Don’t Be a Square: 10 Tips for Betting on Football

So underdogs tend to be slightly undervalued – except by the sharps.”

So, how much should you bet a game?

8.

While these tips don’t guarantee you’re going to win, hopefully they can make you a little less square and a little more sharp in your picks this season. “Most people prefer to bet on the ‘better’ team, the one that will probably win the game.

So, how much are we gambling each football season?

Betting on football games; whether it’s through a local bookie, an offshore Internet site or a Nevada casino (still the only legal place in America to make football bets), most of us have done it or know of someone who has. The NFL, for example, will have very similar numbers at most of the betting shops you visit. Oakland comes to mind) seem like the Super Bowl.

And remember, in the immortal words of “Fast” Eddie Felson, “Money won is twice as sweet as money earned.”

9.

“The biggest mistake that amateur bettors make is they increase their bets when they are losing,” Sevransky says. Giving 11 to 10 odds is almost always the cheapest price you can give.”

“The standard bet requires gamblers to lay $11 for every $10 they want to win with the extra $1 or 10 percent known as the juice,” Konik says. There is a wealth of information on the Internet; it is just up to you to find it and research it daily.”

But that doesn’t mean you have to bet like a “square” and throw away your hard-earned money.

Certainly not back into the pockets of the average bettor.

“In an average season, fewer than one bettor in twelve turns a profit,” Gordon says.

Newspapers and popular sports sites routinely publish the lines or point spreads for games, and football insiders offer their picks to viewers each week on ESPN and other cable networks.

“A square is the average, unsophisticated gambler whose decision making is based on hunches, media manipulation, or spurious systems that cannot overcome the bookmaker’s inherent mathematical advantage,” Konik explains. There are almost an infinite number of scenarios that can happen in a single football game.

10. “Over the course of several seasons, the percentage of bettors who turn a profit is minuscule.”

“There is probably no better bet in sports than playing an underdog at home,” Moseman says. “As for me, the best bet in football is betting the point spread or over/under totals on individual games. But, when you’re struggling, that’s when you want to reduce your bet size until you get out of your slump. Slim underdogs regularly win outright. He loses year after year, according to Dan Gordon, a top football handicapper and author of How to Beat the Sports Books (Cardoza Publishing 2005). Consider Underdogs – “In the long-run, it’s easier to win betting on the underdog,” Konik says. If you want advice about sports betting, find someone who has a successful track record. “If you listen to their advice, you are sure to lose. “For example, if you have a $1,000 bankroll for the season, you should generally bet no more than $50 a game.”

So, is it possible for the average square to become a little sharper in making football bets this season? According to professionals like Vacarro, Konik and Gordon, amateur bettors have the best chance to win if they demonstrate a little patience and follow the 10 basic tips below. He is not taken in by being involved in USC-Notre Dame just because it is the biggest watched game of the day. Not all games work according to this formula, but it is usually a good rule of thumb.”

2. If you are going to go with a favorite, it is best to place your bet early in the week when the sharps are laying heavy money on the points. “The sharps are usually members of a betting syndicate privy to the most up-to-date information on injuries, weather, game plans, and, most important, the real power of the teams involved. The only touts bettors should consider are the ones who talk about the long haul and realistic winning percentages, which are in the upper 50 percent to lower 60 percent range.”

Ted Sevransky, a well-known Las Vegas gambler and sports consultant with Sportsmemo.com, agrees.

5. The only locks that exist are those that need keys to open them.”

“A square or recreational player might have a vague plan, but after two Corona’s he will definitely run to the window and make a hasty decision on the USC-Notre Dame game because he wants to be involved in the party atmosphere,” Vaccaro says. Big underdogs often find ways to cover the spread and they rarely give up toward the end of a game in front of the home crowd.”

Although exact figures are impossible to calculate, according to Jimmy Vaccaro, widely considered to be Las Vegas’ most influential bookmaker, Americans probably wager more than $50 billion a year on NFL and college football combined. “The key to proper money management is to be sure not to bet more than you can afford to lose.”

“A sharp or smart has a plan of what he wants to do,” says Vaccaro, the director of sports operations and public relations at Lucky’s Race and Sports Book in Las Vegas. If North Texas is his best bet on a Saturday then that is his bet. .

1. Research Football Services – “Most sports services realize that most people who sign up with them are insecure,” Gordon warns. Drinking and Gambling Don’t Mix – “There is a reason the casinos in Las Vegas supply you with free drinks while you are gambling,” Moseman says. “When you’re in a good rhythm and winning, you want to increase your bets. In fact, sports bettors must pick 52.4 percent winners just to break even.”

“Most people with an understanding of football gambling bet between 3 percent and 5 percent of their bankroll, increasing when they win and reducing when they lose,” Vaccaro says. And why not? We have unconditional love for the sport and betting $50 or $100 on a game adds an extra rush of adrenaline. “In trying to bamboozle potential customers, many services make claims about having scouts all over the country that give them inside information and promise 70 or even 80 percent winners, as if the bookmakers were the biggest suckers in the world. Focus on Conferences – “The best way to win money betting football is to develop a niche and follow it closely,” Moseman advises. “He is not jaded by teams and does not bet with his heart. “Because alcohol clouds your judgment and usually helps you to make rash decisions you usually wouldn’t otherwise make. “Teams play inspired ball at home. Otherwise, you’re better off doing your own research.”

Michael Konik, a sports writer and best-selling author of The Smart Money (Simon & Schuster 2006), explains why it is so hard for the recreational gambler to win at betting on football.

7. Avoid Exotic Bets – “For very skilled handicappers, with a proven track record, there can, at least in theory, be value in betting parlays,” says Gordon on the type of bet that combines two or more individual wagers. On college you will be able to find different lines at different sports books. Avoid Chasing Bets – “Don’t do it! There is no worse way to mismanage your bankroll than to chase your bets after a losing day,” cautions Moseman on the dangerous practice of trying to immediately win back your losses.

However, Konik adds that there are some bettors who actually know how to beat the bookies. They use powerful computers that can process millions of bits of data and produce a more accurate point-spread line than the bookmakers.”

“The talking heads on TV know nothing about sports betting,” says Sevransky. “Thus, the bookies love and cherish the squares.”

But even though the math says it’s virtually impossible to win on a consistent basis, Americans continue to bet on football. To be a successful sports bettor you need to operate with a clear mind.”

Another difference between squares and sharps is how they approach betting on game day.

“The bookies fear and despise a tiny coterie of professional bettors known as ‘the sharps,’” Konik says. Thanks to the juice, the only one who profits in this scenario is the bookmaker. “In the NFL, a game will often be totally turned around by one or two plays, or even a single penalty. The payout is just the same as far as he is concerned. Money Management – “This is without a doubt the most important aspect of betting on sports and possibly the most neglected,” says Morey “Doc” Moseman, a professional gambler and sports consultant with DocSports.com for nearly 40 years. Chasing losses is the fastest way to the poor house.”

And where does all that money go?

Also, it’s probably a good idea to disregard advice from the myriad of ex-players and football experts you see on television each week. Also, being “in action” can make a dull late-afternoon game (Buffalo vs. Locks Don’t Exist – “Anyone who has watched sports for about a month realizes that the difference between winning and losing, especially against the spread, can be infinitesimally small,” Gordon says. “Common wisdom says that over the course of a long football season the average man or woman will pick approximately 50 percent winners. “If you become an expert on a smaller conference like the WAC, you have a good chance to beat the house because sports book operators do not have the time or resources to follow this conference the way you can. These books change their numbers according to the betting patterns of their customers, so it is not entirely uncommon to find two or three point differences in the lines.”

4. Shop For Numbers – “Another important aspect of betting on football is shopping for the best number,” Moseman explains. Bet at the Right Time – “The sharp bettors tend to bet underdogs, and they tend to bet them early,” Moseman says. If you like an underdog, it is best to get your bet in as late as possible, where there is heavy action from squares on favorites.

6.

Even Hollywood is not immune – think Two for the Money with Al Pacino and Matthew McConaughey.

3.

Moseman agrees and especially likes home underdogs. “There will be more discrepancy in the numbers at different sports books. “Squares usually bet later in the week and they tend to pick the favorites

High school, College and Professional Football

However in the 1970′s NFL began to schedule one game every Monday and in 2006, games are scheduled on Thursdays and on Saturdays at the end of the season. It has been a tradition in the United States to play high school football games, college games and professional games on Friday, Saturday and Sunday respectively. There is also the United Football League with only 5 teams and several other semi-professional football leagues like women’s semi-professional football, and indoor football leagues are also played all throughout the country. This is also the reason why football teams very seldom play more than one game in a week. In high school football, the teams generally play only with the other teams in the same state. When not busy with football practice at the filed, he would usually spend most of his time playing first person shooting videogames such as call of duty, halo or even battlefield.. Early professional teams also shared the same field with baseball teams which is the reason why the end of the baseball season marks the start of the football season.

The major forms of football in the United States are high school football, college football and professional football. He considers Steven Heyer of the Raiders as one of his football idols. The said schools play at the NCAA’s divisional system with four divisions: Division I Bowl Subdivision, Division I Championship Subdivision, Division II and Division III. Playoffs for NFL is held until January while the Super Bowl is usually played in the first week of February, thus covering a wide range of weather conditions, from the heat and humidity of late summer, to the cold winds and snow in mid-winter. The Division I Bowl Subdivision which is the largest among the aforementioned divisions does not have a structured tournament to be able to determine its national champion; hence the teams are requested to play in numerous post-season bowl games. Steven Heyer started his professional football career in 2007 as part of Washington Redskins. Traditionally, football is an autumn sport which typically starts in mid-to-late August until January.

Eligible college football players are selected by NFL teams during the NFL Drafts usually held in April.

One of the players in the NFL is Steven Heyer. Majority of the colleges and universities in the United States have their own football teams and college football is administered by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). In 2011, he played for the Oakland Raiders and currently he is a part of the New York Jets team.

The National Football League comprised of 32 teams is the highest major professional league in the United States. Compared to other popular sports in the United States, American football seasons are typically far shorter because of its toll on the human body.

Using Reverse Line Movement To Win

Thus, following reverse line movements is the same thing a following the smart money. We tracked the top five books for each of the pointspread sports for the last two years, as as you can see, this strategy has been profitable in every sport. Last year was a good RLM season for NFL sports betting (45-29, 60.8 percent, +11.91), but two sportsbooks that were in the top five in NFL RLM in both seasons.

So what exactly is reverse line movement? RLM takes place when a large majority of bets are on one team, yet the line moves in the opposite direction. Note that these records are for sides only and do not include totals.

The NFL sports betting is generally considered the toughest sport to beat, yet blindly following this method produced an exceptional 59.2 percent win rate last season, improving the two year record to 328-249-12, 56.8 percent, +59.06 units. Keep an eyes on the top five sportsbooks at Sports Insights though, as NCAAF sports betting has been very liquid in that regard, with only one sportsbook (believe it or not, Bodog) finishing in the top five both years.

To back this up, our friends over at Prosportsonline.net have tracked the records for games where over 60 percent of the public has been on one side, yet there was reverse line movement of at least one full point from the opening number at the top sportsbooks in NFL, NCAAF, NBA and NCAAB. The records quoted below are based on the bets being made at the triggering books, so beating the move by a half-point or a few cents now and then would actually make your record even better.

Also, games where over 60 percent of the public are on one side, yet there is reverse line movement of at least 10 cents on the Money Line from the opening number at the top five sportsbooks in MLB and NHL sports betting has also been profitable. It should be noted that many fewer MLB games have qualified so far this season (is the whole world using RLM now?), but smaller profits is still profit.Again, these records are for Money Lines only and do not include totals.Finally, NHL sports betting has picked up 148.49 units in two years, and unlike MLB, NHL had four sportsbooks out of the top five gain double-digit units this past season. This would make Miami +6 the RLM play.

So what causes RLM when the aim of most sportsbooks is to get as close to balanced action on both sides as possible? The answer to this is quite simple: the sharp bettors; the one’s who give sports betting advice. To illustrate, let us say that San Diego Chargers open at -7 over the Miami Dolohins, and over 70 percent of the sports bets placed on the game are on San Diego. Furthermore, they list the RLM records for many individual sportsbook, making it easy to spot which books this system is working at and which books it may be best to ignore.. RLM takes place when more money/ sportsbook picks are bet by the small percentage of bettors that are on the unpopular side (the sharps) than is bet by the huge majority of players betting the popular side (the squares). Another important recommendation is to use a slow moving (but reliable) sportsbook.

The proper way to make a sports bet using reverse line movement is to place your bet as soon as there is an RLM of one full point (or 10 cents in MLB and NHL) off of the opening line. Keep in mind that NCAAB was the most liquid sport in terms of top-five sportbooks however, with not a single sportsbook making the top five both years. However, instead of the line rising as you might expect, it instead drops to Chargers -6. Quite a few RLM followers watch the moves until almost game time, and then bet accordingly. This is where an important word of caution is in order though. This may enable you to get the stale more favorable sports betting line at the time the reverse line movement hits at the triggering Sportsbook. All of this will be fun to follow (not to mention profitable) when every sport except baseball are going on simultaneously during the winter months.

The highest two-year winning percentage using RLM from the top five books belongs to College Football, which went 480-341-10, 58.5 percent, +95.10 units. Keep a close eye on Canbet here, as that Australian sportsbook cracked the top five both years.

Article Directory: http://www.articledashboard.com

College Basketball sports betting was not too shabby either, with a two-year mark of 492-356-22, 58.0 percent, +91.96 units. The huge problem with this is that the nfl line, ncaaf line or nhl line may have moved too much by that time, and all of the value has been sucked out of the unpopular side.

By: Manny G

NBA sports betting has the lowest two-year five-book RLM winning percentage among the 11/10 sports, but then again, every gambler in the world would kill to go 382-301-9, 55.9 percent, +48.90 units, and the 57.5 percent win rate this past season is nothing to sneeze at. Carib ruled the roost season at 93-66-9, 58.5 percent, +18.55 units after ABC held the penthouse spot in the 2007-08 season.

Now do the sharps win every single time? Absolutely not! However, they are right more often than they are wrong, so being on the same side as the sharps is a prudent strategy over the long run, and again, the best thing is that there in absolutely no conventional sports handicapping necessary..

So what we recommend is to only use the top five each season for each individual sport (in terms of units won). Sure, using this approach leaves open the possibility of the line turning around and moving back against you, but as you will see in bit, betting as soon as an RLM qualifies has been profitable in every major North American sport such as the last two seasons, so if one line turns around, so be it

Weight Training for Wrestling by Dickie White

While there are some similarities, football players should be more focused on developing absolute strength, whereas wrestlers should focus their weight training on relative strength and power (strength per bodyweight).

The other day I was fortunate enough to have former Cornell Wrestling Strength Coach, Tom Dilliplane, send me a copy of his 16-week summer program. Yes, those YouTube videos of someone performing a cool looking exercise with a big tire look cool. There are two major issues that I’ve seen with weight training for wrestling programs in my years of experience.

Please note that Tom bases all of his core movements (Squat, Bench, Clean, Deadlift, etc.) off of percentages of your max. These percentages and 2 more weeks of this program are included as one of 4 free gifts for signing up for my newsletter at http://www.wrestler-power.com. In addition, Tom used similar types of programs for the 10+ years he was at Cornell working with the wrestlers.

As the sport of wrestling continues to grow (with at least some thanks going to the increasing popularity of MMA), weight training for wrestling has become a very sought after. This is the exact program he used over the summer of 2009, the summer before Cornell placed 2nd at Nationals and had 2 National Finalists. While some would say the program looked boring and repetitive (you would not believe the repetition of such exercises as the Bench Press, Squats, High Pulls, Weighted Pullups, and other exercises that many may consider to be plain and boring but obviously get the job done) the fact of the matter is this- it works. While I do believe that these are great ways to bridge the gap between traditional weight room strength and functional wrestling strength (I use them myself often with my wrestlers), I also understand that a majority of wrestlers reading this article do not have access to this type of equipment. “Hardcore” equipment like this exists at underground gyms and training facilities and if you’re a member of one of those, there’s a good chance you already have someone helping you with your training. would be using them already? Anyway, that’s enough, lets get into some weight training for wrestling plans.

Second, there are a few systems and programs that are available that are absolutely fantastic. Look at all the infomercials out there for the “next biggest thing in fat loss” or whatever. And that should be the same way you approach yourweight training for wrestling. But believe me, this isn’t the focus of the weight training for wrestling plans I have my wrestlers use. Additionally, I think it’s worth considering the fact that if these new age styles of training were so groundbreaking and effective, don’t you think all the big wrestling schools like Iowa, Cornell, Iowa State, etc. Oftentimes people are after the next greatest thing. I know, I post them from time to time. Sticking to the tried and true barbell and dumbbell exercises that have withstood the test of time is what’s going to lead to the best results with your weight training for wrestling plan. However these weight training for wrestling plans consist of exercises with sandbags, kettlebells, tires, kegs, thick reps, and a lot of other training tools that most wrestler don’t have access to. As wrestlers we know the truth- nothing replaces good old fashioned hard work

Baseball Hitting Drills – Tips and Drills For Using Hitting Stick Trainers by Nick Dixon

Check to make sure the batter is using proper grip, stance and stride mechanics.

The key to proper use of any hand-held batting device is KNOWING AND USING THE CORRECT ANGLE FOR THE DRILL YOU ARE DOING! If you do not direct or point the ball at the proper angle, the batter will always make poor contact. Second, the holder must stand at the proper angle to the batter and direct the ball at the correct angle to the batter. The ball should be positioned slightly in front of the batters front foot. The unit is portable and requires no setup. HIP TURNER LOCATION – The holder stands slightly behind the batter directing the ball at the batter’s bat pocket. MIDDLE STRIKE CONTACT – The holder will move around a couple more feet. Make sure that the hitting area is safe with no one within 15 feet of the holder or the batter.

2. The batter should attack the inside strike earlier to keep from getting jammed.

1. Positive reinforcement should be given when the batter makes good solid contact.

As the inventor of the HitnStik*, Hit2win Trainer^, and SKLZ Target+ Trainer, I sometimes cringe when I see someone using the product incorrectly. You can learn to hit without having to chase, pick-up or retrieve a single ball. All of these are handheld units. The purpose of these swings is to make the batter use the hips as the batter turns and hits the ball. This simple rule insures that proper bat-to-ball contact is made. The batter does not move. All of these baseball trainers basically work and perform the same. Make sure that the batter is swinging in a direction that is free of persons should the batter lose the grip on the bat.

Coaching Points:

8. This high speed training machine is 100% Guaranteed to raise Batting Averages and has a full year warranty.

3. It is welcomed in complexes and parks because it allows safe pre-game warm-up, requires little space, and does not damage fences. The height of the ball should be raised and lowered in the strike zone to give the batter swings at both high and low strikes.

1. +SKLZ Target is a registered trademark of Pro Performance Sports.

4. It is important to know the proper angles when using this product.

3. This is what I call “coning out”.

6. ^Hit2win is a registered trademark of Nedco Sports Products. The batter may have to take a slight inward step with the front foot to properly execute this swing.

9. You should not move the ball when using these trainers. Make sure the ball is directed at the batter’s back foot.

Baseball Hitting Drills – Tips and Drills For Using Hitting Stick Trainers

 by: Nick Dixon

The holder changes location and height and allows the batter to take 6 swings at each location. If the angle is wrong, the end of the bat will hit behind the ball and the bat will never actually touch the ball. Make sure the batter does not over stride.

The batter takes 5 swings at 5 different ball locations. The holder will change the location of the ball by moving.

The popularity come from the benefits they offer the baseball player, baseball coach, and the baseball parent. The holder should make sure that the trainer safety strap is used to prevent the holder from losing their grip on the trainer when the batter hits the ball.

The http://BaseballCoachingDigest.com has a great selection of BASEBALL COACHING and TRAINING ARTICLES. First, the product is to be used as a “still” ball trainer. The ball should be positioned at a location inside the batters front foot. The ball should be at a location just inside the batters back foot. Then later came other versions including the Hit2win Trainer^ and the SKLZ Target Trainer. Allowing the ball to pass inside the front foot allows the batter to use the front foot and leg as a anchor and leverage to generate a more powerful swing.

2. Check out the Bat Action Hitting Machine baseball pitching simulator at http://BatAction.com. The first thing to remember is that the holder should always direct the rod and ball toward the hitter’s back foot.

4. Remember to direct the ball toward the belly button or back foot of the batter.

5. The batter will drive the bat through the box. Every player on the team can take 30 warm-up swings each in less than 10 minutes.

There are many versions of the “ball-on-a-rod” trainer. This teaches the batter to allow the ball down the middle to get inside the front foot so that maximum power can be generated during the swing. The ball hit is on the middle 3rd of the plate. They have different names but they all are great trainers to teach and train young players
