How To Bet On Horse Racing Without Breaking The Bank

With so much emphasis on the dangers of gambling these days, many people are treating the endeavour like illegal drugs by staying well clear. However, this is an incredibly silly way of looking at what in truth is mostly a fun and safe exercise. Sure, you hear horror stories about people who start gambling and then lose everything (including their family and friends) but I put it to you these people we’re simply prone to becoming an addict. I’ll bet they also drink 20 cups of coffee each day and smoke 60 cigarettes. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do about that small percentage of people who become addicted to absolutely everything enjoyable they come across.

Considering all this, I thought today might be a good time to release a short article highlighting the best way to bet on the horses. You see; without bets taking place, horse racing will one day become unprofitable and, therefore, cease to exist. As it’s such an ingrained tradition within our culture, I feel we mustn’t let it disappear just because a few silly people can’t control their urges. Still, if you fit that category, you could learn a lot from the points made below.

Setting Limits

No matter what you’re betting on, setting limits and sticking to them is one of the best ways to ensure you don’t waste too much money. At the end of the day, if you want to place a $200 bet on a horse, why not reach that amount first with smaller winning bets. You only need 10-1 odds to turn $20 into this much. Regardless of what happens, you need to be strong enough to walk away from the betting shop or log out of that website when your money is gone.

Bet With Friends

There are plenty of websites online these days where you’re able to bet on the Kentucky derby legally, so why even go down to your local betting shop at all? Wouldn’t it be more fun to invite your friends round and all place individual bets using the internet? That way, you’re free to drink, eat, smoke and do whatever else you feel like without a friendly security guard breathing down your neck. This is much the same for all the major horse races, and I hear the British Grand National is also worth a flutter.

Leave Your Bank Cards At Home

Lastly, if you’re really that out of control that even after setting spending limits and betting with your friends, you still can’t resist emptying your bank accounts to carry on, then leaving your cards at home should make this impossible. Of course, 99 out of 100 people who gamble are absolutely fine and never encounter a single problem with relation to overspends, but we have to explain all this for that small 1% of people who don’t know their backside from their elbow.

Right my friends, I’m off now to make a cup of tea and check the odds on the 3:30pm race at Cheltenham. I’ve been given a decent tip, but I don’t feel this is the time or place to divulge. Have fun betting though, I know I will.

Catch you next time!
