The Michigan Legislature passed an online sports betting bill Wednesday as part of a major gambling package that will permit eligible visitors and residents to not only wager on their favorite sports teams, but also play digital blackjack, slot machines and poker. Michigan is the 11th state to pass a sports betting bill this year and just the second to pass an online casino bill in , after West Virginia.
Gretchen Whitmer still technically needs to sign the bills into law before sports betting is legalized. But lawmakers in the Michigan Senate and House of Representatives approved the legislation with more than enough support to override a veto, meaning there is effectively nothing she could do to stop sports wagering. Regulators will need to finalize betting rules and approve operators before wagering can begin, but Michigan is poised to take bets by fall , and could take its first bet as early as March.
It also caps an impressive rebirth for the legislation about a year after legal online gambling seemed like an impossibility. Rick Snyder. Snyder, a Republican, shocked lawmakers when he vetoed the bills just days before leaving office. New lawmakers, along with a new governor in Whitmer, took office in January , forcing the legislation back to square one. Brandt Iden, Sen. Curtis Hertel and other gaming backers designed a new package of bills in , this one containing sports wagering.
Whitmer, as well as pockets of the legislature, remained skeptical: like Snyder, Whitmer feared the new online gaming bills could cannibalize state revenues, which channel hundreds of millions of dollars annually to state education funds. After months of negotiations, stakeholders agreed to a compromise measure which, most notably, increased iGaming taxes and decreased sports betting taxes.
For Michigan bettors, these months of negotiations in Lansing mean eligible bettors will be able to place a wager from anywhere in the state. The digital component will likely make up the brunt of the revenues, especially for the Native American casinos, most of which are located in rural areas. The wide range of potential licenses will benefit not just the industry but individual bettors. Though not every Native American tribe is expected to open an online or retail sportsbook in the near future, there should still be plenty of mobile options.
The competition between sportsbooks nurtures the best environment for customers and allows multiple technology providers, operators and stakeholders to enter the market. Michigan sports betting comes after, and partially due to, new sports betting options in the Midwest. Illinois, Iowa and Indiana legalized sports betting this year, with Iowa and Indiana taking retail and online sports bets currently.
Illinois, which is expected to be the highest-grossing market in the region and one of the most lucrative in the country, is expected to take its first bet sometime next year. Iden pointed to his own string of bets placed in Indiana as part of his broader argument supporting the legislation. Why should any Michigan resident, Iden told his colleagues ahead of key votes for the bills, cross state lines to place bets, visit casinos or spend money on food and lodging when they could do it in their own state?
You've just got to be comfortable with having your investment tied up for multiple months. Every game of the NBA Finals will have a point spread, money line, and total posted as well, and sometimes, depending on what side a bettor may prefer favorite or underdog , going the game-by-game route does make more sense.
But other things have to be considered as well like whether or not said bettor already has a future wager or two in their pocket that's still live on one of the two teams remaining. That leaves potential for bettors to get their preferred team at an even better price should they fall in Game 1, or perhaps start the series on the road and lose one or two of the first two games.
There are always plenty of mitigating factors to consider. What's interesting about the dynamic of NCAA Tournament basketball odds is the quick turnaround for teams that continue to win, as well as the sheer volume of games on those first few days of the tournament. College basketball betting lines are poured over night and day leading up to the tournament, and if you aren't working on the next day's action while the current day's games are being played, you're generally falling behind as a handicapper.
Not only are college basketball lines readily available anywhere and everywhere sports bettors can plop down action during the tournament, but the college basketball point spreads that oddsmakers put out tend to be extremely sharp numbers that can be tough to beat. Oddsmakers have a full season of data to base their numbers off of, and with a full season of knowing the general perception of particular teams in the market as well, and the nature of upsets happening in the NCAA Tournament each year, success from a bettor's standpoint during March Madness can be tough.
At that stage the level of competition is fairly even respective of the particular matchup, so money lines do get more love in post-season play. The point spread is always going to be the first starting point for basketball bettors as even if it's not bet on, it's a number that can be used somewhat as a gauge for what bettors can expect to see. With home court and superstar talent being so influential in determining outcomes of basketball games at any level, spreads are a critical big piece in formulating the potential puzzle of a particular game and they are the number everyone looks to beat first.
Totals bettors tend to prefer totals over spreads for a variety of reasons, and given the volatility in how many points are scored in a given contest, it can be argued that the numbers oddsmakers put out here are generally more beatable from a betting perspective. However, you still need a lot to go right no matter what side you're on for a total in a particular game, and as bettors that prefer 'over' wagers, a single low-scoring quarter early on can all but kill your wager.
That's the chance you have to be willing to take though as it is gambling after all. If you are just interested in picking the outright winner of a basketball game, the money line is for you, although the price can be pretty steep and not worthy of a bet in big mismatch type contests. Later on in the year, particularly in the later rounds of the NBA playoffs or NCAA tournament, money line bets can be the better option with point spreads in the single possession range -1, -2, -3 etc , and going the money line route does allow the bettor a bit more margin of error relative to the few extra cents they'll have to lay.
Betting basketball parlays is all up to the bettors per usual, as you can parlay point spreads with other ones, or with totals, or incorporate some money line plays as well. One of the better parlay strategies for basketball is to use a couple of money line favorites parlayed together to reduce their overall price, and it's a popular method that oddsmakers will see daily when they assess the action they've booked.
Prop bets are otherwise known as proposition bets and in basketball wagering they can cover a wide variety of categories. One of the most popular forms of prop betting in basketball is individual stat lines for specific players as things like over-unders on total points scored by a player, total assists, total rebounds, and even combinations of specific stats for guys exist as well.
For bettors that have extensive history in the fantasy basketball realm, it may be these prop bets that become highly attractive, and potentially highly lucrative to you if you are successful in that field. Teasers function like parlays though in the fact that you've got to tease at least two outcomes and both selections have to win in order for the ticket to cash.
Totals can also be teased up or down too depending on what the bettor prefers. With the nature of basketball being a sport where points are scored at a much higher rate then any other sport, in-game wagering has plenty of growth potential, and plenty of fans in the betting world already. Scoring runs are the name of the game in a basketball contest, and depending on the team you like for a contest, a scoring run for or against them presents some interesting live betting opportunities.
If the team you're looking to back gives up a scoring run, all of a sudden the point spread you are offered in live betting becomes much more favorable, especially if it's still relatively early in the contest and your team has plenty of time to come back. A team like the Dallas Mavericks could have entered the game as -3 favorites, but find themselves trailing by 6 or 7 points after the first quarter.
They'll still have three quarters to make up for the slow start and instead of laying a pregame ML price or the -3 points pregame, you've now got much better prices, albeit losing the game at the time. Another scenario involves the team you've already backed going on a run to establish a big lead which then presents what's known as a potential 'middle' opportunity. Then you'd hope that Dallas ultimately wins the game by points and you'd win both wagers.
If there is ever one particular sport made for live and in-game wagering, basketball might be it.
