6 Famous Sports Betting Quotes to Live (and Bet) By

Last updated on 12 月 24th, 2021


From ancient proverbs to witticisms from philosophers, and words of wisdom from professional punters themselves – VOdds sports trading platform collected some of the most motivational gambling quotes to live by.

 

Some of these quotes are made for casino gambling but it might make you wonder, and some might even give an insight regarding your sports betting strategies:

 

“The excitement a gambler feels when making a bet is equal to the amount he might win times the probability of winning it.” – Blaise Pascal

 

An inventor, physicist, writer, and mathematician, Blaise Pascal was sought out by fellow mathematical theorist Pierre de Fermat to make out a betting dilemma.

 

With their tandem came the creation of the Probability Theory, which can now be used in any sporting event.

 

“Gambling is not a bad thing if you do it within the framework of what it’s meant to be, which is fun and interesting.” – Michael Jordan

 

This basketball legend has reportedly lost millions in gambling over the years due to failed money management. However, it seems like this advice actually came from experience. This quote possibly cautions everyone to bet carefully, and keep it fun and entertaining rather than ruining your career or life in the long term.

 

“If you must play, decide upon three things at the start: the rules of the game, the stakes, and the quitting time.” – Chinese proverb

 

The Chinese have plenty of betting experience. The earliest evidence of this dates back to 2300 BC in Ancient China with ‘a game of chance’ using tiles. This Chinese proverb is also one of the very first betting strategies that have ever been recorded. If you read the article regarding the common mistakes sports bettors make, you’ll be able to find the same particular advice.

 

“A gambler never makes the same mistake twice. It’s usually three or more times.” – Terrence Murphy

 

A poker player and a writer, Terrence “VP Pappy” Murphy has plenty of insights about the betting industry and those who are involved in it. This advice is particularly useful in the long run.

 

Most of us know someone, or have been that someone, who just can’t stop at one defeat, or constantly make the same mistakes. If this quote applies to you, it might just be the time to reassess the way you bet.

 

“Remember this, folks – I am a Hillbilly, and I don’t always bet the same way I talk. Good advice is one thing, but smart gambling is quite another.” – Hunter S. Thompson

 

This particular quote just means one thing: betting on your favourites is fun, but it’s not always the smart choice. Thompson was a journalist and author known for writing ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’ among other controversial books and articles. For him, in the world of gambling, it’s harder to leave the table if you keep chasing the wrong things.

 

“Eat your betting money but don’t bet your eating money.” Horse Racing Proverb

 

This wordplay actually has an importance even today. It’s not just about betting on a horse, but this quote can be applied to any type of sporting traders’ experiences.

 

The idea is actually really simple. It’s fine to spend the money you win from betting, however, you shouldn’t be gambling with the money you need to live with. In short, don’t bet on the money you can’t afford to lose.

 

There you have it! Use this new wisdom to know how to find the best sports trading platform like VOdds, that will take care of your account so you can become a more profitable sports bettor.
