Pro Tips to Consistently Win at Sports Betting

With the start of the 2017 college football and NFL seasons currently taking place, not to mention, the ongoing MLB regular season and quickly approaching NHL and NBA seasons, now is the perfect time for some sports betting tips that could potentially help you cash in more consistently no matter the sport you’re wagering on. Thanks to my years in the sports betting industry, here are some of my favorite professional online sports betting tips.

Here’s a Closer Look at the Pro Tips to Consistently Win at Sports Betting

Know the 411 on 911

You’ll never believe it, but multitudes of online sports bettors make wagers without knowing the injury status of both, the team they plan on backing – or the opponent they’re wagering against. For instance, you probably don’t want to back the Tampa Bay Buccaneers if you know that Jameis Winston is playing on a gimpy ankle at less than 100 percent while you probably do want to bet against the Buffalo Bills if Tyrod Taylor is going to be out of the lineup. Know who’s slightly banged-up and who’s at 100 percent before you go laying your hard-earned betting bucks down.

Home Dogs Have Bite

Looks for home underdogs with something to prove people – they can be quite profitable! Home underdogs generally have something to play for against their favored visitors, not to mention the fact that they’ll be fueled by their raucous home fans. If a home underdog isn’t completely overmatched by a far superior opponent, then it’s probably a good idea to back that home dog to jump up and bite their opponent for a bankroll-boosting win.

Identify Teams on the Rise

Each and every year, no matter the sport, some team or teams rise up and stun everyone by unfurling a phenomenal campaign that almost no one saw coming. However, upon further review, many of these same rising teams may have announced their impending arrival either the season before or at some point in the offseason. Two good examples of teams like these would be the Tennessee Titans and Tampa Bay Buccaneers who both went 9-7 in 2016. Despite reaching the playoffs, both, the Titans and Bucs look like teams on the rise, so you shouldn’t be shocked if one or both teams have ‘surprisingly’ good seasons in 2017.

They’re Only Human!

No matter how good or bad you think a team may be, the one thing you need to remember is that even professional athletes are only human. This means that these same athletes often have emotional let-downs after huge, emotion-filled victories – or conversely – come out with a more determined effort after suffering a heartbreaking loss. Remember the zig-zag theory and how it can come into play, not just for a team involved in a series against one opponent, but how it can come into play for a team during the course of its season.

Fewer Picks Not More

One of the first things I learned about the sports betting industry and one of the age-old tps you need to live by is that, when things aren’t going well, you need to make fewer choices, not more.  One of the oldest mistakes that any sports betting enthusiast can make is to compound a few losses with more bankroll-draining losses in an effort to recoup the money that you initially lost. As every good handicapper knows, the key to being really successful is to make fewer, but finer and smarter, choices. Stick to your two or three best picks as opposed to dropping money on 10 games every week. Of course, if you’re on fire and you’re really ‘feeling it’ then by all means, go ahead and ride that winning streak until you can;t ride it any more. However, winning streaks can go the other way faster than a Blake Bortles pick-six.

The Heart of the Matter

Last but certainly not least, arguably my favorite sports betting tip is to remind you to never, ever, ever, under any circumstances whatsoever, make a wager with your ‘heart’ as opposed to your head. This sounds simple, but you’d never believe how many sports betting enthusiasts make wagers on some of their favorite teams based on what they ‘feel’ as opposed to making a calculated decision based mostly on facts, statistics, analysis, etc. Never wager on your favorite team if you want to avoid making wagers with your ‘heart’ instead of your head.
