Tiger, Phil Welcome Brady, Manning To Course For Betting Extravaganza

by WagerHome Blog on May 21, 2020

The Match II – or The Match: Champions for Charity, as it’s officially called – is the ultimate in made-for-TV golfing events. It’s also going to be the ultimate in betting events, as there is a line on almost any possible scenario.

In Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, there are 20 major championships between them, with the bulk going to Tiger. In Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, there are eight Super Bowl rings, with the bulk of those going to Brady.

Match Winner

In 2018 when Phil and Tiger met in the first of these mano-a-mano events, it was Phil winning in 22 holes. But that was before Tiger returned to the top with his 2019 Masters win.

With that in our recent collective memories, it’s the team of Tiger and Peyton that is the clear match favorite.

  • Tiger Woods/Peyton Manning -225
  • Phil Mickelson/Tom Brady +185

Tiger is clearly the hotter golfer right now, and Manning is the quarterback currently in retirement and with more time to dedicate to golf. So these seem like appropriate odds.

Hole-By-Hole Props

And if you, like the rest of us, have been craving sports betting action of any kind, there is absolutely zero chance that a single bet on which pair wins is going to satisfy your need. That’s why it’s so great that we can all place wagers on any single hole.

Hole 1 through 18, Tie is the favorite for each hole. But someone has to win, and if you can predict who that someone is, there is money to be made.

Other Bets

Some of the other bets we’re looking at include:

First to Go 1 Up

  • Woods/Manning -150
  • Mickelson/Brady +120

Lead After 3 Holes

  • Woods/Manning +135
  • Mickelson/Brady +210

Lead After 9 Holes

  • Woods/Manning -105
  • Mickelson/Brady +140

Closest to Pin (8th)

  • Manning -180 vs. Brady +120
  • Woods -135 vs. Mickelson -115

Closest to Pin (12th)

  • Manning -180 vs. Brady +120
  • Woods -135 vs. Mickelson -115

tiger

You can also bet on the many different holes which the match might end:

  • Match Finish on 18th or Later +130
  • Match Finish on 17th +300
  • Match Finish on 16th +340
  • Match Finish on 15th +550
  • Match Finish on 14th +900

One of the favorite prop bets that you can wager: Will Tom Brady wear at least one Super Bowl ring during the match? No is the favorite at -1000. If Brady does wear one, the payoff is +600.

NASCAR Continues Its Busy Schedule with More Betting Action

by WagerHome Blog on May 19, 2020

Week 1 of the return of NASCAR finished almost exactly as the pre-race betting odds predicted. On Sunday, it was Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch who went off as the two race favorites, and it was Harvick finishing in first place while the other Busch, older brother Kurt, crossed the finish line in third.

As expected, with no practice and no qualifying, it was the most experienced teams that came out of top. And also as expected, everyone was thrilled to be back on the racetrack.

It was Harvick’s 50th career Cup win, and he said that while it was a great honor to win the race, it was a little strange taking the checkered flag to the silence of a fan-free grandstand.

Up Next: Coca-Cola 600

The two-month interruption to the season has not wiped away one of the marquee races of the year. This coming Sunday, on its originally scheduled day, the Coca-Cola 600 will be run. And for this race, because of its importance in the standings, there will be qualifying runs to determine the starting order.

Not surprisingly, the top names you would expect to see are jockeying for position at the head of the odds board.

  • Kyle Busch +400
  • Martin Truex, Jr. +600
  • Joey Logano +700
  • Kevin Harvick +700
  • Chase Elliott +1000
  • Denny Hamlin +1100
  • Alex Bowman +1200

Martin Truex was the champion of this event in 2019, his second victory in the Coca-Cola 600. Joey Logano finished second in 2019 in NASCAR’s longest race of the year.

Alex Bowman is an interesting bet here at +1200. At Darlington on Sunday, he finished in second place behind Harvick, and the 27-year-old does have a pair of top 10 finishes at Charlotte.

Three Races in Seven Days – Twice

In an effort to run just as many races as originally scheduled, after the Coca-Cola 600 is run on May 24, there will be another Cup Series race at Charlotte on May 27, before everyone moves to Bristol for the Food City 500 on May 31.

Then the action moves to Atlanta on June 7. The Cup Series races at Martinsville on June 10 and again in Miami on June 14. Including the race that was just held at Darlington, that’s a total of seven NASCAR events in only 28 days.

The Pay Per Head Rush Is Here

Sports betting hasn’t just returned – it’s returned at 200 miles per hour around the most important tracks in NASCAR. And if you are a bookmaker that’s been barely hanging on these last two months, don’t be left behind. You need a pay per head software provider like WagerHome.com to help you strike while the NASCAR racing is hot.

WagerHome.com will manage all of your business’ administrative side, while you can focus on making sure that your clients know that sports betting is back in all its racing glory. For just a small fee per client can get the pay per head bookmaking advantage that your competition only dreams about.

NASCAR, UFC Taking Center Stage Again In The Sports World

by WagerHome Blog on May 14, 2020

If you have ever considered moving your bookmaking operations to a pay per head software provider, now is the perfect time, with sports like UFC and NASCAR making some noise. The action is quiet, and your competition is lying dormant, waiting for things to happen.

You, on the other hand, can use pay per head software to make things happen and make the most of the opportunities for sports wagering that do still exist.

The UFC is fighting again, and NASCAR is set to race, and with WagerHome.com as a pay per head partner, there is money to be made.

UFC

After a very successful UFC 249 last week and a full card of fights on May 13, the MMA giant looks ahead to future events, with bouts currently on the schedule for May 16, May 23, and June 6. That June event – UFC 250 – features the rescheduled title fight between Amanda Nunes and Felicia Spencer.

Nunes currently holds both the featherweight and bantamweight titles and is hoping to become the first fighter to ever defend her belt in two weight classes at the same time.

Nunes is the heavy favorite at -500 and enters the match with 10 straight wins. Alex Perez and Jussier Formiga have also been confirmed for a fight that night.

The main event on the fight card for May 16 is the heavyweight tilt between Alistair Overeem and Walt Harris. Harris is the favorite at -155, while a bet on Overeem pays +130.

NASCAR

Racing returns to NASCAR on May 17, as 40 cars will take to the track at Darlington sans cheering spectators. The favorites are as expected, with both Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick at +550. Denny Hamlin is third at +650.

Other storylines to follow and interesting bets to make include Matt Kenseth making his first start since 2018. A bet on Kenseth pays +2800.

ufc nascar

Ryan Newman will be making his first start since a terrifying crash at Daytona left him hospitalized with a bruised brain. Newman is on the board at +10000.

With no practice before the race and no qualifying, the start order will be determined by current owner points. That means the top four starters will be Harvick, Joey Logano, Chase Elliott, and Alex Bowman.

When the Coca-Cola 600 runs on May 24 in Charlotte, they will have qualifying runs to determine the start positions earlier that day.

Pay Per Head Software

Along with the UFC and NASCAR, golf will be teeing off soon, and Major League Baseball owners and the player’s union are working on a plan to return by July. So before sports gets geared back up, you need to get your bookmaking operations prepared to handle the rush of action.

WagerHome.com gives you four free weeks to test-drive its pay per head software. Get a customizable website, customer support, and full client reports, allowing you to tailor your operations directly to your client’s needs, and all for a small monthly fee per customer.

Betting NFL Win Totals After Schedule Release

by WagerHome Blog on May 12, 2020

Apart from draft day, there is no better window into how the NFL season might play out than when the league releases the upcoming schedule and win totals odds are released. Bye weeks, short weeks, early games in the East, and total mileage traveled for the season all play a role in how each week will unfold. And it all matters when you look at placing futures bets on NFL season win totals.

Here is a look at three of the more intriguing teams to watch this season.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Over/Under 10 Wins)

It’s hard to say that Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski will add three wins to Tampa Bay’s 2019 total of seven, but a favorable schedule might. The Buccaneers will play the Chiefs, Vikings, Packers, and their two division games against the Saints. But the Kansas City game is at home in late November, and then they get a bye before hosting the Vikings in mid-December.

With a lot of new parts to this offense, being able to put off those two big games until the end of the season is big. Meanwhile, in September they start tough, at New Orleans. But then they get the Panthers, Broncos, Chargers, and Bears – which could all very easily be wins.

Indianapolis Colts (Over/Under 8.5 Wins)

Indianapolis has another new quarterback in Philip Rivers, which will make the Colts better. But what really makes this an intriguing bet is that, based on projected win totals for the 2020 season, it is the Colts with the easiest schedule in the NFL.

Inside their division, everyone is anticipated to take a step back. Jacksonville is in total rebuild mode, the Texans have had a brutal offseason, and the Titans are not expected to repeat last year’s trip to the AFC Championship Game.

And in the first seven weeks of the season, Indy gets the Jags, Jets, Bears, Browns, Bengals, and Lions. It would not be surprising at all if they start the year 6-1 (with the lone tough matchup against Minnesota in Week 2).

New England Patriots (Over/Under 9 Wins)

Maybe it’s a fool’s errand to bet against Bill Belichick. But not only do the Patriots have a young quarterback whose growth might suffer from an unorthodox offseason and training camp, they play a brutal schedule in 2020.

win totals

Week 1 vs. Miami – not easy. Week 2 at Seattle – brutal. Week 4 at Kansas City – brutal. Week 7 vs. San Francisco – brutal. Week 10 vs. Baltimore – brutal. And then not once, but twice, do the Patriots play games 3,000 miles from home in Los Angeles. And with just four days between the two.

Add in two games against Buffalo and a trip to Houston, and it’s very easy to see how this team could fall short of nine wins.

Pay Per Head Software

The UFC is back. NASCAR is set to begin. Golf is coming. And excitement abounds about the NFL. If you are a bookmaker or thinking about becoming a bookmaker, now is the time to partner with a top-shelf pay per head software provider.

WagerHome.com will handle the nuts and bolts of your operation, you manage the clients, and when a full schedule of sporting events returns, you will have a leg up on your competition.

Betting NASCAR And Finding Ways To Profit

by WagerHome Blog on May 7, 2020

April was a live sports and sports betting wasteland, but May is shaping up to be a rebound. Korean baseball has begun; now that the NFL Draft is complete, futures bets in football are shaping up; and NASCAR is set to resume its season on May 17 at Darlington Raceway in South Carolina.

In fact, NASCAR has made a commitment to run the originally scheduled 36 races of the Cup Series and is going to be doubling up on races through May to make that happen.

There will be 400 miles raced on May 17, 310 miles on May 20 (also at Darlington), and then they will go to Charlotte for 600 miles on May 24 (the original date of the Coca-Cola 600) and 300 miles on May 27.

All of these races will be single-day events, meaning no practice sessions. And only the Coca-Cola 600 will feature qualifying. There will be no crowds in attendance, and pit stops will be conducted in a way that prevents large groups of people together in the garage.

Betting Implications

What this means for you, the independent bookmaker, is that, just as with the NFL Draft, fans desperate for sports wagering action are going to bet these races. They may very well bet the two races scheduled for the Xfinity Series and the race on May 26 in the Gander Truck Series.

So if you are one of those bookmakers who needs this action to get your sports season back on track, this is the perfect time to team up with a pay per head software provider like WagerHome.com.

Get a customizable website, a full slate of betting options that include NASCAR’s revised schedule, and a leg up on your competition by turning a quiet April into a busy and exciting May.

The Driver Effect on Odds

For now, NASCAR is only going to race within driving distance of Charlotte, where the majority of teams reside. So when it comes to drivers and teams that do best at the races in South Carolina and North Carolina, they have a decided advantage.

nascar

Also, because of the restrictions on practice and qualifying, it will be the experienced teams that are going to thrive. No surprise that for the race on May 17, both Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick are the favorites to win at +500.

Harvick is the current standings leader with a pair of top five finishes in the four races that were run prior to the COVID-19 shutdown.

Postseason Schedule and Betting

Another thing that NASCAR officials made clear is that they are hoping to keep the entire 10-race postseason schedule, beginning with the Southern 500 on Labor Day Weekend – also to be run at Darlington.

The postseason ends on Nov. 8 in Phoenix, and not surprisingly, right now, the odds-on favorite to finish at the top of the standings is Harvick at +450. Harvick has won nine previous races at Phoenix, which is the most ever.

PGA Tour To Begin Soon, Giving Golf Betting Options

by WagerHome Blog on May 5, 2020

If as a bookie, you are lucky enough to be partnered with WagerHome.com as your pay per head software provider, then you’ve managed the difficulties of life without sports better than most. And that abyss that is the empty sports calendar thanks to COVID-19 is about to come to a close.

On June 11, the PGA Tour will return at the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial in Ft. Worth, Texas, and sports fans and bettors alike couldn’t be more ready. It won’t look exactly like the golf we’ve been watching, but it will be close.

Spectator-Free Golf

There will be no galleries of fans when golf tees off in a month. There will only be a stripped-down version of the ubiquitous gear and merchandising vans that have become a PGA Tour staple.

But if any sport can be played responsibly, safely, and with all social distancing measures in place, it is golf. The only real big challenge left is the travel required for the golfers, their caddies, and the rest of their teams.

But where there’s a will, there’s a way, and the PGA Tour is showing us a way forward with the release of an entirely new schedule for the rest of 2020 that will include plenty of wagering opportunities.

2020 PGA Tour Revised Schedule

If you haven’t yet signed up with WagerHome.com as your pay per head software provider, now is the time to do so. After the Charles Schwabb Classic is played June 11-14, golf will not miss another weekend through September. And by July 8 at the John Deere Classic, there is even a plan in place to allow spectators.

The World Golf Championships in Memphis will still go ahead, now slated for the end of July when the Olympics were originally scheduled. And the ever-popular Memorial Tournament has moved to mid-July and will now be played the weekend The British Open was to be played.

The Majors

Speaking of The Open Championship, which has been postponed for a year and will not be played in 2020, there are still major championships on the calendar, and they are currently taking wagers.

pga tour

The PGA Championship is still scheduled for August 6-9, and it’s no surprise that Rory McIlroy is still the favorite at +600. Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, and Justin Thomas are tied behind him at +1200.

The U.S. Open has been moved to September 17-20, and the current betting lines are much tighter there. McIlroy is +900, followed by Koepka and Johnson at +1000. Tiger Woods is fourth at +1400.

Just one week after the U.S. Open champion is crowned, the Ryder Cup will be played. If ever there is an event that needs spectators, it’s the Ryder Cup.

The U.S.-European tilt is to be played in Wisconsin this year, and the American team is the current favorite at -155. The Europeans pay +150, and a tied result is on the board at +1100.
