I realize that you may already have an account at one of our affiliate sports books prior to joining my site. Or you may have an account at another sports book. Regardless I still ask you to open an additional sports book account from one of the banners above where you are not yet registered and deposit funds. This will ensure you get the best lines possible and help keep the site free.
1) Being Under Capitalized. Do not be disillusioned to think you can make a full time living on a minimal bankroll.
2) Not having enough sports book accounts funded whereby you are not getting the best number available. Betting -1.20 when -1.14 is available is just burning money.
3) Not following proper money management procedures. There is no such thing as a lock in this business. However risking more than 2% of your bankroll on a game will guarantee you will not be around long term.
