Is sports betting software a scam? Well, the answer is: yes, and no. To explain that answer, let’s investigate in a bit more detail what sports betting software actually is.
There are generally two types of sports betting software that you can buy online: the first is the “bot” or “robot” type which will supposedly place bets automatically for you at several online sportsbooks, somehow choosing the best bets available or learning over time which teams are most successful.
Sometimes program makers even claim that their sports betting software can “hack” or penetrate the sportsbook giving you unfair access to bigger payouts. Of course, any such claims are entirely false and are made to mislead you. Plus, if they were true, using the software would probably be illegal and could land you in hot water, so definitely avoid.
Bots that learn and make bets on your behalf should generally be avoided too, simply because the accuracy of any learning and predictions will be 토토 questionable. If sports betting software really had got to the point where it was so advanced it could correctly predict who would win, sports betting would become obsolete because we’d all know the outcome.
Plus, think of it this way – if you had a machine that would print money, would you sell it? Of course not. So, what sort of sports betting software IS good, and is useful for your betting career? There are two kinds which can help.
Firstly, historical analysis software. These are programs which you can enter your bets into, and they will analyse them and extract any patterns or useful statistics for you to take note of. Some programs will fetch lists of completed bets and the outcomes from sportsbooks websites and compare your bet history against them, showing how well you did. You may also be able to place imaginary bets against the history database to test your theories.
Secondly, there are sports betting software programs which act as a layer on top of an online sportsbook, such as Betfair. They offer enhanced interfaces with real time data display, graphs and up to the minute predictions based on historical trend data. This isn’t the same as software that claims to “learn” – these programs are simply looking at what happened in the past, and projecting the same data into the future.
These two types of betting software assistants can be very useful to give you more information about your betting habits, and about the current betting market. Used properly, they may help to give you an extra edge, but in my experience, only the historical analysis programs are worth using, if only to measure your progress across seasons so you can see how you’re improving as time goes on.
