(304673) LG Twins at (304674) NC Dinos
Game: (304673) LG Twins at (304674) NC Dinos
Date/Time: Aug 23 2021 5:30 AM EDT
Play Rating: E%
Play: 1H Total Under 5.5 (-115)
Suarez for LG is the best pitcher in Korea hands down. He has shut down every team he faces and in his last 4 starts he has allowed more than 1 run only 1 time (3). His K:BB rate is unreal. Song is not a very good pitcher but LG is not a very good hitting team and I thing weakness vs weakness even out. NC has a good lineup but Suarez can neutralize them. LG can not make up the difference in run total and 5.5 seems way too high. Take the 1st half Under 5.5. If you only get full game take the full game under. LG has a great bullpen.

(304671) Kiwoom Heroes at (304672) KIA Tigers
Game: (304671) Kiwoom Heroes at (304672) KIA Tigers
Date/Time: Aug 23 2021 5:30 AM EDT
Play Rating: B%
Play: Kiwoom Heroes -150
The juice is a bit high which is why I am making it a 2% play. Kiwoom has one of my favorite home-grown pitchers here in Choi Won Tae and they have the lineup, bullpen and SP advantages. I thought the line would be around -220 so even though -150 seems steep to me it is a lot of value. Make it a 2% play and take Kiwoom on the money line

TEXAS @ BOSTON | 08/23 | 1:10 PM EDT
ANALYSIS: Makeup of Sunday's postponed game and the only matinee on Monday. The Red Sox should be able to tee off on Texas lefty Kolby Allard, who has a 5.59 ERA on the road and 5.11 in day games. Boston's Nathan Eovaldi leads Sox starters in wins (10), ERA (3.91), innings (138.0), and WHIP (1.20). He has been quite a bit better at home (3.24 ERA).

ANALYSIS: This is certainly not an elite matchup of contenders late in the season. But in this matchup of the two worst teams in the NL, Pittsburgh has a clear edge not reflected in the line as Arizona starts Humberto Mejia, who was bad in Triple-A this year and bad in the big leagues in limited action in 2020 with Miami. Arizona defeated Colorado on Sunday, 8-4. However, the Diamondbacks are 0-8 since April 23 on the road off a road game in which they scored at least six runs.

BMR Service Plays

If you have been betting sports for even a short time then you know all about paid professional touts, otherwise known as sports handicappers. It's a shadowy business but there are thousands of handicappers who will happily charge you for their sports picks. Whether it is the NFL, college football, NBA, college hoops, NHL, soccer, or matches in MMA, tennis, golf, even auto racing, their expert opinions are for sale.

But how good are these guys? Like anything else, there is good, bad, and plenty in-between. The marketing come-ons are priceless and some of them will want you to believe they have never had a losing day. The implication is, the more you pay the more valuable that pick is, and many come with guarantees. The only problem is that very rarely does the customer get a refund if the pick loses, he just gets another pick…only this time it's "free".

Transparency is everything and there are professional cappers who are honest regarding their records and don't claim to win every game. But separating the wheat from the chaff is tough to do in this industry so Bookmakers Review neither endorses nor promotes any paid handicapper on our site. The opinions you see expressed in our Service Plays Forum are disseminated by the posters who have acquired this information by either paying for the service themselves or finding out through other means.

Of course, there are free sports picks that paid touts release in order to generate interest in their service. Their predictions are predicated on their experience in the industry and their ability to correctly handicap games. The implied value in having to purchase their information is what teases curiosity and brings bettors to the table to find out if they are truly better than the average sports bettor.

The use of this information is for entertainment purposes and should in no way be construed as an endorsement or an entity affiliated with Bookmakers Review. Check the federal, state, and local laws in your area and avoid where prohibited.

What's a Letter Grade?

Handicappers who charge for their daily selections whether it be basketball, MLB, major bowl games, soccer, Stanley Cup, or whatever season is current, normally have a grading system. Posts from our members will identify the level of the sports tips in terms of A as the weakest and then B, C, D, etc. Oftentimes these threads will be titled with the name of the handicapper, as the more popular paid handicappers will get substantially more views which are also indicated in the thread.

Other times, there will be posts from users who collect information at several online gambling sites and will create a thread that is often titled Service Plays of the Day. These threads will routinely have the date accompanying the sports picks so our guests can understand whether this information is for today's picks or dates in the past or future.

There will either be a moneyline, a total, or a point spread attached to each pick but you should understand that getting a sharp line and the best odds are critical to long term success so make certain that the odds stated are reasonable and not an idyllic number that never existed at any sportsbook, anywhere in the world. The information contained is from the posters here at BMR and not directly from the source. Many times the paid handicappers and their sports betting picks will be found in a number of threads throughout the forum.

Poster Interaction

The best part of the Service Plays Forum is that it is dynamic and allows our users to interact with each other. Today a particular handicapper might be running white-hot while a check of another capper could prove the opposite. The regular visitors will be able to determine who is better at which sport and how often do they cover. All opinions are welcome and you will often see fascinating information from the posters themselves who often know more than many of those providing the paid tips.

One thing that is prohibited is the direct writeups from the paid cappers. Only the picks are revealed and the letter grade assigned. BMR prohibits copying and pasting the analysis used to derive these selections but the conclusions and predictions are freely shared on our pages. Some paid handicappers will use statistics and analysis while others are more casual as to why they chose Team A or Team B.

Whatever sport you happen to be interested in, there are paid cappers willing to sell their opinions but it is important to be aware that many of them are powered more towards marketing and less to intense analytical scrutiny and betting trends. The best cappers will keep an honest log of their picks and will be fully transparent so that even if they lose an NBA, MLB, college bowl game, or a football game, for example, the legitimate cappers will acknowledge it and not attempt to bury it in their record.

Like the average bettor, paid cappers run hot and cold, whether it is a daily play or throughout a full season. Some of the best cappers stick to one sport like the NBA but most will sell their daily opinions on whichever sport is in session. And if you are not sure then ask around and pick a poster's brain familiar with the industry and the touts who get paid to make their customers money. All questions are welcome.

Lastly, it is important you do a bit of due diligence of your own before making a bet. The best bettors understand that they are as only as good as their last winner and today is a brand new day. Sports betting takes time and energy but it can be enjoyable and lucrative if you remain disciplined. And remember to make sure you check out the odds at more than just one site so when you view these threads and the picks from these "sports betting experts" make certain the odds are correct because if you do, it won't be long before you will be able to distinguish between the scamdicappers and the true handicappers.
