How much does a professional gambler earn? How to bet like the pros

Sports betting, like any other hobby, game or activity, allows you to acquire new skills that can be honed over time.

By practicing and learning new techniques to improve your personal performance during the session, it is possible to excel. But it takes discipline, training and commitment to become one of the best professional gamblers in the industry today.

Although it is not easy to achieve, there are people who make a living from sports betting and who manage to generate a recurring income thanks to their good performance in this activity. But you have to dedicate a limited amount of money, be very consistent in your training and know how to develop the ability to read the sport in order to base your bet on solid data.

In this sense, information is crucial to keep up to date with how everything related to the sport is developing. This data can provide an extremely useful overview when it comes to placing a bet, and can help you win a big prize if the luck factor is also on your side.

Nobody is born taught, so if you want to know how you can become a professional sports bettor, we are going to give you several keys that can be of great help when it comes to gaining experience and becoming a professional in this field.

The Decalogue of the 'pro' bettor: expert tips to become a pro sports bettor


Some of the best things you can do to improve your performance at bookmakers are as follows:

  • Stay informed. As we said, information is power, especially when it comes to sports betting. If you have no idea about something, how are you going to bet your money talking about it? Chances are you'll fail out of sheer ignorance. That's why it's important to be up to date and know all the ins and outs of a team, an opponent or a match. Sometimes, the key is what happens off the court.
  • Always rely on objective facts. We all have our hearts set on a competitor or a team that we want to win, but that won't make you a good bettor. You have to think with your head and always have clear ideas. If something is not likely to happen, don't bet your money on it happening.
  • Never bet on impulse. Neither out of anger nor out of euphoria. Emotions are a professional gambler's worst enemy, and it's important to keep them in check. If you don't feel you have the ability to make an informed bet, it may not be the time to put your money on anything.
  • The luck factor is there, but less than you think. A common misconception is that sports betting is all about luck. In reality, although the luck factor is there, a sports bet is the result of an advance reading that is made about a sporting event, based on a series of data and information that act as indicators that something is likely to happen. Analysing these correctly and interpreting the outcome well is what usually leads professional bettors to make significant profits.
  • Start with small bets. If you are new to sports betting and don't want to take too many risks at first, it is important that you don't bet big. Go slowly, put small amounts of money on the line and accumulate small rewards. As you gain experience, you will be able to bet more money and take more risks, but it is better not to do so at first.

What does a professional gambler look for?

If there are people who make a living from sports betting, it is that it is possible to train. And if training is possible, then there are aspects that can be studied and on which professional bettors focus all their attention.

Normally, the first thing a bettor who wants to move up a level will consider is to specialize. Knowing a bit of everything is no good in sports betting: you have to specialize, know more than the rest and be an expert in the sport you want to bet on.


For that, it is important to resort to information. Good information, the kind that contains concrete data and good references. When you become a professional, you will be able to play a lot more with bets, but until then you should focus on gaining experience and improving your performance at bookmakers.

In addition to data, a professional bettor looks at the performance of the sportsmen, their reactions before and after each session, popular opinion and forecasts. With a critical eye, it is possible to reach your own conclusions that will inform the decisions you make when placing your bets.

How much does a professional gambler earn?

This is the question many people ask themselves. Although the amounts depend on how much money they bet and how often they close their bets, we can establish a range for professional bettors who dedicate their time to betting.

We are talking about a range of between 5,000 and 10,000 euros per month, without deducting taxes payable to the Treasury. We can get an idea of what the earnings of these professionals are, but not exactly how much a professional gambler earns per month, as there are too many factors that can vary from one month to another and, therefore, they may not earn the same amount every month.
