The Dangers of Doubling Up When Betting Sports

The Dangers of Doubling Up When Betting Sports

We all know what is the best sports betting strategy, the one that never loses. It is a strategy based solely on taking advantage of the statistical probabilities. The problem is that these probabilities are abstractions and not something that we personally see or experience. That is why most sports bettors will lose money over the course of a season.

The greatest danger in sports betting is the doubles, which are teams that lose for the second straight week and are then written off by the sports books as a bad matchup. We all know how that works. The books are sticking to their predetermined picks. The problem is that they are based on nothing more than public perception and betting momentum. All of a sudden the hot team is not the favored one and the book is getting wiped out.

The greatest danger to you when betting sports is not having confidence in your betting system. If you do not believe in its ability to produce a winning streak, you will not be betting with confidence. The books and their calculated successes have convinced the betting public that they have the winning edge and over time the books have made a lot of money. Over the course of the 2007 season, the books will have a lot of games they have predicted to cover and most of the time they will be correct. However, this is the exception and not the rule.

It is also important to bet against the public. The books are not looking to bet against you, they are simply betting that more people will lose than will win. Over the course of the 2007 season, the books will have a lot of games they have predicted to cover and most of the time they will be wrong. That is why it is important to bet against the public. Once you bet against the public you are protecting your bankroll, which in the end will determine your success.

No one is making a mistake when they bet on a panen138. Successful sports bettors are building their bankrolls brick by brick and mortar. They don’t risk everything they have on a game and they are always analyzing the situation first before placing the bet. Over time, such consistent play will pay off for you, but you have to start slowly.

Losing is a part of any business and for those who accept that fact, it is a necessary part of the process. If you accept losing, you will have to work smarter on winning. Take a blank cheque and a pen and write down the following: 20 units to be placed in 2 different games this season. (going to the bank account money and writing that down) Make a commitment to yourself to repeat this process 33 times this season and you will soon be surprised at how little you have to lose.

The next step is taking the information you worked out during the 80% that was written above and creating a betting strategy off of it. It could be a poker tournament, a football pool, a horserace, anything. Start it with one unit and after each game wait for the numbers to be determined. Once you have a good idea of the numbers, you can bet on each of the next three games knowing you are in position to win at least one.

This process may take some time to do but it sure is worth it. By the time you are done you will have won off by 20 units and more and you will have built yourself a nice bankroll. The only time you will have failed was when you didn’t stay with the plan. Unfortunately, many people go broke after only a couple of weeks even when they have a plan. You can be a pioneer. You are ready to be.
