Sports betting is currently the most popular form of gambling across the globe. It is quite simple, lots of fun, and an easy way to make good cash. You simply have to predict which team will win in a sport that you love and are paid for it. However, there is a possibility of you losing a considerable amount of money as well. To help mitigate the risks involved, below are a few tips that you can use.

Tips to help with sports betting

Choose the right betting channel

The betting channel that you choose determines how successful you can be in sports betting. A majority of people prefer using online sites. For such a case, you should ensure that you choose a trustworthy website. The site should offer good security to your money and information. It should also have a great interface that is user-friendly, which will minimize the amount of time taken to bet and the chances of making errors when placing your bet. Another feature to check when choosing a site is the odds. Choose a site that offers the highest odds to ensure the highest winnings for the bets that you will place.

Bet responsibly


Sports betting, just like any other form of gambling, can be quite addictive. Addiction, in turn, leads to irresponsible betting. You should ensure that the amount of money you place in any bet is affordable to you based on your income and be willing to lose the amount in case the bet does not go your way. You should also have limits as to how much time you allocate to sports betting. Make sure that you are of a sober mind when placing the bets to ensure that you make the best choices. Responsible betting increases your chances of getting success in sports betting.

Take time to educate yourself

Before you start betting, you should ensure that you learn all the basics of sports betting. Learning all the basics before you place any wager will help you make better betting decisions and enjoy the experience as well. It will also reduce the chances of you making errors as you bet. Learning can go further than just the basics. For example, you can learn about the past performance of the teams that you wish to bet for, their current form, and the particular players who will be in the lineup. Such information will help you make better decisions and thus increase your chances of winning.…

Gambling is a great way to have some fun and even make money while at it. It has been there from the traditional times and has increased in popularity with more people becoming gamblers in recent times. Among the main reasons as to why gambling popularity is increasing is the introduction of online gambling. This means that you no longer have to walk physically into a casino for you to fulfill all your gambling desires. All you need is a computing device with an internet connection. Below are a few of the reasons as to why you should gamble online.

Reasons to gamble through online casinos

To enjoy the convenience

The convenience that comes with gambling online is quite significant. As mentioned earlier, you do not need to visit a casino physically for you to enjoy the gambling games. You get to enjoy them from the comfort of your office or home, saving you on commuting time and money. You will also not have to deal with con artists, dressing rules, noise from other gamblers, and various other forms of distractions. Online casinos operate for 24 hours each day, meaning that you are not limited in any way as to the time when you can gamble.

To get better terms

Hanson’s MLB Debut Pitch F/X
By PWHjort | June 8, 2009
Update 06/08/2009: Velocity Chart Changed: more aesthetically pleasing.
I just finished compiling all the pitch f/x data for Tommy Hanson’s MLB debut so I could make a velocity chart and analyze his outing. Hanson’s final like was 6.0 IP (18 outs recorded), 7 runs (6 earned), 6 hits, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts, 1 double, 3 home runs, and 1 batter reached on an error on the infield.
And here is the velocity chart:
(The blue squares are fastballs, the yellow up-side down triangles are sliders, the orange diamonds are curveballs, and the maroon side-ways triangle is the change-up)
Tommy Hanson Velocity Chart
Now, for the raw data. Hanson threw 91 total pitches. He threw 55 fastballs, 16 curveballs, 19 sliders, and 1 change-up (a ball WAY outside to Prince Fielder). The average velocity of his fastball was 93.6 MPH. The average velocity of his curveball was 75.88 MPH. The average velocity of his slider was 88.0 MPH. And the change-up he threw clocked at 83 MPH. I’m wondering if that change-up was something that he wasn’t trying to do and the ball slipped out of his hand but it charted as a change-up. I don’t know, but it isn’t really important to the analysis.
There were 20 action pitches on Hanson’s fastball. 12 outs, 2 singles, 1 double, 3 home runs, 1 walk, and 1 batter reached on an error (J. J. Hardy courtesy of Yunel, though it was a tough play). Hitters posted a line of .316/.350/.842 off of his fastball. There were 3 action pitches on his curveball and they all resulted in outs. There were also 3 action pitches on his slider that also all resulted in outs. Of the 5 strikeouts he got, 3 were on his fastball. 2 of them were swinging and 1 was looking. The other 2 were swinging through his curveball.
So why was his fastball getting hit so hard? Well the velocity was certainly there with an average of 93.6 (that’s very fast). And just looking at the game you’ll see that the movement on his fastball was there. Not flat by any means.
3 of the times his fastball got hit were in 2 strike counts. A single was hit in a 1-2 count, the double was hit in a 2-2 count, and one of the homers was hit in an 0-2 count. I don’t know if this was the Management’s decision or David Ross’s decision or Tommy Hanson’s decision, but why throw a fastball 0-2 or 1-2? OK, it’s fine to throw a fastball 0-2 or 1-2, but probably not for a strike. David Ross kept calling for fastballs with 2 strikes on the hitter. I was thinking to myself, “0-2, go to the slider or 1-2, give ‘em the hook”, but the fastball kept on coming. Organizations frequently encourage young starters to throw more fastballs. Which I can’t really argue with. But after you’ve established your dominance with the fastball (in the words of Tim Lincecum ha.), there’s nothing wrong with throwing an 0-2 slider in the dirt or a 1-2 slider or curveball or whatever. You have pitches to waste. Anyway, after striking out Prince Fielder on a 95 MPH Fastball and Mat Gamel on a 96 MPH Fastball in the 2nd, it seemed like every time Hanson got 2 strikes he tended to favor the fastball. And it also seemed like he was over-throwing it, because it moved more. Into the right-handed hitters. And all 3 home runs were hit off right-handed hitters. The first home run was hit by Braun in a 1-0 count. And he’s Ryan Braun, every now and then he’ll hit one in a 1-0 count. One of the singles was hit in a 2-0 count. When you fall behind a hitter you frequently give up hits. At least it was …
