If you are one of the hundreds of thousands of clients who are members of ScoresAndOdds.com you will more than likely be familiar with the scores section of the website. It has its own domain in Scores.com and if you are accessing it from the SAO website there is a link along the top of the home page.
If you are into your sports then you really cannot go wrong with this spin off from ScoresAndOdds.com and the amount of information that you can pick up here really is something else, from the latest form guide to what TV channel the games are being shown on.
I enjoy betting on NFL and if you are the same I would advise you to take a quick look at the betting trends which are supplied free to the ScoresAndOdds.com users. You will be able to see at a glance where the weight of the money is and if you have been around the betting market for any length of time you will know what the benefits are of seeing where the money is being put down. In case you are not aware you will be able to see at a glance where the professionals are putting their money so you will be able to copy them and hopefully see a return on your investment.
There are a multitude of other benefits of Scores.com and one of the most basic, but also the most informative, is seeing what matches are being played and when they are due to take place. The odds are displayed next to matches and to top it off you are able to see the live scores as they happen. Even if you are using another sportsbook for in play betting, this feature of the ScoresAndOdds.com website really is a Godsend for every online gambler, from people who just like to bet for a bit of fun all the way to the professional gambler who will be using the same information that is presented to you in order to make a very good living.
There is also a link from the scores section of the website to a section of the website that gives out expert picks. Now I haven't really seen this mentioned very often and it is certainly not spoken about on any of the many sports betting forums that I frequent on a regular basis but the quality of the picks that are given really is outstanding and when you consider that there is no charge for these tips then it is even more amazing.
There are several tipsters to choose from with MLB being the main sport where advise is given. You are able to see at a glance, the past tips and this will give you a good idea what to expect and in terms of frequency and the type of bets. It will soon become apparent to you that certain tipsters specialise in certain teams and it is a well known fact within the sports betting industry that it is by specialising in the game play of certain teams where the big money is really made. I have a great piece of advise for you though, when I first started following these tipsters that were advertised on the scores part of the ScoresAndOdds.com website, I would chop and change between one tipster and another. The reason for this is that my chosen tipster may have gone on a bit of a losing run so I would change over. You can probably guess what happened next, the tipster I changed over to would go on a losing streak and my original choice would start winning again. Sod law, I know, but I learnt the hard way. When you have chosen a tipster on the scores section of the website, make sure that you stick with them. As long as you satisfy yourself in the first place that they are worth following then just keep following them, using a designated betting bank you will find that you won't go far wrong.
It is always the case that there will be some scores that are completely unexpected and scores that no one could possibly predict. Events like this are all part of the game and if you lose money on one of these picks you should not let is put you off. When scores like this happen the only winners are usually the sports books themselves and you may find it comforting to know that these upsets are relatively few and far between.
I would recommend that you follow some of these tipsters on the scores section of the ScoresAndOdds.com website before you start to use any real money. This is known a s paper trading and can give you an idea of the standard you can expect. One word of warning though, paper trading is highly recommended but emotionally it is very different from using cold hard cash, it is all very well placing a bet of $1000 whilst paper trading but just think for one moment how you would feel if you placed a bet of that amount out out of your own money. If it would cause you sleepless night and turn you into a stressed out wreck I would have one very valuable piece of advice for you, don't do it!
