A sports handicapper who couldn’t pay his bills and lost his house in a foreclosure Is now co-hosting a nationally syndicated sports betting television show, advising viewers who to bet on to make money!

Deadbeat tout Ted “Teddy Covers” Sevransky lost his house in 2010, a story that was first reported by Gambling 911.
Now Gambling 911 can report that the disgraced handicapper this football season has been co-hosting a TV show called “Beat the Odds” and attempting to pass himself off as a sports prognosticating expert to clueless viewers.


The show is also co-hosted by another handicapper, “Fat” Jack Ross, and a local Las Vegas television personality named Dave Hall.
The weekly 30-minute show airs on the YES  Network and other television channels across America, and will air its Super Bowl edition this weekend.
“If I knew a sports handicapper had lost his home, I wouldn’t have much faith in his ability to pick winners or make money,” one professional sports bettor, who didn’t want his name used, told Gambling 911.
“I would run away from someone like that as quickly as possible. The notion that someone who couldn’t make enough money to pay his own bills is now going to make me money just because he’s on television is absurd.”
Another anonymous pro sports bettor told Gambling 911: “Sevransky is a clown. Nobody takes him seriously as a handicapper. Putting him on TV doesn’t change that.
“Anybody who listens to his advice, or worse yet, pays for his picks, is wasting their time and wasting their money.”
Gamblers aren’t the only ones who have trashed the capping skills of “Teddy Covers.”
Deadspin, a sports news website, did a story about sports handicappers in 2016.
About Sevransky, Deadspin said: “Teddy Covers is as sharp as a marble. A documented six-year loser at Sports Memo, he became one of the faces of Pregame after joining in August 2014.
“Sevransky’s Pregame plays lost almost $4,000 through May of last year, not including another $4,000 in estimated fees to buy his picks, and then he nose-dived during the 2015 NBA playoffs, going 9-24.
“Still he peddled his “Slumpbuster” package. On June 20, he crowed about a “relatively rare” three-star “Big Ticket” release. How rare was it? He had sold another one nine days earlier. Both lost.”
In the 1970s, there was a famous gag poster of President Richard Nixon with the caption, “Would you buy a used car from this man?”
In 2023, sports bettors can ask of Sevransky, “Would you buy sports picks from this man?”
