How to be a profitable horse racing punter
We all want to be profitable with our bets, and horse racing is one of the toughest sports to do that in. However, with big odds available on horses to win, you will find yourself in a position where you don’t need to win many times to get in profit. For example, if a football punter had two winning bets out of 10 then because of the short odds with football matches, they
would be at a loss. However, a horse racing punter has more chance of being profitable due to the bigger odds on offer, even if they only have two winning bets.
Mindset, and understanding this is very important for punters, and the first obstacle you need to get over. All punters try to win as often as possible, but horse racing punters generally win less than any other sport, as the races are harder to predict and the chances of winning are lower. You need to understand this to help your approach. If you place 10 bets and eight of them lose, that doesn’t mean you will lose money. You need to understand this, be patient and wait for those two winners to come along.
Patience and discipline are the two most important traits a horse racing punter needs. Believe in your system, and trust that you are doing the right thing. Don’t let losses get you down and eventually if you are the punter you believe you are, things will come good. More than any other sport, you have to play the long game when betting on horse racing.
