But with so many sports betting handicappers out there trying to pitch you their services, it can be hard to navigate it all. Who is good in what sport? How often do they release picks? How do you know which of Covers Experts industry-leading sports betting handicappers is the right one for you?
Well, here are five tips to help you choose the right Covers Expert for you.
Determine the type of bettor you are
Are you the type of bettor who wants to focus on just NFL and college football picks? Or do you want to try your hand at everything across the major sports? Or heck, are you zeroed in on sports like tennis of auto racing? Because we have handicappers that do it all, and ones that are sport-specific. Next, you need to figure out how often you want to bet, and how much you want to wager on a play. Check out our Buy Picks page or individual capper pages to see the frequency in which they release picks and how they use the Star Rating system. How many 10 star picks do they release compared to other stars? Which essentially means how much a capper values a pick. Head over to our Help page for more info on the Star Rating system.
Read our Covers Expert bios
For even more information on each of our handicappers, head over to the all Handicappers page, as well as individual handicapper profile pages where you can find out how long they have been professionally betting on sports, what sort of system they use, and how they rate their picks. There are even some good anecdotes of good betting stories and origins in there. Being able to relate to someone you buy a pick from can go a long way.
Track a Covers Expert’s success with our new leaderboard
Utilize our brand new interactive Leaderboard in order to track how each of our Covers Experts rank over a given period of time and see who is generating the most profit. You may find some cappers are streakier than others, while some are more even keel. So, do you prefer to tail hot streaks, or grind out a profit over the long haul? You can also see which sports the all-sports cappers excel in if you are looking to nail an Expert down for a specific league.
Test out our Free Picks
Our Covers Experts post several free picks each week which can be found on our Free Picks page and our Scores and Matchups pages over at Covers. These are a great way to get a feel for each handicapper’s style without you having to pay a cent. Most of these picks come with analysis, so you’ll be able to figure out if a certain handicapper has an older school fade the public approach, or maybe a newer analytical approach to betting. Or maybe they’re something in between. The point is, you’ll have a much better impression of each handicapper’s betting method without making an investment.
Do they have a social media following?
The way in which we digest our sports betting information has changed drastically over the years with the rise of social media. So, another thing you can do is check out our Covers Experts on places like Twitter and Facebook to see how they are interacting with the sports betting community. Are they releasing more picks and analysis on these platforms? Are they posting radio, podcast, or video appearances? Are they doing something as simple as responding to their followers? And if that’s the case, they probably have a strong following on social media. It’s always a nice feeling to see that a handicapper has the support of the sports betting community.
