Knowing oneself is probably the best sports betting advice that Beyond the Bets could give anyone, especially if things are going unexpectedly good, which does of course happen every now and then. It is even more important to have just a couple good points of reference close to hand, just to see one doesn't start to stray.
The best sports betting advice that one needs to take on board is never, never, never, bet with what can't afford to be lost. No matter how much of a certainty one's convinced that they are betting on, all the more reason to firmly stick to this rule. It's critically important for two reasons.
Firstly if this all-important bet that can't lose actually wins, and one has put money on it that they can't afford to lose, the chances of them taking the money and running are slim to none. Lucks got to be in, maybe they'll strike lucky again, hey this is human nature and the way the mind works!
Now on the other hand, should they take the lump sum of money that they can't afford to lose, maybe it's for the house payment, car payment, rent, food, or even cloths for the kids, and their selection straight out loses, this now has the potential to almost certainly create even more pressure.
Now they're looking for solutions to recover back their stake money as well as the original profit they had intended. This too has been well documented as a road to ruin. The Golden Rule always is this, One should never bet what they can't afford, absolutely any exceptions.
The key to everything in life is discipline. Whether one likes to admit it or not. One can pick any topic they wish to put under the microscope and they will discover if it has lead to something fruitful it was because of exercised discipline. Even if it was nothing to do with sports betting.
Let's also take on board the old sayings, even when betting with the best sportsbooks. Just like buying the odd affordable lottery ticket each week, it won't break the bank and at least underlying expectations are real! Keep life simple, keep it fun!
