You might have noticed that with respect with sport betting tactics or strategy recommendations the advice you get is literally all over the map. As in ask three different sport betting gurus for their very best advice and you will walk away with three different answers, some of them contradicting each other.
That being said, there is one underlying truth with sport betting that you have to make sure you understand. This is the undeniable fact that your sports book will most always have an edge up on the latest info about the event. Never forget these sports books can only stay in business if they make a profit. This profit shows up to you in the form of the average of 4% vigorish of the amount you are wagering.
A key implication of that last point is that it means that you must win more than you think. You many have heard or seen some incorrect advice that just does not apply to sports betting. This advice goes something like this : you only need to win about 51% of the time.
Uh no. Not so much. In fact, if that is that is your strategy you may well find yourself with a significantly lighter wallet or purse at the end of the year. You see, in real math terms you must account for the vigorish discussed above. What that means in the real world is that you must win at least 52% of the time to come out ahead at the end of the year. Got it?
Moving on then, another piece of contrary sport betting wisdom you will want to acquaint yourself with is about the focus. As you already know, the traditional approach with the most common sport betting action is to wager on the opposing player or team. But here’s a new twist for you. Turn this upside down and look at it another way.
Instead of the traditional sport betting approach, think about sport betting as not so much betting for a team as much as you are betting against their opponent. Huh? In plain English, all that really means is that you may end up better off if you assume the attitude you would have if you were in one of those last man standing pools in football betting pools. In other words, surprisingly often, you are better off finding the worst team and then betting against them.
Why does that work? Actually the answer is amazingly simple. Believe it or not, bad teams are more consistent than good teams. Shocking but true. Now do you understand the value of taking a good hard look at what you think is sports betting wisdom?
With all of the attention that the sports betting and most especially the daily fantasy sports betting world has been receiving as of late it will come as no surprise to you that there is a new sports betting platform now available. This latest move is a possible solution to common bottlenecks experienced by sports betting fans.
You know what that means. Things like sports wagering portals that seem to take forever to update. Or the difficulty experienced when navigating between the various sports betting venues and markets.
To address all those frustrations and of course keep their online sports betting fans loyal, William Hill recently made available their newly engineered sports betting platform. This sports betting platform sports the name ‘Project Trafalgar’. From early indications, Project Trafalgar looks to be raising the proverbial bar as far as sports betting platforms are concerned.
According to William Hill, the Project Trafalgar platform is designed so that there is nothing less than seamless navigation back and forth between the various sports betting markets. William Hill also stressed the point that Project Trafalgar allows their customers to directly benefit from faster in-play betting.

Project Trafalgar signals an important shift in our digital product offering, giving us complete control over the experience we offer our users.”
There. Did you see it? Right there in that last quote. In essence William Hill went back to the proverbial drawing board and came up with an entirely new approach. An approach that more and more online sports betting fans are outright demanding these days. In shorts, a sports betting experience that is completely tailored to them.
As you can plainly see from the above, William Hill just raised the bar on sports betting platforms. Truth be told, that is a good thing for all sports betting fans. The more seamless and the faster the sports betting platform performs, the more engaged and the more enjoyable will be the punter’s experience.
