Sports Betting and Decision Making: A Dual Process Perspective


I have frequently heard it said,” You cannot win bet on sports.” But the truth is sports betting is one of the many types of gambling that you CAN win at. The problem is there are so numerous factors which need to be taken into account, it can be overwhelming.  

There are playing conditions, injuries, home or away games, players’ health, defense, offense, past performance, trainers, significance of match, and battles to name many just to calculate precise results.  

What are The Odds?  

Most people betting on sports are not apprehensive that you only need to win 52.5% of your bets to break indeed. 56% of winners make you successful. However, you’re going to make an enormous sum of money, if you can manage to average above 56%.   Now 56% does not sound like much, does it? just over half your bets.  

The rest is discipline, money operation, and no doubt, a good selection system. But let’s be clear, there’s no magic bullet, no quick and easy system. or is there?  

Is your motivation Fun or money?  

It can surely be delightful and veritably instigative to win, especially when you’ve got a big bet riding on the game. Or perhaps you just lost a game and decided to double up on the coming one to try and” get even.”   still, I am sure you know all too well that more frequently than not you lost the 2nd game too, if you’ve ever tried this tactic.

Now you are broke, starting over, erecting up new finance, and hoping for a better outgrowth in the coming time. But as you know, hope isn’t a winning strategy.   This kind of heart-stopping action isn’t for me. For my money, I prefer a further predictable type of wagering whether it’s betting on sports or any other form of betting.

Taking Gambling Out of Sports Betting   A winning bettor always tries to take the adventure out of the game. Each bet is a calculated threat. There’s no magic system that will bring in thousands of dollars overnight.   Taking down a steady yearly profit, working only 5 minutes a day IS the only way. And if you let your account multiply for many months, ahead long (months not times), you’ll reach a point where you could be bringing in hundreds or indeed thousands of dollars of profit each month. now that is magical.
