The Value of Sports Betting Forums
by Predictem.com Staff

If your serious about betting on games, you need to scrape up every single tidbit of handicapping information possible to determine which side of a game your going to play, if at all.

With that being said, there's a tremendous resource for doing so that very few sports bettors are aware. We call it a posting forum, however you may hear it also be dubbed as a discussion group, newsgroup, or posting board.

A sports betting forum is an online discussion group in which a large group of people come together at one virtual location to discuss everything from the theory of betting, to discussing trends and systems and course discussing the days games. Some post information about games such as key injuries that you or others may not have been aware of, players not in starting lineups, weather reports directly related to a game, picks and some even post analysis.

Registration is usually free at most forums which is a heck of a deal considering your taking information that is/can be worth good $$$ to you. On the flip side of that coin, you can pay the site/forum back by posting any relevant information you have that may help others in their quest to determine which side or total is likely to cash when the final buzzer sounds.

Some forums offer sports handicapping contests as well. You may find a daily play of the day contest, monthly contest or even season long contest with sports gambling accounts as prizes.

Another solid benefit a posting forum provides is regional information that you may not have otherwise found anywhere else. Let's face it, ESPN and all your sports channels cover the big news, newspapers are old news, and the internet is so huge it can be like hunting for a needle in a haystack when trying to find good regional info not to mention it's time consuming as hell. Regional info allows a guy from Detroit Michigan to come into the forum and give a feel to others how the team is playing, injuries or illnesses maybe not shown on the official injury report as well as other tidbits of info that can be invaluable when factoring variables into handicapping a game.

Lastly, but not least, the camaraderie. Let's face it, if you bet on sports, your part of a passion that many don't understand. Many of us love to play the games, but don't have local buddies that understand our attraction to this euphoric hobby. A betting forum brings together other sports nuts like yourself to one centralized location where you can feel right at home with others that "get it." We've been around the forums for almost 8 years now and as crazy as it may sound, we've made some lifetime friends in doing so. The Internet is amazing, be sure to utilize this great no cost option if you bet on sports!
