Intermediate to Advanced Sports Betting Strategies

Sportsbooks are constantly adjusting to the market. It’s not uncommon for successful sports gambling strategies to become dated and useless over time. In the case of MLB betting , a bettor in attendance at Wrigley Field might have had a big advantage in the pre-internet days, for example, based on whether the wind was blowing north or south on a given day.

Good luck finding a similar edge in the analytical era. Every conceivable statistic and weather report is likely already baked into the point spread. Just as online sportsbooks have adjusted with algorithms and analytical approaches, keen sports bettors must constantly adjust and weigh strategies over long periods of time.

It’s all about finding the right plan for you. The Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers had vastly different strategies and approaches in Super Bowl 54, but neither team went out there deciding to wing it and go with their gut from snap-to-snap. Just like James Harden doesn’t suit up for the Houston Rockets every night to ignore the game plan and fire off 3-pointers at will. (Alright, bad example).

Bookies.com handicappers and analysts are constantly researching and reporting on new successful ways to increase your edge over time. Our strategy guides offer a comprehensive look at different betting types, trends, consistent value plays and sport-specific plans of attack.

Some overall methods are quite simple, like fading the public. The idea is that sportsbooks know more than the average bettor. Therefore, one identifies which games or teams the majority of the public is betting and makes the opposite pick.

Others are more about jumping in at the right time. Trends showing the over is far more likely to hit at certain college basketball arenas, or NFL teams consistently covering against certain divisional opponents, leave value on the board for as long as it takes sportsbooks to adjust.

Just remember that going in blind, with no plan, is a bad idea. Most sports bettors don’t have the advanced knowledge required to beat the book on instinct alone. They unknowingly turn sports wagering into a constant coin flip, which is a surefire way to lose money considering players must hit 52.4% of bets just to break even.

Bankroll management is equally important, requiring a clear strategy and impulse control in order to avoid squandering opportunities with careless, risky wagers.

Keeping an open mind about other sports is also helpful when trying to build a profit. Maybe NFL is your thing, but the point spreads are the tightest of any league in the world. Betting on MMA or college basketball can be just as fun and perhaps more profitable with the help of our individual sports guides.

There’s an endless number of strategies out there, most of which can be helpful in the correct hands. Using online sportsbooks with no plan or money management is almost guaranteed to fail. Consulting our experts to see which method or methods work for you can make all the difference.
