We have some more NFL betting strategies to give you an edge over sportsbooks. These NFL betting ideas will give you an upper-hand when taking on the bookies.

Check out our previous NFL betting strategy articles here!

So, what our ZCode System’s NFL betting strategies v 2.0?

1. Don’t bet on every game

One of the big issues we find with losing bettors is they wager on every NFL game during the week. This is a way to lose money and to prevent yourself from capitalizing on certain games.

It is often said that bettors should not wager on every game possible. Yet, plenty of bettors think they can outsmart the bookies by placing a bet on all the NFL games on a Sunday.

Do your homework and pick specific games. Once you have narrowed down your games, figure out which bet you want to make. Is it moneyline, total points, or something else? Your research should help you figure out the bet you want to make and how much you want to wager.

The key here is not to force a bet. If there is only one game that looks appealing and you have an edge with, then that is the only game you should wager on. Don’t bet on four games just to bet. Find an edge and make your bet. If you only find one quality bet, make it.

2. Shop around

Do you want to make money on NFL betting in 2019? Then don’t be afraid to shop around. Use an odds betting website that collates odds from various sportsbooks. This gives you the chance to shop around and find the best odds for the game you want to wager on.

So, once you have determined which game you want to bet on and the wager you would like to make, shop around for the best odds before placing it.

3. Keep your emotions in check

This goes beyond betting on your favorite team and letting your biases get the best of you. Losses happen and they shouldn’t affect the way you bet. Stick with your strategy and don’t let one or two losses make you change it.

Now, if you are constantly losing game after game, week after week, then maybe your strategy doesn’t work and the tipsters you use are poor.

When you feel your emotions getting the best of you, take a break, recharge your batteries, and reflect on the NFL games you are betting on. One correct decision can change everything for you.

Finally, take your betting seriously and never mix sports betting with alcohol. If you want sports betting to be your job, full-time or part-time, then treat it like you would when going to the office.

When you go to Las Vegas, casinos are happy to give away free drinks. Why? Because people make bad financial decisions when drinking. Stay sober and aware of what your betting on.

English Premier League predictions August 17-19: Manchester City seek big win against Tottenham Hotspur

The English Premier League marches into matchday 2 of the season. Two big matches are on tap this weekend with both featuring one of the Manchester clubs.


The Premier League title cannot be won in the opening weeks of the season, but it certainly can be lost. Let us look at three big matches taking place in England this weekend.

Saturday, August 17

Manchester City vs. Tottenham Hotspur

Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur meet in one of the biggest matches of the Premier League’s early stages. Both teams have their eyes on the Premier League title, but Spurs are a long shot to win the championship compared to Manchester City.

Manchester City have won five of their last six matches they have played against Tottenham Hotspur. Mauricio Pochettino’s team’s only win over Manchester City came in the Champions League last season at home in London.

Spurs will be without midfielder Dele Alli due to injury and striker Heung Min-Son due to suspension. The subtraction of the two attackers from Tottenham Hotspur’s ability to challenge Manchester City in the final third with hurt them. Can they upset Manchester City?

The Cityzens should get the home win by a one-goal margin.

Winner: Manchester City

Southampton vs. Liverpool

Liverpool are fresh off of their UEFA Super Cup victory on Wednesday night over Chelsea. The Reds could suffer from fatigue at Southampton.

The Saints lost last weekend to Burnley away, 3-0. It was a result that went against the run of play for the most part.

Last season, Liverpool outscored Southampton 6-1 over the course of two matches. At Southampton, Liverpool had to come from behind to defeat the Saints, 3-1. Liverpool needed two goals in the final 10 minutes to pick up the win.

Liverpool’s biggest issue will be fatigue. Still, Jurgen Klopp has plenty of attacking talent to defeat Southampton away. The Reds are bookies’ second-favorite to win the Premier League title. A poor result could prevent Liverpool from challenging Manchester City.

Liverpool will be without goalkeeper Alisson Becker due to a calf injury.

Winner: Liverpool

Monday, August 19

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Manchester United

Monday night sees Wolverhampton Wanderers take on Manchester United at Molineaux. Wolves clashed with Manchester United three times last season winning twice and drawing in the third match.

Both matches they played last season at Molineaux ended in 2-1 scorelines. Although Manchester United are favored, Wolverhampton Wanderers shouldn’t be taken lightly. Wolves took four points from six possible in the Premier League last term.

Manchester United won 4-0 last weekend against Chelsea. However, that scoreline was flattering. Their match on Monday night will show us just how good Manchester United truly are. Expect the two sides to finish in a score draw.

Result: Draw

MLB Predictions August 16-18: Several key games highlight weekend action

The final quarter of the MLB season is upon us and the pennant races are heating up. First-place teams battle in both leagues with the Yankees/Indians and Dodgers/Braves headlining weekend play.

Cleveland Indians versus New York Yankees

AL Central leading Indians head to New York to take on the AL East leading Yankees . The Yankees come in “average up” versus “burning hot” and the Indians hold a +27 to +25 edge on the Power Ranking Indicator. Both teams have been quite stable according to the Team Volatility Oscillator, so consider their favorite/underdog status before betting. The teams are trending on opposite sides of the line on the Totals Predictor, but there is a slight lean to better the “under”. Of the scheduled starting pitchers for Cleveland, Zach Plesac is the more profitable bet at +683 on the Pitcher Profit Oscillator, while Domingo German is at +768 for the Yankees. This is a battle that could go either way, but give a slight edge to the Yankees at home for a series win.

Los Angeles Dodgers versus Atlanta Braves

The top two teams in the NL face off in this weekend series. The Dodgers are “burning hot”, having won eight of their last ten. The Braves are “average up” having gone 5-5 over their last ten. Los Angeles holds a +28 to +20 advantage on the Power Ranking Indicator.  The Dodgers are also among the most stable teams in the league at +38 on the Team Volatility Oscillator. Best to avoid the over/under in this series as the teams are trending on opposite sides of the line. Clayton Kershaw and Hyun-Jin Ryu are excellent bets for the Dodgers this weekend, while Mike Soroka for the Braves has a nearly +2000 advantage of Kenta Maeda in Friday’s game. Look for the Dodgers to earn a road series win, two games to one.

San Diego Padres versus Philadelphia Phillies

Two fourth-place teams square off in Philadelphia as the Phillies take on the Padres. San Diego is “average” on the Team Strength Oscillator having won five of their last ten. They hold a +10 to +9 edge on the Power Ranking Indicator over an “ice cold down” Phillies team that is 3-7 over their last ten. Philadelphia has been a much more stable team, consistently performing as their favorite/underdog status indicates. Jason Vargas is the most profitable of the Phillies pitchers this weekend at +1831, while his counterpart Joey Lucchesi is the worst at -933. Look for the Phillies to take care of home field and get back on track with a series win.

Houston Astros versus Oakland A’s

In this AL West battle, the first-place Astros head to Oakland to face the second-place A’s. The Astors are “burning hot down” with an 8-2 mark over their last ten. They have a +29 to +21 edge on the Power Ranking Indicator. Oakland is 6-4 over their last ten and “average” status. The Astros are extremely consistently performing according to their favorite/underdog status. If considering the over/under, the Totals Predictor is leaning towards the under. Zach Greinke and Gerrit Cole are extremely profitable and solid bets for the Astros  this weekend. The A’s should give the Astros a strong battle, but expect Houston to take two of three games on the road to widen their divisional lead.

San Francisco Giants versus Arizona Diamondbacks

Two NL West teams battle to stay in wild card contention. The Giants are 4-6 over their last ten game and “ice cold up” on the Team Strength Oscillator. The Diamondbacks are 6-4 over their last ten and “average down” status. Arizona holds a slim edge of +14 to +12 on the Power Ranking Indicator. Best to avoid the “over/under” in this series since the teams are playing in games trending on opposite sides of the line. The worst bet for the weekend is the Giants on Friday as scheduled starter Jeff Samardzija is -3761 on the Pitcher Profit Oscillator.  Arizona is under .500 at home and the Giants are above .500 on the road. I expect a road series win, two game to one, for the Giants.
