How To Become a Professional Football Handicapper
or a Professional Sports Handicapper
After being in this business for 35 years, the one thing that I hear most often is this statement. I think I
have the ability to be a professional handicapper. How did you become a professional handicapper? Where can I get a
chance to show my skills and how can I get started?
Well, back in 1981 is when I started, I was a young gun with a chip on my shoulder. I thought, dang, I can
pickem' better than they can. Well, I joined a national handicapping monitoring service and soon proved what I had
been saying for years. You can read more right here.
As you can see, I put my money where my mouth was, because at that time in 1981 it would cost me $400 per sport
category just to be monitored. That's $400 in 1981 dollars! This was just to prove you can pickem' better than all
the professional handicappers. Therefore, for football it would cost me $800 (college $400 & pro $400). Again,
this was just to show my handicapping prowess and have my picks monitored. That was great for me, but then I
realized, how do I sell my picks and make some money? I found out very quickly that being a sports service owner
did not only require expert handicapping, but it also entailed running a business. Being a Business Administration
major, that was not the biggest problem for me at that time. The biggest problem was advertising and marketing
expenses and finding a platform where I could be found. Don't forget now, we're talking 1981 and no internet. My
1/4 page ads cost thousands and I would sit by the phone hoping it would ring, so that I would have a chance to
sell my expert football picks. Then maybe, just maybe, I'll be consistent enough to keep winning and maintain a
good customer base. Well, I must've done something right, because I've been doing it for 27 years and we've grown
into one of the most respected sports services in the nation. Since then, I've added 3 more handicappers
specializing in various sports or niches within a sport.
All that is sweet, but what does that have to do with you? Well, here's the deal my friend. If you really want
to take a shot at being a professional handicapper, Gridiron Gold will give you that shot. Here's what we'll do for
potential sports handicappers.
Well, you can see that it's much more than I got when I started!
Not only do you have a chance to prove yourself to the nation and earn money, but you also have a platform to
become an employee of Gridiron Gold (if you're good enough). Best of all, you don't need an expensive merchant
account, website or business expenses. Plus, you get immediate exposure to a large market of players. Heck, when I
started, I had to advertise in magazines and believe me, it was abnormally expensive with no traffic
So, based on my offer, what would you expect to pay for this? What would be a fair price to to show the world
your skills? You must think, it would be nice and very, very fair if I had to pay what you paid to be monitored
back in 1981 (with no inflation). You bet you do, and you have to agree, this is a great offer.

Options: Choose From The Following:
- Web Page Design: We can design a web page for your advertising needs. Your design will have the look and
feel of our website. Same borders, but the body will be your choice. The unique part will be a header design
and body content to your satisfaction. We take care of payments, records, buy buttons, merchant account
transactions. All you do is email your picks and we do the rest. Any sales you produce are sent to
you after the first of each month.
- You may use your own logo and header images. But this does not relief you of the entire web page design as
stated above. If you send us your web page HTML, there will no charge for the web page design, but there will
be a one time charge for setup and linkage of $100. Note: if you use your own web page, the total page
must be your own page. No part of our website design will be part of your web page (including our borders,
design or links).
- Add a full website link: You can add a text link to every page in our website (including our home page).
This is for a link to your web page, from every page in our site. Link Fee = $100 per sport season but now is
included free in setup
- Web Page Administration Fee $50: This fee is charged to cover labor expenses to update your web page for
changes. This is effective only if you're selling your picks after initial web page setup (other than buy
buttons and pick maintenance). For example, changing images weekly, changing names weekly, adding or deleting
original content etc. After setup, if you simply send in picks weekly, there is no charge.
It's as simple as that. All payments must be received for the entire regular season for college or pro football,
college or pro basketball, before any web page design commences. Because of the web design expense this creates for
us, we must ask for all fees in advance. Upon receipt of payment for entry into our handicapping program, we will
set up your web page and send you instructions on how, when, and where to send your picks.
Special Note: This is a non-refundable program, so if we build your page, and you decide later it's not for you,
or you start losing or you don't get many sales, there will be absolutely no refunds issued, so make sure you want
in, before you proceed in the program.
So You Say You Can Pickem? Well, here's your chance, no more excuses. If you're as good as you say you are, you
may be asked to join our handicapping staff for future years.
