Sports gambling is a mammoth industry and the top football sportsbooks are getting rich. Its estimated that gamblers spend $50 billion annually in the US alone; just on football. How much are you making, are you getting rich? There is something about football that every gambler loves. Football is more fun to gamble than any other sport, the action, the excitement, it draws a player in.
There are sharp players and there are rookies.
Who are the sharp players, who are the rookies?
Rookies are those players that although they are called rookies, they are not rookies. They have been playing for years, they love the action and they live for having a buck or two on a game to make it more exciting. Who doesn’t? There are a lot of games every week and some of them can be downright horrible. However, try throwing $50 or $100 on the game and see just how horrible it is. Laying a little change on a game makes it fun, and gives you a much bigger reason to watch. The problem for rookies is simply put; they play like rookies! These are they guys who bet without conducting any research, they go into a game knowing nothing and betting on a feeling or because they like the team. They bet with their heart or a gut feeling. More often than not; they lose. These types of players usually end up the season winning around 45% of the time.
Sharp players go into every season having a plan and a well-built plan. They have spent countless hours doing their research and knowing who is a good bet and who is a bad bet based on trends, statistics, streaks, how a team plays on the road, how they perform at home, how they play in bad weather and on the list goes… Sharp players win and they win a lot.
