    Hey guys,

    Decided to make a thread to record my sports betting journey and if anyone is interested that would be amazing. I will post here daily updates.

    I've been betting on sports for 20 years. Worked as a sports betting live trader for 2 years, sports journalist for 3 years and so on, but never tried to bet "like a pro" so I will try this and see how it goes. I got a good job recently so I can afford to deposit the money that I did and even lose it all. It will not affect me.

    Starting Bankroll: 1885$
    Value of the bets: around 1.5% - 27.50$
    When the bankroll will increase about 50% I will also increase the amount of my 1.5% bets

    I do not want to promote gambling by starting this thread, Is very bad when you bet money that you can't afford, been there and suffered a lot because of this but now financially I'm in a good place, I love sports , I'm not doing anything during my shift, I work from home and want to give this a shot.

    My short term plan is to stick with this til the end of the year and see how it goes and after that I'll see if it's worth it to keep doing it or not.

    Also if some of you are placing bets you can post them here. I will mostly bet on football(soccer) and tennis.

    ive done very well over the years

    Some tips

    - Betting lines between 1.7-2.0 is my philosophy
    - Stay disciplined dont just bet on a game because you are watching & are bored
    - Dont bet mainstream leagues unless u get some info I.e players just announced injured. (happened last week & i was on Brentford dc)
    - Lower leagues where u get info & can get good prices
    - Multipliers are a waste of time
    - Dont bet based of XG or data that many people are doing now.
    - Doesnt take it to account game state. The data isnt sophisticated enough

    Thanks for the tips my man, I'll see what can take from there and apply it. I have a lot of knowledge about football and tennis in general, not so much about lower leagues so most of my bets will be on the mainstream competitions but I'll try to study and get more info about this as it goes.

    I've done very bad over the years cause I always made big bets and I was lacking discipline but I always loved to bet on sports and never tried to grind it and see if it work and said that now that I'm in a good position and I can afford this to give it a go. GL with your bets.

    Just put a 14 fold acca on… both teams to score.

    I do a free daily spin on sky Vegas. Here’s the kicker lol I won a ten pence bonus lmao so I put it on the acca. Potential returns is just under 400£.

    imagine if it comes in just from a 10p bet :grinning:

    Once I was at a poker tournament and there was this guy that had an acca with 25 games. He picked all the football games from Monday and bet 1-2 goals in the first half for all of them.He bet like £50 and won £60.000.

    Imagine being this lucky lol.
