The extended four-day Thanksgiving Holiday weekend is a great time for friends and family to gather together in celebration of the official start of the holiday season. More importantly, it is also the biggest weekend of the year for sports betting.
As a private bookie trying to successfully run and manage your own independent sportsbook, now is the time to start preparing for all the action coming down the pike next week. It all starts with the Pay Per Head service you currently have in place to help make this Thanksgiving weekend the best ever from a profit standpoint. If you do not have the right online sports betting software provider as a valued business partner, you are making things far more difficult then they have to be.
Whether you are fairly new to the bookmaking business or a veteran bookie with a solid betting clientele, you already know just how important the right PPH service can be to your current and long-term profit picture. If things are running smoothly, then the next step is to put your efforts into marketing the Thanksgiving sports betting slate to both current and prospective customers.
Analyzing your current PPH provider
If you have been having issues with your online sports betting software solutions provider, now may be the time to switch PPH services in order to quickly get things back on track. Too many times a private bookie feels stuck with the price per shop they have been using in the past. There are a myriad of quality Pay Per Head sites in today’s marketplace that would be willing to bend over backwards for your bookie business. Many will assign a designated account manager to walk you through the changeover process. You can be up and running in no time in what will appear like a seamless transition to your existing sports betting customer base.
Once you do have your operational affairs in order with the right price per head shop in place, it is time to capitalize on this business relationship to make the most out of all the action on the board over the upcoming holiday.
The Thanksgiving weekend is highlighted by all the rivalry games in college football. This marks the end of the regular season in advance of the various conference championships and the start of an extended postseason bowl run from mid-December right through the College Football Playoff Championship on Monday, Jan. 7. Traditional rivalries have a way of creating quite a bit of interest in most of the games on next weekend’s slate, which in turn, can create quite a bit of betting action.
When it comes to Thanksgiving Day, the betting action starts early with the first of two traditional NFL matchups. All three of the NFL games on next Thursday’s slate should attract some heavy betting volume as key division matchups. You also have Dallas (against Washington) and New Orleans (against Atlanta) in action as two of the most popular NFL betting teams.
As an added bonus this year, you have the head-to-head matchup between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson on Friday’s betting board. This is where your Pay Per Head site can help you make the most of this unique betting event with a full set of betting props.
Throughout the four-day holiday, you have betting action in the NBA and NHL sprinkled in along with some exciting matchups in the new college basketball season. All of the top teams in the nation will be showcased in various holiday tournaments starting with a full slate of betting action on Thanksgiving Day.
For football fans north of the boarder, the weekend is capped off with the annual Grey Cup Championship Game in the CFL on Sunday, Nov. 25 at 6 p.m.
