If winning isnt everything, why do they keep score?
This is what great coach Vince Lombardi once said. I believe that nothing is played for fun but for the stake at play. This is why nobody is betting for fun but for the winning.
I have been betting for 10 years now and I had my share of big wins and big losses and the most important lessons i have learned were about patience and bankroll management. I started betting on football and tennis but slowly developed a passion for US Sports like MLB, NBA. CFL and NFL. I also like to try my luck with other sports however the most important thing in betting on sports that you do not know so well is to understand how the game is played (to know absolutely all the rules of that sport) and to have acces to enough information about all the teams.
When i see a game that is interesting to me. before wagering on it, I like to read all the news and statements available before looking at statistics and stuff. Then i put my self in the bookmakers place and make odds for that game and then finally i look at the odds given for that game. Where i find value i bet on it.
My favorite leagues to bet on are Romanian First Division and Euro Cups in football and NFL.
