The points outlined below, repeatedly tested in practice by beginners and professional bookmakers.
So, here we go.
Beginner’s betting rules
1. Why bet?
Betting can be seen as a business or entertainment, respectively the approach is different. In the first case the main thing to understand is that no matter who says there is never a 100% guarantee of victory, there is always an element of play, excitement. Immediately establish the amount of money that you can allocate to the game, preferably without severely affecting the main budget.
- Determine a game strategy, range of bets, outcomes, follow the events in the selected sport, read and constantly learn.
- It is useful to keep a kind of “diary” of fixing bets, followed by analysis and awareness of the good moments, and what is worth to work on.
- If betting is for you entertainment, a bonus, to make it more interesting to follow the game of your favorite team, then there are no special rules. One piece of advice – don’t bet a premium.
Gathering parlay odds of 50-100, the player goes along with the possible winnings and forgets about the probability theory and the risk-to-win ratio. As a rule, in the end result, such a player has many “lineups”, with high hopes, but in each did not pass a couple. For the first time, we advise you to postpone expresses, betting single bets instead.
2. Financial Strategy
Determine the bank (the amount allocated to bets), the size of one (preferably up to 5%), the direction of betting, the approximate number of bets per day (week), the ratio of single and parlay, if any. The number of bets should allow each to be deliberate and balanced, because we approach betting as a business, right? The moment you back out of the strategy will symbolize the beginning of the end. Forget all the movies where the guy puts everything on the line and walks away a winner after hitting the jackpot. Probably you will not be able to follow the plan 100%, but you must learn to identify those items that are allowed to change slightly, and which ones to follow exactly as originally decided.
3. White and black stripes
Zebra. All players have periods when every bet brings a victory, a coincidence that allows for a short time to feel like the king of the world. The main thing is to realize that if you win a hundred out of a hundred, one day the lucky streak will come to an end, and continue to bet in the same mode, trying not to miss the moment when the white streak is replaced by a black one. Many players lose their bankroll and go into debt after a long winning streak. It is always impossible to win, and you always want to get your own back. In case you find yourself in such a situation – we advise you to rest for a couple of days, relieve your head, and then, with new strength, get back in line.
4. Emotion, faith and hope
Usually, novice players forget: they want to earn, not cheer for their favorite teams. As illogical as it may sound, it is better to withdraw from matches as a fan as much as possible, to assess the situation as dry and cold as possible. Try to eliminate the element of excitement and attachment to teams. Betting is not “cheering”, more about psychology.
5. Life and betting
You shouldn’t make betting a cult, even if you’ve decided to earn money with them. Wins are followed by defeats and vice versa, and life goes on. Even after losing the whole pot, remember, there is family, friends and real life. You don’t have to sacrifice, but it’s wise to combine the two. Good luck in this interesting endeavor!
