Something that is very seldom talked about is transferring strategies and
methodologies that you may have created in one sport to another. The more you
bet and the more professional you become, you will start to understand that
many strategies are completely transferable from one sport to another. As long
as you have done your background work on the sport and its markets first then
you should be able to see which of your methods you can transfer. The ability
to be able to do this can increase your betting portfolio dramatically, as well
as creating a very easy way for you to get into another sport relatively
How do you start to look for transferable methodologies? I
think that the best way for me to explain how to do this, is by taking you
through an example. Initially, you need to have a look at what is similar
between two sports. As a lot of people start betting on horse racing I shall
look at ways of transferring strategies from the horses to other sports. When
beginning, it is best to look at similar sports and a similar sport to horse
racing is greyhounds, it also happens to be one in which I have just started to
dip my toes. So why is greyhound racing similar to horse racing? Well, most
obviously, this sport is based on animals and not humans, it is a race and a
number of the statistical measurements are similar to horse racing. Please do
not get confused, I am not saying by any means that horse racing and greyhound
racing are very close to each other, but just that they are similar enough to
be able to transfer the skills made in horse racing with relative ease.
Once that you have decided which sport you are going to look at, you
need to find out what information there is out there that you can use to your
advantage. The first item you will need is a terminology guide, and in the
Betting School members' website there is an article which explains all the
greyhound terminology. Next, you need to become very familiar with the race
cards. You can get race cards for greyhound racing from a number of websites.
Each site displays them in different formats and with different amounts of
For example, I personally feel that the Racing Post has
the most user friendly display of the race cards and, on top of this, it also
has the largest amount of information on each of the dogs' past races. However,
the William Hill greyhound form has other features such as telling you the dog
with the best start and finish speeds, conveniently shown in a graphic format.
You need to choose one that you find the easiest to work with and remember, or
even better - write down, any information that is given on other sites which
you can't get on your chosen site. This will then allow you to use multiple
sites for the maximum amount of information.
Having done this, spend
the time to go through a number of race cards until you are totally happy that
you understand precisely what everything on them means. As you can see, in a
very short space of time, you have made yourself totally comfortable with
reading the race cards, and knowing the best places to get the information that
you will need in order to convert your strategies from one type of racing to
