Line Shopping Wins More Bets – Daily Report – August 30


Line shopping is and has been a proven effective strategy to win more bets. Our expert handicappers here at Sports Hub will always work to get the best line on a game or event.

Using Line Shopping As a Winning Strategy

As we will see when I run down yesterday’s leaderboard, Sports Hub handicappers are consistently winning and adding money to their bankrolls. How do they do it? Well, each handicapper is different. They have their own unique betting strategies and models that they use. There are a few strategies that are common among the top professional bettors in the world. Line shopping is one.

Fatten Your Bankroll by Line Shopping

If you want to win more bets, you will take the time to shop around for the best line and the best price on your wagers. With the NFL season coming, you would be wise to search for a favorite and get it at -2.5 instead of -3. That half-point difference can give you a win instead of a push. A few of those in a season will add up and fatten your wallet. Keep in mind that Sports Hub’s software continues to develop. In the very near future, our software will be able to determine the best betting line across multiple sportsbooks. Instant line shopping! 

Line Shopping Is Key for Sports Hub Cappers

Want to win $489 on your four MLB bets? Sports Hub expert Ben Miller did last night and he maximized his payout by line shopping. Instead of getting the Rays at -101, he found them at +103. He was also able to find the Pittsburgh Pirates at +130 when most bettors were getting the Buccos at +115. In the end, line shopping put a few extra bucks into Big Ben’s wallet.

Ben nailed all four of his wagers yesterday, but he wasn’t even our top dog. He was just one of five handicappers to win at least $300. We have some familiar faces in our top-5 and even a new guy.

Here’s a look at yesterday’s leaderboard.

Knup Sports Had a Big Day Yesterday!
  • Knup Sports: It was a huge day for Knup Sports. In fact, it’s been a huge month for these guys. Yesterday, Knup Sports went 9-3 on 12 MLB wagers. They pocketed $605 to top the board. That raises their 30-day total to $2726! 
  • Sports Hub stud: As mentioned, our own Big Ben Miller went 4-0 and won $489. Line shopping is just one of many strategies employed by this Sports Hub expert. Ben is now our No. 1 MLB handicapper and he’s up $2413 over the last 30 days. Watch out for Ben this football season. He already has an NFL Week 1 pick in the system.
  • Familiar face: We’ve had SWJ Sports here before. In fact, it was just yesterday that SWJ Sports made the daily report for their efforts on Monday. Well, they’re back again with a perfect 3-0 day for $300. That’s 7-0 and $710 over the last two days.
  • Veteran goes 3-0: Kyle Parker, a 25-year veteran of the sports betting industry, went 3-0 on three MLB picks and scored $300. You don’t get to have success over two-plus decades in this industry without line shopping.

Baseball and Soccer Dominate Today’s Schedule

It’s kind of the calm before the storm. It’s what many in Florida experienced as Hurricane Idalia hit the Gulf Coast earlier this morning. It’s a Wednesday in late August. The MLB season is chugging along as it heads into its final full month of the regular season. Baseball and soccer dominate today’s schedule, but we head into a weekend where we will be absolutely giddy! It’s the first full weekend of college football.

As we wait, here is what’s on the schedule today.

  1. MLS mania: It’s about as full a schedule as you can get with 13 MLS matches scheduled for tonight. The big one, of course, is in Nashville where Lionel Messi and his Inter Miami CF take on Nashville SC. Messi and Miami just recently defeated Nashville to win the Leagues Cup title.
  1. More MLB: It’s Wednesday in MLB and that means all 30 teams are playing. It starts with afternoon baseball and the Phillies, who you will see in the trending section below, will kick off the day at home against the Angels. The Dodgers have crushed the DBacks in two straight games. In the final game tonight, LA will go for the series sweep.
  2. US Open tennis: The US Open continues. Top-seeded Carlos Alcaraz advanced yesterday. No. 2 seed Novack Djokovic takes on Bernabe Zapata Miralles of Spain today. On the women’s side, No. 1 Iga Swiatek faces unranked Daria Saville of Australia.
  3. Hoops: There were 8 games in the FIBA World Cup today. By the time you read this, all 8 will be completed. Team USA will advance to the second round having finished 3-0 in Group C. Second round action will begin Sept. 1.

Cuts, Dingers and Hoops Top Trending Sports

You have got to keep track of trending sports. Line shopping is a strategy that will win you more bets. Having the best information gives you another advantage over the competition and can certainly be the difference in winning a few more bets too. Keep track of these trends that I bring to you every day. It’ll pay off in the end.

Here’s what’s happening in the sports world.

  • Waivers: It was cut down day in the NFL as all 32 teams had to trim their active rosters to 53 players. Arizona cut veteran QB Colt McCoy and New England waived all of its quarterbacks except for starter Mac Jones. It was a similar situation in MLB where the Angels waived P Lucas Giolito, who the team had just acquired at the trade deadline. The Yankees waived Josh Donaldson who was having his worst season as a pro.
  • So close, but no no-no: Giants P Alex Cobb had a no-hitter through 8.2 innings. Just one more out, that’s all he needed. Then, Spencer Steer doubled to end the no-hit bid. The Giants would win the game 6-1. Line shopping could have earned you an extra $10 to $50 on San Francisco. Just sayin’. 
  • Phillies dingers: The Phillies crushed five more home runs in last night’s 12-7 victory over the Angels. With those five dingers, the Phillies have tied the 2020 Los Angeles Dodgers for the most home runs in August with 57. Two days left!
  • Ant & Team USA: Anthony Edwards has been leading Team USA in the FIBA World Cup tournament. With a 110-62 win over Jordan early this morning, Team USA is now 3-0 with three huge wins. The Americans are the favorite to capture the Cup.
  • The night before: Just in case you didn’t realize, tomorrow night you will be able to watch college football! Visit Sports Hub’s weekly picks pages for the very best inside information in the industry. And don’t forget, line shopping will pay off!
