Betting Advice - 15 Professional Gambling Tips

By: Kevin Phillips

When betting you ought to have a long list of rules to abide by, below I have listed a few that ought to help you develop your gambling.

- Never pursue your losses, bet what you intended at the start of the day, and keep to your standard stakes. If your having a beer, write your bets and stakes down before you begin. Better still, DO NOT consume beer when gambling, otherwise you realize the hard way why bookies are placed near public houses!

- Many gambles are arranged for Claimers & Sellers, so make certain you are aware of the market in advance backing a selection. The same theory applies to a number of races on the All Weather, especially around holiday periods, and trainers birthdays.

- Do not bet in Amateur or Apprentice races unless you are sure of the horse and jockey, they are usually just schooling races for the horses!

- You should not have to study each race, eventually you will realise which horse races you are better at, so concentrate on them.

- Always check on the draw in big fields, it can be the difference between your horse getting a run or not, and the ground can effect the draw on a number of tracks. In fact rain can effect the draw in the course of a meeting.

- Try not to be swayed by reports or tips on horses in the media, except they are proven successful. (Remember; they are employed to choose horses in each race. Do you think they have the time to study them all?)

- Always double check ground conditions on the day, and during racing, this country is well renowned for severe changes within hours. Never believe the official track going, view the first race, and pay attention to what the jockeys say.

- Take it easy at the start of each season; the form can take a couple of months to settle down. AW horses in winning form, will not always run the same on grass.

- Be suspicious of odds-on Novice Chasers, as they are just learning, and are prone to errors.

- Try to avoid backing ante-post unless you are certain your horse will run, and the odds will have shortened on the day.

- DO NOT do fun multiple bets (i.E., Yankees, Canadians, etc.,), as these help pay for the bookies holidays.

- If you have followed a handicap horse that is on a winning run, and subsequently it is unplaced in a big field, in one of the most important handicap races of the season, always back it on its next run back in its usual class, as after it returns to its normal grade, they often carry on were they left off.

- The SCOOP6 is worth a little interest each week. I have won the place portion on a number of occasions, perming no more than 16 lines.

- Avoid favourites in heavy ground (mud). Front runners in this kind of ground at a few tracks can be very profitable, as those at the back find it hard to quicken

- Always take notice of top jockeys traveling to the races for just one ride. Also note down top Newmarket trainers traveling to Scottish tracks.
