The age-old question comes up again. Just like when someone asks about smart football bets, someone asking how to bet is really looking for a fool-proof betting tip. And just like with any other kinds of sports bets, there is an element of risk, that's the fun part.

Do your homework. If you aren't going to put in a few good hours of research on a bet, then go ahead and keep in your office pool and have your dog make your picks for you. I can't tell you how many times I've heard someone crying about a bet they made that lost them a lot of money. Almost every time, a bit more research could have changed that person's bet.

Don't rush into anything. If you're not sure about how to place an exotic bet--don't do it. Get the bookmaking basics under your belt first and then expand your horizons. The possibility of losing a lot of money is real when you bet online--realize that and you're on your way to being smart.

Have Fun

Bet what you know to start. Once you get comfortable with that, move into sports you know a little less about. Most of all, make sure you bet sports that you like so that you can enjoy watching the tournaments while waiting for their outcomes.
