Welcome to toutbuster.com
I am not going to waste anytime trying to make a sales pitch like all the touts (sports tipsters/services who charge for their picks). I will get straight to the point. I got into sports betting about 10 years ago and my first 7 years were losing years. During the first 5 years I made my own picks and followed some tipsters on message boards--finished each of those 5 years in the negative or close to par. Then I realized that even If I managed to pick/find more winners than losers, it is still hard to make profit because of the psychology of money management. This is when I decided to join sports handicapping services to simply follow their advice so that I don\'t have to let my psychology affect anything. I spent the next 2 years trying numerous sports services--each of those 2 years were huge negatives--I lost more during those 2 years than what I lost in the first 5 years combined. During my first 5 years, the biggest bet I ever placed was $250. Then the next 2 years when I was trying out different sports services, I placed wagers ranging from $50 to $500.
The working formula...
Psychology of a gambler (be it handicapping a game to pick the winning side or deciding on how much to bet) almost always work against him. Nearly 2 years after using many sports services, I realized that the above fact is true for all sports services as well because most of them bet on their picks. Even if they don\'t bet on their picks, they still have the same pressure and mentality as the gamblers because they get paid to make their selections. They pick loser after loser causing you to lose money and when they pick more winners than losers, they would still lose money because of the staking psychology. When I made the above realization it was already the beginning of 2006 and that was when the tide turned in favor of me.
By the fall of 2006 I have successfully mastered the art of when to fade and when to follow a sports service. There are hundreds of services out there, that means a lot picks. Key is to study them all and make a wise decision and play them with strict discipline. I have 3 rules that I strictly follow. 1. Never bet more than $1000 (I use only 4 bet sizes: $250, $500, $750, $1000. Majority of the bets are for $500.) 2. Never bet more than three games on a given day. 3. Don\'t break rules one and two.
I have received many emails regarding rule one considering the success I have had in the past two years. They always ask, why don\'t I move to Vegas and do this full time betting a lot more etc. If I do that, I know for sure that the psychology that I was talking about earlier would come into play causing destruction. Sometimes, I myself get the temptation to bet large amount, but I refuse to break my rules. When you involve too much money, you involve too much emotion and that my friend will have a big negative effect on your betting related decisions.
The birth of toutbuster.com...
Until this year I never thought that I would sell my bets. 2006 was my first winning year and since then I am on a roll. During my success I shared my bets with some friends and co-workers. The word of mouth spread and it slowly caught on. By the middle of 2007 baseball season, I had about 20 people (mostly friends, co-workers and relatives) receiving my picks daily by email. By the start of 2007 NFL season the list tripled, now there were lot of people that I don\'t even know such as friends of co-workers, friends, relatives etc. On April Fools Day of 2008, from a suggestion of a good friend, I sent out an April Fools email to everyone on the list saying that they must pay $500/week if they want to continue receiving my picks. Most of them got the joke, but 7 people on the list took up my offer not knowing that it was a joke--They were ready to pay $500/week to have me send them my bets daily. And that was when I came up with the idea of charging for my emails. I got the nickname Tout Buster from friends in 2007 and I decided to go by that name since the domain was available! Toutbuster.com was launched on June 1, 2008. I have had many winning weeks since 2006 but there is no point in showing off what wasn\'t here. Therefore, in the records page you will see only the results since the launch of this website--this way, as a subscriber, you can see that the results and archives are accurate.
I get many emails regarding the psychology and pressure that I was talking about earlier--people ask if I could continue my success with the added pressure of people paying me. Well, there is no pressure for me. I am not making picks to sell. People pay me to send them daily email with my bets. I do not guarantee anything. Those who want my emails with my bets always pay the subscription cost regardless of how the bets perform.
Psychology and pressure that I was talking about earlier was for sports services who make picks to sell--they always sell their picks with guarantees such as free weeks if they don\'t maintain certain success rate or units in profit. When you see such guarantees, you can be sure that they will eventually lose your bankroll because they will try too hard to avoid giving free weeks.
Thanks for reading. May the winnings be yours!
