Myth of Sports Betting: The “Fix”


The”Fix”

The”fix” is a widespread belief among amateur bettors. Every now and accusations of a repair make it into esteemed books and magazines.

I don’t believe that NFL games are mended and here’s why. First, over the past 25 years, I have known a number of handicappers, such as myself, who have won money betting the NFL. If the games weren’t fair, we couldn’t have won. Handicapping simply couldn’t conquer players who were shaving or dumping things. In order to fix a game, two events would need to occur. The fixer would have to get significant players involved, and also be in a position to wager enough to overcome the payments he’s made to the players that are crooked.

Over the previous 15 decades, NFL salaries have skyrocketed. Important players, who’d need to be in on the fix for it to operate, make well into the millions each season. They create more from endorsements and ads. It would cost a great deal of money to get to these players. And you may never correct a match with one player alone; a few would need to bought.

The fixer will then have to bet enough on the game to turn a profit on the deal. To be able to bet this big he would have to use hundreds or thousands of bookmakers.

And bookmakers would certainly notice when they saw this tidal wave of money coming in on a single team. As the money came from all over the nation, bookmakers would be able to lay off the cash with other bookmakers. When enormous money comes in from seemingly nowhere it is known as unnatural cash, and bookmakers are almost always suspicious about it. With multiple millions suddenly coming in, suspicion would be rampant.

When bookmakers see unnatural cash, they just take games off the board until they know the reason for this. And there is a reasonable explanation. Sometimes it’s an accident which comes to light. Sometimes the team is liked by in betting a big name.

Bookmakers, who depend on true handicapping, know that the only way they can survive is for NFL games to be honest. Coups, such as the ones who have tarnished school basketball from time to time, could wipe them out. Bookmakers are the first to turn.

Believers in fixes also point to referees as potential culprits. Since referees make far less cash than gamers and exert great control over games, this may be feasible except for two items.

First, the NFL does a really close background check to possible referees. Before anyone is allowed to ref NFL games, a lot of solid sources have to think about him bribe-proof.

Secondly, sources in Las Vegas keep documents on which referees work which matches and correlate the information with any big money that comes in on a game. If any suspicious correlation between a particular ref and unnatural money turned upward, it would be reported immediately to the NFL.

Don’t use the fix as an excuse. Rather, get to work in your own handicapping.
