    What about Macot? A vast majority of his picks are over-bets with maximum stakes in random games because "the league is high-scoring" and his arguments are purely based on statistics. I have checked his balance since he started this over-bet strategy and he's clearly losing in the long run, so it seems illogical to continue.

    Furthermore, he also posts many correct score bets with high odds in an obvious and desperate attempt to make a quick profit. Does anyone really believe he places those bets himself?

    Today we have one over bet, one 2-4 correct score ("for fun" according to Macot himself) and one 0-4 correct score bet ("because 0-5 wasn't available").

    Macot might enjoy himself trying out different strategies to increase his balance without risking any of his own money, but some of us take this betting thing a bit more seriously and we visit websites like BA for quality information. If BA wants to maintain a good reputation in the betting industry, they have to do something about unprofessional behaviour like this from approved frontpage tipsters.
    I agree with your post and you have many good points. Although I would judge him after few thousand bets after this strategy and if I remember correctly he is not even close now. IMO if this page wants to improve or even stay as it is it has to go through massive changes. I do not see this happening though and I can see many(informative & profitable) guys leaving this page soon. And no, it´s not about changes in personal lives. It´s about BA living in the past.

      I do also agree with you totally, manuel86. Macot is a shadow of himself nowadays, just like BA itself. He used to be caring for his picks and was very successful some years ago, but now all he does is to choose a vast of games depending on 'only' statistics and feelings and if I'm not mistaken he still runs a paid service (used to be Doctorbet or something different now, maybe he changes the name of his service once a while to clear his negative stats?).

      And Macot is not the only one, such a pity.

        Well...you can change the page layout as much as you want, but when push comes to shove, websites like this will never be better than the combined sum of the contributors.
        When the site started ages ago, year 2000, the mood among people was different. People wanted to contribute.
        Nowadays people keep info more to themselves, and it is hard to find people with a genuine wish to contribute for the benefit of greater good.

        But once in a while, some new tipsters show up with good stats, and good picks. The hard thing is to find them, the second hardest is to get them to write for a betting website for the benefit of a betting community.

          Well some years ago I was posting picks to the main page. One day I just could not log in.
          No post, no message: why when what. So I think it was pretty mauch called on (mood of today)

          imo it was a shitty job by you or whoever. And in the long run you got back what you put in.
          It's easy to be Hard and Hard to be Smart.
          For instance, did you know it is technically illegal to own more than six vibrators in Texas? It's true.

            So if you were a tipster, and then suddenly was removed, must have been due to inactivity.
            If it was wrong, I offer my apologies.

            I am going to do a cleanup of inactive tipsters very soon, as it is no use having people listed as tipsters when their last login is 8 months ago....

            If you want to be tipster, send me an email on tipsters@bettingadvice.com and I will happy accomodate you again.

              can somebody please change following bet into a winner:

              http://bettingadvice.com/pick/nba/bu...valiers/113218

              1X2 DRAW doenst exist for 90% of books in NBA like at Pinnacle and I only choose this term, because the correct term MONEYLINE isnt available. That bet is a ML bet and should be graded after Overtime result. thanks

                    This game finished with the full time result of 17-28, which is 45 points total. The pick was under 46.5, so it was a winner. But, it had been graded as a loss, can somebody correct that please?

                    Thanks in advance.
