Cubs +165

CHI. WHITE SOX @ CHI. CUBS | 08/08 | 7:08 PM EDT
CHI. CUBS +165
ANALYSIS: I realize the White Sox are one of the best teams in the AL and the Cubs are in full rebuilding mode. But this line is way too skewed toward the south siders. White Sox starter Dylan Cease, a former Cubs prospect, is 0-2 with a 5.91 ERA in two starts against his former team. Take the Cubs.

N.Y. METS @ PHILADELPHIA | 08/08 | 1:05 PM EDT
PHILADELPHIA -160
ANALYSIS: About a month ago, I probably wouldn't have bet against the Mets' Taijuan Walker but he has fallen off a cliff or shrub or whatever your metaphor (do people fall off shrubs?). The Phillies' Zack Wheeler also is regressing a bit but is still a better pitcher. Honestly don't love a lot of games today but this seems safe with the Phils on fire. What do I know? I just watched Beaches with my lovely wife and am still crying ... not gonna cry Roy!

SAN FRANCISCO @ MILWAUKEE | 08/08 | 2:10 PM EDT
MILWAUKEE -111
ANALYSIS: The Brewers will look to bounce back after committing a silly mistake that led to Saturday's loss. Milwaukee will send LHP Brett Anderson to the mound. He's been solid in day games, as batters are hitting just .227 against him. San Francisco RHP Johnny Cueto has a 4.91 ERA and 1.61 WHIP on the road, where opposing batters are hitting .319 against him. The Brewers are 31-14 in day games this season. This will be the Giants' 13th straight contest without a day off. They finally get one on Monday. Take the Brewers.

N.Y. METS @ PHILADELPHIA | 08/08 | 1:05 PM EDT
PHILADELPHIA -160
ANALYSIS: Ever since the All-Star Game, Taijuan Walker has not been the same. In four starts since, he's allowed seven homers and 20 earned runs in 15 innings. The Phils have won seven straight and send ace Zack Wheeler to the mound as they eye the sweep. I'm laying the price.

SEATTLE @ N.Y. YANKEES | 08/08 | 1:05 PM EDT
N.Y. YANKEES -135
ANALYSIS: New York climbed back to take Saturday’s contest after Seattle had a great chance at the victory. That leaves the Mariners in a bad place in this getaway game. With a trip back home and a day off on Monday, look for Seattle to let this game get away before regrouping. New York is looking for a four-game sweep, and that is a real edge for teams in general. Clubs going for a four-game sweep are 419-300 (+5.4% ROI playing on).

N.Y. METS @ PHILADELPHIA | 08/08 | 1:05 PM EDT
PHILADELPHIA -157
ANALYSIS: I’m not on Philadelphia because RHP Zack Wheeler has the best WAR among all pitchers or because the Phillies are in first place after a seven-game winning streak, but rather it’s because New York RHP Taijuan Walker has hit a brick wall. The Mets won 14 of his first 17 starts but have lost his last three, with him allowing a total of 21 runs in his last four outings. Take the Phillies to win and complete the three-game sweep.

N.Y. METS @ PHILADELPHIA | 08/08 | 1:05 PM EDT
PHILADELPHIA -157
ANALYSIS: Given the pitching matchup and the direction of the two teams, the moneyline here isn't nearly what it should be. Mets starter Taijuan Walker has a 12.00 ERA in his last four starts. The Mets have lost eight of their last 10. The offense is helpless. Oh, and the Phillies are starting Cy Young frontrunner Zack Wheeler. They've also won seven in a row and nearly everything is going right. We're sticking with what works and riding the hot hand here.

BOSTON @ TORONTO | 08/08 | 1:07 PM EDT
TORONTO -203
ANALYSIS: Don’t love too many games today, and I was thinking about going with the under to avoid the juice, but Garrett Richards has faced the Blue Jays in two of his last three starts allowing four runs in each game. The Red Sox have looked lost at the plate and were probably lucky to have split the doubleheader with the Blue Jays bats quiet. The Red Sox struggle against lefties and JD Martinez is out of the lineup. The Blue Jays have won eight of their last 10 games while the Red Sox have lost eight of their last 10 games.

N.Y. METS @ PHILADELPHIA | 08/08 | 1:05 PM EDT
PHILADELPHIA -157
ANALYSIS: The Phillies have won their last seven games while the Mets have lost eight of their last 10 games. The Mets are 23-34 on the road this season while the Phillies are 33-21 at home. Zack Wheeler has been the Phillies best pitcher all season, so he should minimize the innings for the bullpen today. Taijuan Walker has allowed at least four earned runs in each of his last four starts, and he is much worse on the road. Take the Phillies to get the sweep.

SAN FRANCISCO @ MILWAUKEE | 08/08 | 2:10 PM EDT
MILWAUKEE -115
ANALYSIS: The Brewers were able to come back down 5-2 in the 10th yesterday and they would have won it in the ninth if it hadn’t been for a misplay in the outfield. Brett Anderson has been very good lately and the Giants struggle against left handed pitching. Johnny Cueto has been much worse on the road this season, take the Brewers to win the series.

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.
