The single biggest reason punters go broke

As much as we like to make profits for our members, it's just as important that we save money. After all, you can't continue to bet and profit if you don't have a buget.
Unfortunately, most bettors lose all of their money. In some cases, they try to "win it back" and end up losing their car, house, and sadly, sometimes even their family.
Because of this, friends and family will often worry about a football bettor because they don't want this to happen to them. And neither do I.
Rather, I'd like you to be proud to tell people you make money by betting on football. Not only is it a great way to make a living, people will be impressed by how you were able to "figure it out" when so many others fail.
Now, onto the topic of saving money.
Poor money management is the single most common reason why bettors go broke.
Here's some advice you can use to avoid this from happening to you.
Set aside a dedicated amount of money (a budget). Do not use your everyday spending money or your savings. Take some of your extra money and put it into a fund specifically for betting.
Never commit more than 3-5% of your budget at one time. This requires a good level of discipline (remember, one of the three keys to being a successful bettor). It may be tempting to go after the "big wins," but what happens if you end up with a big loss? Game over. The more your bankroll grows, the more money you'll be betting (and making), but it should never be above 3-5%.
Take breaks. Betting may seem like a logical game, however logic is only part of it. Actually, logic is just a small part. Emotions and fatigue will heavily affect your ability to make the right decisions. Remaining stable and consistent is how every successful bettor gets to the top of the game.
I hope you've found this helpful. Of course this isn't everything there is to know about bankroll management.

America is dying to know what President Trump is going to say

Pro-tip: Don't call tonight's speech a State of the Union address

President Trump plans to use his first address to Congress to outline an ambitious — and contested — agenda that ranges from tax cuts and regulation rollbacks to road projects and a proposed 10% hike in defense spending. You'll recall his Inauguration Day address , in which Trump portrayed the United States as a nation in decline, using rhetoric that did not always match reality. Will we get a repeat? "All I can do is speak from the heart and say what I want to do," Trump said during an interview with "Fox & Friends." The address is scheduled for 9:10 p.m. ET. Here's how to watch it and what to expect. This is  how his predecessors approached the big speech.

Doctors can't say why these cancers are up dramatically in millennials and Gen-X adults 

Someone born in 1990 has double the risk of early colon cancer and quadruple the risk of early rectal cancer as someone born in 1950, according to a startling new study . While scientists have not pinpointed an exact cause, prime suspects include obesity, inactivity and poor diets, according to researchers. Most young adults are tested only after symptoms appear, which often occurs after disease has already developed. Right now, health groups don't recommend average-risk young adults get screening tests, like colonoscopies. (That could change in light of the study.)

Kansas man accused of fatally shooting a bar patron thought he killed an Iranian

Witnesses say Adam Purinton walked into a bar in Olathe, Kan., on Wednesday night, yelled "Get out of my country," and began shooting. Srinivas Kuchibhotla, 32, was killed. Purinton's neighbors say he's not racist, but 911 calls out Tuesday are pointed: Purinton apparently thought he had killed an Iranian man , according to the caller. (Kuchibhotla, who worked at device-maker Garmin, was from India.) For your reading list today: "Disguising fear and hate as pragmatic problem-solving, it has already birthed the 'Muslim ban' and indiscriminate immigration raids this year," writes Siva Sundaram, a medical student at Harvard, was born and raised by Indian immigrant parents in Rockford, Ill.  Read his full column.

'Moonlight' is an incredible cinematic achievement that shouldn't be overshadowed

Indulge us for continuing to talk about the Oscars — but trust us when we say it's important. Yes, the flub was a huge deal but the importance of "Moonlight" is even bigger, and it didn't get the moment it deserved . 1) It's the first winner to tell a story primarily about black people that isn't about focused on racism, the civil rights movement or slavery. 2) It is the first to have a gay protagonist. Media coverage mostly has investigated how such an embarrassing mistake could happen on such a big stage. We're using this moment to make sure we don't lose "Moonlight" in the story of the envelope.

Survey says: New England states, FTW

The best states to live in are *not* in the South, according to the U.S. News & World Report top 10 Best States report . New England states claimed three of the top 10 spots. Massachusetts topped the list because of its educated population and health care opportunities. New Hampshire, which came in at No. 2, was praised for strong racial equality in education and gender equality. Southern states performed the worst. Mississippi and Louisiana claimed the bottom two spots. Read the entire report.
