NFL Preseason Week 2 Betting Picks to Consider

by WagerHome Blog on August 17, 2021

Some people think you should never bet on the NFL preseason. We think those people either:

a) don’t like fun
b) don’t like football
c) don’t like betting, or
d) all of the above

It is tough to bet in Week 1 when you’re not sure who is going to play, what rookies are going to see significant snaps, or what kind of offense each team is going to run. But now that we’ve seen everyone play at least one game, we can go into Week 2 preseason action with good intel to help guide our picks.

On Tap Bets – NFL Week 3 Edition - On Tap Sports Net

We love to bet all year round, even if it’s preseason football. That’s why for me, those fans who think you should never bet on the NFL preseason either don’t like fun, don’t like football, don’t like betting, or all of the above.

New England Patriots (-1.5) at Philadelphia Eagles

The New England Patriots failed to cover last week against Washington, but quarterback Mac Jones looked good against a really solid Washington offense. The expectation is that he will play even more against the Philadelphia Eagles and look better against a lesser defense.

Jalen Hurts needs more work for Philly after only completing three passes against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and that gives the edge to the Patriots.

Pick: New England (-1.5)

Detroit Lions (+6) at Pittsburgh Steelers

If this was the regular season, you would take the Pittsburgh Steelers and lay the points. But they are going to continue to keep Ben Roethlisberger safe on the sidelines, while the Detroit Lions are going to keep working on growing the chemistry between Jared Goff and his new collection of wide receivers.

Six points is just too big of a spread for a game that will mostly be played with backups. You may not get to do this all season, so this week, take the Lions.

Pick: Detroit (+6)

Kansas City Chiefs at Arizona Cardinals (+2.5)

Neither starting quarterback saw significant Week 1 action, and neither one will this Friday either. But the Arizona Cardinals have more to play for. The Kansas City Chiefs are working on some depth and getting their O-line up to speed. The Cardinals are trying to push their offense to the next level.

Kansas City puts this game into cruise control first, and that’s why we like the Cardinals.

Pick: Arizona (+2.5)

Tennessee Titans (+3) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Last week, the Tennessee Titans were getting 2.5 points against the Atlanta Falcons. They won by 20, holding Atlanta to just three points. Be a believer in this Titans team. They have a good deep offense, and because defensive improvement is such an important thing for them, they are taking the preseason seriously.

You won’t see much of Tom Brady after he finished Week 1 with just nine yards passing. And with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers having 22 incumbent starters returning in 2021, their backups will play a much greater role than Tennessee’s. For that reason, we like the Titans to cover.

Pick: Titans (+3)

Wyndham Championship Betting Favorites, Underdogs and Darkhorses

by WagerHome Blog on August 10, 2021

The Wyndham Championship is the final event of the PGA Tour regular season and one final chance for each golfer to gain a berth in the FedEx Cup playoffs and to secure their status for the 2022 PGA season.

It’s a relatively easy course, and the winner of the event this weekend should shoot better than 20-below par, with only two par-fives that are easily reachable. But who exactly does this kind of course favor?

Webb Simpson.

Favorites to Win Wyndham Championship

  • Webb Simpson (+1200)
  • Hideki Matsuyama (+1400)
  • Louis Oosthuizen (+1800)
  • Patrick Reed (+2200)
  • Brian Harman (+2800)
  • Will Zalatoris (+2800)
  • Jason Kokrak (+2800)
  • Sungjae Im (+3000)
  • Kevin Kisner (+3300)
  • Russell Henley (+3500)
  • Tommy Fleetwood (+3500)

It’s a little simplistic to say that Webb Simpson is made for the course at Sedgefield Country Club, but he does have a pair of runner-up finishes here and a win 10 years ago. He also has been good with the putter this season, which will be key to getting your number low enough to win. He’s the deserved favorite.

Hideki Matsuyama is second, coming off his showing at the Tokyo Olympics. He missed out on a medal in his home country but was in the seven-player playoff for the bronze medal. His good play in Tokyo combined with his good season on Tour makes him an interesting play this weekend.

Underdogs and Darkhorses

Russell Henley is paying +3500, almost three times what you get for a bet on Simpson. But with a top-20 finish at the U.S. Open, the Travelers, and the John Deere, he’s played very well this summer. Ignore his struggles at The British Open. Henley is a much better putter on the Bermuda grass of Greensboro, and he will be in the mix when the weekend rolls around.

Si-Woo Kim is paying even better at +4000, and he has a win on this course, coming in 2016. He has struggled since The Memorial, which is why he is paying so well here. But this is one of the places where he thrives. Along with that win five years ago are a pair of top-5 finishes in each of the last two years. At +4000, he is simply too solid a play to ignore.

Keep an eye on Jhonattan Vegas at +5000. With the biggest names on Tour over in Japan, he has had quite the run, with four top-20 finishes in five starts and a pair of runner-ups. With most of the big names still missing and Vegas with a top-10 finish here at Sedgefield, give him a look this weekend. He has the game to match this course.

Pay Per Head Software

What to Look for Betting NFL Preseason Week 1

by WagerHome Blog on August 9, 2021

Thursday night’s Hall of Fame Game was just a little taste of the return of football. In the first NFL preseason game of 2021, we saw the start of running back Najee Harris’s career with the Pittsburgh Steelers, linebacker Micah Parson’s career with the Dallas Cowboys, and the Steelers covering the 1.5-point spread.

With a full slate of games kicking off on Thursday and going on through Sunday, there are dozens of more storylines to follow and 16 new point spreads to wager.

Week 1 Preseason Schedule

  • Steelers at Eagles (-1)
  • Washington (-2) at Patriots
  • Bills (-2) at Lions
  • Titans (-1) at Falcons
  • Cowboys at Cardinals (-1)
  • Dolphins at Bears (-3.5)
  • Broncos (-1.5) at Vikings
  • Browns at Jaguars (-1.5)
  • Saints at Ravens (-2.5)
  • Bengals at Buccaneers (-6)
  • Jets at Giants (-1.5)
  • Texans at Packers (-3)
  • Chiefs at 49ers (-2.5)
  • Seahawks at Raiders (-1.5)
  • Chargers (-3.5) at Rams
  • Panthers at Colts (-1.5)

It’s the preseason, so everything should be wagered in moderation because you never really know who is going to play and what is going to happen, but there are some intriguing games to keep an eye on.

We have a number of regional battles this week. The fans care, and some of the players care too, so give an extra look to Steelers-Eagles, Jets-Giants, and Chargers-Rams. Zach Wilson does not want to be embarrassed by the team the New York Jets share their stadium with. And the new head coach of the Los Angeles Chargers takes on his old head coach with the LA Rams, in a stadium they also share.

New Quarterbacks

The other games to watch involve new quarterbacks. It’s the Miami Dolphins against the Chicago Bears, and Tua Tagovailoa vs. Justin Fields. They actually played against each other once in the 2018 SEC Championship Game. But that was before Fields was a starting quarterback and at Ohio State. We may not see them in the lineup at the same time, but it’s still worth a watch.

Trevor Lawrence and the Jacksonville Jaguars hosting the Cleveland Browns will be interesting. Don’t tell the fans in Florida that it doesn’t matter in the standings. And if Lawrence completes a pass to Tim Tebow, Jacksonville might collectively pass out.

We won’t see much of Patrick Mahomes in San Francisco, but the real interest is how much of Trey Lance will we see as compared to Jimmy Garoppolo and what that might mean for the regular season.

It’s the same scenario with the New England Patriots. Cam Newton appears to still be the starter, but if Mac Jones looks good against that Washington defense, how quickly will that change?

Preseason Odds to Win Super Bowl LVI

by WagerHome Blog on July 20, 2021

The winner of the upcoming Super Bowl LVI has always been one of the most popular futures bets to place. Last July, the Kansas City Chiefs were the favorite to win, paying +650. The eventual champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers were paying +1200 when training camps began, and Tom Brady took his first snaps in Tampa Bay.

No surprise that as we begin training camps this week for the 2021 season, both Kansas City and Tampa Bay are at the top of the favorite’s board.

Odds to Win Super Bowl LVI

  • Kansas City Chiefs (+500)
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+700)
  • Buffalo Bills (+1300)
  • Baltimore Ravens (+1400)
  • Los Angeles Rams (+1400)
  • San Francisco 49ers (+1400)
  • Cleveland Browns (+1600)
  • Green Bay Packers (+1600)
  • Indianapolis Colts (+2200)
  • Seattle Seahawks (+2500)
Tom Brady and Buccaneers dominate Chiefs 31-9 in Super Bowl LV – Orange  County Register

The winner of Super Bowl LVI has always been one of the most popular futures bets to place. Last July, the Kansas City Chiefs were the favorite to win at +650.

Kansas City Chiefs

The last time we saw the Chiefs, their offensive line was being abused by the Buccaneers front-seven. The next time we see the Chiefs, they will have at least four different offensive linemen in the starting lineup and possibly five. Orlando Brown, Joe Thuney, Creed Humphrey, Kyle Long, and Trey Smith are new additions expected to keep Patrick Mahomes upright and leading Andy Reid’s top offense.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay spent its offseason ignoring other team’s free agents in pursuit of signing its own. They re-signed Shaq Barrett, Lavonte David, and Antonio Brown, returning all 22 starters from their Super Bowl win. At some point, Tom Brady will get old. It hasn’t happened yet, however, and bookmakers don’t think it’s going to happen to any significant degree this year either.

Buffalo Bills

The Bills and Josh Allen got within a game of the Super Bowl last year before losing at Kansas City in the AFC Championship Game. There isn’t much more room for Allen to improve, but the Buffalo pass rush needs to be better in 2021. If rookies Gregory Rousseau and Carlos Basham can fill the Bills’ needs on the EDGE, they will once again be in the Super Bowl mix.

Ravens, Rams, and 49ers

The three teams tied for fourth on the favorites list will live and die by the play of their quarterback.

Baltimore has a former MVP under center, and if he returns to his 2019 form, watch out for the Ravens. The Rams are hoping that new quarterback Matthew Stafford can breathe life back into their offense and put them back into the Super Bowl after two disappointing postseasons. And the 49ers, the NFC Champions in 2019, will either ride with a healthy Jimmy Garoppolo or turn the offense over to rookie Trey Lance.

Pay Per Head Software

With training camps now here, the season is just around the corner. Independent bookmakers looking to maximize an NFL season of wagering should take this time right now to find a top pay per head software partner.

Open Championship Betting Underdogs and Darkhorses

by WagerHome Blog on July 13, 2021

The Open Championship is back this week after the 2020 major tournament was canceled due to strict travel restrictions brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. The 149th playing of the tournament will be held at Royal St. George’s Golf Club in Sandwich, England, along the country’s eastern coast. This will be the 15th Open Championship and the first since 2011 teeing it up at Royal St. George’s.

Shane Lowry hoisted the Claret Jug and was named the “Champion Golfer of the World” after a six-shot victory in 2019. Lowry (+8000) was a longshot champion, and there have been four players that have won the Open Championship ranked outside the top 100 since 1996. Two of those winners came on this golf course.

We’ve covered the favorites, so now we’ll look down the board and target some underdogs and dark horses who could bring us a hefty payday with a victory this week.

Betting Underdogs

Both Darren Clarke (2011) and Ben Curtis (2003) were heavy underdogs when they won the Open Championship at this venue. That gives bettors hope that a player down the odds list could take home the Claret Jug.

Christian Bezuidenhout (+7000)

The South African golfer is a three-time winner on the European Tour. Christian Bezuidenhout missed the cut in 2019, his first Open Championship experience, but made the cut in all three majors this season. The 27-year old is the 45th ranked player in the world.

Garrick Higgo (+8000)

Another South African player, Garrick Higgo has flown up the OWGR this year to 40th in the world. Higgo is just 22 years old but already has a three European Tour and PGA Tour victory to his name. This will be his first time teeing it up in an Open Championship.

Betting Darkhorses

Matthew Fitzpatrick (+4000)

Matthew Fitzpatrick lost in a playoff last week at the Scottish Open, so he’s coming into the Open in good form. The 26-year old former U.S. Amateur champion is a six-time winner on the European Tour and logged his best finish in an Open Championship in 2019 (T20).

Lee Westwood (+4500)

Lee Westwood has had a bit of a resurgence of his career this year with a pair of back-to-back second-place finishes at the Players and Arnold Palmer. The veteran golfer has five top-5 finishes at the Open Championship, including a T4 in 2019. The 48-year old finished T35 last week at the Scottish Open.

Jason Kokrak (+8000)

Jason Kokrak has a pair of PGA Tour victories this season and three other top-10 finishes. Kokrak hasn’t had much success in majors this season, but he ranks 15th in Strokes Gained: Total and 4th in SG: Putting and those two numbers cannot be ignored this week.

Early Betting Picks for the 2021 Open Championship

by WagerHome Blog on July 1, 2021

The 2021 Open Championship is nearing as the 2021 calendar year‘s final major. We’ve had three major champions this year, all with their own amazing storylines attached with their victories.

After the 2020 Open Championship was canceled due to travel restrictions relating to COVID-19, the players return to the United Kingdom for the first time in two years. It is never too early to dive into our favorites to hoist the Claret Jug and be named “The Champion Golfer of the Year.”

When you go to make your bets, here are a few things to keep in mind.

Can Rahm Continue the Momentum?

Jon Rahm captured his first major championship last month after clutch birdies on the 71st and 72nd hole of the US Open to propel him to victory. Rahm is now the betting favorite to take the Open Championship (+900). The 26-year old has all the momentum heading into the tournament, but he has never placed inside the top 10 in five Open starts.

Rounding out the top five favorites is Dustin Johnson (+1100), Rory McIlroy (+1100), Brooks Koepka (+1400), and Jordan Spieth (+1800). Koepka and McIlroy posted a pair of top 10 finishes at the US Open. Shane Lowry, the defending Open champion, was a massive underdog at +8000 to win.

U.S. Open 2021: Jon Rahm's gutsy 72nd-hole decision and 17 other parting  thoughts from Torrey Pines | Golf News and Tour Information |

Jon Rahm is the betting favorite to take the 2021 Open Championship (+900).

Hovland a Name to Watch

Viktor Hovland became the first Norwegian to win a European Tour tournament at the BMW International Open in Germany at the end of June. Hovland has finished in the top 5 in six tournaments on the PGA Tour, including a victory at the Mayakoba Golf Classic in December.

Hovland is +2500 to win the tournament and a name to closely research before placing your Open bets prior to the start of the tournament.

Stats Back Scheffler Pick

Scottie Scheffler makes his first trip to an Open Championship venue in 2021. Normally, you tend to look at players with a history of playing links golf, but Scheffler’s rise has put us on notice.

The 25-year old is still searching for his first career victory. With top 20 finishes at all three majors, including T8 or better at the PGA Championship and US Open, Scheffler is a value pick that should not be ignored even with his lack of history playing across the pond.

Westwood Rounds Out the Picks

Lee Westwood resurgence in play this season, including a pair of solo second finishes at the PLAYERS and Arnold Palmer. Westwood has made it to the weekend in each major this year, his best finish T38 at the Masters.

The 48-year old Westwood has had a lot of success in Open Championships, finishing in the top 5 in five tournaments, including T4 in 2019. As Phil Mickelson showed us by winning the PGA Championship earlier this year, age is just a number in golf.

2021 Open Championship Picks: Rahm (+900), Hovland (+2500), Scheffler (+5000), Westwood (+5000)

Pay Per Head Software
