    I've been betting for about 5 years. I have consistently lost. Won big in baseball. Lost my behind in football. Just wondering how to make money doing this. Need some consistency. I've tried fading people and following good handicappers. Tried tier betting among others.

    Money management is the most important thing. I dont know shit besides the NFL. Im not an NFL capper but I can pick some winners during the year. So when I feel good about a game and it matches great cappers then I know Im on the right side. I f my pick doesnt agree then I look for more information. If I tail in other sports then I drop my unit size to less than 1%. I wont make much and i wont lose much either. When the NFL gets here my unit size increases.

    I know for a fact I cant pick and choose games in other sports tailing all different cappers. The best thing is to find a few and only play the games they agree on or pick one capper and play all his plays. There are many here that win consistently. Money management is the difference between winning and losing. Good luck.

    Laying -101 over time turns you into dogmeat. Those so called "great juice" lines of -105 turn you to dogmeat 5 times faster. -110 gets you there 10 times faster, and Vegas boards are full of -110s'. I laugh when I see their selection walls lit up with -110s'. Cattle will be cattle. Sheep will be sheep.

    To win a dollar, risk less than a dollar.

    I don't care who you are, or how smart you think you are.

    I can tell you what I do, so you should definitely do the other way around, whem I'm wining all good, then I lose 2 or 3 in a row and start losing my mind cause "that money was already mine, right" so I bet bigger and lose all my winnings, so you can always see me winning more wagers than I lose but I'm always owing people..

    So, self control. Don't be me.

    Many, many years ago, there was a small little town named Las Vegas.

    One of the games people thought they could beat was blackjack.

    They decided to book the game with a line of -1.0043096. Less vig than a -101/-101 line.

    The small little town grew.

    Not rocket science my friend...play baseball where you say you are a Winner.

    If you MUST play football...bet against yourself. That's the ticket!

    If you don't understand ..... STOP gambling.

    there are many qualities and skills that should be with us when betting: patience, self-control, keep your mind clear and dont get nervous betting bigger amounts when you lose - go for a walk and refresh yourself; but the most important is Money management because the betting is like investing money. Search more in google and on the betting forums you will find a lot of information how to manage your funds

    Usually just find a consistent handicapper to follow and stick with it long term

    I am a pretty good capper, I can just about break even. (Rating at eog best bests) with some adjustments I feel I can get to 55-57%. Aside from betting how can I make money, maybe selling or networking my picks.

    Don't chase.

    Create a winning system tested for 3 months with minimum 55% win percentage every 20 bets. The average should be 58% win percentage or higher. Stick to the system.

    Limit your juice to not more than -130.

    Money management of 3% of bankroll. Build bankroll so you can scale up your bet. Maximum target bet of $500. This means you need to build $500/.03 = $16.67K.

    Focus on what do you really want, I am a freshman and I think I've got a lot of research to do. As for you, I advise not to bet so much, just bet qualitatively
