If you are like me then you know that nothing is more frustrating then losing a bet you places on a sports team that should have been the winner. You do the research and you are confident that you have picked the right team that is going to win. Trust me, we as sports betters have all been there. How would you like to make sure that every bet you make is going to be a winner?

It comes down to math…

As with anything in life, it always just seems to come down to math. Do you know how the margin of victory in a game is estimated? Is it the number of points scored? Or is it the number of rebounds, steals, blocked shots and other statistical items that are included in the final outcome of the game? There is no real accurate way to know if a team is going to win or not, unless you can find a chart or a study showing the exact results of a specific game.

As I mentioned above, there is probably some scientific study of the game and there are certain patterns to identify. The problem is that when a sporting event is quoted at odds of 3 to 2, the vast majority of the data will be skewed towards the favorites. This is because the vast majority of betters are betting with the opinion that they have seen some downsides.

Online Betting and the Odds

Let’s say that we have a NBA home underdog chart that shows the home team is +.5Structural advantage? Sure, as long as the home team is getting the +.5, they have a greater chance of beating the spread. They are more likely to say their team is +1, +2, +.5, +3, and so on. For the most part, a team is likely to be favored on the point spread as long as they are a majority favorite.

Sports Betting emphases winning by telling you what the odds look like should a certain team win. You can see an odds chart or you can look at the online betting sports page and they will give you what the bet odds look like for that team currently are.


During the Pokerrepublik season, the betting lines will change based on what the betting public is betting on. If you want to get the best early line value, you should probably look for early line value before placing your bets. The majority of the public will wait to see who the favorite is until the last possible moment and place their bets on the favorite team. Then, the day of the match they find out that they were wrong and that their team would not win.


The addition of the money line makes hockey betting one of the more difficult sports to beat. When you are betting on the money line, you only win if a team wins. A game can end with a tie, so you do have to keep track of the score, but a tie often results in a spread score which is less than a goal.

So, the next time you are watching hockey, you should keep these ideas in mind and try to make them work for you.
