If you’ve been betting on sports for some time now and have had some significant wins under your belt, you may be thinking that it’s time for a change. It’s time to up the ante and bring your betting prowess to the next level. Lots of people have done it, so why not you? But betting on sports as a professional is a whole different ball game (pun intended). There’s a difference between an amateur bettor and a professional one, and sometimes the difference can be vast. Here’s what you need to know to become a successful sports betting entrepreneur.

Whilst sites like Bettingexpert offer unique strategies on sports betting, there are some general rules you have to bear in mind. Knowing these rules – and following them – can bring you the ultimate success – enough to be considered a true professional.

Know what works for you

You have probably been keeping close track of your wins and losses and have a good idea of what works. But in order to improve your betting strategy, you have to carefully analyse your results to spot the trends. Take a look at your record, and be objective about it. By doing this, you will be able to see what you excel at and determine your real edge. Find out, for instance, at which odds range you are profitable. Some bettors and punters excel at choosing long shots, while others take advantage of betting on favourites and have been able to create a continuous and stable string of wins. Find what your specialty is and focus on it. The overall idea is to refine your strategy when it comes to betting so you can really begin raking in the winnings.

Be more logical

Think about the times when you were emotional when placing a bet. Was there an instance where you were reckless in your bets because of a winning streak, or was there a time when you continued to place bets (even though the odds were against you) just because you were chasing a loss? The key is to find out your weaknesses when it comes to emotions and assess how these weaknesses are affecting your betting strategy. Logic is your friend; throw your emotions out the window. It’s business, not personal, after all.

Be financially-savvy with your money

You have probably been able to manage your finances quite well, hence your decision to take it to the next level. But just like an entrepreneur, you have to treat your bets as investments. How do you want your investments to be rewarded? Do you want regular, consistent profits, or do you want an investment that pays big in one fell sweep? You may even want to take a ‘salary’ of sorts, and this would require a set schedule and a set bankroll as well.
