Learn To Win

Hands down, the biggest mistake bettors make is not following a Bet Application Process. This is sage advice from the Texas Tornado, a Playbook disciple. The nature of sports betting is streaky for all. Play the hot streaks,when Lady Luck is in a bad mood, step away until you notice the losing streak has passed. Don’t fight Lady Luck and live to play another day. In addition, learn to “draw down and keep your bankroll in a box”. This allows a bettor perspective on ‘remaining disciplined ‘when placing your bets. In other words, bettors tend to lose perspective when working with a larger bankroll and play looser. Set a goal to win $2,000.00 five times instead of $10,000 all at once. Stay in the game! Remember, the Sports Bettor’s responsibility is to gain a decided handicapping edge and to be sharp enough to place your bets without making BET APPLICATION MISTAKES. It’s critical to utilize a Money and Game Management game plan and stick to it. Learn the Bet Application Process here.

Grinding Out The Profits

Sports gambling is a very emotional space, but it can be a particularly visceral and heartbreaking venture when you get into the world of parlays. The payouts can be extremely tempting, but pretty much everything needs to go right on a multi-team parlay, as just one miss will bring the entire thing crumbling down. Just to show how betting parlays can be heart-rending consider this: one bettor saw their massive parlay nearly turn from pipe dream to incredible reality last weekend when they came tantalizing close to cashing out when he came this-close on a 20-team parlay. After hitting on the first 19 bets, the bettor just needed the Washington Redskins to beat the Chicago Bears outright on Monday Night Football in order to turn 89 cents into nearly $500,000. At the end of the day, it was an 89-cent loss.
