Sports Betting Sucks: Why Do I Keep Losing?

If you find yourself saying that sports betting sucks, then you really need to learn sports betting secret #3.

Sports Betting Secret #3: Control Your Emotions

As I said earlier, this is something that is much easier said than done. This is the part that kills most sports bettors. Sports betting, in theory, should be 100% logical. You set some rules and you follow them 100% of the time. However, it can be very difficult not to get upset if you are losing; especially if you are betting a lot of money.

But if you understand the law of averages, you’ll know that losing streaks sometimes happen just like winning streaks. Losing money can be a very emotional thing for people. As much as I advise people not to, they often gamble money they can’t afford to lose. NEVER DO THAT. Then they start making panic bets hoping to get lucky, and that almost never works.

You have to set up your betting system so that you don’t let your emotions get the best of you. This includes proper money management so that you do not gamble with money that you cannot afford to lose. This also includes sticking to the system and committing to only take bets that the system instructs you to take. That way you can let go of your emotions about gaming. You want to run your sports betting like a business, not entertainment.

I’ve found that simply starting to view my sports betting objectively as a business has helped me completely separate my emotions from gambling. And right around the time I was able to realize this, I really started to become much more successful as a sports bettor. I am a firm believer that mastering your emotions so you can handle the ups and downs really separates the sports bettors who make big money from those who don’t.
