NFL tips for betting football for sports gamblers

5 top tips from expert football handicappers for betting NFL and college

In our monthly conference calls with our industry expert handicappers, tipsters and analysts, we asked them to share their top tips and wisdom for investing or betting the NFL and college football this season.

You can imagine this opened up a bit of debate, a lot of consensus, and a tone of great insider tips for newbie sports bettors to the seasoned sports investor and Sharps.

Remember, all expert handicappers and analysts go by their alias name below due to the privacy agreements we have with them. Why the privacy? All of our handicappers, tipsters and analysts have their own private syndicates, and/or services selling tips and picks.

As we offer a completely different high-value member model that allows sports bettors and investors to subscribe to ALL of the handicappers and analysts, and get ALL their sports prediction selections and coverage (not just a pay-per-pick that all of them offer), we’ve could only get them on-board to contribute to IBT’s sports betting system (see video) and prediction model if we retained their privacy. After all, for the price and value IBT offers, we’re dramatically under-cutting their competing sports prediction services.

nfl betting mistakes

9 out of 10 NFL bettors make these mistakes

nfl betting mistakesBetting on NFL and college football is a common past-time of most sports fans who follow football. Whether they’ve found a legal way to bet at an online sportsbook, Vegas or among friends and fantasy leagues, the thrill of making or purchasing your weekly NFL picks and throwing some of your hard earned dollars or part of your bankroll can be equivalent of watching your lotto numbers come up on the screen.

ESPN college football betting system

ESPN college football sports betting system, good or bad?

There is a tendency with high profile college football games that high-volume of public betting money will flow into the online sports books and influence the bookmakers to adjust their lines – obviously an insight Sharps sports bettors watch.

But this post is not about Sharps betting strategy on college football games, but instead the good and bad of using major media outlets as ESPN college football predictions in your college betting strategy, especially for those of you who use ESPN for college basketball picks against the spread.
