Thanks to the internet, betting tips are available to us 24/7 every day of the year. A punter that wish to be successful must learn how to critically value this “information”, as well as tips obtained from other sources. It is also a good idea to develop some king of routine for how tips are obtained, because you will never have enough time and energy to go through every possible tip. Learn how to spot good sources and avoid the bad ones, while simultaneously making sure not to become overly rigid.
It is a great idea to have a few tried and tested sources whose tips you take into serious account, but it is also important to mix it up and now and then and search out new and preferably also unconventional sources that other punters might miss. Just as it is inadvisable to bet a large chunk of your bankroll on a single event, it is inadvisable to put all your faith in the words of a single source of tips. Diversification is key.
Should I pay for tips from a sports consultant? This is a difficult question to answer, since so many factors come into play here. There are many sports betting consultants out there and their quality varies greatly – to say the least. It is also important to realize that many consultants overextend themselves. A consultant that is great when it comes to rugby might for instance feel tempted to extend their services into American football as well, and this is where you need to be vigilant and not assume that a consultant that is excellent in one field is excellent in any other field. Some sports consultants are definitely worth paying for, within a specific field, but only if the cost of using them is reasonable for someone with your bankroll.
A risk with paying for a sports consultant, especially if the service is expensive in relation to your overall bankroll, is that you feel pressured to follow their advice and maybe also end up betting more than what’s reasonable based on their tip. When we pay good money for something, we want to use it – but this thinking can be disastrous for a sports bettor. In the end, it is always up to you to make the decision about what to wager on and how much to wager. Don’t make bets just because you feel pressured to “get your moneys worth” out of the tip you paid for.
