BOOSTING PROFITS ON FREE SPORTS PICKS

Boosting Profits on Free Sports Picks
by Website Staff

Although blindly following a good handicappers free sports picks can be profitable it is possible to boost net profits with very little effort on the sports bettors behalf.

Line Shopping

The method is a simple and one that every serious sports bettor uses. In fact most people do something very similar everyday. It is bargain shopping or getting the best price and you should be doing the same thing every time you place a bet.

You may surprised how widely sports betting odds can vary from sportsbook to sportsbook. At first thought getting an extra half point on your football wager may not seem like much of a benefit but over the long haul it will add up to increased profits.

If you have just one sportsbook account you are missing out on extra income that takes very little effort to acquire. Take the time to open accounts at a minimum of three sportsbooks dividing your bankroll among them.

Buying the 1/2 Point

Another technique used by professional sports bettors is buying a half point on or off of key numbers. A key number is any pointspread where there is a relatively high chance of the bet ending in a push.

The best example of this is a pointspread of 3.0 on an NFL game. In this situation the sports bettors would pay more than the standard juice to buy down to -2.5 when wagering on the favorite or buy up to +3.5 when wagering on the underdog. In this case if the favorite wins by exactly 3.0 the bettor will win their bet regardless if they wagered on the favorite or the underdog.

The half point chart shows you when it is advantageous to buy on or off of a specific pointspread for pro and college football and basketball.
