As we’ve discussed in prior articles, there’s many ways to become a more knowledgeable sports bettor. However, much of it comes down to doing proper research, and often times, that research comes down to stats. Whether you’re studying the starting pitchers in tonight’s game, trying to determine which team has the better wide receivers, or which team has the better 3 point shooter, whether or not you make the right bet will often come down to the quality of the research you did. But with so many options and ways to find information, it can be tough to determine what sites offer the best data.
When it comes to finding the best sports information available, it’ll be hard to do better than espn.com. You can find all sorts of data for every available metric you can think of. Other quality sites that are known for generating sports content are Yahoo Sports and CBS Sports. It doesn’t mean all of the data they have is right, or even relevant to the bet you want to make. However, the sheer amount of data available on these sites will ensure you have the confidence you need to make every bet count.
It may be tempting to try and Google certain information, and fall into opinion articles from lesser known websites. It can also be tempting to listen to the talking heads on TV or on certain sports betting related shows. Of course, considering what people say about a particular game can offer you another data point, but don’t take what people say on TV as Gospel! It’s important you have the conviction needed to make any bet, and if you do, you increase your chances of success dramatically!
At the end of the day, it’s okay to not make a bet that you’re not confident in! There’s always going to be another game to bet on. That is something you can take to the bank.
