Learning the Basketball Betting Line at SBG Global

November 30th, 2010 NBA Basketball

Basketball betting line odds are pretty easy to understand although winning against them is not always that easy.

If you want to separate yourself from the pack and break away as one of the few that actually succeed versus college and NBA betting odds then become a student. Not a student of basketball, but a student of the basketball betting line.

Basketball betting line losses are going to happen. No that doesn’t mean to learn how to pick losers but, instead, learn how to handle losing because, no matter how good you are, you are going to lose, and lose frequently, versus the basketball betting line. To the typical member of the sports betting public, losing versus the basketball betting line is simply due to “bad luck” and not catching “breaks.” This is also known as denial. There is a reason that some guys are always on the wrong end of “bad beats” and never seem to catch a “lucky bounce” versus college or NBA betting odds. It has to do with value on the basketball betting line.

The gamblers that are constantly losing those horrific half and one-point losses are in that predicament because they are habitually accepting lines and NBA betting odds that are less than full value. Keep in mind that for every “bad beat” or unlucky loss there were guys that won that same game because they were on the other side of the basketball betting line. Could it be because these guys are “lucky” or could it be because they are “good?” Guys that are eking out wins by a half a point or a point are doing so not because they are lucky but because they learned from their past mistakes and got the best basketball betting line.

Part of learning to lose is learning not to go on a binge by chasing losses or going on “tilt” when you are in a bad streak versus the basketball betting line. The greatest year of your life wagering against college or NBA betting odds will be when you hit sixty-percent against the board, which means that in that best year, you will lose forty-percent of your games. This means that you cannot go berserk in bad times and chase losses versus the basketball betting line.

Learning how to lose is just as important as learning how to win as you wager against the basketball betting line.  It is all a process and it takes time.
