When you like to place bets, you have to have a strategy for sports betting money management.
It's not enough to simply lay a wager whenever and however you feel like it. If you want it to be
anything more than a passing hobby, and if you want to be sure that you stay in the black, you need
a strategy to guide your way.
In some ways, the old days made betting money management easier. The only way to place a bet
was to be in direct contact with your local bookmaker, and the only way to pay was with cash.
Cash in hand was preferred, and unless you were a gentleman it was often demanded. This placed
natural limits on how much money was in play at any given moment, regardless of sport.
Then too the kinds of bets were simpler. Betting exchanges didn't exist. If you'd told the
bookie down at the horse track that someday his number one competitor was going to be an
internet casino on the Isle of Man he'd have looked at you as though you'd sprouted three
heads. These days its simply reality.
The flipside to that reality is that there are now so many different kinds of betting combinations
that dedicated study is required to understand them all. Bets which seem simple on the
surface can come back to really bite a chunk out of your pocketbook when you lose. There are also
more opportunities for you to lose, with accumulators and other multiple bet card programs
raising the stakes even as the odds get long.
In the heat of the moment and the peak of the season, it's easy to get carried away and over bet.
Online bookmakers can play into this impulsiveness. You can literally bet the house while
sitting in your living room at 4 in the morning, and there's no one around to talk you out of it if
you're not making a wise decision.
Thus, before you ever open your first bookmakers account, you will want to sit down and
consider your sports betting money management strategy. Have a good long thought about what
you would do if you won it big on long odds next week. Then be realistic about your usual patterns
of play, your profits or losses, and what you can really afford to do as you play the game.
The better you manage, the better your profits online and offline will be.
