3 FAQs for Sports Handicappers
"Are you like Matthew McConaughey in that movie?"
That's the question I get asked more than any other when people find out that I make my living as a professional sports handicapper. "That movie" is Two For The Money, an overdramatized and fictional depiction of life as a capper. People immediately ask me if I'm like the main character from the flick, John Anthony, and for the sake of simplicity I usually smile politely and nod because I know that the odds are they have no idea what it really means to live your life on the edge of Fate. But the sneaky truth of the matter is that while my profession may be off the beaten path I would have to say that my life is really nothing like the one portrayed by the slimy touts in the film. For one, I hate to say that he had a much sweeter ride than I do! Beyond that, I live in the suburbs. I have a wife and we're expecting our first child. I like a good dinner, an engaging movie, and a nice day on the lake. In all, I'm a pretty regular guy. I just happen to know more about Horizon League basketball than most people know about their own mother.
But I don't expect the average gambler to really know what goes into being a professional handicapper and I don't expect everyone that visits our site or uses our service to have a full knowledge of how everything works in Mug the Bookie. Consequently, we get dozens of e-mails each week from people asking us all kinds of stuff about what we do and how we do it. So what I've done here is taken the five of the questions that we get the most and tried to answer them as simply as I can to make things easier for you.
Because, after all, that's really the crux of what we do here.
We make things easier.
