What is a Handicapper?

A Handicapper when it comes to sports betting is a very broad term that basically refers to anyone who studies and or bets on sporting events. There are obviously different levels, and those without much betting experience or expertise in the sport wouldn’t call themselves Handicappers.

A Handicapper usually means someone who is well-versed in finding the edge and putting bets down that offer up a lot of value. They study things like trends, player health, and mismatches to get the upper hand in their bets. They can be professional, or amateur, the term covers both.

Handicappers are often mixed up with touts, and while they are similar, they do have some important differences: while touts always sell their picks, handicappers don’t necessarily have to.
