How to Play with a Big Bonus Sportsbook and Still Get Paid

Big Bonus Sportsbooks – Big Rewards & Even Bigger RisksEvery year, about 100 new sportsbooks are created and every year about 95% of these companies go out of business by the end of the NFL season.  These are the new and small operations that give out 100% cash bonus or even up to 200% bonus in free play in order to get started.

For the veteran sports bettor, that is an offer that is too true to be good.  That is because of the legitimate online sportsbooks that have been around for over a decade and have a reputation for paying their players’ winnings in a fast and efficient manner only give out up to 30% bonus.

Despite these facts, thousands of sports bettors are still willing to take the risk of not getting paid on their winning because they do not know anything about the offshore sports betting industry or because they are willing to take the risk for a large possible reward.

Tom Brady Agrees to Extension with the Patriots for 2 More YearsTom Brady is a name that is synonymous with the New England Patriots and today it will remain that way for another 2 years. Brady with six Super Bowl appearance and four rings since he started playing with them back in 2000 is one of the Patriots' greatest asset and most football handicapping exerts agree that this must be a relief for the Patriots.

NBA Betting Tips – NBA Trade Deadline

NBA Betting Tips – NBA Trade DeadlineOne of the trickier times to handicap any sport is in the final week prior to the trade deadline. This is particularly true for the NBA, as basketball teams have much smaller rosters than other sports (such as the NFL or MLB), and a trade involving three or four players basically devastates that team’s active roster for an entire game.

For this reason, it is wise to wait as close to tip-off before placing a wager either on or against an NBA team in case any late-breaking trades are released. The worst thing that can happen to someone betting on the NBA is to do all of the handicapping, only to have that work wasted by a surprise trade.

The NBA’s All-Star break was this past weekend, but there have been no NBA games played so far this week. There are three games scheduled for Thursday – the same day that all trades must be finalized. The six teams involved in those Thursday games is what this NBA handicapping approach really applies to this year.
