Then you better start shopping for the best price in order to maximize your payoff come early January.

We’ve mentioned before that one of the keys to turning a profit betting sports over the long haul is the ability to lock in wagers at the fattest prices.

Take note of the wide range of odds in regards to Oklahoma, who is posted as low as +1000 and as high as +2000. For a $100 wager, that’s an extra thousand bucks you’d be making backing the Sooners just because you spent the time to shop for the best price.
