Discipline…

  • Hi i was just wondering if you could all share your approach to staying disciplined?what do you use to keep track of your profits?how do you stop yourself from being stupid with the money in the exchange?Thank you

  • New to matched betting?

    My Matched Betting Academy is the best place to get started. Learning the fundamentals takes 10-15 minutes and you’ll make £15 in the process.

    This is the hard part for me. Several hundred in exchange. It’s so ooooooh tempting to have a punt. I admit to doing it with varied success.

    that feeling goes away with time. once you’ve been going a couple of months its all just numbers on an excel spreadsheet. it is for me anyway.

    It helps if you don’t really care about whichever sport you’re betting on, it becomes pretty abstract. I’m not a football fan.

    I don’t think it’s necessary to keep track of things cumulatively, only to know how much you’ll be profiting from each matched bet and then move on to the next.

    I tend to have to fight doing the obscure sign ups with rubbish rollovers on weeks like this week when it’s quiet and not much happening.

    I have the occasional ‘bet’ using for example my Sky £5 free bet and other free bets now and again…gives it some excitement other than that I never properly bet, like to see the profit on my excel spreadsheet rising up and up! That’s enough to keep me more than happy!

    Likewise. I’ve been doing this since about June and never have urges to bet anymore. Can’t remember the last time I had a “normal” bet. Meanwhile the profits continue to grow…..

    Sometimes I like a little bedtime trade where I will chuck all my exchange money on a back or lay and hope the market comes in my way. Some times it has been successful other times it has not.

    Doesn’t bother me anymore… Used to love a punt but now I’d rather have a steady stream of risk free cash

    staying disciplined is pretty easy when you are guaranteeing profit every single week. why would you want to gamble when you are guaranteeing not losing anything? I see it as a win win because I used to expect to lose 30 to 40 quid a week on accumulators and “bankers”. Since Last September Ive averaged 100 quid a week profit. What else do you need to keep you disciplined?

    Yeah but I just can’t resist the odd £5 free bet on a punt. Sometimes you can do quite well with it and although you probably lose out in the long run, it’s nice to have some excitement sometimes imo!

    Thank you for your replies. Do you think things will pickup this month?seems quite quiet with the offers so far with wh replacing the bet 20 pre match get 10 in play offer with an alternative that is not so great for instance. Is January normally a bit quiet?
