<< Gotta, I don't know Hockey, I do know the NFL. There is enough variation in the NFL that from year to year it is generally not worth it to pay for any picks no matter how much they cost. Reasons?
1. Good picks are available for free on the net, but it takes research. >>
Translation: those who DEMAND that a tout provide documentation and prove how to win with his picks, don't demand the same thing of the "good, free picks on the net" (which they'll point out AFTER THE FACT).
To the toutbashers, I've always said this: tell me NOW, how to use the internet's free picks and make money.
I've yet to see anyone come up with anything even close to a winning method doing this.
