WAUCHULA, Fla., Aug. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The internet agrees on one thing: that Bob Akmens' BASports.com is the world's best sports handicapper.
About.com (owned by The New York Times) has reviewed BASports.com and has given it the finest review any sports service has ever received, telling the world that this is the best handicapper on earth:
And BASports.com continues to prove that true. SportsWatch Monitor in Las Vegas, tracking results since the 1980s, currently has 150 sports services participating in their handicapping contests. BASports.com tops all 150 services as the most profitable service for all of 2016 by a very wide margin, with 62% more profit won than the 2nd-place service. And BASports.com is also #1 in most profit won for the entire MLB baseball season.
In the decades BASports.com has been in business as America's most profitable sports service, they have a record second to none. They have finished #1 in 328 different categories of national handicapping contests, by far more than anyone else. Their most recent contest win was #1 in the full Arena Football season.
And they have gotten off to a spectacular 17-2 start in the Canadian Football League. Football handicapping is football handicapping, whether it be NCAA, NFL, CFL or AFL. So they look forward to another fast start to this year's NFL where they started at 5-0 last year.
All of which explains another unique accomplishment. A company is only as good as their customers say they are. When an internet search is done for "who is the world's best sports handicapper?," one sports service shows up at the top of every list: BASports.com. Microsoft's Bing (also used by Yahoo search and others) lists BASports.com as #1 in this search out of more than 100 million hits. Google also lists BASports.com as the best sports service in the world out of millions of hits. Nothing could give greater proof of their success than this.
Bob Akmens and his BASports.com enter this 2016-17 college & NFL football season as the only sports service to ever win 70% in both college football & the NFL in a national handicapping contest in the same year.
For those who handicap football for a living, for the past 29 years there has been one contest everyone wants to win: Ruth Glasgow's The Sports Monitor Combined Football Contest. Each year, the top 150 or so sports services (out of the thousands out there) put their reputations on the line and go for the gold, seeking the title of "who is the best football handicapper?"
The results, with one exception, have been that the winner of this major contest has always won by less than a 4% margin with the average win by less than 1%. That is, until BASports.com turned the handicapping world upside down. During the 2012-13 football season, BASports.com won The Sports Monitor College Football Contest by a record-shattering 9.2%, more than double the biggest winning margin ever, and scored 73.47% winners for the season, sweeping every category of this important contest.
During that same football season, BASports.com won 70.8% in The Sports Monitor NFL Contest and finished #1 in the Most Net Profit Won category.
In the process, BASports.com became the very first sports service ever to finish with more than 70% winners in both college & NFL football in the same year. Never before had this been done by anyone in the 50+ year history of sports service handicapping.
BASports.com's 72.16% football winning record in the undisputed #1 football contest for sports services, The Sports Monitor's Combined Football Contest ("the ultimate rank standing," as TSM puts it) destroyed all previous records. The second-place service (out of 125 services) had a 63% record. BASports.com's 9% winning margin goes down in history as the greatest single football handicapping season ever documented in a national contest.
BASports.com handicaps every major sport in the world using sophisticated computer models. They invite everyone who truly loves football to come visit them at BASports.com and experience a football season unlike any they have ever seen.
