Insane Betting Myths

Analyzing The Insane Betting Myths That Are Actually True

There are plenty of different tips that professional handicappers use when advising bettors to wager in the betting lines, and one of the constantly recurring themes in most betting forums is that gamblers should keep away from myths. Here, we aren’t preaching a different gospel; we are all for shunning most of these myths. I mean, why would I believe these constant talks about sportsbooks Analyzing The Insane Betting Myths That Are Actually True There are plenty of different tips that professional handicappers use when advising bettors to wagfixing games with players and teams when I practically live off the money I make every day in my betting endeavors? Yes, I know games are rigged, like the way New England’s Tom Brady liaised with whoever to do whatever on his footballs in that game against the Colts, but to the best of my knowledge—and I know a lot—there is no sportsbook that is yet to be implicated in that Deflategate scandal. Just think of it, if Brady knew that he’d get a lot of advantage from underinflated balls, don’t you think he’d have conspired with a handful of sportsbook odds to benefit from it being the “winner” that he is? Anyway, that’s besides what I am trying to put across; my point is that most myths are useless and time-wasting, but some of them—like the ones detailed below—are actually true.

Lines Movements are More Influenced by the Market than Teams

While teams strengths, the manner in which they play and issues such as injuries and suspensions influence betting lines; most line movements are largely based on the public betting action and opinions, along with Wiseguy money. This is also true for popular teams like the Golden State Warriors in the NBA or the New England Patriots in the NFL, who tend attract a lot of action on sportsbooks as favorites, with the market pounding hard on them and often leading to a drop in their lines. Insane Betting Myths

Most Gamblers Bet the OVER

There’s probably nothing insane about this, but to think that over 70 percent of recreational bettors, especially those who are new to the betting world, I are estimated to bet on OVER is just plain crazy. With so much money spent on sports like basketball, soccer and hockey on the defensive side of the ball, you’d expect bettors to at least consider that defenses will figure in games and lead to a number of UNDERs. Fortunately or unfortunately, research has it that most people love high-scoring games and that often influences their betting decisions, as they channel their expectations into the betting lines and wager mostly on the OVER, even in instances that it is ill-advised to do so. But then again, you wouldn’t really blame these bettors, would you? I mean, with players like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo known to be goal-machines in soccer and the likes of Stephen Curry known to light it up in the NBA, your mind can easily be wired to expect high-scores whenever such players take to the field.

Betting Trends in College Sports are Usually Sharper than in the Pros

Going by the competitive nature of sports in the Pros, going on long winnings streaks or keeping certain trends intact is usually very hard. In college sports, it’s the exact opposite, with most dominant teams staying dominant year-in, year-out while the underwhelming schools continue to struggle, irrespective of roster turnovers. A good example here is the Florida State Seminoles football team that won 29 straight games between 2012–2014, including a national championship in the 2012-13 season. The other example is the Kansas Jayhawks basketball team that hasn’t won the national championship since 2008, but boasts of a ridiculous 206–9 ( .958) win record at their home court, the Allen Fieldhouse, under head coach Bill Self, a record that includes win streaks of 69, 33, and a currently-active streak of 40 entering the 2016 season. When you play Kansas at home, it is therefore almost given that the Jayhawks will be winning that game.

First Games in the Pro Leagues are Risky to Bet On
On one hand, the fact that teams are often in transition during the preseason or at the start of the season comes with the advantage that you can find lines that aren’t so sharp, which can lead to good profits. On the other hand, surprises come aplenty during the start of the season, including false-starters, underrated teams playing well and overrated teams underwhelming with iffy performances. As such, it is advisable to be keep away from these lines—like NBA and NFL preseason—unless you are really sure that you’ve covered your bases.

Alabama Crimson Tide

NCAAF Odds: Alabama, USC Clash at “Jerry’s World” in Arlington

The No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide are coming off their third national championship since 2009. They’ll open up their season in the marquee game of the week, playing against the No. 20 USC Trojans. USC have claimed 11 national football titles, with the last one coming in 2004. The two begin their 2016-17 campaigns on Saturday at AT&T Stadium – home of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys.

The Trojans were 8-6 straight up last season and 6-8 against the spread. They’ve got 16 starters returning, including 10 on offense, but they’ll have to make a key replacement at quarterback. Cody Kessler, who finished his career with 10,339 passing yards, 88 touchdowns and 19 interceptions has graduated.

The Crimson Tide went 14-1 last season (8-7 ATS). They bring back 11 starters, including six on offense. Most importantly, the Crimson Tide have head coach Nick Saban. During his tenure, the Crimson Tide are an incredible 95-11 over the last eight seasons. There are a lot of holes to fill this year – even on defense – but Saban will have the next group ready to defend the crown.

Alabama is 5-2 against USC, who lost the last meeting 3-24 in the 1985 Aloha Bowl. The Crimson Tide are 12-point favourites for Saturday’s neutral-site game.

College Football Season

The college football season officially kicks off on Friday in Sydney, Australia with the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors facing the California Golden Bears. The Warriors are 20-point underdogs as we go to press.

The college football season officially kicks off on Friday in Sydney, Australia with the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors facing the California Golden Bears. The WarBet on college football at Bodog and get a 100% bonus.

The Rainbow Warriors are coming off a 3-10 season, in which they went 0-8 in conference play. The good news is they return 15 starters from last season, including nine on offense. However, the defense is where Rainbow Warriors have to improve; they were 98th in yards allowed per game last season. They also gave up a whopping 38.9 points per game over their final nine contests.

The Golden Bears were 8-5 last season overall, which was somewhat disappointing after a strong 5-0 start. They welcome back nine starters but have to replace their star QB – Jared Goff who is joining the LA Rams as the top NFL draft pick. Davis Webb, a transfer from Texas Tech, is up for the starting QB job.

The Golden Bears and Rainbow Warriors have split their four overall meetings, with the last one dating back to 1994 – which Hawaii won. Game time for Friday’s match is 10 PM ET with Fox Sports 2 providing coverage.

San Francisco versus Denver Winning Favorites

2016 NFL Preseason San Francisco versus Denver Winning Favorites

Posted by Henry Watkins on August 18, 2016

2016 NFL Preseason San Francisco versus Denver Winning Favorites Posted by Henry Watkins on August 18, 2016 For the defending Super Bowl Champions, it’s timFor the defending Super Bowl Champions, it’s time to forget about the successes of a few months ago, and time to start thinking about the large target on you back. Any team who has ever won a title will tell you that defending it is harder than winning it in the first place, simply because everyone else wants a piece of the champion. The Denver Broncos essentially won it all with superior defensive play last year, and the general consensus is that they are going to have to go about things the exact same way this time around, mostly because Manning is gone, and an adequate replacement isn’t really in place. While that is a pretty big problem to have, it pales in comparison to what is going on in San Francisco. The 49ers look like a total shambles, and with the NFC West looking to be stronger than usual this season, they could be in for a rough go of things. They are way down in the Super Bowl 51 betting odds, and I don’t see them doing much to change that as the season progresses.

Why bet on the San Francisco 49ers

It is beginning to look more and more like Blaine Gabbert is going to be the man in San Francisco 49ers, as Colin Kaepernick looks like a man caught in limbo at the moment. Kaepernick came very close to moving to Denver in the offseason, but a potential deal fell through, leaving him on something of a strange spot. Gabbert did very little to impress in a Week 1 preseason loss, going just 4-10 for 63 yards and a TD. 43 of those yards came on the TD pass, but it has to be said that he looked pretty shaky overall. Kaepernick did not feature at all in that game, a 24-13 loss to the Texans, and it’s going to be interesting to see if he gets any snaps in Denver.

Why bet on the Denver Broncos

There are a trio of QB’s in Denver looking to take the number one spot, and Mark Sanchez will have given himself a leg-up with his performance in Week 1 of the preseason. He went 10-13 for 99 yards and 1 TD, as well as 1 INT, in a 22-0 win for the Broncos. As good as that performance was, what really jumped out was the ability of the Denver defense to essentially shut down the Bears. Chicago were held to 146 yards through the air, and just 48 on the ground, and much of that was against the Broncos reserves. It’s early yet, but this is the kind of defensive domination that the Broncos showed off last year.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

San Francisco versus Denver Winning Favorites

I don’t see Denver having any real problems covering the 4.5-point spread in this one. They should be able to shut down the 49ers offense, particularly if the QB’s continue to struggle.
