    SBR needs

    something similar to the covers consensus, easy to track good cappers etc...has this been done here before? If you bring it in, should add more than just the usual main USA sports, SBR is international now after all.

    Too real, this is a sportsbetting site at the end of the day right? People should be signing in and supporting the idea.

    It's not like that. There are some very good cappers here I'm sure of it.

    SBR is definately more international

    Look for more focus on these international sports also

    Rally up the troops, get some support behind it.

    Lou and Mr. Walker should jump in and let us know if they are for the idea or not.

    And how can it be done without copying covers but also having it's own uniqueness.

    SBR leads the way in forumville. Lets bring in something more.

    You get to the consensus by clicking the i tab next to the teams on SBROdds.com and then clicking consensus. We will have a brand new consensus up and running for preseason football. There will be a ton of information there including what the touts are picking. I like brettels idea.

    Where does the SBR consensus data or votes come from john? Doesn't seem like it would be coming from SBR members.

    Just fade roxxxy in the international markets and you'll be a millionaire in no time.

    Us elite here at sbr already know that.

    I don't read roxxxy threads, not what i'm interested in. Bring in the capping contest/consensus.

    If its done right you find out who the good cappers are it goes into more detail than a plain old consensus.

    I like where Brettels is going here.

    Us Australasian cappers are probably the sharpest on the forum.

    John take note here.

    On the SBR Contests main page it shows that there is a bet tracker coming soon. I'm sure it will allow people to follow others.

    Capper details are essential W/L percentages etc.... capper rankings. Possibly only viewable by SBR pro's.

    I would guess that this is probably their plan. Back in December John asked if they should sell tout picks. I responded with this:

    This is how I would do it (not that it is the right way for everyone, but it is my opinion)

    First: SBR has to make a section where you can enter picks (All for 1 unit so people can't skew their results) and it has to track each pick the poster makes and split it up into each sport.
    Keep track of the +/- units and the ROI and the average line that the poster wagers on.

    This section should be different than the SBR Sportsbook because people like to go wild with their points in there.

    Second: The picks made in this special section should not be visible to other posters, but the records of each sport should be available to see in the poster's profile.


    Third: You should only be able to sell picks if you have reached a certain mark...like say...you need to have at least a 5% ROI through 100+ plays and your average line can't be more than -150 or something like that. (obviously i'm just throwing numbers out there for now). and you should also hafta be a poster here for a certain amount of time and also be a SBR PRO

    Fourth: Each poster who is eligible to sell their picks for a certain sport should have the option to make a pick and put it up for sale for how many points they choose (and SBR can take their 10%) and something should indicate to the other posters that the seller has a pick for sale. (maybe by their name there should be a red light if there is nothing for sale and green if there is)


    This way people can really prove if they are good at picking certain sports without using a spreadsheet that can be manipulated
    Just my thoughts

    And shortly after that on the contest page it said that a Bet Tracker is coming soon on the contests page. Whether they're going with those ideas or not...who knows

    I don't agree with hiding the picks and picks should not be sold, this is a community where people are here to help each other make $ not rip each other off. It becomes pointless that way. SBR makes enough money by people becoming pro and there sponsors and affiliate links etc....all they need to do is make it unviewable to non pro's.

    I meant hide it to people unless they pay some POINTS (not $) for it. obviously I was just quickly throwing out some ideas at the time. Maybe have non pros pay points for them and pros get to see the picks for free. And the player making the picks gets to charge whatever amount of points he wants...something like that

    That can work but I don't think its necessary. The point would be another reason for non pro's to become pro, it holds more value. However a point system for top 5 cappers as a reward paid by sbr in betpoints would be motivational.

    SBR John! Would really like to know where the data for the consensus comes from on SBR odds.
