Many bettors flock to sportsbooks that offer generous sign up bonuses. Astute bettors want more though. A savvy bettor wants reduced vig.
What is reduced vig you ask? (aka: reduced vigorish/reduced juice) This merely means that your betting at reduced odds. While most online sportsbooks offer the traditional -110 to win $100, some offer reduce vig of -105 to win $100.
While most think a nickel is hardly worth clamoring over, just the opposite is true. Let's take a look at an example of some reduced vig bets:
Packers +3 -105
Vikings -3 -105
If your betting $10.50 to win $10.00 your saving .50 off the traditional $11 to win $10. It's really no big deal but hey, fifty cents is fifty cents.
Now let's say your a buck bettor ($100) and your laying $105 to win $100. Your saving $5 in risked money here that you could in essence be using to buy yourself a sandwich tomorrow at work or even better, tack it on to the $105 your laying which will increase your payout to $104.78!
Where reduced vig REALLY comes in huge is if your a big bettor. If your a dime bettor and laying $1050 to win $1000, your saving $50 bucks a pop. Lets' say you make 10 bets over the course of the weekend. Your saying $50 x 10 = $500. Needless to say, if your a dime bettor you can't afford not to be betting at reduced odds.
Furthermore, betting at reduced vig -105 instead of -110 allows you to lower your break-even point from 52.38% down to 51.22%.
Fellas! Shop for the best price! You go to the store and compare loaves of bread to try to save a measley quarter. Why not shop for the best price on your bets? You'll save a ton!
