| What Makes Us No. 1?
So why do the handicappers here win
more than anyone and anywhere else? It is a great question, but a
Our business model at
OffshoreInsiders.com is to compile the winningest services and
letting the product take care of itself.
You will not find a better sports
service. Other websites may spend more money advertising and
certainly others make better promises.
These are practices other sites
subscribe to, but we won't. We can't because it's outside our
With most of the heavily marketed
portals, notice how on a large card, each of their handicappers is
advertising a different game. Many of the higher traffic sites meet
and assign who will have a big play on which game as to never
conflict, compete or overlap.
That will never be done at
OffshoreInsiders.com. It goes against everything I stand for as a
professional gambler and handicapper.
Flat out, most handicappers are
business people first (and too often bad ones), we are handicappers
and gamblers first and foremost.
When I was GM at Freescoreboard, we
looked into doing a cable television show. But we had to have the
broadcast done by Wednesday afternoon, hence which picks to promote,
long before quality late information came in.
This fact alone made me completely
eliminate any thoughts of doing a cable TV show because it meant
sacrificing the product. This is not an option.
I looked into buying time on the major
sports sites video infomercial. Again, the broadcasts had to be
approved and submitted 72 hours before they aired. Let others
sacrifice the product in the name of marketing. We won't.
Before that I worked for the free
scorephones. When we had ads running in the USA Today and many local
newspapers all over the country, we were ordered to have our plays up
by the night before because we had big advertising hitting people's
driveways in the morning.
As somebody who has been an employee
then GM, then CEO of major sports handicapping websites and entities
in the pre-Internet days, I assure you NOBODY retains clients better
than we do.
But I can say with 100 percent
certainty, it's because OffshoreInsiders.com business model is get
the best handicappers and build it from there.
I have been a full-time handicapper
since the 1980s. I was on the scorephones long, long, long before the
Almost every human being who sold picks
for a living contacted the scorephone to sell their plays. A very
small number of handicapper were good enough to be part of the
scorephone, which was king at the time.
I was on that short list.
After about eight years this scorephone
was bought out by a notorious but wealthy boiler room tout who
assured us to make money it's not about the product but hyping it.
Every game must be sold as if it's the
biggest game of your life, we were ordered. Sell your soul to the
I left and took the best scorephone
handicappers with me.
MVP Sportsbook used to build
handicapping sites as part of a marketing plan to dominate search
engines. Handicappers would keep 100 percent of revenue, MVP just
wanted exclusivity to advertise their sportsbook.
Established handicappers didn't have to
sacrifice anything. They simply had another source to market their
It also served as almost an American
Idol for upstart cappers who had talent, but not marketing savvy.
As General Manager of the first
toll-free scorephone and major website network, I worked out an
arrangement where I had access to every pick, every record, every
analysis of about 500 handicappers in the program.
I used it to scout handicappers to
recruit. Well-established and upstart handicappers alike abound in
I see one guy always bragging how he
fired Brando this and Harry that because they were not performing. We
thoroughly vet our handicappers before we ask for your hard earned
They fire because they hire
handicappers we'd never consider.
In short, I know this industry inside
