You should not follow betting systems blindly. Most games have an independent event and mostly, it all depends on luck and skills gained over the years. As a beginner, it is important to start small. You should only bet an amount of money that you can afford to lose. With time, you can take higher risks. But relying on past events or betting systems to make money through gambling may not work for you. Raising or lowering your stakes in gambling due to certain situations should not be your guiding principle in gambling. With time, you will learn more about what works and what doesn’t. Learn patiently instead of relying on betting systems that may not work and that may lead to huge financial losses.

Payment in online gaming may be done through the use of credit cards. Bitcoins are becoming more popular these days. You may also gamble online using bitcoins at genuine bitcoin casino sites. To play in a bitcoin casino, you will need to get a bitcoin wallet, mint bitcoins and anonymously play online at any of the best bitcoin casinos in the world.

  1. Mitigating risks

Some people believe that online casino gambling is riskier than normal casinos. This is not true. If you identify reputable casinos online, you will enjoy and maybe win on your bets. It is important to identify genuine casinos that offer genuine gambling chances. Though in most cases, casinos have an edge in betting, some casinos play by the rules and in such cases, your chances of winning are very high. There are various casino player forums online that can help you get some tips on gambling. You may learn a few things that may help you avoid the risks involved in gambling. Through social media and networking, you can also learn additional tips on online on risk mitigation.

What Does the Post-PASPA Gambling Landscape Hold for the United States?

In May of 2018, the US Supreme Court overturned the earlier PASPA ruling that had effectively outlawed any form of sports betting in the country. While there had been some notable exceptions, mostly in illegal form, it was clear that the United States was entering a new era,

As we head towards the end of the year, it’s a good opportunity to reflect on the decision and to assess the pros and cons of legal sports gambling across America.

Early Adopters

It’s fair to say that the PASPA ruling has led to a trickle of developments as opposed to a flood. When America got the go ahead on sports betting, some of the biggest names in the industry made an early move and we saw some gambling floors built in established Las Vegas casinos.

Betting operations also moved to the racetrack and some early sports sponsorship deals were struck between operators and clubs across America. A high profile merger also took place between a well known brand and a US Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) site so there were some early movements in the wake of the decision. To date, only a few states have adopted sports betting and the forecast for growth remains steady rather than spectacular.

A report in November 2018 claimed that in two years, the number of American states allowing sports betting would grow to 24 but is this a good move or are there concerns about the developing situation?

Building the Coffers

One of the clear benefits of introducing sports betting would be the additional revenue that each individual state stands to earn. Back in August of 2018, a report carried out by Oxford University suggested that the industry could provide a $14 billion boost to the US GDP on an annual basis and the performance of the gambling sector in other countries indicates that this is no wild claim.

Over in the UK, reports show that the gambling industry there brings in close to £14 billion annually so, in a country as vast and as populous as the United States, there must be scope to hit the $14 billion mark.

Keeping it Clean

Legalised betting will also help to bring the practise out of the underground and away from the world of criminal activities. The US has its own problems and in other countries where sports betting is outlawed, the criminals find a way to carry on regardless.

Elsewhere, the PASPA ruling has also opened the door for official sports sponsorship and some brands have been quick to adopt this. The NBA and NHL have been lining up betting partners while soccer side the Las Vegas Lights secured a high profile sponsor to bring much needed funds into the club.

The Potential Downsides

When the announcement from the US Supreme Court was made in May, there were some dissenting voices and that’s to be expected. Among the concerns was the issue of gambling addiction which can be evident in other countries while some sports governing bodies felt that legalised sports betting could usher in the spectre of match fixing.

A further concern may be brought to life as the situation develops: As individual states in the US choose to adopt sports betting, there is a school of thought suggesting that those that delay or refuse to allow the practise may see a rise in illegal activities.

There are some points to consider but on the whole, the outlook for sports betting in the United States is a positive one and it will be fascinating to see the situation develop through 2019 and beyond.

3 Tips You Must Know to Bet on the Right Horse

Horses were the primary mode of transportation in ancient times. People developed an art for identifying the most suitable horses for traveling across vast distances. This art included horse races to determine the endurance and speed of particular horses. Therefore, horse racing is an ancient sport and so is horse betting. Remember, breeders of particular horses would want their horses to win, making competition fierce. They would have their supporters place bets as well. In many cases, these breeders and supporters would bet against other breeders and supporters. That is how horse betting developed. In 2008, this industry was worth $115 billion. You may have participated in it as well. Sadly, some people bet on the wrong horse. Then they quit betting because they made huge losses on that horse. Here are 3 tips you must know to bet on the right horse!

Watch the Horse in the Paddock
A paddock refers to a small enclosure where people keep horses. In horse racing, a saddling paddock is a fenced area that holds the horses as the jockeys prepare them for the race. For example, the jockeys saddle their horses in this area or they parade them for the crowd. You can watch the horses as their riders prepare them for the track. Look for signs of strength or weakness in these horses. For example, sweat spots near the horse’s kidneys are an indication of illness. Jittery horses may also be wasting energy outside the track instead of saving it for the race. Select a horse that is alert and calm. Remember, nervous horses are unpredictable. They might go off track easily, refuse to race, or perform dismally in the race.

Check the History of the Jockey
Emotions cloud someone’s perspective when it comes to high stakes issues such as betting a substantial amount of money on a horse. For example, you might go for a horse that looks stunning as opposed to selecting a possible winner. Therefore, you have to check other factors aside from the physical characteristics of the horse. For example, did you know that the top 10 jockeys worldwide win 90% of the races in which they participate? Therefore, picking horses ridden by top jockeys is a sure way of winning bets in horse racing. These jockeys perform well as long as they ride healthy horses. For example, top jockeys win races while riding horses that rarely reach the top three spot when ridden by other jockeys

Check the History of the Horse
Most racetracks have four categories of races namely a maiden, claim, allowances, and stakes race. Check your horse’s category. When did it get to this category? For example, betting on it is unwise if the race organizers recently bumped it from a maiden level to a claim one. You need to check the person who trained the horse as well. Does this person have a history of training the best racing horses? Examine the owner of the horse as well. Does he have a history of taking care of his horses? Select a horse with a perfect mix of historical data. In other words, details such as its category, trainer, owner, and racing pedigree should be exceptional. Picking this kind of horse means that your odds at winning in online horse betting will be high.  Good luck!

5 NFL Teams to Look Out For in 2018

As we get closer to the start of the 2018 NFL season, there is enough information floating around that even people that are not actively watching or listening should have a pretty good idea of which teams are expected to be at the top of the NFL this season. But let’s look a little deeper and consider their implied probability via the odds in betDSI.

The first team that we should keep our eye on is the Cleveland Browns. Got you! No, the Browns won’t be a contender … and despite the public thinking that they will win six games this season, I believe they’ll be lucky to get three.

 New England Patriots

The New England Patriots are once again the favorites to win it all. They have one of the easier schedules in the league this year, and of course, Tom Brady is Tom Brady. He is at the top of the list to throw for the most passing yards and the most touchdowns in 2018. But that said, there have been quite a few personnel changes, and there are some questions that remain to be fully answered on the offensive line.

 Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles are listed as the second most probable team to win the Super Bowl next winter. Their schedule strength is middling, and they have a unique situation where either of their top-two QBs can step in and win big games. They also have the fourth-best defense in the league, and with Michael Bennet and Haloti Ngata adding depth to the defensive line, the Eagles will be disruptive up front and tough to beat.

 Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings picked up Sheldon Richardson for a one-year deal and added Mike Hughes at corner. To put it bluntly, the Vikings defense is going to be scary this season. The Purple People Eaters are back and opposing offenses are going to have a rough day each Sunday that they have to face Minnesota. Depending on where you look, you can find the Vikings at the same price to win the Super Bowl as the Eagles, but they opened as the 4th favorite at +1400. The NFC North is brutal, and the Vikings are tied for the 8th toughest schedule this year. But, you know what they say, defense wins championships, and they are No. 1.

 Green Bay Packers

The Packers got a raw deal with the cheap-shot on Aaron Rodgers last year. So, you have to think that despite having the hardest schedule in the NFL, they are coming out with a chip on their shoulder. The Packers opened at +900 (9/1) to win the Super Bowl tied with the Eagles as the second most probable. I think their schedule is probably too difficult given the circumstances to make the Super Bowl. But if they can stay healthy, they’ll play spoiler to a lot of teams throughout the season.

 Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers are the second only to the Pats in the AFC on the betting odds boards, and they are heavy favorites to win their division. Pittsburgh has a projected regular season wins total of 10.5 games, but even though they have cracked the lid on their season wins number year after year, they are underdogs to go past ten wins. The Steelers have one of the weaker schedules in 2018, and it should rank somewhere in the bottom two-thirds. Plus, they are only listed as underdogs against the spread on the early lines just once the entire season. And it’s only a 1-point spread that game comes against the Saints in NOLA. I see the Steelers pulling down 12 wins this year.

It’s the perfect storm for the Steelers in 2018. They have an easy schedule (if any schedule in the NFL could be considered ‘easy’) and this is most certainly Le’Veon Bell’s last season in Pittsburgh, so he has to keep his stock high. In addition to that, the entirety of the offensive line is returning, making it one of the most experienced and cohesive in the league. Big Ben should be well protected, and we could see a record year out of Bell. Pittsburg is also coming into the 2018 season with a top-5 defense. If anyone is going to unseat the Pats in the AFC, it’s Pitt.
