Sometimes the Best Sport Bet is the One You Never Place
If you lost that first sport bet with a bad beat read this article from start to finish before considering placing that second sport bet. I am now your voice of reason. No sports betting system in the world will save you from making a rash decision about the next bet you place just to recoup your losses from the game before. Don’t place that next sport bet….at least not this second anyway.
Sure, that beat was inconceivable. It happens. It comes with the sports betting territory. Did you freak out when Research In Motion’s stock price was cut in half? You didn’t, did you? Even though it chopped your 401k up a bit? Well then, chalk it up as one loss and one loss only. There will be even more losses just as there will be more wins–some of those wins you should never have won either. Consider yourself even.
Of all the sports betting systems I have created in my lifetime, the sports betting systems that have worked the best had nothing to do with the actual game and everything to do with how I would react to the result. Yes, there are mathematical systems that are designed to win you 60% of all of the bets you place within that system, but the most important sports betting systems will win more than they lose. I am always baffled by people who can’t seem to come to grips with this fact, but I digress. Take solace in the fact that tomorrow, you will probably come out a winner! Every you place should be met with this frame of mind.
Now, you didn’t think I was going to be THAT harsh on you, did you? There are some of you who can’t resist. I know who you are. Been there, done that. For those of you who are going to chase that loss no matter what I preach, here is a strategy. Take one third of your normal bet size and place it on the team you like in game two. This way, you have action on the game but it won’t destroy you. Do NOT chase like this every night or you will lose every sport bet in the long run.
should not be difficult, but they should be implemented in a manner that protects you from yourself when they need to. Overcome enough of those bad beats and you will come out on top every time. If you are not using a sports betting system and betting blind, well, good luck. You’re gonna need it. For those of you who have taken the initial first step of implementing systems remember–sometimes the most important sport bet is the one you don’t place.
