When it comes to finding the best sports handicapper to follow, there are a lot of good choices out there.
I looked at the records of the premium and free sports picks of everyone we have had over the past five years. I also looked at other sports monitors and trackers to find quality tipsters who don’t sell on our site.
What I found is that there are quite a few awesome handicappers out there. Some of them do better in certain sports, some only cover a handful of teams in a sport.
There are handicappers who do better at beating point spreads. Others focus on totals.
I had only criteria for putting together this list. I want to make sure that these handicappers will make you money.
