David vs. Goliath in Bookmaking

by WagerHome Blog on March 3, 2023

This is truly the golden age of sports betting, and the pie among bookmaking is big. But at times the independent bookmaking can feel like it’s getting smaller and smaller because of all of the big and well-known bookmaking that are coming online.

What is Pay Per Head?

A partnership with a pay per head software provider is simply a way for you to farm out the hard and time-consuming work of bookmaking, helping you compete with the Goliaths of the industry and freeing up your time to work on client outreach.

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.

Pay Per Head Software

We have NASCAR and golf every weekend, the NBA season is in its second half, and March Madness is just around the corner. If you are an independent bookmaker looking to maximize your profits, now is the time to join forces with a top pay per head software provider like WagerHome.com.

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.

Pay Per Head Software

If you are an independent bookmaker looking to take full advantage of the new NASCAR season, now is the time to join forces with a top pay per head software provider like WagerHome.com.

Betting the NFL Divisional Round

by WagerHome Blog on January 17, 2023

Annually it is the best weekend of the year. The fringe playoff teams have been removed from the mix, and only the eight best teams remain, all with the ability to win the NFL Super Bowl.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Kansas City Chiefs (-8.5)

The Jacksonville Jaguars spent the first 30 minutes of their Wild Card game against the Chargers looking like a team that had picked No. 1 overall in the last two NFL drafts. They spent the final 30 minutes looking like a team that can pull off an upset in Kansas City. Who shows up this Saturday?

Probably a team that is in-between. We will see a Jacksonville that definitely belongs, and is definitely on the rise, but they simply don’t yet have the consistency of the Chiefs. And especially at Arrowhead. The rested Chiefs get a big NFL day from Patrick Mahomes and win this game by 10 points.

New York Giants (-7.5) at Philadelphia Eagles

We’re not going to take it as far as predicting a Giants win, but Daniel Jones has been on a tear since he and the Giants were beaten badly by the Eagles in NFL Week 14, and Jalen Hurts isn’t 100 percent. Just how much pain Hurts’ shoulder is still causing is unclear, but in Week 18 he admitted that he was causing him issues.

The rest of the Eagles team is better than the Giants, and that will be enough to get Philly to the NFC Championship. But look for New York to make it a closer game than expected.

Cincinnati Bengals (+5) at Buffalo Bills


When the Bengals and Bills were stopped in Week 17, Cincinnati was up 7-3 and Joe Burrow was looking on point. But since then the Bengals have lost two more offensive lineman, and they head into Buffalo more short-handed than in the Monday game that was canceled.

Both NFL teams struggled to put away backup quarterbacks in the Wild Card round, but Josh Allen’s turnovers are becoming a problem. Even with the offensive line issues Burrow will take advantage of that, just like Miami, and Cincinnati will make this a very close game.

Dallas Cowboys at San Francisco 49ers (-4)

Will the real Dallas Cowboys please stand up? Are they the team that struggled against the Commanders and got beat in Week 18, or the team that blew out the Bucs? They are both, and that is the problem for them in this matchup.

San Francisco has been the most consistent NFL team over the final two months of the season, and on both sides of the ball. Even if the good Cowboys show up, it won’t matter. The 49ers are a machine, and they will cover this spread.

Pay Per Head Software

There are only seven NFL games left in this season, and four of them are this weekend. If ever there was a time for independent bookmakers to join forces with a top pay per head software provider, this week is it.

Top NBA Friday Night Betting Picks

by WagerHome Blog on January 13, 2023

The NBA is gearing up for a big holiday weekend with seven-afternoon games on Monday for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Before the league gets to Monday, the weekend begins with nine games on Friday, including a pair of nationally televised Western Conference showdowns on Friday.

This NBA weekend also marks the halfway point of the regular season for most teams, and Friday’s action includes multiple teams battling to get over .500 and stay in the playoff race.

Golden State Warriors at San Antonio Spurs (+8.5)


The defending champion Golden State Warriors are (20-21) as they head to Texas for a nationally televised Friday night game against the San Antonio Spurs (13-29).The Warriors have struggled on the road this season with a 3-16 record, and they are 18-22-1 ATS on the season. The Spurs are 21-21 ATS, but just 8-14 at home, and they enter Friday’s game on a three-game losing streak.

San Antonio is 5-22 against Western Conference teams, including a 37-point loss to the Warriors in November. Golden State has Steph Curry back in the lineup, and with two days off since Tuesday’s loss, he should be good to play against the Spurs. Look for the Warriors to win, but the Spurs cover the number.

Orlando Magic at Utah Jazz (-5.5)

The Orlando Magic (16-26) are on the tail end of a five-game road trip as they get ready to take on the Utah Jazz (21-23). So far on their trip out west, the Magic are 2-1 with wins over Golden State and Portland. They are 6-14 on the road overall and 22-19-1 ATS, while the Jazz are 24-10 ATS and 8-16 at home.

Orlando has scored at least 109 points in five straight games, but the Jazz rank third in the league in scoring at 117.3 ppg. Look for this one to be a race to 120 points as it sails over the 232.5 total points.

Houston Rockets at Sacramento Kings (-9.5)

These NBA teams are headed in opposite directions as the Houston Rockets (10-31) have lost eight in a row while the Sacramento Kings (22-18) have won five of eight. The Kings lead the NBA in scoring, averaging 119.2 ppg, and they shoot nearly 50% from the field. Sacramento has topped 130 points in three straight games, and they’ve scored at least 110 in eight of their last 10.

Meanwhile, the Rockets rank 29th in scoring (109.2 ppg), and they allow 116.3 ppg, which is in the bottom five in the NBA. They have allowed at least 130 points in two of their last three games and have lost by double digits six times during their losing streak.

The Kings should win this game based on the way the teams have played the last two weeks; look for them to cover a double-digit spread.

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 on Burrow: Time to Bet Bengals Win Total for 2020?

by WagerHome Blog on April 30, 2020

It’s not often that people are excited to bet on the Cincinnati Bengals. But after a good draft that saw them pick Joe Burrow as their new starting quarterback – as expected – there is a buzz with the Bengals that hasn’t been there in many years. So much buzz in fact that the over/under on their 2020 win total is now 6.0.

So is this a time to put money down on Cincinnati? Can the Heisman Trophy winner make that much of a difference and make the Bengals good buys for the 2020 season? The history on that is mixed, and the answer is far from certain.

Joe Burrow vs. Peyton Manning vs. Andrew Luck

The Indianapolis Colts have been in a position to grab franchise-saving quarterbacks with the first overall pick twice since 1998 in Peyton Manning out of Tennessee and Andrew Luck from Stanford.

The year prior to Manning’s selection, the Colts were 3-13. The year with Manning as their rookie quarterback, the Colts were also 3-13. So there was no improvement there, although in year 2, Manning led Indy to a 13-3 record.

For Luck, the improvement was far more immediate. The Colts were 2-14 before he was drafted and 11-5 in his rookie year. So big turnarounds can happen.

Joe Burrow vs. Baker Mayfield vs. Kyler Murray

Burrow’s selection marks the third straight season that a quarterback has gone first overall. In 2018 the Cleveland Browns selected Baker Mayfield, while in 2019, the Arizona Cardinals picked Kyler Murray. All three of them won the Heisman Trophy the year before their selection.


It’s worth noting that neither Mayfield or Murray were the sure things that Burrow is thought to be, but both did lead their teams to improved records. Mayfield only started 13 games in 2018, but the Browns improved in the win column by seven victories. Easier to do when you were 0-16 the year before, but still, that’s a very noticeable improvement.

Murray, for his part, improved the Cardinals from 3-13 to 5-10-1. So not as big a jump, but still noticeable.

Joe Burrow vs. Andy Dalton

One big difference in the Burrow selection is that the Bengals weren’t saddled last year with a terrible quarterback. Andy Dalton has never been exciting but has always been solid.

The Browns, Cardinals, and Colts didn’t have a competent NFL quarterback as their starter prior to drafting their young superstar. So just how much will Burrow move the needle in Cincinnati?

Oddsmakers say they’ll go from two to six wins. It’s a tall order, but definitely not impossible.

Pay Per Head Software

If you want to take bets like this as your own sports bookmaker, sign up with a pay per head software provider. They will handle the administrative side of your business, leaving you free to handle your customers.

WagerHome.com provides four free weeks to give them a try and gives you an experienced partner to help navigate through this temporary downturn in the sports betting market.
