PHOENIX @ L.A. CLIPPERS | 06/24 | 9:00 PM EDT
PHOENIX -1
ANALYSIS: Chris Paul apparently will be back for Phoenix and Kawhi Leonard for sure will not be for Los Angeles. I also wonder if the way Game 2 ended effectively took all the wind out of the Clippers' sails, so to speak. The Suns are on a nine-game winning streak (8-1 ATS -- people ask why sometimes I take the moneyline; the Suns winning Game 2 by just one point and not covering is why) and they aren't running the table through the Finals, but with Paul back I'll take them here. Perhaps the Clips get a token win in Game 4 to avoid a sweep.

CLEVELAND @ MINNESOTA | 06/24 | 8:10 PM EDT
MINNESOTA -160
ANALYSIS: I'm willing to lay this price behind Jose Berrios, as the Twins have won his last seven starts. Minnesota has won five of six overall and gets to face the Indians' J.C. Mejia. He was lit up in his last start, allowing six runs and seven hits over five innings at Pittsburgh. He sports a 9.31 road ERA. Look for Cleveland to drop its seventh straight at Minnesota.

VEGAS @ MONTREAL | 06/24 | 8:00 PM EDT
VEGAS -145
ANALYSIS: The Golden Knights have a +101 shot differential while the Montreal Canadiens have a -30 shot differential this postseason. Few NHL teams make the Stanley Cup Finals when allowing more goals (165) than goals scored (158) during the regular season. On the flip side, Vegas scored 190 and allowed 122. The Golden Knights have won the face-off battle in three straight and already won in Montreal. Las Vegas is 13-4 when playing with one day rest off a loss. Montreal is 10-14 when playing with one day of rest off a win.

CLEVELAND @ MINNESOTA | 06/24 | 8:10 PM EDT
OVER 9
ANALYSIS: The Twins are 8-0 OU (+2.88 ppg) at home after a game in which they scored in at most two separate innings and 7-0 OU (+4.64 rpg) behind Jose Berrios as a home -140 or steeper favorite when they won his last two starts. The Indians are 8-0 OU (+3.94 rpg) off a road game in which they scored more runs off the bullpen than they did off the starter and 10-0 OU (+4.55 rpg) in the first game of a series with rest on the road after a game in which they scored in two separate inning at most.

PITTSBURGH @ ST. LOUIS | 06/24 | 8:15 PM EDT
ST. LOUIS -145
ANALYSIS: The Cardinals are 11-0 as a -140 or steeper in the first game of a series with no rest after a loss as a road favorite in which they held the lead. The Pirates are 0-13 as an underdog behind Chad Kuhl when he went more than five innings and gave up fewer than six hits in his last start, losing by an average of 4.00 runs per game.

OAKLAND @ TEXAS | 06/24 | 2:05 PM EDT
OAKLAND -140
ANALYSIS: The Rangers are 0-20 as an underdog of +110 or better when they lost by one run in their starter’s last start and it is before the All-Star break. Texas has lost these 10 games by an average of 3.83 runs. The Athletics, on the other hand, are a reliable 14-0 behind Chris Bassitt as a -140 or steeper favorite when they scored first in his last start.

CHI. CUBS @ L.A. DODGERS | 06/24 | 10:10 PM EDT
CHI. CUBS +199
ANALYSIS: The Cubs are 5-0 on the road when they blew a lead in their starter's last start and lost, 4-0 as a +170 or better underdog off a home game in which they allowed six or fewer hits and 9-0 in the first game of a series with rest after a wins as a home favorite in which they never trailed. The Dodgers are 0-5 as a -150 or steeper favorite off a game as an underdog in which they allowed five-plus walks and 0-3 as a -200 or steeper favorite behind Walker Buehler when he threw 100-plus pitches in his last start.

CLEVELAND @ MINNESOTA | 06/24 | 8:10 PM EDT
CLEVELAND +162
ANALYSIS: The Indians are 6-0 as an underdog after a game in which their bullpen allowed multiple runs and 8-0 in the first game of a series with rest after playing as a road underdog when their opponent's starting pitcher has same-season revenge. The Twins are 0-5 as a home favorite behind Jose Berrios when they scored more than six runs in his last start, losing every game by multiple runs. Also, Minnesota is 0-8 in the first game of a home series with rest after a game as a home favorite in which they used five-plus pitchers.

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.
