At Heritagesports we have the greatest selection of bets in the industry, from the all-time basics to the newest exotics. Betting the middle or middling as it is also known, is a betting strategy that can earn high profits without high risk.
While it can provide profitable results for bettors it is not necessarily the type of bet for the novice as it requires intermediate level sports betting knowledge and access to several sports wagering accounts.
Middling is essentially betting on both sides of a game where you have a chance to win both bets. Let’s look at an example.

Let’s say the Eagles are playing the Cowboys on Sunday night. On Monday, the line opens with the Cowboys as a 7-point favorite. You like the Cowboys in the game so you take them at -7 on the early line.
Now during the week the favorites bettors are all over the Cowboys and leading up to game time the oddsmakers have adjusted the NFL betting lines and now Dallas is a 10-point favorite. This three-point line move is especially intriguing in football because Dallas has gone from being favored by a touchdown to being favored by two scores. That is significant and opens the door to a middle.
Now on the new line, you bet on the Eagles at +10. With wagers on these two lines it is possible to win both bets if Dallas wins by 8 or 9 points. And, if the Cowboys were to win by 7 or 10 points you would still win at least one bet while getting your money back on the other on the push.
Middling can be a great way to earn major profits with little risk, but it’s not foolproof. You can still come out on the losing end very easily.
Say in our example that Dallas wins by three points. They would fail to cover your -7 wager, but you would still win your +10 wager on the Eagles. That 50% means you’re down money due to the juice (the standard 10% commission you pay to the sportsbook to handle the action).
If you’re looking into middle betting in other leagues, your best source for now is probably doing an online research to find push charts for those leagues, but keep in mind the data might not be accurate. As you get more experience with calculating value in sports betting, there will be times you spot a clear middle worth playing. When you’re just starting out, middle betting is probably not a good idea.
