ATLANTA @ N.Y. METS | 07/29 | 12:10 PM EDT
N.Y. METS -125
ANALYSIS: Mets starter Taijuan Walker was a revelation in the first half and an All-Star but has imploded in two second-half starts. However, the Mets say they have found the issue with his fastball regarding mechanics, etc. Walker has been very good at home this year (4-1, 2.68 ERA) and vs. the Braves (eight scoreless innings, three hits). Really the only Atlanta batter with much career success off him is Joc Pederson. The Braves runline would be tempting if it wasn't such a big price (-180).

BALTIMORE @ DETROIT | 07/29 | 7:10 PM EDT
DETROIT -153
ANALYSIS: The Tigers have been one of the most profitable teams in the league this season and you can see why after winning two straight in Minnesota at +170 and +120. They head home now where they are much better and face an Orioles team that is much worse on the road. Casey Mize won't go dep into the game but hell give four solid innings and he should be able to get the lead for a Tigers team who scored 17 runs yesterday without a home run. Take the Tigers at home.

WASHINGTON @ PHILADELPHIA | 07/29 | 12:05 PM EDT
PHILADELPHIA -153
ANALYSIS: The Nats have COVID going around their clubhouse and now they have to play a doubleheader thin. They face Zack Wheeler who has been the Phillies best pitcher all season. However, the Phillies are much better at home and Scherzer has been worrying about where to veto his no trade clause too instead of focusing on his next outing. Never thought Id ever pick against Scherzer as this big of an underdog but if you look at the Nats lineup youll see why.

CHI. WHITE SOX @ KANSAS CITY | 07/29 | 2:10 PM EDT
KANSAS CITY +1.5
ANALYSIS: Simply taking a shot on Royals RL here at even money because the White Sox are sitting Tim Anderson, Jose Abreu and Eloy Jimenez due to rest/injury/the fact it's like 100 degrees in Kansas City. Royals pitcher Carlos Hernandez isn't very good but is facing a very weak lineup. Perhaps that it's so hot limits how long Sox Cy Young contender Carlos Rodon (8-4, 2.24) is out there. Also: top setup man Michael Kopech and closer Liam Hendriks are both unavailable.

CINCINNATI @ CHI. CUBS | 07/29 | 2:20 PM EDT
CINCINNATI -121
ANALYSIS: The Cubs are resting both Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo -- maybe it's just because of a day game after a night game, but it also could mean both are about to be traded. Frankly, it would be a shock if Bryant isn't dealt by tomorrow's deadline. With those two out, we'll back the Reds behind resurgent pitcher Luis Castillo. He was awful the first two months but had a 1.71 ERA in June and has the exact same 1.71 ERA this month. Chicago's Alec Mills has a 4.71 ERA in day games. The Cubs are 1-10 in their last 11 vs. a team with a winning record.

N.Y. YANKEES @ TAMPA BAY | 07/29 | 1:10 PM EDT
N.Y. YANKEES -125
ANALYSIS: The Yankees have shown some life, winning seven of their last 10 games to pull within 2.5 games of the last wild card slot. The Rays have lost three straight and look to avoid the sweep. That'll be a daunting task with Gerrit Cole starting, even though the Yankees are only 10-10 with him on the mound. (Also, a Cole bettor is down 10.4 units.) They’ve also lost three of Cole’s last four starts against the Rays. This bet is mostly against Tampa Bay starter Luis Patino, who has allowed 15 runs over his last three starts. Yankees to win.

L.A. DODGERS @ SAN FRANCISCO | 07/29 | 3:45 PM EDT
OVER 8.5
ANALYSIS: It’s going to be a beautiful day in San Francisco, with the wind expected to be blowing out slightly at nine miles per hour. These two starters should help get this game get Over the total. Los Angeles LHP David Price will get four or five innings of work before the bullpen takes over, but the Dodgers have lost his last four starts. The Giants also have lost RHP Johnny Cueto’s last four outings. Despite the fact both lineups are hitting poorly, the Over is the top play.

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.
