Doc’s Sports Service Background

About three years before Wade Moseman was born, his father Morris “Morey” started Doc’s Sports Service in the basement of his Wisconsin home. Morey, lovingly known as “Doc,” was considered a pioneer in the sports betting industry before his passing in 2012.

Today, Wade proudly runs the company his father started in 1971 and while the company looks a lot different than its pre-internet days, winning sports picks are still at the heart of it all. Doc’s offers a roster of handicappers that customers can choose from and Wade says he vets each capper for up to six months to ensure they’re consistent and honest.  

Doc's Sports Review

Without question Doc’s biggest selling point is their experience in the sports betting world. Trust is an important piece of the equation when evaluation pick services, so it helps knowing Doc’s has 53 years of experience, a Youtube Channel boasting 40,000+ subscribers, and partnerships with respected brands in the industry.

While my particular secret shopper trial month with Doc’s wasn’t profitable, the pick recommendations had sound logic and a few different bounces on some of the higher unit recommendations would have put me in the black. The unit sizes offered by Doc’s takes some getting used to as they recommend large unit bet sizes (as high as nine units) based on their handicapper’s conviction level. I’d recommend new betters be cautious and not bet the farm just because you see higher unit wagers. There is usually analysis for each pick offered, and that analysis is most often around 4-5 sentences long and generally longer for the higher unit recommendations.

Doc’s does a good job of documenting the recent hot streaks its cappers are on which is helpful if you want to ride the hot hand, but they could improve their transparency rating by tracking detailed long-term results for each of their handicappers on their website. Long-term spreadsheet results are available for customers who inquire.

I like that Doc’s offers so many different handicappers to choose from and provides detailed information about each to help users decide who they want to go with. Wade is proud of what he calls his “All-Star” team of handicappers with 200+ combined years of experience and I got the strong impression that he takes hiring handicappers seriously and knows how to recruit winners. 

Doc’s customer service team is easy to get a hold of via phone (1-866-238-6696) or email (service@docsports.com) and they offer a “guarantee” that protects against losing wagers. For instance, if you purchase a $30 MLB package and it results in a loss, your account will be credited another $30. For $30, customers can try a daily sport package and there are also $99 weekly packages, $299/monthly packages, and $950 full season packages. Wade is proud of the fact that Doc’s hasn’t increased prices recently and says these prices are the same they were 20 years ago.

If you’re someone who likes to bet on more obscure sports, Doc’s is a great option because some of their handicappers specialize in Korean baseball, NASCAR, the CFL, and UFL.

What to expect from Doc’s Sports Service

Doc’s offers new subscribers a free $60 account and you can then choose which handicappers you want to put that $60 credit toward. The website offers 12 experts to choose from and you can read more about each capper, which sports they offer, some of their sports betting achievements, etc. Once you’ve chosen who you’re getting picks from, you’ll receive the recommendations via email each day until your trial runs out.

The email is very generic and simply contains the pick(s), a recommendation for how many units to bet, and a short explanation for why the handicapper is fond of the bet. Doc’s also sends attention grabbing emails with subjects like “Big Play Alert”  enticing you to sign up for other handicappers.

Doc’s website also features articles, daily videos, betting advice for beginners, and access to their weekly newsletter. 

Can I Trust Doc’s Sports Service?

Yes. After reviewing Doc’s Sports Service, I feel comfortable recommending them. There aren’t many trustworthy pick service providers out there, but after peppering Wade with questions and trying the service for myself as a “secret shopper,” I understand why they’ve been in business for so long.

The decision to purchase a pick service shouldn’t be taken lightly and sports betting comes with inherent risks, but if you understand those risks and are looking for a pick service, Doc’s is worth a shot and you can have access to free picks to test the waters. Doc’s handicappers offer picks for the following sports: NFL, NCAA Football, NBA, NCAA Basketball, WNBA, NHL, MLB, Horse Racing, Soccer, Fighting, Golf, Soccer, UFL, CFL, and NASCAR, and Korean baseball. 

How do I review Pick Services?

A lot of product reviews on the internet are whipped up overnight with little heavy lifting or intentionality. My reputation in the sports betting industry is something I take seriously, which is why I’ll only vouch for pick service providers operating with integrity. With that in mind, my process is intentional, multi-layered, and intense.

Prior to writing each review, I spend time “secret shopping” as a customer, while reading analysis and grading picks on a daily basis. I also schedule phone/skype interviews with a relevant member of their team to better understand how they operate and how they get their edge. Finally, I ask each provider to complete a detailed survey which helps me assess their self awareness and if their perception of their service matches my perception as their customer.
