So I'm playing the sports book, all day Saturday and Sunday. Most of the people in the room are betting football--and I am, too. But that's just to get me to the basketball games. The oddsmakers know too much. The experts at Las Vegas Sports Consultants--which sets the lines here, and at most of the other sports books on the Las Vegas Strip and beyond--have spent the past few days crunching numbers and checking injury reports so they can create a point spread that will attract about the same amount of money on both sides.
That's what they're hired for. It's a big business, and a faulty line on an NFL playoff game can mean a multimillion-dollar loss to a casino. The bets on a typical college basketball game play out on a far smaller scale. Even Las Vegas Sports Consultants must make manpower decisions on a football weekend, and most of the basketball games I see on the electronic tote board on the back wall here hardly rate more than a moment's attention. The odds making on Louisville-Southern Mississippi probably took all of three minutes; Wright State-Butler maybe half of that.
In that case, yes, you do stand a good chance of knowing more than the oddsmaker. I've been planning for this weekend all season, monitoring various teams and checking with friends who do the same around the country. My Louisville source insists that the Cardinals have the potential to be a Top team. And my sister, a fierce University of Connecticut supporter, is certain that her Huskies will bounce back from a loss to Notre Dame with a big victory against Pitt tonight.
UConn-Pitt is hours away. So is Stanford-Arizona, another game I've targeted because I believe top-ranked Stanford is ready to be upset. That 10 percent margin, called the vigorish or the rub, creates profit for the house. I sprawl out in an oversized velvet chair, with the odds board looming overhead and a cocktail waitress circulating.
I order a club soda and settle in. Unlike blackjack players, I can't lose more money while I sit. Of the hotels on the Strip, the Mandalay Bay is among the new generation, though that definition changes every few months amidst a new flurry of construction. Man cannot live on spreads alone. Mandalay Bay's sports viewing area is large and comfortable, a living room setting.
It doesn't try to replicate a sports bar. Mandalay Bay is also the only hotel on the Strip in which you can ride down the elevator from your room and walk out the front door without passing through the casino. That's either a bold design move reflecting an increasing amount of convention business, or a monumental miscalculation. Before breakfast Saturday, I'd stopped by to look at the betting lines.
Unlike in horse racing, in which you know the exact odds you're holding only after the windows have closed, in sports betting you keep the line you had when you placed your bet. That can be hours or even days before an event actually starts. If betting on one side gets particularly heavy, the oddsmakers compensate by shifting the line to counterbalance the play, like sliding the weights on a scale until the arm steadies. Sometimes lines shift by several points. That sends the professional bettors scurrying from one sports book to another, looking for half-point differences here and there, trying to get down action that offers insurance against a loss and provides the opportunity to win twice.
Win twice? Well, consider that if you can get the Titans giving four points and then the Bills getting six, you're going to win at least one of the two bets. It's a mathematical certainty. If you win just one, you'll lose the 10 percent vigorish on the other for your trouble. But if the Titans happen to win by exactly five points, no more or less, you'll win both. If too many bettors succeed at doing this, the casinos lose big. But a casino can win big if the majority of the betting money is wrong.
The ideal is to equalize the money wagered on each team so the casino will take its 10 percent cut with no risk, but often one team is too popular, no matter what the odds. I'm flat-out gambling against the customers on those games. While I ate breakfast, several lines moved. Louisville had been giving 11 points, but was now giving Like the stock market or getting a mortgage on a house, you choose between momentum and locking in a favorable number.
I liked that point spread enough that I placed a bet, but I shouldn't have. Sitting in my comfortable chair now, waiting for the game to start, I notice the line has shifted to nine. I don't want to bet on too many games because my odds will diminish with each. In this case, the sports book is unlike the stock market, where diversified accounts are optimal.
The odds here favor the house, so it's necessary to carefully select games in which you believe you have an advantage. For every loser, there's a winner, and the laws of probability will inevitably send random bettors toward 50 percent. It's also important to resist unfavorable lines, no matter how much you know about the game.
I'm aware that woeful Harvard, my alma mater, managed to beat Dartmouth last month in Cambridge. Getting eight or nine points at Dartmouth tonight, the Crimson would be a good bet. Regretfully, I keep my money in my pocket. And regrettably, as it turns out: Harvard upsets the Big Green. But I do want to bet. That's what I'm here for. So with the Titans leading late in the third quarter and Louisville up five early on, I again approach the betting windows.
Three clerks who could be bank tellers sit behind a row of computerized printers, ready to take my money. Television screens mounted behind them show games and races, so I don't have to miss the action while I'm betting. That spread seems too close to me. I figure I know more than the fat guy, who's probably just an Iowa grad with money to burn. Turns out I do. Then I walk back from the betting window and spot a familiar face. In a VIP area separated from the rest of us by a velvet rope, watching horses on a tiny screen with a pair of portly friends, sits the most famous sports bettor in America.
Pete Rose has gained weight and a bald spot, but remains instantly recognizable. I had known him when I wrote for The Cincinnati Post in the mid-'80s. I even won a casual basketball bet from him once during an NCAA tournament. If he was wagering on baseball at the time, as he is accused of, I was not aware of it. I do know that he was a regular at the Tampa, Florida, dog track during spring training, and he loved the horses, too.
On the big screen, the Titans have returned a kickoff for a touchdown in the game's final seconds. The screams and moans from half a hundred assembled fans can surely be heard as far away as the baccarat tables. But Rose remains fixed on the small screen in front of him, where he has a horse running. Evidently he wins, because he high-fives his colleague with a resounding thump. I've won, too--on the Titans. But I've also lost. Louisville did beat Southern Mississippi, but not by enough.
With my afternoon bets already made, I decide on a change of venue. The Redskins are beating up on the overmatched Lions, and I watch part of that game and the beginning of Arizona-Stanford from the exercise bike in the Mandalay Bay spa. I feel doubly virtuous as I sweat and the Redskins win. The Arizona game is on in the spa locker room. I relax in the sauna, dip in the hot-water plunge, sip green tea in a bathrobe, cheer out loud as Arizona pulls away down the stretch.
Winning feels good, I decide. Then I go upstairs and dress for dinner. I have no way to watch UConn-Pitt, a game deemed too unimportant for even the small screens. But that doesn't mean I can't win money on it. When I return to the sports book at 7 p. Rose is still there, sitting between two large-chested women. I watch the Hornets play the Nuggets on one screen, Colorado play Kansas on another, and Pete play the pari-mutuels a few feet away from me.
Rose and I reminisce about a dog we knew in Florida one year that won 17 straight races. He tells me about a dog he's seen since that would vault over its rivals at the finish line. But even the lure of talking to Rose again--he has a quick, logical mind, which is what made him a heady player and a good manager--can't keep me from focusing on my games.
I watch Kansas hold a second-half clinic and dismantle Colorado. Dismayed, I postpone dinner for the end of the Nuggets-Hornets game. With left, the Nuggets have a five-point lead, which is a point too many for me. Only a foul can doom them now, so they let the Hornets advance the ball to the top of the key unmolested.
The Hornets could drive to the basket and score, which would bring them under four points and get me a win, but instead someone throws up a three-pointer that clanks off the rim. I have been a victim of a betting adage that says the more your aims differ from your team's aims, the more trouble you're likely to have.
Sometimes you'll hear a fan screaming at his team even though it's up by 12 points with a minute to go. That means the spread was probably
The Martingale System is probably the best known casino gambling system in the world, and also the most popular. In the Martingale System, the player begins by making a small bet — usually the table minimum. If the player wins, they make that same small bet again. If they lose, they instead double their bet.
If the player loses again, they double their bet again. The player continues doubling their bet until they win, at which point they revert to their original small bet size. This means that in each iteration of the Martingale, the player will win the minimum bet size. Or they might have the following sequence:. The player can double six times:. If the player makes a bet on one of the even money bets — say, betting on black — they have 18 ways to win, and 19 ways to lose.
This means the player will lose However, the principle remains the same — the player cannot overcome a series of bets that have a house edge simply by creatively structuring their bets. On the other hand, can betting strategies help you when you already have an advantage? The answer is emphatically yes!
In fact, betting strategy is critical for anyone who wants to be a profitable blackjack player. But betting strategy can be much more complex than that. Figuring that out requires the player to take into account the size of their bankroll, as well as the size of their edge over the house.
One method of figuring out the optimal bet size is to use the Kelly Criterion. The Kelly Criterion is an attempt to maximize the rate at which a player can make money when they have an edge without having a significant risk of ruin. This will slow the game down considerably and allow you to play longer without risking a lot.
If you are card counting, then hopefully you know all the correct surrender plays to maximize the potential of this great player option. Tip 15 — Never double 4,4. For some strange reason players that would never double a 3,5 or 2,6 suddenly want to double a 4,4.
Keep in mind, most of you will not be playing a game like this. Tip 17 — Never go all-in. Always leave yourself enough money to double or split your hand. Should you opt to split it, you still do not know what the second card of the split hand would be, and could potentially end up with 2 hands of lesser value than That is not a chance you should take, given the original hand itself has such great winning potential.
Here are a few more tips that can help you maximize your chances by converting even an average hand into a potentially winning one. Doubling down is another option that you can use very effectively when you play blackjack. However, the trick of mastering the art of doubling down is to know the best hands for which you can use this option. You can opt to double down when:. There are a lot of simple things that all Blackjack players should be aware of if they want to increase their chances.
Here are some intriguing questions. There is no such thing as a winning streak, always remember that. You just happened to win few hands in a row, you applied your strategy right and you had a bit of luck. There is absolutely no statistical or any other sort of a guarantee that you will keep on winning. Soon enough you may end up losing your full bankroll. That is another Blackjack myth. All dealers are instructed to do the same things under the same circumstances and the decks of cards which are dealt at each table are consisted of the same cards.
Of course, it is always fun to play Blackjack and if you manage to win some extra cash, it would be a true crown of a really fun night out. But it is best to avoid the Blackjack table if you had too much to drink. Not only that you might forget the Blackjack basic strategy, but you will also feel bolder and you might start making rash decisions and wager too much money. By the time you sober up you might be fully bankrupt. In order to learn how to play Blackjack like a pro, you will have to memorize the Blackjack basic strategy.
It is best to spend some time learning it and then test yourself practically. All you need is a deck, or a few decks of cards, and you can play Blackjack by yourself. After that spend some more time studying the strategy and try again. Nobody likes losing and we all love winning, but generally speaking, emotions are not your friend.
You should never get too emotional about Blackjack or any other game. Learn to control your emotions before you start playing Blackjack. Start playing for real money only when you are fully aware of everything regarding the new game. That is one of the common misconceptions. You should never stand on a soft 17 ace and 6 , you should always hit.
Statistically, your chances of winning are increased significantly if you hit on a soft If the dealer is prevented by the rules to hit on a soft 17, you are not and you should definitely do it. Probably not. In fact, it is a good idea to make a break every now and then, take a short walk, have a meal or a snack, or simply just leave the table for a bit.
