Advices on Betting Fundamentals

In this article we are going  to pinpoint some of betting fundamentals- some things we consider very basic, but very imperative as well, if you want to be a professional or at least profitable bettor.

 

  1. DON’T YOU EVER,  EVER bet with money you can not afford to lose.
    This one  is something that probably most of you have heard hundreds of times, up to a point where they become bored of it, but we consider it so fundamental and so important, that it is worth mentioning another 100 times.
    Just set aside a sum of money, that you will call a ”betting bank” and you will not rely on it about anything else- paying some bills, doing your laundry, buying something from the grocery shop, let alone  buying  a new  car  or something  similar with it. This is just a sum of money you will use only for your betting activities, full stop. You should first sit down with a pen and paper, and estimate what is the amount of money you can set aside for your betting, considering first your income, and your daily expenses as well. What you are left with you can make a “betting bank” out of it. Here the golden rule is that the amount should be such as even if you lose it, it won’t drastically affect your lifestyle. Now you can begin your betting career.
  1. GET EDUCATED ABOUT SPORTSBETTING
    With so much information about sports betting around, with Internet and other convenient sources of info all this at your fingertips, and what`s even better- the great deal of it you are getting for free, you have no excuse whatsoever to just blindly jump into the deep waters and lose your betting bank quickly. Educate yourself well before you start betting for real- this will save you a big disappointment. Do a research on Internet to find out which are the good reliable bookmakers/or take advantage of their free bet offers on this web-site or any other, similar to this/. Learn how the betting works in principle, learn the most common types of bets you can make with your bookmaker, learn the specific betting rules of the sports you would like to bet on. Read a couple of betting systems/there are so many of them on Internet free of charge/, and see if some of  them will suit your betting style for example. All in all just don`t jump blindly into the deep waters-that`s one of easiest ways to bankruptcy.
  1. HAVE A STAKING PLAN
    Unless you are very good at predicting some sport’s results, or you have a sound knowledge on handicapping/more on this matter in another article/ betting to a flat, level stake will most probably slowly but certainly exhaust your betting bank in some time. Because even if for the sake of this example if you are right with your predictions half of the time at events, which have equal chance of happening, you will still be unable with  your winnings to cover the house edge or the bookmakers under round/more on this  again later/ and you will still be losing a couple of quid here and there. Having a good staking plan, based on a sound foundations can overcome this issue. Now quite naturally arises the question-“What kind of a staking plan?” And truly there are so many of them. And now we come back to the previous point- education is the key. So again- educate yourself  about the staking plans. There is such a great deal of information on this matter in Internet/again absolutely for free/ that you can learn the basics of the most common ones in no time. There are even web-sites, completely dedicated on presenting information about staking plans, so again you are not alone in this venture either. We  are going to have a more proper  look at the most popular ones in another article. Now just for the sake of being more informative we are going to list some of the most widely used ones: Level, Percentage, Fibonacci, D`Alembert, Maria, Rolling doubles, Kelly, Secure, Pro, Retirement, Stop at a Winner, Coup Master and many, many more.
  1. CONSIDER HAVING A TIPSTER
    Now to be honest this is kind of a tricky matter. There are so many around that it is difficult to make a choice. There are so many “self-proclaimed” gurus, promising you that if you buy their system, or subscribe to their service you are on your way to riches in no time, that we don’t even think we should spend any of our time discussing these hilarious self-proclamations.

    For us the bottom line is that probably 95% are just scammers and nothing more. There are people however, that really know their business, and subscribing to their services could give you a nice profit. These are usually people who have been around in sports-betting for ages, many of them- ex- practitioners in some kind of sports-ex-jockeys, ex-football players and so on. Some of these guys really know what this game is all about and as it was said before: following them can really get you into profit. Now the natural question is how to distinguish between these 2 categories and pay for a service, that will give you profit at the end. It is not so difficult as you may  think it is. There are free web-sites, which verify the performance of all the tipsters in their program, so you can pick one you can thrust. As we are not going to mention any of these sites in particular, they are pretty easy to be found on Internet. “What does verified tipster mean?” you may ask. Now all the verified tipsters are obliged to share their tips with the verifying site prior to the tipped event starts. In other words it is a guarantee that the tipster`s results have not been just made up, have not being tempered and basically what you see is what you get with them. The longer the tipster has been verified, the better. So in these verifying tipsters web-sites  you can find some tipsters that are well worth considering and thus performing better in your betting activity.
  1. DON`T YOU  EVER  FORGET  THAT  YOU SHOULD ENJOY YOUR BETTING
    At first  you may think that this is something that does not need particular attention, we can honestly tell you straight- if it is not fun- do not do it. Do you often find your hands sweating while you are watching an event, you have money at stake on? Do you walk around all the way up and down your living room, feeling like a nervous wrack  till you finally hear that whistle signing the end of the game being blowned? Did you recently top-up your betting bank with the money you set aside for your family summer vacation, only because of that stupid bet lost due to a goal in the extra time? If you do-just forget it. Obviously Sportsbetting is not your thing. Take over something you will enjoy doing it all the way, not only because of the final outcome. In other words- enjoy the journey, not the destination. You should accept both your winnings and losses without a big emotional up or down. You should understand and accept that losing is part of the game you are playing. You should be smiling all the way while playing the game, otherwise- it is not worth it.

Accept betting just as a part of your life and not as your whole life, and start being eager putting that wager, no matter what the outcome will be. Then and only then you will get a grasp of what of a great deal of fun sports betting could really be.
