Top NFL Betting Tips

The National Football League is undoubtedly the most attended professional sports league in the US. In fact, during the 2011-12 season, an average of 67,394 fans attended each game.

An NFL season begins in early August with 4 preseason games. This is followed by a 16-game, 17-week regular season, which runs from September to December or early January. After which a 12-team single-elimination playoff ensues, concluding with the Super Bowl in February.

With 32 competing teams, the NFL offers a lot of matchups and betting possibilities. Here are a number of NFL Betting Tips to help you objectively weigh your NFL picks.

1 Get past the publicity

Let's look at this example:

In his first game, rookie quarterback scores a couple of touchdown passes, runs for a couple more, commits no turnovers.

Right after the game he gets into the microscope - his every move is analyzed, every word he says is scrutinized. Media outlets proclaim him as the next big NFL superstar, even a sure hall of famer.

But he's just won one NFL game. A season opener at that. Can he repeat the same performance the next game? Can he perform at that high level for the rest of the season?

A single game performance shouldn't be blown out of proportion and over analyzed. Don't look at athletes like Hollywood stars. Veer away from the glitz and glamour.

All of the hype can sway opinion for, or against, any player or team. So get past the publicity. Objectively weigh the chances of each team against this coming week's matchup.

2 Look at who's playing

The NFL is one of the toughest sports in the world. Injuries happen - not just in a game, but also while in practice. Knowing which players is injured, how severe his injury is, is a surgery required, how long he will be, or has been, out affects team performance and ultimately, your chance of winning your NFL bet.

Likewise, suspensions due to on-field antics or off-field distractions can throw-off a team's rhythm.

Careless NFL bettors focus only on the availability of star players like quarter backs and running backs. However, equal attention should be given to the availability of role players such as tackles and line backers (for the defensive line) and guards and tight ends (for the offensive line).

Football, after all, is a team sport. It takes all 22 players working on both the offensive and defensive side of the field to win a game.

Also, suspensions can deflate the morale of a team resulting to lackadaisical efforts. Meanwhile, injuries to players when used as a motivation, can boost team play. So before deciding which team to bet on, check who's playing this weekend - read news articles for player suspensions and look at the injury report, even the official NFL website has one.

3 Look at both big and small

Parity among big and small market NFL teams has been an issue for the longest time. It's always easy to assume that big market teams, stacked with superstar players, can always win against small market teams with no-name players.

To win in NFL Betting, bettors should carefully look at the chances of each team to win a particular matchup. Don't jump on a team simply because they come from a big market, more popular or laden with star players. Likewise, don't dismiss a team because you've never heard of any of its players.

College Basketball Betting Tips

A total of 347 schools compete in 32 Division I basketball conferences. However, only 68 teams qualify for "March Madness" or the "Big Dance".

Thirty-one teams earn automatic bids as conference champions. The remaining thirty-seven tournament slots are determined by a special Selection Committee appointed by the NCAA. The committee also determines where all sixty-eight teams are seeded and placed in the bracket.

With lots of teams and matchups to bet on, college basketball bettors surely have a lot to choose from. Here are a few college basketball betting tips to consider before making your pick.

1 Surely, there's home court advantage

Don't expect the referees' calls to go the home team's way. But College Basketball's home courts can be a crazy mix of loud, drunk and fanatic students and alumni.

The energy that the fans give is a sure shot of adrenalin for the home team, while it can be a pressure cooker waiting to explode for the visiting team.

Thus, a team may be particularly good at home but totally mediocre on the road. It is said that the difference between a home and road game is as much as 10 points... read more »
