You can raise a little money just for free. Bookmakers lure you with welcome bonuses. I recently registered with BC Leon. After the drawing of their bonus, I received 15,000 rubles for nothing. Agree, not bad ?!
In general, yes, really.
Your question is very interesting, but here the key role is played by the "distance" at which a person bets.
The very activity of the bookmaker's office contains the so-called "margin", which allows bookmakers for a long distance to be in the black. Nevertheless, at certain intervals, players can be in the black and make money on sports betting really.
It is important that this field of activity in a huge number of people creates a false sense of an easy opportunity to make money. Players often mismanage the game bank, succumb to emotions, try to recoup, do not take into account the nuances.
Even if you do everything perfectly and devote an enormous amount of time to such an activity, there is no guarantee of success, as sometimes unpredictable results. However, due to the sheer number of people betting on sports, there are bound to be those who are profitable. But their share is negligible, otherwise the bookmakers would not increase their profits every year.
Hello! Do not in any way treat rates as a source of income. Place your bets just for fun. A small percentage of those who really make money on bets are not "SIMPLE AMATEURS". These are years of analytics, failure and experience.
