This Monday afternoon matinee likely won’t get too many viewers outside of a certain demographic, but that’s a fantastic way to discern value.
Games with little to no magnitude — but ones with historically profitable betting systems and algorithm edges — can help you get a massive leg up on retail bettors.
This contest vibes with a profitable and proprietary Action Network betting system that reports a return on investment (ROI) of 7% since 2005.
If you had bet $100 on each game that has fit this betting trend over the past 17 years, you’d be up more than $11,000. That’s roughly $650 per year.
For reference, the annual average return of the S&P 500 — roughly the value of the American stock market — has been about 8% for over a century. Since the start of the New Year, that index is down roughly 13%.
Meanwhile, Bitcoin, for instance, is down over 55% over that same timeframe. (Don’t use this betting algorithm as an alternative to investing. Those aforementioned metrics are purely for reference.)
This system uses wind speeds to determine how you should wager on the total.
Beyond that, our proprietary algorithms also indicate value on one side of the moneyline.
Our algorithms factor in everything from injuries, to matchups, conditions and more.
This edge provides about 5% in betting value, which indicates the pick has implied odds that are more than five percentage points higher than the odds available to you in the markets.
Essentially, the line provides you 5% of expected value the moment you place your wager.
Over the long run, if you only bet on lines with at least an 5% betting edge, you’re almost assured to make a profit. In the short term, of course, variance is a constraint.
