Contrarian Theory Systems
The concept of contrarian systems to sports handicappers means that taking the team the public is systems against has value. The idea is very simple. If everybody on the systems public is systems on Team A, Vegas will shade the line on Team A such that there is more value to be had on Team B. Of course this does not work all of the time but there are definitely instances where this works great and we provide with you fundamental concept of how this works for all of the sports.
Monday Night games are the most bet on and most watched of all the games during the week. The increased amount of handle on the Monday Night games has historically shaded the line against the public and favors the contrarian player.

Betting the contrarian postion in basketball usually involves another key handicapping angle like the bounce back angle or even the revenge angle. For example, the systems public might have seen Team A beat Team B by over 20 points in their previous matchup and bet Team A heavily. Team B will not only have value in the spread but will also be more motivated from the loss to perform well.
When speaking of contrarian systems in baseball, I always assume underdog systems. The public loves systems favorites and it is no different in baseball. Underdogs have very great advantages when their offenses are playing well and/or they are great winning streaks.
Word to the wise is to nost trust any sports handicapping service unless you see their results at a national monitor service that grades their results.
