Free Betting Advice - Laying Horses On The Betting Exchanges

By: Kevin Phillips

Those of you have been laying horses a good while may possibly know all this stuff I am going to type but I thought it might be good to set it all down in a single article. I am a great believer that the solitary thing that sorts out who will make a big sucess of lays and individuals who will not is generally the mental attitude to them. What you need to do is teach your brain, almost brainwash it if you like to overide all the emotions that can lead to any systems biggest enemies which are inconsistiency and tinkering. Here are some of my principal laying rules.

1) Take the positives out of every day.

There is constantly a positive from every day, even if you plunge 5 x Base Bets (5x your stake)! The positive here will be that statistically you are due a nice run sometime in the future to counter it as long as you know the system is likely to be profitable long term. If we had no crap days then we would have no good good days!

2) There is no such thing as being unlucky.

If you catch 4 winners rather than the 3 everyone else running a similar system have, it does not mean you have been unlucky. They have been lucky, that is correct, you have simply been less lucky than them. To avoid a winner is a bonus and not something which ought to be factored into the overall strategy. You must take for granted you will catch every winner. Obviously if folk are using a cut-off on the betting exchanges then discrepancies will occur between each others results.

3) Treat your betting bank as BB's (Base Bets - Your original stake) and not pounds and pence.

If you have a �1000 bank and a BB of �40 that means your bank is 25 Base bets strong (100/40). If you drop �100.00 that means you have dropped 2.5 x BB which is simpler to take than saying �100.00. It is all relative when your bank is �10,000 and you drop say �800.00 that would be 2 x BB and a better result than many days you will have had in earlier days even though the monetery sum is that much greater.

4) Never pay attention to any sound!

What I mean concerning this is don't let other peoples results or emotions redirect you. Just because someone may possibly only be down 1 x BB and you are down 2 x BB it does not neccessarily mean what you are doing is any worse than what they are doing. You don't know their circumstances, they may possibly stake differently to you, may have gone out and missed a winner by mistake, have a different cut-off, lesser liabilty %. It does not matter as long as you have chosen what works better for you then you will be fine.

5) Dont get overly concerned by daily results.

Daily results, weekly results or even monthly results mean little. All the finish of the days racing means is that there is a longer break prior to the commencement of the next race. System gambling is ongoing.
