ATS-  ATS is an acronym for Against The Spread.  

Chalk-  Chalk is betting on the favorite.  If you ever hear, “there is a lot of chalk on that card” it means a bettor is placing his bets on a lot of favorites.  

Dime-   A dime bet is a $1,000 bet.

Favorite-  A favorite is a team that is projected to win by odds-makers.  

Futures- A future bet is a bet that will not be decided for some time.  Most future bets are betting on a team to win the championship before the season starts or betting on a win total for a team.  For example, we picked France to Win the World Cup at +800 before the tournament started.  That is an example of a future bet.  

Juice- Juice is the commission that a sportsbook earn on each wager.  If the odds are even on a bet, generally a sportbook will make the bet -110 so they keep the -10.  

Lock-  A term to describe a pick that is an easy winner.  Veteran sports bettors know that there is no such thing as a “lock.”

Moneyline-  Betting on the moneyline means you are betting purely on the team to win straight up.  There are no spreads with money line bets.

Mush- A bettor or gambler that is not skilled at making picks and normally is bad luck.

Nickle-  A nickle bet is a $500 bet.

Over/Under-  When betting on an over/under, you are betting on the final score of the game.  For example, if you bet on Braves/Marlins Over 9, you win the bet if the teams score over 9 runs in the game.  

Parlay-  A parlay is when a bettor combines two or more moneylines, spreads, or over/under bets to win, earning a higher payout if all of their picks win.  If one of the combined bets loses, the whole parlay loses.

Pick’em – When a game is a Pick ‘em, it means that there is no favorite or underdog.  Odds-makers believe that neither team has an advantage over the other.  

Push-  A push is one a bet is a tie and no money is won or lost.  For example, if you bet on the Patriots -7 and the final score is 21-14, it would be a push.  You would not lose or win anything. 

Second Half Bet- A second half bet is a bet placed after the first half ends on a new line created by the odds-makers. There are a lot of advantages to second half betting because you can get a team at a much better line if they are losing after the first half.  Odds-makers have a short time to make the 2nd half line so there is room for error on their part. 

Spread-  A spread a type of head start for the underdog of any sporting event or competition. … This means that the favorite of the game needs to defeat their opponent by more than the point spread in order for the bet to win. This creates an active and balanced market for both sides of a wager.

Steam-  When a sudden line movement occurs across the sports betting marketplace.  Steam occurs when a large amount of money is being placed on a certain bet.  An example of steam would be the Packers opening up at -7 for the points spread and the line moving -9 by game time.

Straight Bet- A straight bet is a single bet on a spread, money line, or over/under.   

Underdog-  A underdog is a team that is projected by odds-makers to lose.

What is your betting bankroll?

Your betting bankroll is the amount of money you are willing to invest/risk in sports betting.

How much should you risk per bet?

We recommending betting 1 unit per pick. A unit is your average size bet and should be 1-3% of your bankroll. Put some serious thought in your bankroll amount before betting.

What are some common bankroll management mistakes?

Raising your unit size during hot streaks is a recipe for a disaster, as is lowering your unit size or not placing bets at all during cold spells. Think of sports betting like the stock market; It will have ups and downs but it will go up over time with us. You have to keep making the picks to have long-term success.

The beginning of July every year has gives us things to look forward to: Summer is in full swing, celebrating the birth of our nation on the 4th, and finally the MLB All-Star Break. Much to the chagrin of gamblers everywhere though the All Star break means baseball is on hold and for the most part means there is nothing to wager on. That no longer needs to be true because the NBA Summer League is in full swing and Sports Analytics 24/7 is your guide to crushing the Las Vegas league and profiting while most gamblers believe there is no money to be made but this is not the case for savvy gamblers who know where to find value.

                The NBA Summer League began 15 years ago and has grown more popular each year and this year every NBA Team was represented as well as two national teams, China and Croatia. The league lasts for 10 days and at the end a champion is crowned. The players consist of everything from high draft picks, good college players trying to impress enough to make a roster and even journeymen former NBA players trying to get back into the league. Given that many of these teams are formed quickly and have very little time to practice many conclude it makes this event impossible to gamble as the variance will be too high. Where others see a problem, Sports Analytics 24/7 sees an opportunity where oddsmakers are dealing with less info themselves and as such cannot accurately set a line. Meaning there is significant value in certain games where the line is simply incorrect. Sports Analytics 24/7 uses their system of algorithms and analytics to find these games and help their clients profit at a time during the year when few gamblers are.

                The perfect example of this would be last night’s game between the Lakers and Knicks. The Knicks were favored by four points and many would shake their head at that line. The Knicks were 0-3 in the Summer League having played the Pelicans, Raptors and Suns by a combined 22 points. Not only did Sports Analytics 24/7 have no issue with what appeared to be a bad team being favored by a wide margin for the Summer League (lines tend to be much smaller in the summer league then typical NBA games) but they made this game their Play of the Tournament. This was their most confident pick of the tournament and the average gambler probably would probably shake their head and say I just don’t see what their logic is. There in lies the difference between what Sports Analytics 24/7 does verse the average person. They are able to look beyond records and recent stats and incorporate everything that others don’t. Simply put instead of trusting their eyes they trust cold, hard numbers to make their selections and as a result are not pulled down by human bias.

                The results speak for themselves, just let last night’s Play of the Tournament be the first example. As we said before the Knicks would not have been a popular pick given how they had played in their first three games together but the results were loud and clear: the Knicks won 117-96 by the huge margin of 21 points but led this game by as many as 30 points at times during the game as the result was never in doubt after the first half. Where others shook their head and saw a struggling team Sports Analytics 24/7 let the numbers do the talking and found their most confident play of the entire NBA Summer League. This is just another in a long time of instances where the way the typical gambler goes about making their selections is flawed and ultimately will not be profitable long term.

                Less than 5% of people actually make money when sports betting and the truth is they either don’t know how to go about selecting teams or they don’t have the time to properly put in the research. Sports Analytics 24/7 knows both and their mission is to help struggling sports bettors stop losing every week and start putting in place the principles that successful gamblers utilize each day. They use their proven system to not only help you pick games but also how you manage your bet size and avoid money management issues that plague most gamblers. Simply put if you are tired of losing money sports betting and want to know what its like to be on the winning side then Sports Analytics 24/7 will be your guide.

        One of the things the average bettor may find the most difficult about NBA Summer League is the changing roster information. This is where Sports Analytics 24/7 goes the extra mile to find the edge for their clients. Sometimes injury information for Summer League games may not be revealed until less than ten minutes before the tip. This gives bettors and oddsmakers almost no time to react to the new information. What this can provide though is an opportunity to have a significant edge on an individual game.

                There are a few different ways handicappers can take advantage of the short time frame on information. First, they make sure to have someone in attendance for Summer League. Sometimes the quickest way to get injury information is through being in physical attendance for the game. Seeing that a given player is dressed out and warming up or in street clothes can swing the spread in a game dramatically as even oddsmakers do not have time to react. When Sports Analytics is in the crowd and sees roster information that could impact the game they pounce and help their clients win.

                Outside of attending games Sports Analytics scours through any piece of media they can find searching for any hint of information that could impact the game that day. As teams do not keep injury information up to date during the Summer League sometimes new information can come from nontraditional sources and finding these sources requires hard work and constant attention. They must constantly be checking social media and internet outlets trying to find reliable sources of information who might give them an edge even if it just in one game. At the end of the day Sports Analytics does what it takes, no matter the time involved, to find the best possible edge for their client.

                With these edges has come big time results for their clients. Sports Analytics has posted a winning record in each of the last three summer leagues and being five games over 500 this year they are well on their way to year number four. Not to mention as the Summer League has progressed their winning percentage further proof that as summer league has moved on and they have continued to cultivate ways to find information their edge has only increased. Sports Analytics 24/7 is showing again that there is value to be found in areas where others only see problems.
