As you already know, coming out ahead (meaning with more money in your wallet at the end of the day) with sports betting oftentimes comes down to understanding and using the right strategy. That being said, do keep in mind that there is no one size fits all sort of strategy.
Thus, perhaps an analogy that could help you get the concept is to think of the various sports betting strategies as different tools in your toolbox. It goes without saying that when you take your car to the shop for a repair, the mechanic has a wide assortment of tools for the different types of jobs he might have to perform. Your sports betting tools are there for you to use when they are needed.
with that in mind, let’s take a look at a sports betting tool that you may not have considered using before. This one is referred most often as a Pleaser Betting Strategy. For the record, the Pleaser Betting Strategy can be looked as the polar opposite of the Teaser Betting strategy.
Take an example to see how this looks on paper. Suppose that there is a two team six point teaser bet that has base lines of Team A +1.5 and Team B -8.5. The teaser bet ends up as a sort of combo bet with A +7.5 and B -2.5 at -110. (Note that means you are risking $1.10 to possibly win $1.00).
Now turn this upside so you can see how this would show up as a Pleaser wager. So, now you wager this play as a two team six point pleaser. That looks like this: Team A -4.5, Team B -14.5 at +600. In other words, now you are actually risking $1.00 to possibly win $6.00 or real world odds of 6 to 1. Still with us here?
As you might well imagine, these Pleaser Bets have much higher possible payouts. This is due to the fact that the point spread is actually moved against you instead of for you. That being said, note that for both Teaser Bets and Pleaser Bets, each team must cover their modified point spread for you to come out as a winner.
Now, with all of the above being said, the reality today is that Pleaser bets are not so easy to come by. You see, there are few sportsbooks that even offer them anymore. All the same, should your favorite sportsbook offer pleaser bets, it coul certainly be worth your while to try it out for yourself.
As you undoubtedly know, staying on top of your game with sports betting means keeping close watch on what is happening in and around the world of sports betting. And this is actually becoming even more important as of late as seemingly more and more people around the world try their luck with sports betting. What that means in practice is that from rank amateur sports betting newbies to seasoned pros everybody that is looking to profit from sports betting is facing more and more competition.
Yet at the very same time there are some exciting new tools, (technology based to be sure) that are taking care of much of the traditional drudgery that was the hallmark of a successful sports bet not so long ago.
But what is even more insightful is to take a good look around and see how some of the most successful are using new tools to come out ahead of the game. What you should know is that a new trend is the use of mobile apps.
Yeah, that is probably true. A sports betting app is not such a newsworthy item these days. But, here is what is new, here is what is exciting. So much so that you could rapidly transform your results in a remarkably short time.
The new trend is actually a combination approach. On one hand, sports betting apps are being at the exact same time that wagers are placed at traditional brick and mortar sports book. Note that the keyword there was the word apps. Yes, there is an ‘s’ there at the end. In other words, the new sports betting play is to use a few different sports betting apps. These assorted sports betting apps are used to place live sports bets.
Get this: the power of this new trend is the next step. At the same time (or as close as is realistically possible), the person then places wages at the brick and mortar sites. Do you see the power of this?
Here, let’s spell it out so you don’t miss the point. The technique outline above allows bettors to monitor and play sports bets in real time. Better still, all of this can be done over multiple lines at the same time. Naturally, you can readily see how this increases the opportunities for those in person live bets.
Are you getting this? Here it is one more time. The latest trend in sports betting is the use of multiple apps and live in person wagers. Does this sound like a strategy you could implement?
