'Life is inherently risky. There is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing.'
As much as we'd like to lay claim to it, Sporting Index didn't invent 'risk'- but it is the cornerstone of why sports spread betting takes excitement to the max.
It’s a question of risk versus reward. It's pedal to the metal stuff. It's not just about being hopeful of landing a winning bet, it's the lure of a massive return. It's about being proved right and being rewarded all the more for it (of course it can go the other way if you're proved wrong). It’s when a striker - whose goal minutes you've bought - gathers the ball and unleashes a shot in the dying seconds. You're looking at a make-up of 0 or 90 minutes depending on whether it's buried in the top corner or slams back against the crossbar. Or when a team's fly-half - whose kicking metres you've sold - tees up a penalty close to the touchline. A swing of 40 metres depending on whether it sails between the sticks or drifts wide.
Sports spread betting delivers a much stronger sense of value, satisfaction and emotional connection to the event. And the element of the 'unknown' is right at the heart of it. The risks are obvious, the potential rewards great, but the excitement is off the scale.
