The start of the new football season is almost upon us meaning, once again, droves of us will resolve to make money out of our football betting.
Most will fail miserably due to a combination of factors such as lack of disciple and a failure to have a defined target in regards to what we want to win or are prepared to lose.
Here’s ten tips which may help you when deciding how and where to place your bets.
The first step to a profitable season has to be taking advantage of any sign-up or deposit bonuses that are on offer with your preferred sportsbook. You would not step over a cash note on the pavement so why fail to take advantage of a Guts Sports Bonus?
With a free bet or bonus in your online sportsbook account your set to go to war. The next all-important rule is to get the very best betting odds available about your selections. Over the course of a season the tiniest of fractions can tip the scales in your favour. Seemingly miniscule discrepancies – 8/5 (2.6) instead of 6/4 (2.5) for example – can and will add up to a significantly higher yield on your investments at the end of the year.
There are no end of so called football tipsters but most are of the ‘fly-by-night’ variety and their betting tips are based on nothing other than their own viewpoint with little or no statistics to support the reasoning for their selections.
If you are inclined to place your hard earned money on the say-so of someone else make sure their football betting tips have a firm grounding based on solid foundations with a verified track-record.
For most using a tipster is not an option, if you are going to gamble your money the only route is to use your own opinion, right? A better path is to use your own opinions but to populate them with the most informed news, stats and inside line imaginable.
A line on the latest team news is vital. The loss of a key player can see a team’s chances lengthen from 6/4 (2.5) out to 7/4 (2.75) in a heartbeat. The key is to have a finger on the pulse and utilise these snippets of information before the Guts Football Odds Compilers have managed to react to the news. For starters I suggest following the dedicated Twitter feeds of all teams where all sorts of news can be picked up.
Specialise: Betting on football is big business and the most popular league of the lot is the Premiership. It attracts massive media publicity with Premier League odds of every forthcoming game all over the press. Resultantly more bets are struck on Premiership matches and more odds compilers and analysts are employed to price-up games.
This makes value hunting difficult but the lower leagues and divisions still regularly offer outstanding opportunities as less time has been spent assessing these lesser known teams. Continue reading Come and have a Bet – Top 10 Get Rich Sports Betting Tips
