It is certainly possible to make a decent amount of money from your Football Prediction activities but to be able to do this you must get into the habit of treating it like a business. Sure, you may have heard of, or even experienced yourself, someone having a massive win by placing an accumulator on a number of teams to win. That is all well and good but the people who really make their Football Prediction pay are those elite few who take the time to place their bets carefully and don't let their judgement be clouded by thoughts of that big pay day.
The pros have accounts with many bookmakers so that when they have decided on their selections for the day they can find the best prices that are available. Many people can't really see the point of this but I can assure you that those slightly better odds can really make a big difference over the course of a football season.
As well as the bookmakers there is now a new kid on the block in the form of the betting exchanges. You can quite often find that the prices at the betting exchange beat even the best prices available elsewhere at the sports books so they form an invaluable weapon in your quest to increase your Football Prediction profits.
You also really need to keep accurate records of all of your betting activities. I don't mean only the winning bets. It is human nature not to want to think about the losses but you must record them all. You will be surprised at the conclusions you can then reach when you study your betting activities at the end of each season.
Lastly, by all means take some money out of your betting account to treat you and your family but make a note of it in your records. My advice would be to do so only when you have reached certain milestones with regard to your profits. For example promise yourself that you will take your family out for a nice meal when you have reached a thousand pounds in profits and again when you have reached two thousand. In this way you will not eat into the funds you require to maintain a profitable Football Prediction system in the longer term.
By following this advice you will find that you are motivating yourself to keep up the good work and proving that you have what it takes to run your Football Prediction venture as a real business.
