Full Time Esports Betting Foundations
Even though large majority of people like to bet casually, there will always be a select few who will take things a step further and dedicate more time to a thing that used to be their hobby.
Like everything in this life, there are pro’s and con’s to this as well.
Before we start with the actual tips, I just have to say a couple of things.
- There is a huge difference between a person who is betting full time and a person who is addicted to betting. We DO NOT promote addiction of any sorts, and we have stated our position on this on several occasions.
- Every person should acknowledge that luck plays an important part in betting. Since you are on our website, I suppose that you are fully aware of it already.
- As a community, we advise you not to pursue full time betting, as our main goal is to have fun and amp up the games we usually watch. This guide is dedicated only to people who are considering to pursue full time betting on eSports.
Now that we’ve got that covered, let’s explore what it takes to go from a casual betting enthusiast to a full time betting pro.
In this guide, we will explore:
- What is full time betting
- How to make a switch from casual to full time
- Final checklist for making that decision
Let’s get the ball rolling.
What is Full Time Esports Betting?
Full time betting is an approach that requires you to drop everything else that you are doing for a living and dedicate your time solely to betting.
It essentially requires one to replace work with betting and live solely from that one source of unstable income.
Is that even possible?
From my own knowledge, it is.
However, considering the fact that there are different people out there, I have to say that it takes a special individual to achieve it.
It takes patience, a profitable strategy and a lot of knowledge. Betting professionals spend hours tracking down the right bet, the right odds and, in the case of eSports, they don’t bet on a single game.
How to Make the Switch?
When it comes to eSports betting, casual bettors bet on the game they are familiar with.
You know it yourself — play a game, become familiar with the teams and events and then start betting.
Full time betting is like constantly being in a clutch game where you can’t afford to lose.
Here’s what you’ll need to do to get started.
#1) Get Familiar with All eSports
When making a switch to full time betting, the most important thing to acknowledge is that you will need to get familiar with every single game you’re betting on.
When I say familiar, I don’t mean that you should become a pro gamer.
Instead, learn about the tournament formats (Bo5, Bo3, etc.), the best teams, historical statistics and just the general direction of all games.
You don’t have to be an expert in playing, but you do need to become an expert in everything else.
#2) Try Before You Buy
Before you commit your time and money to full time betting, take some time to test it.
Save up some money, take 30 days as your free trial and set up a betting schedule.
During those 30 days, do nothing but that and write everything down.
If you feel good and have decent results then you can be confident that you can, at least, start off on the right foot.
Never test the depth of water with both feet.
#3) Manage Your Resources Smartly
One of the most important things you can do, in this stage, is to create a separate bank account for betting.
Here you will deposit money you are prepared to bet with and it will make it much easier for you to track your return on investment.
This will be your business account, so to speak, and you will treat it as such.
#4) Have a Plan B
Needless to say, you should always have a plan B.
And I mean that in every way imaginable.
If you have a special bank account for betting, then you should always have funds on it, just in case you run into a losing streak.
If your strategy takes time to work, rely on the amounts in your backup account to get you through.
#5) Find a Winning Strategy
As I’ve said on numerous occasions, there is not a one-size-fits-all eSports betting strategy.
Before you start full time betting, you should already have a winning strategy in place for your particular style.
Maybe even several different strategies.
One of the strategies that brings the best overall ROI is called scalping, which is a term used in stock trading.
It can be successfully implemented in eSports betting by betting often on smaller odds, therefore achieving consistent, smaller profits.
In the end, only when you have a firm grasp on what works and what not, you can go ahead and start your free trial full time betting process.
#6) Always Find the Best Odds
Betting full time implies closely watching the latest and the most up to date odds.
We will provide you with such service in the future, but for now the best way to do that is to create an account at every reputable sportsbook and just keep close track of the latest odds.
Open up separate browser tabs and just compare the odds.
If one website offers you an odd that’s even 0.02 higher then use it without thinking too much about it.
To get started, go to our Sportsbooks section and pick ‘em out.
#7) Employ the Winning Mindset
We have discussed the importance of having a winning mindset in one of the Betting Academy guides.
This is one of the most important things you can do as a full time betting enthusiasts.
Think positively at all times and always think about the possible solutions to every problem you encounter.
If you fail, brush the dust off your shoulders and move on.
If things don’t work out for you in full time betting, then just go back to the casual, fun betting you used to enjoy previously.
Remember — never a failure, always a lesson.
#8) The Final Checklist
There really isn’t a great deal of philosophy going into full time betting.
You know that it’s risky business and you also know that an odd of 1.1 can sometimes drop you.
If you are still keen on moving on with this full time betting thing, here are the # questions you should ask yourself before fully committing:
- Do you understand why you’re winning and losing?
- Can you already make money on esports betting?
- How much money do you need to make each month to be able to live from betting?
- How many hours a day can you work?
- Do you have an income that you can use to build up your betting bank account?
- Does your family (or friends) support your full time betting ambition?
- What’s your backup plan if things go haywire?
- Are you young enough to bounce back?
- Do you have a winning mindset?
- Are you prepared not to have a regular monthly income?
Be brutally honest to yourself and answer these questions.
If you have a positive answer to every question, then I advise you to go ahead and try your luck and smarts in full time eSports betting.
You will be a member of the select few who are ready to risk a lot in order to live their passion.
If not, then you are welcome back to our planet of fun, casual eSports betting.
