If you want to be a successful sports bettor, it is essential to track your bets. This practice brings several benefits – it allows you to keep track of your winnings so you can adjust your staking size, and it also allows you to spot mistakes and analyze your previous decisions.
There are several ways to track your bets. In this article, we are sharing the best methods of doing so.
Using our spreadsheet is a go-to method. We have developed a simple spreadsheet in Google Sheets. It will allow you to type on all of your bets as you place them. It will then show you all the most vital statistics automatically. You can see your results for each sport, each bookmaker, each type of bet, and so on.
Make your own spreadsheet
You can also make your own spreadsheet. The benefit of making your own sheet is that you can make it personal and you can make it track all the categories you want it to.
It does require some skills in either Excel, Numbers, or Google Sheets, but it’s actually not overly complicated. If you’re in doubt, it’s always possible to hire somebody to make your spreadsheet. There are freelancers online who can do it for about $100 when you give exact instructions. Not too bad when you can get a customized solution.
Bettin.gs is a surprisingly nice platform that allows you to track your bets in an easy way. Every time you make a bet, you type it into their platform, and it will automatically track your results along the way. In many ways, it works just like a spreadsheet – the difference is that it has a user-friendly interface where you can easily manage your betting portfolio.
In order to bet with Bettin.gs, you have to sign up and create a user. You can have a free standard account which is good enough for most people, but it’s also possible to pay $12 per month and get access to more advanced stats. We recommend you to start out with the free account, and if you like it enough, you can eventually upgrade.
Betwatcher is another online tool that you can use to track your bets. It has been created by the Danish betting community, BetXpert. Betwatcher is free to use when you sign up as a user, so that is a huge benefit. However, the platform can be a bit more complicated than the ultra-simple Bettin.gs. You can track a lot of things though, and it is a really useful tool for professional bettors.
There are other platforms out there as well. Having your own spreadsheet, or using a simple service like Bettin.gs, is usually the easiest and best choice. But if you are looking for something else, try searching the web for solutions.
