Las Vegas sportsbooks have realized that football fans will bet at any time of the year…even during the brutal heat of summer! And, let me tell you, we’re experiencing one of the hottest June’s on record already here in the sports betting capital of the world. At least it prepared us for July and August!
A few sportsbooks have already posted many “Game of the Year” college football matchups for live betting. Depending on the store, you can bet as many as 100 games right now (at lower limits than you’ll see during the regular season). You don’t have to wait for big conference games like Ohio State/Michigan, Alabama/Auburn, USC/Stanford, or Clemson/Florida State. Bring your wallets and place your bets! The best interconference games are up too…like Ohio State/Oklahoma and Alabama/Florida State.
If you don’t live in Nevada, you should schedule a trip to bet these soft lines (bring your sunscreen!). At the very least, you should be doing your summer preparation work now for your Fall betting. Don’t make the mistake of waiting until the last second and then going with your gut. WAYNE ALLYN ROOT is THE KING OF LAS VEGAS and the only man in the sports betting industry with a star on the “Walk of Fame” because I outwork everybody on both sides of the counter.
I’ve always felt my biggest edge was that I don’t prepare like everyone else does. Yes, you have to know returning starters, and you have to have good Power Ratings. But, I’m always looking for disrespected teams that are capable of scoring upsets out of the gate and all season long. With that in mind, YOU should be looking for:
*Teams who are likely to enter 2017 with a chip on their shoulder. Maybe they lost a few heartbreakers late last season. Maybe there was a coaching change that will ignite a new program that’s been struggling too long (I’m looking at you Texas!). Maybe it’s a team of juniors and seniors ready to arrive after being bullied for a long time (usually at least one of these in each conference every year). While everyone else is looking at returning talent and key stats, YOU need to look at motivation. This will be your biggest edge over the market because the market does a horrible job of recognizing its importance at the beginning of a new season.
*On the other end of the spectrum, teams who are likely to enter 2017 fat and happy because things went so well for them last year. Clemson’s certainly in danger of that after scoring their “revenge” National Championship last season. I’ve always noticed that certain head coaches get complacent right after a good year. They lose the fire they need to get peak performances from their players. Many of your best upset calls will come from fading the right teams in the right spots. Make a list of overconfident teams worth fading.
*In the mid-majors, talented, experienced, versatile teams who have a road game scheduled against a Power 5 school. We see upsets in this scenario every season. Go find them now! I’m not going to tip my hand too much. But, I have my eye on multiple teams from the Mid American and Mountain West conferences. Remember that you want teams who can SCORE POINTS when you’re making upset calls. Just bet “defensive dogs” plus the points. For upset payoffs on the moneyline, you have to outscore your opponents.
*Finally, run through each team’s schedule (easy to find in those summer newsstand preview publications) and put plusses by every game they should be fired up for, and minuses by every game the players could care less about. If you know college football, this won’t take you very long. After that, look for sandwich spots where you should fade disinterested teams, or “double-whammy” spots where a dog with a (+) by their name is facing a favorite with a (-) by theirs.
This weekend is a great time to get this work started. Have you purchased those preview publications yet? Why not? If you want to win this September, the work you do in June, July, and August is what’s going to make that happen.
Of course, while I’m doing my summer football preparation, I’m also building bankroll for my clients and I in Major League baseball. You can purchase my daily baseball BEST BETS right here at the website with your credit card. If you have any questions about which of my services best suits your individual needs, please talk to one of my representatives in the Vegas-Sports-Masters office at 1-888-777-4155. Ask about early rates for football when you call. Advantage bettors know you get the most bang for your buck by taking advantage of bargains.
Las Vegas is already buzzing about college football…which is your warning signal that it’s time to get to work. Let’s make some money in the bases as we great up for another great Autumn. It’s time for you to go to W.A.R. alongside WAYNE ALLYN ROOT!
