Getting The Best Odds Means Getting In Early

getting the best oddsUsually the way to get the best odds when placing a bet online is to place your bet as early as possible. Take for example the post I did on Betting On The AFL Finals. I posted that a little over a week ago. All the odds offered on SportingBet, as well as the other online bookies, have dropped. Some by as much as 50%.

As far as I know getting the best odds usually happens the further away from the outcome of any given match. I was talking about this with a workmate of mine and he says he places several of his bets at the beginning of the AFL season. A great bloke except for the fact that he’s a Port Power fan.

Speaking of Port Power you may well remember they were last weeks bet of the week. That was actually the post where I spoke a little about the history of the Crows and Power rivalry. You may well recall that I backed Port to win, but only because lately I’ve been losing my bets and I was hoping that placing a bet on them would bring them bad luck. Nope, as it turns out the Power was really switched on in that game and they won.That was never supposed to happen. Fremantle were the favourites and it’s been ages since they lost a home game.That bet on the Power was just to seal the deal.

Still, shit happens. Just about everyone I know was tipping Freo, but like I said in that post about sports betting tips, they’re absolute bullshit. You just never ever know who’s going to win any given game. That’s why we have so many upsets in sport. One last thing before getting to my bet of the week. You may well notice the odds changing the closer you get to the game. Usually getting the best odds means placing your bets as early as possible.

Bet Of The Week

This week Port Power is playing Hawthorne at the MCG. They shouldn’t win this game. Then again they should’ve lost against Fremantle as well. I just don’t have a choice. I have to back the Power again. Maybe this time my bet come good and Port will lose.  :tongue_out: Seeing as how bet365 was lucky for me last week I’m gonna give Sportingbet a go. Maybe they will pass on some bad vibes for all those louse Port Power fans.

I’ve had a few subscribers ask me why I didn’t include a section on sports betting tips. As I told them one of the reasons for not having a category featuring sports betting tips is that the main purpose for the site is to provide my readers with the best online sports betting sites to join. That’s the reason I named the site EZ eSports Betting. I have researched all the online sports betting sites represented on this site. I’ve found them all to be secure and they make sports betting online easy and enjoyable.

I’ve also joined several of the online sport betting sites so I can take them for a test spin. When I do that I write about my experience from being an online sports betting member of their site.

I also want to make this site enjoyable, entertaining and informative. In order to do that I made the following categories.

  • Hot Sports Babes: This has proved to be very popular among the guys :thumb_up:
  • Hot Sports Hunks: I had a few complaints from the ladies so I started this one especially for them Personally I don’t have much of an idea what makes a Hot Sports Hunk, being a male and all, and have asked for input from the women. Still waiting.  :tongue_out:
  • Sports Jokes: This section is for all sports related humour.
  • Sport News: Every now and again I do a post on some of the more interesting sporting news
  • Sports Betting Reviews: There are a lot of products out there to help the sports betting punter. This is where I post reviews of sports betting products.

You will find a complete list of categories over there on the right.

Truth About Sports Betting Tips

sports betting tips

Now comes the main reason why I don’t offer sports betting tips on this site. I personally believe that all sports betting tips are bullshit. When I started my Bet Of The Week category it had nothing to do with offering my readers tips. I just write about the sport I’m betting on any given week and why I placed my bet the way I did.

The truth about sports betting tips is that nobody can accurately predict the result of any given sporting event. If they did they would’t need to have these sites asking for people to join to get the most accurate sports betting tips. If they were that good they would be making enough money simply by collecting all their winning bets. Why do you think the bookies make so much money? Because most punters have losing bets.

I’m sure a lot of you guys have placed a bet on the advice from some friend or other. How many of them paid off? Not all that many I’m sure.

Having said that, you have more chance of winning a sports bet, in relation to those sports based on the results of two teams going head to head. Predicting a winner when it comes to sports like horse racing is a lot more difficult. I wrote about this in my post comparing sports betting to other forms of gambling.

Personally I wouldn’t pay to join a site for sports betting tips. I’d give a free site a go but I wouldn’t be upset at all if those tips didn’t turn out to be accurate. I do believe though that there are sports, such as racing, where a good knowledge of all the variables may increase the chances of a win. Someone in the know my be able to offer a sports betting tip but once again I still think those tips just may not pan out.

So, how many accurate sports betting tips have you received? Let me know in the comments below.
