Have you ever gotten an email or a phone call with a guaranteed winner? Asked how much money can you get on this big play? Promises after promises that never get delivered. Well guys that is what we call a “tout.” Someone who pretends to be a sports handicapper, but really does not bet the games he gives you – even the guaranteed ones! Some even go so far as to give 50% of their clients one side and 50% the other side. This way he is guaranteed money. This is why it is important to know who you are dealing with. These are scams, and if it sounds too good to be true it probably is!
The Sports Investor
A sports investor is a person that lives, sleeps, and breathes sports. Sports is our passion! There are plenty of us investors out there that do this for a living. No real investor would GUARANTEE an outcome of a game. Some might tell you we have information leading to it having a good or even great chance to win, but never a guarantee! These are the people in the industry you would want to take advice from. The challenge then is to find the right ones. FixedEdge provides the best of both worlds. We have top sports investors around the world that will work with you hand in hand so that you know why you chose to, as we say, “invest with the best!”
The Sports Handicapper
Those are just a few of the differences between the “tout” and the successful sports investor. This explains things that you may have wondered such as why these so called “sports handicappers” needed to sell those guaranteed winners and that’s because they aren’t true sports handicappers. The reality behind that is: If I had some “could not lose games” I could just bet all the money I had myself, take out a second mortgage on the house, etc. Who would care when we could put it back in the morning after that guaranteed win, right? It NEVER works that way!
Always find a knowledgeable sports investor to invest with, someone that cares about you AND your money. Find someone who treats your investment as they treat their own. Find someone who tailors your investments to your budget instead of giving you prices for games. GOOD sports investments are about a good working relationship, and trust. For everyone that has had a horrible experience getting picks, and losing money – just know that there are plenty of us out there that can and will help. The first step to great investments is getting rid of that gambling mentality, and then to always “invest with the best!”
