Hello all, I am a new poster to pregame but I have been following the site since baseball season started. I have seen the good along with the bad. I will be making some amateur picks from time to time and will keep my records up to date. I am no pro by any means but I do a lot of research on teams and have done quite well this baseball season. Any comments or advise is appreciated. I will do my best to predict winners but as always remember that my picks are for entertainment purposes only. My unit per play is 100 so for example a 1* is 100, a 2* is 200 and so on. My highest play would be a 4*. Lets win some games !

if you are an amateur picker and not a pro, what makes you think that you can estimate your edge? or, better yet, what makes you think you have any edge at all? why not just flat bet all your stuff until you determine that you do have an edge, however small it might be, and then go from there?

obviously you can do what you want, but the unit/stars stuff that's so prevalent seems misleading. there are several pros who release an overwhelmingly high number of 2 and 3 star plays, to the point that they are far more common than 1 star plays. it's almost like everyone is playing by a different set of rules, which makes it very difficult to evaluate a particular capper (forum or pro). some release 2 and 3 star plays at an unbelievably high rate. can someone here explain why this is so?

all it does is inflate the results good or bad and it doesn't give a true representation of how well a capper is actually performing.

For someone that just joined under THIS name today, is that not a nice warm welcome.

Of any big win we have had, or winning streak, or even coming out of a losing streak, of this I am most proud:

Some forum posters have broken into the industry and have achieved moderate success while carrying themselves with professionalism and integrity. Dave Essler, of the pick-selling site Pregame, immediately comes to mind.

I still want to know if all these people on Twitter and Pick-Selling sites claim to have beaten up books for years, I would think there would be no places left to place wagers.

he solicited comments/advice. my advice was for him to start off flat betting to see how he performs, rather than weighting his record, which could send him down a misleading path, good or bad.
