In sports betting, strategy is what wins money. Even the books have a strategy, which is to get both sides of the bet to accept a monetary disadvantage as often as it can do so. Your strategy will be to avoid bets that require you to accept a disadvantage, and focus on bets that give the monetary advantage to you.
A mediocre handicapper with a good strategy will beat a good handicapper with a bad strategy. Good strategy has nothing to do with handicapping, and everything to do with winning. You have to limit yourself to the best bets, and leave the rest for the suckers and gamblers.
Winning is about counting the money in the long term, not counting wins and losses. While that seems obvious, the majority of sports bettors are fixated on their winning percentage under the false perception that a good winning percentage will lead to money to count.
There is only one thing that determines your winning percentage and it is NOT handicapping skill!
Fair warning: One of the things you will have to do is accept that you will lose more bets than you win using these strategies. Soon enough you will understand that the search for a high winning percentage is the fastest way to lose money because it leads to taking sucker bets and those that the book has an obvious, built-in advantage on.
While you are losing more of your bets, you will be making more money. That’s just the way the lines work when you play them correctly.
When you are a sports investor and NOT a sports gambler, you will then understand that what counts is the money that you make and NOT the winning percentage!
