There have been many people who have been instrumental in helping me to write this book and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their support. Further details of all of the above may be found in the core contributor profiles in the Introduction.
Thank you also to all of you who took the time to complete the Sports Betting to Win survey. This provided many insights and ideas for structuring the book to meet the needs of potential readers. The people at Harriman House have made the writing and publishing of this book as simple and as stress-free as it could have possibly been, and have demonstrated great support and professionalism along the way. An important thank you goes to the three people who have significantly helped with their emotional support throughout the writing process — my family:.
Casper, for his unbeatable smiles and laughter, the best tonic at the end of a session at the laptop. Finally, thanks to all the others who have contributed either personally or through the writing of previous books or articles on sports betting, from which I have been able to capture gems of wisdom to pass on in this text. Sports betting is a huge growth area: the number of opportunities for betting both live and online, the number of sports and the number of markets available, have all increased significantly in recent times, especially since the advent of the betting exchanges.
And some have managed to create new careers for themselves as part-time and full-time professional sports traders. This is not a book about sports-betting strategy. It is a book about sports-betting discipline — what it is and how to get it. Discipline is key to long-term sports-betting success. There are plenty of books on betting strategy but little has been written on the area of sports-betting psychology and discipline. Nevertheless, it is the area of betting which causes most people the biggest challenges.
Perhaps in the majority of cases of failed bettors, a problem here is what has prevented them from being successful. This book does not present winning sports-betting strategies. It presupposes that you have, and know how to devise, such strategies. Instead, and more uniquely, it teaches you how to execute those winning strategies with discipline and professionalism, and helps you to establish a firm psychological foundation for long-term betting success.
This book has been written based on my own experience and expertise as a performance and psychology consultant, coach and trainer in the financial and sports markets. It is also built on the experience and expertise of leading people from within the world of sports betting and from the ideas and thoughts of people actively sports betting across the UK, who assisted in the research I conducted in the Sports Betting to Win survey.
It was my intention to write something that is both interesting and useful, an easy but engaging read, that provides insights into how to become more disciplined in your betting. Most importantly, I have tried to write something that provides practical steps for you to implement within your own betting. Whether you bet at the bookies, online, via the betting exchanges, on the spread markets, pre-match or in-running, this book can help you to develop the mindset and the behaviours required to be truly disciplined and to maximise your profits.
A growing number of people bet on sport each year. Some are casual punters, others more dedicated, whilst an ever-increasing number of people are attempting to join the new breed of professional betting-exchange traders. The fact is, though, that the majority of people who bet on sport lose money over time; only a very small percentage make profits in the long run. It used to be worse. The introduction and rise of the betting exchanges has had a positive impact not just on the number of people who are betting on sport, but also on the percentage who are winning.
Wally Pyrah of the Racing Post has extensive knowledge and vast experience of the betting world. He feels that the punters have never had it so good. The opportunities for betting, the markets they can bet on, the ability to bet online, access to information, software, availability of statistics and the ability to lay — all give a far greater advantage to punters than they have ever had.
However, despite all of these advantages, the percentage of long-term winners in the sports markets remains very low indeed. Many people who bet are unable to generate a desirable profitable return on a consistent basis. In some cases this is in spite of considerable in-depth knowledge and skills. Regardless of how sound their strategies appear and might actually be , they seem to fall short of their goals when betting.
Having a betting strategy with an edge, a positive expectancy — one that makes profits when executed consistently over time. Once you have the first, it is your ability to be able to consistently execute the strategy, to be able to stick to your rules and to stay disciplined regardless of your situation or circumstance, that will ultimately determine whether you are successful or not. Having both a strategy with an edge and the discipline to execute it would put you into quadrant 1 in the diagram below.
For people in quadrant 2, developing discipline is the real key for becoming profitable. For people in quadrants 3 and 4, the challenge is more on developing a strategy that has an edge — and then developing the discipline to go with it. Betting places you into an arena of risk, uncertainty and financial decision-making. The combination of these three factors presents a great challenge for the human mind and one which I would argue our biological and psychological conditioning is unfortunately not well suited to.
To think and behave in a disciplined way means that we must often go against our natural human instincts — and that is simply not easy. If you are to be successful at sports betting, you need to be prepared and able to cope with the range of temptations and pressures that overcome the vast majority of the people who enter the sports markets.
Betting presents you with opportunities to make, or lose, large sums of money in short periods of time. Discipline helps you to make money, keep what you have made and not lose too much when you do lose. I have seen at first hand just how many people lose and how they lose, the mistakes they make — doubling stakes when they have lost, and all the rest of it.

Preface — Bring Discipline and Professionalism to Your Betting Sports betting is a huge growth area: the number of opportunities for betting both live and online, the number of sports and the number of markets available, have all increased significantly in recent times, especially since the advent of the betting exchanges.
The low success rate in sports betting is interesting and gives rise to three key questions: Why is it that so few people are able to win at sports betting over time?
