Tennis Betting Systems
by Christopher G. Shepard - 10/05/2007
For Americans it's a time for the MLB playoffs, the NFL season is in full swing and the NHL and NBA are about to begin, not to mention all the college sports on any given Saturday. However, the marquee sports are not the only places you can realize a profit from sports investment. In fact, one of the more popular sports to wager on around the world is on the fuzzy round ball played between the alleys. Yes, I am talking about tennis. In this article I'll look at tennis betting systems with an approximate strike rate of 60 percent.

How to Play Proposition Bets
by David A. Lane - 09/20/2007
Most sports bettors are used to the typical offerings from sports books; you can bet on a side via the point spread or money line or you can bet whether the combined total from both teams will go over a set number. In the ultra-competitive sports betting industry bookies are always trying to outdo their competition, and the way most of them have gone about this is to offer an increasing variety of proposition bets to their wagering menu.

Futures Betting Tips
by Trevor Whenham - 09/19/2007
If you could predict the future you could be a very rich sports bettor. Even without a crystal ball, though, an astute bargain shopper can often find attractive potential profits through futures betting. Futures betting is pretty much what it sounds like - you bet before a season starts on how it is going to end. In the NFL, for example, you could bet on which team is going to win the Super Bowl, or the AFC or NFC, or even each division. The same goes for any of the other major sports, including NASCAR.

Parlay Bets a Bad Investment
by Gary Patrick Garry - 08/29/2007
"It's déjà vu all over again," to quote Yogi Berra, this and every football season in the Las Vegas sports books and bars. You see him everywhere, looking up at the board or the television, and then looking down at the stack of dead tickets that he holds in his cold, clammy hands. He grunts and groans unintelligibly, and then he makes a circle with his thumb and middle finger and flicks the tickets, hard, with his finger as he shakes his head and sighs.

How to Bet Round Robin Parlays
by Kevin Schweitzer - 08/12/2007
Raise your hand if you recognize this sequence of events: You've got $50 on a three-team NFL parlay. Your first two teams play early games and cover handily. Your third team plays Sunday night, and you have all day to think about how you're going to spend your money. Several nervous hours later, your team comes out and gets trounced.

Take the Emotion out of Handicapping
by Gary Patrick Garry - 08/08/2007
Everybody says that they know that you should bet with your head, not your heart. But we have to stay ever vigilant to stick to this mantra. And even if we have the discipline to consistently play with our heads, there are those among us who do let their emotions get involved with their bankroll, and this is something that we as handicappers can use to our advantage.

by Allen Eastman - 05/07/2007
Sports gamblers, even those that follow proper money management techniques most of the time, can still see their profits evaporate with a few bad habits. One such habit reminds me of a friend of mine from Southern California. He came to the realization that betting his favorite teams (Dodgers, Angels, Lakers, Packers, Ducks and Kings) was helping him lose his bankroll in a hurry.

The Glantz-Culver Line
by Trevor Whenham - 05/04/2007
In the world of sports betting there are many things that are treated with an almost mythical devotion. Concepts like smart money and wise guy plays are viewed by many people as the secret key to betting success. Another topic of keen interest to many is the opening line. Some people think that the opening lines, since they are developed by experts, are an indicator of what is going to happen in the game, and a key tool for handicapping success. This may be true, but only if you really understand where the lines come from and what they can mean.

2007 Arena Football Predictions
by Vegas Sports Informer - 02/27/2007
The start of the 2007 Arena Football season is a couple days away and my wallet is itching to fire up some units. Arena Football is not like the NFL where they have preseason games to fall back on and help us with handicapping the season. Most teams in the Arena league have at least one session of training camp where they practice with another team, so we won't get a good feeling about this year's league until the regular season kicks off.
