Enjoy Your Betting

Betting is a lot of fun and adds more spice to watching the footy. The exhilaration of cheering home your winning selection and boasting about it to your friends and workmates is part of what makes betting so exciting. If you're in it for other reasons such as becoming rich, then perhaps you should reconsider.

The first step to enjoying your betting is to not let it rule your life. Taking it too seriously can have a terribly negative impact on your life and it is NOT WORTH IT. If you lose your wife, your job and your lifestyle then you probably have nothing to spend the millions you are going to win on. Think about it!

The second step is to never bet more than you can afford. It's very hard to follow this rule for a number of reasons. If you're on a roll the basic instinct is to bet bigger to make more. If you're on a losing streak the basic instinct is to bet more to get your money back. Do NOT fall into these traps. Set aside a weekly, monthly or yearly budget for betting, and NEVER go overboard. Betting is another form of entertainment, and should be a part of your entertainment budget. When you set aside this budget, you have to be prepared to lose it all. If you are not prepared to lose it all then you should rethink your budget.

Thirdly, don't be too clever, and don't be too dumb. The more you know about your bet, the more likely you are to win. The more you leave it to chance, the less you are likely to win. Leaving your bet to chance is being too dumb - a good idea is to stick to betting on the team you support because you know more about them than any other team. You have a better idea how they are likely to perform under the circumstances they are in. Having said that, you have to be careful about the heart ruling the head. If your team loses you get a double- whammy.

Don't be too clever by putting your money on too many selections that are "sure to win". If 3 bets have a 80% chance of winning individually, then the chance of all of them winning is down to 50%, only a 1 in 2 chance.

Fourth, it's a good idea to use multiple bookmakers to get the best odds for your bet. It's very hard to manage an account at every bookmaker there is on the planet, but if you limit yourself to a handful such as the one's on SportsPunter you can go a long way to making your bets more profitable. SportsPunter provides a great odds comparision service from a handful of bookmakers all around the globe.

Because of their geographical differences, you can usually make an extra 20% on each bet you win throughout a year by selecting carefully from our bookmakers - and this could have a tremendous effect on your betting balance. If you're making more money, of course you're going to enjoy it more!

Lastly, another good idea to help enjoy your betting is to form a Punters Club Punters clubs are a great way to bring a group of friends or workmates together. You might even get your wife interested in the footy! Click Here to check out our section on forming a punters clubs and learn how to spice up your office!
