Three Favorites To Bet For NCAA Conference Championship Weekend

by WagerHome Blog on December 7, 2019

After this weekend we will know which four college football teams still have a shot at the national championship, and which teams have had their dreams end. It is one of the best weekends on the NCAA football calendar, and if you currently run your bookmaking operation with a pay per head site, then you are expecting a big weekend of action. And if you haven’t yet signed up for a PPH site, WagerHome.com gives you four free weeks to try it out.

As for this weekend’s games, these are the top three favorites expected to win their conference championships and cover the point spreads.

LSU Tigers (-7) vs. Georgia Bulldogs

It wasn’t that long ago that LSU was sitting in the No. 1 spot in the College Football Playoff rankings. But even though it didn’t falter, it dropped to No. 2. If the Tigers can impress enough against a top team like Georgia, they just might be able to climb back up to No. 1.

I expect the Tigers to have the motivation and incentive to come out strong, put the hammer down on offense, and never let up.

Georgia does have one of the best defenses in the country, but scoring points for them has been a little bit tougher to accomplish. The Bulldogs have plenty of motivation for this game, too, knowing that a win will get them into the Playoff. But LSU is the superior team and having the better season. It will win the SEC Championship and cover the spread.

Ohio State Buckeyes (-16.5) vs. Wisconsin Badgers

Ohio State got to the No. 1 position in the College Football Playoff because it is simply annihilating opponents. Consider that when they fell behind 6-0 last week to Michigan, it was the Buckeyes’ largest deficit of the season. They, of course, went on to beat Michigan by 29 points, the 11th time in 12 games they’ve won by at least 24 points.

They have nine wins now against the spread, and with all the incentive in the world to stay No. 1 in the playoff rankings, there will be no let-up against Wisconsin. The Badgers are good, and they earned their way into the Big Ten Championship Game. But don’t forget that they’ve already lost to Ohio State this year, 38-7.

Take the Buckeyes to win big.

Oklahoma Sooners (-9) vs. Baylor Bears

It was just three weeks ago that Oklahoma and Baylor played one of the best games of the year. Baylor jumped out to a huge 28-3 lead, only to watch Jalen Hurts lead a furious second-half comeback and take the win.

Baylor got its lead because of turnovers by the Sooners, and that is something that I expect to be cleaned up for the rematch. Also, there won’t be any looking past the Bears this go-round. An impressive win by Oklahoma keeps it in contention for a playoff berth, and that alone will keep this team motivated for the full 60 minutes.

Oklahoma will win another Big 12 Championship and cover the spread.

Three Steps To Dominate In California With Your Pay Per Head Site

by WagerHome Blog on December 5, 2019

Think about these numbers. A customer who averages $100 bets per game will lose more than $3,000 in any given year. So imagine how much you can profit as a bookmaker if you have as few as 100 customers.

You live in California; you want to live the California life. So instead of working harder, work smarter. And a smart, independent bookmaker knows that in 2019, profit can best be found in opening your own pay per head site and following these three steps.

Research the Business

There are a lot of pay per head services out there ready to give you your own site. In order to pick the right one for you, look around. Good sites like WagerHome.com will give you four free weeks to test drive their platform, customer service, bet offerings, and see how they manage changing odds.

Become the customer and think about all the things they will want in a betting site. Then think about everything that might go wrong and how each site will handle those potential problems.

Then read blogs and learn as much as you can about the business and the direction it’s going. That way, when you do settle on a site, you’re already ahead of the curve.

Get Your First Clients

One of the beautiful things about employing a PPH site to handle your sports wagering operations is that it frees you up to build your client base.

To get started, reach out to people you know. Friends and family, co-workers and classmates, friends of friends, etc. Having that personal connection makes it more natural and risk-free to extend a line of credit or offer free introductory bets.

But, and this is important, a PPH site charges you per head regardless of how much they wager. So if they’re only going to place one $10 bet per week, they are going to cost you money. So be smart when choosing your clients as well. This is your business, and you want it profitable.

Build Your Business

Once you are up and running, it will become much easier for you to add more clients. Word of mouth is still the best and most effective way to draw in new players. Ask your best customers to tell their friends and colleagues about your services. Use social media to spread the word. Offer them introductory free bets.

And since you live in California, go to the many racetracks, golf courses, cycling events, beach volleyball matches, surf competitions, and everywhere else that sports fans gather and strike up conversations.

Let people know what you do, how they can become involved, and then again, offer them a free bet to get started.

Also, look for new customers at the end of sports seasons. Some bookies only do football or baseball, etc. So when the football season ends or at the close of the Final Four, there are good customers that have suddenly become free agents.

Find them, offer them new season specials, and make them permanent clients.

Five Favorites To Bet In Week 14 Of The NFL Season

by WagerHome Blog on December 3, 2019

With just four weeks remaining in the regular season, the NFL has hit its final stretch, and sports bettors have a final month on the calendar to find the best value and place those last bets. And if you haven’t yet signed up for your own pay per head bookmaking site and brought your business into the future, you may be missing out on those final NFL bets.

Check out WagerHome.com and its four free weeks of service to maximize your end-of-season profits.

As for the games, these are the top five favorites to bet this week.

Carolina Panthers at Atlanta Falcons (-1)

The Carolina Panthers are in freefall and are now just playing out the string as losers of four straight games. Most recently, they lost to the Redskins after going into the game as 10-point favorites.

The Falcons have also struggled against the spread this year, but they just played a tight game against the Saints on Thanksgiving and have an extra three days to get ready for this one. The smart money is on the Falcons to prevail.

Washington Redskins at Green Bay Packers (-13.5)

The Redskins have shown a little life recently against some really bad teams. That has people thinking they are better than they actually are, and we’ll see that in spades when they travel to Green Bay to face a playoff-bound Packers team.

The Packers are 8-4 against the spread, one of the highest rates of any NFL team, and showed last week just how good they are in bad weather.

The weather will be bad again this Sunday, and that translates to a big Packers win.

Tennessee Titans (-2.5) at Oakland Raiders

Apart from a garbage score in the closing minutes last week, the Raiders have gone 10 quarters without scoring a meaningful touchdown. They’ve also lost two straight games by more than 30 points, so banking on a three-point loss to a Titans team that is squarely in the playoff hunt is a good bet.

Simply put, the Titans are the better team, the hotter team, and the team with the most to play for. Take the Titans and give the points.

San Francisco 49ers at New Orleans Saints (-2.5)

The Saints and Drew Brees are scoring points, and as good as the 49ers have been playing, points for them are harder to come by. This will be a great game between a pair of Super Bowl contenders, and possibly an NFC Championship preview, but for this one, we’re going with the home team.

New Orleans is 8-4 ATS this season, and it will make it 9-4 on Sunday.

Denver Broncos at Houston Texans (-7)

Fresh off their win over New England, the Texans are primed to make a run through December. The AFC South leaders struggle a bit on defense, but Deshaun Watson has played great, and the Broncos defense is banged up.

Denver is also starting rookie Drew Lock at quarterback, and that adds up to a big loss on the road. Take the Texans and give the points.
