NBA Primer – Sports Betting Tips for 2020/2021 Season

NBA Primer – Sports Betting Tips for 2020/2021 Season

If it feels like the NBA just crowned its champion when the Lakers popped the champagne, well…that’s because it was.  After the most unusual year in league history, the Lakers disposed of the Heat in the Orlando Bubble a mere two months ago. With the shortest offseason ever, the NBA is back in action this week, kicking off its shortened 72 game season.  As longer-term KrackWins members know, the NBA, and specifically NBA totals, have been very good to us.  We went 255-183 (58%) for the 2018-19 season and 161-114 (+56.7 units / 58.5%) last year.  The 2019-20 result is particularly strong, given all of the uncertainty with the Bubble after the restart.  I expect to do even better this year, assuming there are no unplanned stoppages. The teams return to their home courts this year, albeit with no fans – at least to start.  Each NBA team will follow their state guidelines on allowed capacity.  By early 2021, most teams expect to allow some fans in the building, but likely not enough to...

NFL Primer – 8 Tips for Betting on Football in 2020

NFL Primer – 8 Tips for Betting on Football in 2020

There were moments over the past few months when we wondered if we would even have a season. However, being the monster that it is, the NFL power brokers put on their blinders and forged ahead. Now, after all that uncertainty, it is finally here – the NFL season is upon us. Below are my tips for betting on NFL this year. We all know that by a wide margin, the NFL is the public’s favorite sport to bet. But, what most people don’t know, is that it’s also the toughest to beat. Tight lines and traps lure the public towards danger each week. I have consistently won on the NFL over the past 25 years by doing it my way: focusing on NFL totals, teasers, individual player props, and future bets throughout the year. A few words to the wise for surviving (and thriving) in betting on NFL this year... 8 Tips for Betting on NFL Betting Tip 1: Always be able to separate entertainment vs. money. Historically, the most heavily-wagered games are not the most profitable. In fact, just the opposite is...

Should You Bet a Mistake?

Should You Bet a Mistake?

You’ve heard it a thousand times since you were a child. From your parents to your teachers to your forgetful friends: everybody makes mistakes. It is a universal truth – and generally mistakes should be forgiven. Spilling your milk or forgetting to lock the door typically happen without serious repercussions. When the consequences are more significant, we face tougher questions: who did that mistake affect and should someone be held accountable? This question has surfaced over and over in my 30 years of betting on sports. If the sportsbook makes a mistake and hangs a wrong number, or even a wrong start time, what is the ethical way to respond? Do I max bet this huge advantage? Do I notify the book of their mistake and essentially do their job for them? Do I take a small nibble and hope it doesn't get noticed? Imagine standing there with your bankroll ready, with the angel on one shoulder telling you to "do the right thing" and the devil on your other shoulder saying "they made the...

Golf Primer

Golf Primer

The PGA announced its return to action, starting next week.  The news may not garner the same enthusiasm from the masses as it would for one of the four major sports, but it brought a big smile to my face.     As KrackWins customers over the past two years know, golf wagering has been very good to my bankroll.  Over the past 15 years, head to head golf matchups have been one of, if not the most, profitable wager I make.  During the 2018-19 PGA season, KrackWins went 89-58 (+44.6 units).  During 2019-20, we were on pace to best that record, going 35-14 (+30.5 units) when play halted in March due to the pandemic.   You will not find a better golf record anywhere.  Period.  My golf handicap team is unmatched around the world in terms of course and player knowledge and insight.  Let’s talk about what to look for. When betting head to head matchups, always look for that ten cent line (-110), i.e. an even matchup.  As you know, books have widened their margins over the years on every sport...
