So the key to success betting horses is to read some good books by authors who are known for their expertise and then to use the information they recommend. Several top authors come to mind whenever you talk about handicapping. Their books sell well so you would think that the people who read them would be winning, but that isn’t always the case, because, like I said, it depends upon how you use their information.

Good horse racing books and eBooks about horse racing handicapping teach you how to take that information and use it to find good priced winners. You still have to figure out how to do that, however. No book is going to automatically make you a winner. It would be nice if they could, but then again, every person who read a book would be a winner and soon there would be no losers. That wouldn’t work.

My advice is to read as many of those books as you can and at the end of each book, write down what you think the key points were that the author tried to make. It may all wind up just being about 5 sentences, believe it or not. But those 5 key points added to the points from the next book you read and then the next will begin to be a handicapping method of your own. While no single author can make you profitable, putting the top writers together and boiling it all down to a method you can understand and stick with, will certainly put you on the right track.

The old saying, knowledge is power is certainly true and no where is it more obvious than at the race track. Trying to handicap horse races and make money off your bets is difficult enough, but imagine trying it without good information? So maybe it isn’t just knowledge that is power, but information is also power, in fact, the best way to say it might be that information converted into knowledge is power.

Without a source of past performances or other handicapping material, all the knowledge of horse racing in the world won’t do you any good. On the other hand, if you have good past performances and speed sheets and a ton of information, it won’t do you any good unless you know how to use that information. see here

Doing this could lead to catastrophic losses.

Let’s Break It Down

In addition to adjusting the payout, the sports book provides a “point spread.” The “point spread” works the same as the odds payout in leveling the money bet on each game. Any betting situation that offers two comparably equal choices will produce the best results.

When comparing all the gambling techniques ever invented there are few that are better than the Parlay. Depending on the sports book they would either charge $110 to win $100 or $60 to win $50. Bet minimum amounts when losing. This is due to the fact that sports betting is handled differently than other even money wagers. Do not let a winning streak give you a disregard for money. A bet selection method that produces a 56% win rate will actually provide an overall profit by simply “flat betting.” So playing for double win Parlays would also show a sizable profit. Keep in mind that 44% would be losses.

The term Parlay applies to pyramiding profits with a series of two, three (or sometimes more) consecutive wagers. Following any loss I would revert back to my starting wager and lock in any profit I had accumulated up to that point.

Always keep in mind, you’re gambling. Obviously, when given the choice you should always choose to pay the lesser amount.

2. Bet heaviest when you are winning using the “houses” money to increase your bets.

5 Rules To Profit By

It’s perfectly ok to take on a little extra risk to try for a bigger win when betting back profits. You should be aware that $110 to win $100 is a 10% commission whereas $60 to win $50 is a 20% fee. It’s NOT ok to chase those wins by risking more of your own money.

3. There is an element of luck involved in every game of chance (good luck and bad) When you’re running good you want to ride it out to the end and make the most of it. With that said, it is crucial to avoid any betting system that recommends doubling up after a loss even though the odds would seem to favor you not being wrong 5 x’s in a row.

*(please use 3 bullets)

When using the Parlay method it is important to know the odds as they apply to your chances of winning or losing.

7 or more occur 1 in 140 decisions. Never gamble with money you cannot afford to lose. When you are betting on the underdog you receive the odds while when betting on the favored team you will be paying the odds.

In using a three win Parlay your starting wager of $20 would produce a $160 win or 7 to 1 on your money.


4. Wishing you the very best of luck always.

Games such as casino Craps (even money wagers on the “Pass” or “Don’t Pass” line bets), Roulette (red/black, odd/even & high/low), Baccarat (player/bank wagers) and most sports betting are all well suited to Parlay wagering.

The next time someone says that you can’t win betting on sports… In this way, a starting bet of $20 wins $80 after two back to back wins. This being the case, you would also realize that the chances of betting wrong 5 x’s in a row are also 31 to 1. A successful double win Parlay will yield a profit of 3x’s the amount of your original bet.

5 or more occur 1 in 36 decisions.

Using the Parlay method it is best to combine it with a strong bet selection system. The profit potential of the Parlay takes advantage of any sequence of consecutive wins. Never try to recoup losses by increasing the size of your bets. After one or two successful parlays I would then begin to increase my starting wager attempting another two win Parlay.

If I manage to increase my original bankroll by 30-50% I would then try for a three win parlay. You are paying them to book your bet. Even though when betting sports there are only two teams and it should essentially be a toss up, we know it is not.

The only betting system that takes this into account are “up-as-you-win” systems.

Applying the Parlay technique to sports betting requires a few minor alterations. There are no sure things. Initially, I would try for a two win Parlay using a minimum starting wager. .

The odds of choosing any even money wager correctly 5x’s in a row are 31 to 1. The best results will come with a maximum two or three win Parlay approach.

Here’s how it would work. Always lock up your profits when you have them or they could disappear just as quickly.

Any system that doubles up following a loss can quickly lead to catastrophic losses following any brief string of losing bets.

Although in the “long run” the odds are a mathematical certainty, over the short term (the time which you are using the system) they cannot be counted on to perform this way.

The safest methods typically apply to “even money” wagers where the likelihood of winning two, three or more bets in a row are fairly commonplace.

Sports Betting And The Parlay

Sports books adjust their betting “line” to reflect an odds payout for the favored team or the underdog. Never double-up after a loss. Systems that only increase wagers following a win combine both excellent profit potential and protection from a serious loss.

Based on my 40+ years of gambling experience I find that the best approach when using the Parlay method is to not try for the long odds associated with attempting 4, 5 or more consecutive wins. Have a definite money management system in place. you’ll know better than that.

Kendler created the IRA, The International Racquetball Association. Racquetball is not televised very frequently as it is difficult to film and keep track of the ball moving at high speeds. Soon afterwards in 1969 Robert W. Joe came up with the sport at the Greenwhich YMCA in a handball court. Open championships in Memphis, Tennessee is one of the few tournaments that gets air time.

Today Racquetball has not been growing like it was in the 1970s and 1980s but the fan base stays strong with an estimated 5.6 million players.

Joe named this sport, ‘Paddle Rackets’ which eventually was renamed ‘Racquetball’ by professional tennis player Bob McInerny . There are currently three associations that handle professional games. When Racquetball is televised, the U.S. Sobek played both tennis as well as handball but was looking for an extremely fast paced sport that mostly anybody could easily pickup without a large learning curve for the rules. These associations are the International Racquetball Tournament, the Women’s Professional Racquetball Organization and the Legends Tour. In 1973 Robert left the IRA and formed two other racquetball associations none of which have became as prominent as the IRA. Finally, in 2003, the USRA changed their name for the final time to mimic other Olympic sports associations and coined themselves United States Racquetball (USAR).

Racquetball was originally created by a man named Joe Sobek. Sobek continued promoting the sport which was easy for most to pickup since over 40,000 handball courts exist across America.. Eventually the IRA became the American Amateur Racquetball Association which changed its name again in the late 1990s to the United States Racquetball Association. Solidified the rules and created the very first official rule book.

In 1952 Joe founded the IPRA, The International Paddler’s Racquets Association see here
