Think of your betting as a business and it's your business to make a certain amount of money each day. Aim low to begin with say $20 bet small and reach your goal and at the end of the year you would have $7300 even if you only bet once per week that is still $1040 a year. See small wins really add up and I am of the opinion that the less you spend the better. You can actually have good wins spending a small amount of money. Use your head and remember the key idea of when you make a bet you are really in fact making a business decision.
Of course I didn't! That would have been complete madness, and dicing with financial suicide. Putting absolutely everything you have on one horse is an example of bad money management – albeit an extreme example, but it got your attention didn't it?
What I am about to reveal in this article is perhaps one of the most underestimated aspects to betting on horses. Of all the expert betting advice I give, this ranks up there as one of the key items that all punters should know, hence the reason for me sharing this with you via this article.
Horse racing is one of the most exciting sports imaginable and it takes place all over the world. Although people will tell you that it is the thrill of watching horses pitting themselves against each other that is the fascination of the sport this is not really true.
Its one thing having the best racing tips that money can buy, but using them effectively and correctly is another matter entirely. Unfortunately, there are numerous examples that I can give you of punters who achieve relative success with winners, yet they still do not make a profit.
Record keeping and identifying trends in those records has been key for my own betting on horses and it should be imperative for any serious racing bettor. The key to becoming a better and better punter is adapting to information as and when it becomes available.
Do the maths really make sense before placing your horse racing bets? This is one of the first questions you should ask yourself before considering putting down your stake money. Does the horse racing pick you have chosen provide VALUE?
I am sure we all go shopping and we rarely get to the checkout without first knowing what the price is, whether it's a pint of milk or a wide screen TV. If you bet at Starting Price (SP) then you are doing just that. You are asking someone to just let you have whatever they think, no matter how much of a rip-off that may be.
Why Punters Lose - PATIENCE. It's up to you to learn how to be good punter! In general most punters lose because they lack certain qualities. Less than 2% of punters worldwide show a profit at the end of a racing season.
One of the questions I'm asked most often is how do I go about, going full time as a professional gambler? A significant part of my income comes from my betting activities, so I guess I am qualified to talk with some authority on what it takes to make money from betting.
If you want a short and fast rule for succeeding in betting on horses as an investment, it is this: find out what the majority of people do and then do the exact opposite! As I may have mentioned previously, the majority of punters are simply there to kick money onto the pot for the professionals to take home at the end of each race day.
Most punters have a very selective memory. They tend to recall all the good wins but rarely discuss the many losses in between. Essentially if you are not recording your bets it’s because you don’t really want to face the fact that you are probably losing money. Here are some facts you need to consider if you are serious about making a profit and winning long-term.
Incrementally increasing betting stakes in controllable small amounts when on a winning streak is an approach that has been around for a long time, although not used much previously. The main reason for that is because of the previously long-winded manual processing of the mathematics involved. But today we can get computers to do all that for us, so this method should now start to come into its own.
Three out of five horse races are unbettable and this doesn't matter whether favorites or long shots win them. The fact is: The best horse doesn't always win and the fastest horse doesn't always win. One of the reasons for this is plain: Races are filled by racing secretaries eager to fill cards, not to produce easily handicapped winners.
As the popularity of the betting exchanges grows, so more and more people are looking to profit from horse racing by laying horses to lose. But what is the best strategy? On the face of it, one might think that simply betting that the outsider will lose is a quick way to make easy money. In reality, the best horse to bet against is the race favorite.
Staking plans vary in their difficulty; from the exceedingly easy to the very exotic and sophisticated, and staking plan methodology can be modified to any form of betting or speculation, for example, horse racing, stock market investments, casino table games, etc. Remember bookmakers ultimately want a bettor to chase losses with some blind hope, often depending on pure luck, and this is what will happen without the use of a disciplined staking plan. And please remember staking plans can also be risky as they can never turn a simply bad gambler into a professional gambler alone.
Horse racing is a favorite pastime of many men especially those who love to gamble their money in the hope of getting more bucks if they win. Those who just bet on certain occasions may also be influenced by the gambling atmosphere that it’s possible for them to make horse racing their way of life. But no matter who they are – horse owners, trainers and gamblers, they share one common agenda and that is to win money.
Any horse racing system must have a money management component built in. This is of paramount importance. Without this component, it is still possible to lose huge sums of money no matter how much research a bettor does. It is only by minimizing losses and maximizing wins that you can hope to become a profitable bettor. That is the heart of any horse racing system.
Ever wondered how a bookmaker ‘makes’ his ‘book’? When you visit a race course and look along the rows of bookmaker pitches, just how do they come up with the different prices? Surely the figures are not just plucked out of thin air, because its not often you hear the sob story about a poor bookmaker!
One of the reasons why I first became interested in betting exchanges was a desire to understand how it all worked (apart from the obvious desire to make money). The first books, tips, and informational pieces I read all said the same thing: if there was a large weight of money on one side of the market for a single horse then this would provide an indication as to the way the price would react to the money. If there was £6,000 on the lay side for example split £2,000 apiece on the three prices showing, and only £200 split across the three back prices showing, then the common thinking indicated that the price would shorten.
What I am going to outline over this series of articles is a method that can be used successfully for trading horses on Betfair. I guarantee this method works and will make you a profit with minimal financial risk to your overall betting pot. If you stick rigidly to the rules!
