WAUCHULA, Fla., Sept. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- As the 2016 college & NFL football seasons begin, Bob Akmens Sports (BASports.com) is ready for a repeat of the record-shattering football season they recently had. The gold-standard of sports service monitors is The Sports Monitor which has tracked handicapper performance since the 1980s. Of the thousands of so-called sports services, only 100-150 will risk exposing their records publicly in contests such as those The Sports Monitor (TSM) runs.
Recent football seasons have begun with about 125 sports services in the TSM contests. Because those services are reputable, it's very hard for one service to truly stand out from the others. Prior to BASports.com's never-seen-before football season, the average victory margin in win-percentage in any TSM football contest was 0.9% (less than a single percent) and the largest victory margin ever was 4%.
Bob Akmens Sports had the greatest football handicapping season ever documented by The Sports Monitor. In college football, they won the TSM contest in multiple categories with 73.47%, more than 9% better than the second-place service. In the NFL, they won 70.83% and were #1 in the most net profit won category.
BASports.com became the very first sports service to ever win over 70% in both college football & the NFL in the same season. This had never been done before in any national football contest.
The ultimate football handicapping contest for a sports service is The Sports Monitor's Combination Football Contest. Bob Akmens Sports won that contest, finishing #1 in every category, and winning 72.16%. Service #2 (out of 125) had 63%. Services 3-125 had 59% or less. BASports.com's 9%+ margin of victory in the most-difficult and most important football handicapping contest for sports services destroyed every record in the books. The biggest win in this top contest had ever been 4%. And BASports.com more than doubled that with 9% better than anyone else.
BASports.com is currently the #1-ranked handicapper in the world by virtue of leading 169 sports services for most net profit won for the entire year at SportsWatch Monitor, a Las Vegas monitoring operation that has been around since the 1980s. Bob Akmens currently has 82% more net profit than the second-place service. And BASports.com has an overall win percentage of about 60% compared to the others leaders who have no more than 53%. They are also ranked #1 for 2016 MLB and have a 22-4 record in CFL Football.
BASports.com has proven themselves to truly be the world's best sports handicappers. But none of this is new to Akmens. About.com (owned by The New York Times) has called Bob Akmens "one of the most respected handicappers in the business," and pays him the ultimate compliment that "no other handicapper can match Akmens in terms of winning."
With 329 #1-finishes in different categories (win %, most net wins, etc.) of documented handicapping contests, Bob Akmens Sports has time and again proven to be the best overall sports handicapper in the world. Which may be why About.com's sports betting expert has also said, "I can count on one hand the number of services that I would give a positive recommendation about to a fellow sports bettor. Bob Akmens Sports would certainly be included in that select group."
That's also why Google & Bing come up with Bob Akmens Sports as the very top hit when you search for "who is the world's best sports handicapper?" You can't rank #1 for a search term like that out of millions of hits unless you have backed that up with great winning performances over the years.
HandicappingReviews.org heaps yet more praise on BASports.com when they say "He claims to be the world's best and most accurate and it would appear that he's got the evidence to back up that lofty claim."
Who could ask for anything more this football season?
