The negative side of social network in smart betting
Like in every other type of business, smart bettors too need to have some kind of relationship with others in the same business. It is easier to survive and to develop yourself. This way you have a background and a little bit of help from others.
Sharing information in this kind of activity can have both a negative and a positive side and effect on your possibilities. First of all, I would like to share some of the negative ones. Most smart sports bettors don’t like to share any information with others.
From experience, it is known that sharing too detailed info about betting strategies could mean losing the edge. By this I mean the advantage against bookmakers. This could happen if too many people start using the same strategy and the bookmaker finds out about the mistakes they are making.
Is it worth sharing information on sports betting?
Even though sharing too much can have a negative effect, having ‘’friends” or “colleagues” in betting the world can offer some good opportunities and has many benefits.
In some situations you do not need any new information, new strategy or financial help from others. The only thing you need is to get motivated again after a long streak of loss, a bigger variance. In such this case the only people who can help you with motivation are the ones from the smart betting industry. Those are the value bettors, arbitrage bettors, and so on.
After a longer friendship sharing even worthy information is more safer. As a result with new ideas and with new opportunities, you have better chances of staying in this business.
Getting and keeping friends in smart betting, value betting, and arbitrage betting industry is hard, it needs patience and the slow flow of information in both ways which is building up trust.
Sometimes sharing only a little bit of information without revealing the whole strategy can make a big difference for partners, without losing your edge.
