Sportsbooks today will offer different ways to get you to sign up. Some of the newer sportsbooks promise enormous bonuses to get you into the door sometimes offering as much as 150-200%. New clients will scour to these types of offerings with the lure of free extra money without thinking it out. Many of those bonuses come with extensive rollover plans that take advantage of gamblers with little to no discipline.
There is a better way to make money and not get caught up in the hype of an new sportsbook that could fold by giving away too many bonuses early before attracting a huge client base. It’s called reduced juice and it has been something that 5Dimes has been offering for a very long time.
5Dimes is one of the oldest and most respected sportsbooks in the business. Their reputation is second to none and it is often the home of professional bettors as they realize the advantage of reduced juice. When you consider that during a calendar year hundreds or even thousands of wagers are placed, the savings with reduced juice can really add up.
The industry standard for juice on a wager requires a player to normally risk $110 for every $100 they would want to win. However, 5Dimes crushed the standard and blazed a path that other books would never be able to duplicate.
5Dimes players can bet reduced juice on NFL, NCAA football, Canadian Football, NBA, NCAA basketball, WNBA, MLB, NHL, grand slam tennis, PGA golf, boxing, MMA, and special events.
5Dimes Reduced Juice offerings on football and basketball include 10-cent moneylines, 10-cent sides and 10-cent totals (-105 pricing). When wagering at -105 odds you are wagering $105 to win $100. This equals a discount of 50% when compared to standard -110 odds.
That discount is huge and could be the difference in hundreds, maybe even thousands of dollars over time. The big bonus may look attractive, but the real way to make money with perks at a sportsbook is to take reduced juice.
