I have been around sports betting for the last five years. I have made a lot of my income from it for the last three of them. I was fortunate in that I became close friends with someone who was successful already and he taught me how to do it all. It still took a year to get really profitable, even with the knowledge I had.
Still, even now I sometimes find myself looking to see if I can find a new edge. While the edges are rare, there are an abundance of betting systems that are sold on the promise of almost never losing. One guy, Dr. Jay, has introduced what he calls an infallible system for baseball. He says it never loses. The claim is that it is mathematically impossible for it to lose.
Of course, the claims will always grab your attention and make you want to check them out. When you do, you will find a lot of reviews for the products. And, not surprisingly, most of them are trying to get you to buy it because they are written by affiliates who profit from the sale.
From John Morrison’s Sports Betting Champ, which pays nearly $100 per sale to the affiliate, to Dr. Jay and the Sports Betting Professor, all of them have an army of affiliates working to convince you what a great product it is.
They write review articles, lurk in forums, and even build websites to convince you. And if you search for any of these products by name, almost every listing on the first few pages of Google is going to be an affiliate promotion page.
The fact is, these “reviews” and websites are actually referred to as a presell in the internet marketing world. They are designed to help reinforce what you already want to believe about the product, and to “confirm” the purchase to be a wise one. Many will be vague about the contents because the writer has never even seen the product.
These reviews should be considered nothing more than an extension of the sales process in nearly every case. I certainly wouldn’t trust them when considering a $200 purchase.
Since those can not be trusted and I have seen most all of the over-hyped betting systems available, maybe I can help you to understand what they are about. I do not sell them so the truth will not cost me anything.
Lets start with Mr. John Morrison and the Sports Betting Champ. This one has been around the longest and you can find all kinds of comments, good and bad. Of course, at $100 a pop, the affiliate presence is almost overwhelming. It is the best example of affiliate reviews saturating the search engines for a product search.
The sales page neglects to tell you that it requires progressive betting to achieve the results it claims. Each bet is really a series of three bets, of which you may win one out of the three 97% of the time. With a progression of three, you hit 87% with a coin toss.
It also neglects the fact that when you lose it costs you from 13 to 18 wins, depending on the odds. And the books are quite well aware of the systems so they make you pay to use them.
It is my understanding that once you buy the product, you can expect for every email you send to John to be totally ignored. There is also some suggestion that the win-lose numbers posted on the web site for each system are altered after the fact if he changes a filter in the system.
He also tries to sell you a bunch of other systems and tries to get you to sign up to a sports book through his affiliate account. Then after a year, he suggest you need to pay again for the lifetime picks you got when you made the purchase in the first place.
To keep it brief, there is a lot of scam in the product from the bogus affiliate reviews all the way through after the sale. As for support, you will be ignored unless he has something to try to sell you.
Besides, anyone who knows how to use a search engine can find them to download for free. Even if you can’t find the systems for download themselves, the specifics of them can be found on discussion groups.
There is also a newer product called the Sports Betting Professor. It promises a 90% win rate. He claims some guy with a PHD picked 8 out of 9 games in a weekend using some secret formula. The implication is that the system picks 90% straight betting.
Then you get the systems (yes they are on the search engines) and find out it is the same Bet A Bet B Bet C system as the Sports Betting Champ. Remember that a coin toss on a progression of three will get you an 87.5% win rate and the claim becomes a lot more reasonable. He can get you a 2.5 percent edge over a coin toss. That leaves you with 52.5% win rate, which is awfully close to the break even point.
Another big disappointment I am glad I didn’t fork out $197 for.
And now you have Dr. Jay and his infallible system that is mathematically impossible to lose. The claim is it hasn’t lost once in 25 years. He doesn’t say it, but the claim is really of no losing seasons, not no losing bets as implied. It has had months over a season where it has lost money.
It requires you to make 8 Parlay bets on six teams, three of which are favorites. If one of the favorites lose by exactly one run, you lose the bet. So much for being infallible.
Dr. Jays infallible system is just as fallible as any other system. There is no sure bet on the future, unless it is that the sun will rise. If it doesn’t, there will be nobody to collect the win anyway.
I have only touched on three of the many systems you will see being sold online. But the story is the same with all of the others as well. These systems are nothing more than get rich quick on the internet scams disguised as sports betting systems. They are marketed the same way. They are selling the same dream to a different audience.
I know from personal experience that big profits can be made betting on sports. I also know that these systems can be used profitably if done right. But the fact remains that anyone who expects to win a lot of money from a single system, especially a loss chaser, will end up losing it all.
The systems, if used, should be used only as a small part of your sports betting business. More and smaller bets with many good systems is the key to the big money.
For example, I have had good success using the Sports Betting Champ and the Sports Betting Professor. But I have succeeded with them because they have been modified to work within my business, as a very small part of a larger business system.
I hope I have shed some light on these systems, what they are, and how they never deliver on the sales promise. They are sold on a dream of unlimited winnings on a sure bet that just doesn’t exist in the real world.
When it comes to sports betting system reviews, they can not be trusted at all. I repeat. They can not be trusted at all. If you see a claim of near perfection, or a review supporting such a claim, run for the hills. Hopefully, you will find someone there who knows how to really win and is willing to teach you.Serious about Betting ? Click Here!
