The Public Loves To Bet Football at a Sportsbook

Sportsbook odds are bet by the public far more than any other type of sports betting odds.

The public loves football and they have a definite impact on the sportsbook odds. Let’s examine the public factor with football betting at an online sportsbook. Sportsbook gamblers that bet football oftentimes lose money.

Surprisingly though, the public continues to bet the same way at the online sportsbook. If you know that the public is betting losers, and you know that the more they like something the less valuable it is, doesn't it make sense to not follow along? Better still, wouldn't it even make more sense to be on the other side, with the sportsbook?

After all, the sportsbook is not in business because the masses are usually right? So you want to bet on the New England Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Indianapolis Colts as home favorites at the sportsbook? Sure, you and everyone else. And that is often the problem in online sportsbook betting.

Sportsbook oddsmakers are not just going to let you wager on those teams without making you pay through the nose, which means that you will often be getting less than equal value on the most popular and desirable teams.

When you are betting with obvious plays at the online sportsbook, you are, in essence, tipping your hand to the sportsbook oddsmakers and allowing them to rip you off. If you want to win money at the sportsbook you really have to be careful about following the public. That can mean you sometimes have to take bad teams.

The public won’t do it though. The sportsbook oddsmakers, most importantly, know that there will be a lot of betting opposition on bad teams and they raise the price up on the other side as a result, often in the attempt to “sweeten the pot” of the less desirable side. That makes bad teams worth looking at sometimes on the sportsbook line.

Remember when you are betting at the sportsbook that you not only have to win the game, you must cover the pointspread. This is why bad teams can sometimes be a good bet at the sportsbook.
