Handicapping Sports and Sports Books

Sports handicappers and sports investors are strongly encouraged to have more than one sports gaming source in order to shop for online values. This simply means taking the most advantageous position on every sports investment opportunity. Today there are numerous offshore sportsbooks, providing the opportunity to obtain multiple sports odds, and thus increasing the potential for a positive return.

Posted pointspreads can differ by a point or more on the same game, because lines are intended to evenly divide the wagering public’s opinion and, thus, their money. When a sportbook begins to receive more money on one side of a game than the other, they will likely move their line; however, due to the fact that there are so many gambling sportsbooks now, some houses may not receive as big of an imbalance of money as others, resulting in different lines for the same game.

Simple mathematics can easily establish the importance of “line shopping” or finding the best sports odds, as it can ultimately provide the difference between a profitable or losing week, month, or season. Random selections on 100 games should theoretically yield 50 wins and 50 losses. Assume for demonstration’s sake that 1 unit was wagered on each game. The result would be a net loss of 5 units due to the “vigorish” service fee taken by sportsbooks on each wager; however, if just FIVE of the defeats were within a point or two of the wagered line, and could have been won simply by finding a better pointspread, the result would be a 55-45 record and a net profit of 5.5 units. This is a reversal of more than 10 units on just a small number of events and with very conservative wagering. Even a half-point can be the difference between a win and a push or a push and a loss. Extrapolate the numbers over the course of a season with a more aggressive money management strategy and the gains are compounded dramatically.

Checking sports gambling odds at several sportsbooks is an absolute necessity and can be done much more quickly now than before the days of the Internet. PRO INFO SPORTS provides multiple live lines on the Handicapping Services – Sports Odds, Scores & News page.

As with any industry there are unscrupulous types to watch out for. Most of the offshore countries where sportsbooks are located require certain terms be met before they grant a license. Also, some countries are now beginning to legalize and regulate online gaming, the same as they do for other industries. Take your time in deciding who you will sign up with. Do your research on the various sportsbooks rules, promos, etc., to see if they meet your needs, and keep up to date with the latest sportsbook news.

Once your sportsbook accounts are funded, you are ready to find the best sports odds and put our handicapping and money management strategies to work for a rewarding and enjoyable sports investment venture with our Sports Handicapping Service

Deadliest Style of Martial Art

Here’s a different way of looking at the whole what is the deadliest style of martial art debate.Who cares!?Seriously. I don’t buy into the whole debate and here’s why.If you did a poll of thousands of martial artists you might get a list like thisBrazilian Jiu-jutsu and ground fightingKrav Maga and reality based self defense systemsBoxing, Muay Thai and cage fightingNinjutsu, Kung Fu, Aikido and other Eastern based martial artsModern Hybrid Fighting Styles blending multiple artsTraditional arts like Karate and Tae Kwon DoIn fact you can find forum posts all over the net from people asking “What is the deadliest style of martial art?” Or “What is the best style when learning how to street fight?” Then a bunch of forum users respond with the “best martial art” which is usually some form of cage fighting or combat sport.There are some great martial arts in this list. Many masters of these arts can demolish an attacker without thinking.Ask yourself though, is it your art or you as the martial artist that makes up your fighting ability.I would say it’s you and not your fighting style. About every martial art out there has turned out some deadly fighters.Of course let’s be real here. This is only partially true because there are some fruity martial arts out there as well. There are also some fruity martial artists out there that can help you to get stomped in a street fight. With the Internet it seems like the number of these guys has tripled each year.There’s a huge trap in the martial arts that some will fail to avoid. Putting too much faith in your style or technique and not enough in yourself as a fighter.So how do we sort through the BS when selecting a martial art? Here are some things to focus on that have less to do with your art and more to do with your ability.Attributes Training- This is completely separate from your martial art style and technique. This will include things like speed, agility, toughness, flexibility, endurance, reflexes etc. No matter what martial art you study all of these need to be improved. You can either improve them individually or train an art that improves them naturally. For example boxing and cage fighting might help you to develop toughness and speed while an art like Wing Chun or Aikido can improve your sensitivity and flow. Select a martial art that develops some of these attributes along with technique.Common Sense- Find a balance between open mindedness and common sense. Use your best judgment. If your instructor is telling you to do some ridiculous fancy technique that seems impossible to pull off in a fight, there is a good chance your instincts are right. You might want to find a new school or martial art.Here is the best advice I can give you about selecting a martial art. Decide before hand how much time you are willing to train in the art. One year? Five? Ten? Then make your decision based on that. Some arts take forever to be able to use. While some of these arts can be very effective, not everyone has three hours a day to devote to training.Then you have the simple fighting styles out there that can get you combat ready in a hurry. While no art can make you indestructible in a month, some styles are better for making a fighter quickly.Make sure that if you are only spending a little time each day that you choose a simple, functional system that doesn’t take ten years to use.
