Hey everyone, Im a novice casual sports better, but I do well, always have been better than 50% but I dont take alot of chances for big payoffs... but recently Ive been kind of interested in the, like proper mathamatical side of handicapping... I just bet now on gut feel for the games...

... Does anyone know a good website that has info on like, different standard formulas and such, to learn that side of the handicapping art???

I don't know of a site that will come off thier formulas.  Kinda of trade secerets. 

Start out by looking at power ratings.

I dont know much of it... I was just kind of assuming there was a basic standard thing... then everyone just kind of went off and improved on to make their own

Check out kenpom.com great site for basketball, contains some excellent information on developing your own formulas.

Read Michael Murray's Betting Baseball.

Here is a basic formula:

(Away Team PS+Home Team PA)/2= Away Team Points Scored

(Home Team PS+Away Team PA)/2=Home Team Points Scored

i.e Philadelphia at Seattle

Philadelphia's Away PS= 25 Away PA=20

Seattle's Home PS=18 Home PA=23

Philadelphia's Score= (25+23)/2=(48)/2=24

Seattle's Score= (18+20)/2=(38)/2=19

Philadelphia should win by 5

Here is my "quickie" method for a spread prediction.

(Highest ASM Team -Lowest ASM Team)/2=Projected Spread

ASM= Average Scoring Margin=(PS-PA)

i.e 

Philadelphia's ASM= 25-20= 5 

Seattle's ASM= 18-23=-5

Projected Spread= (5- - 5)/2=(10)/2=5

The projected spread is Philadelphia by 5.

This "quickie" system will not give you a projected score just a spread.

Football Model:

First Step:

Produce the Away/Home Team's OYPPT:

OYPPT= Offense Yards Per Point

Away Team's OYPPT= Away Team's Total Yards For/Away Team's PS

Home Team's OYPPT= Home Team's Total Yards For/Home Team's PS

Second Step

Away Team's Projected Score= Home Team's Total Yards For/Away Team's OYPPT

Home Team's Projected Score=Away Team's Total Yards For/Home Team's OYPPT

Football Model

i.e Cleveland at Pittsburgh

Cleveland's Away PS= 17 Cleveland's Away Total Yards For= 261
Cleveland Away Total Yards Against= 346

Pittsburgh's Home PS=27 Pittsburgh's Home Total Yards For=389
Pittsburgh's Home Total Yards Against= 247

First Step:

Cleveland's Away OYPPT=261/17=15.35 

Pittsburgh's Home  OYPPT=389/27=14.41

Second Step:

Cleveland's Away Projected Score=247/15.35=16 (rounded down .50)

Pittsburgh's Home Projected Score=346/14.41=24 (rounded down .50)

Cleveland 16 Pittsburgh 24 Pittsburgh by 8

ATS Probability:

Away Team's ATS Probability=(Away Team's Spread Wins+Home Team's Spread Losses)/Total Games

Home Team's ATS Probability=(Home Team's Spread Wins+Away Team's ATS Losses)/Total Games

i.e Cleveland at Pittsburgh

Cleveland's Away ATS Wins= 2

Cleveland's Away ATS Losses=3

Pittsburgh's Home ATS Wins= 4

Pittsburgh's Home ATS Losses=2

Cleveland's Away ATS Probability= (2+2)/11=4/11=.36

Pittsburgh's Home ATS Probability=(4+3)/11=7/11=.64

Pittsburgh has a 64% chance to cover the spread. The football model and the ATS probability calculation do not match on the spread. You need to bet with caution.

(Away Team PS+Home Team PA)/2= Away Team Points Scored

(Home Team PS+Away Team PA)/2=Home Team Points Scored

i.e Philadelphia at Seattle

Philadelphia's Away PS= 25 Away PA=20

Seattle's Home PS=18 Home PA=23

Philadelphia's Score= (25+23)/2=(48)/2=24

Seattle's Score= (18+20)/2=(38)/2=19

Philadelphia should win by 5 
 
Here is an adjustment to my model for basketball.
 
LAVG=X
 
Road Team's Offensive Rating= Road Team's PS/X
 
Road Team's Defensive Rating=Road Team's PA/X
 
Home Team's Offensive Rating=Home Team's PS/X
 
Home Team's Defensive Rating= Home Team's PA/X
 
Road Team's Performance Rating= (Road Team's Offensive Rating+Home Team's Defensive Rating)/2
 
Home Team's Performance Rating=(Home Team's Offensive Rating+Road Team's Defensive Rating)/2
 
Road Team's Base Offense=(Road Team's PS+Home Team's PA)/2
 
Home Team's Base Offense=(Home Team's PS+Road Team's PA)/2
 
Road Team's Projected Score= Road Team's Base Offense* Road Team's Performance Rating
 
Home Team's Projected Score=Home Team's Base Offense*Home Team's Performance Rating
 
i.e
 
NBA's League Average=95
 
LA Clippers at Portland
 
LA Clippers PS=97 PA=97
 
Portland PS=105 PA=94
 
LA Clippers' Offensive Rating= (97/95)=1.02
LA Clippers' Defensive Rating=(97/95)=1.02
 
Portland's Offensive Rating=(105/95)=1.10
Portland's Defensive Rating=(94/95)=.99
 
LA Clippers' Performance Rating=(1.02+.99)/2=1.00
Portland's Performance Rating=(1.10+1.02)/2=1.06
 
LA Clippers' Base Offense=(97+94)/2=96
Portland's Base Offense=(105+97)/2=101
 
LA Clippers' Projected Score=96*1.00=96
Portland's Projected Score=101*1.06=107
 
Portland by 11; 206 points

There are thousands of approaches and mostly none of them work.
