You probably know that you can’t just go out and play the lottery or invest in stocks without any knowledge of what you’re doing. The same is true for betting on sports. The best time to bet on a game is not at game time, but during the off-season.

Reason for Betting during Off-Season

Why? Well, if you wait until the off-season to make your bets, there will be more information available about how well each team played over the course of the year (or even preseason games).

This gives you more information to make an accurate assessment of which team will win.

Insider Tips

If you’re looking for an even bigger edge, try watching high school games to see how young players are performing before they go pro. If they’re set to join your favorite professional team, this could give you insight into their future performance.
