Pro Football Betting
Did you know that most recreational bettors don't make a profit from their pro football betting hobby. This includes bettors who know what they are doing and those who couldn't hit a barn with a ball from five feet away. Why? Most of the time the bettor wagering on football as a hobby can never find the necessary time to do all the work needed to find the right matchup to bet on. They may have all the skill in the world but they do not have the time to do the job right. They concentrate their research on T.V. games or the big matchups of the week and miss out on the opportunities the other games that might not be on T.V. or the big game of the week.
You need to look at every angle of each game and filter out the worst match-ups so you have only the best match-ups left. Then you need to research more, check weather, injuries, motivation, home/away factors and coaching. (this list could go on forever on what types of variables to look into) Then filter out your best picks.
Don't quit now. It is a tiresome job but you have to keep moving forward. If you take a shortcut now you will end up paying in the end. You need to keep researching and filtering through all the games to find the right matchup. By now that word has to be driving you crazy but it is the key to pro football betting. Research each variable and then cross check games to pin down the best opportunities to cash in.
Okay, you got all the information from your hours upon hours of research. Now what do you do? Are you ready to make some money betting pro football? Good questions if I don't mind saying so myself. Ponder that thought for a moment??.
Each week in the NFL is very unique. In order to give yourself the opportunity to walk away with cash in your pocket, you need to apply that information correctly in pro football betting. Here at Thehooks we meet and discuss pro football betting and specific games weeks in advance. We swap information and start filtering games out so we can narrow the best choices down. Typically we have a list with all our research by Monday for the upcoming games. Then we research some more and check into injuries, motivation, weather, and other variables. We meet again on Wednesday and come up with our best picks. We monitor and recheck the games and finalize our picks by Thursday. There is a lot of time in researching and trading information going on between us during this period. From Friday to Sunday we continue this trend to make sure there is no breaking news that could hamper our opportunity to have the highest winning percentage for the week. If you have people in your network that will put in this effort, are willing to spend the time, and you know will do the quality work that is needed, then I suggest you to do the same thing that we do. Without these qualities, your football betting season could be a long season. Betting pro football is exciting but it takes a commitment to have the money come rolling in. Do your homework or the final test, game day, could be a disaster.
