Here's What We're About
///

WE'VE BEEN RIGHT HERE SINCE 1997! If you're a full time sports bettor or successful part-timer you can profit instantly from this site, OR if you're a recreational bettor or beginner we can cut years from your learning time & help you earn while you learn...Here's how:

HERE'S WHAT WE OFFER: First, notice we allow no banner ads from sportbooks on this site. We do not participate in bettors' losses nor are we financially tied to any sportbook. Our only income is from helping you win.

You can profit right away from the articles in the center column, even if you're already a seasoned pro! These articles promise ways to boost your profits, starting today. If you're a part-time bettor these articles might be the most profitable reading you've done in years. In many ways they define the difference between real pros and the countless 'claim-to-be's' that stalk the Internet. The experts here are among the most respected in the business. 

In the column at far right we offer 'how-to' books & informational materials guaranteed to sharpen your handicapping skills and boost your profit!

...But if you're already a successful player, consider getting our Professional Gambler Newsletter. You'll get our emailed analyses & picks every day. You can use our picks 'as is' or compare them to your own forecasts. (You can monitor our picks at our Track Us page. All plays are posted as soon as games begin.)

 PLEASE DON'T CONFUSE US WITH A TOUT SERVICE!   If you are looking for 70%-80% winners you're in the wrong place. Experts here are genuine  pros. If you're not sure of the differences between real pros and 'claim-to-be's' please read the articles at right. We do NOT offer a telephone service, we do NOT telemarket. We do NOT reveal customers' identities to anyone for any reason. Your privacy is important to us. We do NOT have 'step-up' prices, or 'inner circles'. The cost of our newsletter works out to less than $2 per pick,  often including detailed explanations of how and why we arrived at our conclusions!

OUR CREDENTIALS: J.R. Miller is the man in charge of this website. J. R. was  interviewed by the  NEW  YORK TIMES as a top pro sports bettor, (Business Section, November 9, 1997). He was named by the DAILY SPREAD as "the best all-'round sports handicapper on the planet," and  selected to Las Vegas' WALL OF FAME for his contributions to sports betting knowledge. His book, How Professional Gamblers Beat the Pro Football Pointspread, is the only book of its kind recommended to libraries as "core reading material" by Jack Short, past president, American Library Trustee Association. Miller has been featured on radio & television, in newspapers & magazines. His credentials and references are further detailed at our page, Who the Hell is J.R. Miller? and be sure to check our Endorsements & Testimonials.
