Sports Betting Tips


Are you looking to increase your chances of winning money betting on sports? Here at The Sports Geek our goal is to help you do just that.

On our site you will find sports betting tips and strategies, free sports betting picks, live online sportsbook odds, detailed sportsbook reviews, and lots more that will hopefully help you become a better sports bettor and increase your profits.

Below I will give you a run down on the most popular sections of our website that will help you with your sports betting, and our common goal of beating the bookies or making a profit with our betting.

Sports Betting Picks

The most popular section of our sports betting site is the Free Sports Picks Blog, which is updated daily with free picks. I’ve put together a team of expert sports bettors who are all very qualified to contribute to the site with their betting advice for the night’s action.

I am constantly reviewing the picks the team is putting out on a nightly basis to ensure we have only the highest quality information being posted in our Sports Picks Blog. We have certain team members dedicated to each league, so that they can keep their focus on just one or two sports. This allows each writer to specialize in his sports and hopefully give out picks with a very solid winning percentage.

We try to give out free picks daily year round, but there are some days where we just don’t have any advice to give out (often during the slower sports betting months such as June and July). You can sign up for our email list by clicking on the button at the top of this page to receive every pick we release in the free picks section via email.

I highly recommend you bookmark the Sports Picks Blog and check back daily to read up on all of our sports betting tips and picks.

Sports Betting Strategy

Another very popular section of The Sports Geek is our Sports Betting Strategy section.

We give you basic sports betting tips and strategies for those bettors new to sports betting, but we also have very in-depth sports betting strategy articles written by a once professional sports bettor, Jim, who has made thousands of dollars betting on sports in the past.

If you want to make more money betting on sports this is a section of The Sports Geek that you must spend some time reading through. The basics will help you get started on the right track, and the advanced articles will help you find edges over the sportsbooks and give you the best chance at winning.

Jim didn’t share these professional sports betting strategies and tips for free. I paid him thousands of dollars for this content to contribute to my goal of making this the best sports betting guide on the Internet. I hope you take the time to read through his articles. Here are a few to get you started:

Sports Betting Odds

This section of our website has two purposes. The first is to help beginner sports bettors understand how to read betting odds, including learning about the different types of odds you will see posted by the sportsbooks.

The second is to provide a live odds feed for bettors to compare the odds some of the top sports betting sites are offering. As any experience sports bettor knows, it is extremely important to compare odds and place your wagers using the best odds available to you. This is also referred to as “line shopping”. If you read any of our sports betting strategy articles you will know that this is a must if you want to make money betting on sports.

Online Sports Betting

Online sports betting is a billion dollar industry, and it’s becoming more and more each and every day. I’ve personally reviewed a number of the online sports betting sites so that I could review them and recommend only the best sites out there.

I will say that online sports betting may not be legal where you live, so please check your local laws before placing bets online at these sports betting sites. And I also want to point out that there have been “scam” type sites in the past known to steal money from their bettors, so make sure you stick with recommended betting sites we list here at The Sports Geek.

Lastly with online betting it is easy to get carried away and bet more than you can afford. Always make sure you gamble responsibly. If you have a gambling problem or know someone who does, please get help. Visit Gamblers Anonymous today to learn more about getting help with your sports betting or gambling problem.

Sports Betting in 2015

2015 is here and we are ready for another great year at The Sports Geek. Overall 2014 was a great year for us sports bettors, and we enjoyed the free picks provided by the guys at the blog throughout the year. When fall comes back around we hope for another winning football season from Will, Gino, and Brent. Until then we look for Kyle and Chris look to add to the profits covering baseball, hockey and basketball. We are looking forward to a profitable and enjoyable 2015 with you.


The Sports Geek was founded in 2008 by me, Kevin, and has continued to grow since. It started off as a small site and I had no real big plans for it, but as my passion for sports betting grew the website also grew with it. I’ve had a team of writers helping me give out free picks daily since about 2010 and we’ve had a lot of success with our picks. Because of the abundance of free sports betting information we offer at our site our following has continued to grow.

A lot of the articles written here at were written by me, but I’ve also hired a number of sports betting experts to contribute to the website. Currently our team includes six experts, which you can learn more about on our About Us page.

Our goal is to be the best website on the Internet for free sports betting information and picks, and we are constantly working on finding new ways to improve our site to best fit your needs as a sports bettor. Winning money betting on sports isn’t easy, but our goal is to educate every sports bettor as much as we can to help you in your goal of profiting with your betting.

Latest Tip: Football Betting Tips

Tottenham (2.4) Draw (3.4) Manchester City (3.1)
Its the new big 4 team vs the wannabe big for team. Harry Redknapp has more or less kept the same side whereas Manchester City have pulled out the chequebook again. This is a tricky fixture to call. Man City will have problems getting the new signings all working together. Their pre-season was pretty poor. Its going to be hard for Mancini to get them all working together on day one. After Christmas maybe when the team has gelled I could make a good case for City. This fixture has been kind for Spurs over the years. Its been 2-1 5 times in a row only to have been broken last year 3-0. I’ll go for Spurs here. If they are going to build on last years achievement then this is the type of game they have to win. Its 2.4 at William Hill.

Aston Villa (2) Draw (3.4) West Ham (4.3)
Last week this game had a totally different dimension. With O’Neil leaving, it leaves Villa with no manager. This has pushed the odds out for Villa. They were as low as 1.62 before O’Neil’s departure. Villa have made new signings to its going to be the same team that finished 6th. West Ham are in the rebuilding stage. With Avram Grant at the helm this year they probably won’t be staring relegation in the face like last season. I can see why the odds have gone up on Villa but I am not sure I agree with that. Its the same team but with O’Neil. I think that Villa at even money at naijabet is a pretty good price considering.

Blackburn (3) Draw (3.3) Everton (2.5)
I think that Blackburn will struggle this season. They were fortunate to finish 10th last season and with no new significant signings it will be hard not to get pulled in to the relegation battle. Everton finished strongly last season and are expected to do better than the 8th they finished last season. If they hadn’t has the slow start last season they could well have been in the Champions League. As no team has significantly changed I’ll make my prediction on what would have happened if this game was played at the end of last season. I think a draw. Its also nice its the biggest price on the coupon too. 3.3 at William Hill.

Bolton (2.3) Draw (3.3) Fulham (3.5)
Bolton look like they are going to have a better season this year. Owen Coyle steered them away from relegation last year and has built significantly on his squad. Fulham have a new manager in Mark Hughes who must be kicking himself for taking that job now the Villa job is available. Saying that, Fulham are a decent side and have progressed much over the last 2 years. In terms of betting, this is one of the trickier fixtures to call. I am not too keen on Bolton at 2.3 at home to a decent Fulham side but then again I am not too keen on 3.5 on a Fulham side that won once away from home all season. I’ll plump for the draw again at 3.3 at William Hill

Sunderland (2.25) Draw (3.4) Birmingham (3.6)
What happened to Sunderland last season was a mystery. They started strong but a bad run at the end meant they finished nearer the bottom that the top. They have sold one part of their striking partnership in Kenwyne Jones but still have Darren Bent. He was injured for the England game midweek but looks like he’s going to start. Birmingham over achieved last season I think. I can’t see them doing what they did last season again. Betting wise its a tricky one and any result wouldn’t be too much of a surprise. You can sign up to NaijaBet to place your bet.

Wigan (1.83) Draw (3.6) Blackpool (5)
The first odds on game of the weekend. Who would have thought that Wigan would ever be odds on to anyone in the Premiership? Their opponents are Blackpool though that are 1.29 to get relegated. If Wigan fail to win this they will struggle this year. Blackpool have a few things on their side. They more or less have the same side which came up. Hull came up a couple of seasons ago and started off flying. If they are going to win any games away from home this season this could well be it. I still expect Wigan to win this though but not willing to back it. It’ll be a cold day in hell before I back Wigan at odds on in the Premiership.

Wolverhampton (2.4) Draw (3.3) Stoke (3.3)
Wolves have strengthened their side with new signings Jelle van Damme, Steven Fletcher and Steven Mouyokolo who are all expected to start. Unknown players to me but Jelle van Damme has got to have the coolest name in the Premiership. Kenwyne Jones is Stoke’s big summer signing which could be good for them. They’ve never had an out and out striker relying more on set pieces to get their goals. Betting wise this is another tricky call. I think under 2.5 goals is nailed on but at 1.63 best price at Bet365 it doesn’t seem worth it. I think the draw at 3.3 looks the best bet. I am weary of picking too many draws though after last seasons total lack of draws early on. Its 3.3 at Totesport anyway.

Chelsea (1.18) Draw (7.5) West Brom (21)
Banker of the weekend possibly. I am not too sure myself. Chelsea will more than likely win this but at 1.18 its not a price that I’ll be backing as a single. Last season they had an easy game against Hull and it took a late goal from Drogba to win it. Their pre-season hasn’t been good, most noticeably losing to Manchester United in the Community Shield. If you lose at a short price its much more painful that losing at a big price. I think the Chelsea to win to nil at 1.8 at bluesquare
is a much better bet. The bookie is saying that its 4 times less likely that Chelsea win than it is for them to win to nil. That can’t be right.
