Sports Betting Resources
There are two types of bets that every sports better should make before any other bets. These bets are arbitrage bets and EV (expected value) bets.
What are arbitrage bets? Arbitrage betting is when a bettor places a wager on both side of an outcome in order to guarantee profit no matter what the result is. Arbitrage bets happen daily but usually only for minutes. To read more on arbitrage betting, check out Odds Jam’s website and read their arbitrage page.
Expected value is a predicted value of a variable, calculated as the sum of all possible values each multiplied by the probability of its occurrence. In betting, the expected value (EV) is the measure of what a bettor can expect to win or lose per bet placed on the same odds time and time again. Again, you can check out Odds Jam website for a full page description of EV betting.
ODDS JAM – This website is packed with material for the serious sports bettors. They have guides, predictions, betting tools, calculators, arbitrage bets, EV bets, etc… If you are looking to up your odds and start winning more bets, this is the website the check out. The only knock on them is they are a little expensive, but if you win a few bets, it pays for the membership costs.
Dark Hours Odds – Another good site similar to Odds Jam. They are much cheaper. They offer a bet finder where you can find arbitrage bets. If you also have odds boosts or free bets from the sportsbooks, you can turn them into guaranteed wins with the tools on their site.
