Sean Higgs's PhotoSean 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's PhotoJim 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!


Dennis Macklin's PhotoDennis Macklin

Moving to Las Vegas in 1991, Dennis became a true Vegas “insider” working behind the scenes for several major services before going on his own in 2002. Macklin has numerous radio and television credits on his resume, including a regular 20-minute football segment “Beat the Spread”, on the One on One radio network. In addition, he was a weekly panelist on USA Networks “Sports Desk” in 2001 and 2002. Monitored by several top monitors since 2003, Macklin has firmly established himself as one of the sports information industry’s top experts.

In virtually no time at all, DMack, as Dennis is known, had accumulated over 50 Top-10 finishes including several No.1’s a several documented monitors.

Dennis finished second in the NBA and seventh in college hoops in 2004 to become the No. 1 combined basketball handicapper. He also won the 2005 NHL crown outright and owns three handicapping titles.

Dennis decided he wanted to continue to grow and learn more about the sports wagering business and worked with Phil Steele in Cleveland and also spend several years in Costa Rica doing contract writing and advertising for a marketing concern.

DMack has rededicated himself to handicapping and is starting to become serious about poker. Macklin was a participant in the 2006 World Series of Handicapping winning two of the seventeen legs and in 2007 cashed (Top-20) in the most prestigious NFL handicapping contest on the planet, The Hilton Super Book Contest. DMack finished fourth in the NFL at 80-56 and + 18.40 units and looking for more this season. In an industry that offers no guarantees, of one thing you can be certain. Nobody works harder or is better prepared to get YOU the money. The Mack Attack has your back and the best is yet to come.
