Reporting from Bet Chat HQ, south west London…
This morning I was set an important errand which involved picking up some documents from an accountant in Canary Wharf and delivering them to a lawyer in Covent Garden.
As is ALWAYS the case, I got completely lost in Canary Wharf.
It’s hard to believe that place hasn’t been specifically designed to confuse directionally challenged people such as myself.
As if the medley of underground passages and overground islands/bridges wasn’t enough, the congregation of so many very tall offices in such a small area also means that GPS is completely useless.
It’s safe to say it’s not my favourite place, but it does bring me to a point about betting, which is that it’s really important you know your weaknesses.
I know I’m awful with directions and I know that Canary Wharf is a nightmare, so I gave myself lots of extra time this morning…
I also know I hate getting up early, so I would avoid a betting strategy that required me to place bets by 9am on a regular basis to secure the early value.
Winning long-term is just as much about identifying weaknesses as strengths, so take some time to have a think about yours…
Don’t have the patience for long losing runs? Don’t bet on big odds.
Find it difficult to stick to profit/loss targets/limits? In-play trading probably isn’t for you.
Consistently lose money on a certain sport or betting market? Stop betting on it (or at least start following an expert who does win).
Did you see this yesterday?
While it would be unfair of me to reveal the main weakness of Russel Yershon (cough somethingaboutamsterdam cough), his main strength is undoubtedly American football betting.
The good news for you, is that he’s allowed us to give away his 2020/21 ante-post betting guide completely free of charge!
There are some great looking bets in there, including 16/1 and 10/1 pokes, and even if you have no interest in watching the NFL, it’s well worth a look.
Drink that in before tomorrow’s big kick-off and enjoy the rest of your Thursday.
