Stu Feiner Review – The Most Notorious Scammer in Sports Betting History?

The Stu Feiner Story

The likes of Vegas Dave and Steve Stevens are small potatoes in comparison to the legendary Stu “The Source” Feiner. The self-proclaimed “greatest Sports Handicapper ever” is the OG (Original Gangster) when it comes to scamming people on the internet.

Stu was a notorious player in the handicapping industry in the pre-Internet era. He was featured in a Sports Illustrated article in 1991 titled: “1-900 Ripoffs“. He agreed to allow SI to document his NFL picks for four weeks, but after going just 19-32 for a win rate of just 37 percent, SI exposed him for falsifying his records.

Back in February of 1990, Stue Feiner was fined $13,000 by the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs for false and misleading advertising. Perhaps the funniest story exposed by SI was when Feiner’s brother-in-law Kevin Duffy ran an ad in the New York Daily News bragging about his winning picks in Week 1. What’s so funny about an ad you might ask? Well, the funny part was that the ad was published before the games were actually played.

Two For The Money – Stu Feiner Movie

You know you’re famous when they make a movie based on your life story, and Al Pacino plays the part of you, and that’s exactly what happened in the Hollywood film Two For The Money starring Al Pacino and Matthew McConaughey.

The film was based on the story of former college football star Brandon Lang, who aligns himself with one of the most renowned touts in the sports-gambling business (Feiner).

In real life, Stu Feiner is nothing like Al Pacino or the character portrayed in the film. Stu would be more similar to Will Ferrell, and his character of “Hank The Tank” in the movie Old School. The movie is only loosely based on a true story, and the tactics used by the characters in the movie are rarely seen in this day and age.

Barstool Sports Advisors

Founder Dave Portnoy is a controversial figure, who has been personally attacked by the Daily Beast, the Washington Post, and New York Magazine.

All three detail how Portnoy’s Barstool makes a business out of harassing women and others who criticize the site enlist its fans to do the same and refuses to back down. So perhaps it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that he happily promotes the most notorious scammer the sports betting industry has ever seen.

While Portnoy might not (yet) be selling Feiner’s services, he is giving him a platform to promote the services offered on his website. You would think that in 2020 with the resources available to bettors, it would be hard for guys like Stu Feiner to fool anyone. Well, you know what they say, “There’s a sucker born every minute”, and looking at the prices for Stu Feiner’s picks, it’s tough to argue with that statement.

Stu Feiner’s Pick Prices

Stu Feiner’s pick subscriptions range from $55 for all his picks for the current day and a weekly package for $7,500 to $40,000 for the full NBA season and an outrageous $100,000 each for the College Football and NFL season passes.

Don’t ask us how they decided on those prices … (hint, 365 daily passes at $55 would be just over $20,000, so you would actually pay more(!) by signing up long-term and for football only. As of 2021, Stu Feiner’s net worth was estimated to be around $10 million, so by the looks of it, a sucker is indeed born every minute.

Life long Las Vegan and through my 53 years spend part in the sports betting industry ….I only dealt with big clients ……Bottom line I’ve read some of the comments and I get it’s younger bar stool sports fans ….That doesn’t have anything to do with his past behaviors and sports consultant scam businesses ….He’s is what a typical con man was and is …..But nobody was holding a gun to your head buying his trash picks

Doesn’t Matter

If you believe anything those journalism companies from NY say about barstool then you have a small brain. Ask any woman in that office if they are harassed…. They constantly talk about how it’s all crap on their live shows and podcasts. Y’all will believe anything you read huh?


This article was dogshit and you guys are a bunch of pussies. Dave, Barstool, and Stu are fucking great.
P.S. it’s Frank the Tank not Hank the Tank….morons.

Good Article Bud

Possibly the most biased article I’ve read in my entire life.

Chris Ponce

Liam Clarke

Brad Carson

Stu Feiner is harmless. He isn’t fooling anybody, hell he ain’t even trying. He’s just acting the part and he’s pretty entertaining.

Michael Davis

yo this fucking article sucks. so lazy and you know it. what a succesful journalist you are


Barstool produced better content than this garbage hit piece when it was still just a little idea-sperm swimming around in Dave’s idea-nutsack 20 years ago

liam donovan

This is the biggest pussy ball hit piece ever yall are the biggest bitches on earth its so fun complete bruh moment


Barstool is a satirical site. A dangerous thing to be in 2020…Completely subversive to the grievance industry establishment.

Portnoy is Cancel Culture’s White Whale (pun intended).

youre just so wrong.

Come on. You think barstool’s content and money is just off ” harassing women and others who criticize the site enlists its fans to do the same and refuses to back down” ? You fell right into the trap of the media, who claim that when they try to take down the Stool. Watch some of these women’s podcasts, look at their treatment, and CEO is Erika Nardini. Find your brain, not your feelings!


Feiner has always been a scammer so are other guys who happen to make there picks the number one picks of other cappers . This is a fact .
