Let’s make it simple and say that a baseball handicapper is a person that analyzes two baseball teams and attempt to picks the winner.. This formula must be battle tested. For effectivebaseball handicappingyou need to follow a formula. You just start analyzing ball games and select your winners. They must be up to date with all trades, injuries, trends and current statistics. The only way to test a formula is to use through an entire baseball season. Then there are the side variable such as weather conditions, disputes among the players sand mental state of the players. Baseball season is very long and there are many ups and downs for every team. The only way to fully grade a handicappers picks is over the entire season.
Just what is abaseball handicapper? According to Wikipedia: Baseball Handicapping is the practice of assigning advantage through scoring compensation or other advantage given to different contestants to equalize the chances of winning. My feelings on this are not one individual can be giving that title. There is no license or certification required. There is no government rating nor is there any real tracking system. A good handicapper will take all this information and plug into their handicapping formula.
Now you are probably reading this article because you want to know who is best. Anyone can create a formula and start using it, but it has to be tested. Part of being a good handicapper is promoting yourself as one. Be consistent with your bets and use proper money management and you will the best baseball handicapper.
The fact is anyone can claim to be good atbaseball handicapping. Many get lucky but luck only happens occasional. A handicapper that just picks games without close examination is one that I would avoid. Luck has a lot to do with it. You might have a nice run for a week, start thinking you have the best system in the world then lose the next 10 games. Don’t confuse being lucky for being good.
The bestbaseball handicappersin one who thoroughly follows the game, uses a proven system along with all those miscellaneous variables to determine their selections. I would define the best baseball handicapper a one who is truly knowledgeable on the sports. Remember to distinguish the difference between just lucky and picking the right side. I am a true believe that anyone can be the best baseball handicapper if they so desire. It is better to be lucky than be good, right. Follow the game, use a proven baseball betting formula, there are many available. That is the easy part just about all handicappers claim to be the best.
Now a proven winning formula is mandatory. Baseball handicapping is not all based on skill
