I’ve spent lots of time in the past researching teams, players, and the entire league trying to determine which bets are most reliable. I have spent plenty of money betting on the lines for many teams, including the Los Angeles Lakers.
There are a few valuable lessons that I would like to share with you if you plan to bet on sports.
- Don’t bet on your favorite team. Your passion and love for the team will provoke you to place bets based on heart and not logic.
- If the line looks too good to be true, it probably is.
- Check for injuries or suspensions.
- Take into account home court advantage.
- Make sure it’s not the second game of a back to back, especially on the road.
- Double check your schedule to make sure you are available to watch the game. And most importantly:
- HAVE FUN. Don’t place bets only to make money, place bets in order to make the games more fun and enjoyable to watch.
With all this said, betting on sports isn’t a bad thing. It actually tends to make you a more knowledgeable fan, a more informed enthusiast, and a more spirited viewer.
These theories apply whether you are involved in NBA basketball betting, college basketball betting, or even international basketball. Writing this short piece of advice for betting has really inspired me, thankfully, it’s Monday Night Football, let’s get started with building that account again!
