I'd say lack of discipline, i find you win alot more if you plan out your bets in terms of specific games, rather than seeing whats availible on the spur of the moment.

Also after a big win calling it a day, take it and prepare for another day.

My feeling is lack of discipline. Go into any betting shop and most punters will be able to pick a winner. Managing your money so that the bulk goes onto the winner instead of spreading it round 20 different selections (for the fun of it) usually leads to being penniless.

I think it's impatience. Too many opportunities
to bet on, leads to impatience waiting for the
right bet.

I seem to do ok but then find myself holding out for a little bit more and getting caught out... also think I need to do more research and bet in less markets so probably discipline is the single most important rule here!! easier said than done me thinks...must.....bet... now!

For me relying heavily on prediction sites,who get it wrong,which means i get it wrong
Example tonight,1 site predicted Brentford V Carlisle as a draw, another one predicted Carlisle win, so i backed Double Chance on Carlisle,and of course Carlisle lost!.

I'd say greed, fear and superstition are big factors that most people can't control, and so keep losing.

Most punters already know they are going to bet on an event before even seeing the prices. They will think "man utd v liverpool", i'm having a bet on that, without even having a rough tissue in their head.

They sign up to tipping service for a fee?
They bet heavy on likely results that get busted.  Benfica today! PSV the other day! Bayern Munich the day before that!
They lay high odds and see the unexpected expected.

If you stick to one type of bet you increase your chances massively.  If you lay Chelsea every game changing your stakes to suit you will win.  They don't play everyday, therein lies the problem.

But they definitely aren't going on a 50-game winning streak anytime soon.

They can all be contributory factors I think, but not the reason.

What ?

There's only one way to win (to all intents and purposes) so it stands to reason that the inverse of that would be the reason for losing.

Very few punters appear to understand or even care about value in their betting, from what I have seen.

Back 1-1 every game, you will see why you lose.  Learn how you could turn that into a win and voila.  It's a lot harder looking at deceptive form and past results to gauge how something undeterminable will be determined.

Betting is like investing in Forex and commodities.
You must want for the easy money bets. Where the dice is loaded in your favour.
I see people betting on anything. On games no-one has a clue about.

Betfair takes its 5% or something like that, so the punters have got to lose. Betfair always takes its cut so the punters must over all lose.
The system is loaded against the punter, like roulette or games machines.

Chasing losses.
Lost a bit and then got frustrated and bet to win it back asap. Then lost a lot more.
What is lost has been lost. You must put it behind you.

Every bet must be seen as a chance to lose money, not a chance to win.
Only bet when the odds stack up for you.

Actually bet any old how and then I might win a bit more.

an example for not understanding value in their bets is first goal market....they lay first goal 0-10 minutes@ 6 odd....and the real odd is between 3.5 -- 4   so they lose

not understanding value bets, failing to protect the bank(over staking), failing to avoid or minimize loses , failing to analyze how ur betting profit and loss is going.
All of the above were my mistakes which i corrected to turn my account into a winner

doomed to fail from the off. without understanding why they came to those descisions you will fail more often. its like asking an untrained professional for advice. you just wouldnt do it.


In my own case it is greed. however putting a bit aside when you have it does help, because no matter how good you think you are theres a shock result round the corner.

Analyse your profit and lose. You might be amazed what you find out. It's boring and it's anal so most punters won't but if you could see where you are profitable ie over 2.5 in premiership or match odds La Liga etc you can then concentrate on the things you are good at and cut out the more of the loss making areas. Of course most don't have the discipline so will still bet on anything! We all have teams leagues that we feel we just can't get right but if you knew the actual facts and figures you would be amazed!

I've often thought a bet analysing website would be worth it's wait in gold. Any web developers out there get in touch!
