Making money online with online sports betting is a perfectly achievable target for anyone. In this article, I want to show you what separates the men (profitable) from the boys (losers) when it comes to sports betting.
Bet On What You Know
Although there are exceptions (see below), you should only bet on what you know.
There are many losers who bet on a sport because they get a “feeling”. They don’t have any logic or analysis or knowledge that they use to make their Best10 decisions. Not just that, but many of these guys will think emotionally and then invent a pseudo-scientific logic to justify their actions.
Of course, these guys lose time and time again – and they even contrive their own false logic to explain to themselves that it was “lady luck” and keep their egos intact!
If you want to make money but don’t yet know enough about a specific sport or even sports in general then you might want to check out tipping services, also called “picks”.
The problem with tipping services is that this world is a veritable minefield. It can be very difficult to separate the good from the bad and the ugly.
In general, paid services are better than free services. Not always, but in general. Secondly, only join a service if you can cancel with zero of very little notice. Don’t go with a service that locks you in for 6 months. Thirdly, look out for statistics that prove the long term yield of a tipping service. If the yield is negative then obviously avoid it – ideally you want a yield of about 15% minimum.
Sports Betting Systems
Any pro-gambler who produces picks that are consistent winners will either know a lot about his sport or, more likely, he will also be using his own system.
But why pay a monthly fee for picks when you could buy a system instead and decide your own bets? The other advantage is that you will learn a great deal about what you are betting on – it is always preferable to understand your bets rather than simply bet “blind”.
Most systems are simply a set of conditions and rules that you need to look for in order to identify a betting opportunity. Then you should follow a prescribed staking plan, as described by the system.
