Winning requires layers and layers of correct actions. The picks are fundamental, but even once a winning selection is delivered actions in alignment with maximizing profits are available to act on.
Wagering the best point spread available in the final two hours before kickoff will add 7% to the bottom line while transforming would-be losses into pushes and wins.
The biggest obstacle between wagering and profit is that most people wedge gambling between the two. Gambling seldom generates a bottom line profit. When business decisions are made from a highly charged emotional place and money is leveraged in haphazard amounts as if it were a toss of the dice profits seldom follow. The most influential bottom line decisions for many a football gambler are done late in the afternoon from the bar.
