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.

football betting

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.

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.


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.
