How to Bet On Sports > Shopping for the Best Line

We recommend having accounts at multiple sportsbooks, allowing you to shop for the best sportsbook line, for the best possible number before placing a wager.

For example, consider a scenario where the Orlando Magic are -2 vs. the New York Knicks at CRIS. However, after shopping at different sportsbooks, you notice Sports Interaction has the Magic at -3 vs. the Knicks.

If you like the Magic, you’d want to bet them -2 at CRIS. However, if you like the Knicks, you want to bet them +3 at Sports Interaction.

Our research indications that continually getting an extra 0.5-point to 1.0-point every time you bet will increase your win percentage by 1-3%. That can be the difference between a winning and losing season.

Taking advantage of shaded lines is one of the fundamental strategies we use to increase value by Betting Against the Public.
