If you want to become a consistent winning sports betting enthusiast, then you should know that it starts with developing a wining mindset, long before you make your first online betting or casino sports wager.
Thanks to this expert look at the handful of keys to a winning mindset, you’re going to be much better off when you go to make your next sports wager.
Here are some fundamental aspects of developing winning betting mindset.
Here’s a Closer Look At The The Keys To Developing A Winning Mindset
Develop Your Own Method!
Are you more successful making ATS bets or Over/Under Total wagers? Do you have better results betting on home or away teams? Do you cash in more consistently when you bet on favorites or underdogs?
These are questions that only you can answer, but the point is that you need to understand what kind of wagers you are most successful on and develop your own wining style no matter what that style may be.
Track all of your picks, both good and bad and look deep inside your statistical data to completely develop your own betting method.
Keep it ‘One Hundred’!
As today’s young people are fond of saying…always ‘keep it 100’ with yourself. This means being a realistic bettor as opposed to a wishful one. While it is important to understand that losses are part of the business, it’s also equally important to know ‘why’ your wager was a losing proposition.
Did the team that caused you to lose have a ‘lucky’ performance that you need to simply shrug off or was your wager doomed from the start?
In hindsight, do you feel like you made a ‘stupid’ wager or was it a solid bet that just failed to pan out because the law of averages? Most importantly, you need to understand that a losing wager doesn’t have to affect your next bet…just make sure you keep it 100 with yourself.
Bet for Profit Only, Not Fun!
It might sound strange, but believe it or not, some people like to make wagers for ‘fun’
Ask yourself if you betting for excitement and fun or to make money?
People that are making bets for fun and excitement are less structured and more casual with their wagers as opposed to bettors that are looking to make a profit.
Betting for fun increases your chances of losing, so make sure you are betting to make a profit. Online sports betting is a business and you need to view it that way and adopt a professional approach.
Think Oven…Not Microwave!
If you’re looking to make money on sports betting then you need to think long term like a conventional oven and not go for the quick win and short term ‘microwave’ victory.
Slow and steady victories will win the race if you’re a regular sports bettor…not one or two wins that are sandwiched around a string of costly losses. Of course, this can often be easier said than done since today’s microwave society is full of people who want and expect to get what they want – right now!
Play Small Ball!
When you’re a new bettor, any victory feels absolutely fantastic. However, after time, small wins just don’t give you the same feeling of exuberance that you once got as a less experienced bettor. Don’t make the mistake of throwing more cash on certain games simply because you want to cash in big!
A weekly ‘small ball’ approach helped me win big and win consistently many moons ago and it can do the same for you!
Manage Your Bankroll!
Manage your betting bankroll as if your life depended on it. Don’t make huge wagers in an effort to recoup a handful of losses in one fell swoop and don’t ‘over-bet’ what you know deep down inside that you can’t afford to lose.
Last but not least, like a great athlete, you’ve got to believe! If you want to be a consistent sports betting winner then you had better start thinking like one and believe you can be one. Of course, any of the aforementioned factors will decide if you’re a winning sports bettor or not, but like most things in life, it starts with believing!
