Less knowledge of odds and past statistcs of game

I notice something pretty frustrating every time when I talk to my friends who bet.

As you know, millions of people bet every day and you also probably hear a lot of time, that 98% of all people lose all the time.

Most of them love sport and most of them know how to place a bet but only a few understand what are the odds, what is probability or even how to turn winning percentages into the odds.Most of them are looking for someone who will make them rich quickly but only a few understand that nobody can make you rich, except you.

Most of them think that the only thing they need are so-called winning picks, but only few understand, that finding good picks is just small piece of whole story.Most of them think that they will win bets if they will know who will win the game, but only few understand that finding the value and at the end beating the closing line value is important to win on the long- run.

Most of them are still naive and think, that they will beat bookmakers just by reading news, watching games and because of the love for sports, but only a few understand, that on the other side we have bookmakers, who are better and better every year, who use complex algorithms and using statistics is crucial if you want to even start thinking to beat them.

They will usually act very emotionally when they lose or win and they will usually jump from site to site, from handicapper to handicapper with he hope, that they will find someone, who will make them rich.Unfortunately, their attempts aren’t successful, and I hate to see the look on their faces when they realize that sports betting is not working. The only problem is  not comparing the odds with past statistics of  the game. 



They spent months searching for someone who will make good bets for them, did their best to understand sports betting, but there is so many bad information on the internet and it is hard to find what truth is?

 They may even have spent thousands of dollars on subscriptions. All of this will usually lead to big disappointment, no matter if they find winning bettor. It is a general problem of sports betting world and almost impossible to follow other people’s bets.

I spent years wondering why most people are so naive when it comes to sports betting. Why they have created wrong illusion and why they think that following other people’s work without any effort from them will bring them great results.

And I finally found the answer.


I was talking with my friend, who is fitness trainer and I asked him, how to get 6-PACK ABS.Most people believe, that if they will go to the gym, and if they will train hard, that they will lose weight, get 6-pack abs.

But of course, this is not true. I always remember his words,  that the training is only 30% of whole story and that most important thing is what you eat. 70% of everything is food. I think you are getting what want to make you understand.The problem with people, who train hard, but still don’t get enough results was wrong focus, because they didn’t pay attention to what is most important. And this was the food.

In general more and more people understand this now.

Unfortunately, in sports betting most people still focus on that 30% (picks). They will focus on finding other people’s picks trough forums, portals, betting services, twitter. Some of them will focus on researching games, reading news, watching games at night… but of course in most cases and especially on the long run, this is not working. Most bettors on the internet don’t have the edge anyway and they show only short term results and build marketing on that. A lot of naive people will jump on this.

The problem is – WRONG FOCUS.

To make a bet or to find so-called pick is the last thing you do. There is a lot of other things to learn before you place your bet. There is many other things that are important to understand in order to have chance to win at sports betting.

And I like to say, that picks are 30%, like the training when it comes to fitness and 70% are other things that we must understand.

If you lose all the time, this is probably because you had wrong focus. You are focusing on 30%, but missing other 70%.

Betting without strategy, constantly following other people’s picks in dynamic sports betting world, where the odds are changing every minute and betting without any statistics at all will lead to disappointment.continue next part coming soon
