JD Sports Online Free Picks Explained Video:

I use many different systems to achieve financial success.  The only sports where you can follow my picks directly and be successful are the NFL, NBA, & MLB.  I have straight up systems for those sports; meaning the picks are not weighted and you can follow them directly and make money from them. That’s right, these picks in the NFL & NBA will earn you a nice return, year after year.  As for MLB, it is an unproven strategy.  I introduced the MLB straight up system in 2011.

Now, for sports like NHL, I will post my picks but I never was able to come up with any straight up angle that would win year after year.

The following is how to read my picks.


30 – Portland Trail Blazers +3

27 – Buffalo / Calgary –135

I gave an example of different types to illustrate the difference.  The first number is the day of the month.  Next is the name of the team, unless it is listed like the NHL example then the play would be Calgary, not Buffalo.

So, in the NBA pick, the play is Portland and in the NHL pick, the play is Calgary.

That is all there is to it.  Follow the picks in NFL & NBA and you will earn some cash.  Now, I might add, that I have only been using a straight up picking strategy  since 2007, so nothing is guaranteed.  Also, I have a percent of return when I stop using a straight up strategy, but I will let you know when that time arrives.  For example, during the 2010 NFL season I went 9-2 and then stopped personally betting straight up, but my other systems kept going.  I would continue to post the NFL picks even though I am not following them straight up, I am using my weighted variables.  Anyway, once all my systems had finished for the NFL, I would then stop posting NFL free picks.  So, if you would have continued to follow my free picks  in the NFL after I stopped personally, your record would have been 23 – 18.    Still a winning season but not as good as if you stopped following when I said I am personally no longer following the straight up system in the NFL.

On the flip side, during the 2010 – 2011 NBA season, I stopped betting my straight up system as it ended with a 10-3 record for the season, however if you continued to follow the picks your record could have been 30-16.  So, naturally the choice is yours, to continue following the picks or not.

* I made a personal error during this NBA that cost me around 5.50%, so my earnings without human error would be 5.50% higher.  Something some people never seem to add in their equations.  I will be giving tips to minimize them.

Best of Luck to us all,
