Women In Padded Bras Padding Bettor's Stacks

I'm sure most of the betting public doesn't know that the WNBA season has tipped off and that the women's hoops league is entering its 11th season. Unfortunately, they're missing out on what could be one of the most profitable gambling venture they could undertake this year.
I love to watch and bet the WNBA. Well, I love it because I've been very successful in betting on it. Now, I know you're probably starting to think that I'm a raging gambling addict. But in all truth, betting professional women's basketball or college women's basketball is no different than wagering on any other sport. If you put in the time handicapping you'll be rewarded with cold hard cash. That makes it no different than the NBA or men's college hoops.
I started handicapping the WNBA is because 11 years ago I was getting killed in baseball. I needed something different, so I tried handicapping the women for the second half of the season. Not only did I come out on the positive side on the hardwood, but also I was able to make up for all of my losses on the diamond.
One of the main reasons I loved betting the WNBA was because I was finding fantastic value in it. I've mentioned in other articles concerning the Arena Football League that books and oddsmakers spend more time in the mainstream sports like the NFL, college football, and the NBA than in fringe sports like the AFL or WNBA. Books and oddsmakers don't waste as much time tracking teams securing strong lines as they would for something like March Madness or the NBA Playoffs. That means we can find and exploit a variety of weak lines and profitable situations over the months that the WNBA and AFL are underway.
Hey, a $100 bet is a $100 bet. Whether you're laying it on the L.A. Sparks or the L.A. Lakers doesn't matter. Especially when your winnings are added to your account. For example, a couple years ago the Sparks and the Phoenix Mercury games were all going over the modestly posted totals. The oddsmakers took around five games to make any kind of adjustment and I was cleaning up in each of those contests.
If you are a trend man the WNBA has some outstanding ones that I've been cashing for the past decade. I have my own tracking system and have built an extensive list of trends that make me one of the top cappers in the country in this sport. If you take the time to cap the games yourself you'll find that there is still great value on teams because of free agents signings, trades, foreign players, and best of all pregnancies.
(The reason why I mention pregnancies the face of the league the past 11 years Los Angeles Sparks star Lisa Leslie is out for the whole year. I'm waiting to see how the books adjust the line due to her absence.)
Most gamblers use the WNBA during baseball season because the league doesn't start until the middle of May. What do they use the WNBA for, you ask? They use it to add another team to their multiple parlays. While that's not something I'm necessarily into, I do know that it's a popular way to use these games here in Vegas.
Like I said before: handicapping the WNBA is just like handicapping any other sport. I've been doing it for over a decade and it's simply another way for me to put cash in my wallet during the dog days of summer. I am more than willing to put my knowledge and experience to work for you, and I'd be willing to bet that after a few short week's you'll be rocking your Sue Bird jersey or pulling out your Sacramento Monarchs foam finger while watching your bank roll grow!
