The world of online sportsbooks is very competitive. To attract new customers, books will often offer incentives, or bonuses, for people to sign up. They could, for example, offer to match your first deposit up to $500 - if you deposit $500 they will give you $500 more.

What Does Handicapping Mean in Sports Betting with Examples
by Doc's Sports - 10/1/2014
Handicapping is to analyze a game or event in an attempt to get a sense of who is likely to win so that you can profit from through betting. Handicapping, ideally, will help you understand the probabilities of each team winning or covering the spread. When you know the probabilities you can understand if the bet makes sense based on the available odds. Not surprisingly, handicapping is what a handicapper does to find an edge and identify the bets with a long-term expectation of profit.
