An important part of betting on sports is getting the best line. There will be differences in the odds of the same sports event at different sportsbooks.
The NFL see the least variance in lines but even then you will see different lines on the same matchup at different sportsbooks. 1xBet, one of the larger sports betting outlets may have -3 1/2 on a matchup while another sportsbook has -3. While the half point on the line will not come into play every time, it will come into play enough to make shopping for the best line worthwhile.
In the example above, the 1xBet spread is especially enticing if you like the favorite because they have come off the number 3. Betting lines of 3 and 7 are considered 'key' numbers as games are decided by these margins most frequently. So getting the half point can often be the difference between a push or win.
As I noted last time, different sportsbooks will often have different betting lines on the same sporting event. While the NFL likely sees the least variance, college sports and daily sports like the NBA and MLB, you will be able to find different betting lines at different sportsbooks.
Another thing to consider is the more recent trend to adjust the juice while keeping the point spread unchanged. If a sportsbook wants more action on the underdog the 1xBet might adjust the line of -3 (-110) to -3 (-120). Here the sports bettor must now risk €120 (instead of €110) to win €100, so the underdog becomes much more attractive. A sportsbook will do this to encourage balanced action while not wanting to move the spread and risk getting sided or middled. This is one more way the sharp sports bettor will keep an eye open for potential bargains.
