1. Set max betting limits on Super Bowl 53 teams

Updated Super Bowl 53 odds are out.

Although the top four lowest odds teams: New Orleans Saints, Kansas City Chiefs, New England Patriots, and L.A. Rams are on a bye, they could garner plenty of betting action.

Make sure max betting limits are set on all 4 teams that won’t play this weekend.

Also, bookies must make sure betting limits are set on the 8 teams that do play this weekend. Those teams include:

  • Chicago Bears
  • Baltimore Ravens
  • Los Angeles Chargers
  • Indianapolis Colts
  • Seattle Seahawks
  • Philadelphia Eagles
  • Houston Texans
  • Dallas Cowboys.

2. Set schedule limit overrides on possible Super Bowl 53 teams playing this weekend from Friday afternoon to Monday afternoon

Pay per head agents can’t forget that two wildcard games take place on Saturday and two wildcard games take place on Sunday. Make sure to set override limits early.

That’s important because odds on wildcard teams to win the Super Bowl, outside of the Chicago Bears, are at double-digits. The Colts offer excellent odds at +3000 while the defending Super Bowl champion Eagles offer +3300 odds.

If a dog gets ahead of a favorite, for example the Eagles are up by 14 points over the Bears, some players might try to jump on the Eagles’ 33 to 1 odds.

Don’t let them.

3. Set max betting limits on all NFL Wildcard game moneylines

Chalk bettors could try to pound the Bears over the Eagles at -250. Other chalk bettors could take advantage of great moneyline odds on teams like Baltimore, Houston, and Dallas.

Dog bettors will try to make as much money as they can on the Colts, Seahawks, and Chargers, all of whom have real shots of beating their opponents straight up.

4. Use the layoff account on all NFL Wildcard games

Any NFL team that makes the postseason deserves to be there. No NFL team gets lucky and makes the playoffs. It’s too difficult to win the NFL for that to happen.

Players have also had an entire 17-week season to study NFL teams. They know how to bet every team against the spread.

Use the layoff account on every NFL Wildcard game. If online bookies don’t do this, they could lose money.

Now that you have all the information you need, put it into practice. Set your sportsbook up now before your players get ahead of you.

Then, start promoting the weekend and bringing in your players. Make more money with the proper pay per head tools. Sign up for PayPerHead’s Prime Package now and get a 3 week trial for just $3 per head!
