Bodog Betting Odds
by Peter Portero (4/15/06)
Bodog is one of my favorite online sportsbooks because it is one of the Internet's most popular betting sites. You may wonder why I choose to go with the public as it pertains to where I gamble but the reason is simple. The betting odds available at Bodog can be some of the best online.
I cannot proclaim Bodog odds to be the best all the time and for every game because it simply is not true.
But since the most frequented online sports betting site is Bodog, they shade the lines against the Public. What's perfect is that the majority of gamblers at Bodog are novices and do not shop for the best lines. With a maximum wager amount in tact, Bodog can shade the line against the majority novice gamblers they serve. This gives expert handicappers like us better betting odds.
And better odds means more money in our pocket. I was looking at the games on the board today and noticed that the Cincinnati Reds moneyline was at +152 while at other sportsbooks like Mybookie, it was +143. Wow. The majority of betting handle is all over the Cardinals because the Reds got an improbable 1-0 win yesterday. But in the end, you are getting a free 9 points by betting on the underdog at Bodog. Unfortunately, you are losing 9 points by betting the favorite at Bodog.
So you must make sure to stick to betting against the public when you use Bodog to place your bets. If you can do this, you will be making so much extra money every day with minimal effort.
