McapMediaWire - Winners, Inc. (OTC: WNRS) through its operating subsidiaries, provides sports betting enthusiasts with high-quality content, analysis, research, data, and guidance for popular betting sports, announced it is taking steps to expand its product line of Handicapping Services to include same-game parlays, prop betting and/or in-game sports wagering.
Furthermore, the company decided to withdraw its application for a 1:20 reverse split of its common stock with FINRA. The Company withdrew the FINRA application considering its strategic expansion plans that include the increase of its product line and potential acquisitions that fit the company’s business model.
Wayne Allyn Root, CEO of Winners Inc., stated, “We are currently exploring different options to expand our product line of Handicapping Services which will include same-game parlays, prop betting and/or in-game sports wagering. The expansion of services will add additional revenue streams to the company. Also, we have recently done a buy-back of the outstanding shares by over 50%, creating a very attractive share structure, and if you combine that with our plans for aggressive growth, a reverse split just doesn’t make sense to us. I look forward to updating our progress in the coming weeks."
Same-game parlays, or SGPs, have emerged as not only one of the most popular bets on the board for bettors but also one of the most profitable for bookmakers. In last year's Super Bowl, 31% of bets placed before the game kicked off were same-game parlays at BetRivers, Barstool and other U.S. sportsbooks powered by Kambi, an international sports betting platform provider. At sportsbook PointsBet, 22% of all bets placed on the Super Bowl were SGPs. Both companies were anticipating even more Super Bowl SGPs this year. Not bad for something that sportsbooks in the U.S. only began accepting a few years ago.
Prop betting is the act of betting on an event that takes place inside of or during a ga tome or sporting event. Prop bets involve betting on events that take place inside the game but will differ from traditional point spread and total bets that deal only with the final outcome. A better way to think about it is like this. While a point spread or total bet asks you a specific question about the end result of a contest, a prop bet asks you a question about a result that will take place inside the game or event but isn’t directly tied to the final score. Prop bets expand our betting options as they allow us to bet on different elements of a contest. Player performance, team totals, who will score first and who will score last, are just some of the examples of the opportunities that prop bets provide us.
Live in-game betting is one of the most recent technological advancements in legal sports betting and one that has greatly improved the overall experience of sports betting. Essentially, live betting allows fans to bet on in-game outcomes while the game is being played. Before the introduction of live betting, all bets had to be locked in prior to the start of the game, but telecommunications technology and advanced analytics algorithms now allow sportsbooks to monitor the game and recalculate odds in real time. While live betting is a newer feature, it will likely prove popular in introducing sports betting to a younger, more tech-savvy generation of bettors.
