Sports Betting Don’t List

Hey, doesn’t it seem like anybody and everybody throws up a Do This list to make the most money with your sports betting? How about another take on this? How about if we approach this from the other side of the table? If you think about it, even for a little bit, you will quickly realize that sometimes the opposite approach is exactly what you need to see the true picture.

With that in mind, let’s go ahead and jump right in here. Start with the most basics of basics, the ground floor of sports betting wisdom, if you will. Don’t lose sight of the fact that any type of sports betting, whether it’s with the guys at work or at any of the numerous online sports books that are available, is a form of gambling.

Gambling in and of itself is neither good nor bad. It’s only ever about you and how you act. Which brings us right up to the very next Don’t on our list. Don’t bet more than you can afford to lose. You see, the weird thing about online sports bets is that you aren’t actually handling the money. So, if you aren’t careful, you may in fact lose sight of the fact that you are placing bets with money you had to work for. In other words, you are putting your hard earned money on the line, so don’t spend more than you would if you were out at the track.

Incidentally, that brings yet another Don’t into play. Really, this is related to the last don’t, but it’s a bit more dangerous. Here it is: Don’t max out on your credit cards to place an online sports bet. The last place you want to end up is with a credit card bill for a bet that went the wrong way.

Moving right along, another don’t involves your sports betting strategy (or the lack thereof). In this case, Don’t bet higher percentages on sports bets you happen to “like” more than other options. Follow your regular sports betting strategy (you do have a sports betting strategy, right?). Keep in mind that patience and discipline really do pay off in the long run.

As you can see, sports betting is about knowing what to do and what not to do. Of course, knowing is only the beginning, from there you have to act on what you know. Now you know the list of the most common sports betting Don’ts, go ahead and put these on your action list.
