I've often heard it said, "you can't win betting on sports." The truth is sports betting is one of the few types of gambling that you CAN win at. The problem is there are so many factors which need to be taken into account, it can be very overwhelming.
There are playing conditions, injuries, home or away games, players health, defense, offense, past performance, coaches, importance of match, rivalries to name a few just to calculate a very precise outcome.
What's The Odds?
Most people betting sports aren't aware that you only need to win 52.5% of your bets to break even. 56% winners makes you very successful. If you can manage to average above 56%, you are going to make an enormous amount of money.
Now 56% doesn't sound like much, does it? just over half your wagers.
The rest is discipline, money management and no doubt, a good selection method. But let's be clear, there is no magic bullet, no quick and easy method... or is there?
Are You In It For Fun Or For Money?
It can definitely be fun and very exciting to win, especially when you've got a big bet riding on the game. Or maybe you just lost a game and decided to double up on the next one to try and "get even."
If you've ever tried this tactic, I'm sure you know all too well that more often than not you lost the 2nd game too. Now you're broke, starting over, building up a new bankroll and hoping for a better outcome the next time... But as you know, hope is not a winning strategy.
This kind of heart-stopping action is not for me. For my money I prefer a more predictable type of wagering whether it's betting on sports or any other form of gambling. I like to have more control over the result.
Just to be clear, there will be losing games and maybe even losing days, but by managing your money, patiently building your bankroll, you can comfortably afford to take a swing at those parlays.. that is a winning strategy.
Betting a small consistent amount per game is not exciting... but that is what intelligent, professional sports bettors do. So the question is, "are you doing it for the excitement, or for the money?"
Taking The Gambling Out of Sports Betting
A winning bettor always tries to take the gamble out of the game. Each bet is a calculated risk. There is no magic method that will bring in thousands of dollars overnight.
Taking down a steady monthly profit, working only 5 minutes a day IS the only way. And if you let your account multiply for a few months, before long (months not years), you will reach a point where you could be bringing in hundreds or even thousands of dollars of profit each month... now that's magical.
Sports Investing will with near certainty turn a small amount of capital today into significant monthly income, month after month and year after year.
There are people who say you can't win betting on sports... they're just wrong. Wishing you the best of luck always.
