Do you think that there's not much more you can do to get to where you're cashing more tickets at the dog track? After all, you're probably thinking, I go over my program with a fine tooth comb and what more can I do than that? Well, maybe you don't need to do more. Maybe you need to do less.
Sometimes, it's what you do before and after you go over your program that keeps you from winning more money at the track. For instance, you can be the best handicapper in the world, but if you don't know how to bet or you bet too many combinations, you can still lose.
You need to put as much time and effort into figuring out your bets as you put into your handicapping. One very important aspect of betting is whether to bet at all. If you bet every race, there's no way you're going to end up ahead at the end of the day.
So one thing you may need to do less of is betting. Keep your bets as simple as possible, while still considering the best bets for each race. That doesn't mean that you never key or wheel dogs. It just means that you think carefully about whether a bet makes sense considering the return you're likely to get on it.
Sometimes, keys or wheels make perfect sense, especially if there are two or three dogs who are all real contenders in a race. But sometimes a box bet would be better and offer you a better return on your money. It's a delicate balancing act between amount wagered and probability of getting your money back - plus more - if those dogs come in.
If you're getting good at picking dogs that come in, but you're still not making money at the dog track, consider taking a really close look at the type and amount of bets you make. It might even be a good idea to take a break from real betting and make paper bets for awhile. This is a really good way to try out different betting types and see which one works best.
So, if you want to cash more tickets and make more money, make fewer bets that don't work. Sometimes, even at the dog track, less really is more.
