A Betting System Can Net Great Results

Aug 17, 2007
When it comes to gambling, there are as many betting systems as there are things to bet on. Whether it's horses, football, boxing or beyond, there are literally hundreds of different betting systems to consider. When it comes to horses, however, some betting systems actually make a whole lot of sense.

But, what are betting systems and how do they work?

In general, a good betting systems takes a look at the math behind the sport. That's right, the math. The odds, if you will. The math is considered the be all, end all in a good betting system.

This is so for a number of reasons, but the most obvious is the fact it's just plain logical. The favorite in a race is the favorite for a reason. It's just more likely that horse will be the first across the line.

When using a betting system to wager on horse races, it's a good idea to remember a few things and employ some common sense along the way. Let's look at some of the top tips for putting a betting system to use:

* Don't ignore mitigating factors. If, for example, the betting system you're using and the track records of the horses in question point to a particular likely winner, but you saw the horse earlier and noticed it was a little under the weather, you might want to choose a different winner. Or, if the favorite is not fond of mud tracks and it's raining, pick again (possibly).

* Don't bet your entire bank. Many who use betting systems tend to go a little overboard. To prevent betting the house and the farm, set aside X number of dollars (that you can afford) and never bet more than a small percentage of the total you have on any given race.

* Keep your bets consistent. Try to wager the same amount, or percentage of your bank, consistently. You can increase the bet when you've increased your bank, or disposable money.

* No matter the principles your betting system employs, it's a good idea to remember that they can be off on some days. No matter how good the betting system is, there are some days that they just won't work. The odds are in favor of the favorites winning races, but sometimes the underdog will come in.

* Don't expect results over a single race. The key behind most betting systems is that they pay off in the long run. That means they must be employed consistently over multiple races with the above in mind - some days the odds just don't stack up.

* Know when to quit. Whether you're up or down, it's a good idea to know when to walk away to play another day. That means, set a bottom limit and a win limit. When you reach the point (either up or down), walk away.

A good betting system helps those into racing look at the odds carefully and play them in their favor. Because horses are subject to good days and bad days, just like people, it is a smart idea to remember a betting system won't always work, but when it does, it does well.
