How to Win at Sports Gambling?

Sports gambling is all about skill. As a sports gambler, you must gather and analyze as much information as you can about a game, weigh the winning chances of each team, then compare your opinion to that of the oddsmaker's.

Though luck may play a role in the result of any single game, and will inevitably go against the you on occasion, it will balance out in the long run.

But winning at sports gambling is not about luck. Its about how prepared you are to invest the time and effort to become knowledgeable about the sports you gamble on, whether you can weigh all the factors in a cool, objective fashion, and whether you adopt a consistent, disciplined, long-term approach to sports gambling.

The bookmaker is simply a middle-man who operates on a small profit margin and, ideally likes to see half the money wagered on one team and half on the other, assuring a profit.

If too much of the money goes on one team, the bookmaker will move the line or point spread to encourage bets on the other team in an effort to balance his book. The person whom you must beat is the oddsmaker, and the oddsmaker's views on each team's chances.

Just by flipping a coin, you will be right 50% of the time. At odds of 10/11, only 52.4% of your wagers have to win for you to overcome the bookmaker's profit and break even. Thus, you only need a very small edge to win at sports gambling.

So you must do your homework and gamble selectively. Winning 55% of your bets is definitely achievable, and 60-65% is a realistic target. At those levels, you will have an extremely profitable and enjoyable hobby.
