F.A.Q.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I contact you to ask you questions or to purchase your service?

I’m available by telephone virtually 24 hours a day. Feel free to call me at 702-460-9378 or, if you prefer, you can email me at smashmouth4@cox.net. When you call, you will speak directly to me. I employ no secretaries or salesmen.

I am concerned about my personal information being distributed to others. Do you have a strict privacy policy?

I will not use any of your personal information unlawfully, or distribute it to any 3rd party without your consent. If you join my service, and want to keep your name and address private, you may send me a money order or cashier’s check. However, should you use a credit card, I am required by my processing network to obtain your name and billing address for verification purposes. That information will solely be used for such purpose.

Please explain how a “money line” works?

With money lines, there is a spread between how much one stands to LOSE if one bets on the favorite and loses, and how much one stands to WIN if one bets on the underdog and wins. Money lines are based on a hundred dollar wager. For example, a typical money line might be -150/+130. In that situation, if you take the favorite, you will win 100, or lose 150. That’s what the minus 150 represents. And if you take the underdog, you will win 130 or lose 100, which is what the plus 130 number represents. When the numbers are close to 100, the spread is smaller than when the numbers rise. Thus, in baseball, one could have a game be -130/+120, but when the game involves a big favorite, it could be -300/+260.

What methods of payment do you accept?

On the internet,currently use Paypal. The Paypal system accepts any major credit or debit card (Visa, MasterCard, Amex, Discover), or you can enter your Paypal user name and password. If you prefer to speak with me personally, you can use a Visa or MasterCard through my office, as well as Western Union, checks, money orders, etc. Should you use a credit or debit card through the office or over the internet, your purchase will be billed discreetly by “Scott Spreitzer Services”.

What style best describes your handicapping?

I believe one should never limit themselves to any certain tool of handicapping on its own. After all, the linesmakers bring their best every day and so must we. While I am a matchup handicapper by heart, I have incorportated situational capping along with pertinent “qualifying angles” (as I like to call them). Of course, understanding line value means more than anything, as far as I’m concerned. Almost two decades ago, an older professional bettor told me to get in the habit of making football lines two weeks in advance. This may be my single-greatest tool. Try it and you’ll see that it keeps you away from becoming too influenced by a team’s most recent performance.

When are your plays released?

The vast majority (over 90%) of my Late Phone Selections are released well in advance of game time. For Basketball and Baseball, that means overnight. And for Football, it could be as early as on the Monday in advance of the weekend, or overnight, prior to the day of the game. Sometimes, however, I need to confirm the line precisely, and a play is released within an hour of game time. All in all, my Late Phone Service is by far the most convenient of any handicapper. With respect to the plays sold online, most of the handicappers have their plays posted by 10 AM Eastern for games played that day. You are welcome to purchase any handicapper’s selections over the phone or online.

Will I ever be contacted by anyone from this website to purchase other plays?

NO! You can either purchase your plays on this webiste, scottwins.com, or by calling me at 702-460-9378. You will never be called or pressued to purchase additional plays.
