    I have no problem with John Rainey....he's usually better than most for what
    he charges. Hell, someone almost always post his plays in the RX Service Plays
    Forum for free. Just a thought before forking out a lot of money.

    To each their own...................

    It's 1500.00 for the premier package I only ask for 10 people so that it's only 150.00 each I know many people purchase multiple packages from different people so I'm just trying to keep it affordable for everyone to still be able to get in on other plays.

    What makes his so great? How did he do last year in CFB and NFL? Hitting between 65% to 70%?

    If he charges $1500 for a football season, he better be win between 6.5 to 7 plays out of every 10 plays.

    If he's honest and wins consistently doesn't need to sell his picks IMO

    He finished just over 62% last year in NCAAF and NFL but that was with him finishing below 500 on his 10* witch are considered his strongest plays as candylicker stated above he's finished over 70% in the 10* over the past few years. I can't see him repeating last years performance on his 10* looking for him to have a big year this season

    I have no problem if people want to pay touts.... but keep in mind, you said he finished under .500 for his 10* plays... so if he rates his plays by units.... winning % does not matter. Units profitted matters.... because what if he finished 70% but lost all his 10* plays but won his 2* plays..... that would mean you lost alot of $$ even though he finished at 70%...... thats just my opinion. hopefully someone post his plays in the service plays.

    They generally do post his plays in the Service Play forum. He used to mainly put out 1-3-5* plays. A few years ago he started offering select 10* plays. I will agree with OP that he is a pretty good capper. I used him for several years before I found this forum. I do look at his posted plays service play forum. If he has a 10* I will usually play those. I will play 5* if they align with whatever else I am doing. As far as the guy himself, he has been a radio personality for years in Memphis on 560 WHBQ. Good guy to do business with meaning he is honest. Actually started a pet day care recently in Memphis. I have a friend with a guy who was his neighbor though and said he was a huge prick. I could care less if he hits 65%. I wouldn't mind pitching in if no one else is posting them in the service play forum.

    As I stated early....if you buy picks...Rainey is as good as anyone.

    If he loses a 10 unit play...how many 1 unit plays does he have to
    win to make up for those losses. Ok, how many 2 unit plays to make
    up for a 10 unit loss.

    I wouldn't give God Al-Mighty money giving me unit plays and expect
    to win. If you are so (lacking) in football knowledge...don't bet or just
    flip a coin. My guess you would come out better flipping a coin. Hell,
    I'd even bet you on it.
