If you are a contrarian sports bettor or simply someone who is interested in beating the closing number as consistently as possible, then Sports Insights’ live odds software is worth checking out.

Sports Insights is a real-time sports betting information provider that offers users information on public betting trends, odds, weather and injury reports and numerous other features.

The software, which collects real-time data from more than 25 sportsbooks both offshore and in Las Vegas, provides users with the ability to find the best line at any given time, while also displaying the public betting percentages for each game. Sports Insights provides public betting percentages on sides, totals, parlays and money lines.

The listed sportsbooks can be arranged and ordered to meet your own needs, which is particularly helpful if you belong to or use several different offshores or Las Vegas books. When a line at a sportsbook changes, it will appear in red, which allows you to then analyze the betting market to find out which way the lines might be headed.

Some sportsbooks are quicker than others when it comes to updating their lines. In this regard, seeing a line move at one sportsbook gives you plenty of time to place a bet at another book, ensuring that you get the best number available.

Getting the best number, even if it is only a half-point or a point, can add up over time. And if you are getting the best of a number consistently, you are far more likely to be a long-term winner.

To illustrate what has been mentioned above, let’s use Thursday’s South Florida-Pittsburgh game as an example. Currently, 82 percent of the public is betting on USF, who most sportsbooks list as a 2.5-point favorite. Fifty-three percent of the public is betting the over 52.

If you were hoping to bet on South Florida, the Sports Insights live odds screen reveals that Pinnacle and BetUS currently offer the best number. Both have USF listed as a 1.5-point favorite. 5Dimes has USF -2, Sportsbook has USF listed as 2.5-point favorites and Bodog has the Bulls listed as 3-point favorites.

Whether you want to bet on South Florida or Pittsburgh, this information is valuable, as you can easily get the best number available regardless of which side you want to bet on.

For those who don’t have an interest in studying a live odds screen, Sports Insights makes life easier for you by providing smart money formulas, which you can receive on-screen, by e-mail or by text message.

The Sports Insights team also has several profitable long-term betting systems, broken down by various categories, some of which focus on a contrarian approach, like the “square plays” feature.

While the live odds screen is the most useful offering, several other throw-ins — including staff articles, customizable updates, alerts, etc. — make the Sports Insights software a must-have for any serious sports bettor.

There are three packages ranging in price from $15/month (basic) to $199/month (premium pro). To check out what Sports Insights has to offer, or to try out a 7-day free trial, visit their website at
