I see many people when mentioning the word "betting" they think this is a game of chance and useless.

But I personally think that not all bets are the same. To me, sports betting is just a passion or it can be called an interesting thing for people who have a passion for sports. A simple example for you to understand is when you and your friends watch a program about football, you want to bet with your friends on which team will win in the end, and today with the development of the Internet , that has expanded to online sports betting but it is important that you know how to choose suitable, reputable websites and importantly, you must have a passion for sports and sports betting. Have knowledge about the sport you bet on.

And finally, I hope those who read this article can give me some opinions on this issue? What do you think about my point of view?

It can be a thrilling way to engage with sports and add an extra layer of excitement to watching games. Like you mentioned, it's important to choose reputable websites and have a good understanding of the sport you're betting on.
As for your point of view, I think it's spot on. Sports betting can be a fun and enjoyable activity for those who have a passion for sports and enjoy the thrill of predicting outcomes.
Also, if you're interested in exploring new betting options, I recently came across OLX88, a new casino that seems promising. You might want to check it out for a different betting experience.

"Sports Betting" is a category keyword. >> when you visit an online gambling website, the main categories usually will be: Sports Betting (or just Sports), Live Casino and Slots

sports betting is a huge industry with lots and lots of addicts (sadly).

Absolutely, I completely agree with you. Betting, especially on sports, can be more than just a game of chance – it's a passion for many. It's like when I got into slots online; it's not just about the luck but also the thrill of the game. With sports betting, having that passion for the sport and knowing your stuff can make all the difference. It's all about making informed decisions and enjoying the ride. I'm interested to hear what others think too.

Several years ago I made a profit of £5000 (UK pounds) over about an 18 month period betting on football (soccer). Won't bore anyone with the details but I did record lots of match results in a database to try and give me another edge in the picks. I also already have excellent knowledge in general about football clubs and history. However I stopped it after having one really poor night where I lost what would have been a winning bet 90% of the time and then chased the loss. Which proved I couldn't stop emotion getting in the way. It also made me realise how time consuming it was keeping the database up to date and selecting the bets across many leagues and competitions. Also my final balance sheet was quite scary as it showed wins totalling something like £106k versus losses totalling £101k. Which seems a heck of a lot of money for betting just to end up with a profit return of £5000 in 18 months.

Have never returned to my original methodology but recently have returned with a much less time consuming approach and only experimenting with very small stakes to see if I can prove any worthwhile profit over a sustained period. So far it's just over break oven. Will continue it into the next football season but if I can't get to a more worthwhile profit margin to justify moving to higher stakes being worthwhile, I'll just quit again.
