With so much potential action there is the potential to burn through one’s bankroll in no time without being careful. The first thing that a serous baseball betting fans should do is honestly assess why he is even involved in the game and what he is trying to accomplish.
If you want to have any chance at all to win at betting baseball you have to commit yourself to a goal, and a goal that is realistic and attainable. If you start the baseball betting season off with a $1,000 gambling bankroll you should have modest expectations and not have any illusions about a powerball season that will have you retiring under palm trees come the end of the World Series.
Your immediate goal is to put yourself in a marathon mindset that thinks in terms of weeks, or better yet months at a time, rather than a day after day mindset. Baseball betting fans must have a short memory and quickly forget about the inevitable “bad beats” that are inescapable during the long grind of the season. Just as even the best teams in the game will suffer excruciating defeats so will the best of baseball bettors and those who get over it quickly and move on will stand the best chance at success.
You should try and reach goals of percentage increases of your bankroll each month, which will help keep you focused and disciplined over a few bad days. A 20% increase of your bankroll each month will have you well over doubling your money come the end of the regular season!
Patience and discipline at sticking with realistic goals and methodology will give you a sense of purpose and personal power to overcome the marathon.
