7 Tips That Gambling Pros Use to Win When Betting on NFL

Posted by Alex Murphy on May 4, 2015 in

August is the month when all of us who follow NFL games start to think of how to decide on NFL Odds when placing our bets. If you are like us, you are into betting because you want to win! There are lots of bookies and their buddies who have “insider tips” as to what are winning bets. Of course, many of these tips are not that good and don’t provide a decent return on your money. Interested in what the good ones are? Keep on reading to find out how to win if you are betting on NFL!

1. First and most important tip: play with bookies that have good reputation. You have probably heard from a few of your friends who never got their betting wins.

2. Even though we have just told you to choose one bookie you trust, now we will (as it seems) say something completely different when we tell you the tip we heard from a few of the big players: don’t bet in just one place, always go and bet with a few bookies. The reason behind this is that this enables you to choose from several different odds for a game you place your bet on. It is only logical to place your bet having in mind the best betting lines.

3. Don’t listen to sports reporters, casters and comments on sports channels, because the majority of these guys don’t bet. For the better part, they just read stats off the screen, something that someone else wrote for them to read, and many don’t have a clue what they are reading.

4. If you are placing your bets for fun, then you don’t have to think much about details, and just go with your instinct —you could win that way. However, if you want to achieve a profit through online betting, then you must be systematic and do your research every time before you place your bets.


5. Besides being systematic and doing your research, it is also important to be consistent and spend only as much money as you have previously decided to spend on that particular betting day. Think of how much money (realistically) you can spend —and don’t go over that. If you keep on spending more than you can afford, very soon you could be in a serious problem.

6. Write down details about your bets. This is good to do because it will enable you to analyze where you win, and where you lose. This way, you can invest in where you can get your investment back, and not spend money where you lose. Keeping records and analyzing them every once in a while is something that all successful business people do.

7. A systematic and not too risky approach is the way to go if you are not a professional (and if you are, then you probably don’t need these tips anyway!). Consider betting equally on all games, because that way you will not lose more than you can afford. You might not win stellar, but you will also not lose stellar as well!
