Psychology of Betting

Betting psychology is one of the most overlooked punting skills. It’s often what separates the winners from the losers. We all think it’s about strategy and having a profitable edge on a particular sport. What if that’s only half the battle?

Imagine being down 15 units at 5pm on Saturday. Do you stake up on your last two bets or do you follow the same strategy you started the day with? Do you hold yourself accountable and review the betting decisions you’ve made? Do you know your biases and how they affect your decisions?

Well Jack Houghton, author of Winning on Betfair for Dummies, is here to help you with the mental side of punting.
