Haven't we been told that you get what you pay for? I have heard that many times. So if its true that would make a free sports pick well, worthless. Right?
Quite the opposite is true. A free sports pick is not worthless at all. But …….
I knew it. There is always a but.
The truth about a free sports pick is that it's only as good as its user. Let's take a closer look at what is really going on with sports betting.
When you wager on a sporting event there is most likely a 50/50 chance that either outcome could happen. For example if the Bears are playing the Lions and the Lions are +7 that means the event has been handicapped so that it's a 50/50 chance either outcome can happen because of the point spread put in place.
And let's say the free sports pick you received was to take the Lions +7. It may or may not end up being correct, but the outcome alone does not define the free sports pick's worth. How it's used and over what time period does.
As a fellow sports bettor just realize the free sports pick over time will be correct 45-55% of the time and that's what you need to focus on. Assuming you are using good bankroll management and have a set plan, those picks just need to be paired with a proven betting system and over time will be profitable ten fold.
That's right with a proven betting system you can use free sports picks that win as low as 40% of the time and still come out ahead.
The pick alone is worthless, especially if you put your entire week's paycheck on that pick and it lays a dud for you. But as a sports bettor you need to take a look at sports betting as an investment and set up a plan to follow that allows you to reach your desired return on that investment. Even using a free sports pick provider.
