When it comes to predicting an overall outcome of a sports event or a particular element or sequence, there are hundreds of components to consider which have their own level of impact on the probability and accuracy. This is not an easy task. At SportPicksWin.com we have a team of professional handicappers who dedicate all their time to their common passion - Sports.
We have established our own methodology which combines historical record statistical and probability analysis, odds line change analysis, overall sentiment interpretation, as well as latest tips and leaks on pre-match conditions, individual player news and much more.
The result of this hard work is adequately balanced between risk and reward suggestions which we are ready to share.Because there are thousands of betting options available within the market which all narrow down to risking your funds against a certain probability of an event to occur, we concentrate on only 3 types of bet types: Money Line (ML), Spread Points (SP) and Total Points (TP).
Money Line (ML)
Money Line is the most simple and basic type of wager in sport betting. The bet has two outcomes in most of the cases, when there are 2 teams or players listed and betters choose one side to win. In other words, it is simply picking a winning side and not dealing with points and spreads. However, there are exceptions depending on the sport types (such as European Football or UFC) where a “Draw” is a possible outcome. For those cases most of the bookies and sportsbook providers offer “Draw” as an option to bet on.
Spread Points (SP)
Spread Points is the type of wager on the difference between the winning team / athlete and the losing side. There are multiple forms of this wager, however the important aspect is that one is betting not on the win or loss but rather on by how much the team / athlete will win or lose by. For example, if you would wager on a game between New England Patriots and Las Vegas Riders by using a Spread Points bet, a spread of -1.5 points on New England Patriots would mean that in order to win the bet Patriots would have to score at more than 1 point. The .5 points is there to account for push. You can also bet on the underdog of s spread of +1.5 for example. In this case if the favorite wins the game by less than 1 point, you would win.
Total Points (TP)
Total Points is the type of wager on the total number of points in a particular sport event, as the name could clearly say. A bettor can wager on whether or not the total points scored by both team / athletes will go Over or Under a corresponding amount specified by the bettor.
What is Odds Line
We use the American style of Odds Line. The odds for favorites are accompanied by a minus (-) sign and indicate the amount you need to stake to win $100. The odds for underdogs, on the other hand, are accompanied by a positive (+) sign and indicate the amount won for every $100 staked.
What is Pick
A sport Pick is a tip / advice given by a professional sport handicapper. This tip can be either used to challenge someone’s prediction / gut feeling or can be used to wager on a sportsbook platform. Our Picks consist of at least 1 bet type tip and in some of the cases can consist of all 3 bet types depending on the league and particular event circumstances.
What is a Parlay
A Parlay is a combination of sport picks / tips on multiple sport events for either same or different leagues. Our parlay may consist of up to 10 picks (also called legs), each one consisting of one bet type. Each bet type has its own odds which are then being put together and an overall estimated Parlay Odds being calculated and presented. With the increase of the number of legs, the reward increases as well. However, the risk and reward come hand to hand which means that the probability of all legs to occur decreases which increases both the risk and reward.
