A great way to learn about gambling on sports is participating in sports betting forums. A forum (aka: message board, posting board, discussion group, newsgroup, blog) is a place on the web where you can register for free and exchange information with other sports bettors and handicappers from around the web.
It can be a great resource to not only help you become a better capper, but to tail winners from amateur handicappers who are picking games and having success with a high winning percentage.
People come together from all parts of the nation (and world) and post their selections on the days games. Often times you'll find some good regional info that you may have otherwise not been privy to as there's just too much information out there to absord.
Another great benefit from participating in forums is that over time you create some great relationships which turn into camaraderie that is one of a kind and not found elsewhere. I don't know about you, but I don't know many people who share the same passion as I do about betting on games. Imagine a place where that's the main topic! It's somewhat heavenly!
It should also be noted that if your going to join a forum, you should treat the other members with respect, even if you disagree with their selections or analysis. Treat others the way you'd like to be treated. If a guy is posting constant losers, thank your lucky stars and start fading his picks (going opposite). This can be a great way to make some easy moneyh!
On the flip side, some really bright minds can be found in this type of environment, many who come back daily and year after year to post their thoughts on the days games. Often times you'll come across some hot injury or lineup info that you may have otherwise not seen which can save you from a much unwanted losing bet.
Lastly, many online sportsbooks have tight relationships with sports handicapping related portals and offer their forums exclusive specials that can be a nice addition to your sports betting arsenal.
