There are a few reasons why people are unsuccessful when betting on sport. The biggest reason is they bet on too many games. Being selective and waiting for the perfect opportunity to put your money down can make all the difference in the world. This holds true for both sports betting and betting on the horses.
But the most common reason people lose when betting on sport is they bet with their heart and not their brain. This is when they go with their favorite team no matter what. They never bet objectively and make the ultimate mistake in betting. They allow their bias as a fan to creep into their betting decision and they can not be beaten for some oddsmaking pleasure.
To bet on any sport you must bet objectively. If this is done, the thought of betting against your favorite team becomes almost unnecessary. This is the trick to betting success. However, most people are so used to betting on their favorite team that they don’t even know how to bet effectively on any other team. As a result, they are very likely to lose a lot of money if they bet on the wrong team.

The Chicago Cubs are the only team in situs toto to be dominant when it comes to offense. They lead in hits, runs, hitting, on base percentage and won the first batting title for a Triple-A team. They don’t have overpowering pitching but they continue to be the best team in the Midwest and the second-best team in the National League.
In addition, the Cubs have won the last five years consecutively in the NL West. In the Central, the St. Louis Cardinals have been the best and most consistent team in baseball. The St. Louis Cardinals have had four different 10-game winners during the last 11 seasons. The Cubs will have a rough schedule and play 10 road games in a row on the road versus lefty starters.
The St. Louis Cardinals have the pitching staff to match anyone in baseball and with an ever improving offense, they should not fade as the Cardinals open a three-game series in Houston. The Cards are the best team in the National League and just may be the team to take the top spot in the NL Central.
