9 bets you have to make before the 2020 NFL Draft
3rd April, 18:20The world of sports gambling is a tough one, but it is a billion-dollar a year industry. Each individual bettor makes their money by looking for (and identifying) discrepancies in betting odds.
When you find the odds you like, it is then having the courage to trust your instincts and bet accordingly. Now, you should never bet more than you can afford to lose, and you should treat it as entertainment only.
Before I get into the picks, a couple notes I wish to cover for those of you who don't partake in the world of sports betting.
Inside the parentheses for each particular bet are two numbers. The first indicates the current over/under spot, meaning that is the number we are betting on. If the number is 16.5, as it is with CJ Henderson, and we take the under, that means we think Henderson will be picked anywhere from pick 1 through pick No. 16. Anything from pick No. 17 onward would constitute a loss.
The second number indicates the odds. -110 means you have to bet $110 to win $100. Unfortunately, the house (casino, sportsbook) makes their money on that -110, which they call the rake, vig, or juice. The rake can be different for every bet. If you see odds that are greater than -110, that means it's the favored side and you pay a premium for taking that side.
Additionally, if you see odds that show a +, that means you are taking an underdog. +120 means you would bet $100 to win $120. Lastly, I have included a confidence meter, 1-5, with 5 being my most confident picks.
So, without further ado, here are my favorite picks, identified from BetMGM: 1
