Sports Betting Tips – 7 Sports Betting Tips to Boost Your Winning Rate – (Part 2)

In my previous article of Sports betting tips, I’d discussed about how important money management is. The second most important aspect to online sports betting is shopping for numbers. This aspect of the betting process is a very important one that many newbies and even veterans overlook. Just imagine when you are shopping for a laptop. You don’t just pay the price the seller is asking before you compare it in other shop, make sense? The same thing applies here in online sports betting.

It is also important that you have the ability to play where the numbers are most advantageous, which means that you must have funds in your account where the best lines are offered at the time you need to be betting. Having some cushion in a service such as Neteller can also precipitate this flexibility. That ability comes from how experienced you are in this field, it grows as you go.

It sometimes surprises me when a bettor, in golf for example, says getting -125 is not that much better than getting -135, that it is not worth shopping for, it only wastes your time. I try to point out that that is either $10 less risked, for a $100 bettor, or over $7 more won for the same risk amount. What could have been the difference if you do 20 bets? When bet after bet is piled up, you would see how that is worth shopping for.

How many sports books do you have to sign up for? I would say the magic number lies between three to five sports books. Having too many accounts at too many bookies does not help much. Even worse, it could get you into trouble. You’ll have to balance funds among multiple sports books. You must keep this factor in mind when deciding how many accounts to use and how heavily to fund them.

Anticipating and analyzing line movement is something professional bettors always do. The numbers move according to the betting pattern of the bettors, which means the line changes depending on the wagers bettors have put. Sometimes it is better to bet early as soon as the line is out, sometimes waiting for the line to move into your advantage before betting could be a right choice. Whenever you are going to bet, it is always the best move to shop for numbers at that time.

Remember that the difference between a point or two is usually the difference between a win or a loss. Stay tuned to the next part of 7 Sports Betting Tips to increase your winning rate.
