Tips on Managing NBA Futures Betting
- Set max betting limits on all players for all teams except…
Set max betting limits on almost every team to win rings this season. The Milwaukee Bucks, especially, have a great shot of winning the NBA Championship. The Bucks are led by Giannis Antetokounmpo, The Greek Freak.
He might be the most exciting player in the NBA since Michael Jordan. That’s saying a lot. His stats certainly imply he is. The Greek Freak’s surrounded by other talented players. If you allow $500 to be wagered on Milwaukee and they win the championship, the payout is $3,250 and the players get the $500 investment back. That’s a massive payout for the second choice to win the NBA Championship. Use the mass editing tool and set max betting limits!
- Allow extra wagers on Golden State
You can allow extra wagers on the Golden State Warriors, though. Golden State should win their third straight title. However, they won’t have a homecourt advantage if they meet the Bucks in the championship series. Not only that, Milwaukee looked great when facing Golden State during the regular season.
Also, it takes so much money to just make $100 on the Warriors, you should be okay if Golden State wins even if you set a max betting limit of $500.
- Set override limits over the weekend
Don’t allow players to wager on NBA Championship Futures over the weekend. This could really get you in trouble if you do. Set an override and then reopen futures wagering after lines have naturally adjusted.
Tips on Managing 2019 NBA Playoff Games Betting
- Set max betting limits on all players on all moneyline bets
Absolutely set max betting limits on all players on all moneyline bets. Players could key on a specific moneyline and make you pay big time. Don’t mess around with moneylines.
- Use the line mover to offer better odds than Vegas
Use the PayPerHead line mover to attract wagers. What you could do is check player reports, find out a specific player’s tendencies, maybe they always wager on the Boston Celtics, then give them a half a point on the line. Make sure they know you’re giving them a half a point. This not only helps you attract action it also builds customer loyalty.
- Use the layoff account no matter the game
Vegas odds should be perfect for the 2019 NBA Playoffs betting. Don’t try to outsmart your players by handicapping the game. During the regular season that’s okay, but during the playoffs stick to using the layoff account.
- Use the APS to make payouts and collect
The Agent Payment System allows pay per head agents like you to collect and payout via either traditional/fiat currency or via cryptocurrencies. Now that PayPerHead has developed a mobile system that adds to the mobile user experience, you can make payouts and collect no matter where you are or what you’re doing. Try to make payouts and collect after each game is graded. Don’t allow your players to fall down the rabbit hole.
Keep in mind that as a PayPerHead agent you not only have access to a top per head sportsbook, but you also have access to a top online racebook. The Kentucky Derby is just around the corner, meaning it’s Triple Crown Season! Offer wagering on the best in both domestic and international horse racing.
