"Guaranteed Picks" sites typically charge TWICE as much for a pick - meaning they collect DOUBLE the Pregame.com amount when the pick wins. But it's important to realize that one pick winning is not the same as earning you a profit!
For example, if Pregame.com charges $25 for a pick, these sites charge $50 . . . so let's say you buy 10 picks in a week . . . 5 win, 5 lose . . . so the "guarnateed" sites end up with $250 of your money (same as Pegame.com charging you 1/2 as much on every pick). If they win 50%, they cost you the same amount of money.
Now get this: if they happen to actually win greater than 50% over the long run, they cost you MORE than Pregame.com. (i.e., their double priced picks are charged to you over half the time). So when they are flipping coins, they cost you the same. But when they actually win, guaranteed sites cost you more!
On the other hand, a useful guarantee would be guaranteeing you a PROFIT over an extended period of time. This is a very rare offer. We are proud that Pregame.com offers this customer-friendly program with http://www.betlikeapro.com/
Even more dangerous than being more expensive, "guaranteed picks" are a deceptive marketing ploy. The amount risked by bettors is always much bigger than the cost of the pick - and these sites are certainly no offering a guarantee on the amount bet! Yet, these marketers attempt to create the false appearance of less risk. Not only is this untrue - but it's very dangerous in that it leads bettors to risk more than they can afford to lose!
Pregame.com does have one type of insurance offer (Money Back to Comeback) - and it's narrow purpose is to encourage you to AVOID over-betting on the biggest games.
The "guaranteed" sites want you to think you are buying winners. But since they get paid the same amount even when hitting 50%, THAT IS NOT THE CASE. What Pregame.com knows you are buying is expert advise from elite handicappers. Understanding this difference will help keep you out of trouble.
Be very careful of sites whose business model is based upon encouraging you to engage in dangerous and losing money management.
And rest assured the Pros are very motivated to win - not only are they betting their own games, but the more they win, the more they sell.
The bottom line is, when considering that
a) we do not get paid more when winning over 50%
b) the unmatched number of promotions and discounts we offer
c) subscription and monthly discounts
Pregame.com is the lowest priced high quality pick site in the world!
