Five Players To Watch When Betting On Run To Win Super Bowl LIV

by WagerHome Blog on December 31, 2019

The NFL playoffs begin this weekend, so we’re going to look at the five players who can make a difference this postseason. If you are currently running your own bookmaking business, it is not too late to capitalize on the increase in sports betting that happens this time of year. The best way to maximize your profits and capture the thrill of customers betting on the NFL postseason is with pay per head software.

You can try it out at for four weeks free before making any commitments.

And speaking of the next four weeks, these are the five players that will have the greatest impact on which team will ultimately wins the Super Bowl.

Lamar Jackson, Baltimore

Lamar Jackson is the presumed NFL MVP for 2019, and what a season it’s been. Jackson is a weapon unlike any other in the league, and if he can’t be slowed down, it will be awfully hard for anyone other than the Ravens to win the Lombardi Trophy in Miami on Feb. 2.

Jackson did lose to the Chiefs this year, and last year too. But if they are to meet in the playoffs this year, it will be in Baltimore, and that could make all the difference.

George Kittle, San Francisco

The NFC Championship runs through San Francisco, and the 49ers’ offense runs through tight end George Kittle. In the storied history of the 49ers, only one tight end has ever topped 1,000 yards, and it’s Kittle. And he has done it now two years in a row.

Whichever team has to go on the road in the divisional round and face the 49ers must contain Kittle, or they will have no chance.

Aaron Jones, Green Bay

Aaron Rodgers will someday be in the Hall of Fame, but he may not be the most important Aaron on this year’s Packers team. Aaron Jones is a 1,000-yard rusher who also caught 49 passes for another 474 yards, and it’s not a coincidence that the only three Packers losses this year came in his three worst games.

Five players

When Jones is rolling, so are the Packers. And if he keeps it going in the playoffs, it might be Green Bay winning another title.

Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City

Last season’s MVP has the Chiefs heading into the playoffs on a six-game winning streak – the second-longest current win streak in the league (the Ravens have the longest).

Kansas City’s defense is improved from last season’s AFC Championship Game, but if the Chiefs are to win the Super Bowl this year, it will be on the back and arm of Mahomes.

Derrick Henry, Tennessee

It’s a passing league, and Derrick Henry is a running back. There are five teams with at least 12 wins on the season, and Henry plays for the nine-win Wild Card Titans. But he just won the rushing title, topped 200 yards in Tennessee’s Week 17 win that secured its playoff spot, and is averaging 149 yards over the last six weeks.

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill has been incredible down the stretch, but this team relies on Henry to keep pounding.

Week 17 Playoff Picture Games To Watch

by WagerHome Blog on December 28, 2019

There are no Saturday NFL games this week, and no one plays on Monday. With playoff implications on the line, the NFL has everyone playing on Sunday for Week 17 of the regular season, so that all teams go into their games on equal footing.

It’s the best time of year to bet on football, and it’s the best opportunity for you to see just how much your bookmaking business would benefit from pay per head software. From the tech used to the available bets to the speed of changing odds, you can see how it works at with a free four-week trial.

A full 11 of the 16 games on Sunday will decide NFL playoff berths and seeding, but it’s the following five games that we’re keeping our eyes on the most.

Tennessee Titans at Houston Texans

The Texans have already clinched the AFC South and are currently the fourth seed in the playoffs. It’s possible they could move up to third, but that would require a Chiefs loss to the Chargers in Kansas City.

For the Titans, it’s simple; win, and they are in the playoffs as the sixth seed. If it was to lose to the Texans, then Tennessee needs Pittsburgh and Indianapolis to lose, and then it would still get in.

Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens are locked in as the AFC’s top seed. So with home-field wrapped up, they will probably rest many of their starters. That could open the door for the Steelers, who would become the sixth seed if they win and the Titans lose.

There are also a few other less likely scenarios to get the Steelers in that involve multiple other results and a strength-of-victory tiebreaker.

San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks

The 49ers and Seahawks are both in the playoffs, but the difference between a first-round bye and having to go on the road as a Wild Card is a big one, which makes this game one of the most intriguing of the weekend.

Whichever team wins gets the division. If it’s the 49ers, they will also get a first-round bye. If the Seahawks win, they get the bye if the Packers lose this week. Scenarios also exist for either team to get home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs.

Philadelphia Eagles at New York Giants

The NFC East hasn’t exactly shown itself to be the class of the NFL this season. Only one playoff team will emerge from the division, and it’s now impossible for any team to win as many as 10 games.

That being said, the division championship is coming down to the final week, and the Eagles are in the driver’s seat. If they beat the New York Giants, they are champs of the NFC East and will be the NFC’s fourth seed.

Washington Redskins at Dallas Cowboys

If the Eagles falter against the Giants, then the Cowboys can win the division. They will need to beat the Redskins at home, and their division-winning scenario only comes to fruition if the Eagles lose.

Otherwise, a Cowboys win will be a nice way to end the season, but their season will end.

‘Tis The Season To Bet These Five College Football Bowl Games

by WagerHome Blog on December 24, 2019

As the Christmas carols say, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. The NFL is winding down, and the playoffs are gearing up. And if you love college football, we have non-stop bowl action nearly every day over the next two weeks.

It’s also the perfect time of year to try out pay per head software for your bookmaking business. offers four free weeks to try it before any commitments are required.

On to the games, and the five college bowl games we like as best bets.

Michigan State Spartans -3.5 vs. Wake Forest Demon Deacons

Wake Forest has a great offense when healthy. But with the bulk of the Demon Deacons’ wide receivers banged up, Michigan State should be able to slow them down.

The Spartans won their final two games of the season to become bowl-eligible, so they are the hot hand. They also come from the better conference that historically does well in the Pinstripe Bowl. The smart money is on Michigan State.

Penn State Nittany Lions -7 vs. Memphis Tigers

Another Big Ten team that is battle-tested because it hails from one of the most competitive conferences in the country. Memphis had a terrific season – in fact, the best season in school history – but its biggest wins were against SMU and Cincinnati, and it lost to Temple.

Penn State, on the other hand, played Ohio State tough and has too much defense for Memphis to handle. Penn State covers in the Cotton Bowl.

Virginia Tech Hokies -2.5 vs. Kentucky Wildcats

Defense is also the order of the day at the Belk Bowl, with both Virginia Tech and Kentucky boasting defenses in the top 20 nationally. Virginia Tech is 5-1 against the spread in its last six games, with the lone blemish coming against Virginia in the final game of the season.

On the other side, Kentucky is 6-1 ATS in its last seven games. But the Wildcats feature a predominantly run-first offense, and the Hokies will keep it contained. Look for Virginia Tech to cover.

Minnesota Golden Gophers +8.5 vs. Auburn Tigers

Auburn already won its most important game of the year by knocking off Alabama. Will it be able to get up for another big game a month later? We think that will be a tough ask, and especially against a very good Minnesota team.

The Gophers are 6-2 against the spread in the last eight games they’ve been the underdog, and we think that goes to 7-2 with a strong showing at the Outback Bowl.

Oregon Ducks +2.5 vs. Wisconsin Badgers

The Pac-12 champions in the Rose Bowl as underdogs? And this is a very good Pac-12 champion that wasn’t too far removed from making the College Football Playoff.

Wisconsin is also very good and ranks 10th in points allowed this season. But Oregon just put up points on a great defense in Utah, and the West Coast team will get things done in Pasadena. Take the Ducks and the points.

Tracking Your Pay Per Head Clients Is Simple Using WagerHome Software

by WagerHome Blog on December 21, 2019

The year is winding down, and you’re looking for a new way to inject life into your bookmaking business that will make this coming year the best yet. If that sounds like you, and you haven’t yet given pay per head a try, what’s stopping you?

At, you get four full weeks to test drive the software and see if it’s right for you, your business, and your clients, before ever making a financial commitment.

What Is Pay Per Head?

With pay per head software at your disposal, you will get a top-of-the-line website to run your business through. The software will provide live and fully updated date odds and point spreads and offer your customers access to sports from around the world.

The software also comes with total customer service that will handle any problems your clients might have, as well as the safety and security to handle the high-dollar transactions that led you to the business in the first place. And all of this is yours for a small per player weekly fee of $9 to $12, depending on which package you choose.

Tracking Your Clients

Since PPH software will take care of the hard work that goes into financial transactions, bet placing, and odds tracking, you are left to do the most important thing to grow your business: Customer outreach. Obviously, this is most critical in growing your client base. If you don’t have clients making bets, you have no business.

customer service

But you also need to meet those clients’ needs, and that is where the PPH software at is also extremely valuable. With the software, you can track the bets they are making, the frequency, sport, and amount, and that allows you to understand better how they use the service.

And the more you understand your clients, the better you can serve their needs. The easier it is for you to tailor the experience for them and to them.

Provided Client Controls

With the software, you can control almost everything about how your clients use your bookmaking service. You sign them up, give them access to your provided website, and decide if they can use WagerHome’s casino and racebook along with the sportsbook.

You can determine if they must operate on a credit or cash account, what their credit limit is, as well as the cap on their wager amount. You can even dole out temporary credit if the situation calls for it.

And along with those controls for each individual client, you also get detailed reports for all of your clients. Since you are paying a per head fee, this protects you against overpaying for someone who isn’t using the service.

It also allows you to understand when the majority of your bets come in for the week and what leagues — NHL, NFL, NBA or whatever — they’re coming on so that you can adjust your offerings accordingly.

Three Keys To Remember When Betting The NFL Playoffs

by WagerHome Blog on December 17, 2019

Just as teams have to step up their games to be successful in the NFL playoffs, so do sports bettors. The competition is better, the lines are tighter, and the stakes are greater.

If you are a bookmaker, it only makes sense that you would rely on a pay per head site to handle the administrative side of your business during this most important time of the betting year. offers you four free weeks to try out its product and see if it’s right for you.

It also makes sense that you remember these three keys when placing your NFL playoff bets.

What Have You Done For Me Lately?

Everyone is talented in the playoffs. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be there. But not everyone is playing their best football at the time the playoffs kick off.

Smart gamblers know to focus on the teams that come into the postseason on a hot streak and give less credence to the team with an overall better resume but struggled a bit in December.

It is the proverbial “backed into the playoffs” scenario. And quite often, a team that backs into the playoffs with mediocre play is quick to back itself out.

Case in point: the 2018 Houston Texans. They lost two of their final four regular-season games last season but remained the No. 3 seed, hosting the sixth-seeded Indianapolis Colts, who won all four of their final games to make the playoffs. The Colts then promptly knocked off the Texans in the playoffs 21-7.

The hot team advanced; the cold team began its offseason.

The More Ways A Team Can Win In Playoffs, The Better

As we just said, everyone is good, and everyone has video on each other by the time the calendar hits January. So the smarter plays are on teams that play multi-dimensional football. The more ways a team can beat you, the harder it is to shut them down.

A gaudy passing offense that struggles to run the ball is much more likely to be shut down against a good defensive coordinator and playoff-worthy defense. Add in questionable weather, and a team that scores 30 points a game in October may suddenly have a hard time hitting 20.

Put your money on the most well-rounded playoff teams.

Injuries and Practice Time

Don’t get too caught up in who isn’t practicing during the week. It does not necessarily mean that they will miss the game.

In the playoffs, everyone wants to play and has extra motivation to take the field. An injury that will keep a guy out in November may not do the same in January, so don’t make assumptions based on mid-week injury reports.

That doesn’t, however, mean you shouldn’t study injuries in-depth. How long has the injury nagged him? How did he perform this season playing hurt? How good is the backup? How might him playing change the game plan?

All of these are important questions to ask and attempt to answer before you place any NFL playoff wagers.

Top NFL Favorites To Bet In Week 15

by WagerHome Blog on December 14, 2019

Only three weeks remain in the NFL’s regular season, so there are only three weeks left to pick some favorites and play the full slate of games to get the best wagering experience offered anywhere in sports. But you don’t just have to be on the betting side of things to love a full day of NFL action.

If you are a bookmaker and are running your operations through a pay per head bookmaking site, you also know just how exciting the action is on the other side of the betting slip.

And if you haven’t yet signed up for a PPH site, you can try for four weeks commitment-free, and find out just how profitable your bookmaking services can become.

Speaking of profitable, let’s get to our list of the top favorites to bet this NFL weekend.

Philadelphia Eagles (-4.5) at Washington Redskins

Philadelphia has not been impressive this season, and its wide receiving group looks more like a MASH unit. But you can play that to your advantage.

The Eagles opened as six-point favorites, but enough money has gone to the Redskins to move that line down to 4.5. This is now a good bet for Philadelphia. It still has a division title within its reach, while Washington is playing out the string.

Go with the Eagles to cover a line that might even get smaller by kickoff.

New England Patriots (-9.5) at Cincinnati Bengals

The Patriots are still playing for the No. 1 seed in the AFC, while the Bengals are playing for the No. 1 draft pick. On a normal week, this line might be closer to 14, but with New England coming off two losses and the distraction of Spygate 2.0, the line sits at just 9.5.

The talent may be waning, but no team is as professional as the Patriots. They put aside all the noise and get back on track with a big win over the Bengals.

Atlanta Falcons at San Francisco 49ers (-11)

The 49ers are another team looking at a possible No. 1 seed in the playoffs. So not only are they playing like the best team in the NFC, they have all the motivation to keep playing at a high level.

San Francisco has covered the spread three straight weeks, while Atlanta has failed to cover in two of the last three weeks. It’s a long road trip for a Falcons team finishing up a disappointing season. The Niners win this game by a couple of touchdowns.

Indianapolis Colts at New Orleans Saints (-9)

Against the spread over the last six weeks, the Saints have gone win, loss, win, loss, win, loss. Well, if that pattern is to continue, they’re due for a win.

But a much better reason to take the Saints this week is that they are at home in primetime, they’re jockeying for a playoff bye, and the Colts have lost three games in a row and have only slim playoff hopes remaining.

Drew Brees has a big game, and the Saints cover the spread.

Choosing The Best Pay Per Head Software To Run Your Local Business

by WagerHome Blog on December 12, 2019

You’ve finally come around. You now realize that in order to maximize the success of your local bookmaking business, the only option is to sign on with a pay per head service.

You’ve got the clients, but they have demands for technology and customer support, and they want all the options that a big sportsbook can give them.

Pay per head is definitely your solution, but with so many out there, how do you choose the right one?


First and foremost, never pick a pay per head company that also takes a percentage of your winnings. That is your profit, and it should remain untouched. You will find good and reputable sites that only take a per person fee, and that’s who you should sign with.

Although less isn’t always best. If you come across a site offering as little as $3 a head, buyer beware. You get what you pay for.

They are likely to offer limited services, or simply not be long for the world. Anything between $10 and $15 is reasonable.

Free Trial

Fully formed sites with history and top-of-the-line services will also give you an opportunity to try their software for no commitment., as an example, gives its new bookmaking partners four free weeks to try it out before it ever takes a dime.

That allows you to see exactly what your customers are getting, and what exactly you will be getting in a partner. There is no reason to ever sign up with a company that doesn’t also offer you a free trial.

What Sports Are Offered

This may seem like an obvious one, but it’s important enough to mention here. Make sure that the sports offered by the pay per head site are in line with the sports your clients want. So communicate with your clients. Let them know that you are upgrading your operations and be direct in asking them what they would most like to play. Maybe it’s the NFL, the NBA, even soccer from overseas. You never know until you ask.

Then make sure that not only does the PPH site offer those sports, but that it offers a complete range of options within that sport. In-play wagering, multiple leagues, and a full range of parlays and propositions should all be available for your clients.

Financial Security

Make sure the PPH sites you’re researching use the latest encryption software to keep their records, and the records of your clients, secure. Along with making sure that they offer a complete list of possible deposit and withdrawal options, you have to make sure they are able to protect all the information they acquire.

And it’s important to note that they will not need the personal details of your clients. If they ask for those, that PPH site isn’t for you.

Customer Service

Lastly, one of the chief reasons you’re signing with a PPH site is so that you don’t get calls at all hours from your clients. Your partner pay per head service should offer 24-hour customer service to handle any technical issues with its software, placed wagers, etc. There is no reason to settle for anything less.

Wagering NCAA Basketball During The Peak Of The Season With Pay Per Head

by WagerHome Blog on December 10, 2019

We’ve gotten past the early weeks of the 2019-20 college basketball season, where teams are still figuring out what they have with their new players, how their team is going to gel, and where they stand among the competition. That means the real season can now begin, and the real wagering can commence.

Conference Play

There is a small smattering of conference games that tip off in November and December, but the real action gets going in early January. If you are running your own bookmaking site through a pay per head service, then you know that this is when the action really picks up.

In the first week of January alone, we get top-25 showdowns between Ohio State and Maryland, Pittsburgh and North Carolina, Arizona and Oregon, Alabama and Kentucky, Baylor and Kansas, Louisville and Notre Dame, and Wake Forest and Duke.

If you haven’t yet signed up for pay per head site to handle the administrative side of your bookmaking service, be sure to do so prior to January. gives you four free weeks to test it out, which will take you right up to the start of full conference play.

Conference Tournaments

They may not quite have the same panache as the NCAA Tournament, but if you are a savvy bettor, then you know that conference tournaments can make for some of the best betting of the entire season. The teams all know each other, and an automatic bid to the NCAAs raises the stakes. And some teams can play as many as five games in five days, going back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to back.

And with so many games all going on at once, and so many lines for the books to keep track of, real bargains and values can be found. With 32 conferences crowning a champion over the course of eight days, the March Madness really begins before the committee has announced a single seeding.

NCAA Tournament

It’s not just the biggest event of the college basketball year, and thus its biggest wagering event, it’s one of the biggest events on the entire sports calendar, only sharing the top of the sports gambling mountain with the Super Bowl. But that’s just one day. The NCAA Tournament goes on for a full three weeks.

Anyone who bets the NCAA Tournament knows that it requires a complete change in strategy. Overall strength of a team is less important than how they’ve been playing down the stretch. Teams with big-time scorers may get the hype, but the teams built for a deep tournament run play great defense.

There are no more homecourts, but location, travel, and traveling fans are all very important. And since a lot of people just start betting at tournament time, public money may not be informed money.

All of these are important things to know and factor in when placing wagers on the NCAA Tournament, or running your own PPH site that is expecting an uptick in action come March.
