Most sports bettors understand the basics on how to bet on sides and totals before the game starts. But if you are a sports bettor looking to maximize his or her profits needs to have the ability and flexibility to successfully navigate through the course of the entire game. This means that halftime sports betting is a key element of the successful sports bettors. This includes both games that were bet on from the beginning as well as games that were not bet on before the game started. lets us offer a brief examples on how the halftime bet can be used, how it can be extremely profitable, and what things to look for when making a halftime bet.
Betting on games at halftime. After the first half has been played, the sportsbooks offer a line based entirely on action that occurs in the 2nd half. Numerous examples will follow, but the reader should be able to understand the concept that halftime lines are not for the entire game, only the action that occurs after halftime will count for their wager.
For and examle, suppose the line for a game between the Dallas Mavericks and the San Antonio Spurs is Spurs -8. Then suppose that the Mavs lead by 6 at the half, and the halftime line is Spurs -7. What this halftime line really means is that the Spurs are now laying only 1 for the game, instead of the 8 that they were laying before tip-off. This number is called " The Adjusted Halftime Line" as you look at the numbers to compare the halftime numbers with the original numbers.
The single most useful function of halftime betting is the ability to hedge your initial bet with the possibility of winning both wagers.
For those unfamiliar with the concepts involved, let's do some brief definition work here. To 'hedge' a bet means to take a position contrary to your initial wager in order to limit your risk and potentially maximize your profit. The function of this is to lock in some profit when the outcome of the game is still a question mark, or, if you don't like the direction that the game is headed, you can 'lay off' some or all of your bet while the game is already in progress. This increases 'Middling' opportunities, to win with bets on both sides in the same game, with no risk involved whatsoever, a bookies nightmare. A middling opportunity minimizes risk while maximizing potential profit, what every bettor dreams of.
The public prefers to bet the second half rather than the first half, In certain cases where sportsbooks know that the public is going to go after a certain second half side, the number will most likely be shaded towards the favorite.
In situations where many games are entering halftime concurrently, the books have only a couple of minutes to chose their position on a multitude of games. If they make the wrong choice on even one line, it can cost them big time.
The smart bettor should be able to avoid the pitfalls with experience. For beginning halftime bettors, I would strongly recommend that you keep your wager size below that of your normal standard wager. There is a steep learning curve, and not much time to make decisions. Once you have become more proficient and you begin to win at halftime betting on a regular basis, you can increase the size of your bets.
