It triumphs with what you learn.
Everyone is new at gambling at some point. Unfortunately, all Sports Gamblers at one time or another has had to learn the hard way on what to do and what not to do. Below we have listed the Top 10 Mistakes that an Average Sports Gambler makes in his business endeavor to make money gambling on sports. If you avoid these top 10, then you should find real enjoyment in the money that you make Fun88.
10. The average sports gambler plays too many parlays. A parlay is a great play when you hit it, however, if you click on this link you will see why playing parlays will usually only cost you money. If you want to play parlays,keep the parlay small (no larger than 4 teams) and make each play less than 1/2 of your normal play amount.
9. The average sports gambler makes too many plays. All too often, ourselves included, you will see gamblers playing 14-20 plays per day. In all honesty, there is noway that your average sports gambler has enough authority on 28 to 40 teams to make that many plays and expect to do well. The key to making money is finding a few plays that the sports gambler feels confident in playing.
8. The average sports gambler follows other players too often. Whether you are paying a "service" or following a local handicapper that you trust from his posts on a sports-gambling forum, it is not wise to follow another persons plays. If you are going to mimic or "tail" another player's plays you MUST follow all of his or her plays. Say Capper "A" has a 10-2 record and plays games A B & C. You see his plays and don't think A or B can win, you don't know about C, so you make your own plays and mimic his play on C. Well A & B wins and C fails. You go 0-1 and he goes 2-1. If you "tail" another capper's plays you MUST follow all of his or her plays.
7. The average sports gambler only has one Book where he makes bets. The average sports gambler has one account at one Book and only makes plays at that book. A smart sports gambler will have 3 accounts at three DIFFERENT books with equal balances in each account. Why is this so important? First, the books will offer different lines. You make like a play on the Cowboys. If at Book 1, the line is -10, Book 2 -10.5 and Book 3 -9.5. It is obvious where you should make your bet.
6. The average sports gambler does not approach sports gambling as a business. To REALLY make money at gambling on sports you must approach sports gambling as a business. You MUST take your heart out of the plays that you make. If you are a Pittsburgh Steeler fan, you have to realize that you are going to be biased. If you hate the New York Knicks then maybe you will not be able to properly handicap your bets. Secondly, you must have a plan. You must know that you can only bet so much just in case you make a mistake. You must have a goal...something you want to achieve. (See #5) THERE IS NO LOCK OR GUARANTEE.
5. The average sports gambler does not track his Return on Investment or his Record. This mistake dovetails perfectly with #6. You must track your daily and overall Return on Investment (ROI). Return on Investment is a mathematical formula that results in a percentage. It is determined by dividing the amount won by the amount wagered. The higher the percentage the better you are doing. You must also track your record so you know which teams you cannot handicapp and which teams you can nail dead on Fun88.
