When it comes to betting on horses, we’d be lying if we claimed that we didn’t to have a favourite trainer, a favourite jockey or even a favourite number.
It’s no coincidence that there are a number of catch-cries around the top names in the industry.
What about at the footy? You never back against Geelong at the Catery? Or in the NRL, you always back the Unders when it’s raining?
Another example would be wanting to back a horse. You notice the odds tumble in and conclude that it’s a moral and now you get involved.
The problem with these beliefs is that they are fallible.
They’re actually examples of confirmation biases that may be limiting your punting.
