Football bettors, office poolies and pickem game contestants have plenty of stats and resources at their fingertips when handicapping the game. But how many of those stats or trends are their own?
Check out the sports databases here at OddsShark.com, a huge archive of 30 years of NFL point spread data, baseball boxscore material and more that do-it-yourself handicappers can use for FREE!
Interest in historical data and odds archives continues to grow as sports handicappers and historians look to the past to try to help them predict the future. When it comes to a searchable archive of NFL odds, few resources in the world can come close to the NFL database.
Starting in 1980, every NFL point spread, over under and score is stored here in our data bank. From 1990 forward, every boxscore and stat joined the archive to forge this mammoth database.
Other sports have more or less depth of archive. For example, NBA is solid with scores, boxscores and odds from 1990 to present. The MLB and NHL databases begin in 1995. College sports are 1996 to present, so if you are looking for a college football game from 1994, it won’t be here.
The databases were established primarily for wagering and contest purposes to give handicappers a huge archive that they could sort through. This allows everyone to search their own angles and find their own trends and not rely on websites that simply display matchup reports and trends without any context.
Some questions we usually field: what line do you use in the database? We have always taken what we call a ‘consensus closing line’ which is the average of several Vegas and online sportsbooks. It is intended as a fair, representative line of what bettors would have gotten before game time. It does not track opening lines or line moves, so if you happened to have bet the Patriots at -7 on a Tuesday back in 2007 and the line closed at -5.5, our NFL database will show -5.5.
