Sportswagers is free and always will be. You have my word on that. However, it still costs money to run this site. $2800.00 a year to GoDaddy for hosting, bandwidth and a Virtual Private Server (VPS) so that the site doesn’t crash when it’s overloaded on a Sunday morning during NFL season for instance. We also run podcasts and webinars, which costs money and we have cash-paying free pools.

We strive to bring you the best content/strategies/selections through our writing and analysis of games every single day for 365 days a year but with the ever increasing prices of staying online, any contribution or donation (no matter how small) would be appreciated to help offset costs, much like they ask for on Wikipedia for instance.

Hi Sherwood Sorry for the confusion. I was wondering if you can explain the meaning of Betting the closing line . Thanks again
No confusion Steve and you nailed it when you said you bet Seattle +1 and they closed as the favorite. That's beating the closing line. For instance, if you bet Buffalo +7 early in the week in the NFL against Dallas and Buffalo closes at +5½ or lower than the +7 that you bought them at, that would be "beating the closing line". You have Buffalo +7 but they are only +5 today, thus you beat the closing line. It's a strategy tyhat some people employ but one can only use it if one has a great feel for the market and which way the line will move. In our last podcast, we explain why it's a bad or losing strategy.

I saw your comment on betting the closing line in the Western Michigan game. I am a little confused . Are you betting Michigan and going with the line movement or are you taking Illinois and going against it. It Happened on Sunday in NFL in the eagels Seattle game , Seattle became the favorite . I notice it a lot I'm not NcAA fan. Thanks in advance
That Western Michigan game has already been played. My comment was that beating the closing line resulted in a loss and that it continues to be a weak strategy that many use. Indeed, the price on Seattle rose on Sunday and those that beat the closing line won but there were more games last Sunday under those conditions that lose, Denver, Cleveland, Washington and San Fran for instance.

Lamar Jackson laying 2-1 for MVP looks like an absolute lock.

If he stays upright, he's a lock. He's a running QB so one hard hit, misstep or something else and his season could be over in a flash. Not worth the risk at that price in my opinion.
