Naah, by no means is betting a job for me nor will it ever be, I'm still a college student at the moment. It's more like a lucrative hobby for me. 1 unit for me is $50, and the standard bet ranges from 3-10 units depending on how confident I am. On the contrary, I think backing dogs is quite profitable as long as you're smart about it and stake properly with regards to the favorites that you back.

i would like to know how many of you take betting as a job.me for instant,i work 1 job and have dveloping company.but the winnings payed for my last 2 vacations.aruba,mauritius full covared.myaverage bet is around 300euro.

as i am watching the gamblers lounge,it seems people are just writing,what they think.or guess.tey say value this value that,but fuck,if u bet 5 euro,who the fuck cares???u wan to win big or just fuck around?most of the companies out there are making money of this morons,who take for example levine @27 vs nadal.they say its value...fuck off,if u bet 4$.

so i hope u got my point and feel free to share your thoughts!

Ur statement is RELATIVE. Gambling could be a profit activity if you know how to do it... but if you are a beginner I wouldn't recomend you, start with a bet of 300 euro... Unless you are a rich person. The perspective is just different.. if you have payed ur vacation with your earnings.. that's great... I invite you to give us your opinion and considerations!

Let the people bet 4 uds.. perhaps they are starting.... Most of the people who post here, have a good knowledge about tennis.. and their comments are helpful!

This is betting nothing is certain! Bet what you want and when you want. I would never risk my car or my house... just what I can afford. Between 40 & 50usd is my average I hope one day I can get the level you have.. perhaps when I get a job, I will bet more... today I cannot do it.. because if I lose I do not have extra money to pay the rent.

i have never said that betting is certain,it is sport where one thing the smallest of them all can change the outcome of even 100% winner,if there is such a thing.i was just surprised that every time i come to forum there are mostly the same people writing,and i thought that they do it as job...i guess i am wrong.

Re: betting-job

no job is certain, people fail at simple low paid jobs

Place your bets and take a chance now!
Just make sure the Odds and the Gods are on your side!


Suppose it is not that case there is a God. Then time is infinite, and you are an empirically finite collection of chemicals. Since time is infinite and your youness is finite, then you have had infinite occurrence, and infinite variation. Since you have been infinitely varied, you would have attained the ability to forward, or compile, your memories. Yet it is not the case you have infinite regression of memory from time immemorial.
Hence, God exists.

Re: betting-job

Betting pays for the weekend and other luxuries and allows me to happily live the life of an unemployed bum at the moment.
It's something I enjoy and trying to earn a proper living out of it would probably take the fun out of it. I doubt I could handle the stress of it to be honest and would probably end up a severly bitter and twisted individual. I'll probably give it a go some day though just so I'll at least know if it was something achievable.

Holy sweet mother of mercy, you bet 50 units on Federer or Nadal to lose and 1 unit is $50. My god are you insane. 9/10 Fed or Nadal doesn't lose and your in the whole $2500 everytime they lose. This is no way to gamble, kids do not do this at home

Re: betting-job

I almost have it as job, I bet only for fun with hamburger money, because I dont have money to lose, but I own some webpages for betting, my latest one is a betting forum- http://www.betting-forum.com/ that I will try to make big. My idea is to have registered at least 2000 people registered after 5 months.

As for betting for living, this is something that only a few people can do. Poker pros and some in sportsbetting. People that clearly see the value bets.

I agree.

I hate comming on the forums and seeing people pick 10 $3.00+ dogs, and saying "Value". I havent ever picked a dog lol.
I guess you lose a lot of money with this tactics, if you pick only peope under the odds of @2.0 you will always end losing in long term.

Like you say poker seems to be the best for people-it certainly cant be a lot of sports as its becoming harder and harder imo

If you know what your doing with poker there is money to be made but i'm not convinced that many people can do it for a long period of time but best of luck to them

Re: betting-job

Just a(n enjoyable) hobby for me...wouldn't be good enough to "turn pro" even if I wanted to, and I don't. Plenty of challenges in the business world to be getting on with, with any luck.

Re: betting-job

Well, its not only to guessing the matches, its about keeping your nerves, especially when you know you play for money. When you lose you freak out and you just think how to win back that money and lose more.
I dont bet with money( well, only with hamburger money) for that reason, I just know I am not so good psychologically even though I guess a lot of matches.
To the gamblers here I recommend to play TT or PAW, this games help a lot.
