Betting Strategy

My holiday is nearly over now and so is our series of articles on how to bet like a pro.

We'll have a tip online tomorrow as normal then on Monday I'll be back hopefully refreshed hopefully with something to say 🙂

For today we need to put together what we've talked about this week into a Betting Strategy.

Successful betting is a long-term venture. Unless you do a one-off bet on the Grand National for example, once a year, you will probably be betting now and for years to come.

If this is the case, and you are not just betting for fun, then you are probably betting using it as a form of investment and moneymaking venture.

If so, you should treat it like a business and become disciplined.


Keep your eyes on your goal. Stick to what you started and don't give up.

Be Deliberate

Be deliberate. Don't try something out half-heartedly seeing if it will work or not. Find something, research it, and execute your strategy.

Be Patient

Patience is essential. For the impatient person, a week of losing bets will likely finish him or her off.

If you have researched your system well, and you know it has a good profitable history, and during that history you have seen similar losing runs, you should also realistically expect those losing runs to happen to you at some stage now or in the future.

During those losing runs it is difficult to stay focused, but if you have the patience that enables you to know that if you remain consistent and stick it out, you will most likely see the losing run pull through into a profit, you increase your chances of success.

Strategy Implementation

When you have got all of the basic fundamental foundations in place, it is time then to structure a profit strategy.

The profit strategy really goes hand-in-hand and formulates part of your vision.

The reason I have left the strategy to the end is because it is no point operating profit strategy without having the essential foundations in place first, because it doesn't matter how good the strategy is, if you're foundations are not rock solid, you almost certainly won’t go on to make a profit.

The strategy I would recommend is one that spreads your risk, and maximises your potential for success.

Let's assume you have a £1000 bank.

You should now look for at least five well researched systems for you to use. The systems should satisfy the following rules: –

– Profitable betting history – 3 years minimum
– The author should have a good reputation, and be well spoken of amongst professionals in the industry
– The system (the type of bet) should fit within your comfort zone

Let's assume we have found five systems that we want to run with. We should now divide our £1000 and into five lots (£200 per lot). These £200 lots will become our small individual banks.

We need to stake according to the way the systems advise, but only if that is within our emotional comfort zone.

The final part of the strategy is the most important part. It might sound like crazy advice, but it is essential advice, and one that should be applied to betting all the time.

You now have five lots of £200. Each of these is a bank in itself. Each of these is a small bank, and you must be willing to lose all of the £200. Before you even start betting you have to determine in your own mind the following: –

“I will invest this £200 into this betting opportunity and no matter what happens at any time now or in the future, I will continue betting with this bank even if it means I lose the entire amount”

If you can't apply this, then the £200 bank is too high, and you are emotionally too attached to it.

If you start betting with that small bank, and you pull out during a losing streak, what you are saying in effect is that you can't bear to lose any more of your bank, so you will pull out to protect your bank losing any more.

The problem with pulling out is that what stage do you pull out at? If you determine that you will stick with it regardless of whether you lose your entire bank or not, then you give the system the full opportunity to make a comeback and launch you into profit.

If you break your £1000 bank into five lots, then you do this five times. By doing this five times, you increase the opportunity for all systems to perform, thereby increasing the chances for your success.

If you have the discipline and fundamental foundations set in place, and you followed the strategy that is outlined above, you have set yourself up ready to win.

This is how you become one of the 2%. This is how the 2% of successful bettors achieve their results. They are determined, focused, disciplined and have strategy set in place. You too can follow in their steps if you are willing to go down this process.

I wish you all the very best in your betting and I hope that for many of you this article will result in changing you from having a losing bank into consistently winning bank.

Yesterday both Maisies Moon and Downhill Dancer ran below expectations.

For today we have a selection from a current live community trial “Goal Market Profits”.

Friday's NAP comes from Ireland and the game between UC Dublin and Derry City. UC Dublin's last 7 at home have all gone over 2.5 goals with 5 of those also going over 3.5 goals. They sit top of the goals table with 74% of their 23 games featuring 3 or more goals. They also have the worst defence in the league with 52 goals conceded. Visitors Derry are the leagues highest scorers both overall and away from home. The last 3 meetings between these sides have finished 4-2, 6-2 and 2-1. Over 2.5 goals is a standout 3/4 with BetVictor.

Horse Racing Selection Courtesy of the Betting Insiders Club.

Yesterday the first selection was pulled out of its intended engagement leaving just Madrasa who proved to be disappointing in finishing unplaced despite attracting market support into 6/4 from the early 5/2.

For today we turn to a Sir Mark Prescott trained 3yo gelding who has been noted in our “Well-Handicapped horses” community thread by author Jon Gibby.

Slip Of The Tongue lacks a turn of foot and needs to force the pace and it was understandable LTO that he was tapped for toe in a race run at a slow early pace. He now has a staggering nine entries over the coming five days (is that a record?) and that is a sure sign that connections mean business! He may well win today and then follow up under a penalty. Hopefully we will see a change of tactics and a forcing ride employed!

Slip Of The Tongue (2000 Ling) 11/2 EW Coral
