    Watching Games live, Punters Biggest Mistake

    For a few reasons

    too much sweating every play leads to a web of bad emotional decisions

    I understand the action is how we got here

    but setting score alerts and watching delayed has shown to be much more effective for me

    also you just wanna bet the next game on tv

    ncaabb I have to because too many games to watch delay

    however that’s the only sport I love watching rather action or not

    nfl red zone works cuz it’s not dialed in to one play

    But if I had a max play on say UTAH UCLA tonight, I would just set score alerts

    watch something else or go out w/ my girl and dvr to skim later

    idk typical kid ramble, I suppose



    *****Excluding Horse Racing (gotta watch live, as much as possible)

    If betting live must watch in my opinion

    When not watching you do not see all
    The bad plays therefore less stress

    World Series obv an exception

    any playoffs for that matter



    but most bet just to watch / have action / entertainment



    nothing wrong with it



    I’m just talking about if your goal is purely money



    which is me now

    I suppose my point is

    indifference

    even if faked

    is winning



    learned it from poker



    just do the work



    and get it in w/ the best of it @ the best possible time



    results are results



    win the game before it starts
