Before betting your Sports Picks, you must establish a money management or betting system to manage your cash flow as if you are running a business. To insure success in your business, you must create a budget for your betting system and never bet more than you can afford.
As a professional handicapper, I advise my sports bettors to set a budget for the month or for the current sports season. You should establish your budget the same for all sports, whether it is for your NFL Picks, NCAAF Picks, NBA Picks, NCAAB Picks or MLB Picks.
Once you have established your budget, you want to make the same average bet per wager and in professional handicapping; we call this the unit system. An average unit is based on the budget you have set for your handicapping business and a unit is usually 5-10% of your bankroll. Using this unit system will allow you to manage your bankroll and get through any cold betting streaks because if there is not a budget set for your sports picks, an undisciplined sports bettor will eventually end up trying to chase their losses by doubling up on their next bet or betting games on impulse that they have not handicapped. Either of these tactics will usually have the same disastrous results.
Without a money-management discipline and a structured betting system to follow, often times a player will blow their bankroll, which is when a handicapper becomes a gambler.
When you have a betting system set in place, there is no such thing as a lock even and the only time you should wager more is when your bankroll increases. Incorporate a betting system today for your handicapping business and start winning today!
