Re: What's your most profitable sport to bet on..?

Tennis and college basketball have been good to me. I get real lucky in tennis some tournaments and clean house, other than those select tournaments I usually end up losing most tennis bets through the year. College football was doing great for me untill Lousiville sucked today!

For me it is probably NBA

But not sure since I previously did not keep record, something I have addressed now

NFL seems to be the most profitable sport to wager on. Stay away from baseball, which is easier said than done

Re: What's your most profitable sport to bet on..?

Last 10 years my big 3 have been :

*NHL

*NBL

*Golf


Not a coincidence that they are not big betting sports.......the bigger the turnover on a sport the closer books follow it. Lower tier sports books can be more vulnerable.
However with that said there are exceptions, for example look at the World Basketball champs this year, basketball is a huge turnover sport. In the first week alot of those lines were way off. Due to the books really finding it tough to find out info on the lessor teams.
Always remmember where lines are instigated in this case the USA.....would u trust a USA book setting lines on Australia v Brazil ?

Personally for me it varies from year to year. AFL has always been a bit of a money spinner for me. This year Netball has been good for me

let's assume you bet equal stakes on 8 games per week ML.. and you win 5 of them .. odds around 1.5 .. you will end up losing .. as most favorites are around 1.2-1.4 anyway ..
to make real profit you need to play Lines . My problem is more of staking problem. and i don't play all games ..that is why is it one of my worst betting sports

NFL by far

NHL second

but it flies off the rails there baseball and nba kick my ass so I rarely play them anymore and tennis is hit or miss and I know that so I limit my stake to smaller amounts than I play on nfl and nhl.

Thanks Mr Flamboyant.
I look forward to it.

Taipans don't look too bad this season.
Good luck too you.

Re: What's your most profitable sport to bet on..?

Tennis is my main sport...and I earn a slight profit. That said, I'm starting to find the fine line between the right number of bets to place and a good way to stake. Hopefully I can finish the year on a high and take it into 2007

I also make the odd appearance in snooker and F1...F1 has been quite good to me this year.

I am aiming to branch out a little in the next month or so...I might target the English Premiership and I'd like to learn a lot about NBA

Tennis, men only, but it ever so important to know when to get in and when to sit out. Making a lot of bets is what sinks you.

Baseball I do the worst at.
