Know When to Hold Them, Know When to Fold

One thing you will always notice about successful College Basketball teams is that they rarely beat themselves. Through a long College Basketball season the good teams find ways to keep their mistakes to a minimum, which makes it difficult for the opposing team to win.

Beating one opponent is hard enough. When facing the challenge of beating oddsmakers it is important not to beat yourself, you are facing an opponent that is more qualified then you and are experts in their field. Oddsmakers are so experienced that they can actually lure the general public into placing bad bets into making millions of dollars from their manipulation.

To be a professional College Basketball bettor you must realize that you already have one enemy and you do not need to make yourself another one by your bad choices. Betting College Basketball can only be a success if you win over half (52.4%) of your bets so you are at a disadvantage right from the get-go. You just cannot assist the sportsbooks in winning your money. I guarantee the sportsbooks will not be helping you get it back! Like Kenny Rogers says in his song, “You got to know when to hold’em, know when to fold’em”. Sometimes folding is the best decision a better can make. Cutting your losses can actually work to your advantage when used correctly.

One of the worst things a bettor can do is start betting out of control to try to regain your losses. The difference between an amateur and a professional bettor is realizing when to use self-control and discipline on your wagering. It is vital for success when betting on pro College Basketball to keep your cool and not being rattled anytime you have a bad day or a bad week. If you do not keep your cool you can find yourself losing your whole bankroll out of stupidity and just like that your season is over. This is a long run endeavor and only the best of the best can actually have the metal to resist the urge to double up on games after a loss.

Although there will be bad days when betting on College Basketball, there also will be great days when it seems like nothing can go wrong. Self-control will assist you on absorbing bad streaks and it will keep you afloat so you can make it to those good days.
