I’ve been trying for a few years now to figure out how to consistently win against online sportsbooks, because the money is definitely there and there’s no harm in taking it. What I’ve found though, is that the guys who set the lines really know what they’re doing most of the time. They normally have every bit of good information about each game, and they also use tricks and create traps. They do make some mistakes, but not often enough. Over the long term the sportsbooks, as most people realize, make a tremendous fortune off of their players.
I was often really disappointed because I wanted so much to just beat the sportsbooks, especially the ones who had some of my money. I wanted to get it back and take some of theirs and see how they liked it. Mostly though, I just wanted to win a lot of money. They are so rich. I ultimately came up with a system for betting baseball that I think works pretty well but you have to have a lot to win a lot, and it doesn’t work with other sports. Someone else’s information does, however, and it’s also more effective than mine. I actually found it one day while reading stuff on the internet that I thought would help me win at football.
A portion of this information is in fact effective with football, but it works best with baseball and basketball. I fully analyzed it and studied how I would have to implement it in order not to lose anything, and I also calculated approximately how much I would make off of it. Here is some of what I came up with: during the basketball season, there are around eighty bets to make. I wouldn’t want to commit more than one third of my money per bet. If there’s a loss, however, I can safely commit the other two thirds for at least the next twenty bets. As for baseball, there are around forty games to wager on per year. I wouldn’t risk more than half my bankroll on any one of these, absent a loss. In the event of a baseball loss, I can probably safely commit my full remaining bankroll for the remainder of the season.
