You have seen the odds and numbers in the newspaper but don’t quite understand what they mean and which team is the favorite. You have heard terms like ‘fade’ and ‘zig-zag theory’ and ‘ATS trends’ but aren’t quite sure how they can help you win your bet.
Call this your sports betting 101 tutorial. We break down the basic information on how to read a point spread and how a teaser works, while introducing you to intermediate gambling theory that you can apply to your handicapping. Take a look around, learn money management practices that will help preserve your bankroll, learn when the moneyline is a better deal than the point spread and see how you can save money on every bet by shopping for the best line.
