Some people have to learn everything the hard way, right? We gave people lots of reasons on why you should never use football tipsters. But they are still asking for lists of bets to place.

Not for 10$, not for 100$, not for 1000$. He could create a subscription service where a few selected individuals would pay 10000$ every week to get his tips. With just 20 subscribers he would have a constant revenue stream of 200.000$ per week. No stress. But he still does it... "the hard way". Why? Because, this is not something to give away very cheaply.
