If you are new to the sports betting industry, then perhaps you have never heard of a sports handicapper. If you are someone that has spent some time in this industry, hopefully, you have used the help of a sports handicapper.

My name is Wunderdog, and I am one of the sports handicappers that I just referenced above. I have spent more than two decades in the sports betting industry, and I am happy to share my knowledge and passion for sports betting with others.

The sports betting industry can be tough to navigate, especially for those beginning sports bettors. That’s where a sports handicapper comes in, and yes, they can help you make some money. 

There are still some things to remember when using a sports handicapper to help you navigate through the industry, and I will discuss these factors below. 

Time and Patience Still Needed

Even if you plan to use a sports handicapper to help you out in the industry, it is important to still have patience. Handicappers, like myself, can help you win money, but that money is not going to come overnight. 

It takes time to build up your bankroll, and every day does not provide a good sports betting opportunity. Sports handicappers are not going to deliver winning picks each day as some days don’t offer good betting options.

If you are getting into the sports betting industry trying to become rich overnight, you have chosen the wrong hobby. Sports handicappers will help you make some money, but you have to understand that this can be a long and difficult process.

Shop For Handicappers

If you plan on using a sports handicapper, it is important to do your research and “shop around.” Personally, I am always going to recommend you to my site, but I do understand that there are some other options available to sports bettors. 

This process should be similar to what it looks like when you are shopping around for a new sportsbook to use. You should be looking for trustworthy handicappers that offer excellent picks at an affordable price.

It’s important to not just settle for the cheapest or free option as some of these handicappers might not deliver the best results. If you are looking for some help from a handicapper, you need to make sure that you choose the right one for you. 

Picks Explained

Another way that sports handicappers can help make you money is by offering detailed explanations of all of their picks. I always provide at least a small explanation when delivering picks to my customers, because I want them to know and understand why I am making that selection.

The explanations can also serve an even bigger purpose as it can allow the sports bettor to learn some inside information into the sports betting industry. I’ve already mentioned that the sports betting industry can be difficult, and getting extra knowledge can help bettors win money on their own. 

More Betting Options

Sports handicappers typically don’t specialize in just one sporting event or market, and they generally have knowledge in a wide range of sports. I have gained knowledge of many different sports over the last 20 years, and I want to share that knowledge with my customers.

Using a sports handicapper can unlock new betting opportunities for the common sports bettor, leading to additional ways to make money. This doesn’t mean that you have to start betting on new sporting events, but that option will be available after getting new information from a sports handicapper.

There are certain sporting events that offer a better chance to make money, and sports handicappers like myself will help point these out to sports bettors. 

Less Time Spent on Research

Another way that using a sports handicapper can help you make some money is by limiting the amount of time spent on research. The best sports bettors know that if you plan on succeeding in this industry, then doing research is extremely important.

Handicappers will do all of the necessary research for you, and that will allow you to focus on what bets you are willing to make. The more time spent focusing on the bets, the more successful you will be. The more successful you are, the more money that you will make.

Proven Rate of Success

One of the biggest reasons that most sports bettors choose to use a sports handicapper is because they have a proven rate of success. I am no exception, and bettors can find the statistics behind my success rate by simply looking at my website.

Not only do I provide my overall success rate, but I also breakdown how well I do in each particular sporting event. I don’t claim to be an “expert” in every single sport that is offered, but I do have my specialties. 

If you are looking for a handicapper outside of myself, you should always be looking to compare success rates. If the success rate is at or above 60 percent, then that is a sports handicapper that you should use and trust. 

No Guarantees

Even though I have discussed several ways that sports handicappers can help make you money, you must also remember that there are no guarantees in sports betting. Handicappers are dedicated and devoted to providing you with an excellent service, but there is no guarantee that all of their picks will win.

I am one of the top handicappers in the industry, and even I have some rough days. If you stick with me, though, and show the patience and time I mentioned earlier, you will be happy with the results. 

Sports betting, or betting in general, comes with some risks, but the payoff will be great after some time. If and when I do suffer some bad days, you can expect that I will work even harder to provide you with some winning picks the next day.
