When looking at where I want to invest my punting dollars, I will often consider a number of possibilities. Football, tennis, even cricket.
Time and time again though, I just come back to horse racing. I find the best bets are the ones where you have an edge, and have the least human factor.
When you’re looking at team versus team, there are what, 10? 20? 30? combatants all competing, and an off day can ruin you. Humans are such volatile creatures, with a temperament that can vary massively, but bet on animals and a lot of the emotion can be taken out of it. Obviously “fixing” needs to be ignored, as it’s going to happen in any match – boxing comes to mind, again the human factor.
Always take care to put your cash where you have an edge.
