Placing Bets

Fri 05 May 2017

There are millions of bets placed on sporting events throughout the season. The winning and losing bets constitute an equal amount. The question most of you are asking is, what is the best way (if any) to improve on the winning ratio?

You are well advised to avoid the mistake that the majority of the punters make when betting on the outcome of a sporting event or match.

  1. Don’t be overconfident about your ability to pick the winning team. The only confirmed result is the one after the match or event has been completed. No one will ever know in 100% certainty how the match will turn out to be.

  2. Don’t discount the advices from the expert tipster. They are a selected group of punters who do through research on any particular match. Though the experts will not be right all the times, their percentage of winning is certainly much better than the average bettors.

  3. Don’t make the mistake of taking a guess as a hard fact. Let face the truth, a guess is just that, a guess and not a fact. Your guess might win you the bet or it might not.

  4. Don’t rely on the suggestion of your others. Researching the subject on your own is the right way forward. You might not get the results you want at first but treat the research as a learning process instead. You will reap huge rewards in the long run when you have mastered the skills of analysing the information available to make an informed decision.

  5. Don’t follow other people advice blindly. When you come across an expert whose tips you wish to follow, don’t jump straight into the deep end. Instead, test out the test by observing the tips against results for a short time and gauge the accuracy of the tips. You might also try to bet with a small amount in the initial testing stage to validate the effectiveness of the expert’s tips.

  6. Don’t be duped by the claims or testimonials of the experts. Getting to excited over the hype generated by the marketing of the expert service will only have negative results to your bottomline. Don’t get too emotional, maintain level headed and test the tips on a few bets no matter what the experts claims.

  7. Don’t forget that you will win as well as lose when you gamble. Sports betting is just another form of gambling. You must prepare to lose when you place a bet.

  8. Don’t fail to take a long term view in your betting. You will do well to come out with a betting strategy and a target to hit over several months. You might not win all the bets but if you managed to achieve your target in the specific period, then you are considered as a successful sports bettor.

There are professional sports bettors who do make a living out of wagering on sporting events and matches. Anyway, before you embark on your quest to have the ability to beat the odds on a consistent basis, you will have to device a plan on your own or with the help of an expert.

Once you have learnt to discipline yourself and avoid the biggest mistakes at all course, then you are are well placed to have a winning percentage of more than 50%.
