Handicapping Sports and Sports Books

Sports handicappers and sports investors are strongly encouraged to have more than one sports gaming source in order to shop for online values. This simply means taking the most advantageous position on every sports investment opportunity. Today there are numerous offshore sportsbooks, providing the opportunity to obtain multiple sports odds, and thus increasing the potential for a positive return.

Posted pointspreads can differ by a point or more on the same game, because lines are intended to evenly divide the wagering public’s opinion and, thus, their money. When a sportbook begins to receive more money on one side of a game than the other, they will likely move their line; however, due to the fact that there are so many gambling sportsbooks now, some houses may not receive as big of an imbalance of money as others, resulting in different lines for the same game.

Simple mathematics can easily establish the importance of “line shopping” or finding the best sports odds, as it can ultimately provide the difference between a profitable or losing week, month, or season. Random selections on 100 games should theoretically yield 50 wins and 50 losses. Assume for demonstration’s sake that 1 unit was wagered on each game. The result would be a net loss of 5 units due to the “vigorish” service fee taken by sportsbooks on each wager; however, if just FIVE of the defeats were within a point or two of the wagered line, and could have been won simply by finding a better pointspread, the result would be a 55-45 record and a net profit of 5.5 units. This is a reversal of more than 10 units on just a small number of events and with very conservative wagering. Even a half-point can be the difference between a win and a push or a push and a loss. Extrapolate the numbers over the course of a season with a more aggressive money management strategy and the gains are compounded dramatically.

Checking sports gambling odds at several sportsbooks is an absolute necessity and can be done much more quickly now than before the days of the Internet. PRO INFO SPORTS provides multiple live lines on the Handicapping Services – Sports Odds, Scores & News page.

As with any industry there are unscrupulous types to watch out for. Most of the offshore countries where sportsbooks are located require certain terms be met before they grant a license. Also, some countries are now beginning to legalize and regulate online gaming, the same as they do for other industries. Take your time in deciding who you will sign up with. Do your research on the various sportsbooks rules, promos, etc., to see if they meet your needs, and keep up to date with the latest sportsbook news.

Once your sportsbook accounts are funded, you are ready to find the best sports odds and put our handicapping and money management strategies to work for a rewarding and enjoyable sports investment venture with our Sports Handicapping Services.

And at the same time marvel at how they are able to excel in different sports.

Pete Sampras – Regarded as one of the greatest tennis players of all time, few might have thought of Pete Sampras as a very good golfer. With his 14 Grand Slam titles, it is very easy to see why his achievements in other sports could be overlooked. Make no mistake however, that he was also quite good on the greens. And if you really think about it, it shouldn’t be that much of a surprise since he’s always been pretty good on grass.

Brett Favre – Brett Favre is actually a pretty good golf. Now this is probably more of a surprise than the one about Pete Sampras, especially when you think about how Favre was not particularly known for being all that accurate when it comes to the football field. His achievements as a football player cannot be questioned though, and his capability in another game such as golf is certainly proof that he is a great athlete.

Brett Hull – Brett Hull is known as one of the greatest hockey players ever, and proof of that is his induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame back in 2009. He also had one of the greatest shots ever seen in the NHL, which only made his legend grow even more. When it comes to golf, Hull is definitely very good at it. He is an annual fixture in the American Century Championship, which is the yearly golf tournament for celebrities.

Jerry Rice – Jerry Rice is viewed by many to be among the greatest wide receivers ever to play in the history of the NFL. His acclaim and success in the sport of football was not enough for Rice, however, as he tried competing in golf as well. Although he did not fare as successfully as he had in his first sport, not performing too well in the Nationwide Tour, his exploits as a golfer is still considerable enough to rank him among the best to compete in golf while excelling in another sp
