took gold medals in.

Sporting events held at the 2016 Summer games from Rio de Janeiro have been the first since the 2000 Olympics in Sydney that bettors in Nevada could put their money on, though relatively few have.

Rowing, shooting and judo — the U.S. Johnny Avello, the longtime odds-maker and sports book director, said he sensed that there would be mild interest just like in the 1990s.

But the bookmakers also said it’s not for a lack of interest in the games, as the competitions have brought people out who just want to watch. Her work can be found at http://bigstory.ap.org/journalist/sally-ho

The bookmakers in Sin City said there’s been little money and few expectations for Olympic sports wagering this year, as the games returned to the betting board after being off limits for more than a decade in Nevada.

Basketball this summer has reigned supreme, as a steady number of bettors backed the familiar NBA stars dominating the men’s Olympic games.

The same can’t be said of the more obscure sports that some sports books said they didn’t get any bites on whatsoever. Rivals at the international sports books in Great Britain, Ireland and Australia and offshore Internet sites have already allowed such bets.

“I put in a lot of time in it for very little action,” Avello said.

And though marquee events in the pool and on the gymnastics floor are always a highlight for viewers, the bookmakers said it appears that few people feel confident enough about a sport they only pay attention to once every four years to put their money on it.

“I know that they’re watching. The largest single sports book in town offered more than 70 events for betting, but cut their losses with the so-called second- and third-tier sports that the U.S. may have won big gold medals in those Olympic events but some of the most prominent Las Vegas sports books didn’t even bother with them.

“We’ve had a lot of inquiries about the odds and people look them over and they just don’t run to the betting windows,” Kornegay said.

Follow Sally Ho at twitter.com/–sallyho. That’s created a festive, patriotic scene at the casinos during what is typically a slower sports betting month.

——

Officials at the local sports books said they didn’t expect a sweeping boon to business but that whatever action they’ve gotten, however little, has been better than nothing.

. Soccer and golf were also among the more popular events that were wagered on.

“The ones that do well are the ones people are used to betting on a daily basis,” said Nick Bogdanovich, the head odds-maker for William Hill, which runs more than a hundred sports books in the state.

Meanwhile, the Wynn Las Vegas resort and casino took a relatively conservative approach by offering only a half dozen events on the betting board. The overall amounts seen per bet — $10 to $20 — for the Olympics have been peanuts compared to the record $132.5 million wagered in Nevada on this year’s Super Bowl.

State gambling regulators were previously against having wagers on what it considered amateur sports but Las Vegas bookmakers successfully lobbied them last year to change the policy. I just know they aren’t betting,” said Jay Kornegay, who runs the sports book at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino

Conversely, betting on a horse with bad odds will pay out a lot of money if they do win. Give that a good look to see who’s done well recently.

Look for a horse that has won most of his races by a good length. The words “first, second, and third,” are replaced by “win, place, and show.” If you think your horse is pretty good but not going to come in first, you can bet that he will “place,” — that is, come in first or second. You’re trying to hit the sweet spot: a horse with okay odds who you think has a shot at winning.

The favorite going into this weekend is California Chrome, with 5-2 odds. Say, “I’ll bet $2 on (horse’s name or number) to win.”

If you’re done with the beginner stage of betting, you can up your odds of winning by doing more complicated bets that yield bigger payouts: exactas, trifectas, and superfectas. Here’s a quick guide:

Exacta: You pick the two horses you think will come in first and second, in that order.

Trifecta: Pick the three horses you think will come in first, second, and third – in the right order.

Superfecta: You guessed it. If you’re in it for the thrill of victory alone (and not the money), he’s a good bet.

Betting on Your Picks: “I’ll take $2 to win on the four horse, please.”

In horse racing, you need to bet on what place the horse will come in. You can place your bet anytime up until about 20 minutes before the race goes off at 6:24 p.m. Saturday. Therefore, betting on him won’t yield a big payout. A horse that goes into the race with 50-1 odds but comes in first place will pay out the most money to the bettor. Or you can bet that he will “show,” — that is, come in first, second, or third. Horses with lower first number (10 and down) are considered top contenders.

Betting on a horse with good odds will not pay out much money if they win. What’s a superfecta anyway, and how do you bet one?

You’ve got your mint julep and your fancy hat ready for the Kentucky Derby, but are you ready to place your bet on the horse you think will win?

Here’s our guide to making sense of the Run for the Roses. Like it’s name implies, the superfecta pays out big bucks if you manage to get it right.

Like all sports, horse racing has its own language that can be confusing to casual watchers. He’s dominated all the races he’s run so far and all eyes will be on him. If you’re not going to be in Louisville for the big day, you can head to your local racetrack or off-track betting outlet and place a bet there.. For a superfecta you pick the top four finishers in the right order. If your horse comes in any of those positions, you’ll get money.

If you’re sure you’ve got the winner and you only want to place a simple bet for him to come in first, go ahead and bet your money that way. It looks something like this: Vicar’s In Trouble (20-1).

Horses with a high first number (like 20-1 or 50-1) are considered unlikely to win the race. That number shows what the odds are that the horse will win. Good luck racing fans!

Picking a Horse

There are 20 horses in the field for the Kentucky Derby, though as of now only 19 will be running Saturday (#11 Hopportunity was “scratched.”) All the horses are 3-year-old male thoroughbreds, which means they’re young horses with lots of talent that is still developing and not a ton of experience.

Many casual bettors will pick a horse based on name or looks, but there are better ways to judge the odds for whether a horse has a shot at winning. The Kentucky Derby is one and a quarter miles long, longer than any race these horses have run before, so the winner will need stamina.

Odds and Favorites

When you look at a race form there will be a number in parentheses after each horse’s name. Now it’s off to the races. Each horse will have a record of recent races he’s run, what place he finished, and how far ahead of the other horses he was

It is estimated that as a result of Facebook — students are now “twice as likely” to participate in campus activities (compared with students who are non-Facebook users). Furthermore, students are also more likely to be feel like they have more ‘friends’ and hence ‘popular’ and sociable than that of non-Facebook using students. [4345]

Each user on Facebook.com has their own free to set-up individual profile from which they can engage with others user’s Facebook profiles through instant messaging, email and recently ‘video calling’ in association with Skype and notifications etc. They also refrain from using it ‘too much’ e.g. Be careful and be private!

Overview of Facebook for Students

Before discussing the advantages and disadvantages of Facebook for students — I believe it is first best to get an quick overview of what exactly ‘Facebook’ is.. From this they can expand upon current knowledge and also learn about new things that can be potentially beneficial to the student and their education.

If you have any additional advantages of Facebook for students please be sure to add them to the comments box below.

Disadvantages of Facebook for Students

Negatively Impacts on Grades - Of course there are two sides to this aspect, Facebook can obviously benefit a student’s grade from healthy debate and discussion but it also has the negative effect on a student’s grade as a result of potential procrastination and distraction. Switch from revising to Facebook etc.) are said to see a drop by 20% in their grades. Log off, turn off — go outside and play football, you will  probably be quite surprised how much happier and positive you are (if you like football of course).

So How does Facebook work?

Keeping Students Up to Date - by simply ‘liking’ a Facebook fan page such as ‘The Economist’ or ‘The Financial Times’ students can allow themselves to be kept up to date on a vast array of current (and mostly) quality information and news — through articles, videos etc. At least not to the extent of logging in with every notification. that Facebook fan pages like the examples above share through their ‘wall’. Furthermore, an individual could know more information about than you would like them too, having said that do you even know really how much Facebook knows about you? I think you would certainly be surprised. Hence, it can put you on a downer rather than a high. And in the future who knows what the possibilites for social networking sites such as Facebook can offers us — but the primary objective of such a site (at least for now) is to keep people ‘connected’. 

How to Use FacebookAdvantages of Facebook for Students

Group Study & Collaboration With Teacher Integration - a positive aspect of Facebook for students is for the promotion of group study and collaboration, along with the further possibility of educators and teachers having a ‘watchful eye’ and a ‘helping hand’ in group discussions which that can be taken away from the classroom. they only log in to their account once every few days to check for events that are going on and to participate in educational groups and get in touch with the news. From Facebook you are able to organize private groups in which students are able to carry out essentially large revision sessions in which everyone can benefit from one person sharing a particularly helpful point or comment — or if a particular student is struggling with a certain concept and explains what it is they are struggling with on the Facebook group, other students can come in and help with that aspect — which may help additional students too. 

Psychological Issues - Another negative factor of Facebook for students is it can promote ill feeling to be an individual as well as the feeling of loneliness and depression, and in some cases causing individuals to  become more aggressive. For example, when it comes to around exam time and that means revision and study time — they either ban themselves from using it or better still delete their account until exams have finished (and don’t worry Facebook make it *surprisingly* easy to get your account back). For example, if a student claims that they are going on holiday in a few days to X-land — this could give a ‘go ahead’ for a potential robbery as they know the house to be empty. This can be rather easily solved — don’t multitask, drop Facebook and start revising! [4345]

 If you have any additional disadvantages of Facebook for students please be sure to add them to the comments box below.

Summary of the Advantages and Disadvantages of Facebook for Students

Overall, I believe students who are fully aware of the potential benefits and drawbacks (as detailed above) can gain greatly in a number of aspects from Facebook, bearing in mind they approach it with the right strategy. This is hardly surprising considering the amount of ‘depressive’ type statuses that are seen through Facebook.

A Greater Sense of Community and ‘Fun’ - again with Facebook due to its ease and free communication,(an advantage for penniless students all by itself) it is a great platform for sharing information fast and can keeping a lot of students feeling ‘connected’ — hence it is easy to keep people updated with relevant information and aspects and keep people involved and active in events. Having said this — the ‘net’ Facebook effect, for students who multi-task (e.g. Students have the ability to share ideas and their feelings towards a certain aspect and help one another in problem solving and understanding particular concepts. Furthermore, Facebook users are able to engage in applications, participate in interest groups and organize events through Facebook. Furthermore, students can share useful information that they have come across in further research they may have carried out that, from a topic the teacher has posted — for example a particularly useful article, or an educational video — all of which can be brought ‘back’ into classroom discussion and reflect positively in a student’s work. If a student approaches Facebook maturely and wisely then it can be a great platform for them to benefit from, otherwise it could lead to a potential ‘minor’ road to ruin, with the likes of obsession and depression.

As social networking sites have now become an integral part of a student’s everyday life and with Facebook considered to be the ‘Big Daddy’ of the online social networking world — consisting of over 900 million users, it is not too surprising to find that more than 96% of students claim they have a Facebook Profile (with 10% using it daily)[4346]  – this coupled with the fact it actually originated from a student, Mark Zuckerberg, on Havard University Campus.

If you have any additional advantages and disadvantages of Facebook for students or any general remarks then I encourage you to please leave a comment below.

Vulnerable - an important point students need to be aware of is the information that they upload on and share to Facebook from several areas

Using Reverse Line Movement To Win

Keep a close eye on Canbet here, as that Australian sportsbook cracked the top five both years.

The highest two-year winning percentage using RLM from the top five books belongs to College Football, which went 480-341-10, 58.5 percent, +95.10 units. Keep in mind that NCAAB was the most liquid sport in terms of top-five sportbooks however, with not a single sportsbook making the top five both years. We tracked the top five books for each of the pointspread sports for the last two years, as as you can see, this strategy has been profitable in every sport. RLM takes place when more money/ sportsbook picks are bet by the small percentage of bettors that are on the unpopular side (the sharps) than is bet by the huge majority of players betting the popular side (the squares). Furthermore, they list the RLM records for many individual sportsbook, making it easy to spot which books this system is working at and which books it may be best to ignore.

Thus, following reverse line movements is the same thing a following the smart money.

NBA sports betting has the lowest two-year five-book RLM winning percentage among the 11/10 sports, but then again, every gambler in the world would kill to go 382-301-9, 55.9 percent, +48.90 units, and the 57.5 percent win rate this past season is nothing to sneeze at. This would make Miami +6 the RLM play.

So what causes RLM when the aim of most sportsbooks is to get as close to balanced action on both sides as possible? The answer to this is quite simple: the sharp bettors; the one’s who give sports betting advice. Carib ruled the roost season at 93-66-9, 58.5 percent, +18.55 units after ABC held the penthouse spot in the 2007-08 season.

So what exactly is reverse line movement? RLM takes place when a large majority of bets are on one team, yet the line moves in the opposite direction. All of this will be fun to follow (not to mention profitable) when every sport except baseball are going on simultaneously during the winter months.

http://prosportsonline.net

College Basketball sports betting was not too shabby either, with a two-year mark of 492-356-22, 58.0 percent, +91.96 units. However, instead of the line rising as you might expect, it instead drops to Chargers -6. The huge problem with this is that the nfl line, ncaaf line or nhl line may have moved too much by that time, and all of the value has been sucked out of the unpopular side.. Sure, using this approach leaves open the possibility of the line turning around and moving back against you, but as you will see in bit, betting as soon as an RLM qualifies has been profitable in every major North American sport such as the last two seasons, so if one line turns around, so be it. Last year was a good RLM season for NFL sports betting (45-29, 60.8 percent, +11.91), but two sportsbooks that were in the top five in NFL RLM in both seasons.

By: Manny G

To back this up, our friends over at Prosportsonline.net have tracked the records for games where over 60 percent of the public has been on one side, yet there was reverse line movement of at least one full point from the opening number at the top sportsbooks in NFL, NCAAF, NBA and NCAAB. This may enable you to get the stale more favorable sports betting line at the time the reverse line movement hits at the triggering Sportsbook. It should be noted that many fewer MLB games have qualified so far this season (is the whole world using RLM now?), but smaller profits is still profit.Again, these records are for Money Lines only and do not include totals.Finally, NHL sports betting has picked up 148.49 units in two years, and unlike MLB, NHL had four sportsbooks out of the top five gain double-digit units this past season.

Also, games where over 60 percent of the public are on one side, yet there is reverse line movement of at least 10 cents on the Money Line from the opening number at the top five sportsbooks in MLB and NHL sports betting has also been profitable. The records quoted below are based on the bets being made at the triggering books, so beating the move by a half-point or a few cents now and then would actually make your record even better.

Now do the sharps win every single time? Absolutely not! However, they are right more often than they are wrong, so being on the same side as the sharps is a prudent strategy over the long run, and again, the best thing is that there in absolutely no conventional sports handicapping necessary..

So what we recommend is to only use the top five each season for each individual sport (in terms of units won). Another important recommendation is to use a slow moving (but reliable) sportsbook. Quite a few RLM followers watch the moves until almost game time, and then bet accordingly. Keep an eyes on the top five sportsbooks at Sports Insights though, as NCAAF sports betting has been very liquid in that regard, with only one sportsbook (believe it or not, Bodog) finishing in the top five both years.

The proper way to make a sports bet using reverse line movement is to place your bet as soon as there is an RLM of one full point (or 10 cents in MLB and NHL) off of the opening line. To illustrate, let us say that San Diego Chargers open at -7 over the Miami Dolohins, and over 70 percent of the sports bets placed on the game are on San Diego. This is where an important word of caution is in order though. Note that these records are for sides only and do not include totals.

The NFL sports betting is generally considered the toughest sport to beat, yet blindly following this method produced an exceptional 59.2 percent win rate last season, improving the two year record to 328-249-12, 56.8 percent, +59.06 units

But, what happens when that “healthy” work out motivation and behavior takes on a darker side? Self-disciplined individuals with perfectionistic tendencies and a strong desire to compete (even with themselves) are at a high risk for developing training and exercising behavior that is excessive and dangerous. What originates in a desire to improve performance, fitness, and self esteem turns into a form of punishment and unhealthy practices that eventually have the opposite outcome.

5 myths of sports betting legalization

Vegas has had to reinvent itself as a place that is about more than just gambling. “The Donaghy controversy also made me aware how important it is that we have a way of monitoring irregular activity on our games,” Silver said. But let’s say I have a bad losing streak and end up down more than $1,000. First off, the government will only legalize if it is going to get significant revenue. The U.S. Illegal gambling is one of the factors that’s associated with gambling addiction,” Keith S. 3: It will put local illegal bookies out of business

Until many of these questions are answered, it will be difficult to draw any hard conclusions about the ramifications of legalized sports gambling in the U.S. Since sports gambling is currently something that happens in the shadows, problem gamblers are likely to hide in that shadow until it is too late.

My answer is a solid maybe. However, there are certainly some myths that I believe can be dispelled.

I see the same trend happening if sports betting gets legalized in the U.S. This mirrors a similar concern that some had 25 years ago when Indian and commercial casinos began sprouting up all over the U.S.

“One of the things that makes sports betting so interesting is that it is probably by far the most widely participated in form of illegal gambling. This year, it is on pace to welcome a record 40 million visitors. Second, operators will need to run a cost-effective business, which may prove difficult if there are a lot of other hands to feed besides the government.

Las Vegas sports book operators are already looking to expand to other states. In the past two decades, although total revenue has risen, percentage of revenue from gambling has decreased from close to 60 percent to last year’s 38 percent. Sen. U.S. In addition, asking for a percentage based on the overall handle (total amount wagered) will cut into the margin of the sports books too significantly.

In addition, game fixing would be easier in a world where fewer people track or are even aware of things like point spreads and over/under bets. Purdum, an expert on the subject, has been vocal in his belief that online sports gambling will need to be a big part of the new legalization plan, and I share his belief, as betting on a phone and computer is simply much more convenient than driving to a brick-and-mortar sports book and making a wager. Some are based on a time frame, while others are based on going over agreed-upon limits. There are going to be a lot of hands in the cookie jar. Whyte, executive director of the NCPG, told my ESPN colleague David Purdum.

Once games happen, the stats are public domain. In addition, customers are far more inclined to place a wager when they don’t have to put any money down.

When I think about the best way to legalize sports gambling from a logistical standpoint, I get a headache. When I lose this money, it’s gone, and I can’t bet until I put more money on deposit. Concerts, shows, high-end nightclubs and restaurants draw people to Vegas as much as the gambling does. 4: It will damage the sports betting business in Las Vegas

The National Council on Problem Gamblers has found that problem gamblers are most often involved in illegal gambling, so moving toward a model where more gamblers are doing it legally can only help.. (It’s common for bookies to offer rebates to their big customers.) This will be difficult for legal bookmakers to compete with.

While it seems that the question of legalizing sports betting presently is more of an if than a when, there remains a great deal of uncertainty regarding what it would look like. Many bookies will allow me to get more credit and continue to gamble. District Court Judge Mary Ann Medler ruled in favor of CBC, stating that “statistics are part of the public domain and can be used at no cost by fantasy companies.” One would infer that the same would apply to legal bookmaking operations.

Silver echoed this sentiment when discussing his personal revelation in an exclusive interview with ESPN. Legalized sports betting would elevate these now somewhat esoteric notions into the mainstream conversation about sports. It’s a pretty reasonable assumption that it’s easier to fix a game in an environment where most of the money wagered is impossible to discover or track by the government. Illegal sports betting has some characteristics that can lead to problem gambling more than legal betting would.

The topic of federal legalization of sports betting has been brought up before, but it has gained steam since Adam Silver’s November New York Times op-ed and after Silver’s cover story in ESPN The Magazine’s Gambling Issue. Yes, trademark images and logos would be a different story, so I could see the leagues getting marketing deals, but I don’t see that as a huge windfall for the leagues.

Myth No.

Furthermore, once sports betting becomes legal the negative stigma behind it will eventually disappear, which will make it a bit easier for problem gamblers to ask for help. In the latter case, I set up a credit arrangement with Illegal Book B and we agree that I will pay every time I go over $1,000. If something shady were to occur in a game around a betting proposition, raised awareness by the public about gambling in general would help highlight any improprieties before, during and after the match.

In the most relevant case, CBC, the parent company of CDM Sports, a fantasy provider, sued MLBAM after being denied a new fantasy sports license. I am concerned that the overall pie, even with online gambling, may not be large enough for the leagues to make the money they are hoping for.

There is simply no way the leagues could ask for a percentage piece of gambling revenue, as this would result in a huge conflict of interest. 1: It will result in large revenue for the leagues

Those betting with bookies have predetermined settlement terms. This is not how most bookies work. This credit relationship will be hard for many gamblers to give up.

Here’s an example. Are fewer people gambling because they can do it in their home state?

The real value for them will be potential marketing dollars and increased fan engagement, not licensing fees for data or direct revenue from wagering.

There are a lot of unanswered questions regarding legalization of sports gambling in the U.S., and it will be fascinating to watch how it unfolds in the next few years. operation for the U.K.

At any rate, I really don’t see legalized sports betting in other states having a big impact on the sports betting business in Vegas.

Myth No. John McCain (R-Ariz.) also recently said that Congress needs to hold hearings to discuss legalizing sports betting.

Mr. Those who believe that legalized sports betting will lead to more risk of game fixing simply don’t understand why games are fixed. Say I set up an account with Legal Sportsbook A. There are no credit checks or margin calls until it is time for me to pay. In order to grow the pie large enough, these conveniences must be provided to gamblers. This is the type of financial recklessness associated with problem gambling.

Myth No. bookmaking powerhouse William Hill has already set up an operation in New Jersey, and MGM CEO Jim Murren has said his company is interested in expansion.

Myth No. In fact, there’s an argument that exposing more people to sports gambling in their native states will make the general concept of sports gambling more approachable, ultimately leading to a larger overall percentage of sports fans-turned-gamblers.

Here are the top five myths about legalizing sports betting and why they’re wrong:

This is the easiest myth to dispel. “But for the FBI knocking on our door and notifying us about Donaghy’s betting, none of the systems that we then had in place had captured any betting by Tim Donaghy.”

Myth No. I will likely have to put money on deposit to do so. The two biggest reasons people bet with bookies (beyond the lack of alternatives) are the convenience and the line of credit. Maybe more so.

I understand the argument that legalized sports betting could expose more people to gambling and the increased ease and access will create more problem gamblers, but I simply don’t buy it. How will it be regulated? How involved will the government be? Will it be federal enforcement or on a state level?

The thought process here is that with legalized sports betting available locally, there will be less interest in making the trek to Sin City to wager on sports. 2: It will create more “problem gamblers”

And I have heard some mention licensing fees for data, but haven’t we already covered that in lawsuits against both the NBA and Major League Baseball Advanced Media (MLBAM)? In both cases, statistics and data were ruled to be public, not a private asset for which the leagues could charge a license fee.

In that time span, we all know that Vegas has flourished. The experience of going to Vegas is becoming less and less about putting down a sports bet and more and more about the experience of everything else. These days, most bookies provide both a phone number and website where bets can be made. If it’s legalized, there will be huge changes, but some assumptions are simply off.

Those who believe this simply don’t understand how sports betting with a bookie works. 5: It will create greater risk for game fixing

Since bookies will not have to pay taxes or licensing fees, they will be able to offer better margins or incentives to their customers

Using Reverse Line Movement To Win

Keep a close eye on Canbet here, as that Australian sportsbook cracked the top five both years.

Also, games where over 60 percent of the public are on one side, yet there is reverse line movement of at least 10 cents on the Money Line from the opening number at the top five sportsbooks in MLB and NHL sports betting has also been profitable. All of this will be fun to follow (not to mention profitable) when every sport except baseball are going on simultaneously during the winter months.

http://prosportsonline.net

The proper way to make a sports bet using reverse line movement is to place your bet as soon as there is an RLM of one full point (or 10 cents in MLB and NHL) off of the opening line. This would make Miami +6 the RLM play.

So what causes RLM when the aim of most sportsbooks is to get as close to balanced action on both sides as possible? The answer to this is quite simple: the sharp bettors; the one’s who give sports betting advice. Keep an eyes on the top five sportsbooks at Sports Insights though, as NCAAF sports betting has been very liquid in that regard, with only one sportsbook (believe it or not, Bodog) finishing in the top five both years.. Keep in mind that NCAAB was the most liquid sport in terms of top-five sportbooks however, with not a single sportsbook making the top five both years. Furthermore, they list the RLM records for many individual sportsbook, making it easy to spot which books this system is working at and which books it may be best to ignore.

So what exactly is reverse line movement? RLM takes place when a large majority of bets are on one team, yet the line moves in the opposite direction. To illustrate, let us say that San Diego Chargers open at -7 over the Miami Dolohins, and over 70 percent of the sports bets placed on the game are on San Diego. Last year was a good RLM season for NFL sports betting (45-29, 60.8 percent, +11.91), but two sportsbooks that were in the top five in NFL RLM in both seasons.

NBA sports betting has the lowest two-year five-book RLM winning percentage among the 11/10 sports, but then again, every gambler in the world would kill to go 382-301-9, 55.9 percent, +48.90 units, and the 57.5 percent win rate this past season is nothing to sneeze at. This is where an important word of caution is in order though. The huge problem with this is that the nfl line, ncaaf line or nhl line may have moved too much by that time, and all of the value has been sucked out of the unpopular side.

So what we recommend is to only use the top five each season for each individual sport (in terms of units won). Another important recommendation is to use a slow moving (but reliable) sportsbook. RLM takes place when more money/ sportsbook picks are bet by the small percentage of bettors that are on the unpopular side (the sharps) than is bet by the huge majority of players betting the popular side (the squares).

To back this up, our friends over at Prosportsonline.net have tracked the records for games where over 60 percent of the public has been on one side, yet there was reverse line movement of at least one full point from the opening number at the top sportsbooks in NFL, NCAAF, NBA and NCAAB. Quite a few RLM followers watch the moves until almost game time, and then bet accordingly. Sure, using this approach leaves open the possibility of the line turning around and moving back against you, but as you will see in bit, betting as soon as an RLM qualifies has been profitable in every major North American sport such as the last two seasons, so if one line turns around, so be it. This may enable you to get the stale more favorable sports betting line at the time the reverse line movement hits at the triggering Sportsbook. However, instead of the line rising as you might expect, it instead drops to Chargers -6. It should be noted that many fewer MLB games have qualified so far this season (is the whole world using RLM now?), but smaller profits is still profit.Again, these records are for Money Lines only and do not include totals.Finally, NHL sports betting has picked up 148.49 units in two years, and unlike MLB, NHL had four sportsbooks out of the top five gain double-digit units this past season. We tracked the top five books for each of the pointspread sports for the last two years, as as you can see, this strategy has been profitable in every sport. Carib ruled the roost season at 93-66-9, 58.5 percent, +18.55 units after ABC held the penthouse spot in the 2007-08 season.

Now do the sharps win every single time? Absolutely not! However, they are right more often than they are wrong, so being on the same side as the sharps is a prudent strategy over the long run, and again, the best thing is that there in absolutely no conventional sports handicapping necessary..

Thus, following reverse line movements is the same thing a following the smart money. The records quoted below are based on the bets being made at the triggering books, so beating the move by a half-point or a few cents now and then would actually make your record even better.

The highest two-year winning percentage using RLM from the top five books belongs to College Football, which went 480-341-10, 58.5 percent, +95.10 units.

College Basketball sports betting was not too shabby either, with a two-year mark of 492-356-22, 58.0 percent, +91.96 units. Note that these records are for sides only and do not include totals.

The NFL sports betting is generally considered the toughest sport to beat, yet blindly following this method produced an exceptional 59.2 percent win rate last season, improving the two year record to 328-249-12, 56.8 percent, +59.06 units

Horse Racing Systems: 5 That Work

With the BRIS pp’s you can use the Sire Production Factor in concert with the pedigree rating. The inside post combined with early speed is a particularly potent combination, since the horse will not have to exert himself as much to gain his preferred position at the front of the pack.

In that spirit. Just don’t expect to quit your day job.

Horse Racing System #5 – Bet Horses breaking from the inside post in route races. If the tote board suggests that the public is overlooking these mitigating circumstances, make your play.

Horse Racing System #4 – Bet low-priced favorites to place. It should go without saying that you should actually like the favorite’s chances after evaluating the race with your own handicapping.

Horse Racing System #1 – In maiden races, bet the horse with the best last race speed figure that has had at least two career starts. Most people who love horse racing would be thrilled just to win a little more and lose a little less on their trips to the track.

For instance, many speed figure handicappers reported making horse racing profits in the 60′s and 70′s simply by betting horses with the best last race speed figure. This offers opportunity to more diligent players.

Horse Racing System #3 – In maiden claiming races, bet the horse with the best pedigree. This system takes advantage of one of the few glaring inefficiencies in the parimutuel pools, namely that first and second time starters are badly over-bet.

The horse with the best last race speed figure (whether Beyer, BRIS, or Equibase) may not be the best horse in the race, but he’s probably not far off, so we can use that as a proxy for selection purposes.

First time starters return only about 60 cents on the dollar, and second time starters are only a little better, returning less than 70 cents on the dollar. I was able to replicate this result in my own study of nearly 100,000 races conducted a decade later.

Look for comment lines like “bled”, “lost rider”, “clipped heels”, “stumbled”, “steadied”, “between horses”, “rank”, and “jumped shadows” that suggest that a horse’s last race was not indicative of its true ability. To the extent that most handicappers use pedigree at all, it’s usually to identify horses that may improve when switched to the turf, or those who may be expected to win as first time starters. One of the few anomalies turned up by Michael Nunamaker in his pioneering computer study “Modern Impact Values”, published in 1994, was that horses breaking from the inside post position in route races won more than their fair share of races, and were under-bet by the public. This is another mistake that bettors make: in a race with a clear standout, many people give up on the win pool and bet their choice to place, thinking that they’ll get paid even if the favorite wins.

For as long as humans have bet on horse racing there have been system sellers trying to con the gullible into parting with their hard earned money with the lure of easy profits to be made on the sport of kings. Let me let you in on a little secret about these “magic formulas”. The inside post in turf routes actually showed a small profit, but this was based on a small sample size and cannot be relied upon.

Nunamaker reported that the inside post in dirt route races won at a 20% greater than expected rate, and lost only 10 cents on the dollar, much better than the track take. The horse with the best combination of the two is the play.

However, just because systems won’t make you rich doesn’t mean there’s no place for them at all in a horseplayer’s arsenal. In most case the public seems to take a horse’s last running line at face value. Few bother to even look at the comment line for the race, let alone take the trouble to seek out and watch the replay of the race. It must follow, therefore, that if we bet the best horse that has started at least twice, we stand an excellent chance of beating the takeout, particularly in races that have several first and second time starters.

Second, the very nature of the parimutuel system itself means that any profits to be made from following a particular set of rules will quickly be arbitraged away as the followers of that system drive down the odds of horses chosen by the system.

In fact, pedigree does not generally offer wager value with one curious exception: well bred horses do surprisingly well in maiden claiming races. Because speed figures have gained in popularity over the years, anyone following that system now would have trouble coming up with gas money for the ride home from the track.

This causes the favorite to be under bet in the place pool, leading to a profit opportunity for us to take advantage of by betting the favorite to place. My study suggests that’s not the case.

Instead of blindly betting all horses breaking from the inside, you might use this to supplement your handicapping, paying particular attention to the inside horse, and betting it when you like the horse on other handicapping grounds. Thanks for reading, and see you in the winner’s circle.

How do we identify the best pedigree, then? If you’re using the DRF past performances, use the stud fee as a proxy for quality, and the Tomlinson figure to judge suitability for the distance and surface. This is somewhat counter-intuitive since you’d expect that horses with good pedigrees that end up in the maiden claiming ranks probably can’t run at all. My computer studies of pedigree, based on nearly 100,000 races, suggest that using pedigree in that manner offers no advantage to the player.

Looking for a dead simple horse racing system that will allow you to quit your job and make a living betting the horses in just 10 minutes a day? Good luck with that!

In the first place, the parimutuel takeout in horse racing is large (over 15%) and the mutuel pools are relatively efficient, so that even systems with a strong basis in reality can’t overcome the size of the takeout.

None of these systems will make you rich, or even guarantee that you will make a profit. They will, however increase the chances of a profitable day at the races by ensuring that your wager dollars go where they have the best chance of success. None of them work.. I’ve identified some of the most useful handicapping factors that have a proven history of doing much better than the track takeout and put them together with some simple rules that should make your trips to the racetrack more fun and profitable. My own studies have shown a similar advantage for the inside post in routes.

Horse Racing System #2 – Bet horses that have an excuse for a poor performance in their last race

Suspicious bets mostly around tennis in 2015, report says | Reuters

The organisation, established by regulated bookmakers to monitor suspicious betting patterns and guard against match fixing in sport, said 73 of the 100 events that raised concern involved tennis.

“An alert can be an indicator of suspicious activity.

“The data in our Q4 integrity report reflects previous quarters and, whilst tennis constituted the largest proportion of suspicious betting alerts identified by ESSA members, it should be noted that the vast majority of tennis events are fair,” he added.

LONDON Tennis accounted for nearly three quarters of all the suspicious betting alerts issued last year, the European Sport Security Association (ESSA) said in a report published on Thursday.

The allegations were further fuelled by former Australian professional Nick Lindahl pleading guilty in January to match-fixing in a minor tournament in 2013. The review will take at least a year to investigate allegations of corruption in tennis and the effectiveness of existing procedures.

Match-fixing allegations by the BBC and online BuzzFeed News broke before last month’s Australian Open.

The spokesman added that factors that can influence results — such as player fitness, fatigue, form, playing conditions and personal circumstances — are analysed and if there are concerns about “suspicious activity” the TIU will investigate the matter.

The ESSA report said that in the final quarter of 2015, there were 35 sporting events deemed to be suspicious with tennis accounting for 24 of them and soccer eight.

A top global bookmaker also suspended betting on a suspicious match at the Australian Open.

Most of the cases of suspicious betting in soccer occurred in European matches. But it is not proof or evidence that corruption has taken place.”

“The start of 2016 has seen a worldwide focus on alleged match-fixing in tennis,” wrote chairman Mike O’Kane in an introduction..

Tennis governing bodies set up an independent review panel last month following media reports criticising the Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU) for not adequately investigating some 16 players repeatedly flagged over suspicions they had thrown matches in the past decade.

Tennis was more evenly spread globally, led by Asia (19 cases), Europe (18) and North America (14).

For the whole year, soccer triggered 19 alerts while table tennis, ice hockey, snooker and greyhound racing each featured twice.

“All information supplied by betting operators is analysed by the TIU,” a TIU spokesman said in a statement.

Geographically, 38 of the alerts originated in Europe, 24 in Asia, 16 in North America and 11 in South America. Africa accounted for nine
