MYAKKA CITY, Fla., Aug. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Bob Akmens and his Basports.com enter this 2014-15 football season as the only sports service to ever win 70% in both college football & the NFL in a national handicapping contest in the same season.

For those who handicap football for a living, for the past 27 years there has been no other contest to compare with Ruth Glasgow's The Sports Monitor Combined Football Contest. Each year, the top 150 or so sports services (out of the thousands out there) put their reputations on the line and slug it out, head-to-head, seeking the title of "who is the best football handicapper?"

The results, with one exception, have been that the winner of this major contest has always won by less than 4% in win percentage. And the average winner has won by less than 1%. That is, until Basports.com rocked the handicapping world. During the 2012-13 football season, Basports.com won The Sports Monitor College Football Contest by a record-shattering 9.2% - more than double the biggest winning margin ever, and racked up 73.47% winners for the season, sweeping every category of the contest.

During that same football season, Basports.com won 70.7% in The Sports Monitor NFL Contest and finished #1 in the Most Net Profit Won category.

And in the process, Basports.com became the very first sports service ever to finish with more than 70% winners in both college & NFL football in the same year.  Never before had this been done by anyone. 

Basports.com's 72.16% football winning record in the undisputed #1 football contest for sports services,

The Sports Monitor's Combined Football Contest ("the ultimate rank standing," as TSM puts it) destroyed all prior records. The second-place service (out of 125 services) had a 63% record. So, Basports.com's

9% win goes down in history as the greatest single football handicapping season ever documented in a national contest.

Last year, after a good winning NFL Exhibition season, Basports.com started The Sports Monitor College Football Contest with an astounding 90% winners, ending the season with a solid winning percentage.

About.com (owned by The New York Times) has reviewed Basports.com and has given it the finest review any sports service could ever receive, telling the world that here is the best handicapper on earth:

"No other handicapper can match Akmens in terms of winning."

"One of the most respected handicappers in the business."

"He has a much better understanding of the sports betting scene than his competitors."

"Akmens...runs one of the only sports services that gets respect from bettors of all backgrounds."

"You truly do get what you pay for, plus more."

"I can count on one hand the number of services that I would give a positive recommendation about to a fellow sports bettor. Bob Akmens Sports would certainly be included in that select group."

Over the decades Basports.com has been in business as America's most profitable sports service, they have amassed a record comparable to none. They have finished #1 in 321 different categories of national handicapping contests, by far more than anyone else.

All of which explains their supreme distinction. Ultimately, a company is only as good as their customers say they are. When an Internet search is done for "who is the world's best sports handicapper," one sports service emerges at the top of the list: Basports.com. Microsoft's Bing (also used by Yahoo search and others) lists Basports.com as #1 in this search out of more than 100 million hits. Google also lists Basports.com as the best sports service in the world out of millions of hits. Nothing could be a greater proof of their success than this.

And Basports.com, the best sports handicappers in the world, and their thousands of worldwide clients, look forward to this football season with great expectations and great profits to be made.

Basports.com welcomes those who would like to share in those enormous potential profits to come on board with them for perhaps the finest football season they will ever experience.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged.

The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
