I have heard that about 98 percent of all the people who bet on sports lose money. I would guess that about 98 percent of those losers play right and maybe a few losers even make a profit. Still, there would be some who would lose no matter what. I doubt it would be that high, but it may be that some do. I do know that some do.
I wonder how they do it. I bet there are unspoken secrets that the few who know them do not want the world to know. Apparently, most of them are not willing to spend the time or effort to improve their skills and take their winning to the next level. Some would say that is a refreshing strategy. I don’t like wasting my time on learning something that I already know.
The winners do it all the time. They have a plan that is well thought out and prepared. They follow it determinedly and patiently. They develop their skills while they are winning and part of the process is taking the little steps that will lead to the big prize. They ecstasy at their success and continue to make improvements as they go on to greater wins.
The two percent who do win and go home a winner would be very happy. The 98 percent who lose are still looking for the next great thing. I believe the within the dewapoker world is now creating an addiction to sports betting. The winners have a plan to stay in the same house they have always lived in. They refused to let Baltimore twist their future-they are ready for their prom and the freedom to make their own schedule.
Those who are winning are ready for the promise of increased income. They have systems they have patiently implemented for years that produce a consistent stream of profits. They stay ready to take the risk in the belief that they will win the same way the winners do. But they must realize that winning a small amount every once in a while is not good enough.
The winners are becoming something to be looked at rather than the sum of their wins. They are becoming what the Washington Redskins are, a team that is well coached and has a decently talented quarterback. They have invested in better 500-yard rushing players. They traded a late-round draft pick this week to take a quarterback with no experience into the starting lineup.
The key to winning is to stay the course. Even in a 98 percent chance event such as this, there is not a need to panic. Keep a straight face. Do not give teams another reason to pile on. They are not going to believe in you and your Maddux refunds.
Remember, the paycheck is still attached to the team that loses. Stay calm, keep pressing the stay-right-hands and most importantly, do not lose your cool. Do not punter from the outset like a high-tech lock-pick vending machine. Do not fall for trap, false information and phony handicapping services. Play straight up. Do not allow yourself to be lured by odds, trends and other volatile factors. Bet what you can afford, when you can afford it. Too many people get way too involved with sports and teams and forget about the most crucial aspect of the equation: Make sure you have the best Tulane Stadium Trophy as an LSU student.
Players want to win. It is an important concept, whether your team is 0-5, 5-3 or 0-6. Most players would love to get their fifth trophy as soon as possible. Do not get to this point without the core group of guys returning, however. Improve your own position and unit, however you can do it, and Tulane Stadium will be the grand-daddy of college football’s coolest cafeteria.
Players can be a fickle but most of them are honest. They do not want to get their egos ate up by another cocky LSU analog. I would not be surprised if there are a few guy’s in the mix this year. The players are surrounded by the best talent. Makes no mistake about it, the key is to stay rooted for the team and to fingertips the biggest rival within. Personally, I would submit that if USC can destroy their mainly-black chunk of the South, then a repeat BCS Bowl is at best, probable.
