Default Handicappers what is the deal?

I see many who give free picks and winning records.

Of course you win some you loose some but how should someone play to make money?

Do people really come out ahead after you might wager 110 or 115 and loose but win another.

I just think the odds are all on the house.

Is there a handicapper online who is well known for his picks? I mean if it was that easy we all would be rich, you wouldn't see 60 minutes showing people thousands of dollars indebt because of sport bets.

Am I missing something here?

You're not the only one who has been wondering about this - in the late '80s the New York Post did an expose on this "industry," and dubbed those who engage in it "scamdicappers."

Somehow I doubt if much has changed since then.
