Obviously, sportsbooks are going to take more than two bets on any game, but this example is for simplicity’s sake. Looking at the total number of bets on different games over the course of a week and adjusting the moneyline and other numbers is another way the bookie makes a profit.

“When markets become more competitive, prices fall,” says Moskowitz, who was rooting for perennial disappointment England in last Wednesday’s match, because one side of his family is English. He’s typically more hard-headed when he thinks about sports, as shown in the 2011 bestseller “Scorecasting” that he co-authored with Sports Illustrated writer Jon Wertheim, applying economic analysis to sports.

For once I am very happy about how a round turned out from a betting perspective at this edition of the World Cup.

Throughout January and into the middle of March, as football winds down, there are thousands of betting opportunities each and every week. With around 100 NBA and NHL games and over 300 college games per week, there’s a minimum of 1,200 spread, moneyline, and over/under bets to make. That does not include any of the props!

The Key: The Utah Jazz will be hungry for a victory tonight over the Oklahoma City Thunder. They have lost all 3 meetings with the Thunder this season, including the last two in excruciating fashion by a single point each. They’ll avoid the season sweep and get a win and cover at home tonight. The Thunder have been vulnerable of late, going 3-7 SU & 1-9 ATS in their last 10 games overall. They just aren’t playing much defense at all, allowing 108-plus points in 11 of their last 12 games overall. The Jazz are 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 games off a loss. Take Utah.
