Improving your game

How to keep your sports betting techniques sharp while on lockdown

At some point, this halt in the sports world will end, and we will be back to betting on games. Now is a good time to explore some new theories, tools and web sites.

Today we will focus on the Rockets via SBD Sharp, a trend-based site that takes a different approach. Basically, it acts as a data tool that looks at teams and leagues performances over time, and tracks how much money could have been made based on different plays, including ATS, money line and over/unders.

Whither the Rockets?

For instance, this breakdown shows how the Rockets fared in money line wagers. As underdogs, they were 6-5, which would have brought a positive ROI of 100.18 percent. So by simply playing the Rockets only as underdogs, you would have a nice profit.

Keeping track

Analyzing results is a must for anyone who is trying to make a longterm profit. Finding trends is the key to successful betting, because in the end you are trying to make your best possible guess. Taking as much of the guesswork out is critical to success. While we are on lockdown, finding new tools is essential, and this is a very good one.

Winning over time is not easy, so arming yourself with as much intel as possible is a good thing. It is even more important now, because with nothing to bet on, plugging the leaks in your wagering can really pay off in the long run when the action does return. The NBA had developed some definitive trends during the 2019-20 season, and it will be interesting to see how those play out when basketball returns.

Every bit of knowledge helps, and this is a good site to play around for when the games return.

Carlos Beltran missed out on his first opportunity to be inducted in the Hall of Fame this week, and we discuss how his involvement in the 2017 sign-stealing scandal may have played a role.

Plus, are we seeing a turning of the tide with national baseball writers and their opinion of the Houston Astros?

Bob Nightengale wrote this about Carlos Beltran and the Hall of Fame recently:

But we’re really going to ignore all of that and admonish him for participating in the Astros’ sign-stealing scandal.
Really?
Are we going to do the same with everyone who played for the Red Sox and Yankees during those years, too, when they were fined and disciplined for the illegal use of Apple Watches and dugout phones to relay signs?
Should we hold that against future Hall of Famer Justin Verlander, who obviously didn’t benefit from the sign stealing as a pitcher, but didn’t tell his teammates to stop it?
Enough already.
We’re not talking about performance-enhancing drugs here. Sign stealing has been going on for the past 100 years. There are teams who have used hidden cameras for years. Team employees flashed signs from outfield seats and scoreboards.

Check out the video above as we break it all down.
