How to become a professional sports gambler – Part 1Blog, Gambling Blog | sportpunter | February 19, 2010 at 1:58 pm
Everyone has a dream. Whether it is to be a rock star, a professional sportsperson, a star in a movie, a high profile business investor, or even a lotto winner.
All of the above dreams – except for the last one – requires a lot of work and lots of patience, time and money. Very rarely does one make the big time without putting in the hard yards.
TV has given us all the unrealistic assumption that everyone can make it without putting in a lot of work. Instant celebrities arise on TV shows all the time. Think of all the people who have won Australian, British, and American idol. Masterchef winners and X Factor champions. Susan Boyle is a great example of someone who has made it big with little effort, but most people realise that the winners of the above TV shows often have put in the big hard yards before their audition.
And it shows too. Judges on these shows can tell instantly if one has had classical or singing lessons, and how they move on the stage is more often than not an indication of their experience in the area.
Being a lotto winner is the exception. It’s the dream that everyone has because you don’t need to do any work at all. If lady luck is on your side, then you win and can afford a new house and car.
So many people around the world today want to make their dream a reality. However so many people around the world also want to do it with little or no effort. This is one reason why you need to do the hard yards if you are going to be a professional gambler.
Let’s think about this for a bit. Bookmakers work full time in the industry. They watch all the matches, analyse the injuries, and constantly discuss the teams and their potential. If you are not doing the same, then there is a good chance that you will not be as good at your craft as they are.
You will be behind the 8-ball. And pretty soon it will show in your balance. Sure you might have some good wins, but over the long term, time will tell.
So now that we have shown that it takes some time and hard work to be a successful professional gambler, what specifically does it require?
Well basically, to become a professional gambler you need to be an expert in money management, making bets, and predicting outcomes. All three are necessary to be successful. Without money management, you will soon lose your bank betting wildly on sports bets. Without expertise in making bets, you will find yourself not increasing your bank at all because of poor bookmaker selection despite having great tips. Without being an expert in predicting outcomes, you have little chance except through pure luck to make it in the professional sports gambling arena.
