Looking back to our NFL Wild-Card betting recap.

Explaining Boosted NFL Odds

When an online sportsbook "boosts" its NFL odds, it means it's artificially shifting the opening line in favor of the bettor. For example, if an NFL prop opens at -135 for a QB to throw Over 225 yards, the sportsbook will move or "boost" the line to -110.

That means a $100 bet placed on the Over would win $91 with the boosted -110 line vs only $74 had the wager been placed on the opening -135 line, a $17 increase in profit. In this particular case, boosting the opening line from -135 to -110 equated to a 18.5% profit increase.


Calculating Profit Increase

Percentage of Profit Increase calculates how much a bettor can increase their earnings should the boosted odds win.

How is it calculated? It's simple.

First, find the total difference between the original line and the boosted line. Then, disregard all negative (-) signs for the calculation. Once you have the positive difference, you divide that difference by the original odds to calculate the increase in profit.

Percentage of Profit Increase

Using the 'NFL QB Over 225 Passing Yards' example from above, the difference between -135 and the boosted -110 is -25, but we know we need to disregard those negative (-) signs, so we are left with just 25. We then divide 25 by 110, which equals an 18.5% profit increase.


Where Can You Find Boosted Odds?

You can find boosted odds at most online sportsbooks via dedicated pages on site for the odds boost or through social media and email promotion. But who wants to spend every day going through all the promotional sections, tweets, posts and emails for every betting site available in your state?
