BETTING WITH MORE THAN ONE SPORTSBOOK!
Here are six reasons why you MUST have
more than one sportsbook account:
- You need to shop multiple books to
find the line you need, and the only way you can do that
is to have accounts open with various sportsbooks. Having
more than one 'out' helps to improve the chances of finding
variances in a particular line.
- Just as in the investment world,
you need to diversify and not put all your eggs in one basket.
In the past few years, various sportsbooks have gone under,
and taken many a gamblers' money with them.
- Every sportsbook offers various types
of bonuses, depending on the type of gambler they are looking
to attract. All sportsbooks offer the same signup bonuses,
with the focus on the initial deposit varying from 10% -
20%. Others have great deposit bonuses during key times
throughout the year.
- Some books specialize in providing a type of bet on various
sports or sporting events, depending on the strength of
the software and the expertise of that sportsbook's bookmaker.
Again, you need to shop around and find out what sportsbooks
offer what type of bets on what sports, and the type of
lines they run (especially for hockey and baseball).
Phone vs Internet
- Some sportsbooks are better at running its business over
the phone, while others that have very good software, and
loads of servers do a better job taking bets via the Internet.
However, the Internet focused books usually have lower limits
in place than those taking bets by phone. Again, you need
to find out whether or not the limits in place by a specific
sportsbook fits your money management system.
Cut Down on Account Limits or Closures
- You can do this by setting up accounts
with multiple sportsbooks. When you want to play a bet of
$5,000 for example, you might want to play $1,000 at five
different books. This helps to keep a low profile for yourself,
as all sportsbooks have key indicators that throw up red
flags for weeding out "wise guys" or "sharpies."
When that happens, you get the "VIP" treatment
by having your limits reduced, access to certain sports
limited, or simply having your account closed. But by winning
at multiple books, you can more easily stay under the radar.
