5 Tips for Sports Betting Beginners

 

Sports betting beginners all need to start somewhere.

Key Points

  • Beginning bettors should have a solid understanding of what they are getting into in order to enjoy betting.
  • Beginning bettors have to be disciplined.

 

With the rise of sports betting in the US, more and more people are jumping on the bandwagon and placing bets. The problem is many of them donít understand the industry and how it works.

Too often, novice bettors are simply throwing their money away and, in the end, not enjoying what should be a fun and exciting betting experience.

Here are five tips for sports betting beginners to help them enjoy their experience and continue their betting careers.

Donít Bet the Rent Sports Betting Beginners

Itís probably the most important tip for a beginner. If you donít have the money to bet with, then donít. Donít bet the mortgage payment, the car payment, or your savings on a sporting event.

Work with a budget and come up with an amount that you can afford to wager each week or each month. Whatever that amount is, stick to it. 

Understand Odds/Lines

You have to become comfortable with betting lingo and how to place bets. With todayís technology, itís pretty easy to place a bet at a sportsbook. You do have to understand lines and odds though.

The big three bets in most sports are moneyline bets, point spread bets, and totals bets. Beginning bettors should understand the basics of each.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† Pittsburgh ††††† +3 (-110)†††††††† +180††† O 44 (-110)

††††††††††††††††††††††† Baltimore†††††††† -3 (-110)††††††††† -155†††† U 44 (-110)

In the above example, Baltimore is favored to beat Pittsburgh by 3 points. The Ravens must win by at least four points to ďcoverĒ the spread. If they do and you bet $110, you win $100. Thatís what the (-110) indicates.

You can also bet on Baltimore simply to win. You would have to wager $155 to win $100 on the moneyline. A totals bet is simply one on the final score of the game. In this case, you are betting on whether or not the total goes Over or Under 44.

Bet Size for Sports Betting Beginners

Depending upon the size of your betting bankroll and your budget, you should develop a unit size. This is the amount that you will bet on any event. The unit size could be a range, but you should always stay within that range.

A betting budget is step #1 for all sports betting beginners.

For example, you might be a $1 to $5 bettor. Keep your unit size to that range. Donít go out and wager $20 on a game that you think is a guaranteed lock. You wonít like it when that so-called lock doesnít work out.

Donít Overreact and Chase Losses

After you win four or five bets in a row, you will become confident in your betting. Too often, when one gets confident, they get over-confident and thatís when they become less disciplined.

Remember your unit size. Just about the time you think you can wager more than your standard unit is the time when your winning streak stops.

The same thing happens on the other end too. Bettors lose three or four in a row and then try to win it back with one big bet. Donít overreact. Stick to your plan and your unit size.

Shop for Lines & Odds

You probably get gas from the station with the best price in town. Itís the same for bets. If you can find a better price somewhere, why not take it? Line shopping is a winning strategy!

You can shop at different sportsbooks and you may find a bet you like with an even better line or better odds. This is one of the best things you can do to increase your number of wins and the size of your bankroll.

Do you want to put money directly back into your pocket? Incentives at top online sportsbooks do just that. Hereís a recent article about gamblerís insurance.
