The Importance of a Code of Conduct in the Handicapping industry

Jun 5, 2013

When I left a successful law practice to establish Oskeim Sports Consulting, LLC, one of my first tasks was to develop and implement a code of ethics that would set my firm apart from the scam-artists who pervade the sports handicapping industry.

Oskeim Sports Code of Conduct/Code of Ethics:

  • Full transparency, which is achieved by publishing every selection on the site within thirty (30) minutes of each game starting.  Substantiation of the foregoing transparency is achieved by submitting every selection to The Sports Monitor of Oklahoma for independent verification.  I am proud of the fact that Oskeim Sports has received 31 distinguished awards from The Sports Monitor since 2007, including three #1 finishes;
  • Every sports pick is supported by detailed research and analysis, including fundamental, technical and situational handicapping.  Many handicappers and pick sites merely release their selections without any analysis (i.e. New York Giants -4 over Dallas Cowboys), which is the height of laziness.  Members of Oskeim Sports receive sports picks that are fully supported by award-winning proprietary research and analysis;
  • Unparalleled customer service, which is a trademark of Oskeim Sports.  While many of my competitors fail to develop personal relationships with their clients, I take a vastly different approach as my clients’ investment goals and objectives are of paramount interest to me and my company.  The personal relationships that I have developed over the last seven years has allowed me to reach the pinnacle of the sports handicapping industry – an 84% renewal rate. Earning my clients’ trust and respect is an ongoing effort, and one that I take very seriously;
  • Education, which takes the form of daily blog articles, newsletters and detailed money management advice.  For example, I will not allow a prospective client to spend a certain amount on a subscription if his/her bankroll does not justify the expense.  While most of my competitors in the sports picks industry are strictly concerned with sales and the bottom line, I am more concerned about providing the betting public with the best value for their dollar. Honesty and integrity are the hallmarks of Oskeim Sports, and I am here to provide the bettor with an education as well as with profitable investment advice.

Providing industry-leading transparency, together with unparalleled customer service and continuing education are the primary objectives of my sports investment firm.  Oskeim Sports has outperformed the investment industry for seven consecutive years, and I have achieved this success without compromising my honesty and integrity.  As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at your convenience.
