The Different Ways to Bet a Sporting Event

Online BettingCheck WagerWeb and find the best online betting site!!!!

There are several different types of common sports bets and here we explain them all:

Against the Spread

In every game, there is a favorite and an underdog. In order to make the game even for betting purposes, oddsmakers come up with a point spread, or line. The spread is a handicap, the amount of points you have to part with if you bet on the favorite, and the amount you will receive as an underdog.

Every game that has a point spread is considered an even proposition, a 50/50 bet. In fact, that is the purpose of the spread, to make the teams even, so that there is no obvious advantage to picking one side or the other. In order to make money on wagers against the spread, sports books charge a commission (or a vig), typically 10%, that you pay on losing bets, i.e., you have to risk $55 to win $50.

In order to overcome the vig, you have to win roughly 52.5% of the time.

Over/Under

Also called the total, this is a bet on the sum of points scored by both teams in a given game. For example, the over/under line for the Titans-Cowboys’ game might be 40. If the Titans win 30 – 13, the total is 43, and the over wins. If the Cowboys, win 20 -13, the total is 33 and the under wins. It doesn’t matter which team scores what.

The over/under is also a 50/50 bet, and as such, there is typically a 10% vig attached, just as with games against the spread.

Money Line

The money line is as odds bet. Instead of parting with points or receiving points to make the game even, you part with or receive extra money. For example, if the oddsmakers believe that it’s twice as likely that Dallas will beat Arizona than the other way around, then the odds will look something like this: Dallas (-220) vs. Arizona (+180). Dallas -220 means that if you want to bet on Dallas, you have to risk $220 in order to win $100. Arizona +180 means that if you bet on Arizona, you risk $100 to win $180.

 

The reason why you lose $220 if you bet Dallas win just $180 if you bet Arizona, is that this disparity takes the place of the vig, i.e., the big is built into the odds here.

 

Parlays

Basically, parlays are bad bets. They are essentially the combining of two or more standard against the spread bets for a better payout. For example, if you feel strongly about Tennessee -15 against Dallas and Philadelphia -10 against Arizona, then you may want to parlay the two games. In that case, if you lose either you lose your entire bet. If both win, you get paid 13-5 or 5-2, depending on the house.

 

In other words, if you parlay $50 on those two games, you’ll win $125-$130 if and only if both teams cover. So why is this a bad bet? Because you have a 50% chance to win each game, and thus a 25% chance to win both. If you were getting true or fair odds, a 25% chance would pay 3:1. In that case, you would risk $50 to win $150. But you only get $125 to $130. Assuming that you get $130, you are receving $20 less (or 13.33%) less than an even bet would pay. But remember: on normal bets against the spread, you only kick in an extra 10% on losses.

 

Teases

There are two basic kinds of teases: a two and a three team tease. With the two team variety, you can take six points and do what you want with it on two different games. For example, if you like Tennessee-15 against Dallas and Philadelphia -10 against Arizona, then you can tease both spreads down by six points, to Tennessee-9 and Philly -4. Assuming you bet $50, if the Titans win 30-20 and the Eagles win 16-10, you will win $50. If either team fails to cover the teased spread, you lose $50. Moreover, if you tie on either leg of the tease, you lose the entire bet.

There’s no need for the house to take a vig because the tease is a bad bet. Six points, as attractive as it seems, doesn’t quite make up for having to win both games.

Different Types of Sports Betting

Sports BettingCheck WagerWeb and find the best online betting site!!!!

They are traditional forms of sport betting, that is, simply placing straightforward wagers on the outcome of sporting events, But internet came to change things, online sports betting is still largely about making traditional wagers. However, there are a few other ways of betting on sports too.

This are  some of the most popular alternative types of sports betting:

In Play Betting

Most sports betting sites offer in play betting these days, and it’s one of the most popular ways to bet on sporting events. Although, relatively speaking, it is something of a new development, in a few years it has had a huge impact on the way people place wagers. It’s also incredibly straightforward. Basically, it’s all about placing wagers while a sporting event is taking place rather than before it starts.

It’s also known as live betting and it opens up a whole new range of betting opportunities.

Exchange Betting

Exchange betting is another relatively new development in the world of sports betting. It has proved to be incredibly popular though and many people now choose to place their wagers in this way. The wagers you can place are essentially the same as in traditional sports betting but there is one fundamental difference in the way it works. Instead of using the services of a bookmaker, you are betting against other people who are taking the opposite position to you.

Fantasy Sports Betting

Playing fantasy sports is not about betting directly on the outcome of sporting events at all. It’s still about trying to make money out of your sporting knowledge. The basic concept is that you create a fantasy team by picking your chosen players and then put that team up against teams created by other players. The betting aspect is that you stake money on how your team will perform against your opponents.

You can play on a number of sports and there are various ways in which you can wager money.

Spread Betting

There are actually two types of spread betting. One is betting on the point spread, which is a very common way of betting on sports – particularly in America.

The other form of spread betting is not quite as straightforward, or as common. It can be very profitable but there is also a lot of risk involved too. This is because the amount of money won or lost is not a fixed stake, but varies depending on how accurate a wager is.

In some ways it’s similar to totals betting, in that you predict whether a specific value (for example the number of goals scored in a soccer match) will be higher or lower than the amount set by a bookmaker. However, wagers are settled based on how much higher or lower the value is.

Proper Tackling Technique

Tackling TechniqueCheck WagerWeb and find the best online betting site!!!!

We love football!! We love watch it, betting on it, and of course playing it!!! And we bet you do too, so at this article you’ll find the proper tackling techniques.

Tackling successfully and safety all starts with proper technique:

  • Approach ball carrier, chop feet and get under control. You never want to be caught flat footed. Aiming point is the inside hip of the ball carrier.  We do not use the term “break down” because breaking down will get defenders caught flat footed.
  • Stay low. Sink the hips, eyes on belt buckle.
  • Tackle through.  Explode through the target with head up. Contact must be made with shoulder pads.  Feet need to be active (chopping) andunderneath you. Shoot hands up, wrap up, and grab cloth.
  • The tackler’s head must always be across the body of the ball carrier. If our players do not get their head across the body we consider that an arm tackle.
  • Drive through.  Many kids will make the mistake of stopping their feet on contact.  Teach your players to shoot and drive through the ball carrier.

From Online Sportsbook, Casino Betting, Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the online gambling options
Coaches should always start off with non-live tackling drills. Practice tackling techniques on air, then with dummies/ tackling sled, then you do some live contact.  From the first day of practice we will teach how to tackle with proper tackling technique. You can practice form tackling right off the bat in your stretching lines.

Tackling with the right form and fundamentals will keep your players safe and your team ahead. You can learn to drop quickly into a basic tackling form, shooting up and into the offensive player with extreme agility, accuracy, and power. With the right fundamentals, you’ll never get juked out of your shoes, get trucked over, or execute a lazy arm tackle again.

San Diego Padres at Milwaukee Brewers

San Diego Padres at Milwaukee BrewersCheck WagerWeb and find the best online betting site!!!!

The San Diego Padres had been executing better with runners in scoring position in recent weeks, but timely hits have been rare in the last few days.

They’re hoping for better situational hitting to end this 10-game trip on a positive note Thursday against the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Padres (52-56) won eight of 10 from July 24-Monday, going 23 for 53 with runners in scoring position in the last five victories. They’ve lost three of four, however, going 4 for 27 in those situations in the losses.

San Diego matched Milwaukee’s 11 hits Wednesday, but was 3 for 12 with runners in scoring position in an 8-5 loss to the Brewers (46-63), who were 4 for 7.

Murphy did have a few reasons to be encouraged: San Diego rallied for three runs in the ninth, Justin Upton was 2 for 4 after sitting out Tuesday with a sore thumb and Yangervis Solarte extended his hitting streak to 11 games, the longest by a Padre since Will Venable’s 15-game run in August 2013.

San Diego’s Odrisamer Despaigne (5-7, 4.75 ERA) is aiming to win a third straight outing after back-to-back victories over Miami. He had won only once in his previous 12 starts.

Despite Murphy’s glowing assessment, those performances might have been misleading given Miami’s major league-worst 3.5 runs per game – though Milwaukee isn’t much better at 3.9 per game. Despaigne was also excellent in his only start against the Brewers, giving up one earned run while striking out nine over seven innings of a 3-2 victory for the Padres on Aug. 27, though he wasn’t credited with the win.

Matt Garza (5-12, 5.17), conversely, is trying to avoid dropping a third consecutive start for the third time this year. He had three such skids in his previous nine seasons.

Garza — trying to avoid joining teammate Kyle Lohse as the only 13-game losers in the majors — is 1-5 with a 5.83 ERA in his last seven outings, walking 13 in the last five.

Though he issued four free passes Saturday against the Chicago Cubs, he was solid otherwise, allowing three runs – all on Anthony Rizzo’s homer – over six innings in the 4-2 loss.

The Milwaukee offense was lackluster as it often has been with Garza on the mound, and he fell to 1-11 when getting two or fewer runs of support.

He hasn’t faced San Diego since 2011 but has fared well in three matchups, going 2-0 with a 2.14 ERA and 22 strikeouts in 21 innings.

Upton is 2 for 15 with six strikeouts versus Garza.

Motor Racing Betting Strategy

Motor Racing Check WagerWeb and find the best online betting site!!!!

Betting on motor races is as exciting as being behind the wheel and driving the car themselves. Online, you can find out everything you need to know about motor racing and sports betting; from understanding odds to familiarizing yourself with the drivers to betting wisely, everything is available with a click of your mouse.

From Online Sportsbook, Casino Betting, Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the online gambling options

In order to have the best chance to beat the sports books on the motor racing lines you have to find reasons why their lines are off. You do this by compiling statistical data about the drivers, the tracks and which drivers do better on each track, the weather, the pole position, the pit crews and everything else you can find. Certain drivers do better on certain tracks while others do better in cooler weather, or a main pit crew member may be out this week. You need to track as much information as you possibly can to find an advantage.

One potentially profitable strategy is to find a driver or two every week that for one reason or another are lower on the list of favorites who have a chance to win. For example, if you bet 100 on a driver that is at +2700 you only have to have him win one out of every 26 races to show a long term profit. The problem is that he is at +2700 for a reason, so you need to be realistic when following this strategy. You have to have real evidence from your tracking and statistical analysis that says he has a real chance to win. If you pick two drivers every week at +2700 each, one of them has to win at least once out of every 13 races for you to turn a profit.

(bbc.com)- Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel took a surprise win in a chaotic, dramatic and thrilling Hungarian Grand Prix as Lewis Hamilton finished sixth.

Hamilton had a mighty let-off after an error-strewn drive because title rival and Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg finished eighth after a late puncture.

The result means Hamilton, in the most unlikely circumstances, extends his lead over Rosberg to 21 points.

Red Bull’s Daniil Kvyat took his first career podium in second.

Vettel’s victory came as a huge surprise, and the German dedicated it to French driver Jules Bianchi

There was a further surprise behind Vettel as Russian Kvyat took second place despite being one of several drivers to suffer penalties as a result of driving transgressions.

He was handed a 10-second penalty for taking an advantage by going over track limits but held on ahead of team-mate Daniel Ricciardo. Ricciardo managed to take the final podium position. Behind him, 17-year-old Max Verstappen took the best result of his short career in fourth.

The most popular type of wager you will be able to place on motor sports events is a outright or future bet.

A future bet is simply a wager on who is going to win an event. You will see a driver followed by a number with a positive or negative sign in front of it. Any time there is a positive (+) sign in front of the number, that means you will bet 100 to win the number after the positive sign if your chosen driver wins. If there is a negative (-) in front of the number then you have to bet the number after the negative to win 100. All common future bets are based on 100. This doesn’t mean you have to bet in multiples of 100 though. You can bet less and the sports book will adjust the numbers. For example, with a line of +120 if you only want to bet 20 you would stand to win 24
