When we hear the words sports betting or sports gambling we automatically have negative thoughts running through our minds.We always hear the stories where someone lost control and lost everything.They lose their house, jobs and their families due to gambling which is the sad side, but for those that actually treat it as an investment opportunity, it can be a very profitable endeavor.
There are really 3 types of sports bettors that fall into the following categories:
1.The addicts – These are the gamblers that have no control over their betting and tend to lose everything.They are in it for the action and whether they win or lose they like the feeling of always having action.It goes without saying this is not where we should be focusing our energies.
2.The Casual Bettor – These are the people that like to put a few bucks down every Sunday during the football season.They win some weeks and lose some and really don’t make any money.Usually at the end of the season they are just about even.They are doing it mostly for fun while they watch the games on TV .
3.The Professional – These are the guys that we really don’t hear that much about, but they fall into the top 2% of all sports bettors and the ones that actually make money season after season, year after year.These are the ones we can really learn from.
So what separates the professionals sports bettors from the crowd? Well basically they take sports betting a lot more seriously than the average gambler.Below are the characteristics of a professional: .
•Sports Betting is not gambling to them, they treat it as any other investment opportunity.
• They have multiple accounts with different on line sports books to always get the best lines .
