Pala Casino 400 Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on February 23, 2023

After a thrilling Daytona 500 on the east coast of Florida, NASCAR makes the trek across the country to Southern California for the Pala Casino 400.

The hubbub of Daytona is now in the rearview mirror, and we settle in for the marathon that is the Cup Series season.

Favorites to Win Pala Casino 400

Kyle Larson (+650)
Denny Hamlin (+800)
Chase Elliott (+800)
Ryan Blaney (+1000)
Kyle Busch (+1000)
Christopher Bell (+1000)
Tyler Reddick (+1200)
Ross Chastain (+1200)
Martin Truex, Jr. (+1200)
Joey Logano (+1200)

Kyle Larson only finished 18th at Daytona, but he is the favorite because of his history at Fontana. He was the winner here in 2022 and 2017, and he has been the runner-up two other times. Larson loves racing on this track, having led here for 138 laps in his career.

Pala Casino 400

Right on the heels of Larson are Denny Hamlin and Chase Elliott. Hamlin has four top-10 finishes at Fontana in his last five races. Hamlin was 17th at Daytona last Sunday. Elliott only made it through half of Daytons before he was taken out in an accident. At this track in 2020, he finished fourth.

Three other drivers are bunched up at +1000, including Christopher Bell, who finished third at Daytona. Bell had three wins last season on his way to a third-place finish in the Cup Series. He led for 20 laps last week.

Ryan Blaney, also at +1000, finished in eighth place at Daytona. In six races in Fontana, he has three top-10 finishes. Two years ago at this race, he led for a total of 54 laps, but ended up limping across the finish in 19th place.

Among the drivers at +1200, Joey Logano, who just finished as the runner-up at Daytona, was fifth at this race last year. In 15 career races at Fontana Logano, last year’s Cup Series champion, has seven top-5 finishes.

Value Picks

One of the forgotten drivers in the field is Austin Dillon, paying +4000. He was the runner-up at this race last year and in his three previous races in Fontana he had two other top-10 finishes.

A pair of +5000 drivers also deserve your Pala Casino 400 attention. The first is Aric Almirola, who has finished in the top-10 in each of the last two Pala Casino 400s. The other is none other than new Daytona 500 champion Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. Yes, it’s hard to win back-to-back starts. But Stenhouse finished in the top-10 at Fontana last year, and he’s clearly off to a great start in 2023.

Honda Classic Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on February 21, 2023

The PGA Tour concluded its west coast swing with an electric appearance by Tiger Woods at Riviera Country Club. He finished well off the lead, but considering this was his first tournament since last July, we’re going to see great things from Tiger before this year is over.

The Tiger Woods magic was also present in the person of Jon Rahm, who continues to dominate the sport in a way not seen since Woods was in his prime. Rahm has won five of his last nine starts, and all nine of those starts have ended with him in the top-10.

Favorites to Win the Honda Classic

Sungjae Im (+850)
Shane Lowry (+1600)
Aaron Wise (+2200)
Alex Noren (+2500)
Chris Kirk (+2500)
Denny McCarthy (+2500)
Matt Kuchar (+2500)
Min Woo Lee (+2500)
Billy Horschel (+2800)

Honda Classic

The PGA Tour heads to Florida for the Honda Classic this weekend, the final Honda Classic to be played. Beginning in 2024 there will be a new title sponsor for this longtime stop on Tour. Part of the reason Honda is pulling out is that because of the schedule, this has become a rest week for most top golfers.

Sungjae Im is the best golfer in the field and the runaway favorite in the field. He missed the cut at PGA National last year, but he was eighth in 2021, and he was the winner here in 2020. Just two weeks ago, he finished T6 at the Phoenix Open, following up a T4 at the Farmers Insurance Open.

Shane Lowry is coming off a T14 at the Genesis Invitational, fueled by a final round 68. Last year at this event, he was the runner-up at -9. Lowry, along with Im, are two of the three top-20 golfers in the World Rankings in the field this week.

The third of those top-20 golfers is Billy Horschel, who is off to a rough start this season. He missed the cut at both the Genesis Invitational and Sony Open. His best finish since the calendar flipped to 2023 was a T30 at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. Horschel has twice finished in the top 10 at this event.

Upcoming PGA Schedule

The course at PGA National is still one of the best on Tour, with 26 different water hazards on the course. But the best golfers in the world are using the shift to the east coast as a chance to rest up for the two big events coming up in March, the Arnold Palmer Invitational and THE PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass.

This week the field takes a step back in quality, but in the first two weeks of March, it will be the best field seen outside of a Honda Classic major championship.

Pay Per Head Software

The PGA season is heating up now that it is in Florida, and this is the time for independent bookmakers to join forces with a top pay per head software provider like

NBA Championship Odds

by WagerHome Blog on February 16, 2023

As we head into the NBA’s All-Star weekend, it is the perfect time to check in and see who are the current betting favorites to win the NBA Finals in June.

Boston Celtics (+270)

The favorite to win the title is the best team in the Eastern Conference, the Boston Celtics. They have the best depth in the league, Jayson Tatum is having a career-year with more than 30 points scored per game, and Marcus Smart came back on Wednesday from an ankle injury and was immediately his usual great defensive self.

The break is needed with the Celtics nursing a few injuries, but this is a team built to win a title.

Milwaukee Bucks (+410)

Two years ago, the Bucks were champions, beating the Suns in six games. Still around from the team is of course one of the best players in the NBA, Giannis Antetokounmpo, as well as Jrue Holiday and Brook Lopez – their three leading scorers this season.

The wildcard is Khris Middleton, who has twice missed long stretches this season because of injury. He was critical to the Bucks’ championship run, and they need him to stay healthy if they hope to get to the Finals again this year.

Phoenix Suns (+500)

The Suns were the best regular season team a year ago, but they were bounced in the conference semifinals by the Dallas Mavericks. Of course, that roster did not include Kevin Durant, and this year’s roster does. Adding him at the trade deadline to Chris Paul, Devin Booker, Deandre Booker, and Mikal Bridges has the fans in Arizona expecting a better playoffs in 2023.

Denver Nuggets (+750)


Nikola Jokic is a heavy favorite to win yet another MVP award. It would be his third in a row if he does in fact win it. So far, however, his personal dominance has yet to work out for the Nuggets. They made the conference semis when Jokic won the award in 2021, but were knocked out in the first round last year in his MVP repeat season.

This Nuggets team does have the best record in the West heading into the All-Star break, so maybe this postseason will be different.

Los Angeles Clippers (+1200)

Still, in search of their first-ever trip to the NBA Finals, the Clippers are paying the fifth shortest odds on winning the NBA title. That’s quite high on the odds board, considering that the Clippers are only fifth in the Western Conference and unlikely to climb any higher than third.

It all comes down to health for this team. If Paul George and Kawhi Leonard are healthy in the playoffs, they could be dangerous. If they aren’t healthy, the Clippers have no shot.

Pay Per Head Software

The NBA All-Star game is this weekend, then it’s the stretch run to the playoffs. If you are an independent bookmaker looking to maximize your NBA profits, now is the perfect time to partner up with a top pay per head software provider like

Daytona 500 Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on February 14, 2023

For those of you in a post-Super Bowl betting malaise, not to worry. The Super Bowl of NASCAR is coming this weekend with the 65th running of the Daytona 500 – the Great American Race.

It is the kickoff to the NASCAR Cup Series season, and it is the most prestigious race on the NASCAR schedule. Win here and your place in American auto racing history is secured. And the start of the Daytona 500 NASCAR season also helps fill the void of weekly Sunday betting, now that the NFL has shuttered for the next seven months.

Favorites to Win Daytona 500

Ryan Blaney (+1000)
Denny Hamlin (+1100)
Kyle Busch (+1200)
Chase Elliott (+1200)
Kyle Larson (+1400)
Joey Logano (+1400)
Ross Chastain (+1600)
William Byron (+1800)
Bubba Wallace (+1800)
Brad Keselowski (+1800)

Daytona 500

Ryan Blaney has never won the Daytona 500, but he did win at Daytona during the 2021 season in the Coke Zero 400. In 2022 he failed to take a checkered flag, but he did have a career-high 12 top-five finishes and he finished eighth in the Cup Series.

Right behind him is Denny Hamlin, and three-time winner of the 500. He took back-to-back wins in 2019 and 2020, and he was also the winner in 2016. He was wiped out of Daytona last year because of an accident, but overall his 2022 was very good. He finished with two wins, 10 top-five finishes, and fifth place in the Cup Series standings.

The winner of the Cup last year, Joey Logano, is tied for the fifth shortest odds at Daytona. He won this race in 2015, but hasn’t been very good on this track in recent years. He was 26th in 2020 after suffering an accident, he had another accident in 2021 that landed him in 12th position, and last year he crossed the finish line in 21st.

Best Value Bets

It’s the first race of the season, and no one really knows what to expect. And that means that some drivers come into the race carrying excellent value.

Michael McDowell won Daytona 500 race in 2021 and last year he finished seventh. But he’s paying +3500 because he finished last season without a single win. Still, a past champion, and recent champion, is really good value with those long odds.

Chris Buescher is also paying +3500, and he too has struggled on the circuit everywhere but Daytona 500. In 14 career starts on this track he has three top-five finishes, five top-10s, and just a year ago he won the Bluegreen Vacations Duel at Daytona.

Best Super Bowl LVII Bets

by WagerHome Blog on February 8, 2023

If you have been placing bets all season long on the NFL, you can’t wait until Super Bowl Sunday. But even if you’ve only dabbled in NFL betting, or are a complete novice to the pastime, the Super Bowl is an attractive betting event.

An estimated 50 million Americans will place wagers on the Super Bowl, putting over $16 billion on the line. It’s huge business, it’s an unofficial national holiday, it’s the biggest winter party in the U.S.A., and you need to get prepared.

Total Points

The 1.5-point spread that favors the Eagles doesn’t come with any clear patterns, so for the business of naming the “best bets” we’re going to avoid that. But when it comes to a totals bet, which currently has a line of 50.5, we have history to look at.

In each of the last four Super Bowls it is the UNDER that has won this bet. And in two of those the UNDER won by big numbers.

We love offensive football, and the betting public would prefer to root for scoring, as opposed to rooting against it. So they tend to like the OVER. But as you can see from recent history, it’s not always the best way to go.

Coin Toss

If you are planning to bet on the result of the coin toss – heads or tails – there is of course a 50% chance you will win your bet. But if you are betting on the winner of the game based on the winner of the coin toss, buyer beware. Each of the last eight teams to win the coin toss have gone on to lose the game.

This bizarre and inexplicable streak began when the Seahawks won the coin toss but lost to the Patriots, and it extends through last year’s game where the toss was won by the Bengals, but the game was won by the Rams.

Eagles First Half Points

Right now the Eagles first half over/under is 12.5 points. Considering that they averaged a league-best 18.2 points in the first half during the regular season, and have scored 28 and 21 first-half points in the postseason, this is an excellent bet to place.

Gatorade Shower

The final bet of the night takes place after the game is over – the color of the Gatorade shower the winning coach takes as the team celebrates its Super Bowl championship. In Super Bowl LIV the Chiefs showered Andy Reid in orange, which is paying +250 this season.

Super Bowl

When the Eagles won in Super Bowl LII, the color of the Gatorade was yellow, which is paying +150.

Pay Per Head Software

The clock is ticking on NFL betting. If you are an independent bookmaker there is still time to join forces with a pay per head software provider in time for the Super Bowl, but you have to act now. With, you get a fully customizable website, access to their huge menu of sports and betting options – like Super Bowl props – plus EZ live betting.

WM Phoenix Open Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on February 7, 2023

It may only be the second biggest sporting event in the WM Phoenix area this weekend, but the crowds at the WM Phoenix Open are likely to be the most lively in the state. While the corporate crowds of the Super Bowl will gather in Glendale, Arizona, on the other side of town up to 300,000 fans will turn TPC Scottsdale into a loud and raucous four days on the course.

WM Phoenix is one of the PGA Tour’s favorite stops, because of the crowds, and also because of the golf. Five of the last seven tournaments here had to go to a playoff before a winner was decided.

Odds to Win WM Phoenix Open

Rory McIlroy (+700)
Jon Rahm (+800)
Cameron Smith (+1200)
Scottie Scheffler (+1400)
Jordan Spieth (+1500)
Justin Thomas (+1600)
Xander Schauffele (+1800)
Tony Finau (+2000)
Will Zalatoris (+2000)

Rory McIlroy makes his first stop on the PGA Tour in the new calendar year. He has played this event once in the past, in 2021, and he finished 13th that year at -13. McIlroy is the number one ranked golfer in the world.

Spain’s Jon Rahm is ranked third in the world, and his 2023 is off to a great start. In January, he won at both the Sentry Tournament of Champions and The American Express at PGA West. He finished the month at the Farmer’s Insurance at Torrey Pines with a seventh-place finish.

Scottie Scheffler is the defending champion at this event. Last year’s win in Scottsdale was the first Tour win of his career, and it launched an unforgettable year. He won four times in 2022, including at The Masters in April. He finished T2 at the U.S. Open, was ranked No. 1 in the world, and he won the Jack Nicklaus Award, given to the PGA Tour’s golfer of the year.

Good Value Bets

Hideki Matsuyama (+3300) loves playing at WM Phoenix. He was a runner-up in 2015, and then he won back-to-back in 2016 and 2017. He was also a top-10 finisher here in 2022.

Brooks Koepka (+3500) is also a two-time winner at this event. He beat Matsuyama by a stroke in 2015, and was a single-stroke winner in 2021. When he won at the WM Phoenix Open in 2021 he was +5000 when the tournament began. He was +4000 the first time he won.

If you are looking for a longshot to play, Keegan Bradley (+12500) is worth a look. He was a runner-up at the Farmers Insurance Open two weeks ago, following up on a strong finish to 2022 when he was T5 at the Sanderson Farms Championship and the winner at the Zozo Championship.

The Super Bowl Betting Extravaganza

by WagerHome Blog on February 2, 2023

For football fans, and fans of football betting, there is no bigger day on the calendar than Super Bowl Sunday. It is a day-long celebration of the NFL season, and more than 40 million Americans are expected to supplement that celebration by putting money down on the game.

Sports betting has never been more popular, the NFL has never been more popular, and marrying the two is a match made in prop betting heaven.

The Super Bowl doesn’t kick off until February 12, but you can start making your prop bets right now.

Cross-Sport Parlay Proposition Bets

Some of the most interesting and engaging bets offered on the Super Bowl are combination bets that include Super Bowl props with props from other sports that weekend. One bet being offered is for Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco to go over 69.5 yards rushing, and for the Bucks Giannis Antetokounmpo to go over 29.5 points.

There are also bets that tie in Patrick Mahomes’ passing totals to the winner of the Phoenix Open, taking place on the other side of Phoenix from the Super Bowl.

In fact, you don’t even have to wait until next weekend for these cross-sport parlays to begin. You combine events this weekend, like the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am or this Saturday’s UFC event, with propositions from the Super Bowl.

Head-to-Head Prop Bets

Another type of prop that shows up during the Super Bowl that you don’t see very often during the regular season are head-to-head props. Similar to what you can find with golf bets and auto racing bets, these are bets between two players, and you wager on which will end the game with the most yards.

They also have defensive head-to-head props that involve tackles. There is no over/under on the bet. If the running back you wagered on finishes with just 11 yards, you will still win if his head-to-head opponent only gets 10 yards.

Super Bowl Exotic Props

super bowl

The name “exotic prop” conjures up images of a tropical island proposition bet. What is meant by exotic is props that don’t actually involve the game. Bets on the coin toss (heads/tails), the over/under on the length of the National Anthem, and the color of the Gatorade dumped on the winning head coach.

You can bet on which beer commercial will air first, which car commercial is first, and which celebrities we will see in the crowd. And of course you can place a wager on who the MVP of the game thanks first, mom or dad.

Pay Per Head Software

If you are an independent bookmaker, don’t leave money on the table during the Super Bowl. If ever there was a week to join forces with a top pay per head software provider, this is it.
