Tony also is a national radio host on Yahoo Sports Radio.    Tony started his business in Lincoln, NE back in 1992 and is now located in Kansas City, MO.  His philosophy is that sports handicapping shouldn’t be exempt from ethical conduct.  George’s full-time firm dedicates itself solely to winning and places expectations high. His first big break came in 1991, when he won a small contest at the Horseshoe in Las Vegas.  He was encouraged to enter by one of the Binion’s, one of Las Vegas’ most famous families.  Soon other players started to inquire about his picks. George began his phone service which was NOT a boiler room.  He then found himself in the top ten of Jack Stewart’s Sportswatch, one of the first handicapper monitoring services. Tony became one of the first handicappers to sell a play on the Internet when he set up online in 1995.  Tony has been or is a contributor to many large gaming portals such as Covers, Boyds Bets, Gambling 911, Rants Sports, Sports Capping, Yahoo Sports, The Sports Network, Pregame, Bang the Book, and Playbook.

Sean Higgs

Sean Higgs has been crushing ‘The Man’ since the early ’90s. If you are trying to beat the sports books with stats, trends, and angles you are not going to have a lot of success if you do not know how to apply them. That is Sean’s specialty. If you follow Sean’s advice by playing his selections you are going to find yourself making a decent second income from gambling.
He doesn’t place bets just because a game is on TV or involves high profile teams. He shoots for value. If you are working full-time, have a family, or have other interests then you can’t possibly put in the time required to win at sports-betting .
Year in, and Year out, ‘Mr. Money’ grinds out a profit. Higgs isn’t in this for the thrill of some big wins, Sean wins consistently throughout the year.


Jim Mack 

Jim Mack, for years best known as his pseudonym, VI Jim, popularized by the well-respected Vegas Insider Football Weekly Tip Sheet, now brings his handicapping talents to Vegas Pro Insider Daily daily through his own unique style and expertise.

Born and raised in an industrial town in the Midwest, Jim personifies the hard work and diligence needed to thrive in the ever changing sports betting world. Having been in the industry for over 15 years now,  Jim boasts a wealth of experience.

However, unlike the others, Jim has spent many years on both sides of the line, both in building and analyzing data to beat the point spread, and in consulting some of the world’s largest bookmakers in BUILDING odds.

Having been on both sides of the betting process, Jim has learned many invaluable secrets of the trade, and what to look for when finding line value. He has first-hand knowledge in how & why lines are moved, how bookmakers try to bait bettors into certain plays, and the mistakes those setting the odds make in over- or under-reacting to teams’ tendencies.

Jim firmly believes in letting the lines play out awhile so it is rare that he will offer early selections, instead choosing to study line moves closely as part of his routine before issuing any opinion. Jim also considers himself a heavy system bettor, and believes that a steady process, combined with the diligent use of time tested beliefs is the only way to enjoy prolonged and prolific success in sports betting. He has demonstrated this type of thinking consistently both in his picks and in the articles he has authored for the VI Tip Sheets.

Prior to joining VI, only Jim’s closest associates have had the privilege of taking advantage of his work.

If you haven’t had the chance to enjoy some of Jim Mack’s analysis, you can do so either by downloading this week’s tip sheet or by choosing one of the selections he has in play for today’s games. Jim’s success in the tip sheet over the last few years speaks for itself, NFL Best Bets: 73-47 ATS (60.8%), CFB Best Bets: 65-47 ATS (58.0%). This was on feature games that he didn’t get to choose, imagine how good he is on games he chooses for himself! He was also close to a 60% player on NBA & College Basketball in print previously as well, and believes his knowledge base can help all bettors in MLB, NHL, and an occasional other sport as well.

Jim Mack is here to work for you. After just a few days of playing with Jim, you’ll wish you would have found him earlier!
