Grind is a word you hear thrown around quite a bit in the gambling world, but do gamblers really resemble the definition when wagering? Many bettors think they can find success overnight because they've been watching sports their entire life; those find out quickly that it doesn't work that way.

You have to give yourself opportunity and space to work, play comfortably. Allow your bankroll to breath by factoring in variance to your bet sizing, make sure you can sustain consistency in your bets time after time, not just put it all on a few games and bet yourself out of the game. Try and make this an enjoyable experience, I'll do all the grinding.

Good luck
