Sports Betting: Learning it Before Becoming a Bookie
If you really want to make it as a price per head bookie, it is certainly in your best interest to get to know those that will become your clients: sports betting players.
And, what a better way to get to know them than to jump to the other side of the fence and see the world from their point of view!
This means that in order to recruit players for your sports betting bookie business, you should become a bettor yourself, and in this article, we offer you some guidance on what you need to do to become a professional sports gambler.
Sports Betting Advice:
On The Right Side of Wagers
As the saying goes, “fake it, until you make it”, if you want to turn into a pro bettor, the aforementioned phrase should become your personal motto.
The more you believe that you have made it, the closer you will actually be to make it.
If you believe that you are already a sports betting professional (or a pay per head bookmaking agent, for that matter), it will certainly be easier for you to take better decisions because you are “in the zone.”
Tips for your mindset:
- Believe that you already possess a winning handicapping system.
- Think that you are making great profits with sports betting and therefore, you are now your own boss.
- Remind yourself that this is a job/hobby that you can run from anywhere in the world.
- Feel that you have the potential for unlimited earnings.
The Right Mentors
Before you invest any cash on sports betting, make sure that you know how to handicap correctly! In fact, this is at the core of becoming a bookie that can be considered a successful one.
In order to do this, you must definitely look out for mentors. But not just any kind of mentors, you should avoid learning from gamblers that losses money all the time.
Instead, focus on getting your knowledge from those who make a living from sports betting. Those who belong to the small percentage of individuals who are true winners.
Now, it is important to mention that you need to be careful about who you are trusting you to teach you as there are many “handicappers” out there that even though they possess the knowledge, they really don’t want to teach you the good stuff because they want you to keep paying them for their “knowledge.”
Of course don’t forget about reading as many books on the matter as you can. There are many excellent written material sources out there on sports betting, so try to get your hands on all of those books in order to squeeze the essence of each one of them.
Your best bet is to visit amazon and search for those books on the subject which have a 4-star or higher rating, and make sure that they have been rated by many people, not just a few, because that can mean that it is the author himself who is doing the good press.
