My value as an MLB handicapper is the ability to read the market better than 95% of sports bettors. Every sports bettor is going to experience wins and losses. By striking when the odds are at their most favorable point, profits are increased and losses are diminished. Major League Baseball is a long season and it’s extremely important to map out a plan in advance. A fly by the night strategy will not put money in your pocket. My personal betting tendencies are somewhat on the conservative side. I believe that responsible money management is of utmost importance. Certainly, there are times when stepping out is worthwhile, but it’s important to find the right time when the odds are in our favor. The true measure of success is to be able to grind out consistent profits on a long-term basis, and that's what my #1 goal will be this MLB season.

After 20 years of professional sports gambling experience, I am humbled by the opportunity to join Sports Picks Forum and serve a large community of like minded investors. I use the perfect blend of emotional, statistical, technical, and match up analysis to make every play I release to my clients. Major League Baseball is a long, grind it out season which is a roller coaster for most teams and handicappers alike. My long term betting approach fits well with the MLB season and I believe that there will be bad breaks and good luck but you must remain focused on your goal of profiting and sticking to the script. My MLB picks will be based on a 1-5 unit value which determines the strength of the play. All of my MLB picks will be on Moneyline, Runline and Total - no parlays or teasers. We focus only on the games and picks that provide an edge over Vegas. Make sure to follow my picks this season and together we'll navigate the MLB season. -Jonah Black

#3 Timothy Larkin Jr.
Cashin' Tickets

Verified since 3/11/2009

Season:
+$58,065

Timothy Larkin Jr. comes to Cashin Tickets by way of the financial world. With an MBA in Finance from Stanford University, "The Banker" is a formal Investment Strategist that worked on Wall Street. Tim found out first hand how difficult and stressful it is to be a strategist. With a long life ahead of him and a grim economical outlook, eight years ago Tim looked towards the booming business of sports investing. Tim comes from an educated white collar family that grew up off the coast of Oregon. Education always came first in the Larkin household and while Tim never got the opportunity to play organized sports, he was always an avid Bay area sports fan. Tim grew up watching the Oakland Raiders; the A’s and even the 49ers. In later years Tim’s interest began to shift from your average sports fan to a sincere interest in sports investing.

Tim began to dabble in sports investing in his late 20’s. He quickly realized the financial implications of winning. While his families support was not 100%, Tim’s education in finance began to provide him with returns. Tim learned early on how important it was to manage your finances or bankroll in sports betting. Tim’s wealth of knowledge stems from his insane appetite for reading. Tim began to school former college buddies and friends from back home with his success all of which eventually became his first members. Tim was able to develop his money management plan designed to optimize profit and use it to his advantage to feed the growing market of sports gamblers. After successfully showing a profit in eight straight years of sports handicapping, we are pleased with the addition of Timothy Larkin Jr.

Season:
+$57,980
Sports expertise like none other - I've been handicapping for more than a decade and have had my picks documented with Verified Cappers for over 5 years and consistently won top honors at MLBBaseballHandicappers.com. Since joining I have consistently been atop the MLB season leader board in total earnings. Betting on baseball is all about spotting underdogs that are undervalued (or favorites that are over valued). I've got a proven ability to find value in big underdog MLB picks, preaching a philosophy of betting $100 to win $150 on +150 MLB sides that have a 50/50 chance of winning. I believe if you bet MLB game with 50/50 odds at +125 ever day then you will consistently beat the books. MLB baseball can be very profitable, IF you know what to look for and excercise bankroll management. I have a proven method of betting the bases that I don't think can be matched. While I have handicapped all major sports in the past from football, basketball and baseball but try to stay focused on my true love betting on baseball. I have profited from MLB in 7 of the last 9 years and did not finish worse than 58% during this time. I'm happy to now have my picks available at PrecisionPicks.com and always looking for new member's to team up with my winning picks. Let me earn your trust this season and let's team up.

My advice is always to closely monitor the fundamental and statistical analysis when it comes to betting diamond picks. Trends will come and go with sun and the moon but if you can compare the strengths and weaknesses of the opposing teams then you can find a path to profit. MLB betting is all about numbers and simply stated, my stats are better then yours. My life is baseball and I can help you make money betting baseball. Look for my daily MLB selections the evening before the action.

My handicapping experience dates back to 2005 and it has taken me around the world and provided me with opportunity to work with some brilliant minds. I prefer to bet on the diamond due to the length of the season and countless ways to profit if you bet smart. There are certain circumstances throughout the season that many novice bettors fall trap to such as betting on high priced favorites and neglecting the underdogs. Vegas too will get greedy and rely too much on trends which equals opportunity. My ability to spot a trend before it becomes a trend is one of the keys to long term success.

Season:
+$52,060
My experience in MLB handicapping spans more than a decade which included apprenticeships with some of the sharpest minds in sports betting. What started out as a "dream job" has become a reality after devoting years of dedication to my craft. MLB betting is a tremendous opportunity to make money and is often over looked by the casual bettor. NFL and college football can often be more exciting with such short seasons but in MLB there are countless opportunities each day for over seven months. MLB is a game of numbers. There is so much more to the game than just the moneyline, run line or the total line. Like many experience bettors, I establish odds on games I feel show an edge. I use my VD-5 betting system to determine five crucial factors in any particular game such as the amount of runs a team has scored over the past 5 games or how a pitcher throws vs a certain team and his percentage of swing and miss pitches. By factoring in a host of analysis you begin to create an edge over your book that will last an entire season. MLB is an exciting sport and I look forward to sharing my information with you in a winning MLB campaign.

My strategy to help you win more MLB games is to use situational handicapping (home vs away, starting pitching vs starting lineup, etc) along with advanced statistical analysis (offensive, defensive and pitching stats, key numbers for totals, etc). MLB handicapping is about finding the key matchups that offer the most value based upon research and stats offering the best statistical value. I never release a pick when my stats do not support the pick. MLB betting isn't magic it's mathematics. I have compiled 13 years of research to support my model and there are thousands of stats you can use to make your MLB picks on any given series which is overwhelming for the casual bettor. I've enjoyed great success compiling the enormous amounts of information needed to profit and I relish the opportunity to share my advice with my clients. MLB betting isn't magic it's mathematics.

David Lagos Expert Handicapper

Cashin' Tickets

Verified since 3/11/2009

Season:
+$51,465

David Lagos also known as "QuickSilver", a name given to him by Anthony Moretti for his flashy style and complete disregard for the cost of a good time. David Lagos is the son of an insurance salesman from sunny Arizona. David was taught the importance of persuasion through verbal communication from his father’s experience peddling insurance. David found this tool very valuable and was no stranger to the females from an early age. With over 300 days of sunshine per year in Arizona, David was lucky to focus much of his childhood playing baseball and football or any activity that allowed him to soak up the sunshine. Growing up in a household of Arizona Wildcats fans, David envied how athletes were treated and how they were placed on a high pedestal. David’s entire childhood was surrounded by sports and he wanted nothing more than to become a successful athlete.

Upon graduating high school, David accepted an offer to play football for a Division I school in the south. While David was an excellent quarterback in his own right he was more notorious for his desire to party. David was a highly touted football player with a thirst for the good life. David admits that more time was spent on the late night scene rather than on the football field. David ultimately became known as the go to man for any campus celebrations and with this level of fame followed the women. While David never actually fulfilled his dream of becoming a famous athlete, he left the South with a degree in Business Administration and four job offers before he was even awarded his diploma. David’s charismatic and charming personality won him over with many crowds and allowed him the opportunity enter the sports management field. David’s focus and career goal shifted to becoming a sports agent. David’s hard work and determination was not paying off quick enough and he soon began making weekend trips to Las Vegas to place bets on football, basketball and even baseball to help supplement his income and experience the night life in Vegas. It was during a trip to Las Vegas where David was introduced to the art of sports handicapping.

David soon picked up on the amount of money tourists and gamblers alike were losing to the books. David’s competitive nature kicked in and his focus began to shift more towards helping himself and others beat the books. After years of networking, researching and satisfying clients all over the globe, Cashin Tickets is proud to enlist the services of David Lagos, AKA "The Player". David’s desire for flash and cash is what drives him the most and there is no better place in the world to make money than in Las Vegas. A man with such a lifestyle was a born winner.

Don is a grizzled veteran to sports gambling and handicapping world. He broke into the professional sports handicapping ranks in the early 1980's where he earned his nickname as "The Hound." The nickname was given to him by a mentor at the time named Gary Knockton. Gary was one of the great handicappers and professional gamblers of his time and Don gives Gary credit for the majority of his success today.

Do not play the games that are only on TV or bet on your favorite team each week if you are truly serious about making money. Don decided in September 2005 to join forces with Walt "The Fox" Kramer to create one website where two of the best known and successful handicappers in the world can join forces to help the gambler make the same kind of money they enjoy.
