What is your betting strategy?
J.R. Stevens employs a strategy that is designed to reduce risk while increasing return potential and IT WORKS! For 20 years he has generated significant profits for his customers and few, if any, can match his results. During his time in the industry many services have tried to implement similar strategies but none are as successful as his.
J.R.'s 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 his 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
Britney DeLuca reduces risk by focusing on small favorites, small underdogs and totals. For nearly 10 years she, too, has generated significant profits for her customers and consistently ranks in the Top 10 of all sports categories and time periods. Ms. DeLuca uses a flat-betting system which also aides in reducing overall risk.
Arian Bhardi reduces risk by focusing on the best opportunities inside the most profitable leagues. For over 7 years, more than 3 as a Professional, he has also generated significant profits for his customers and has been internationally recognized for his performance. Like Ms. DeLuca, Mr. Bhardi also uses a flat-betting system to aide in reducing overall risk.
What kind of rating system do you use for your picks?
Our Experts only issue the highest-rated picks daily and nothing more. All picks can be played with the highest level of confidence but each day our Experts also designate one pick as the "strongest of the strong". These "Top Plays of the Day" have become some of the most highly sought after picks in the industry because they hit at the highest rate.
J.R. Stevens 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
- VIP Pick
Britney DeLuca Picks are designated as follows (highest-to-lowest):
- All-Star Banger Play of the Year
- All-Star Banger Play

Are your Picks documented?
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 reviewed and 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 the respective advisors "results" page you wish to view.
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
How are your rankings determined?
We have compiled a list of sports monitors 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. Since our results always represent 100% of our picks issued to clients we must assume picks entered by handicappers at sports monitors represents 100% of their picks issued to clients.
Why don’t you use third party monitoring sites?
During our career we have used many monitoring sites and enjoyed much success during our time with 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
The sad and unfortunate truth is sports monitors use "monitoring" as a creatvie way to sell picks. However, this creates a major conflict of interest and can take away their ability to remain independent and objective. Many so-called sports monitors are owned by Sports Handicappers and are used as ways to profit from selling their competitors picks. Many also use a pay-to-play model where Handicappers become "featured" for a predetermined amount of time in return for large payments. There are two problems with this; 1. the word "featured" is somewhat misleading to the general public and many interpret the word to me "the best" and 2. this is another major conflict of interest because the monitor has a vested interest in keeping those handicappers performance at the top of the rankings. Another potential issue with so-called sports monitors is that few handicappers actually have 100% of their picks monitored by them, making the monitors rankings unreliable.
For reasons stated above Winning Sports Plays took action to bring transparency and integrity to the highest level by having all results independently audited and verified. We also make all picks available for public viewing 20 minutes after each game starts and we show 100% of our picks history and not just the last 50 or 100 Picks like many competitiors.
