Who hasn’t dreamed of living out on sports betting that you are a fan of? It’s an almost universal will.
So universal, that in facebook there are various dream sellers that offer their sure bets, certain bets, consultancies, prognostics sale, among the more diverse services that promise being able to make you win money and survive in sports betting.
The first bad news that I’m going to give you is that 99% of this fan pages are a lie, fake, they just want to grab your money and then disappear.
Many of them only update the results after the games, fake records, disappear after you pay, in short, the vast majority are scammers and opportunists.
So, if you dream of living on sports betting or at least win some money betting you need to dedicate yourself and not wait for someone to sell you magic beans.
Don’t believe in magic beans.
There are different kinds of bettors and I’m not talking about modalities like trader, punter, etc. But in the way to approach the universe of sports betting. This is the first thing you must decide:
- The recreational bettor – this type of bettor doesn’t care too much about informing about absences in the team, game conditions or latest news. Bank management is also secondary. The interest of this type of bettor is as is terminology indicates, to have fun, watch a game with a bet made and of course win some money, but the act of betting isn’t based in a professional methodology or in an analytical rigor. This type of bettor, who is the majority in the universe of sports betting, prioritizes the ludic part in online sports betting, he wants to see his heart team, a derby, the national team, a big match, etc;
- The professional bettor – Forget if you are going to live or not out of sports betting. The professional bettors are distinguished by approaching the universe of sports betting in a professional way, with methodology, rigor, seriousness and study. For them it isn’t about a form of fun but rather to extract the maximum profit that sports betting can offer. So, concepts like value, paper betting, bank management and incessant search for information are common protocols in this type of bettor.
It is worth saying that neither form is right or wrong nor is it better or worse. They are different ways that each one has to approach sports betting. No one is obliged to be a recreational bettor or professional bettor. Both are perfectly understandable.
Just one caveat, if you want to be a recreational bettor there’s no use waiting for professional results from betting.
Sports betting will give you exactly what you will give them.
So, if you want to have fun, have fun, but don’t expect more than that.
Being a recreational or professional bettor has nothing to do with surviving or not from sports betting.
Of course everyone who survives from sports betting is professional, but every professional doesn’t have to necessarily survive exclusively from sports betting. That is a very common mistake that analysts make.
Professionalism is about a professional approach and what is the objective with sports betting.
And how do you approach the universe of sports betting?
