I love it when someone accuses me of playing like a girl because these days’ girls play a lot tougher than when I was growing up. Title IX was just making an impact on athletic programs when I was in school. In 1972 when Title IX, a federal law requiring high schools and colleges that receive federal funds to provide equal opportunities for male and female students, was established it didn’t need to be fair. The boys had several sport options and the girls were cheerleaders. Even then I knew I was not cut out to be a cheerleader.
Developing sporting programs for girls and young women continues to face some difficult battles for equality. Sports programs are continuously reconfigured to finance girl’s sports. Although it is supposed to be equal, many girls programs continue to be inferior to comparable boys programs.
So what does this have to do with mindset? Well, it shows that we are only as limited as our beliefs. When you think small, then you are going to play a safe game. Choosing to look at the BIG picture, however, opens the playing field to a wide range of possibilities to help you reach your fullest potential.
Payouts are what a bettor gets out of what he wagers on any gambling event. These payouts may become positive or negative according to the odds he chooses during a particular sporting event. It is positive when he chooses an underdog and then wins. Meaning, the betting amount may earn 1.5, 3, or even ten times the original betting money. It is negative when one bets on a favorite and wins; however the payout is smaller than the amount that one had bet, say 10, 15 and up to 20 percent less. The smaller the risk, the smaller the payouts is. Most professional gamblers prefer to bet on those who are favored to win. Very few put their money on long shots or the underdog.
To benefit for a better sports betting payouts, one has to find a reliable bookie or a sports book that is safe and pays fast. There are several bookies that claim that they are the best and reliable sports books. But one has to be aware of bookies that ran away with your winnings. There are credible bookies and shady bookies as well. It is one’s own prerogative to select what will serve him best. Once a good sports book is found, one has to be familiar with its rules; offerings of lines, analyses, statistical data and even up-to-date information on sports injury. The terminologies, sporting events, the teams’ pairings and racing schedules should be studied. Betting options, the kind of bets and payout odds must be considered.
If one has to indulge himself in online sports betting, one must also study every individual and team listed in the sporting events. In case of team events like: basketball, baseball, football, hockey and other group games, knowing each player is necessary. One has to know the strength and the lineup of every team. Even the coaches and the trainers for that matter must be figured out. In horse racing as well as dog racing, one has to know the racing history of the animals listed for the race, must be studied as to their breed and ages. Even in contact sports like: boxing, wrestling or mixed martial arts, wagers on a superior athlete is a sure way to better sports betting payouts. Knowing these basic knowledge and information about sports and its dynamics, one has a fair chance in making the right decision to make a winning choice.
