Sports Betting Systems and Strategies

The college and pro football seasons have begun and everybody is looking for a sports betting system that will make them money.  Unfortunately, like most other casino games there is no sports betting system that will guarantee you victory.  However, there are some sports betting strategies that you can follow.  Here are a few:

  • Leave Your Fan Card at Home:

Stop betting on games because it’s your favorite team or you’re going to watch it on TV. That type of sports betting is for “rookies.” If you’re betting on a team every week because it’s your favorite team or you’re going to be at the game, don’t expect to win. You may think you can objectively evaluate the game, but anytime you have some type of rooting interest it’s difficult to asses without bias. Your favorite team should be any team that can make you money.

  • Fight For Every 1/2 Point You Can Get:

Fight for every 1/2 point. Many times early in the week a bettor will see a game they like, but not have the money to bet on it or they want to see how they do on the rest of their bets.  They wait all week while other bettors spot the same weakness in the line, but they make their bets.  By the end of the week the line has moved from -3 to -4.5.  The bettor still feels like it’s a good bet, places the bet and the team wins by 4.  You see it all the time.  When you find a line you like jump on it, unless it is moving in your favor.

  • “Middle” Games:

One of the best ways to get an advantage is when you can “middle” a game.  Let’s say the Patriots are playing the Chiefs at home next week and the line opens at -9.5.  Well, you think that’s a steal at -9.5 so you place your bet.  However, on Wed. in practice the Chiefs starting quarterback blows out his knee.  All of a sudden the line moves from -9.5 to -14.5.  This would be a perfect opportunity to “middle.”  You would place a second bet on the chiefs at +14.5.  This way the worst that can happen is you lose the 10% “vig” or “juice.” However, if the Patriots win by 10,11,12,13, or 14 you win BOTH bets.

Now, my example is a bit extreme to explain what “middling” is, but there are many times where the line will move 4+ points during the course of a week.  Keep your eyes open for good opportunities to apply this sports betting strategy, it is very important to your success if you intend to be a long-term winner betting on sports.  There are no sports betting systems that will make you fast easy money, but if you learn some legitimate sports betting strategies you may just have a chance against the “bookie.”

About Greg Elder

I was 37 years old, a husband and father, a former teacher, college and high school basketball coach, and a business owner, I decided to give it all up (Not the husband and father part) to take a shot at pro gambling. I was coming off a job I hated selling insurance, and I vowed to do something I was passionate about. For the next year I would spend 12-15 hours a day researching, studying, and practicing advantage gambling techniques. The goal was to see if I could sustain our current lifestyle as a professional gambler. I wanted to find out if casinos really could be beat. At the time, I thought it may be the biggest mistake of my life, but my intentions were to have fun trying. It has been an interesting few years since that journey began. My feature book GAMBLERS FIGHT BACK has been released and can be purchased on my author site at I would consider my pro gambling career to be a success on all fronts. I didn't win millions of dollars, but I was able to enjoy every minute of it. It brought an excitement and passion back into my professional life. It has helped lead me to a writing career that I had no idea I even wanted before this challenge. I was able to write a book that shared with others exactly what I learned along the way.. Gambling professionally is not easy, but there are certain things the average gambler can do to increase their chances of success tremendously. That's the information I try to pass along to my readers.
