    Only way I make money is limit my action. Playing every day is a guarantee to lose. I work hard for my money and keeping your book on the payroll = your a loser. Limit your action go make someone else happy once a week. Learn it live it love it. Rock bottom is shit avoid it at all costs

    Bet what is not popular as the lines are not as sharp.

    A good example is I-AA football or women's college hoops. I've made six figures many years betting it. People used to make fun of me but I don't care where my money comes from, as long as I get paid.

    In the words of Jim Rome, "have a take and don't suck." If your opinions suck, stop gambling.

    If your opinions are good but you suck at managing risk, bet $10 until you learn to become a grinder. One of the sharper guys I know goes bust every year because he absolutely cannot manage his bankroll. I've told him many times to take one year and just bet $10 a game and learn how to control his emotions, but he will never do it. He just has to make money now, and his goals are way higher than his bankroll will allow. Unfortunately, this is very common.

    My personal rules list (sorry not one thing). Betting is a hobby for me but I win more than I lose.

    - Get all your bets ready to be made, then cut it down to your top 1, 2 or 3.
    - Never chase...EVER.
    - If you bet baseball, bet 1st 5 only.
    - Dont have a large variance in wagering. If you bet $50 on a normal game, dont be a idiot on a game you "love". Maybe twice your normal amount AT THE MOST.
    - Statistical data older than 5 years doesnt mean shit. The way sports are played and personnel change to fast and too often for that data to be relevant.
    - Weather matters.
    GET THAT $$$

    Stop trying to pick winners. Bet the teams who you believe are more likely to win. The higher the % the better. View it like counting cards and understand that at certain times you are more likely to win than others. Those are the games to pick. Sometimes the right side loses. But if you play that side every time....you make money

    I have a local for 25 years and I call him every day and ask where all the big money is going. He tells me and I bet the opposite with him. This works out at a 65+% win clip for the past 10 years.
