Think Twice About Betting Heavy Favorites

Sportsbooks usually make you pay a premium for betting on heavy favorites. This is because the public loves to bet favorites, especially in low risk, high reward parlays. Bettors on smaller sportsbooks often get screwed by betting on clear-cut favorites on the moneyline or on futures bets. Usually, the real value is on underdogs, particularly big ones. In fact, if you blindly bet $100 on every single NFL moneyline underdog this season, you’d be up $1841. Avoid betting heavy favorites, and look to back underdogs more often. Always be wary of what favorites open at and close at on the moneyline, too. If the public is all over one side of a game, the sportsbooks may fudge the number a bit.
