Did you know that 98% of people don’t profit from horse racing?
Whether you’re an occasional weekend punter or persistent gambler, chances are that if you sat down and calculated your total profits and losses over the past 12 months you’d be in the red.
The main reason punters inevitably lose in the long run is because they believe gambling is down to luck – this is false. Sure, there will always be an element of risk involved in any type of betting, but if you really want to make consistent profit you need to view your betting as a calculated investment, rather than a game of chance.
In the vast majority of horse races, without inside information you’re really only looking at a very small part of the full picture. Trainers and connections usually have a good idea of how their horse is going to perform in a certain race, and this isn’t always reflected in their odds. Having access to reliable info gives you a huge advantage over the bookies, and allows you to pick and choose your bets based on value, rather than luck.
Gambling is addictive, and the bookies know it. Punters often fall into one of two traps – either chasing their losses, or gambling their winnings until they eventually lose. We’ve all been there, a few hundred pounds down and whacking even more money on the bumper at the end of the card in the hope of breaking even. Or winning a few hundred, and putting it all on a dead cert in the hope of an even bigger win. Impulsive betting never works in the long run, and the key to making long term profit is maintaining discipline and consistency in your bets. The easiest way to do this is by using a staking system and sticking to it religiously.
No matter how good your info is, not every bet is going to win. That’s why it’s important to have a staking system in place to minimize losses and maximize profits over a long term period.
To create our recommended staking system, you first need to decide how much you can afford to put aside to make a ‘pot’. Once you’ve decided how much to invest in your ‘pot’, simply divide this number by 50. The amount you’re left with after dividing is the value of each ‘point’ you will bet.
Example staking plan: £100 investment ÷ 50 Points = £2 per point
When we send info to our members, we always advise how many points to bet on each horse (e.g based on the example above, if we advised a 5 point bet you would stake £10).
By doing this, you can monitor your profits over a daily / weekly / monthly period, and withdraw money from the pot when you’ve reached a level of profit that you’re happy with (e.g 50 points profit). Likewise, if several bets lose in a row, your losses are always limited to your pot.
Our members consistently make between 30-60 points profit per month, which allows them to withdraw this profit and continue into the next month with their original investment.
