PayPal is our preferred method of payment. It is the safest and most secure way to complete an online transaction for both the customer and merchant. You DO NOT need to be a PayPal member or need to sign up for a PayPal account to pay through PayPal. We also accept all major credit/debit cards and prepaid cards. We DO NOT accept cash, bank wires or Western Union! If cash is your preferred method then please visit your local supermarket or pharmacy to purchase a prepaid debit card.⇧ Back to Index WHY ARE YOUR PRICES SO CHEAP AND SHOULD I BE SKEPTICAL?
We pride ourselves on having some of the LOWEST prices in the business! You should be skeptical of those who charge hundreds, even thousands more than us for inferior service! The reason why we are able to keep our prices so low is because we actually play our own picks, unlike the other guys who charge hundreds more, and this helps us to offset our operating costs. Those savings we then pass down to our loyal customers!⇧ Back to Index WHY DO YOU CHARGE AT ALL?
We recognize we live in a world filled with entitlements where people don’t think they should have to pay for anything. This is why industries like music and entertainment struggle so much to stay afloat today! Listen, the bottom line is we run a professional business that helps others succeed. This type of business requires a tremendous amount of time, energy and resources! Therefore, like other industries and businesses, we are entitled to fair compensation for our time and energy. It’s called “Business 101” and “Free Enterprise”. If you can’t see the value in what we do then we are probably not a good fit for each other.⇧ Back to Index DO YOU OFFER ANY GUARANTEES?
YES! All VIP Subscriptions are backed by a guarantee which may entitle you to a refund, credit or additional days of picks on the house. Our guarantees are clearly stated and always honored promptly.⇧ Back to Index WHEN DO YOU EMAIL THE PICKS I PAID FOR?
We email all picks at least 1 hour before the first games start. Picks are also available for online viewing from any device by logging into our website.⇧ Back to Index I DID NOT GET THE EMAIL WITH THE PICKS I PAID FOR, WHAT DO I DO?
First, check your email spam folder! Sometimes your ISP will redirect our communication there inadvertently. Next, make sure you add us to your address book/contacts to improve timely delivery by your ISP. Lastly, if you do not receive picks 1 hour before the games start kindly email us promptly. We can only control the timing of the release of our communication. We are NOT responsible for the timely release of our communication by your ISP! For this reason, you SHOULD NOT rely solely on email! We grant every paying customer web access for added convenience in retrieving your subscription picks. Remember, VIP Members have the option to receive picks-by-text too!⇧ Back to Index AM I ALLOWED TO SHARE YOUR PICKS WITH OTHERS?
ABSOLUTELY NOT! You will get caught! Violators of this policy will have their memberships TERMINATED IMMEDIATELY WITHOUT REFUND — NO EXCEPTIONS! Sharing includes, but is not limited to, emails, newsletters, public forums, blogs, chat rooms, texts and any other method of distribution.⇧ Back to Index DO YOU OFFER FREE TRIAL ACCOUNTS?
YES! You can sign up for a Free Subscription to receive Free Picks, Exclusive Offers, and gain FREE ACCESS to our entire Pick History & Detailed Records section!⇧ Back to Index I AM LOGGED INTO MY ACCOUNT BUT CAN'T SEE MY PICKS! WHY?
This could be as simple as picks not being posted yet. Picks can only be seen on the website once they have been officially released which is guaranteed to be at least one hour before the games start. However, if after this time you still cannot see posted picks please try logging out of your account. Clear your browser cookies and cache, then refresh the page. Once you have cleared out and refreshed your browser log back into your account and try again. If you still can’t view picks kindly email us and someone from our customer service team will help you immediately.⇧ Back to Index WHAT IS YOUR BETTING STRATEGY?
We employ a strategy that is designed to reduce risk while increasing return potential and IT WORKS! For 20 years we have generated significant profits for our customers and few, if any can match our performance. During our time in the industry we have seen many services try to implement similar strategies but none are as successful as us.
Our strategy involves splitting the bet amount for a game between the spread and moneyline in Football and Basketball, the moneyline, runline and/or alternate runline in Baseball, and the moneyline, puckline and/or alternate puckline in Hockey. The total amount played represents 100% for that pick but is split between the two based on our recommendation. This is partly how we reduce risk and increase return potential. For tracking purposes the bet is graded based on the overall outcome of the bet.BET EXAMPLE
SCENARIO 1: Team loses the game by more than 7 points Bet Result: Team +7 loses 1100 and Moneyline +300 loses 500 Bet Profit/Loss: (1,600) Pick Result: LOSS
SCENARIO 2: Team loses the game by less than 7 points but doesn't win the game Bet Result: Team +7 wins 1000 but Moneyline +300 loses 500 Bet Profit/Loss: +500 Pick Result: WIN
SCENARIO 3: Team wins the game Bet Result: Team +7 wins 1000 and Moneyline +300 wins 1500 Bet Profit/Loss: +2,500 Pick Result: WIN
We only issue the highest-rated picks daily and nothing more. These picks may be referred to as "10-star" or "10-unit". Each day we designate one pick as our "Play of the Day/Week/Month/Year" which represents the "strongest of the strong". These "Top Plays of the Day" are our Signature Plays and have become some of the most highly sought after picks in the industry because they hit at the highest rate.
VIP Picks are designated as follows (highest-to-lowest):
- Game of the Year
- Late Breaking Info
- Game of the Month
- Game of the Week
- Play of the Day
- Top Pick
"When a dog player like us issues a fave, you'd better pay attention!"
This is because we have a HUGE success rate when we issue them!⇧ Back to Index AS A VIP MEMBER WHY ARE MY UNIT TOTALS DIFFERENT THAN YOURS?
Your total profit should always be +/- 5% depending on your actual lines/spreads/odds versus ours. This is the part NOBODY CAN CONTROL. Every Sportsbook can vary and the timing of when you open our email and actually place your action can also be dramatically different. Our Pick spreads/odds are current at the time of the release!
A quick note about our results:
- Our results are 100% transparent and easy to follow and verify.
- Picks are tracked using $1,000 as the base amount, which is industry protocol
- The total profit assumes you play every pick we release, and exactly as issued
If your results are dramatically different than ours (on a relative basis) then it simply means:
- You are not playing our picks EXACTLY AS ISSUED AND INTENDED.
- You are not playing all of our picks EXCLUSIVELY and are mixing them with your own and/or someone else's. These are the ONLY reasons there can, and will, be a dramatic difference in your profit and ours!
Our Picks are 100% Transparent - always have been and always will be! All Picks are date/time stamped and can be viewed on our website 20 minutes after the games start. We also provide all records for all sports, showing the date of event, selection made and the win/loss results. We don't just show you the last 10 or 50 picks or just the winners - WE SHOW YOU EVERYTHING! Again, we have nothing to hide! Our results are also audited by an independent 3rd party and, to our knowledge, we are the ONLY company that does this! For a full summary of our Pick History & Detailed Results please visit our results page.⇧ Back to Index HOW ARE YOUR RANKINGS DETERMINED?
We have conducted an extensive search of credible and verifiable sources that track results. We track those sources daily and our results are measured against their reported numbers. Our rankings are then determined by the outcome of the comparison.⇧ Back to Index WHY DON'T YOU USE A 3RD PARTY MONITORING SITE? During our career we have used a few monitoring sites and enjoyed much success at those sites, including many #1 rankings for various sports and/or time periods. However, none served beneficial to us for some of the following reasons:
- Cannot accommodate our bet style
- Pick limitations preventing full transparency
- Lack of business ethics and integrity
- Pay-to-Play structure creating bias to certain handicappers
- Evidence of changing/altering handicapper picks
From time-to-time we may participate in 3rd party contests or enter picks at 3rd party monitoring sites for promotional reasons. However, Pick Results will almost always be different than our actual audited results for various reasons, primarily because they cannot accommodate our bet style. Our audited results can be viewed on the results page of our website.⇧ Back to Index IS YOUR WEBSITE SECURE?
YES! It's simple! Winning Sports Plays will NEVER share or sell your information for any reason! We comply with all FTC CAN-SPAM Act rules.
NO SPAM. NO HASSLE. UNSUBSCRIBE ANYTIME.
Winning Sports Plays is NOT a phone service. BE WARNED — ALL PHONE SERVICES ARE SCAMS – PERIOD!
