Sportsologists provide picks for soccer, football, tennis, baseball and basketball. We tracked picks from every category but due to the volume of picks the focus is pretty heavily on soccer and football.

First of all, I have to say that I like sportsologists approach with publishing picks on the website and on Instagram. It’s a refreshing change from Twitter and its bombardment with goal alerts and affiliate links. Speaking of affiliate links, those are nowhere to be found on the website.

When it comes to actual performance there’s a pretty significant difference between sports. We tracked 70 soccer picks and although they had a hit rate of 61.4% we just had a return of 1.0% and 2.10 units profit. The most profitable category were the NFL picks. We tracked 51 picks with a hit rate of 62.7% for a return of 9.2% and 18.05 units profit. The MLB picks were also profitable with a hit rate of 57.1% for a return of 6.1% and 4.15 units profit. With that said, the MLB sample size is pretty small with 21 tracked picks.

The tennis, NBA, and NCAAF picks weren’t profitable during the time we tracked the picks which results in the overall hit on the return on investment.

It seems like there’s money to be made with the NFL, soccer, and MLB picks.

Review: In-Play Man

Twitter: @InplayMan


“Top notch bets and top notch banter. The winning and sarcasm is endless!”

“In-Play Man” posts pre-game soccer picks on his website and in-play soccer picks on his Twitter. For this review we only tracked the “#IPMBetOfTheDay” from his website and his in-play picks. There are some challenges and accumulators posted on the website, but he mentions that those aren’t serious bets because they won’t be profitable in the long run.

The BetOfTheDay was tracked with 4 units per pick and the in-play picks were tracked according to his staking plan with 1 to 3 units per pick.

  • Match Goals
  • Multiple other bet types


  • Picks tracked: 106
  • Hit rate: 64.2%
  • Return on investment: 2.8%
  • Net profit: 7.35 units


While these stats may not seem overly impressive, we have to note that “In-Play Man” hit a losing streak late during our review. His ROI hovered between 5% and 10% for the majority of our time tracking him. Unfortunately, he lost a few of his BetOfTheDay (4 unit stakes) in a row which put a damper on the final results.

Should you choose to follow his Twitter you will get snarky remarks towards followers who ask annoying (in his eyes) questions. You will also get a lot of “BOOOM” and updates on how the picks are going.

Easily the best part of his service (apart from the picks themselves) are the stat packs he releases on a regular basis. They will be a tremendous help for your own betting adventures.
