CRsportsBet and BetMayor Saga

Since I have a sports betting account with, I was obviously concerned when I was told by Jeff about a 60 day payouts delay due to BetMayor being bought by a company in Panama called Media-Tech, Inc.  Since I only have about $200 in my account, I wasn't too worried since I can afford a loss but still, no one likes to lose money.

Today, Kennedy whom I have known for about 5 years and is actually the one that introduced me to BetMayor, called me.  He basically told me that he now works for  He told me that he left BetMayor because he was not certain about their future.

He said he felt responsible to his players because he recommended them to BetMayor and since they are currently in a financial crisis, he wanted to offer me a deal that his CrsportsBet allowed him to make.  I would get an account with CRsportsBet with my current BetMayor balance in it for free and I would just have to roll it over 10 times.

Obviously, I took him up on his offer since Kennedy has never steered me wrong and I never say no to free money. 

After I had signed up with CRsportsBet and gotten my money in my account, I decided to do a bit of research about the book since I never heard of them.

Well, they are a new book for sure since there is not a lot about them.  I did run into an interested article by SportsbookSOS where the CEO of CRsportsBet talks about whether or not they have a relationship with BetMayor or not.  Their CEO, James Chu pretty much says that they do not and that they have been around since 2013 as a private sportsbook and became open to the public this year.

Click on the link to read the CRsportsBet interview

In any case, I'll keep you guys posted when I finish my rollover and ask for a payout.  Since they are a new book, I would suggest to anyone who is thinking about getting their NBA 100% cash bonus to only send $100-$300 to start with since they are a recreational sportsbook.

Super Bowl XLIX Betting - Catching the Early Line

Super Bowl XLIX is here which is an exciting time of the year as we get to see the best NFL teams of the season go head to head for the title but at the same time, it means that the NFL season is over.

This year's Las Vegas early line was a definite screw up on their part as most books had the Seattle Seahawks as the clear favorite giving them a spread of -2 to -3.

Once I saw that I put some big money on the Patriots for several reasons:

  1. Historically, its pretty rare for an NFL team to win back-to-back SuperBowl.  The last one took place 10 years ago with the Patriots.
  2. Russell Wilson of the Seahawks, was struggling during the Playoffs and unless he can get it together by SuperBowl time, the Patriots will take it.
  3.  The Patriots are in tip top shape and ready to win as seen last Sunday when they destroyed the Broncos 45-7
  4. Sherman has an injured arm
  5. The Patriots have Tom Brady!

Last night, I checked the lines and I saw that every major book out there had changed their likes to PK and then switched to a line that favored the Patriots running from 2-5 points.

Here are some of the Super Bowl Betting Odds so far(just keep in mind that the odds will change a lot until Super Bowl time!)

Sportsbook  Team Spread   Total   Money Line
1Vice Patriots     -2.5 -105      o49 -105        -150

Seahawks       2.5 -105      u49 -105    +130
BetOnline Patriots     -1 -110      o48 -110        -116

Seahawks      +1 -110      u48 -110    +104

Beware of Jeff Hamstra and his Sports Handicapping Service

Streaksmarts Review - A Fraud and a Rip Off

A month ago a friend of mine purchased a month's worth of picks from this website, and for the low price of $50.  He was a bit skeptical because lets be honest, more sports handicappers online are not very good and you will be lucky if you can find someone that has a win percentage over 55%.

Since it was cheap, he went ahead and bought it on the off chance that this guy might be for real.

He was wrong as Jeff Hamstra the owner of the website was full of it.  My buddy used all of his picks on a weekly basis and he ended up with the biggest losing streak he has ever experienced losing a total of $3,500  for using his picks.

The guy had an average win of 36.43%!!!!  How in the world can he call himself a handicapper.  Most people just by guessing at random can get a higher percentage than that.

So as stated on his website, he asked for his money back.

The answer was that he would never see his money back and that it's just tough luck that he has a bad month.

The moral of the story is do a search before you decided to buy picks from sports handicappers.

So to end this review of Streaksmarts and Jeff Hamstra, stay away from that guy and his so call handicapping service.

Here is his information so you know that this is the person to stay away from:

NFL Week 5 Picks

Alright people, it's time for my NFL Week 5 Football picks and I hope everyone is ready to make some money this week!

Detroit Lions Will Destroy the Buffalo Bills

This year, the Lions have a definitively better team then the Bills and Detroit's defense is second in the league against the pass, allowing 186.5 yards per game

Predicted Score: Detroit 28 Buffalo 21 so take Detroit at -7.5

Atlanta Falcons will take the Spread Against the NY Giants

I'm going on a limb on this one and it will make or break my reputation but even though Atlanta has had a bad streak on the road and are short handed with 3 starters on the injured list, the NY Giants will not cover the spread.

Predicted Score: Giants 24 Atlanta 21 so take Atlanta at +5.5

On another note, right now is the time to shop around for your backup sportsbook as all of the sportsbook right now are fighting to get you to play with them!  Right now, I've been doing a bit of shopping around on the internet and have found some great sportsbook promotions ranging from 50% to even 300% bonuses from some excellent sportsbook.

My personal recommendation right now is to go open a sports betting account at 1Vice since they are currently offering up to 300% bonus if you deposit $800 or more.  For some it may be too much but its not a problem because you can still get a 200% bonus with a $500 or more deposit.

If you are looking for a Cash Bonus, open an account with BetMayor as they are offering up to 100% CASH Bonus!!!

Betmayor Sportsbook Review

For those of you out there who have just one sports betting account.

You probably know that once your name is out there, you become the target of every other sportsbook out there.
Yes, its true, your name get's sold around by employees of the companies and you become a gambling commodity.

So it was no surprise when I received an email asking me to join the sportsbook.

Since I had just gotten a payment and am always on the lookout for decent bonuses, I thought I would look into it.

Betmayor appears to be a fairly new book as I did a search online for betmayor review and only found a few entries about it ranging from good to be careful.

Since they are currently offering 100% cash bonus, I thought I would give it a try.  I opened an account and within minutes someone from their sales department called me.  I told them I was interested in depositing to get the 100% cash bonus.

He wanted me to deposit $500 to get it.  I ended up depositing $300 to get it with a 10x rollover.

So far so good.  I sent them the deposit and started betting right away.  After a couple of weeks, I had met the rollover and had doubled my money.

Now came the time to get a true feel of this book.  I requested a $500 payout...

The process was fairly smooth and they told me that I would receive my payout within 48 hours.  Two day passed and nothing...

I was starting to sweat a bit but since I had requested the payout around 4pm ET, I figured that it wasn't going to get processed until the next day.

Day 3 arrived and as I was beginning to think I got ripped off, I received an email with payout info.  What a relief!

Right now, my balance with them is currently a bit over $400 and since I have been winning with them, I am wondering if they will close my account like many small books do when a winner signs up with them.  I will keep you all posted when I ask for my next payout.

Would I recommend them to a friend?  I would but only to my friends that are weekend bettors since I do not yet have a good grasp on whether this company will stick around for the long run or not.
