Betting do's and don'ts

  With time and experience of bettors as a whole,  there are a number of things, that are proven to be like axioms for the  betting, and can be confidently called  “The golden rules of betting”. They have established themselves as such by standing the test of time and proving on a consistent basis, that are  unbreakable rules while betting and that ignoring them almost always costs the punter money, disappointment and time. If you are really a smart bettor, you won’t allow yourself to learn from your own mistakes, cause it is considerably easier and cheaper to learn from mistakes of the others. Let’s just start with the DO’S.

1.DO MAKE ANY BETTING  ONLY WHEN THE OPPORTUNITY PRESENTS ITSELF, AND  NOT BECAUSE YOU HAVE GOT ACCUSTOMED  TO DOING IT ON AN EVERY DAY’S BASIS- this is a thing  that can really ruin  your overall performance, until you stop doing that. If neither of your systems is giving you a proper straightforward and absolutely in all of it’s rules selection, just skip the day, do not bet, stay aside and wait till a proper selection inevitably comes. With any system it could happen not to produce any selection in a certain day, and it might be even more than 1-2 days in a row/although if you are operating a number of systems it is highly unlikely this to happen with all of them in the same time/. Putting those 50 quid on the second best, or a kind of a “substitution” selection just shows a lack of discipline and determination to become really successful with your betting. So in such cases it is just so obvious and  simple- just don’t bet for the day.

2. DO SHOP FOR THE BEST POSSIBLE PRICE YOU CAN OBTAIN FOR YOUR SELECTIONS-of course shopping around for the best price requires accounts with a lot of bookmakers, and apart from this is not the most amusing things to do, finding the best price for your selections is an absolute paramount of your success. Just imagine/or even do some math’s if you want/ finding the odds of 2.0 for a selection, which is priced everywhere else at 1.91. How much profit to your betting this can get on top of. The simple answer is- a huge profit.

3. DO TRY TO OBTAIN SOME VALUE IN YOUR BETS- again in the long term it sounds like a lot more money in the bank for you. If you already have some solid knowledge about  betting , you probably want to do some handicapping as well. From all the information, gathered about that team, that horse, etc, you already might be able to tell that the true possibility of that bet being successful, deserves the odds of say 3.5. So in this case wherever you can obtain for this odds of 3.75 and above, it simply means, that you have obtained an edge over the house and even betting to a level stake you will  be  a lot more profitable.

4. DO HAVE A SYSTEM AND DO STICK TO IT, NO MATTER WHAT/ESPECIALLY IN A SHORT TERM/. Having a system to follow in your betting is the much better option than just betting at random. The randomness will welcome all kinds of emotions to affect your betting. You won’t be able to analyze anything /and possibly see where you go wrong/, because simply there isn’t anything on paper to be analyzed. You will never be able to improve your betting and take it to another level, cause you lack proper analysis. Betting randomly much more resembles playing a Lotto game, rather than trying to make money with a systematic approach. On the other side if you have a system/and more importantly having the necessary discipline to follow it to the letter/, could  be really beneficial. If the manner of your betting could  be called confidently a system, it means, more often than not, that it has been back-tested over a sufficiently long period, and have stood the tests of some time. Also it should obviously be built on good fundamentals, that  alone giving you edge over the house. By betting with a system you can always analyze the things, if you are not happy with something, and can always make some improvements to it. The most difficult thing actually is being able to stick to your system/systems/ to the letter- that’s discipline and common sense. Don’t you ever forget that even the best systems do have draw-downs, which you should always consider just as a temporary set-back

5. DO TAKE THE TIME,MONEY AND EFFORT TO EDUCATE YOURSELF ABOUT BETTING, AS MUCH AS YOU CAN. Like it was already mentioned on this site- read as many books and articles about Sports-betting, as you can. Learn something for each type and style of betting, and make the judgment, which one suits you best. The more knowledge you have, the more reasonable bets you will make. The more  reasonable your bets are- the more profitable your overall betting activity will be. So whenever you have some spare time- educate yourself about Sports-betting, if you have already  decided to be a very profitable bettor of course.

There are a lot more DO’S to be discussed, but we believe that here we have pinpointed some of the most important ones.

 

 

Now let’s have a look at some DONT’S

 

 

  1. DO NOT EVER, EVER GAMBLE WITH MONEY, YOU CAN NOT AFFORD TO LOSE. Simply just don’t gamble with your bread money. If you can not afford it for the time being, postpone it, do it in the near future, get a better-paid job/or in some cases just a job/ and only when you have some savings, set aside a certain amount of them as your  “Risk Capital”, which is meant to be for betting and betting only. Your risk capital is just this- a risk capital, and wherever there is the word risk involved, there is a possibility you can lose it. Although with the right tools and knowledge it is highly unlikely. In other words- losing the whole  of your bank for Sports-betting, should not affect your standard of life, and the standard of life of your family at the least, and you should be able to start it all over again from the scratch.
  2. DO NOT EVER BET ON YOUR  FAVORITE TEAM/HORSE, ETC/ ONLY BECAUSE IT IS YOUR FAVORITE AND WILL PUT SOME ADRENALYNE IN YOU, AND IT IS NOT A SELECTION OF EITHER OF YOUR SYSTEMS. Here we come again to the bettors psychology, mentality, and discipline. There is  nothing wrong of course, if you are just a  social bettor, to make watching that game with more excitement, when you have money on it. It could be a real fun, and even it could turn out to be a profitable investment. But if you are not a social type of gambler, and you rather want to be a “sports investor”- simply do not do this- it is irresponsible, it doesn’t impose any good  habits in your betting, and more often than not- it won’t be profitable in the long term, as an investment.
  3. DO NOT EVER BET, WHEN YOU ARE ON SOME KIND OF A SUBSTANCE INFLUENCE- DRUGS, ALCOHOL, ETC. Betting in such conditions will cloud your judgment, will make you irrational, and will just “force” you to lose money. If you are not aware, this is actually the reason why in the  Las Vegas Casinos they would serve you  with a high quality alcohol drink for free. Obviously it’s been well tested, and has proved to be a profitable management’s tactics. Obviously it is much more profitable for the Casino to make you bet while you are drunk, no matter that it will spend a lot of money on drinks. The conclusion is there for everyone to make one.
  4. 4.      DO NOT EVER ATTEMPT TO SPARE SOME MONEY ON INFORMATION.

No matter if you have decided to pay for your own education as a sports investor, or you have decided to pay a tipster to make those selections instead of you, do not ever go for a purchase of this kind, only because it is cheaper. In this game at some point, the cheaper becomes more expensive at the end. Instead of this look for quality- quality e-books, quality tools for  betting, quality tipping service, which could all deliver. At the end of the day this is your venture towards becoming rich from Sports-betting, and thus no compromising about 2 quid/or even much more/ is reasonable and well-thought. The knowledge and information are your strongest weapons in the “rags to riches” battle. So the bottom line is- always stick to the quality and not the price.

  1. DO NOT EVER FORGET TO HAVE FUN, WHEN YOU ARE BETTING. It might sound a bit controversial to you at  first, but actually it is not at all. Making money and having fun are not self-excluding things at all, at least the way we see things.   It is true that up to this point  it looks like we made every possible effort, trying to  convince you, that betting is a very serious thing, with no emotions, likes or dislikes to be involved. And as it is absolutely true that you have to be disciplined to  succeed, success in Sports-betting does not exclude the pleasure of it in any way. At the end of the day- this is just a game, which could give  your life a slightly different meaning, but it can not ever be considered as the meaning of life itself.

 

We do believe that if you follow the above-mentioned DO’S and DONT’S, it will make you much more profitable sports investor, and will deliver your overall betting journey a lot more pleasure and excitem
