Dogs are a man’s best friend, diamonds are a girl’s best friend and data is a sports bettor’s best friend. Making bets without researching them with statistics and data points from multiple sources is a recipe for failure. Luckily, we live in a time when sports bettors no longer have to scan newspapers or leave the house to find valuable details to inform their bets. The internet is filled with databases and websites to help sports bettors, but one of the advantage’s of Odds Shark’s databases is they’re absolutely free with no strings attached.

NFL Sports Betting Database

Most football fans are aware that Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid has a reputation of dominating his opponents following a bye week. However, with our NFL sports betting database, you can see the Chiefs are only 2-5 ATS in their last seven regular season games after a bye under Reid’s leadership. It’s easy to see how a stat like that could cause a bettor to pump the brakes on a Chiefs’ point spread bet after immediately after a bye week.

This database also allows bettors to find trends related to performances before a bye week, or when facing specific divisions or conferences. For instance, a bettor can easily see how the New York Jets have performed vs. NFC teams for the past several years or how the Buffalo Bills have performed vs. division opponents lately. Whether bettors are curious about outright wins, ATS record over Over/Under tendencies, that information is available and can also be divided up further based on home/away data or favorite/underdog data. Users can also filter this data by month to see how any team team has done in home game during the month of September for instance. 

NBA Sports Betting Database

In the era of load management, playing on the back end of a back-to-back can test a team’s depth so our NBA sports betting databasehas a separate tab to see how each team has historically done on the front and back ends of back-to-back games. This database is also a great place to see how each team has performed as a favorite, underdog, home team, away team, or in certain months. To find this data, simply select the team you’re analyzing in the “team” drop down menu and select “Any” in the opponent drop down menu. Or, if you want to see how a team has historically done vs. a specific team, select that team in the “opponent” drop down menu and select the appropriate filters below.

MLB Sports Betting Database

Serious baseball bettors know that starting pitching plays a huge role in handicapping MLB games, so our MLB sports betting database has a drop down menu where you can select a pitcher of your choice (listed alphabetically by first name) and filter their performance data by month, opponent, game type (regular season or postseason), location (home/road), and favorite/underdog. Head-to-head team data can also be sorted with the same filters, so if you’re curious how the Minnesota Twins have performed in home games vs. the Chicago White Sox, that information is easily accessible. The “VS Div/League” tab allows bettors to see how each team has performed (O/U and moneyline) vs. specific divisions. The resulting data conveniently includes the starting pitchers and moneylines for each game.

NHL Sports Betting Database

Throughout the course of a long hockey season, goalie depth is important and teams without quality backup netminders can struggle in back-to-back situations. It’s easy for bettors to get data on how each team has historically performed in back-to-back games via our NHL Sports Betting Database. The database also allows bettors to see how any team has performed in various situations (home vs. away, favorite vs. underdog, by month or vs. certain conferences). For instance, the database can tell you exactly how the New York Islanders have fared as home underdogs in November.

How to Use Sports Betting Databases

Anyone who has listened to a sports betting podcast or radio show has heard bettings trends such as, “The Chicago Bears are 4-3 ATS and 6-1 to the under in their last 7 games.” Instead of relying on pundits to selectively share their research with listeners, bettors can utilize sports betting databases to do their own research.

One of the most common mistakes sports bettors make while betting basketball and football games is betting on the point spread and blindly taking the favorite without doing research. Just because a team has a better record or is sitting atop the standings doesn’t mean they deserve an ATS bet when they’re laying a big number vs. an inferior team. The value of sports betting databases is they allow users to get granular and see how each team performs in specific situations. Of course, how a team has performed in the past isn’t a guarantee of how they’ll perform in the future, but it’s a great data point that can be combined with other tools like advanced analytics sites (i.e. or our computer picks page.

These databases have valuable information for every bettor. For instance, bettors who prefer to bet totals can dig up trends related to overs/unders for each sport, while point spread bettors can see ATS records as well as the point spread for the game to see how much teams have been covering the spread by.
