Hard work and extreme passion to be the very best, those are the words that best describe how Jason Sharpe approaches his life as a full time professional sports bettor. Jason made the big move out to Las Vegas to bet on sports full-time back in 2008. Since that time he's taken his handicapping levels to their greatest heights. He puts forth the 100% commitment that's needed every day to stay ahead of the always evolving sports betting market. It's that type of work ethic that makes Sharpe one of only a few year-round professional sports bettors.
One must eat, sleep and breathe this lifestyle if they want to be one of the small percentage that succeed at it. That's the exact approach that Jason takes to his only occupation. It's a minimum 12 hour a day, 7 day a week job and one that he truly loves also. He works that hard because he knows that you must stay one step ahead of the other competition to maintain an edge. In fact he handicaps the entire betting card a whole day in advance by looking at all of tomorrow's games today. It's that type of organization, dedication, passion and paying attention to details that's needed for someone to be successful in life and also with betting on sports.
Pouring over all of the latest advanced statistics, breaking down the match-ups, making power ratings and researching everything he can find on each game, that's the kind of information that's needed. With years of winning now under his belt Sharpe knows exactly what to look for in each sport he bets. He knows you can't win by just making a point spread on a game, if that were than a computer math model could win at this long-term. Instead he takes things a step further and that's what he feels pushes him past the others in the handicapping world. By following the daily ebb and flow of every sport that he handicaps he tries to get an exact feel for what a team will do in that particular game that he is looking at. The question he's constantly asking himself is " How will this team play on this day?" He is looking for a peak performance, flat efforts, etc...That's not like most handicappers as most are only concerned about how good a team looks based off their seasonal statistics. That method no longer works in today's sports betting market. You must do a lot more than that to be a winner these days.
