    1. bet every game on the board
    2. call your cousin Lou & ask what he thinks
    3. If you lose $500 play $1000 on the next, you gotta win sometime!
    Well, gotta go. Public Library is closing & I gotta get back to the shelter before lights out

    1. don't scalp your indian. not a great idea to bet something 2 different ways at the same shop. they hate it.

    2. fade the public. after about a month into the season when it's less of an info game. not blindly, but it's a bad idea to be on public dogs for sure.

    3. try to figure out which teams are going to be really bad and limit the number of bets you put on them throughout the season. I lost over 60% of my bets on the Clippers for 8 years. last year I focused on ending the madness, figured out their team tendencies and did better than 60% on them last year through their last game. I may bet on some of the Nets totals this year, but I'm not going to waste a lot of time and energy trying to figure out if they will lose by 9 instead of 11.

    4. learn to beat multiple sports and multiple subsets within those sports. 2nd halves are highly exploitable. solid info destroys first quarter lines in some situations. some very silly dog moneylines hit the screen. if one has an advantage in multiple subsets one can pick and choose higher percentage wagers, ignore marginal +EV situations, and maintain decent volume. avoiding variance makes things a lot easier long term. If I think something is 50/50 and I can get +105 I'm probably not betting it. sounds silly to the math guys, but there is better stuff out there almost every day. the last thing someone starting out needs to get involved with is the psychological trauma of inevitable losing streaks. 50/50 stuff is going to go 2-7 far too often, it can be argued that even though it is mathematically +EV to bet these...in actuality the grind makes them unprofitable if it affects someone psychologically. quite a few of these games moving around pk are a bit of a coin-flip. Pitt/Cin comes to mind.

    6. set realistic goals. money management is the #1 factor in any type of investment. I rarely have more than 25% of total bankroll outstanding on a day's action. I would rather short-change my advantage than deal with a really bad day. the sun always rises in the morning, there are always other games on the horizon that moving forward I can exploit. you will lose at least 13 games in a row at some point, it's just a matter of when. 15% is achievable consistently in every sport every year betting a relatively low percentage of bankroll on each event. consistency trumps.

    you sure seem to spend a big chunk of time in < worthless > threads.


    8. capitalizing the first word of every sentence takes up valuable time that could be spent researching games and posting in best set of rules threads at SBR. one can fit a half-dozen extra games in each year not reaching for the shift key.

    9 etc.
    10 etc.
    Please keep comments respectful/constructive criticism only please.
    OK this is a rough draft so i will be editing as i get feedback so opinions are welcome.

    OK now i will be brave enough to post my 10 rules for sports betting now.
    Remember this is a exercise to help all willing members make
    better decisions when sports betting.
    RULE#
    #1 NEVER GET ATTACHED TO BETTING ON SPECIFIC TEAMS OR SPORTS: Example the colts have been doing great for me so i am going to ride them to the bank all season: or i am sticking to football because i don't know much about basketball.
    Remember it's a game of odds not sport.


    #2 ALWAYS LISTEN TO YOUR GUT: IF YOU HAVE A BAD FEELING ABOUT THE BET DON'T BET!IF HAVE A GOOD FEELING ABOUT THE BET BET IT!

    #3 NEVER GO ON TILT: MEANING GETTING ANGRY WHEN YOU LOSE A BET OR MAKING FOOLISH DECISIONS LIKE DOUBLING DOWN, OR AN I'LL SHOW THEM BOOKIES ATTITUDE! "AN ANGRY MIND IS A LOSING MIND"

    #4 ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT SPORTS BETTING IS THE ONLY FORM OF GAMBLING WHERE YOU CAN USE TRUE LOGIC AND NOT HAVE TO RELY SOLELY ON LUCK LIKE ALL OTHER FORMS! YOU HAVE A VAST AMOUNT OF INFORMATION ABOUT THE INVESTMENT YOUR ABOUT TO MAKE AT YOUR FINGER Tips USE IT!

    #5 MODERATE YOUR HIGHS AND LOWS: WHEN YOUR ON A STREAK DON'T GET THE ATTITUDE THAT YOUR THE KING AND YOU'LL NEVER LOSE AGAIN!"Eat a huge serving of humble pie" WHEN YOU LOSE DON'T GET DOWN ON YOURSELF AND SAY THAT'S IT I'M TAKING THE BRIDGE! JUST CALM YOURSELF AND SAY TO YOURSELF OH WELL I CANT WIN THEM ALL OR ANALISE ALL YOUR DECISIONS AND SEE IF YOU MADE A MISTAKE OR I,LL DO BETTER TOMORROW. Definition of insanity:"someone who does the same thing over and over again expecting a different result"

    #6 DON'T WATCH THE GAMES OR SCORES: UNLESS YOU ARE WINNING OR HAVE A GOOD FEELING ABOUT YOUR CHANCES IT IS NOT WORTH THE HELL YOU'LL PUT YOURSELF THROUGH "LIKE A WILD STALLION RUNNING TOWARDS A BURNING STABLE!" REMEMBER THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT AN OUTCOME OF A GAME BY PAYING ATTENTION TO IT.

    #7 NEVER RISK A GREAT DEAL OF MONEY ON POOR ODDS:
    LIKE PARLAY'S&FUTURES. TEASERS OF MORE THAN TWO TEAMS. JUST BET SMALL AMOUNTS FOR THE FUN OF IT NOT CARING IF YOU LOSE SO THAT WHEN YOU DO WIN IT'S LIKE A CHRISTMAS PRESENT UNEXPECTED.

    #8 DON'T BECOME ADDICTED: EVERYONE KNOWS WHEN THEY ARE ADDICTED (THEY JUST DON'T TELL THEIR SELF) WE'LL LEAVE GAMBLERS ANONYMOUS HANDLE THIS ONE.

    #9 ALWAYS MAKE DECISIONS BASED ON YOUR BEST CHANCE TO WIN NOT FAVORITISM: FOR EXAMPLE JUST BECAUSE A TEAM DESTROYED THIS WEEK DOES NOT MEAN THEY WILL NEXT WEEK OR EVERYBODY SAYS THE COWBOYS ARE GOING TO DESTROY THE GIANTS SO I GOT TO TAKE THEM. (ALWAYS ASK YOURSELF HOW CAN I GET THE ODDS IN MY FAVOR.)

    #10 ALWAYS HAVE FUN: YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY. (IF YOU DON'T LOVE WHAT YOU DO YOU'LL NEVER SUCCEED)

    Well folks that's my list and i am "trying" to stick to it!
    Good luck everybody
    PAULYPOKER
    Rule #4 is not true. Obviously you are not a gambler, or you would know that Poker and Blackjack fit into that catagory as well.

    1. Trust your original instinct. If a line jumps out at you, check mark that bitch. Do your capping and if you find more reason to like it, play it. If you find info to give you pause, consider not playing it, or dropping the value. Never change your bet.

    2. Fukk Parlays.

    3. No NFL team is as good as everyone thinks and no NFL teams is as bad as everyone thinks. You must accurately gauge each team and ignore the flavor of the week/month that talking heads will tell you is the best/worst team ever. Ex: Any Pats line in '07 starting with -24 vs Phi and after.

    4. Never tease college football...ever. If you tease NFL, learn some Wong and pay attention to those key numbers.

    5. Use multiple accounts, giving you multiple outs and always shop for your best line.

    6. Bet with your head, not your heart. Sorry, some of these are cliches, but they are built on truth. So we should just include bet with your head not over it as well. you never want to be out of the game. the house will never be out of the game, their BR is infinite, your's is not.

    7. Never double down and don't bet a game just cause it is on TV. Sure these were mentioned, no need to write em up, but they cannot be ignored.

    8. Fade Lang.

    9. Find cappers that are better than you to follow. I am only good in football, and pretty much only NFL. So i figure there have got to people like me, just with their strength in a different sport.

    10. ALWAYS, ALWAYS REMEMBER you do not know everything. learn everything you can. find successful cappers/bettors and ask questions. cruise any page here and you will find threads based on ego, driven by ego and tons of posts clouded by ego. the hardest thing to do is admit you need help. i expect if anyone reads this post, there will be some that bash it. they are also the ones that are broke or reload every few months. we are engaged in an ultimate version of "i told you so." but if your main ambition is to be able to prove someone else wrong, you will not win long term.

    only 10? think i could double that list.

    I agree with all of these. except for #10 as I know everything. I look forward to posting more in the Think Tank, looks like plenty of bitching going on with the skirts in there and I can give them plenty to whine about.

    It is funny how the rainmen in the thinktank try to trash every system that does not deal with numbers like it is some kind of threat or something. well my system has a number 1in it and is one of the digits on my hand your odds are 1 in 5
    can you calculate which 1?

    Your better off using a dvr to tape the game so you already know who wins before you watch it. I have a bad habit of always watching a game that i'm losing alot longer than a game that i am winning.
