Come and have a Bet – Top 10 Get Rich Sports Betting Tips

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.

1.

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?

2.

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.

3.

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.

4.

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.

loss of a key player

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.

5.

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

Betting on United States in the 2015 World Cup – What’s the Smartest Bet

The 2015 Women’s World Cup is gaining ground in popularity and sports wagers. Typically they are considered the perennial powerhouse, and the odds-on favorite. This World Cup is no different, even though Japan won in 2011. The odds before the June 6th opening were as follows:

United States 9/4
Germany       7/2
Brazil        7/1
Japan          7/1
France        8/1
Sweden       10/1
Canada       10/1
England      20/1
Norway       25/1

The list goes on (all the way down to Thailand at 400/1), but the last 6 teams standing are all in the top 9 we provided above.

Really the odds have nothing to do with how you would wager on the upcoming matches. After the United States beat China 1-0 (who they have beaten like 25 times in a row now) and Germany defeated France on penalty kicks, this epic semifinal match will be a heavily wagered contest.

So How Do You Bet on Women’s Soccer?

Granted, we wouldn’t consider women’s soccer as an “extreme” betting platform, but if you want to mess around with it, here are a few ways to make some money:

1. Play the Odds – If you missed the initial odds before the tournament started, you still have a chance to place a wager on the semifinals after the Australia vs. Japan and England vs. Canada matches conclude. However, since the United States is still the favorite, these odds will be about the same. We don’t recommend taking this action.

2. Money Line – If you like to wager heavy, this would be a good choice if the United States was playing Australia, Canada, or England. However, they are playing Germany and whoever wins this game is most likely going to win the World Cup in 2015. Investing a large sum of money on an “iffy” game doesn’t really provide great odds. The United States offense has been horrendous, and quite frankly, they should have been eliminated already.

3. Over/Under – When you start researching all the information, placing a wager on the over/under looks better. Germany has scored 15 goals in the 2015 World Cup (after their match against France), and the United States has scored 4 goals. However, the most important piece of information is that the United States has only given up 1 goal throughout the entire tournament. It’s pretty impressive to say the least.

3 Considerations Serious Punters Have to Make To Win Big

Punters have one goal above all others: to make money without losing their shirts over time. Hey, we totally get that. If you’re going to fork over cash that took you time to make, you want to get the most out of that money. We get that completely. What happens far too often is that punters get stuck, to the point where they give up great gambling gains rather than making something new. Don’t get discouraged. Here are three considerations that you need to make, especially if you want to win big.

First and foremost, you want to check limits for each sportsbook that you’re interested in. Some sportsbooks have lower limits to make sure that you’re not gaming the system. While this is noble, it ends up limiting you in terms of how much money you can make. If there’s a low limit, you don’t have to live with it. You do need to contact support at the sportsbook and see what you need to do to get your limits lifted. If they can’t or won’t do that, then you might need to head somewhere else.

Next, you want to look at those rebetting policies. Yes, this might mean that you have to dig into the technical guts of the site you’re interested in. But that’s the difference between a serious punter and someone else. They’re willing to put in the effort to get things done the right way, rather than just rushing in.

Managing Your Risks in Soccer Betting

Let’s face it — anything that involves limiting yourself is something that just isn’t exciting at all. However, there is something to be said about actually thinking about what you ultimately want to accomplish from every angle, and this means thinking bout how to manage your risks in the greater world of football betting. When you first get started, you’re very excited and the temptation is to bet on every game that’s open at the top sportsbook. Sure, that might increase your chances of winning big, but it also opens you up to a lot of risk. Very few people have an unlimited amount of money to throw around, so it just makes more sense to limit your risk as much as possible so that you’ll be able to bet for a long time.

Risks

First and foremost, if you have a chance to bet on the games, then you should definitely do so. It’s fun to bet on soccer games because it’s a sport that’s watched by tons and tons of people. In fact, some of your best friends might be soccer fans and you would have never known it before you got into the world of betting. A lot of people like to bet on games because it adds a new dimension to the game. However, the limiting part is to be able to step back and only bet on the games that make sense for you. If you have two teams playing that you really don’t care about, you shouldn’t bet just because the payout numbers look good. This is just one way to limit your risk.

Football betting

Betting on football is a massive and lucrative business with increasing numbers of football fans turning to the internet for quick and convenient football betting opportunities. Statistics released in the British Gambling Prevalence Survey of 2007 suggests virtually 2 million Britons wagered on football matches in the same year, creating a gross gambling yield of £300 million. When the FIFA World Cup kicked off in Germany in 2006, an additional 440 thousand punters in the UK alone put money on the outcome of the global competition.

Different Types of Bet

There are numerous different types of bet and below we have listed and explained them:

Win: The easiest and most popular bet to place. You are betting on your selection to win (be it a race or sporting event). If it does win you are paid out at the winning odds. For example, you bet £100 on Man Utd to win the Premier League at odds of 2/1. If they win the league you will receive €300 (your winnings and your stake returned).

Place Bet: With a place bet you are betting that your selection will finish in a place. The amount of places will differ depending on the event and the number of runners/participants. In the majority of cases a place is 1st, 2nd or 3rd. However, in events with a larger number of runners such as a horserace (handicap with 13 or more runners) or a gold tournament (which can have 100+ participants) place are paid out on the 4th place and in some cases up to 5th place under special bets offered by some bookmakers. Likewise, horse races with 5-7 runners only pay places to the 1st and 2nd placed horses. Also check the conditions of places before placing the bet – they should be clearly displayed.

Each-way Bet: An each-way bet is when you are betting on your selection to win a race but also to be placed in a race. You are in affect betting half your money that the selection will win and half your money that it will be placed. For example, you bet €10 each/way on a horse that is priced at 8/1 in a race with 8 runners. If the horse wins, you will receive €90 (win at 8/1) + €30 (place at ¼ the odds) or €120 in total. If the horse came 2nd or 3rd you would receive €30.

Laying: Laying a selection is a bet that it will not win. It has grown in popularity over the last few years due to the growth of betting exchanges. If you lay a selction and it loses you win. In contrast, if you lay a selection and it wins, you lose. For example, a punter lays Horse A at 5/1 in the Derby. You will set a max loss, say €500, which means you will take bets up to €100, as if the horse wins you will have to payout €500.

A Double: A double is a multiple bet that links two separate events/selections. For it to win both selections must win. For example, you do a €10 double that includes Horse A to win the 2.10 at Aintree at 2/1 and Horse B to win the 3.50 at York at 1/1 (Evens). It Horse A wins you will have €30 going on to Horse B at 1/1. If Horse B wins you will get €60 in return. If only one selection wins the bet will be a loser.

A Treble: A treble is a multiple bet that links three separate events, and in order for it to win all three selections must win. In the example above we add a third selection, Horse C to win at 3/1 (along with Horse A at 2/1 and Horse B at 1/1) in a €10 treble, as opposed to a €10 double. If Horse C wins at 3/1, along with the two other selections this bet would pay €240. (€10*2/1*1/1*3/1=€240). Again, the bet only pays a return if all three selections win.

An accumulator: An accumulator bet is a multiple bet that requires multiple selections to win in order to pay out. It is widely used as a term for any multiple bet with more than three selections. Terms also used include fourfold, fivefold etc for accumulators with four or five selections included. With the multiplier effect of many winning selections bettors are attracted to accumulators as they often pay out large amounts, However, given the multiple events and outcomes the probability of success is reduced.

A Trixie: A trixie is a bet that includes three different selections for a total of four bets. These four bets are three doubles and one treble. Lets assume the trixie includes three horses: Horse A, Horse B and Horse C. The doubles in the bet would be Horse A & Horse B, Horse A & Horse C, Horse B & Horse C and the treble is all three horses together. A minimum of two of the selections needs to win for the bet to produce a return.

A Patent: A patent is like a trixie in that there is three selections. However, a patent includes seven bets as in addition to the doubles and treble it includes singles on the three selections. A minimum of one of the selections needs to win for the bet to produce a return. Continue reading Different Types of Bet
