Re: Would you consider JK a tout?
I've been fair w you always. I ask every tout this and have yet to receive a reasonable answer. .....If you can make money betting your games, why do you have to sell them?
I would say that if you are a good tout, getting paid for picks is a good way to expand your income. After all, even though you like your picks, sometimes you are going to lose. Having people pay you for picks gives you a cushion to fall back on when you're losing.
Besides, say you re betting $5000 a game and you get on a hot streak. You go from 100 players giving you say $40 for your picks, to 200 players giving you $40 for your picks. If your pick wins again, you collect $5000 for your bet, and $8000 for your clients. Now you get more clients, say 250 players, and you increase your bet to $7500. If it wins, you collect $7500 plus $10,000 from your clients. If you lose, you lose $7750 but collect $10,000 from your clients giving you a $2250 profit for losing.
Very simple mathematics. You win and you get more clients. You lose and your clients still make you a profit. Odds are, even if you lose, the clients will still stick with you thinking you just had a bad day.
