Insane Betting Myths

Analyzing The Insane Betting Myths That Are Actually True

There are plenty of different tips that professional handicappers use when advising bettors to wager in the betting lines, and one of the constantly recurring themes in most betting forums is that gamblers should keep away from myths. Here, we aren’t preaching a different gospel; we are all for shunning most of these myths. I mean, why would I believe these constant talks about sportsbooks Analyzing The Insane Betting Myths That Are Actually True There are plenty of different tips that professional handicappers use when advising bettors to wagfixing games with players and teams when I practically live off the money I make every day in my betting endeavors? Yes, I know games are rigged, like the way New England’s Tom Brady liaised with whoever to do whatever on his footballs in that game against the Colts, but to the best of my knowledge—and I know a lot—there is no sportsbook that is yet to be implicated in that Deflategate scandal. Just think of it, if Brady knew that he’d get a lot of advantage from underinflated balls, don’t you think he’d have conspired with a handful of sportsbook odds to benefit from it being the “winner” that he is? Anyway, that’s besides what I am trying to put across; my point is that most myths are useless and time-wasting, but some of them—like the ones detailed below—are actually true.

Lines Movements are More Influenced by the Market than Teams

While teams strengths, the manner in which they play and issues such as injuries and suspensions influence betting lines; most line movements are largely based on the public betting action and opinions, along with Wiseguy money. This is also true for popular teams like the Golden State Warriors in the NBA or the New England Patriots in the NFL, who tend attract a lot of action on sportsbooks as favorites, with the market pounding hard on them and often leading to a drop in their lines. Insane Betting Myths

Most Gamblers Bet the OVER

There’s probably nothing insane about this, but to think that over 70 percent of recreational bettors, especially those who are new to the betting world, I are estimated to bet on OVER is just plain crazy. With so much money spent on sports like basketball, soccer and hockey on the defensive side of the ball, you’d expect bettors to at least consider that defenses will figure in games and lead to a number of UNDERs. Fortunately or unfortunately, research has it that most people love high-scoring games and that often influences their betting decisions, as they channel their expectations into the betting lines and wager mostly on the OVER, even in instances that it is ill-advised to do so. But then again, you wouldn’t really blame these bettors, would you? I mean, with players like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo known to be goal-machines in soccer and the likes of Stephen Curry known to light it up in the NBA, your mind can easily be wired to expect high-scores whenever such players take to the field.

Betting Trends in College Sports are Usually Sharper than in the Pros

Going by the competitive nature of sports in the Pros, going on long winnings streaks or keeping certain trends intact is usually very hard. In college sports, it’s the exact opposite, with most dominant teams staying dominant year-in, year-out while the underwhelming schools continue to struggle, irrespective of roster turnovers. A good example here is the Florida State Seminoles football team that won 29 straight games between 2012–2014, including a national championship in the 2012-13 season. The other example is the Kansas Jayhawks basketball team that hasn’t won the national championship since 2008, but boasts of a ridiculous 206–9 ( .958) win record at their home court, the Allen Fieldhouse, under head coach Bill Self, a record that includes win streaks of 69, 33, and a currently-active streak of 40 entering the 2016 season. When you play Kansas at home, it is therefore almost given that the Jayhawks will be winning that game.

First Games in the Pro Leagues are Risky to Bet On
On one hand, the fact that teams are often in transition during the preseason or at the start of the season comes with the advantage that you can find lines that aren’t so sharp, which can lead to good profits. On the other hand, surprises come aplenty during the start of the season, including false-starters, underrated teams playing well and overrated teams underwhelming with iffy performances. As such, it is advisable to be keep away from these lines—like NBA and NFL preseason—unless you are really sure that you’ve covered your bases.

Tragedy Preakness Weekend

Triumph and Tragedy Preakness Weekend

Triumph and Tragedy Preakness Weekend Posted by Betonline Team on 5/25/2016 3:47:58 AM Many of the joyful fans that filled Pimlico Race Course were in a cel

Many of the joyful fans that filled Pimlico Race Course were in a celebratory mood. They watched Exaggerator pull away from third place finisher and Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist, spoiling his bid for the Triple Crown.

However, near the celebration and cheers was a tragedy. Two horses were dead from earlier races and the only people that knew were race organizers and fans who got the news off their cell phones.

Homeboykris, a nine-year-old gelding that ran in the 2010 Kentucky Derby, collapsed after having his photo taken in the winner’s circle after placing first in the opening race of the day. In the fourth race, four-year-old filly Pramedya collapsed on the track with a fractured left leg and was euthanized on the track. The long bone between the ankle and knee was shattered and there was an open would. Doctors determined surgery could not help the horse.

Her jockey, Daniel Centeno, fractured his right clavicle after being thrown to the turf. The track was inspected after the fall but officials said everything was fine. There were no incidents reported on the muddy track during the Preakness.

Those who do not like horseracing made stinging comments about how cruel the sport is. If Sea World is shutting down its whale exhibit and the Ringling Brothers Circus it’s elephant shows, then why not abandon horseracing?

It is a silly argument but extreme comments are commonplace during the Internet era. Horseracing will live on because it is a multi-billion dollar industry. Race organizers called it a tragic day but the show must go on. Athletes have died on the field and courts in football, basketball and hockey, yet no one screams to shut those sports down.

Tragedy Preakness Weekend

“It’s deflating,” Sal Sinatra, president of the Maryland Jockey Club told the Baltimore Sun. “You try to figure it out, go through so many steps to make sure the horses are OK. Things do happen.”

Roy and Gretchen Jackson are no strangers to putting a horse down. They also owned 2006 Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro who broke his leg during the Preakness two weeks later. They tried to figure out ways to save the horse but euthanized him later.

“We haven’t fully digested the whole thing,” Roy Jackson said. “But life goes on.”

Race experts estimate that deaths occur between one in 500 to 1,000 races, experts said. The Equine Injury Database said 31 horses died at Pimlico from 2009 to 2015.

Tragedy Preakness Weekend

Homeboykris was considered to be in good shape. He raced four times this season and reported no leg problems.

Meanwhile, the Preakness was a great success. The race set an attendance record and drew a 6.2 overnight rating, up seven percent from last year. That boost can be attributed to Nyquist, who was trying to become the second horse in a row after American Pharaoh to win the Triple Crown.

Nyquist trainer Doug O’Neill blamed himself for an aggressive start to the race, which seemed to wear him down. However, it appeared as if Exaggerator was coming on strip during the Kentucky Derby, but ran out of room to win the race.

Now comes the rubber match on June 11 in Belmont, New York and the media is likely to play up a rivalry between the two horses although we doubt they have spoken to each other.

“We have to play that up as horse racing aficionados,” said Exaggerator trainer Keith Desormeaux. “You lose a lot of luster after a Derby winner is beaten because the Triple Crown chance is annihilated. We have to play up the rivalry, I guess. Keep people interested. There’s no way it’s going to compare to American Pharaoh last year, but it’s going to be fun for those of us immediately involved.”
