This is the time of year when the majority of sports bettors start coming alive as we begin to enter the multi-sport season. During the summer all we have is baseball to look forward to. Next week starts one of my favorite times a year Football season. It also means that the NBA and NHL will not be far behind. We will soon be into overlapping sports seasons, which is a bettor's paradise. Those not fortunate enough to live in Las Vegas where sports betting is legal will be entering office pools, logging on to online betting sites or calling their neighborhood "Sports Accountants" to place wagers on the games.
With so many people betting on different sporting games it is probably not a great surprise to learn that the majority of them are LOSERS! There are several reasons that people lose when betting on sporting events.
Favorite Team Syndrome Bettors will bet with their hearts and not their heads. They find it impossible to bet against their favorite team even though the facts clearly show they are backing a loser.
Not Being Selective. Some bettors have to have action on many games at a time or they will bet any game if it is on TV. It's not uncommon to see a player betting 5 or 6 NFL or NBA games on a given day. Players who just have to have a bet on Monday night football lose more money just because it's on TV. It can be a bad game but they will bet it.
Don't Do Any Homework. It's sad to say but the majority of sports bettors are lazy. They don't want spend the time to study the game. They would rather take the advice of a Sports Columnist or pay a tout service to try to pick a winner for them.
These days there are some really great programs available on the internet to assist sports betting enthusiasts in making the soundest picks possible. Do not get me wrong -- betting is, and always will be, a gamble. But you can improve your accuracy if you keep the following pointers in mind when choosing a program to help you make those bets. You are going to suffer losses from time to time. but it is important that you feel secure with the betting system you choose. Therefore, it should come with a guarantee that will make you feel more secure. That guarantee should be offered without any loss of money to you, and with no excuses from the program offerer if you are not completely satisfied.
The program should be easy to use. If you are already a professional gambler, you probably do not need the assistance of a sports gambling system to improve your accuracy. More than likely, you are an average person who enjoys sporting events, and should be able to use the system with no prior sports knowledge or betting experience needed.
The creator of the program should be qualified and able to provide a history of success in the field. They should have a successful history of sports betting, and preferably an education in the field of statistics which would enable them to set up databases and analyze the input effectively. The betting system should require nothing but straight wagers; rather than progressive betting, parlays, arbitrage, betting on both sides of the line or any other gimmicks or, of course, anything unethical or illegal.
