Consensus Pick

Last Updated:

A consensus pick in sports betting is a pick that has been agreed upon by the majority of bettors or handicappers. This information is typically derived from various sports betting websites and can be used by bettors to inform their own wagers. The consensus pick is often used in conjunction with other factors such as team/player statistics, injuries, and trends. However, it is important to note that the consensus pick is not a guarantee of a winning bet and should only be used as a tool in the handicapping process. It is also worth noting that some bettors may intentionally bet against the consensus pick in an effort to find value or exploit public perception. As with any betting strategy, it is important to do your own research and make informed decisions.
