Free Betting Advice – Bookmakers and Secrets – Basics

Bookmaker Management

The vast majority of you likely think of the bookmakers as the old enemy, cash thief, the Devil himself even!!

If you do, it follows that your likely one of the many millions of folk giving them cash, and getting little back. This is negative thinking, and any negative thinking in gambling leads to your demise.

So what can you do about it, and what difference does it make what you think of your bookmaker?

Well all my bookmakers are my friend; in reality somebody who gives me cash is a friend. Wouldn’t that be the same for you? As soon as you believe that the bookie is the kind man who supplies you with cash for a Saturday night out, or that latest kitchen appliance, then you’re on the road to improving your returns already.

Most gamblers think you can win thousands a day, and purchase a boat one week, and a new vehicle the next when you’re a pro, but you are dreaming, it takes hours of work to create a decent profit every month.

If you additionally think your friendly bookmaker will happily hand over thousands a day too you, guess what? You’ve got to be kidding. If you run a business, and you are giving the same customer cash every day for nothing, would you still do business with him? Sure you wouldn’t.

If you keep attempting to bankrupt a bookmaker, he will show you the respect you deserve for your approach, and shut your account. This is not bad nasty bookmaker, but common sense, he is attempting to run a business, and make a profit.

Now if you know you are likely to make money, and the bookmaker knows you are going to make money, you have too keep to an acceptable each week, and then he’ll be able to lay off your bets, and he will furthermore accept that the bets you put on are in addition supplying him with good info. This way you can have a decent association, although they could still limit your maximum bet. However, this method will not work with the Big 3 bookies, as they do not wish for any winners.

If working at home, you will need to plan your betting like a military mission for each bet, and spread it all around various bookies.

If you want to bet thousands, then the only answer is to do battle on the track, or on a betting exchange, and as soon as your making this much, you still have to use the same theory as above.

On Course Secrets

Just a quick tip, but one which ought to help you find extra winners while on the racecourse.

Before racing begins, hang around the bookies looking for any punters placing a nice wad of cash on a horse. If he/she is wearing a suit, it’s probably best ignoring them, as these are corporate men trying to impress their clients or boss, and likely don’t have a clue which end the head is on.

If they look like ordinary Joe Punter, but are betting big, they may be a pro. You are probably best keeping an eye on them for the first few races to make sure they do know what they are doing, and keep an eye on more than one, as professional gamblers are pretty rare.

Watch which racehorses they gamble on, and watch the race. If that horse wins, or runs well, watch to see which horse they bet on next. Again, watch the race, and the next one. After that, if you consider this person to have good expertise, you can follow what he does for the remainder of the day.

We don’t mind folk doing that, as we can’t hide from view what we do, although a few will get piddled off with being stalked! Don’t follow in our shadow though, as you will get a number of choice words, as you wouldn’t like being tailed by a strange looking person would you?

You can make contact with pros on the track, although they might not give you the days selections, the majority will offer you advice, and a number of pointers for the future.

Free Betting Advice – Festivals and Additional Tips – Basics

Horse Racing Festivals and Busy Racing Days

I’ve just recently researched this myself, as the BHA (British Horseracing Authority) have been messing around with the racing calendar over the previous few years, and so we currently have more racing than ever. This can cause problems on days were there is a load of racing, especially if you utilize a fixed stake adjusted on a daily basis. They have additionally been manipulating Handicap races in the bookies favour reducing the average strike rate by 2%-3% over the past few years.

I take a standard day as 1-4 meetings, and from 2004 summer racing now includes mostly 3 afternoon meetings, and 3 evening meetings. This is basically 2 days racing in one, and it is recommended you adjust the daily stake when the afternoon meetings have ended if time allows. With more AW (All weather) tracks than ever, we are in addition getting additional fixtures in the winter evenings.

Bank holidays will not be as crowded according to the BHA as in the past when you could have 16 fixtures, but the OFT (Office of Fair Trading) has since altered this. Still a bank holiday may possibly contain over 10 fixtures, and so is technically 2-4 racing days in one! In this situation if it makes you feel more comfortable reduce your stakes by up to 50%, win and lay. You might think you will miss out on potential profit, this is greed, remember patience and security is what makes a professional gambler. If you reduce the stakes, it protects you if it all goes pear-shaped on the day. I may well also reduce stakes in the course of sudden changes in going on any racing day, especially during a storm if the ground jumps from Good straight to Soft/Heavy.

Festivals are comparable to the above in that the competition is always much hotter than average, and is not a standard daily betting environment. So meetings such as Royal Ascot, Cheltenham Festival, Aintree Grand National meetings, are best if you lower your stakes.

Additional Betting Tips

It’s best to hold more than one bookmaker/exchange account so you can compare odds.

The Scoop 6 is worth bearing in mind once it is over �50,000, as it is not always won by the pro-syndicates.

If you have any doubt about a method bet, don’t put money on, you’ll have another prospect soon.

If you do realize you are losing, and have almost lost the betting bank, discontinue betting and re-adjust everything. You ought to never lose the betting bank if you have the maths correct.

Generally speaking, your initial year at being a professional gambler will be hit and miss as you discover your feet, but you will then have goals and an adequate amount of experience to progress further the following year. It took me in the region of 3 years to get into top gear, but back in the late 90’s we did not have the instantaneous information we do now.

Feel free to broadcast your own tips, systems, and advice on my forum, this additionally helps you to correct errors earlier so you don’t look like a complete fool, and will not only help yourself in the long term, but others as well.

Never over bet on the betting exchanges when laying. By that I mean don’t offer 7/1 for a 4/1 shot, 2/1 for an evens, etc, You should in no way really bet over the odds of more than 15%, but your best trying to keep it to 20% or less. This doesn’t have to be strict, as long as the 10% on some and 20% on others average out. To simplify things, it’s best to never to lay over odds of 10.5.
