    If you’ve never really gotten into betting before, don’t do it. As a former gambler myself, if you gamble long enough you’re gonna eventually put yourself through hell. Get ready for sleepless nights, feelings of shame and guilt, and feeling physically ill.

    Hah, I didn’t notice that.

    I guess I was skimming too quick.

    I bet $20-50 here and there and I always lose. Turns out I predict all the fights correctly until I decide to put money on them.

    I use a site called bet365 but it must be blocked in your area.

    Word of caution, if you're trying to do it for fun and have $ to lose that's great, but if you're hoping to make money, turn around and never look back.

    If you're not willing to spend a dececnt amount of time on it, log all your bets, keep yourself to a % of bankroll per bet, and be very, very patient, there's no point ever really expecting any steady flow of money (and even then, especially if you mostly stick to boxing, don't expect much). If you just want to have fun and throw some money around here and there, there's nothing wrong with it, as long as you can handle gambling and reserving yourself to losing a reasonable amount (a lot of people can't).

    As a guy who is the son of someone who made a career out of gambling, I think it's become way too ubiquitous and pushed on way too many people who are desperate and can't handle it (whether it be on sports, the massive proliferation of VLTs, the stock market, crypto nonsense and so on). I really don't like it as it's obviously predatory.

    I gotta hear about your dad/ma whichever one made the money off gambling. That's my dream right there. Super hard time tho, you're right. I've been gambling on sports and other stuff my whole adult life and it's always always always a grind. No matter how sharp you think you've gotten there's always something to test you right around the corner.

    Beginners, on the other hand, should not rush into putting bets. You see, as simple as sports betting is, doing everything right when you're just getting started isn't easy.

    It's unlikely that you'll enjoy sports betting if you approach it incorrectly. You will almost certainly not be on the proper track to profit.

    This isn't meant to discourage you from betting on sports. Not at all. We simply want you to be ready and have the highest opportunity of succeeding.

    Hi dude! Yes, betting is a good way to earn extra money. My friend pays monthly car repairs and gasoline tariffs. By the way, you are right about the fact that online betting is prohibited by law. Many people have been looking for an answer to this question for a long time. But my cousin found a way to place bets online. With 百家樂 教學 we can do it! It seems to me that if you know how to control your emotions and carefully analyze matches, you can make quite a lot of money. Who do you think you can bet on in the near future?

    great advice.


    I've experienced the highs of cashing big on Spence vs Brook, and Fury vs Wilder II and III, but I've also experienced catastrophic losses and lows like with Chris Algeri vs Ruslan, and Tim Bradley vs Manny Pacquiao I.
