SPORTS BETTING – 10 GOLDEN RULES FOR SUCCESS
The betting world is not one that guides itself after the “veni, vidi, vici” (I came, I saw, I won) formula; to be successful you need to understand what are you getting yourself into.
There is no book that will tell you, word by word, how to become successful in betting, but there are some tips that could help you along the way.
Rule #1: Understand the sport – start treating sports betting as a job.
Granted it will be one that will bring you joy, but you still need to work for it. Research everything you can find about the team you’re going to bet on, about the players, the injuries in the squad etc.
Rule #2: Set yourself a limit – of course you already have a budget set aside for betting, as well as the amount of money you’re willing to lose in a month.
If you reach the limit before the month is over, that’s when you know you have to stop betting. Keeping up with this rule will only ensure that you have fun while betting and you can eliminate the stress.
Rule #3: Bet on what you know – if you take football betting, be sure to set your eyes on a team or a league you have at least some knowledge about.
Even if you do your research properly, you have to make sure there’s enough information to make an accurate prediction. It’s never wise to try out sports and events you have zero knowledge about, it WILL hurt you in the long run.
Rule #4: Take advantage of bonuses – bookmakers offer huge bonuses upon opening an account.
Be sure to shop around for the best offers, because some sites can even double the amount of money you put in your bankroll when you open an account. Imagine all the amazing bets you could place with that amount of money.
Rule #5: Have patience – you might find yourself in the situation where you don’t find an event that you want to bet on.
If this happens, step away and enjoy your day out, because it’s always better to wait a little for a better offer; bookmakers have bad days too, you know?
Rule #6: Write down everything
Write down everything while you’re doing your research, it will help you spot future trends, but also make an analysis on your performance as a bettor. In the beginning it might look like a useless task and a waste of time, but remember we’re doing this for a long-term profit.
