The Contrarian system is included in our Pro Membership. Every day we post the most lopsided games in terms of number of bets and percentage of bets. The contrarian betting strategy takes advantage of over-shaded lines and greedy sportsbooks. If a line looks too good to be true, it’s good to bet the other way because it consistently pays to “Bet Against the Public!”

We’ve tracked the contrarian betting strategy since 2003 and as always, we let the results speak for themselves. SportsInsights.com pioneered the use of betting percentage data from online sports books to “Bet Against the Public.” We have over 10 years of data (from 2003 to present) to support the claim that “Fading the Public” is profitable. Read articles showing the results of Betting Against the Public for all major US sports – the NFL, MLB, NBA, College Football, NCAA Basketball, and the NHL. Contrarian plays are released daily by 5:30pm ET, and on weekends by 12:00pm and 5:30pm ET.
