Horse racing is far from your regular sport, and so is betting on it. While sports like football, tennis, and even soccer requires that you focus on the athletes only, horse racing requires that you focus not only on the athletes (the jockey) but the horses, too.
This explains why we don’t see as many bettors staking on horse racing as we do in other sports betting like football. Simply put, betting on horses is a tough ask of anyone.
How then can one devise a long term winning strategy? You may wonder!
Betting on baseball is no different than betting on football or basketball or any other sport. You look for lines that offer value based on your handicapping skills.
Over the entire history of baseball and betting on baseball, the starting pitcher for both teams has been the most important factor for handicapping.
Smart baseball bettors also consider how each team performs at home and on the road and look for players on a hot streak.
You should be using all of these things to handicap baseball already.
But if you want to be the best baseball bettor you can be, you need to dig deeper and use more information than average baseball bettors.
This is why I built the list of baseball betting tactics below. These seven things are often ignored by average baseball bettors.
Add these things to your current handicapping model and continue looking for additional things that most baseball bettors ignore.
1 – Bullpen Strength
More baseball bettors are using the strength of each team’s bullpen in their handicapping, but it’s still not used enough. The average number of innings pitched by the starting pitchers has been declining for decades, and it’s reached the point where I use the bullpen strength just as much as the starting pitchers in my handicapping.
The first time through the lineup, the starting pitcher has the best results on average. The second time through Source…
The PGA Tour is headed up the east coast to Cromwell, Connecticut for its third week back in action, and we’ve got some 2020 Travelers Championship predictions!
This tournament has taken place at TPC River Highlands every year since 1984 and despite the reshuffling of the PGA Tour schedule, the Travelers is one of the few events to have its original dates go unchanged.
After three months without competitive golf, the first two weeks back have caused massive betting action at online sportsbooks in New Jersey and several other states where wagering is legal. We expect that trends to continue while the PGA is one of the only major pro sports leagues in operation.
Below, we’ll preview TPC River Highlands and provide some 2020 Travelers Championship betting picks for the upcoming week!
Before putting any money down, it’s important to be educated on several things including the layout of TPC River Highlands and any key stats that can be applied to your research this week.
Par is 70 at this track, which is one of the shortest on the PGA Tour at just over 6,800 yards. It may sound like that would play to the big hitter, but not necessarily. Tree-lined fairways make it difficult to cut corners, and accuracy off the tee and on approach is what is most likely to be rewarded at the Travelers. Here are several stats to put an emphasis Source…

Saturday, June 20, Belmont Park, Race 7, post time 3:39 p.m. ET
#10 Light in the Sky: The temptation was there to only cover the major stakes races on the Saturday card at Belmont but this six-furlong turf sprint for New York-bred fillies and mares was just too intriguing. It’ll be interesting to see how the pace unfolds but, at a minimum, we know that #5 Winifred J and #4 Strongerthanuknow will be sent. Assuming they both break cleanly, that should ensure an honest enough pace. Still, I wouldn’t want a horse who’s too far back in a race like this, so I landed on #10 Light in the Source…
Unlike many other games of chance, sports betting is predictable only to a certain degree. Over a lot of time, athletes, fans, and enthusiasts have gained experience as to who can prevail in a competition, at what time, and against which opponent. Many also like to bet on sports simply because they all admire the athletic performances.
However, placing money on teams is not only about the enjoyment of the sport being played, but, it is also about a working system and a sober assessment of the team’s or individual’s performance. By having the right strategy implemented, as well as patience and discipline, you might actually turn this hobby into a profit.
Nevertheless, sports gambling will always remain a game of chance, where the results depend on the imponderables. Therefore, nobody should be tempted to bet amounts that exceed the budget, even if the results seem entirely certain and reliable. If you are thinking about wagering on sports, here are some tips that you might want to remember:
1. You’ll Need to Start With a Realistic Budget
Generally, when you start betting, you should set yourself a very strict budget. Do not make the beginner’s mistake and wager more money than you can actually afford. The budget you choose must be based on a small part of your monthly disposable income. This means that you should only spend a part Source…
