Don’t Play Favorites
It doesn’t matter if you and your friends love the team. Bet based on the odds and the payout of the game.
Watch for Disgruntled Players
Sometimes players go fiercely on the first game against their former team after being traded. Particularly when they are a great player.
Watch Team Schedules
When teams have back to back games they can get fatigued and may not be playing their best.
When key players get injured it can change a team’s capabilities significantly.
