Online Sports Betting

Betting on the results of sporting events has always been a popular hobby. Now with the Internetand online betting facilities, placing a bet has become easier than ever before.

A wager can be placed in the usual manner like with a bookmaker or through the bet exchange, a new innovation on the Internet. Through this, individuals can place bets against each other with the “house” taking a small commission.

Usually, betting online means that you will be betting against a point spread. The purpose of the point spread is to even out the betting so that the amount bet on the underdog is equal to the amount bet on the favorite. This guarantees a 10% profit for the house on half the bets made, no matter which team wins. When a betting line mirrors the public view of the two competing teams, it usually does well.

To bet online successfully you should be able to spot trends. While this may not guarantee a win, it is a valuable indication of a game’s outcome. Remember not to bet on a team just because you like the team. Choose teams for the right reasons, not just because you are optimistic about your favorite team.

Ideally, you should not bet on your home team, as it is difficult to be objective. When you bet, do it with conviction and limit the number of games you play, as you need to concentrate. Don?t ever overstretch yourself. By limiting your weekly plays to somewhere between 5 and 7 games you will be able pick more accurately as well as keep track of your records.

Before betting you must evaluate teams regularly. Just because you were lucky enough to win last week does not mean you?ll win again next week. Gather as much statistical information as possible; it is usually available in newspapers. Always rely on your research and don?t follow emotion or hunches. Your emotions are not as reliable as what’s written in black and white!

Northrend Gold Farming Spots – Spots That Make You Easy Money

People have always looked for Northrend gold farming spots where you kill mobs for loot. This is probably the most used method to make gold in WoW at the moment, and it does work. You will see a lot of players kill mobs for crystallized elements, leather or cloth. And even though everyone does it, they still sell really well. But I am going to tell you about a more comfortable way to make gold in WoW.

While others fight all sorts of powerful mobs and have to stay alive, you can make gold by doing nothing but sitting. Fishing has always been a nice and relaxing way to farm gold in the game. That’s why I started looking for some Northrend gold farming spots where I could fish. And I found them.

There are a few types of fish that sell really well. These types are the Glacial Salmon, Musselback Sculpin and Nettlefish. Cooks needs these to make a Fish Feast. The Fish Feast is used in raids. You set one down and the whole raid can eat from it. It restores 22500 Health and 19200 Mana over 30 seconds. But the best part about it is that if you feed for over 10 seconds, you receive a buff that gives 80 Attack Power, 46 Spell Power and 40 Stamina for one hour.

5 Fish Feast usually sell for 35 gold.

Now, you can make money with them if you are a cook, or simply gather the needed fish and sell those. I usually refer to the spots where you can find these types of fish as Northrend gold farming spots, because they make gold for me.

You will find Glacial Salmon in the Grizzly Hills, Musselback Sculpin in Borean Tundra and Nettlefish in Sholazar Basin.

Important Tip No. 1

In those locations you will find Sculs of Fish that you can use even if you have the Fishing skill at level one. But you can find all those types of fish in Wintergrasp. Since there aren’t any Sculs there, you will need to have your Fishing skill up to 450.

Important Tip No. 2

If you fish in Sculs, you also have a 50% chance to get a Pygmy Suckerfish every time you catch one of those types of fish. These sell really well on the AH, roughly 25g per stack.

Who says you have to battle dragons and all sorts of fiends to make gold in WoW. I make all the money I need by relaxing and not touching the computer very often. That’s why I believe that this is the best of the Northrend gold farming spots.

Where To Farm Gold – WotLK Secret Spots

I’m sure that many World of Warcraft players ask themselves where is it best to farm gold. WotLK however, hides many places where you can go and just stuff your inventory with the most valuable resources and items, and then just sell them to the Auction House. Do you want to find out for yourself a few secret spots in Northrend where you can make tons of gold? Here are a few points of interest on the Northrend treasure map.

1. Snowdrift Plains – Storm Peaks. Especially for engineers, this is a great spot to farm gold. WotLK has brought a new ability to engineers, salvaging, and Snowdrift Plains hides plenty of golems which can be salvaged for expensive engineering parts, like Overcharged Capacitors or Volatile Blasting Triggers. Also, the dwarves at this location drop Relics of Ulduar, items used to rise the reputation with Sons of Hodir. Players usually buy these reputation items because the Sons of Hodir faction does not have a tabard, so you cannot rise this reputation by clearing heroic instances.

2. Hidden Hollow – Icecrown. Even the name of this spot suggests the fact that it’s a secret spot (LOL). It’s a small cave situated under Onslaught Harbor, in western Icecrown. The mobs in this cave are all elite, but with a decently equipped character you shouldn’t have any problem killing them. They drop plenty of Frostweave Cloth. Since these mobs are elite, they have higher chances to drop blue and epic gear, and they also drop higher amounts of cash then usual mobs.

3. Icecrown Citadel – Icecrown. Well, this isn’t exactly a secret spot, but since you can make more than a couple of thousands in just 1-2 hours here, it’s worth to mention. So, what can you possibly farm inside ICC? The mobs are impossible to solo here, so you’ll just have to assemble your own raid and reserve the BoE items for yourself. You don’t even have to kill all the bosses. At least one BoE item should drop from the mobs in the firsts quarter of the instance.

I really hope that you will take advantage of these spots and rank in some quick cash. Also. there are many more other excellent spots to farm gold. WotLK can be a very profitable side of World of Warcraft where you can make money, all you have to do is find the one that perfectly fits to your play style.

Don’t Be a Suited Sucker

It appears to me that every time poker gives birth to a new player they all have the same birth defect – an unnatural attraction to suited cards. I don’t know if it’s the fact that the cards almost match, but don’t. I don’t know if people think they were dealt a pair. I just don’t know. But if I had a dollar for every time someone played a suited card then… oh wait, I do have lots of dollars from that! Never mind.

Here’s why playing cards just because they are suited is stupid and you shouldn’t do it.

First, suited cards bring maybe 1-2% more value preflop than unsuited cards. So if you aren’t playing K6 unsuited, why dear God why are you playing K6 suited? “I read they make a flush about as often as a pocket pair makes trips.” That may be true; however, the next four points will show why this still doesn’t make them profitable cards to play.

Second, the flush draw player is the EASIEST player in the world to spot. That means you’re going to have to overpay to draw after the flop and/or you will not get paid off when the flush hits. My Amish grandmother can spot a flush draw player!

Third, if you’re drawing to a flush and get action after it hits, you better either have the nut flush or check the cards for a board pair. Flush drawers are so easy to spot that the player with the over-flush or the full house is praying that you hit.

Fourth, depending on what you’re holding, you might get sucked into a pot where you made top pair crappy kicker. You originally entered the hand looking to make a flush. But you hit top pair and now you think it might be good, so you decide to stick around and find out.

Fifth, and this is the most pathetic player of all, you may have a stroke and decide, when your flush misses on the river, that you can bluff the other player out of the pot. Good luck with that. It’s a great way to make a really large bet into a pot that you’ll lose over and over and over again.

Are five enough reasons enough? Here’s the best way to look at suited cards: Suited Cards aren’t suited until AFTER the flop IF the flop gave you a legitimate flush draw. Prior to that, they are just two cards. Play them or not based on their value, not the fact that the little symbols look alike.

If you do this you’ll save yourself a lot of money and embarrassment. You won’t tilt off because you won’t make idiotic moves, and you’ll be able to play every hand with confidence and control.

Making Money Using Gambling Systems to Supplement Your Income – The Truth

To many people, the life of the professional gambler seems glamorous and inviting. But as in most cases in life, gambling, like any profession that offers the possibility of high rewards, is difficult and demanding. The truth is that most people who manage to make any profit from gambling over the long haul, work very hard, and have to sacrifice to earn the money.

When I say earn, I mean just that. I don’t mean to discourage you if you have your heart set on being a professional gambler, but knowing what you are getting into before you begin is one of the best ways to make sure you will succeed. You can make money from gambling systems if you have enough money to fund your bets and support you while you learn the game and adapt the system to suit your own talents and style, but being under funded is the number one reason that many gamblers fail. Gambling, even if you are very skilled, still involves risk and therefore losing streaks. It takes money and discipline to survive the lean times.

Surviving the losing streaks financially and emotionally is the mark of a true professional. One thing that professionals use to keep their sanity and not go on tilt permanently is statistics. I know you think that statistics are used by many gambling systems to beat the games, but they are also used to reassure the players that the tide will eventually turn in their favor. That is the strength of a system, whether it is a poker, blackjack, roulette, horse racing, dog racing, craps or any other system.

That is the good news about using a systematic method to beat any game. The not so good news is that no one is going to sell you a way to make a killing at any game right out of the box. You will have to take the information they give you, adapt it to your own talents and style, and then work very hard and endure the ups and downs of the gambler’s life.

When I say adapt the system, I mean that a good gambling system will teach you certain statistics, or situations to look for in any game. For instance, a poker system might teach you how to figure pot odds and play position, while a horse racing system might teach you how to spot an overlay or a false favorite. The most important lesson you can learn from any gambling system is how to spot a good bet. But any of these lessons will do you no good unless you have the personality to take advantage of them.

For instance, if you are a person with a limited attention span who needs fast action and stimulation to remain focused, grinding out a living sitting for hours counting cards at a blackjack table won’t work for you. On the other hand, a system that teaches you to scan the toteboard at the race track and to spot an overlay and then to bet and see the result of the bet in two minutes, may be better suited to your personality type.

Finding the right system to match your personality is the most important part of gambling success after understanding what you are up against, of course. The next most important step is taking the time to learn how to gamble successfully while making small bets. To learn any other trade, you have to go to school or learn on the job. The same is true of gambling. So research the games and systems to find what is best suited to you and then prepare by practicing and slowly increasing bets as you learn the game. That is the best approach to success in any endeavor.
