3. What is their guarantee?
4. Does the cost of the service justify your bankroll?
5. Are you doubling your bet just to cover the cost of the service?
6. Money back if they lose is great, but hey you just lost YOUR money at the sportsbook, did you lose too much because you had to bet double or triple your amount to pay for the pick?
7. Are they monitored by an outside source?
8. Do they pay money to be monitored?
9. Are the monitors respected and trusted?
10. Are they in the Las Vegas Hilton NFL Super Contest?
11. If they are not, why the hell are you giving them money when they are not putting up a large amount of money ($1,500) to compete against other Handicapping services?

This list is just the tip of the iceberg. Please do your research before you start betting this season. Research all the information yourself or research the services you are thinking about using. There is information on betting throughout the web, use it to your advantage. After all it is your money.
