Online Poker Games – Game Point And Advantage

A game which has rules is an online poker game, where each game has a specific set of rules that differ between every casino on the net or website’s setting. The main attraction of an online poker match as the most-played game is because rules can vary slightly between one place and another, and yet it will still follow the main guidelines which allow everyone to feel comfortable with the game along with its guidelines to play.

But, there must be an accepted bunch of rules which each of the players may refer to if confusion sets in. This is why free tutorials have been made available on the net along with books on how to go about playing an online poker game. Offering the player instructions about how to play the game is what these books do, either online or real life. These tutorials provide tips to beat the opponent, when you must risk your cards and when you should hold them.

Poker games online are always so popular. Why is it so? Poker games on the net help the beginners learn to play the game in their own speed with the free software. If they think they are game to playing with others, online poker websites are the thing for them. Online poker games allow novices to gamble as little as 1¢ with free poker rolls to anyone who enter into the table without fee. The attractions in online game rooms are that players need not feel all that pressure from the rest of the players to perform without committing mistakes.

Playing poker games online will hone your probability skills, improve computing capabilities, propagates social inter reaction and teaches one how to play well. The type of players that the casino casts out (novices), the poker that?s online embraces. That is the main reason for the online poker to be one of the largest collectors of revenue from online casinos.

Despite all the benefits provided by online poker, a chief concern is

Like the professional casinos at Las Vegas, a watchful eye is present before each poker room. This “eye” checks for illegitimacy. Online poker games’ security checks out the IP address that belongs to a computer unit to confirm that not more than one unit play the game; thereby illegitimate game play is avoided.

Mainstream poker sites get players hooked by conducting tournaments. The winners of the poker tournament get a chance to try out real poker in casinos that host the programme. Tournaments may make players play at the World Series Poker Championship Games. Better your skills more are the chances of you winning a prize. As far as test of skills is concerned, these poker websites make it possible to play with real masters of the game.

Because of all these advantages, it isn’t a surprise that poker on the net is a successful business. But being a champion varies in the real world. Real poker can distract you when you are playing. The acclaimed “poker face” must be perfected before an online poker player can take on real poker. Online poker does not teach us that.

Apart from misleading your counterpart physically; there is no difference between playing on the net or playing a real game of poker. poker on the net and the real game are about betting cash.

The main advantage in playing poker online is the absence of intimidating opponents. Because you are new to the game, it helps to not have opponents present as it helps you improve your skills.

After you have become comfortable with the game play, you may sign up with various websites to play the game. Your first game can be quite challenging especially if you haven’t got the hang of it yet. Although, you will get better at the game when other players play and everything becomes clearer.

But the only thing that remains unchanged in any poker game is the prevalence of addiction in any form of gambling. The game revolves around taking risks, playing with guts and paying due attention for your skills and ultimately winning once or twice.

Even then it’s still the poker games online that attract novices everyday. The internet destroys all barriers of space, time and race; in this world, there is no better feeling than to win at the game!

The Definitive Art of Bookmaking and Odds Compiling

To appreciate the Job of the Bookmaker we must first dissect the methods and criteria to which he lends himself.

He must create or compile the Odds of each and every horse race on every race card. Every single day.

This is a very difficult Job and mistakes are often made.

So in order to gain an edge when betting we need to find any faults or mistakes that may occur during the compiling process.

The complete process of compiling will be known as creating “The Book”.

This will be addressed in the following 9 stages.

Understanding the numbers is vital to anyone serious about betting to win!

This will be outlined in the following nine stages-

The Odds

The Fractions

The Percentages

The Decimals

The probability

The value

The Margins

The predicted chance of success

Compiling the Book

Stage 1

Let us start with the Odds

There are two types of odds

Absolute odds and indefinite odds

To distinguish between the two-

Absolute odds are the toss of a coin is 50/50 or Evens

Therefore you have a 50% chance of it being Heads and a 50% chance of it being Tails

Now if I was to offer you 5/1 for it being Heads this would be known as indefinite odds, an enticer or a teaser if you like!

Basically all bookmakers offer indefinite odds that are unbalanced and designed to entice

This is where they incorporate the Margin/the over round / the over broke or spread

Two Sides two every coin

For every bet there is a need for two parties to have different opinions of a betting outcome

For the purpose of this exercise these will be known as

Party A. (the Bookmaker/layer. Or he who offers the odds)

And

Party B. (the Backer/the bettor or he who takes the odds)

There are also two sides to the actual odds

These are known as odds on and odds against

What this basically means is that if party A Offers 2/1 and Party B. Accepts those odds

Then

Party A will have odds of 1/ 2 and Party B will have odds of 2/ 1

This works with “odds on” equations to.

For example-

The- “odds on” Wager offered by party A. Maybe 1/6

In this case party B will take the odds of 1/6 and party A would secure himself odds of 6/1 + His/hers profit Margin.

(This profit Margin is known as the over round. The over broke. The spread or just profit margin)

Now for a bookmaker to guarantee himself overall profit he must apply a simple rule known as “odds coupling.

Odds coupling

This is always applied when compiling a book for any individual event

So realistically the odds on offer are indefinite, you would not get 1/3 for party B opposing 3/1 for party A

Basically “Odds coupling” is when the odds are slightly disproportionate to each other when compiling both sides of probability to a bet

This can easily be recognised when betting on betting exchanges where the layside may offer 5.4 and the back side may offer 4.9

(Not the same/disproportioned odds)

What this means is that if party B is getting 4/ 1 then party B must adjust his odds when compiling to incorporate a small percentage of profit for his/her book ( The over round )

This is where we need to convert the odds from fractions into percentages and then back to fractions again.

So let us say we have odds of 3/1

This tells us that there are 4 parts to this bet (3/1 is the same as 3+1 when betting)

Now what this tells us is that Party A has 3 chances in 4 of winning

And party B only has 1 chance in 4 of winning

Therefore if we convert these odds to percentages

Party A has a 75% chance of winning opposed to Party B who only has a 25% chance of winning)

Now to ensure the bookmaker or party A incorporates is over round or profit margin he must at least adjust his percentage to 76% this would give him a 1% Margin on the Spread or 76%/25%

So effectively odds of 3/1 will not be coupled with 1/ 3 when making the book. Instead the odds may appear more like this

Party B would use the odds of 2/7 instead of 1/3 because this will allow him a 77.52% profit ratio if he wins

And party B on the other side of the odds would be 3/1 allowing him a probability of 25% as a winning chance according to the odds on offer to him

As you can see Party A has incorporated this margin on just one horse if he did this in a ten horse race he would have created an over round of 25.2% this is made up of the odd 2.52% he has added to each selection by disproportioning the opposing odds

Therefore the definition of odds coupling is to disproportionate opposing odds from the layers side Party A.

Opposed to proportioned odds on the backers side /Party B

Stage 2

The Fractions

The Fractions are quite simply percentages and Decimals written in a different form

Again there are two sides to a bet

Party A.The Bookmaker/layer

Party B. The backer

If the odds were absolute or real, a table of odds would look something like this

Bookmaker Backer

1/3 3/1

75% chance of winning 25% chance of winning

In an odd’s on wager the tables would be the other way round

Bookmaker Backer

3/1 1/3

25% chance of winning 75% chance of winning

Stage 3

The percentages

The percentages are the same as Fractions and Decimals also written in a different form

Bookmaker Backer

75% chance of winning 25% chance of winning

1/3 3/1

Etc…

Stage 4

The Decimals

Decimal odds are a simpler way of working out the odds and don’t give you a headache every time you want to place a bet.

Do you know the difference between 2/9 and 4/7?

No? Well, not many people do. But with decimals you’d know instantly.

So, how do decimal odds work? Well, if the decimal odds are 4.4 and you place a back bet of £10 and win, your total return is £10 x 4.4 = £44.(less any commissions that may be added by the betting exchange or bookmaker)

This is equivalent to a traditional price of 7/2

The key part to remember is that decimal odds always include the unit stake – thus every price you see on Betfair will be >1.

Example-

Fractional odds represent the profit – 5/1 means you will win five pounds for every one pound staked. And odds of 5/1 will shown as 5+1 the (unit stake) thus showing 6.0 as the equivalent odds

Likewise odds of 7/2 are calculated as follows 7 divided by 2=3.5 plus the unit stake >1 now equates to 4.5

So 7/2 is 3.5 + 1 which equals 4.5

This may take some time to come to terms with but in the meantime you can go to the “Betfair” website and use there odds converter tool absolutely free

You’ll be up to par in no time!

Also once you can calculate fractions to decimals it makes working out predicted percentage much easier

Example-

Odds of 5/2 are converted to percentages as follows

5 divided by 2 =2.5

Now divide into 100 (100%)

This equals 100/2.5 = 40

Therefore 5/2 represents a predicted 40% of that bet winning if the odds are absolute or real

Stage 5

The Probabilities

This is the biggest illusion when betting on horse racing

Why?

Firstly every horse in a race as some chance of winning

Therefore we must assume that all horses start off on a level playing field and thereafter a book is compiled by the odds compiler or bookmaker to create an in-balance

Some selections will be judged to have a greater chance and some to have a lesser chance of winning and therefore odds will fluctuate across the book

Shorter odds will be offered to selections that are deemed to be a better choice when predicting a winner

And longer odds for those expected to have less chance of winning

This is where the backer can obtain value in there betting!

Stage 6

Value

Definition: Obtaining a better price from the odds on offer than are predicted to be correct

In simple terms if the odd on offer are 3/1 then it is predicted that the selection has a 25% chance of winning

But what if the absolute or real chance of winning was 40%

Then the odds should actually be 5/2

(5 divided by 2 =2.5) (100% divided by 2.5 =40%)

If this was the case you would achieve odds of 3/1 which would return 3 times the stake placed from a bet that should only be returning 2.5 times your stake at 5/2

Also you have got higher odds for a 40% probability of winning opposed to the odds compilers prediction being that the selection of 3/1 should only give a winning chance of 25%

So therefore in this case providing the selection goes on to win

You would have gained some value!

Stage 7

The Margins

When a backer chooses his or hers selections he/she usually does this by reading or studying various items of form

Or a system based on some criteria

Or a tipster

What he/she often fails to account for when placing bets are-

The over round/over broke/ profit margins that are incorporated in the odds on offer or the spread as it is known

The following articles and example will simplify the structure of the book to enable the understanding of absolute or real percentages of the “Book”

Stage 8

The predicted chance of success

A great way evaluate your predicted chance of achieving a winning outcome is to use the following rule.

The rule is-

“Whatever you think, think the opposite”

Example of this rule is as follows-

If you are offered odds of 3/1 or 4.0 this means that you have a 1 in 4 chance of success provided that the odds are absolute

This equates to you having a 25% chance of success.

Apply the rule and. Think the opposite!

This means you have a 75% chance of losing

(which does not include the over round margin or spread)

All of a sudden the bet does not look so appealing, this is where we have to use our own judgement based on fact, form and analysis to allow you to decide whether or not you think the chance of winning is greater than predicted, for that selection

Stage 9

Compiling and creating “the book”

As a bookmaker.A knowledge of percentages is vital and for many learning these numbers will become second nature

In order for a bookmaker to secure a profit from the book the percentages for all runners combined must together equate to a number greater than 100%

Occasionally a bookmaker will compile or adjust odds to make the book under round or over broke in order to attract business (All runners combined equal less than 100%)

In doing so he puts is book at risk of potentially making a loss

However in most circumstance the book is over round

Example of this is shown in the following race compilation-

This is taken from a real race from Friday October 7th 2011

Totals=131%

True totals are ten horses with and average 10% per horse equal to-

100%

131% – 100% = 31% as the Over round or Spread or Profit Margin

Betting forecast- Evs Chelsea Mick, 3/1 Oblitereight, 13/2 Mr Fong, 7/1 Elmora, 10/1 Hi There, 12/1 Statementofintent, 25/1 King’s Future, 25/1 Path Finder, 25/1 Thecornishcowboy, 50/1 Tresabella

Thus- the over round here is 31% is achieved by the bookmaker for this race

In theory a backer who staked according to the percentage on every selection would stake 131 units. However whatever horse wins will only result in 100 units being returned. Therefore the bookmaker would make 31 units profit or 31%

This is generally how a book would look with an over round included in the Odds or prices!

Gaining and Keeping a Competitive Edge on Sport Betting

When it comes to sport betting, each player must be aware about the nonexistence of a certain kind of formula for winning. Unless the player chooses to involve in trickery, then there is really no given method to secure winnings. However, there is a way for every bettor to gain an advantage in this field. Although sport betting (by its very nature) is very reliant on chances, players can actually increase their chances of winning by getting a full grasp on the unfamiliar (or even unspoken) yet altogether important law in sports betting.

Instead of looking for that magic winning formula, it’s best for every bettor to keep in touch with reality and get ahead by knowing how the entire sport betting system works. Since there are only a limited number of people who know about this particular sport betting law, players who’ll take the time to understand this will definitely have an edge among the others.

Just in case you’re one of those bettors who want to gain an edge over other sports bettors, here’s what you need to know:

Sport betting (or even gambling in general) operates under a certain type of principle. However, this law simply operates in order to guarantee all casinos or any betting establishment to profit regardless of whether its players win or lose.

So how does this so called gambling law works in particular? Simple. The person in charge of coming up with the rules and odds of the game basically controls the outcome, and makes the money. However, it doesn’t necessarily have to be that way. Players can use their knowledge of this law to their advantage.

To get ahead of the game, bettors can seize control of the rules and odds by simply keeping track of the perfect timing to place a bet. Players increase their chances of winning by choosing to bet on the right situations and employing only the right wagering strategy. That’s basically all the player needs to do in order to get an edge over other players and the game books itself.

5 Tips to Stop You From a Gambling Addiction Relapse

Gambling addiction relapse is very common, especially during times of stress. There are many things that you can do to prevent yourself from a relapse from your gambling addiction. This list is far from complete, however, I believe that these are five strategies that have personally helped me from going back to the casino and pumping my heart-earned money back into a slot machine.

1. Pick up the phone and call a friend, family member, Gambling Hotline, or Gamblers Anonymous member when the urge hits. Usually when we have an urge to gamble we are really looking for some nurturing from those who love us. Sometimes just a conversation with someone who cares can help your gambling urge pass.

2. Try to find something constructive to do such as taking a walk, creating a new recipe, or even going to the mall or bookstore. Try to do something fun and stimulating since this will be replacing the gambling activity that you are trying to stop yourself from engaging in. Fill the void.. with something to keep you busy.

3. Get out a pencil and paper and write down what it felt like when you were driving home from the casino broke, despondent, angry, and depressed. Describe these feelings in detail. You will start to feel those horrible feelings by just writing these down.

4. Visualize in your mind the drive back from the casino. After writing, use this power of visualization to really experience those feelings. Spend a minute or two doing this. After writing down your thoughts and feelings, and then visualizing these, you will truly experience the physiological feelings of the drive back from the casino or other gambling venue. You will not feel good.. trust me.

5. Reward yourself for not gambling. Buy yourself a small gift or a book. Rent a movie and enjoy your time away from gambling. You will feel uplifted and proud of yourself for not giving into your gambling addiction impulse.

Tokyo Tango by Rika Yokomori Book Review

Saya is a classically beautiful Japanese girl of nineteen. She has no difficulty attracting men of all ages, and is happy to give them what they want. Sometimes they pay, sometimes not, though she doesn’t particularly like any of them, and as for love, does that really exist?

Then she meets Bogey.

He’s a middle-aged forty-something with a paunch and greying hair who fancies himself as something of a yakuza, a gangster. He makes his living through gambling, wagering on anything late into the night, mahjong, the horses, bicycle riding, and the super-hot boiling over stockmarket where everybody always wins. He adores gangster movies and hanging round with the rough crowd. Saya is bedazzled by Bogey, he’s known as that because of his love of Bogart’s movies. She’s fascinated by his weird selection of friends and is flattered by the attention of an older man, especially one such as he. Inevitably she becomes his mistress without a moment’s hesitation.

‘Whatever you do, don’t go with a gambler,’ was the one piece of advice her mother gave her when it came to men. But when did a teenage girl ever take advice about men from her mother? Saya is no different. She jumps at the opportunity, she loves cuddling into his warm body and laying her head on his fat tummy, she will do anything he wants. She even buys a cookbook and attempts to cook him the food he loves, not that he is impressed by that, preferring to eat in the seedy underworld he inhabits.

So opens Rika Yokomori’s novel set in Japan and New York.

In places the book comes across almost as a reality TV programme. It is as if the camera is set permanently on Saya’s shoulder. She is rarely out of shot as we learn of the exciting parts of her life, and the mundane, almost in equal measure.

But this is a page turner as we watch Saya slowly growing into a worldly-wise woman. Gradually she begins to see things as they really are. Everything, as you might expect, is not so rosy in the life of a wannabe yakuza’s moll. There are sure to be rocky times ahead.

Rika Yokomori has published more than thirty-five books in the past fifteen years and this one is certainly worth a look. True, I did guess the ending some time before actually arriving there, but that was no big disappointment. There is a peach of a final sentence to look forward to. If you enjoy modern novels from Japan then you will find plenty here to keep you interested. If you haven’t tried oriental fiction before, then this one could be a good place to start.

Casino Gambling and The Tao

It may seem strange to equate casino gambling with Taoist philosophy, but it may be because gambling is so much a part of and widely accepted in Chinese culture.

The very first recorded history of playing cards date back to 9th century China which makes sense being that they were the inventors of writing paper. The first book written with reference to playing cards dates to the Tang Dynasty (618-907) called Yezi Gexi. By the 11th century playing cards could be found throughout Asia featuring many of the 108 heroes of Lan Shun found in the Chinese classic the “Water Margin.”

In the 16th century playing cards had made their way to France and it is there that they began using the suits of picture cards that we are familiar with today based on figures of French nobility.

Taoist philosophy is said to be nearly 6,000 years old and came to prominence with the teachings of The Yellow Emperor, Huang Ti, the first emperor of China. With many of their scientific discoveries such as mathematics and astronomy, there was also a deep connection to astrology, symbology (a science of symbols and their effects), numerology and many forms of mysticism.

In the 7th Pillar of Taoism, “The Tao of Mastery,” The symbol for water is K’AN and states, “to be successful and fortunate, risk must be taken.” Luck to the ancient Taoists was a form of control and timing.

Clearly in all gambling, timing is an important factor. Regardless of the type of gambling, all of it’s forms tend to run in cycles, both winning and losing ones. It is the skill which one navigates through these cycles that the player conveys their level of control over the outcome.

The first serious studies of gambling in the 20th century were done by economists who expressed their confusion that gambling is a losing proposition and in effect, irrational behavior. In 1945 William Vickery, a noted economist, concluded that gambling should be measured not in expected gains but by the money a gambler doesn’t have that appears to be more valuable to them than what he does have.

The typical view is that gambling is self-destructive, undermines the work ethic and removes money that could be put to better uses in the economy. The notion that most people tend to gamble beyond their means remains unproven and was disputed in research conducted in 1966 in the “Economics of Gambling” published in London, England. In this study it was found to be an affective outlet for frustration, a relief from loneliness and a leveler of inequality among the economic classes.

Many psychologists view gambling as a normal form of recreation and destructive only to the addicted. They stated that the solution lies in treating the gambler, not in the condemnation of gambling as a whole.

The casino patron is courted with opulent surroundings, swimming pools, shops, shows, night life and “comped” amenities. The attraction is undeniable as an escape from tedious and purposeless occupations. Being confronted with the myth of success, when faced with insurmountable economic and social obstacles, makes the whole casino experience much easier to understand.

My own opinion is that people who gamble solely for the thrills and excitement, with no care of the economic results, would do better to find a more fulfilling and less expensive hobby. Gambling is an isolated activity. It will not take the place of a meaningful relationship nor will it counteract feelings of alienation or loneliness. These are not reasons to gamble.

Using any type of gambling to fill a void in ones personal life, something which it cannot do, is the type of gambling that can lead to devastating consequences.

If you’ve ever been in a casino, there is one thing you’ve probably noticed more than anything else… that one thing is seeing people lose money. This happens because the amateur gambler enters into this competition without a basic knowledge of the odds of the games, a playing strategy or even a thought to proper money management. It’s a careless way to handle ones money and does little to change the inevitable outcome.

Casinos love this type of gambler and spend a fortune attracting their business. With the odds squarely in their favor, the casino operators know that even though there are highly effective methods of playing that can shift those odds to the player, very few of them will invest the time or effort to use them.

Common sense tells us that if everyone that gambles in casinos lost, they would cease to exist. In order to attract losers you must have winners and it is just as easy to win at many casino games as it is to lose.

I do not write for the weekend gamblers who are looking desperately to have a good time at any cost. Winning is not even in their vocabulary. They consider the possibility of winning to be remote as if being left completely to chance.

It is the individual who is determined to win at any cost that I feel are most like myself. It is to these individuals that I offer the following. There does exist many ways to achieve your goal. Resolve that you will learn everything you have to in order to win consistently when risking your hard earned money gambling in casinos. To me, nothing else makes sense.

In the words of the ancient Taoist, Lao Tse

“Fortune favors the prepared.”

What is a Circled Game Mean in a Sports Betting Event?

Visitors to Las Vegas or online sportsbooks may come across some games on the betting board that will have special rules attached in the betting. Such games will be circled on the betting board. A red box means that the line is “circled” and subject to reduced betting limits.

Often time’s sportsbooks will circle games on the betting board due to injuries to impact players. NFL teams competing on Sunday’s must submit their injury reports on Friday and provide updates on Saturday. In recent years the NFL adopted a rule forcing teams to disclose on Wednesday through Friday who missed practice and who had limited work during practice. The best practice for sports betting professionals would be to browse individual team websites that post the injury and practice information about the health of their players.

The injury reports have been very accurate in recent years because the NFL wants to protect the integrity of the league because inside information on injuries could be exploited. So teams have been very forthcoming about the health of their players. Injuries to impact players like the starting quarterback, running back and impact wide receivers will cause Las Vegas and online sportsbook to circle the game on the sports betting board until their status come game time is determined. Sharp sports bettors follow the best practice of shopping individual sports books to shop for the odds that are best set on the side they want to bet on.

Sometimes Las Vegas or online sportsbooks may miss important injury information on teams and a smart bettor may bet into a good betting number that favors the bettor. Professional gamblers look for knee, foot and ankle injuries to running backs. A running back who is not 100% healthy and playing with ankle, foot or knee injuries will see their average yards per carry often fall well below their average. This puts the offense in second and third and long situations or what is known as obvious passing situations. Defenses who know the pass is coming can adjust into pass coverage creating less space for the wide receivers to run routes making a pass completion by the quarterback much more difficult which raises the possibility of a turnover. With a capable back up running back it is often better for a team to not play a running back that sports ankle, knee or foot injuries. Many professional sports bettors will look to play against a team who is starting an impact running back who is playing with an ankle, foot or knee injury.

If inclement weather is forecasted for the site of an outdoor game a sportsbook will circle the game and bettors will have betting limits reduced on the game up until about an hour until game time. Wind can factor greatly in the passing game and the best practice for professional sports bettors will look to play under in college and pro football if the betting line has not already been bet down. There are times when the professional has the inclement weather information before the Las Vegas or online sportsbook and this is a scenario when they make advantage bets.

Many sports bettors will find NBA games circled on the Las Vegas or online sports betting board. Often times an NBA team will report a mild ailment from a player in their rotation and list them as questionable or doubtful. Smart betting professionals will tune into NBA team’s pregame show 30 minutes prior to the start of the game to get specific injury information about teams impact players on their rotation. In the NBA if an impact player is lost to injury the replacement player will often step up and the team will have point spread success in the first game the team plays without their impact player in the lineup.

A line may be circled when factors other than game play (e.g., injuries or weather conditions) could affect the outcome of the game. As many bookmakers don’t have enough information on the game and can’t accurately balance the action as it comes in, circled lines can’t be added to a parlay. Some online or Las Vegas sportsbooks may have too much action on one side of the game and even with a line move they cant attract action on the other team. Most sportsbook business models are set to attempt to balance trade on all games and protect their bottom line. Most sportsbooks try to attempt to have all of their lines un-circled. The red box may be removed closer to the start of the game.

Tips On How To Win Consistently While Betting Football

Even if you win 55% of your bets, you will come out consistently ahead. This is, however, easier said than done and involves more than just a little reading and checking the injury reports. If Paul the octopus picked every winner in the recent soccer World Cup, picking winning football teams should be just as easy, right? Wrong. If it were that easy, lots of people would be making money and the sports books would have to go out of business. If winning at football betting involves some knowledge, some strategy and, let us face it, a dash of luck, it is because the bookmakers set very tight lines for the games. However, if you keep the following tips in mind, it should improve your chances of winning.

Bet as early as you can. Many of the sports books post their lines as early as they can and some offshore books do this by Sunday afternoon for the following week’s games. If you find a game and odds that you like make sure that there are no serious injury problems for the team that you pick. Bookmakers are not perfect and can make mistakes in setting the line. Pounce early before heavy betting irons out the mistakes.

Concentrate on a few teams. Because knowledge is important, if you concentrate on a few teams, you can build up a substantial amount of knowledge which you can use in making your bets. Also limit your betting to just a few games every Sunday.

Avoid heavy favorites. The crowd loves favorites and will rush to bet on them. However, they are not good choices if you want to maintain your 55% average in winning bets. Even if you do win a few, the payouts will be small. The best strategy is to bet on short priced underdogs because, when you win, you generally make more than you have bet.

Use totals judiciously. Totals set early in the week are generally based on predictions of good weather. In late season games, rain or snow sometimes affects the scoring and a heavy wind almost always keeps scoring down. In these conditions, you would do well by betting the Under

Use yards per play ranking. One method of evaluating teams is to look at the offensive yards gained per play and the defensive yards given away per play. Teams that gain more than they lose end up winning more games. The statistics are easily available and you can calculate the difference with a positive difference being an advantage. The rule of thumb to calculate a points spread from the yardage differential is that every 0.15 yards is worth one point. A differential of 0.60 yards between the two teams is worth four points. As with all betting tools, use your other data and information to confirm your findings.

Don’t avoid teasers. There is a common perception that teasers are a rip-off and therefore best avoided. Under certain circumstances, an NFL teaser which is a two-game parlay bet can make sense.

Pay attention to the injury reports. Read the injury reports carefully to determine what difference it is going to make to the performance of your chosen team. Do not just look at key players because all the guys in the team have to perform at their peak.
