Become A Capper in 2021 - - Sports Handicapping Contest
Always Wanted to be a Handicapper? Here is Your Chance
We are excited to launch our Become A Capper Contest for 2021 where at least 2 people will join our PickDawgz and Sports Chat Place teams and become a handicapper.
Before I get started with the rules, please remember that becoming a handicapper is a commitment, and at the end of the day a job. While I hope this is a job you love and look forward to doing every day, it is a job that is done every day, we do not get days off.
