In our previous post, we looked at the 3 main mistakes that gamblers make in football betting. This time round we want to go one better and share with you tips on how to be successful in football betting. At the end of the day, it can be summarized into proper information and the right strategy.
Here are the 4 tips to get you on your way.
#1 You need to have the right information
Thanks to the internet, you have no excuse for not having the right information to help you make an informed betting decision. There are so many sports websites where you can retrieve football news, statistics, results, and so much more. It’s therefore important for you to dedicate time to retrieving sufficient team information to enable you make informed bets.
#2 Pay attention to expert opinion
In our previous post, we discouraged you from over relying on pundits. This still remains true. It’s very okay to listen to expert opinion but don’t make it the basis of your betting decisions. Carryout your own fact checking to ensure their opinions are not misleading and only use them to strengthen your analysis.
#3 Be sure to check the team news
As an important starting point in getting your facts right, identify one or two good sports websites that ensure you have access to inside information such as team news. The lineup that the team intends to start with, list of player injuries and suspensions will give you a pretty good idea of what the team’s strength will be in comparison to the opponent. This helps you in making a prediction on who is likely to emerge the winner in a match. It becomes fairly predictable because you get to understand how the absence or presence of a player or players can potentially affect the outcome of a match
#4 Avoid placing too many bets
Most of the time, the idea of a big win may distract us and tempt us into making too many bets during the match day. This is a mistake. The more the bets you make, regardless of the research, will reduce your odds of winning. It’s therefore important for you to learn to pick a few good games with good odds and focus on them. This level of discipline will make you thrive in football betting.
It’s important to note however that football is a very unpredictable sport. Many decisions are made on the pitch during match day such as referring decisions, player injuries, change in tactics and many more, that impact results and most of them are simply unpredictable. Therefore, it’s important to learn to expect the unexpected.
