  *he knows it's true so no biggie..........

A talented grinder....he costs himself a TON of cash
  *he can only handle the GOOD times.....life is all rainbows / unicorns and shiit like that.....so when the BAD times arrive...he goes to pieces....increases his bets....gets all down on himself....................WHY?.............

THIS.....is a common thread with 'successful' folks as well....they don't give up nearly as easily as most
  *Walters (was).....a crappy gambler

I'm not smarter than most....just older.....and have dealt with a tremendous amount of adversity....and will NEVER lose money on a CFB season...........EVER

Bowl season lost like 12 of 1st 13 bets.....didn't blink > change a thing.....very few could have handled it (somehow shocked at things not going their way wtf).....it's tougher sure when ALL your buddies are calling you an idiot.....what happened to you man!
  *then hit like 12/13......finished on a 25-6 run.....with big bets on Clemson ML and NE.....< most will say lucky here.....OF COURSE because the SAME principle applies..........

I took the team with the WILL / MINDSET / QB.......to WIN
  *both ran about 100 plays and wore the other (more talented team) down at the end......coulda gone the other way sure......but it didn't.......

Very true.  New guys come here and bash others.  NHL Forum is really the only exception.  

Best forum on the site.

look in the forums. It's embarrassing how little these kids know in reading lines and picking games. Average age in there is about 22.

Like your saying lots better than mine....Every word 100% true.......I recall one of your posts of a week or two ago Goose, where you said " The only drugs I never took were heroin and crystal meth" 

So, you must have tried "shrooms" at some point?.... I am thinking of maybe trying some shrooms sometime soon as I never did so in the past...............

..Yes-no?....Your opinion would be very informative, if you choose to do so...
