If you want to find a good horse racing bet the best place to start is with a top handicapping system. When I say a handicapping system I mean one that helps you to evaluate the horses and to understand which horse offers the best value. Finding good value is what profiting from your betting is all about.
The reason it is important to use a systematic method is that we as humans have a tendency to vary from moment to moment and day to day in our judgment. We have good days and bad days, days when we are sharper intellectually and days when our emotions may be calm and mellow or volatile and troublesome. The one thing about having guidelines that you use to find a good bet is that they will never vary.
No matter how good a handicapper may be, he or she is human. The human element, emotions, moods, etc., is the one reason that even a person who is good at picking winners, may still not be able to make a profit gambling. Ask yourself this one question, “On my best days, am I capable of making a profit from my bets?”
If you answered yes, then the struggle to make a profit from your wagers is simply a matter of being more consistent. How do you achieve consistency? You must always do things the same way. In other words, you must use a system that doesn’t vary. Of course, no one on the planet is selling a horse racing handicapping method that always picks winners. So some effort on your part is necessary.
Smart handicappers find a few good systems, try them out and learn them well, then adjust them to suit their own needs and individual talents. But once they get them set, they don’t tinker with them much. The biggest adjustments are made because of changing trends or track conditions, not because the user’s moods change.
Therefore, the best horse racing handicapping system to find horses to bet is one that you have tried and found suitable to your own tastes and emotional makeup. I know it sounds a little weird to talk about emotions and horse playing, but the emotional factor is the most likely thing that will put you on tilt and that is when you lose money. Therefore, find one that will always be the same and that you will not be able to make a mistake with when you’re having a bad day.
