Football Lines

Football Lines

How can you take advantage of football lines when all of the sportsbooks seem to have their finger on the pulse? You could just accept the lines that are on offer, place your bet and then simply move on to something else. That is what most people will do but then again, most people don't take their football lines seriously and treat the whole thing as nothing more than a bit of fun. There is nothing wrong with that at all but when you see what lengths a professional will go to to take advantage of the football lines, and when you also see how big their profits are you will perhaps change your mind, I did anyway!

If you do decide to take it all a little more seriously you will find that there is so much information to help you on your way that the job of studying the form is far easier than it ever was a few years ago. To start with I would advise that you take a close look at ScoresAndOdds.com. There really isn't a better place to start and it doesn't matter what level of gambler you are, there is something there for everyone.

Now, back to the professionals. To beat the football lines the thing that they are always trying to achieve is to get an edge. This edge will basically allow them to spot when football lines are out of line and this is when they jump in and make their investment. Spotting when the sportsbook has made an error in judgement such as this is also more commonly known as finding value. If you only get involved in football lines where you can obtain value you will find that your profits will increase in size by an amount that you just would not believe.

So, how do you find value in the football lines that are on offer. Well, you really need to look for something that the sportsbook may have not taken into account, you may think that would be impossible but you would be surprised by how often something will shout at to you and you will realise that a mistake has been made..

A good start is to look at the stats on offer at ScoresAndOdds.com and you can often spot things there that may not have been picked up, but in all honesty you really do have to go much further than that if you want to take advantage of the football lines on a regular basis. A favorite of many of the pro's is to get involved with the online forums. You will be amazed at how often information will be leaked out regarding an injury to one of the players or perhaps gossip about other personal problems. When you have been around these forums for a little while you will be able to spot straight away if something is true or in fact just gossip. Some posters on the forums will be known to have their fingers on the button, so to speak, and the posts that they make could in fact make you a great deal of money.

As an example you may find that a player has an injury but the newspapers haven't reported it yet. The sportsbooks may not have noticed either so the football lines on offer may well be there for the taking. You should realise though that these methods don't allow you the luxury if thinking about it, you really do have to get the bet on quickly because when other gamblers have discovered the same news as you the football lines will move accordingly.

I know of at least two pro gamblers who actually employ someone to look through the forums for them in order to spot any worthwhile news. These are people on an attractive salary as well so you can see how important the forums can be and why if you really want to get up to the next level you to should take a look around and see what you can find out.

It should be noted that many professional gamblers will only place a bet when they can see that they are obtaining value, when they are not obtaining value they simply don't bother to place the bet. Many people find this extremely difficult to understand with regard to football lines and it is for this reason that the ability to find value in football spreads is most definitely a skill that need to be learnt because if you do master it, you will be able to use websites such as ScoresAndOdds.com as well as many of the other websites online to ensure that your profit from football lines will have the potential to be substantial to say the very least.

Don't be overwhelmed by all that should be taken in. Just take it slowly and start with ScoresAndOdds.com, you will no doubt find value football lines there, not as many as if you were investigating all of the other Avenues but it will give you an idea of what you can achieve and tempt you into looking into things further.

It was by using ScoresAndOdds.com that got many people into looking into the world of value betting so I can't really think of a better place to advise you to start.
