Football handicapping. It sounds awfully difficult and time-consuming, doesn’t it? No, football handicapping has nothing to do with injuring players or preventing them from playing as the name might suggest. To the contrary, football handicapping is about studying trends and injuries as well as past performance of professional football players so that you can make more accurate predictions of what might be to come.  For those who are betting on professional football games, knowing a bit about pro football handicapping is of the utmost importance.

Good handicapping skills come with time and experience, but there is one thing that always remains the same – no matter how effective a handicapper you are – when you put more time into football handicapping, you get more return. Taking a quick glance at the stats from the last week and placing your bet is not effective handicapping. As a matter of fact, it really isn’t handicapping at all.

If you are not putting much effort into handicapping, consider the fact that you may not get much return on it. Part-time handicapping efforts beget part-time results, usually equating to little or no results at all.

The moral of the story is this: if you want to get the best results from your football handicapping endeavors, schedule a block of time for it. When handicapping, take careful consideration of past performances, past and current injuries, risk and predictions by those who really know what they are talking about. As time goes on and you begin to notice trends, handicapping will become less of a chore. Until then, don’t be afraid to devote a little time to it.

When it comes to betting on football, if you want to be successful on a consistent basis, there are really only two options: be some kind of psychic genius or invest some time and money into pro football handicapping. At its most basic, football handicapping is about making educated predictions for the purposes of betting. Many people bet on their favorite teams, or the teams that have done the best so far. This type of wagering works fine for those who are betting on winning or losing teams, but for any bet more involved than that, handicapping may be a good idea.

One of the best tips for beginning gamblers is to hire a professional to do the handicapping for you. While professional handicappers do cost money, they can also help you to win money. If you are new to betting let alone the sport of football, the services of a professional handicapper are imperative.

Handicapping is about using all the available information at hand to make the most logical pick for a bet. Success in pro football handicapping boils down to a few key points:

  • If you don’t know what you are doing, hire somebody to do the handicapping for you.
  • Don’t think you can rush through handicapping. When you start losing money, you will see why.
  • If at first you don’t succeed, try and try again. This applies to a lot, but when it comes to sports you win some and you lose some.

Top Sports Handicappers: How to Know Who to Choose

If you are looking to place bets on professional football match-ups you will find that success in doing so will take a bit more than good guessing skills. If you are a sports aficionado, it may be possible to be your own football handicapper. Handicapping takes a pretty comprehensive knowledge of the sport in general, past picks, injuries, and other vital stats.

When evaluating sports handicappers online, take a look at their picks. They should have a fairly good track record. Keep in mind that a great deal of betting is about chance, so no handicapper should have a perfect track record. If they tell you their track record is perfect, you can be fairly certain that they are not telling the truth.

Another thing to consider when dealing with handicapping services or professional handicappers is rapport. When you have email or telephone communications with them, do you feel like you can trust them or their company? Do you feel confident in their abilities to deliver the results that you are looking for? Your handicapper should be somebody that you can trust with your money and put faith into. Evaluating someone’s trustworthiness is about gut feelings, but so is betting.

With consideration to all of these things and more, some of the top sports handicappers available online are:

Pro View Picks

Vegas Edge

10 Star Picks

NSA Football Picks Service

Keep in mind that not every handicapper is perfect. Use these guidelines and your own discretion when searching for the right handicapper for your needs.

My Handicapper Just Had An Awful Week: Should I Fire Him?

It happens to the best of us. We have a friend or professional handicapper help us out by doing some pro football handicapping for us, and they get it all wrong for an entire week (or two weeks, or month) in a row. This can cost a lot of money, usually resulting in less money for the handicapper as well. Nobody likes to lose a bet, but the thing about betting on sports is that somebody always has to lose. While their job is to assess the odds, they are not professional psychics and cannot be perfect every time.

Many professional handicappers have bad streaks. As a matter of fact, it is probably safe to say that all of them do. When you are trying out a handicapper for the first time or the two of you are relatively new to one another, it is not uncommon for them to offer an extra week or more of free services to make up for what you have lost. It would be impossible to compensate for every loss, but in the event that it looks like you may have been better off without his services most professional ‘cappers’ are willing to make such gestures.

Every handicapping firm is different, and individual handicappers can make their own rules. If things just aren’t working out with a handicapper that you have been using consider the fact that it may be time to move to another one.

Handicapping is an important part of betting, especially for die hard football fans. If you want to employ the help of a handicapper it is important to understand the difference between bad streaks and bad handicapping.

Pro Football Handicapping

When it comes to betting on football, it can be tough to know where to put your money. Sports are one of those things that you don’t have to know a whole lot about in order to be able to bet on them. Such is the case with football, and it’s mostly because of the existence of sports handicappers online.

Many people who bet on professional football can do so because they have an intimate knowledge of the sport itself. If you know about football, can assess different injuries and their present and future impact, know the strengths and weaknesses of a host of key players on many teams and have some knowledge as to team stats, it may be possible for you to do your own handicapping.

Whether you are doing your own football handicapping or you are paying a professional to take care of your picks for you, there is one thing to keep in mind: nothing is for certain. Betting is about chance, and when it comes to sports everybody loses at least once in a while. While it is important to examine a potential handicapper’s track record, understand that there is no such thing as perfect and that bad streaks happen to all handicappers—even good ones.

Putting big money on a football game may not be the best idea without handicapping. Betting is about fun and entertainment, but without doing the right speculation beforehand putting large amounts of money on a whim may result in disaster.
