Sure, we all dream of landing a bet big enough to send us into an early retirement. But long term success is the main aim and staying disciplined is the most pivotal part of it.
Losing streaks happen to even the most successful bettors and there are too many external factors for them not to. But the key to sensible betting is avoiding revenge betting. Losing money often leads to an urge to get it back, but those thoughts often lead to reckless and uneducated betting. In situations like these, it is important to remember that not only will there be better betting opportunities coming up, but also sometimes the best bet can be not to bet. Do you really know anything about the Copa Libertadores fixture you’re scouring the markets on because you’ve just lost a bet five minutes ago?
Avoid betting for the sake of it. Some sporting events will naturally attract more betting activity but that doesn’t mean you should feel the need to be involved, especially if you are going to go in blind. Sometimes it is best to stick to what you know and what you are comfortable with.
