Back in 2015, I was bartending part-time at a members-only poolside bar, serving up Mai Tai's and losing my ass betting on sports. One day I was openly complaining about how I only had $500 left, when one of the customers told me that he wins about 90% of his football bets, and offered to share his picks with me. Like anybody with half a brain would react, I called bullshit. But, since I couldn't hit the broadside of a barn with my own picks, I figured what the heck, let's give it a shot.
There were only a few weeks left in the season at the time, and he gave me 15 picks, going 14-1, turning my last $500 into a lifechanging $8,000. It was obvious that this guy had a gift, and when I asked him why he doesn't sell his picks, he told me that he doesn't have any interest in doing so, mostly because he already runs a very successful business in a different industry.
Since I was bartending only part-time, and have clearly very mediocre website building skills, I offered to build and run the website if he keeps sharing his picks, and we'd split the profit 50/50, to which he agreed.
We originally launched in late 2016 and sold our picks for two football seasons, and found great success, frequently sitting atop the leaderboards in both regular season and playoff NFL handicapper rankings (per sportswatchmonitor.com). We took a couple of years off, and are now back for the 2021-22 season, with every intention of reclaiming our place at the #1 spot for many years to come.
