Professional bettors don’t look at betting with the thought that they will win. When measuring the probabilities, they also weigh the possibility of losing the amount invested, measuring the risk first of all.
Beginners tend to think they have to win, whatever the cost. However, this can end up going very badly, resulting in the loss of your entire bankroll. That is why professional bettors, when placing their bets, always pay attention to the value they bet in order not to compromise their bankroll.
If you want to open up a whole new world when it comes to betting, you must learn to deal with losing in order to look at betting from a more serious perspective. You must take a careful approach, aiming to win but always taking into account the possibility of losing.
When setting your betting, you must be aware of the impact that a loss may have on your bankroll. You need to make sure that this bet meets all the requirements to be considered a “good bet” at its best and not to put the entire strategy at risk. You should not bet taking into account the emotional connection you have with a team, for example.
When betting on the favorite of the match, you should study very well if this is really the big favorite and not just look at the name of the club. It can be a big club, but any modifications at the tactical, technical level or absences of players can influence who will be the winner of the match. When choosing a match and a type of bet, you should ask yourself if that bet makes sense or if it is only the optimism of winning that is influencing your choice.
In short, well-controlled optimism is good and can be a good help in bad times. Still, having only in mind that you are going to win and win can limit your thinking and lead to unrealistic bets that will only make you lose.
You must be constantly wondering if the bets you are placing are truly good or if it is the optimism and excitement of winning that is driving you to place these bets. You must go little by little, there should be no shame in losing, as long as you learn from it and then knew how to recover. This will only make it a better sporting and successful bet.
