Find out more about how to line shop.

What is Line Shopping?

Line shopping is a term we use that refers to comparing the lines or odds of different sportsbooks in an effort to find the best price. This is no different from shopping for everyday items. If for example, you were looking to buy a new car, we're sure you would do your homework and shop for the best price at several locations. Betting a line is no different; your goal is to get the best price possible.

Can Anyone Line Shop?

Absolutely, everyone has the ability to line shop. But in order to do so, we recommend signing up for as many sportsbooks as possible. The more sportsbooks you have, the greater the opportunity for finding advantageous lines.

You can line shop for any type of line possible.

  • Point spreads
  • Totals
  • Money Lines
  • Prop bets
  • Futures

Here is an example of how line shopping can make you more money.

How Do I Line Shop?

It's actually relatively simple.

  1. Signup for as many sportsbooks as you can afford to within reason.
  2. Visit each of your sportsbooks and search around the available markets for whichever sport you are interested in wagering on.
  3. Take note of the odds available for that bet on each sportsbook.
  4. Place your bet on the sportsbook which offers the best line.
