Some DOs and a couple of DONTS for sports betting

Jun 1, 2016 by

DON’T believe in superstition. There’s a tremendous fun to the rituals of watching and betting on sporting events: stand up every time they’re about to make the kick, always eat the same food when you’re watching the team play, or make sure you’re wearing your lucky hat. Or whatever else. Well, these rituals can be fun they have absolutely no bearing whatsoever on the performance of the team or athlete you’re betting on. The sad truth of the matter is that the individual watching a match from the comfort of their home or favourite betting café is just not important enough to influence a match. If you want to indulge in these superstitions for the communal element, then go right ahead but know that it doesn’t matter. And it should NEVER influence your bet.
DO take advantage of your expertise and any additional knowledge you may have. You should only be betting on sports you understand well. That’s one of the first rules of gambling. However, don’t forget the other factors as well. If you know that one of the players of a team is going through a rough time, factor that in to how it will affect their performance and remember that when you’re deciding on your bets. If you’ve heard news of upcoming changes in the line-up consider how this could affect the morale of the team. It’s this kind of knowledge that can really make all the difference between a successful gambler and a chronic loser.
DO know all about gambling industry. Before heading down to the bookies and placing those bets, understand a little bit about how a bookie makes its money. Or a casino or an online gambling platform. All these places are there to make money and despite the chances of a big payday for betters these venues would be bankrupt if they didn’t turn profits themselves. Understand how odds and handicapping works. With a bit of knowledge not about sport but about gambling you may re-appraise what bets are sound and which ones are likely to lose. In a way it’s you versus them, so know what you about the people with whom you’re doing business before you place your bets.
DON’T bet emotionally. You’ll want to have an iceman mentality if you’re out to make money. If you’re struggling to pay your bills you’re likely to make bigger and bigger bets and on more and more dangerous matches or games in the hopes of a big payoff. These big payoffs can indeed happen, but they are very rare. If you’re feeling stressed, you probably shouldn’t bet. And the same can be true if you’re on a winning streak or just feeling particularly happy. A good mood can influence how much you’re betting on what you’re betting on just as much. As much as it is possible try to effect an ‘ice man’ attitude and bet on reason and logic and not emotion.
DON’T place bets when you’re drunk or high or tired or angry. This is similar to no betting emotionally, but we’ve all had bad ideas that we thought we were great when we were drunk. Don’t do it!

How to bet on sport

Lately, sports betting has become a very interesting topic due to the fact that more and more people seem to be doing it. Betting on sports has almost become a job for some people, and they act as if the know how to beat the system and come out victorious every time when betting. The sad truth is that there is no way of beating the system, and there s no thing a sure win; but there are some thing that each better could do, that could increase his chances of winning. And thanks to us, you will now get a chance to see what those thongs are, and possibly even use them.

670px-Win-at-Sports-Betting-Step-1First of all, you need to know how to do your math when it comes to sports betting. You need to think line a line-maker, and calculate everything before placing a bet. Picking your favorite may work a couple of times, but as you’ll see, the luck will run you out eventually. So, you need to know how the betting system works, you need to understand the odds, you need to understand the game, etc. If you do not possess any of these qualities, than sports betting just isn’t for you. Or, you could just blindly follow other people’s tips.

Also, to be great at sports betting, you need to know every single thing about the sport you’re betting on, and about every single player that is participating in a game you’re betting on. Remember, gossip may be a woman’s thing, but if you know that a player was arguing with his wife all night long, you’ll know that he probably didn’t get much sleep, which will probably affect his game of the field. Even such a small thing means a lot in a world of sports betting.

One other thing is also important, and it is perhaps the most important thing there is in sports betting, or any kind of betting for that matter: always bet within your bankroll. That means that you should never bet in anything you can’t deliver. If that happens, you’ll need to borrow money to return the old debts, which will in turn only lead you into new debts. And thus you enter into a magical circle of events that never seem to work out for the best. So, only bet in something you can deliver, no matter how sure you are in your success, because betting is all about luck, and as we have said earlier, sooner or later, your luck runs out.

Sports-Betting-MoneyEven though many believe that they have found a way to beat the system, the sad truth is that the system cannot be beat; all you can do is try to be better at the game and try to win as many bets as you can, because you just can’t win them all. If you take the things we’ve mentioned in this article into account, you might win several times, but keep in mind that bets were made to make profits for the house, and not the players.
