Before I opened Qoxhi Picks in 1981, all my experience was focused on the football game itself. I knew players, motivation and point spreads, but my education in gambling was mostly learned from clients more qualified in the pursuit than myself.
Naive to the importance of money management with a total focus on winning point spread decisions it wasn’t too long before I realized that winning picks without sound money management is no more beneficial than a high-powered sports car with missing wheels. Most gamblers hate money management while thriving on the thrill of huge risks … which too often erode would be profits.
For the first 20 years Qoxhi was in business the contact with clients on game days was limited to phone conversations. Before long, it became obvious to me what clients were best capitalizing on my work and which ones were throwing money at the pursuit with no more success than a drunken sailor in a tattoo parlour.
Not all the successful clients followed the same path … but they all followed a plan that was well conceived and faithfully executed. Success could be gained from a method as fundamental as wagering the same amount of money on every game delivered, to those that focussed strictly on the one play each week identified as the Top Pick.
In 2001, I introduced the Account Manager on the Qoxhi Picks site. This is a tool designed to duplicate the methods I had learned from my most successful clients; those individuals that were not overly interested in player names or team success but more importantly focussed on bottom line results. Today, five proven successful money management methods are available online, each is designed to guide clients to consistent wager amounts to maximize profits based on opening account balances and past results. The five different strategies incorporate the best strategies I learned from clients with varying degrees of risk versus reward variables.
