VR went 2-7 this weekend in FB and is WAY down on the year, yet the spin continues to be 67% on 3* or some BS.  There is a lot of good info on this site and some very helpful people, but this type of marketing is highway robbery.  The only reason I am not totally pissed is I have actually started fading VR's picks.  On second thought, it might be the best package I have ever bought!  They just need to inform you up front you are supposed to bet the opposite of the guy's picks.

From what i can tell in from his last 27 3* selections  he is 13-14 hitting 48% as of EOD 11/13

But i just read  "   PRIME-TIME 3* = 74% on L/27..68% SEASON"

So maybe i'm missing something but i don't think  13 wins is the same as 20 wins. Maybe some plays didnt get entered in the system.

Can anyone help me find the missing games Thanks

VR seems to have a good handle on historical point spread tendencies but doesn't do a lot of work on the team/player matchups. An example is his thinking that Aaron Rodgers being out was being overreacted to on the betting line Vs. Philly a few weeks ago (and there was more to the line than Rodgers being out.) I still like listening to him.

Pregame provides LOTS of very valuable and free info and conversation on the podcasts (that kind of audio content and conversation is not available anywhere else, especially without the "personality" crap) and any marketing done off of this is okay with me; it's just buyer beware, as always. As for me, I learned a long time ago that is well nigh impossible -- for me anyway -- to win at gambling in the long run, which is why I bet extremely small, for amusement only.

Another pointless thread, win or lose these pro's are trying there best, you really think they want to lose, man its a marathon not a sprint, and i am sure when VR or whoever has a good day, i bet you don't come on here given them props, so do this site a favor and cry me a river somewhere else. i understand losing sucks we have all been there, but seriously making up a thread like this isn't going to put the money back into your pocket. Take your lose like a man, and get it back starting tonight, good luck

Its not the losing, its the false advertising on his plays.  Its advertising a grossly inflated winning percentage on certain bets.  For example his 3*'s bets are 58% the past 34 bets but he is advertising 74% and not updating his records on pregame.  So someone could buy his 3* picks thinking its hitting 74% and not realize his true record to date is 58%  That is stealing!

If you pay for the picks you have a right to complain.....If you don't spend any money you shouldn't be saying a word
