Reporting from Bet Chat HQ, south west London…
Have you ever woken up hungover, surrounded by Chinese food, and realised that some strangers were coming to view your flat in 10 minutes time?
I don’t recommend it.
Start Earlier > Drink Stronger > Drink Faster
While it’s safe to say I’m far from convinced that the positives of pubs and restaurants being forced to close at 10pm will outweigh the negatives, Boris’s latest ‘rona policy from the Random ‘Rona Policy Generator did at least bring up the very worthy concept of ‘marginal gains’…
This is an idea that got a lot of exposure when it was openly used by the incredibly successful British Olympic cycling team. The theory is that making lots of tiny little improvements (such as becoming 0.1% more aerodynamic) adds up to a major overall improvement.
This is something that’s well worth applying to your betting and it can be achieved in all sorts of different ways…
- You could check the odds on the exchanges (taking into account commission) as well as the fixed odds bookies on Oddschecker to ensure that you’re always getting the very best price.
- You could place your racing or football bets a little earlier to ensure that you have the best possible chance of beating the start price.
- You could do 5 minutes extra research on each bet to look at a couple of extra angles you might not have considered otherwise.
- You could add a little more information to your track record so that you can better spot your own strengths and weaknesses.
Without exception, we can all do more and so my bit of advice for today is simply this…
Take five minutes to really think about how you bet and what one or two little things you can do to improve your chances of success.
What may seem like very minor improvements to you can end up having a surprisingly big impact on your bottom line.
I might head back to bed now but, before I go, I’ll leave you with this alternative version of Boris’s latest announcement.
You may laugh but who knows what the Random ‘Rona Policy Generator will fart out next!
