How to Bet on Baseball

Team action against a listed pitcher: This one is very similar to the previous one, the only difference is that here you need the opposite listed pitcher to start the game, the one for your chosen team can vary and you will still have action.

Even though it is said that you can get better profits when wagering on baseball, most people will avoid placing wagers on this sport because the betting lines might appear a bit different than the regular point spread, and because we want to shed some light on the subject, we have created this article.

Michael Hill is an avid sports fan and a sports writer who has been in the betting and price per head industry for years. Michael writes about his experience and offers tips for other aspiring entrepreneurs who wish to make a living with sports bookmaking.

Price Per Head

Money Lines:

This is the first element we should analyze. So, as long as your chosen pitcher starts, you will have an active bet.

Team action: This option allows you place a wager that doesn’t depend on pitchers, although if there is a change in listed pitchers, the odds might vary.

On the other hand, if you were to bet on a 20 cent line, you would be getting a +125 line on Milwaukee, which means fewer profits, and even though it doesn’t sound as a lot of cash, when it comes to losing 10 cents on every dollar during a full baseball season, losses can be considerable.. In the event of one of the listed pitchers not starting, then the wager is voided and the funds are returned to the player.


Here you are betting on the combined number of runs accumulated by both teams at the end of a given game, and on baseball, runs on extra innings will also count  when the game has gone over nine innings.

Run Lines:

This one is very similar to a point spread; the difference is that in baseball you are dealing with runs and not points.

Specifying a pitcher: When you bet using this option, you need to choose the pitcher for the team you are betting on, the one for the other team might vary. In baseball, an experienced bettor will always go for the  “Dime Line”, which is a line with a ten cent difference between the favorite and the underdog (for example, a bet with the Angels  as favorites at -145 and the Brewers as underdogs at +135.


A betting line on baseball will always depend largely on who the listed pitchers for the game are, and you are offered four different options:

Listed Pitcher: When you are going to bet on a baseball game with listed pitchers, the ones listed for the two teams must start the game, and a pitcher is said to have started a match after throwing the initial pitch for his team

All Bets Are Off On ‘Survivor’

Bradley said that bets taken from those alleged to be with CBS skewed the odds significantly on “Survivor” contestants.

The players’ current bets on “Survivor: Amazon” have been canceled and their money refunded, Bradley said. He declined further comment on the allegations, or on any action CBS might take.. The players in question opened accounts with BoDog before “Survivor: Marquesas,” the fourth show, and bet only on the show and no other events.

BoDog requires that bettors must not have knowledge of an event’s outcome. The biggest payoff, $8,000, came on a $1,000 bet placed on the fifth “Survivor” at 8-to-1 odds.

“We’re pretty sure this is the case,” Bradley said. The suspicion is they had insider knowledge, he said.

Callers to the offices were told that wagers were no longer being accepted on “Survivor.”

“Throughout the history of ‘Survivor,’ many have believed they knew the outcome of the show,” Ender said. “Some have been right, many have been wrong.”

By Lynn Elber

Betting on events other than sports or racing is banned in Las Vegas sportsbooks, a spokeswoman for the Nevada Gaming Control Board said Thursday. Asked if BoDog might consider legal action, he replied: “It’s not something we’d want to pursue, as a matter of precedent.”

At least two players have been identified as CBS employees and other names may be connected to the network or may be aliases, Bradley said.

He wasn’t aware of any other possible legal sanctions.

The show narrows the field to two finalists in filmed competitions.

Odds will be offered on the seventh “Survivor” but all bettors will be carefully monitored, BoDog President Rob Gillespie said in a statement.

An online sportsbook said it has dropped betting on CBS’ “Survivor” after allegedly finding that network employees were wagering – and winning – on the hit reality show.

The Costa Rica-based found at least two CBS employees betting on the show’s outcome, said BoDog spokesman Lance Bradley. Most offshore sportsbooks accept such alternative bets, said BoDog’s Bradley.

“Only ‘The X-Files’ has more conspiracy theories than ‘Survivor,’” CBS spokesman Chris Ender said. One person was said by BoDog to work in a “production role” for CBS.

For the current “Survivor,” the bets in question affected the odds for contestants Jenna Morasca of Pittsburgh, Pa., and Matthew Von Ertfelda of Washington, D.C.

They wagered correctly on who would be the final two contestants in both the fourth and fifth editions of “Survivor,” Bradley said

Make Money from Home with Ebay- Ebay Arbitrage Strategies

Autobid allows you to make your initial bid and then authorize your bids to rise at a set amount if someone else out bids your offer. The easiest way to do this and avoid auction fever, with the resulting over payment, is to set up autobid. If you have some money to invest and don’t mind waiting a bit to maximize your returns selling through an Ebay store is a good way to accomplish your goals. Time is money, so limit the amount of time the item is in your possession to maximize your profitability.

. Utilizing both a storefront to lower selling costs and auction listings for fast product turn over and store promotion is a useful strategy.

Arbitrage on Ebay is just exactly what you may be thinking. You take your profit margins off the difference between what you buy for, what you sell for, less your listing and closing fees.

Making money selling with Ebay arbitrage is not difficult, but you will need a few basic skills to get you started. People who make money from arbitrage buy low and sell at a higher rate without holding onto the product or commodity for more time than is absolutely necessary. Ebay stores are much less expensive for volume listings and will result in lower overall selling fees increasing your profit margins. Most auctions closing in prime time will go for prices either at or above market value, although some will close lower than they should. Take a look at the auction listings and see how the ones with the highest closing prices were written and then incorporate the basic layout in your auction listing.

How to Make Money on Ebay

Make money with Ebay at home is both an excellent and legitimate way to earn extra money fast. Focusing on unique products with high desirability will allow you to turn over your merchandise quickly enough to keep even the most rabid bargain hunter browsing through your Ebay stores looking for your best and latest deals.

What You Will Need to Make Money on Ebay with Arbitrage

One of the best make home from money with Ebay strategies ever is Ebay Arbitrage. Usually these items have very poorly written auction listings, new sellers, or sellers with questionable feedback ratings. With autobid, you set the upper limit of your bidding range so there is no worry that you will end up paying more than you wanted to for the item. They make their money off the flux in prices in the marketplace.

Upon winning an item you should make your payment immediately to the seller via Paypal to speed the transaction. Do give yourself every opportunity to improve the selling price of your Ebay auction listings. Even more astonishing is how rapidly you can build a full store inventory of highly profitable items with very little front money. Another advantage of using the autobid feature is that you do not need to baby sit the auctions you are bidding on at any time, the program does it for you. First, it helps if you have an idea of what collectibles and other unique goods are worth. Look for items with at least 200% markup wherever possible and a solid history of 50% or better auctions closing as sales. You are looking for items with huge value that you can pick up for a pittance, relist either at auction or in an Ebay store immediately and resell quickly. The higher your potential profit margin, the lower you can list your auctions to guarantee the auction will close with bids. Make the decision on an item and move on looking for other great items to resell.

Another way to improve the profitability of your Ebay business is to decrease the cost of your Ebay listing fees. Some people elect to do both, turning the more expensive parts of their merchandise around more quickly by listing a portion of their items at auction and then promoting their store via their auction listings. You look for very low priced items at auction which are closing soon and are a steal to purchase. Provide one and you will make the sale.

After you have established that you have an item which is potentially profitable, you can go ahead and place your bid. One other point, your auction listings must also close with enough time for you to have the item mailed to you before you can reship it to another, so be careful of your time frames. If you have enough money to let your items sit around for awhile before you resell them, making use of an Ebay store rather than auctions is a good way to go. In general though, auctions closing at less peak traffic times or on slower days will be where the values are most easily found. Your search will now bring up the history of the closing prices of similar items and what they have closed for. As a rule, auctions closing during the evening hours throughout the week and during daytime hours to early evenings on the weekends do the best price wise. The only thing you are after is a way under priced product that you can relist immediately and resell quickly for a profit. As soon as you have sent your payment, rewrite and relist the item for auction.

The higher your potential profit margins the better your chances of making a solid return on your investment for your time. Go to the advanced search section, put in the description title of the item as it is listed and tick the box which shows closed auctions.

Once you have done your basic price research, you will know the possible upside potential of the items you are thinking about buying to resell. Be certain to make your auction listing better than the one that did not sell, or adjust the closing time of the auction a bit to help improve the selling price. If you are careful in your research and look for high quality, high profit margin items to resell you will easily be able to generate a solid income through the use of Ebay arbitrage. What is arbitrage exactly? The term arbitrage comes from the financial world and means the simultaneous purchase and sale of the same product or commodity. You will also need to take the condition of the item and the number of listing competing into consideration when making your selections. If you question the worth of a product you are considering buying, your best bet is to sign into your Ebay account and do a search for the item you are considering purchasing for immediate resale. Knowing your prices is helpful, but not essential to your success. Everyone loves a deal on Ebay

10 Tips for Betting on Football

He is not taken in by being involved in USC-Notre Dame just because it is the biggest watched game of the day. “Common wisdom says that over the course of a long football season the average man or woman will pick approximately 50 percent winners. Consider Underdogs – “In the long-run, it’s easier to win betting on the underdog,” Konik says. “For example, if you have a $1,000 bankroll for the season, you should generally bet no more than $50 a game.”

While these tips don’t guarantee you’re going to win, hopefully they can make you a little less square and a little more sharp in your picks this season. Chasing losses is the fastest way to the poor house.”

But that doesn’t mean you have to bet like a “square” and throw away your hard-earned money.

But even though the math says it’s virtually impossible to win on a consistent basis, Americans continue to bet on football. They use powerful computers that can process millions of bits of data and produce a more accurate point-spread line than the bookmakers.”



Moseman agrees and especially likes home underdogs. There are almost an infinite number of scenarios that can happen in a single football game.

“Most people with an understanding of football gambling bet between 3 percent and 5 percent of their bankroll, increasing when they win and reducing when they lose,” Vaccaro says. These books change their numbers according to the betting patterns of their customers, so it is not entirely uncommon to find two or three point differences in the lines.”

9. To be a successful sports bettor you need to operate with a clear mind.”

“The biggest mistake that amateur bettors make is they increase their bets when they are losing,” Sevransky says.

Newspapers and popular sports sites routinely publish the lines or point spreads for games, and football insiders offer their picks to viewers each week on ESPN and other cable networks. “In trying to bamboozle potential customers, many services make claims about having scouts all over the country that give them inside information and promise 70 or even 80 percent winners, as if the bookmakers were the biggest suckers in the world.

Ted Sevransky, a well-known Las Vegas gambler and sports consultant with, agrees.

“There is probably no better bet in sports than playing an underdog at home,” Moseman says. Also, being “in action” can make a dull late-afternoon game (Buffalo vs. Oakland comes to mind) seem like the Super Bowl. Bet at the Right Time – “The sharp bettors tend to bet underdogs, and they tend to bet them early,” Moseman says. Avoid Chasing Bets – “Don’t do it! There is no worse way to mismanage your bankroll than to chase your bets after a losing day,” cautions Moseman on the dangerous practice of trying to immediately win back your losses. Slim underdogs regularly win outright.

8. “Over the course of several seasons, the percentage of bettors who turn a profit is minuscule.”

“The talking heads on TV know nothing about sports betting,” says Sevransky. In fact, sports bettors must pick 52.4 percent winners just to break even.”

“A square is the average, unsophisticated gambler whose decision making is based on hunches, media manipulation, or spurious systems that cannot overcome the bookmaker’s inherent mathematical advantage,” Konik explains.

Another difference between squares and sharps is how they approach betting on game day.

And remember, in the immortal words of “Fast” Eddie Felson, “Money won is twice as sweet as money earned.”

“A sharp or smart has a plan of what he wants to do,” says Vaccaro, the director of sports operations and public relations at Lucky’s Race and Sports Book in Las Vegas. Research Football Services – “Most sports services realize that most people who sign up with them are insecure,” Gordon warns. Otherwise, you’re better off doing your own research.”

“The bookies fear and despise a tiny coterie of professional bettors known as ‘the sharps,’” Konik says. Not all games work according to this formula, but it is usually a good rule of thumb.”

So, how much are we gambling each football season?

4. “Because alcohol clouds your judgment and usually helps you to make rash decisions you usually wouldn’t otherwise make. “In the NFL, a game will often be totally turned around by one or two plays, or even a single penalty. “As for me, the best bet in football is betting the point spread or over/under totals on individual games. If you are going to go with a favorite, it is best to place your bet early in the week when the sharps are laying heavy money on the points. Big underdogs often find ways to cover the spread and they rarely give up toward the end of a game in front of the home crowd.”

Even Hollywood is not immune – think Two for the Money with Al Pacino and Matthew McConaughey.

5. Money Management – “This is without a doubt the most important aspect of betting on sports and possibly the most neglected,” says Morey “Doc” Moseman, a professional gambler and sports consultant with for nearly 40 years. If you want advice about sports betting, find someone who has a successful track record. “The sharps are usually members of a betting syndicate privy to the most up-to-date information on injuries, weather, game plans, and, most important, the real power of the teams involved.

6. Giving 11 to 10 odds is almost always the cheapest price you can give.”

Also, it’s probably a good idea to disregard advice from the myriad of ex-players and football experts you see on television each week. “When you’re in a good rhythm and winning, you want to increase your bets. The only touts bettors should consider are the ones who talk about the long haul and realistic winning percentages, which are in the upper 50 percent to lower 60 percent range.”

Certainly not back into the pockets of the average bettor. “If you become an expert on a smaller conference like the WAC, you have a good chance to beat the house because sports book operators do not have the time or resources to follow this conference the way you can.

Although exact figures are impossible to calculate, according to Jimmy Vaccaro, widely considered to be Las Vegas’ most influential bookmaker, Americans probably wager more than $50 billion a year on NFL and college football combined.

“A square or recreational player might have a vague plan, but after two Corona’s he will definitely run to the window and make a hasty decision on the USC-Notre Dame game because he wants to be involved in the party atmosphere,” Vaccaro says.

3. “There will be more discrepancy in the numbers at different sports books. “The key to proper money management is to be sure not to bet more than you can afford to lose.”

Michael Konik, a sports writer and best-selling author of The Smart Money (Simon & Schuster 2006), explains why it is so hard for the recreational gambler to win at betting on football. “Thus, the bookies love and cherish the squares.”

So, how much should you bet a game?

However, Konik adds that there are some bettors who actually know how to beat the bookies. Avoid Exotic Bets – “For very skilled handicappers, with a proven track record, there can, at least in theory, be value in betting parlays,” says Gordon on the type of bet that combines two or more individual wagers. So underdogs tend to be slightly undervalued – except by the sharps.”

7. The only locks that exist are those that need keys to open them.”

“In an average season, fewer than one bettor in twelve turns a profit,” Gordon says. Locks Don’t Exist – “Anyone who has watched sports for about a month realizes that the difference between winning and losing, especially against the spread, can be infinitesimally small,” Gordon says. If you like an underdog, it is best to get your bet in as late as possible, where there is heavy action from squares on favorites. There is a wealth of information on the Internet; it is just up to you to find it and research it daily.”

“The standard bet requires gamblers to lay $11 for every $10 they want to win with the extra $1 or 10 percent known as the juice,” Konik says. The payout is just the same as far as he is concerned. “If you listen to their advice, you are sure to lose. And why not? We have unconditional love for the sport and betting $50 or $100 on a game adds an extra rush of adrenaline. If North Texas is his best bet on a Saturday then that is his bet. Thanks to the juice, the only one who profits in this scenario is the bookmaker.

And where does all that money go?


Betting on football games; whether it’s through a local bookie, an offshore Internet site or a Nevada casino (still the only legal place in America to make football bets), most of us have done it or know of someone who has. The NFL, for example, will have very similar numbers at most of the betting shops you visit. But, when you’re struggling, that’s when you want to reduce your bet size until you get out of your slump. “Teams play inspired ball at home. “Squares usually bet later in the week and they tend to pick the favorites. Drinking and Gambling Don’t Mix – “There is a reason the casinos in Las Vegas supply you with free drinks while you are gambling,” Moseman says. Shop For Numbers – “Another important aspect of betting on football is shopping for the best number,” Moseman explains. He loses year after year, according to Dan Gordon, a top football handicapper and author of How to Beat the Sports Books (Cardoza Publishing 2005).

So, is it possible for the average square to become a little sharper in making football bets this season? According to professionals like Vacarro, Konik and Gordon, amateur bettors have the best chance to win if they demonstrate a little patience and follow the 10 basic tips below. On college you will be able to find different lines at different sports books. “He is not jaded by teams and does not bet with his heart. Focus on Conferences – “The best way to win money betting football is to develop a niche and follow it closely,” Moseman advises. “Most people prefer to bet on the ‘better’ team, the one that will probably win the game.

It’s all about individual preference – for example, if every member of your household had the same PC and specifications, they would still never agree on which browser is best. The add-ons, and tool-bars each has, as well as many other factors all determine the speed of any browser on your computer.

Browsers are like vehicles: in as much as you want to travel fast, securely and in style with lots of cool features. Each browser has tools and other gimmicks that are unique which makes life surfing much quicker and slicker..

One of the most common browser used today is Internet Explorer. Many people think there are no others – but there are and much better. Includes safe browsers designed for children to use safely.

Having a variety of browsers installed makes using the Internet easier. Because all browsers are not compatible with every website you visit. Who is correct? Answer: Both! That’s because the best browser is the one that meets their needs and more importantly, their device. The browser I use depends on my journey

The Advantages of Forex Arbitrage Calculators

The Forex arbitrage calculator can be widely found in the Internet and can be downloaded for free or a fee. However, one should understand that the difference is only temporary, as the market will need to correct its prices so that there is equality in prices of the currencies. It is also more accurate in its calculations than humans are. In other words, in terms of the human problems with speed, efficiency, and accuracy, the calculator can overcome. Before getting the real software, it is best to look at the free demo and try out their trial versions to ensure that the software is suitable to your needs and is truly reliable.

In Forex arbitrage, a trader basically buys a currency from one market and then sells it off at another. Thus, it is important for a trader to quickly detect such opportunities, make the necessary calculations, decide if the differences is worthwhile, and then trade. The calculator basically helps to identify arbitrage opportunities through its calculations. The good thing with the Forex arbitrage calculator is that it can do what a human cannot do. For traders who want to do well in Forex arbitrage, this calculator is an important tool to maximizing their gains. The market in which it buys from will have a lower price quote of a currency than the market it sells to, allowing the trader to gain profit from the differences that occur between the two markets. This correction can happen very quickly. This process, if done manually, will require time and patience, which means you may lose the opportunity if you are not quick enough. However, with the presence of the Forex arbitrage calculator, this problem can be overcome.. They work on real time and keep you accessible to the quotes of different currency pricings, there and then

Gambling – advice for family and friends

You don’t need to talk about your concerns if you don’t want to. It is important to protect yourself from any harm that may arise from your family member or friend’s problem with gambling.

Seek legal, financial and other advice to explore your options.

Budget and allow each member of the family some spending money, including the problem gambler. Contacting a gambling counsellor is a good place to start.

Do not lend EFTPOS or credit cards or share ‘pin’ numbers, or leave that information where it can be found.

Photocopy (and keep in a safe place) copies of important documents such as house title, marriage and birth certificates, and tax file numbers.

Don’t sign anything you don’t understand or are not prepared to pay for. Consider talking frankly to other affected members of the family so you can support each other.

Counselling or self-help groups can assist you in making decisions about your relationship.

You have the right to feel safe, and emotionally and financially secure. Do not help them lie and deceive.

Things to remember

You have the right to feel safe, and emotionally and financially secure.

Seek professional advice about how to protect your family’s assets and income.

Talk to trusted people who will not judge you or the person that gambles.

A healthy diet, regular exercise and adequate rest can improve your wellbeing, and increase your resilience to stress. Consider talking frankly to other affected members of the family so you can support each other.Socialise with others

Coping with a loved one’s problem gambling can be very distressing. Having time out to do things you like can stop you from getting consumed by someone else’s gambling. For example, let them deal with creditors and their employer. 13 11 14

SuicideLine Victoria Tel. Maintain your friendships, continue with your interests and hobbies, and do things that you find enjoyable.Look after your health

Coping with a family member or friend’s gambling behaviour can be exhausting. Talk to trusted people who will not judge you or the person that gambles. Use your energy to help change your own situation rather than theirs.

Don’t try to take control of the gambler’s life. You can convey a willingness to support them. Readers should note that, over time, currency and completeness of the information may change. Suggestions include:

Inform the gambler of the negative impact that their gambling is having on you.

It’s not your fault. It is important to remember:

You cannot force your family member or friend to acknowledge that their gambling is a problem. A gambling counsellor can help you avoid a bad credit history if you have joint credit or loans with the gambler.

Take control of finances, for example, organise direct debits for bills, mortgages and regular debits, and limit access to cash. Counselling or self-help groups can help you make important decisions about your relationship.

Gambler’s Help is a free service for people who are affected by gambling.

You cannot force them to stop gambling.

No matter what you say or do, ultimately the only person who can stop gambling is the gambler. Talk with a professional who understands problem gambling if you are starting to experience overwhelming sadness, anxiety or anger. Avoid trying to protect them.

Support them in their struggle, but don’t take on their burden. If taking action puts your safety or the safety of others at risk, you may need professional help.

Relationship counselling and mediation can be a safer alternative for discussing problems and seeking solutions if there is a communication breakdown between you and the gambler. It may be helpful to seek support from others.

Your relationship with the gambler

In most cases, people who have a gambling problem have difficulty handling money when gambling opportunities exist.

This page has been produced in consultation with and approved by:

Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation

You may need to put emotional and physical distance between yourself and the gambler.

Decide if you can manage the gambler’s money. Communicate your feelings carefully and openly. If not, you may need to maintain separate bank accounts and credit cards.

Remove your name from joint accounts to avoid inheriting the gambler’s debt. Choose to say ‘I can’t do this for you, but I will be with you while you do it’.

Allow them to take responsibility for their behaviour. A gambling counsellor can give you other suggestions on how to look after yourself.Making decisions about your relationship
