Step 5

Use psychology to determine the winner. You shouldn’t bet on a game just to have more money on the line.

Create a “real” value for each team. The media will often over publicize certain teams that haven’t yet played any difficult teams. In nearly all competitive events, your mindset is the most important thing. Certain teams will go through a season getting lucky and winning games they should have lost. You should always look through the lines and find the flaws made by the handicapped. They bet on games they aren’t sure of and lose money. Don’t pay attention to the media hype for certain teams and create a real value for each team based on strength of schedule.

You can be an average athlete with a lot of “heart” and make more of an impact than a player with high potential and low energy.

Don’t bet on every game. You have to prepare yourself for this by leaving yourself a large cushion incase you lose. There is a lot of variance in sports betting. You can take advantage of this by watching which teams are getting the most fluke plays and have a value higher than they should.
