A Beginners Guide to Betting on Basketball

High School Sports: Minneapolis North Basketball Player Receives ‘Profane, Racist Message’ From Student From Opposing School

Basketball is an internationally beloved sport. The number 23 is globally synonymous with the legendary Michael Jordan, and there are murals of the late Kobe Bryant painted on walls worldwide. 

Though there are many leagues throughout the world – the National Basketball Association is considered the apex organization, which is unsurprising considering that in the last twenty Olympics – the USA has won the basketball gold medal sixteen times.

One of basketball’s most significant selling points is its straightforward point system and play structure – making it ideal for those interested in sports betting. 

In a single NBA season, there are over 1200 games played, with the average points per game being 105-120. This means that there are hundreds of chances to practice betting and hone one’s strategies.

Below are some dos and don’ts of betting on basketball.

Betting Methods 

Point Totals or Over/-Under 

Point totals, also referred to as over/under, are one of the most accessible betting tactics and are as straightforward as they sound. To place a bet, a wager is made on how many total points will be scored in a game, and you only need to guess if the outcome will be above or below this number. 

For example, in a game with the Milwaukee Bucks vs. Chicago Bulls with an over/under of 160.5 points, you only need to predict if the total points will be more or less than 160.5 points. 

If the total score is 163 and you have bet that they will exceed the over/under – you would successfully win the bet.

Point Spread Betting 

Unlike other sports, where the points per game are pretty low, like soccer which averages between 1.22.8 goals per game, basketball is an incredibly high-scoring game. This means that point spreading is one of the most popular approaches for fans when betting on an NBA game, for instance.

In point spreading, you guess the difference in point totals between the two teams. 

The volume of points also reduces the chances of randomness – ensuring an increased level of predictability if you are familiar with the teams playing.

Say the LA Lakers are playing the Utah Jazz, with a point spread of 7 in favor of the Lakers. Those who have bet on the Lakers need the game to end with the Lakers 7+ points ahead of the Jazz – to “cover the spread.” 

Alternatively, those who bet on the Jazz would only need them to have won or lost by less than 7 points.

Money Line

Money line is the simplest of the betting strategies. When placing a bet – you only need to state whom you think is going to win a game. 

Money lines are designed to consider the odds of a game – so to bet on a “sure thing” will result in fewer winnings than if you were to bet the same amount on the underdog.

Therefore, to win big, you either must take the long shot, like the Orlando Magic, or bet more money on the assumed winners, such as the Miami Heat.

Handicap Betting 

To keep games more competitive and interesting to all parties, handicap betting is sometimes utilized in tandem with the above methods.

Before a game begins, the favorite starts with a negative balance of points, or the underdog begins with a surplus. The final score is then combined with the handicap. This new score is used to determine which wagers were successful. 

This makes a more engaging game because even the biggest mismatches are still worthwhile.  

Common Mistake to Avoid  

Make Sure to Research Until Tip-off

In other sports, lineups are announced hours before play, enabling you to place wagers in advance. In football, for instance, the roster is released the morning of the game. However, up until tip-off, a basketball player can be cut from the game bench. 

It is vital to avoid overconfidence and to keep a close eye on the lineup until the first whistle, because that star player, who was used in calculating the game’s odds, might not play. 

Diversify the Statistics 

Though a professional NBA team will play dozens of games in the regular season, their game totals do not even come close to the MLB, where each team plays about 162 games.

However, while there is not the same excess of raw data – there are basketball-specific metrics that can be used to place smart bets. 

Many fans place wagers only on points per game, but those who are savvier will include rebounds, successful 3-pointers, and turnover rates in their calculations.

Forgetting Players are Humans 

An often-overlooked metric is a simple fact that players are people who can suffer injuries, schedule exhaustion, and travel fatigue.

Yes, they are elite examples of athletic ability and potential – but, they still get joint pain and pulled muscles. It is crucial to be aware of strenuous travel schedules or the number of games a player has played that week. 

These details seem negatable but can have a heavy impact on the performance of an athlete.

Media and Highlight Reels

One of the most common mistakes made by beginners, is believing everything they see in the media about a team or being entranced by highlight reels. However, because of the point totals and level of play – the margins are slim, and any edge needs to be monitored closely.

It is easier to just follow big names, listen to the distilled talking points of sports news shows, or watch the highlights.

However, it is far more prudent to do your research and independently review statistics and player data. The only way to truly succeed is to watch the games and do the work.

Conclusion 

Basketball is one of the most popular sports in the United States, and with good reason. Between the legendary players and the game itself, we are all indebted to James Naismith, who invented the sport in 1891. 

If you utilize the above betting methods and avoid the common mistakes – betting on basketball will quickly become your new favorite pastime.

11 Strategies for Gaining an Edge in FanDuel Contests

Avatar Of Mahesh Ck

Published

on

The daily fantasy sports landscape is littered with penniless, seasonal league converts.  Minnows routinely lose big bucks to players with deep pockets, statistical savvy, and superior DFS tools.

So how does a daily fantasy novice become profitable on a platform filled with hungry sharks?

Today I detail eleven strategies that any DFS player can implement to increase their chances for success on one of the premier daily fantasy sites online: FanDuel.  While applying these tips won’t guarantee big jackpots, it will undoubtedly increase your chances of success.  

1.  Familiarize Yourself with only the Most Common Contest Types

Although Steve Jobs was a bit of a kook, he knew a little something about success.  Why be average at many things when you can become a master at one?

“Do not try to do everything.  Do one thing well.”  –Steve Jobs

FanDuel has seven contest types and five-game styles for the NFL alone.  As a DFS novice, you need to familiarize yourself with the most standard contest types (in this order):

  • Head-to-heads
  • 50/50s 
  • Tournaments

These three styles will be your bread and butter as you build the confidence to increase your weekly contest volume.  Once you master one of these and become consistently profitable, start experimenting with another.

2.  Use Proven DFS Tools to Gain an Edge

Fantasy sharks don’t pour over single rosters, making minor updates as they perform manual research.  They use the best DFS tools for quickly creating and managing multiple lineups across many contests.

You shouldn’t start competing in a large volume of contests, but you can still use daily fantasy software tools to gain an edge from week to week. For instance, lineup optimizers and roster management tools can help you choose the perfect lineup for your chosen contest type.  

Considering factors like weather, match-ups, and historical performance, they do all of the heavy-lifting so you can focus on identifying lucrative contests. 

3.  Consume DFS Content From Proven Authorities

DFS tools are great, but you need to stay informed on the latest player news and trends to maintain an advantage over the competition.  Follow one or two daily fantasy new sites that you can reference if you need to dig into analytics or make a last-second judgment call.

But not all daily fantasy news sites are created equal.  The best DFS research sites have skins on the wall and a proven track record of success.  

Sites like The Fantasy Footballers and FantasyPros produce top-notch daily fantasy content.  I use both when prepping for my daily contests.

4.  Learn How Contest Types Affect Roster Schemes

To be a profitable FanDuel player, you need to understand the best strategy for each contest.  In other words, you’ll need to adjust your playing style based on contest types. 

But how does contest type affect strategy?  Shouldn’t you want to start the best possible roster, no matter what?

Not exactly.  The fact is, every player has a projected floor and ceiling each week.  These numbers represent the lowest and highest projected point output for each player.

For instance, in large tournament contests, you have to maximize your potential point output.  So for these contests, you should select players with the highest ceilings, even if they also have very low floors.  In other words, it makes sense to target boom-or-bust players.

On the other hand, in head-to-head contests, you want players with high floors (even if their ceiling isn’t much higher).  You want consistent players who you can count on to give a solid performance.

5.  Take Advantage of Beginner-Only Contests 

Most DFS hosts support some beginner-only contests.  These contests only allow players who have played in a limited number of contests, ensuring you won’t have to contend with sharks as you learn the ropes.

Note: FanDuel beginner contests are currently limited to players who have competed in fifty or fewer contests.  Additionally, users have to verify their identity when signing up, so you can be assured that your opponents are indeed new FanDuel players.

You should absolutely take advantage of beginner-only contests to gain experience as a new FanDuel user.  It’s a great way to build your bankroll against lesser competition while you get accustomed to the platform.

6.  Gain Confidence by Competing in Free and Inexpensive Contests

There is no substitute for experience when it comes to competing in DFS.  Especially as a novice, you should take advantage of free and cheap contests to hone your skills. 

FanDuel offers free contests for just about every major sports league.  Although most of these are massive freeroll competitions, they are still a great place to test your tournament chops.

Fanduel doesn’t offer many free, non-tournament contests anymore.  But luckily, these free contests have been replaced by practically free games.

If you adjust the entry-fee filter in the FanDuel lobby, you’ll see that there are many dollar and sub-dollar contests available.  These games are the best place to build confidence before you enter more competitive contests. 

7.  Play in FanDuel Tournaments Only Sparingly

It’s easy to get drawn in by the marketing of big jackpot tournaments.  Who wouldn’t want to take down a million-dollar grand prize?

Regardless of the hype, it’s doubtful that you will ever win a tournament with a seven, six, or even five-figure payout.  But that’s ok because the ultra-successful FanDuel players don’t spend a significant portion of their bankroll on tournaments.

The sharks at FanDuel (or any DFS host for that matter) make their money by playing in winnable contests.  And they play in many, many contests every week.

If you’re going to become a consistent winner at FanDuel, dedicate only a small portion of your weekly bankroll to tournaments. The vast majority of your contests should be against limited (and preferably, inexperienced) competition.

8.  Scale-Up Only When You Start to Win Consistently

So how do the top earners at FanDuel make so much money?  Simple: they scale up.  And they do so on a fantastic scale.

One study found that the top 1% of DFS players earned 91% of the prize money.  They do this by leveraging sophisticated software that allows them to enter and manage many concurrent contests.

Once you start to win consistently at a specific entry-fee level, enter more contests at that same price point.  But be careful to manage all of your contests well, as late scratches could make it challenging to update all of your rosters.

9.  Improve Your Bankroll Management Skills

As your contest volume increases, you’ll need to boost the time you use monitoring your contest metrics.  How will you know where to focus your efforts if you can’t quantify your contest performance? 

To make more money, you need to understand your strengths and weaknesses.  This is where bankroll management can play an important role.

Sites like Daily Fantasy Nerd offer tools to track your bankroll, so you’ll know how well you perform across various types of contests.  In addition to FanDuel, they have tools for FanDuel, Yahoo, and FantasyDraft.

Once you understand your strengths, you can increase your winnings by focusing on those contests where you’ve had proven successes.

10.  Learn to Spot Overlays For Increased Odds

The odds of winning a Guaranteed Prize Pool tournament are always poor.  But if you’re going to spend a portion of your bankroll on tournaments, you might also pick contests that have slightly better odds.

An overlay is the result of a GPP that moves forward with unfilled seats.  Because the prizes are guaranteed, that means the same amount of money is split among fewer than projected entrants.

Granted, this won’t increase your odds of winning drastically.  But you need to gain an edge whenever you can.

You can monitor the FanDuel lobby for overlays by watching the number of open seats before a tournament.  Or, simply follow the @FanDuel Twitter account for overlay notifications.

11. Leverage Seasonal Coupons and Bonuses to Stretch Your Bankroll

In seasonal money leagues, you stretch your one-time fee over the entire fantasy season. Conversely, DFS requires that you pay closer attention to your bankroll as you’ll need money every week to compete.

Because daily fantasy has reached maturity, you simply don’t see many sites offering significant sign-up bonuses.  Those that do usually implement complicated bonus structures that leave you guessing if you’ll ever really get the cash you expect.

With that said, every little bit helps when you’re just starting.  Sporadically over the last year, FanDuel has started offering true (albeit small) sign-up bonuses to attract new users.  You could also check sites that aggregate the best fantasy sports coupons to see the top deals.

So if you’re just starting (and don’t already have an account), it’s a no-brainer to take advantage of these sign-up offers.  Even a small bonus is more money you’ll have to learn the ropes.

Conclusion

When it comes to being a successful FanDuel player, there is no silver bullet.  To be a contender, you’ll need to improve your game in multiple areas.

Invest in proven tools, hone your contest strategies, learn better money management, and replicate your successes.  Only then can you be a profitable fish in a sea of sharks.

Four Reasons Why Golf Is More Exercise Than You Think

Four Reasons Why Golf Is More Exercise Than You Think

Golf—isn’t that the sport where people stroll around in the sunshine and catch up with their buddies? It’s not real exercise! 

If that is your impression of golf, then think again. 

Far from being a passive sport, golf is quite strenuous. It incorporates skills like balance and coordination, mental focus, strength output, and cardiovascular exercise. Here are four reasons why taking up golf could have more benefits for your physical health than you think.

1. Walking 

Walking is excellent for your health. The trouble is, most of us don’t walk anywhere these days. 

Most golf courses are spread over vast distances and often incorporate hilly terrain, as that is the nature of the game. Just striding out between the holes will improve your cardiovascular fitness, even better if you carry your bag.

If you are carrying your bag, ensure it is well balanced and doesn’t damage your spine or shoulders. You would do well to shop for the best golf accessories in 2022 to help you ensure you are ready to hit the ground…walking.

Improving your heart and lung health doesn’t have to be high-impact like biking or running. Indeed, walking purposefully and at a good pace has vast health benefits.

2. Strength Training

Try and hit a golf ball successfully, and you will quickly discover that it requires far more power and technique than you think. All pro golfers have a swing coach and will regularly hit swing speeds of over 100mph.

Of course, most amateurs won’t come anywhere near those impressive stats, but hitting a golf ball requires far more strength, power, and flexibility than most people think.

3. Balance

A key attribute that any golfer needs is good balance; core strength and fitness are fundamental to achieving that.

Many keen golfers will practice exercises away from the fairway, which target the abdominal muscles and the lower back, and, of course, core strength is vital to protect against injury.

4. Focus

Golf requires concentration. It’s a chance to switch off that cell phone and enjoy some conversation time with your buddies until your turn is up when it’s time to focus on your shot.

Mental focus and concentration are a workout for the brain. It keeps the mind working in good order and gives you a break from worries and anxieties. Golfing can keep you sharp physically and mentally. Not to mention, social interaction is another positive for your health.

Final Thoughts

If you don’t fancy the thought of the gym and running seems too much like hard work, why not discover golf or re-visit the game if you have played before?

Golf offers numerous health benefits in a more sophisticated and engaging way. It’s a workout for the mind and body with plenty of time outside in the fresh air.

Golf is also sociable and a chance to escape from the modern world in beautiful locations. It’s even a good excuse for a holiday, and you can play golf in almost any country in the world.

The No Deposit Bonus: Everything You Need to Know

Avatar Of Mahesh Ck

Published

on

Nowadays, gambling has become a sought-after activity; almost everyone has tried to gamble. With such knowledge, providers of gambling services have found ways to be creative and innovative to keep customers and draw new ones. Some ideas that best online casinos employ include promotions and bonuses, which include the no deposit bonus.

Simply put, the no deposit bonus is free money, or rather it is free money or free spins given to new customers to allow them to try out the casino games without any true risk.

Many casinos offer this bonus, but wagering requirements must be met before enjoying this reward. Some of these bonuses are technical, so this article should do the work of educating you on the intricacies of a no deposit bonus and how to go about using them.

What is a no deposit bonus?

As already mentioned, a no deposit bonus is a token of cash or free spins to a new player without necessarily depositing any money into their betting account. This way, the gambler gets to try out games without risking any real money.

Mostly these rewards are given as a welcome bonus and seldom as promotions to even older players. First off, to benefit from it, you would have to have an account with the casino, after which the bonus will be added to your account.

How does it work?

As easy as it seems, one still needs to be familiar with how no deposit bonus works. Players often neglect this reward, but it is an excellent way to get something going. Frequently questions asked about this bonus include:

  • Can I hit a winning streak with the no deposit bonus?
  • Can I withdraw my winnings if I bet on my no deposit bonus?
  • Can I withdraw the no deposit bonus?
  • Can I use the no deposit bonus to play any game?

Well, first off, even though the no deposit bonus is a small gift from the casino, you can hit a winning streak when you gamble the right odds. In the terms and conditions, the casino mostly spells out the requirements for the withdrawal of money acquired from the no deposit bonus. It is very important to stick with well-known and reputable casinos. Here, terms like wagering limit are spelt out without ambiguity.

You cannot withdraw the no-deposit bonus immediately; you must reach a certain limit first. Let us consider this example:

If a casino has a wagering requirement that is 50 times the bonus offered, and you are on a $5 no deposit casino, then you are expected to make $250 before you are permitted to withdraw the cash. This might not seem easy, but it is quite easy if you know what to bet. Many players have turned their bonus into a small fortune.

Some of these no deposit bonuses are time-sensitive, meaning it lasts for a particular period. If it is not used within this period, it expires. One is usually expected to use it between a month and a few weeks.

How to receive a no deposit bonus

It is very simple to get this reward; one might say it is the simplest reward to claim. If you are a new player, follow the following:

  • Registration: This reward is often given if you successfully register on a platform. Here you will be required to input your information such as email, name, phone number, etc. This is to ensure you are up to the age of gambling needed and curb fraud.
  • Activities on the platforms: the casino might require you to complete some tasks. This might be a social media post or some other requirement for which, upon completion, you get the reward.
  • Streaming: participating in live broadcasts and streaming games and also subscribing to a channel and all that
  • Loyalty program: loyal players are consistent and active, and they are often given special rewards. Being a loyal player improves your chances of getting the no deposit reward.

Wagering requirement

Almost all casino bonuses have requirements attached to them. The no-deposit bonus is not an exception; it has higher requirements than most types of bonuses. The requirements are made in such a way that it keeps the gambler playing for a while. Most players enjoy the no deposit bonus and just run away afterwards.

Every casino has its unique requirements; there is no general yardstick for stipulating these requirements. Some platforms have low ranges such as X15 or X20, whereas some have high ranges such as X40 or X50; it might even go higher in some casinos.

Now let us practically look at what a wagering requirement is:

  • A casino gives you a $10 no deposit bonus upon registration
  • The requirement states that you must roll over the bonus or play until you make 50 times the value of the bonus in a month.
  • This suggests that you must bet $500 a month before redeeming the cash won with the bonus cash.

Note that you are not limited to a specific game; different games will give you different values. So through the weight of each game, you know which is better to wager on. Most casinos weigh such that slots have a better value than table games. So keep that in mind.

Conclusion

When it comes to no deposit bonus, there is a lot of this to be aware of. First, you must consider the wagering requirements. Also, you must keep in mind that these bonuses are perishable, meaning that if you do not use them in a specific time, they become inactive.

Besides, when betting your bonus, try games with the highest weight; this way, it will be easy to play through the wagering requirement.

No deposit bonuses are a nice way to make money without investing real money. If used wisely, you can make a small fortune off it.

First, poker is not a game of chance – it’s a game of skill.

Once you’ve found a poker room that you’re comfortable with, take some time to familiarize yourself with the software and interface.

When starting, it’s essential to play at lower stakes than you might be used to. This will allow you to get a feel for the https://gamingsafe.me/gaming-guide/poker/ game and get comfortable with the betting process without risking too much money.

Poker should be enjoyable – after all, that’s why most people play. Don’t get too caught up in trying to win money; remember to relax and have fun. If you’re not enjoying yourself, it’s probably time to take a break.

What are the rules?

Poker rules vary depending on the game, but some basic concepts are always the same. Each player is generally dealt a hand of cards, and the goal is to create the best possible hand using those cards. A ranking system determines the value of each hand, and the player with the best hand wins the pot – the money that all players bet during the hand.

Conclusion
