Do you want to make money from sports betting? Of course you do. What could be better than
watching a game and cheering on a team to win knowing that you have money riding on their
victory? The problem is that most bettors do not understand how to win at sports betting. There’s
a pejorative term for people like them: squares. But you might as well call them losers because
unless they get really lucky -- they’re practically giving their money away to the sports book.
Avoid being a square by following these sports betting tips and emerge a winner.

1.     Don’t let your emotions dictate your betting decisions. Yes, the Cardinals may be your
       favorite team, but that doesn’t mean you always have to put money down on them,
       particularly if all the signs show that they’re having a losing season. Make your bets
       based on careful considerations of all the factors involved that could determine the
       outcome of the game (a practice called handicapping).
2.     Bet with a clear head. Yes, we know that sports watching a beer go together, but sports
       betting and beer definitely do not. Don’t drink and gamble or you’ll end up a loser.
3.     Avoid complicated bets that promise a big payoff. Yes, I know that parlay bet looks very
       tempting, but keep in mind that if pick the wrong team in just one game of the parlay bet,
       even if you got all the other games right, your entire bet is lost. Keep it simple and
       confine yourself to straights and point spreads.
4.     Shop around for the best odds/sports book. Serious gamblers always maintain two or
       more accounts at various sports books and then go with the one that offers the best line.
       Remember that even a point or two changes in the spread can spell the difference
       between a win and a loss for you.
5.     Manage your money well. Allocate a certain percentage of your bankroll as your bet and
       never go beyond that. The general rule of thumb is that you should bet 2%-3% of your
       total bankroll and not more than five percent. Never wager your entire bankroll on one
