It has been a good year for private bookies all across the nation as interest in betting on sports is at an all-time high. With more and more land-based sportsbooks popping up in states such as New Jersey, Delaware, Mississippi and most recently Pennsylvania, more and more sports fans are starting to take an active interest in betting on their favorite teams.
With the help of your Pay Per Head online sports betting software provider, you can build out your holiday betting board with enough action to more than meet your current and potential customer’s needs. Not only do people have some extra cash on hand as part of the holiday gift giving season, they also have some extra time on their hands with an added break from work.
This has created the perfect scenario for any private bookie looking to capitalize on the explosive growth of sports betting across all 50 states.
Whether you recently got into the game with your own online bookie business or you have been successfully running and managing your own independent sportsbook for quite some time, everyone knows just how lucrative the final few days of the sports calendar year can be.
It all starts on Christmas Day with a five-game slate of featured showdowns in the NBA.
This is one of the most popular days of the year during the NBA regular season where even non-basketball bettors will be looking to place some money on the games.
By expanding your betting board with additional betting options such as:
- First half/second half spreads
- Moneyline odds
- Full set of game props
You are bound to see a spike in your overall NBA action for the day. The special Christmas schedule should also help to spike interest in betting the NBA over the entire holiday season.
This year’s college football bowl season got underway earlier in December, but the time frame from right after Christmas right through New Year’s Day is when the majority of the betting action will come in. As an added bonus for bookies this season, the two semifinal showdowns in the College Football Playoff takes place on Saturday, Dec. 29 ahead of the traditional full slate of action on New Year’s Day.
This split in the schedule expands your opportunity to take in some additional bets on each day’s games. Once again, you need to work closely with your price per head shop to ensure that you are maximizing your betting board with every online option for betting on all of this season’s bowl games.
Another scheduling bonus for 2018 is the final Sunday of NFL regular season games falling right between Saturday’s CFP match-ups and New Year’s Day bowl schedule.
All 32 NFL teams will be in action that day with more than a few games still carrying playoff implications. Those games have been stacked into late Sunday afternoon’s lineup with one final Sunday night game for a playoff spot in the AFC.
Sprinkled in the mix over the upcoming holidays are some key match-ups in the NHL starting the Thursday after Christmas right through the weekend all the way to New Year’s Day. Sport bettors love national games and the recent addition of ESPN+ broadcasting some of the biggest NHL match-ups should translate to increased interest in hockey from bettors looking for something else to focus their energy on.
If that was not enough, the final round of non-conference play in college basketball offers up some great games over the final weekend of the year. This can be the perfect complement to everything else going on during a very busy and potentially very prosperous time for your private bookie business.
