Yes a good topic, money management is the key,but so few can do it. It's ok to take a loss for the day and not to chase,always more games the next day.

The mistake most bettors make is betting different amounts of money on different wagers. For example, you bet $10 on a game and win, bet another $10 on a game and win, then bet $30 on the next game and lose. You're 2-1 overall, but you're down money overall. Poor strategy.

If you're confident you win more bets than you lose, bet the same amount of money on each wager....no matter how enticing one particular bet may look.

Also, never try a pyramid scheme where you keep doubling your bet after a loss. Sounds good in the short run, since you rarely lose four or five games in a row. But look at the betting history of ANY longtime Covers player and you'll see that long losing streaks do happen. I had a friend lose 20 bets in a row. Imagine what would have happened to his bankroll if he always doubled down after a loss!

 money management in simplesr form:

betting 2%-5% of your total bankroll depending if your betting hot or cold. a 5g br your max bet or bets should be 250 a day

Haha!! Jeffrey7 has it right, quit gambling... None of us will quit though that's the problem. I use the 5% method myself. I am not afraid to lose and try not to chase (it does happen). I have a blackout at 1 dime so if I lose 500 in a week I quit and start over on Monday. The main thing to stay away from is betting 7 round robins in a day. You can't win that many games. Bet 2-3 games a day and call it good win or lose. Seems to make the bankroll last a little longer. Good luck everyone...

The key to gambling is to make sure you win.  If you win, you arent losing anything and are profiting.  Bigger risk bigger reward but if you lose the money, its gone.  Make safe bets.  Find what you're good at.  Look for patterns and analyze, analyze, analyze.  Dont just look at what team is better, look at which team has the most motivation and why they have more motivation to perform.  Basketball has always killed me gambling, because I was always looking at the game and saying "this team is better than that one", totally disregarding which team is more motivated in the spot they are in.  When you bet against human nature you lose, when you bet with human nature, you will win.  Vegas is tricky with the lines on purpose.  You have to weave and dodge to figure it out.  Its entirely possible to do, but its not easy.  Some days there just arent any good bets on the board but every game has a winner.  You cant predict the future, so stop trying.  I'm no pro, but I know what I'm looking for now and hopefully that will lead to more success in the future.
