Morning Coffee and Sports Betting with Bob | June 1st, 2022

Sports betting is an activity in which people place a wager on a specific outcome of a sporting event. The frequency of betting on sports varies greatly from culture to culture, but it generally involves placing bets on football, basketball, baseball, hockey, track cycling, auto racing, and reality TV contests. Outside of traditional sporting events, sports betting has also reached other realms, such as underground cockfighting and horse and greyhound racing.

While betting on NFL games can be challenging, there are a few strategies that can make for profitable bets. First, be aware that NFL projections don’t always match up with the teams’ speed. For example, a game involving the Ravens and Browns last season had a 50.5 point total, which is very low considering that the teams are slow-moving. Therefore, it would be better to take the Under. The Over requires that the game remain close. Teams with double-digit leads will likely try to slow the game down, resulting in longer drives and fewer points.

Second, know what the betting lines mean. Over/under bets are popular due to the potential for huge profits if you can track line movement. If the masses are betting on one team, then the odds will move against them. That’s good news for sharp bettors. This can mean a higher payout and more money in your pocket! When betting on football games, the over/under line can be a great way to increase your chances of winning.
