Does your PPH Service include expert risk management? Probably not, unless you are lucky enough….or smart enough…to already be affiliated with one of the top ranked price per head companies in the industry like Host PPH located down in sunny Costa Rica where wagering on sports has always been legal and licensed.

Why do bookmakers enlist the services of a price per head company in the first place if it is not to put their business into the hands of professionals with years of experience dealing with bookmakers just like you? It comes down to a matter of trust and bookies who have been working with HOST PPH Services for some time now sleep well knowing that their business is in good hands and that there is always someone helpful to talk with should anything unexpected come up.

The idea is to have on staff only seasoned professionals with decades of experience in the wagering industry. As you might guess, in this rather specialized business, it is not an easy task to assemble a team of experts dedicated to keeping their clients happy and making money.

Bookies are usually pretty smart guys and gals. They have to be. They wouldn’t stay in the bookie business for very long if they were not pretty sharp themselves and adept at staying on top of the action.

But there always seems to be that one guy who gets hot and beats you silly week after week and you can’t figure out how he’s doing it. That’s where a sophisticated ‘Risk Management’ specialist can come in and save your cookies. The solution may not be quick and easy, but it will be a solution….and that particular drain on your hold percentage will be brought under control.

There is an easy way to check it out. Call your current service and ask them to review the action of a couple of players who have been getting the best of you lately and see what the tell you. Do they have a solution for you? Do they even know what you are talking about?

Avoid any company offering PPH services which also runs a sports book as they will quickly become competitors for you own hard won clients. Stick with the specialists and get it done right the first time.

Of particular interest to bookmakers is in finding that special PPH Service like Host PPH, that not only offers expert ‘Risk Management’ advise but also includes their own professional lines movement department that works hard to keep the lines that you and your players see just as sharp as possible at all times. If you have been in the business for any length of time, you know very well that feature alone will put money in your pocket at the end of the week.

Call the friendly agents down at Host PPH at 866 601 4678 and let them show you how working with a truly first class pay per head service can do for you.



Today’s modern wagering software has now evolved to the point of excellence in convenience and dependability for both player and bookie so that down time and computer errors are practically a thing of the past.

The first wagering software came about during the late 1990’s with the advent of the offshore wagering industry, which started out simply enough down in the Caribbean about 1994, and saw such rapid growth and market expansion that software developers were in a panic to provide a working and useable product for this new budding industry.

Since that time some of the best and brightest minds in the software industry have been working on and developing software specifically aimed at the offshore wagering industry, including both post up sports books and the price per head companies like Host PPH who work exclusively with professional bookmakers.

In the old days bookies were vulnerable because it was necessary for them to always be in possession of their accounts in what became rather famously known as ‘the little black book’, but that little black book landed some otherwise honest guys in the pokey just for having it in their possession. It was later used as evidence that he was involved in taking bets on sporting events and such, which was not so good.

The wagering software in use by today’s top companies such as Host PH have eliminated the need for the modern bookie to carry around anything other than his phone or other mobile device on which he can find real time reporting on the status of each and every one of his clients at any time of the day or night. Bookmakers also now have the ability to manipulate limits and action on certain clients as they wish or even move the lines that their clients see should they see fit.

A quality company such as Host PHH will provide their bookmaker clients with software that is up to date in all respects so that they are able to stay on top of their business 24/7/365.  As a matter of fact they now provide 19 different reports covering all aspects of your bookie business.  Most folks will never use all 19 reports every day but instead pick out the ones that they want to check out every day and then others that they will inspect on a weekly basis.

Now a bookie can check on his player’s history or open bets with just the click of a button and also have a ‘bet ticker’ option going that will show the day’s action coming in real time so that the bookmaker can keep his finger on the pulse of the action.  There is even a ‘big bet alert’ that sounds an alarm whenever any wager which exceeds a preset figure.

For the player, modern wagering software has simplified placing a bet on a game to the point where it can now be done in a matter of seconds from almost any location where there is Internet or WiFi available. As a second option, first class PPH companies like Host PPH have call centers staffed by experienced English speaking agents available to take wagers 24/7 for your client’s convenience.

Modern online betting platforms make getting to the wagering page easy and more user friendly than ever before. Bettors can now get in and place their wagers with a minimum of time and effort from anywhere they happen to be.

Throughout the 20 years of operation, Host PPH has always strived to provide the best possible experience for their bookmaker agents by providing them with all the tools they need to run a successful local bookie business, make money and stay out of trouble.

Spreads and totals were on the line late in contests all across the board this weekend in the NFL as game after game came down to the wire or the scores changed dramatically late in the game.  Losers turned to winners and winners to losers in the closing minutes of games all day long and bettors either cried or cheered accordingly.

Take for instance the Minnesota Vikings, who sat around on their hands not scoring at all in the first half and falling behind the Denver Broncos 20-0 at half time.  Game over, right?  Wrong!

What was looking like a huge upset in the making, the Vikings were 10 point favorites to win the game, was brought to a screeching halt with 6:10 remaining in the 4th quarter when Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins passed short left to Kyle Rudolf for 32 yards and a touchdown putting Minnesota ahead of the Broncos for the first and final time in the game at 27-23.

The Vikings did not cover the -10 point spread, but they did win the game with one of the most incredible comebacks in recent memory. What did hit the ten point mark was the predicted total of 40 which went over by 10 points even though the Vikings defense managed to shut out the Broncos in the 4th quarter.

Out West it was another fantastic finish for the San Francisco 49ers as they put up 19 points in the 4th quarter against the Arizona Cardinals to take a come from behind victory by a final score of 36-26 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA. by holding off a late surge when Cardinal quarterback Kyler Murray scored on a 22 yard keeper to put the Broncos ahead 26-23 with six and a half minutes left to play.

But stopping Jimmy Garoppolo and the San Francisco offense in the 4th quarter was more than the Broncos defense could manage and the 49ers quarterback tossed a 25 yard touchdown pass to Jeff Wilson Jr. with only 31 seconds left in the game and San Francisco had come back from 16 points down to take a stunning 36-26 victory over the Denver Broncos.

Ironically the spread was San Francisco -10, and they won by 10, so the game was a push unless some savvy bookie managed to slip in a hook for the contest. Once again the game went way over the predicted 44 points ending with a total of 62 points put up by both teams.

The New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles did not score a point in the 4th quarter of their game at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia giving fans a lackluster finish to a lackluster football game.  Tom Brady only completed 26 of 47 passes for 216 yards and not a single TD.

Carson Wentz did at least throw one touchdown pass but only completed 20 of 40 passes for 214 yards in the contest in which the Patriots covered the -4.5 spread and the totals went to the under this time as only 27 of the predicted 45 points were put on the board.

Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott gave credence to speculation that the Cowboys have the best offense in the NFL by putting up 444 yards in the air with an additional 18 yards rushing and scoring 3 touchdowns without throwing a single interception against the Detroit Lions.

Detroit quarterback Jeff Driskel, filling in for the injured Matt Stafford, threw for 209 yards and 2 TD’s in an exciting contest which went down to the wire with both teams scoring in the fourth quarter.  As in most games this week, the over bets won the day as the final score of 35-27 was 15.5 points over the predicted 46.5.  Over bettors did well with the NFL in week 11.

The Ravens’ Lamar Jackson, Sam Darnold of the Eagles and Jimmy Garoppolo of the 49ers each threw 4 touchdown passes in Week 11 while Drew Brees of the Saints, the Vikings’ Kirk Cousins, Dak Prescott of the Cowboys and Jeff Allen of the Buffalo Bills each threw 3 TD’s guiding their teams to another NFL victory.
