MLB, NBA, NHL All Set to Return in July

by WagerHome Blog on June 30, 2020

Normally, the sports calendar in July is so slow that ESPN puts out its annual award show, The Espys, just to help fill the void until things return. With only baseball to fill our weeks, and NFL training camps beginning at the end of the month, sports fans and sports bettors know that July is the best time to take family vacations.

Not this year.

Get ready for the greatest month of July the sports world has ever seen.

The Return of Baseball

Finally, after multiple weeks of negotiating, fighting through the media, telling us the season was 100% going to happen, then not happen, and then happen again, MLB and its players union have an agreement to begin the season on July 23.

It will be an all-out 60-game sprint to the playoffs and a season unlike anything we’ve ever seen before, with all teams only playing games against their division or the corresponding regional division in the other league (NL East vs. AL East, and so on).

NBA Seeding Games and Playoffs

One of the reasons the NCAA Tournament is so great is that there is no waiting for basketball to start. Games tip off early, and never seem to stop. Now imagine an NBA world like that. How amazing would it be?

Imagine no more, because when the NBA resumes on July 30, they will play 88 seeding games to finish out the season in just two weeks time. Twenty-two teams, three courts, four television networks (TNT, ESPN, ABC, and NBATV), and games starting as early as 12:30 pm ET through as late as 9 pm ET.

You can’t really go anywhere at the moment, so grab your remote, your favorite betting app, and prepare for NBA basketball overload.

NHL Playoffs

A Stanley Cup Playoffs like we’ve never seen before will also be coming to our televisions in late July. Twelve teams from each conference are in, with the top four teams in each playing a round-robin tournament for seeding, while everyone else plays in a best-of-five series for the right to get into the final playoff bracket.


The NHL still hasn’t decided which cities will serve as hubs for these games, or when exactly players will report. A new CBA is close to finalization, which, along with creating labor peace for the next six years, will create the return-to-play protocols, including a date certain for the resumption of training camps and the playoffs that follow.

Pay Per Head

As the saying goes, get in while the getting is good. And the getting is about to get really good with all the sports action and betting that is coming our way.

The best bookies need the best bookie software and a pay per head service that can truly enhance their business. For a nominal price per head, bookmakers get a fully customizable website, detailed client reports, 24-hour customer service, and all the sports and automated odds and lines your clients could ever want.

UFC Fight Night: Poirier vs. Hooker Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on June 25, 2020

It’s another weekend of top-flight UFC action from the Apex in Las Vegas, with this week’s fight card featuring a main event of Dustin Poirier vs. Dan Hooker – two top five ranked lightweights looking to move up for a title shot.

Poirier is the favorite at -225, but with seven wins in his last eight bouts, no one is sleeping on Hooker at +180. Both fighters are looking for that one signature win that will put them into contention.

Poirier has been around for years and is very popular on the circuit. But Hooker has the advantage in height, reach, and striking ability.

It’s a big fight, and Poirier has the advantage when it comes to performing in the spotlight. That’s why he’s the favorite.

But this matchup feels like it’s closer than the odds would suggest. For that reason, Hooker at +180 feels like the better bet. If Poirier was paying at -150, he’d be the bet. But at -225, it simply isn’t worth it.

Full Fight Card

Of course, Poirier vs. Hooker is just the main event. There is an entire card of fights that can be wagered on before the two of them get into the octagon.

  • Jordan Griffin (-106) vs. Youssef Zalal (-114)
  • Jinh Yu Frey (+138) vs. Kay Hansen (-175)
  • Takashi Soto (-150) vs. Ramiz Brahimaj (+120)
  • Sean Woodson (-250) vs. Kyle Nelson (+195)
  • Tanner Boser (-112) vs. Philipe Lins (-112)
  • Mara Romero Borella (+230) vs. Miranda Maverick (-305)
  • Luis Pena (-265) vs. Khama Worthy (+205)
  • Gian Villante (+180) vs. Maurice Greene (-230)
  • Brendan Allen (-305) vs. Kyle Daukaus (+235)
  • Mike Perry (-286) vs. Mickey Gall (+220)
  • Dustin Poirier (-225) vs. Dan Hooker (+180)

Perry vs. Gall is co-headlining the event this weekend, and that isn’t without some controversy. Other than being known names, they haven’t been good.

Perry has lost five of his last seven fights, and Gall’s six wins have come against guys no longer in the UFC. Absolutely anything could happen in that fight.

Other Bouts to Watch

The heavyweight fight between Gian Villante and Maurice Greene isn’t likely to be pretty, but it should be exciting. Greene absolutely needs this win to stay in the good graces of the UFC.

Kay Hansen is just 20 years old but already has six professional wins. She faces her toughest opponent yet in Jinh Yu Frey but comes in as the favorite.


And Luis Pena is the heavy favorite against Khama Worthy, who comes in on a five-match win streak. At +205, Worthy makes for a very appealing bet.

Pay Per Head

The UFC continues to give us top betting action, golf is producing great tournament after great tournament, and even baseball is now coming back. If you are a bookmaker still going it alone, you are missing out.

With a pay per head partnership with, you get a fully customizable website, automated odds updates, detailed client reports, and four weeks absolutely free to make sure it’s right for you.

PGA Tour Travelers Championship Betting Picks

by WagerHome Blog on June 23, 2020

If there ever was a silver lining to COVID-19 and three months without golf, it is this: Each of these first tournaments the PGA Tour has had since returning has had the best fields we’ve ever seen competing outside a major championship.

Everyone was chomping at the bit to get back to golf, and the return has been everything you could hope for. Last weekend at the RBC Heritage, Webb Simpson, the fifth-ranked player in the world, birdied five of his last seven holes to take a one-shot victory and set a course record at -22.

It was another great week of golf and another terrific ending. And this coming weekend at the Travelers should see the great play continue.

Stacked Field

Normally, the Travelers Championship suffers by being played the week after the U.S. Open. With the top golfers always showing up there, many of them skip the event at TPC Highlands the following week.

Not this time, as nine of the top 10 players are in the field, 15 of the top 20, and the winners of 25 total major championships.

The top odds in the field are:

  • Rory McIlroy +1200
  • Justin Thomas +1200
  • Bryson DeChambeau +1400
  • Webb Simpson +1800
  • Brooks Koepka +2000
  • Jon Rahm +2200
  • Justin Rose +2200
  • Patrick Cantlay +2200
  • Daniel Berger +2200
  • Dustin Johnson +2800
  • Xander Schauffele +3000
  • Bubba Watson +3000

Out of another great field, there are a couple of players that you specifically need to keep an eye on. Bubba Watson won the Travelers in 2010, 2015, and 2018. He loves this course and knows this course, and he should be higher than +3000. That is a really good bet.

When making any prop bets, you need to know that this course is also prone to give up great scores. Jim Furyk once shot a 58 here. Phil Mickelson shot a 61. The 72-hole course record is -22, held by Kenny Perry.

Last year’s winner, Chez Reavie, shot a back-nine 28 on his way to a four-stroke win. Reavie has opened at +12500 for the tournament this week and might be worth a small bet at those odds, considering his recent history here.


Others to Watch

Along with the favorites and recent Travelers champions, there are some other names worth watching this weekend.

Sergio Garcia (+4500) just shot -19 at Hilton Head and finished just three strokes off the leader.

Dylan Frittelli (+17500) is a longshot this weekend, but he finished last weekend with an impressive 62 on Sunday. If not for his 71 on Saturday, he would have been in the mix at the end.

Keep an eye on Abraham Ancer (+4000). He just finished second, had three rounds of 65 or lower, and has now climbed into the top 25 World Golf Rankings.

Pay Per Head Software

Bookmakers, it’s time to get into the pay per head game if you haven’t already. You get automatic odds, customizable client reports, your own personal website, and options to offer any sport, anywhere.

UFC Fight Night Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on June 18, 2020

UFC president Dana White may try and say otherwise, but there is no question that the smaller octagon being used by the UFC at Apex in Las Vegas is having an influence on the fights. It’s not a bad thing, but it is a very real thing, as last Saturday we saw the first three fights of the night all end inside a minute – the first time that’s ever happened.

The most impressive of those knockouts belonged to Tyson Nam, who dropped Zarrukh Adashev with one punch to record his first-ever UFC win at the age of 36. You just never know what’s going to happen, and that is only amplified by the smaller octagon.

This Week’s Fight Card

Twelve more fights from Apex fill out this weekend’s card, with the main event coming courtesy of the heavyweight showdown between Curtis Blaydes and Alexander Volkov. The card and odds are as follows:

  • Jim Miller (+185) vs. Roosevelt Roberts (-240)
  • Brianna Van Buren (-210) vs. Tecia Torres (+165)
  • Bobby Green (-240) vs. Clay Guida (+185)
  • Josh Emmett (+110) vs. Shane Burgos (-137)
  • Marion Reneau (+120) vs. Raquel Pennington (-152)
  • Belal Muhammad (-125) vs. Lyman Good (+100)
  • Roxanne Modafferi (-124) vs. Lauren Murphy (+100)
  • Austin Hubbard (+144) vs. Max Rohskopf (-182)
  • Frank Camacho (+100) vs. Matt Frevola (-124)
  • Cortney Casey (+100) vs. Gillian Robertson (-124)
  • Oskar Piechota (-129) vs. Marc-Andrew Barriault (+103)
  • Curtis Blaydes (-400) vs. Alexander Volkov (+300)

Blaydes and Volkov are both top-10 heavyweights, and even though Blaydes is the heavy favorite, it’s worth noting that Volkov has won seven of his last 10 fights. That includes his most recent win, a unanimous decision over Greg Hardy in November.

Also worth knowing before you place any bets is that Blaydes has won each of his last two fights before the end of the second round.

Welterweight Bout

One other fight to watch is Belal Muhammad and Lyman Good. It’s a close welterweight matchup, and the storylines are quite interesting. Four years ago, they were supposed to fight, but Good was replaced after he tested positive for a banned supplement.


In April, they were scheduled to fight again, but this time, Good tested positive for COVID-19 and again had to withdraw. Now, fingers crossed, they will finally fight.

Pay Per Head Software

The closer we get to fight time, the more the betting rolls in, and the more the odds change. And if you as a bookmaker were teamed up with a top pay per head service like, those odds would update automatically for all of your clients.

Sports is returning. The UFC is fighting each week. The PGA Tour has made a triumphant return. The NASCAR action has been as good as it gets. And it won’t be long before the NBA and NHL begin their playoffs.

Now is the time to take advantage of four free weeks from, where you will get a fully customizable website, detailed client reports, and easy access to sports and odds from across the world.

PGA RBC Heritage Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on June 16, 2020

After this last weekend, the world agrees that PGA golf without fans in the gallery is much better than no golf at all. The golfing at Colonial was phenomenal, with a 73rd hole needed to determine the tournament winner. And it could have been a three-person playoff if not for a lipped-out putt on the 17th.

Daniel Berger was your longshot winner, going into the tournament at +8000. The other big winner was the PGA Tour, which pulled off a great tournament to re-start the season, setting itself up for a good summer of golf to come.

Another Star-Studded Field at Hilton Head

You like winners? We’ve got winners. This weekend at the RBC Heritage in South Carolina, there will be a total of 114 golfers competing who have all won on the PGA Tour. They only started keeping track of that stat in 2000, but this is the most winners in a single tournament field ever recorded.

And just like last week, the world’s top five players will all be there, including Rory McIlroy making his first trip to Hilton Head in more than 10 years. The odds for the top five ranked players are:

  • Rory McIlroy +1100
  • Jon Rahm +1800
  • Brooks Koepka +3500
  • Justin Thomas +1400
  • Dustin Johnson +3500

Along with McIlroy making his first start at Harbour Town since 2009, Rahm and Koepka are making their first-ever starts at the iconic Hilton Head course.

The biggest favorite outside the world’s top five is Bryson DeChambeau. The 12th-ranked player in the world, who finished third at Hilton Head in 2018, is at +1600.

Xander Schauffele, who just narrowly missed at Colonial and was the leader after 54 holes, is at +2200. Collin Morikawa, the runner-up at Colonial, is on the board at +2500.


Other Harbour Town Betting Tips

While this field is packed with former winners, don’t ever sleep on the golfers looking for that first victory. Last year at Harbour Town, C.T. Pan was a 125-to-1 longshot who captured his first PGA win. In 2018 Satoshi Kodaira won this tournament as a 250-to-1 longshot.

This is a short course but challenging. The smart money this weekend will be on accuracy and tactical ability around the greens. If a golfer is particularly good at scrambling to save par, keep an eye on him. This is his course.

Pay Per Head Software

It was a longshot that won at Colonial last week, and as you can see, this week is another course made for big underdogs. The golfing is good, and the betting is even better, so it’s past time for bookmakers to take advantage of that by teaming up with a top pay per head software provider.

At, you get a fully customizable website, detailed client reports, customizable and automated odds, and your customers will be supported 24 hours a day. Try it all right now risk-free for four weeks before you miss out on another big weekend of sports betting paydays.

Restart Updates For NBA, NHL; MLB Negotiations

by WagerHome Blog on June 11, 2020

You can now get a haircut, go to a restaurant, and very soon you will be able to watch major American team sports on television. We’ve almost made it. Congratulate yourself, and then get ready for the wildest summer of sports you’ve ever seen as leagues continue to put together their plans to restart.

NBA Going to Orlando

The NBA’s return won’t happen until July 31, but when it does, watch out. If you thought two months of playoffs with 16 teams was intense, the restarted NBA will feature 22 teams, eight seeding games, a play-in tournament, and then a full playoff schedule of 16 teams, with every game taking place at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports in Orlando.

We’ll get the draft lottery at the end of August and October will feature the end of the NBA Finals, the Draft, and the start of free agency. Then, a new season is set to begin Dec. 1.

All of this has been approved by both the league and players union, but, as with everything in the sports restart world of COVID-19, it’s all subject to change.

NHL With 24-Team Playoffs

One-upping the NBA is the NHL’s agreed-upon restart format. The top four seeds in each conference will play a round-robin to determine final seeding, while the other 16 teams (seeds five through 12 in each conference) will play best-of-five series to determine who moves on to face those top seeds.

An exciting change and one many hockey fans have been pushing for long before this season, is that each playoff round will be reseeded. Instead of a hard bracket, which would render the round-robin of the top seeds moot, the top seed will always face the lowest remaining seed.


Teams have begun to return to their practice facilities, and the league hopes to resume play by late July/early August in two yet-to-be-selected hub cities – one for all Eastern Conference games and the other for all Western Conference games.

MLB Remains A Mystery

For weeks we have heard: “Don’t worry, there is too much money at stake for baseball to cancel its full season.”

Maybe that’s the problem. There is simply too much money at stake, both for 2020 and beyond, for MLB and its players union – two long-time adversaries – to come together.

Sliding scales, prorated pay, and different season lengths have all been discussed. Even the dreaded label “salary cap” has been said.

They’ve blown past their self-imposed June 1 deadline to get a deal done, but negotiations do continue. So does that mean there is still hope for a baseball season? Las Vegas oddsmakers say yes.

There is still a 75% chance a season will be played. But with each passing day, that becomes a longer bet.

Pay Per Head Software

Baseball notwithstanding, sports betting is coming back in a big way, and if you run your own bookmaking service, you need to be ready. Now is the perfect time to join forces with a pay per head software provider and make the most of the coming wave.

A partnership with gets you a fully customizable website, automated odds, complete customer support, and all for a small fee per person.

PGA Charles Schwab Challenge Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on June 9, 2020

The PGA Tour returns this week at Colonial in Fort Worth, Texas, and after such a long layoff, it’s impossible to know exactly what to expect from the golfers as they return to the course without fans. But what we do know is that we can expect some incredible golf.

Because this is the first tournament back since the PGA suspended the season before The Players Championship on March 12, for the first time in the 74 years they’ve been playing golf at Colonial, the top five players in the world will all be competing.

Stacked Field

According to the Official World Golf Rankings, the Charles Schwab Challenge will feature the best five golfers in the world.

  • Rory McIlroy +750
  • Jon Rahm +1000
  • Brooks Koepka +2200
  • Justin Thomas +1400
  • Dustin Johnson +2800

Of course, the two golfers who most recently played in a competition were Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods, as they teed it up in The Match: Champions for Charity. But oddsmakers don’t see that round in May having any influence on what happens this weekend.

Phil is +12500 to win, and Tiger isn’t playing. He hasn’t played at Colonial since 1997, so his absence is not unexpected.

The Rest of the Top 20

Altogether, 16 of the top 20 golfers in the world will be competing this weekend. The other 11 in attendance are (by world ranking):

  • Patrick Reed +2800
  • Webb Simpson +2000
  • Xander Schauffele +2500
  • Bryson DeChambeau +2200
  • Justin Rose +4500
  • Marc Leishman +4000
  • Tony Finau +4000
  • Matt Kuchar +4000
  • Gary Woodland +5000
  • Louis Oosthuizen +6600
  • Shane Lowry +6600


The tour’s most recent winner, Tyrrell Hatton, is not in the field this week. But the winner before him, Sungjae Im, is. He won the Honda Classic with an impressive -4 (66) in the fourth round on March 1.

The Korean is currently ranked 23rd in the world and is listed at +3300 to win this week in Fort Worth.

Prop Bets of Note

Winning Margin

  • One Stroke +225
  • Two Strokes +350
  • Three Strokes +550
  • Four Strokes or More +275
  • Playoff +400

Hole-In-One in Tournament

  • Yes -150
  • No +110
  • Rory McIlroy Hole in One +6600

One other prop bet to watch. The last time out, both Justin Rose and Tony Finau missed the cut. The odds on them making the cut this week are:

  • Justin Rose Yes (-225)/No (+165)
  • Tony Finau Yes (-265)/No (+188)

Pay Per Head Software

Each week, more sports are resuming their seasons, which means that each week that you wait to join forces with a pay per head software provider is another opportunity lost.

NASCAR QuikTrip 500 Betting Tips

by WagerHome Blog on June 4, 2020

Without fans in the stands, it might not feel exactly like live racing, but give NASCAR credit for the effort. At this Sunday’s QuikTrip 500 from Atlanta Motor Speedway, NASCAR fans will experience a first – a virtual tailgate party.

Beginning at 1:45 pm Eastern, and taking fans up to the 3 pm race, fans will enjoy live music, interviews with drivers, and behind-the-scenes tours. The race is always one of the more patriotic on the schedule because of its affiliation with Folds of Honor – a non-profit charity that provides educational scholarships to the family members of fallen service members. It will also have a military flyover before it starts.

May Results

As we look ahead to the odds and suggested bets for the QuikTrip 500, it’s always a good idea to take a look back. And doing that, it’s hard to ignore the good fortune that has struck Brad Keselowski.

A winner in extra time at the Coca-Cola 600 in Charlotte, NC, last weekend, he took the checkered flag at the Supermarket Heroes 500 in Bristol after Joey Logano and Chase Elliott crashed with two laps to go.

Keselowski said of the victory, “We kind of got a Christmas present.” But you have to make your own luck too, and it was Keselowski who had himself in position to take advantage of the wreck, and it was Keselowski who held off Clint Bowyer at the very end to take the win.

QuikTrip 500 Odds

They say it’s better to be lucky than good, but with a pair of wins in the last three Cup races, Keselowski has been both. He’s also won two of the last three runnings of this race.

But even after his successes, he is still only the fifth-most likely winner in Atlanta on Sunday. A good bet, perhaps?


Here are the top 10 odds for the race:

  • Kevin Harvick +475
  • Chase Elliott +600
  • Martin Truex, Jr. +700
  • Kyle Busch +700
  • Brad Keselowski +850
  • Joey Logano +850
  • Alex Bowman +850
  • Denny Hamlin +1200
  • Ryan Blaney +1500
  • Jimmie Johnson +1800

A couple of notes about this group. The favorite, Harvick, is always in the mix in Atlanta, with 11 top 10 finishes and more than 100 laps at the front in six of his last eight races there. But, and this is an important but, he only has two career wins in 29 starts.

If you’re looking for more of a longshot, Johnson at +1800 has five career Atlanta wins and another four second-place finishes. And Johnson just finished third at Bristol last weekend, so he and his team are currently running well.

Pay Per Head Software

Before the end of this month, the NASCAR Cup Series will race another six times. So if you are a bookmaker, or have ever thought about starting your own bookmaking business, what are you waiting for?

Now is the time to raise your business to the next level with a pay per head software provider. A partner such as will provide a customizable website, automatic odds, full client reports, and 24-hour customer service, and all for a nominal cost per customer.

Get In On The UFC 250 Betting Action

by WagerHome Blog on June 2, 2020

Hopefully you were prescient enough to put money down on Gilbert Burns last weekend in his UFC fight with Tyron Woodley. Burns’ dominating win over the former champion was a sight to see, and at +150, it was an awfully nice payday.

It’s also the kind of performance that could land Burns a title shot in the not too distant future.

Other underdogs that came away victorious last weekend were Brandon Royval (+135) and Katlyn Chookagian (+115), with the majority of the card being dominated by the favorites.

More Fighting at APEX

The smaller octagon at UFC APEX had an impact on last week’s fights, and it will again be the site for this coming weekend’s UFC 250, featuring Amanda Nunes and Felicia Spencer in the main event. This fight was originally supposed to take place in Brazil in early May, but the COVID-19 pandemic forced us all to wait an extra month.

Nunes is both the bantamweight and featherweight champion, and this will be her first defense of the featherweight title since she won it with a 51-second knocking of Cris Cyborg. On the flip side, when judging this fight, it’s worth noting that Spencer’s only loss came against Cyborg last summer.

The co-main event of the night is another fight that we’ve been waiting several weeks for. Former champ Cody Garbrandt and 37-year-old Brazilian Raphael Assuncao were originally scheduled to go at it in March before the fight was postponed by the pandemic.

UFC 250 Full Fight Card

Preliminary Card

Evan Dunham (+180) vs. Herbert Burns (-250)

Alonzo Menifield (-240) vs. Devin Clark (+185)

Alex Perez (-137) vs. Jussier Formiga (+110)

Charles Byrd (-177) vs. Maki Pitolo (+138)

Cody Stamann (-250) vs. Brian Kelleher (+180)

Gerald Meerschaert (+100) vs. Ian Heinisch (-125)

Alex Caceres (+120) vs. Chase Hooper (-150)

Main Card

Eddie Wineland (+310) vs. Sean O’Malley (-435)

Neil Magny (-150) vs. Anthony Rocco Martin (+120)

Aljamain Sterling (-118) vs. Cory Sandhagen (-106)

Co-Main Event

Cody Garbrandt (-143) vs. Raphael Assuncao (+115)

Main Event

Amanda Nunes (-590) vs. Felicia Spencer (+450)

On the preliminary card, the Alex Perez-Jussier Formiga fight looks to be one of the best. Both flyweights are ranked in the top 10.

The Aljamain Sterling-Cory Sandhagen fight on the main card pits two top-5 bantamweights. Both men are fighting well – Sandhagen has won seven straight while Sterling has won six of seven – and the winner will be set up nicely for a title shot.


As for the co-main event, Garbrandt is seen as the better fighter, but he hasn’t fought in nearly 15 months and hasn’t won since 2016. That makes a play on the plus money of Assuncao extra appealing.

Pay Per Head Software
