    Money management coupled with betting too many games is basically the tl;dr of the article. Could not agree more, betting responsible unit sizes and limiting your bets are the best insurance against getting buried. You won't magically become a long term winner with good money management but you will at least limit your losses. Wish I had taken this advice to heart when I first heard it many years ago.

    Betting too many games is a major major culprit

    And of course chasing and betting way more than you can afford to lose

    I am still a big believer of betting the same amount on every game but most of us do not gamble to win we gamble for action

    Well the problem with money management is that we all are in such a whole we keep telling ourselves the bigger the bet the bigger the win and the closer we all are to getting even. But when you keep betting like that you will lose eventually we all know this but we like the thrill cause it's the GREATEST adrenaline in the world to have your whole bankroll on a game.

    If you have the urge to get money back you have lost you have no shot as you will end up Dead broke.

    We all have that urge from time to time but you cannot act on it

    Also any serious gambler or stock trader keeps accurate spreadsheets in excel knowing exactly how much money you're winning or losing and what type of success you're having an different categories

    I agree with everything in the article except knowledge in sports betting. The books have done all of that
    for you. They have experts who know how to set lines and odds. If a key player is out, it's built into the odds.
    What they don't know, is what team is going to show up, from that, they take their juice.(and your money if
    you are on the wrong side)

    The article doesn't state about having a plan either. Having a game plan and money management is key to success
    no matter the venue. From your own personal life to the casino.

    If you have no respect for money in your everyday life, guaranteed you will lose in sports betting.

    Keeping detailed records of your bets and win loss records keeps you on top of your game also.

    IDK if this is still available on line, but this system "smart money law" has helped my ROI greatly.

    Stay away from totals (in ALL sports) and you will automatically increase your win rate. 100% serious.
