How to Win at Football Betting
Follow these 3 golden rules and your football betting will improve straight away.
The work involved is minimal as the bookmakers themselves will point you to the soundest bets,and the number of bets you make will be much reduced allowing you to increase your football wagers as you get more success.
There are 3 Golden Rules to follow if you want to win at football betting:
1. Only ever bet the home side
By restricting your football bets to the home side you are loading quite a few factors in your favour. The home side obviously has the supporters help which can be a great asset in making sure the players strive for success.
Referees,no doubt unconsciously,give more decisions to the home side than the opposition when the crowd are baying for free kicks and penalties every time a tackle is made on their team.
Add to this ground familiarity for the home side,and their opponents tendency to not compete when the going gets tough as the support for them is muted and their lack of effort overlooked - they can hide,whereas the home players will strive till the end before their own fans.
2. Only ever back the favourites
You need to win regularly as your football bets will be big - by that i mean to your normal bets,and what is big to one punter may be small to another - but no more of those small interest novelty soccer bets that will not get you into the big time when betting on football.
Why favourites ?
Well some of those big prices look attractive,but by and large they will not win often enough to keep you in the betting mood if you lose a consecutive number of bets - you must keep winning regularly with a view to increasing your stakes - your ambitions must be raised continually and you will only be able to do this if winning regularly.
The attractive prices are about evens to just better than 1/2.
Rarely take more than evens - the bookmaker's oddsmakers will do the donkey work for you and anything over about evens is risky,unless you are certain it is a good wager,but rarely take these odds against bets - this will leave you just a handful of matches to consider with the good favourites easy to find.
Rarely take shorter than 1/2 - anything above this and it will be hard to get back on track if backing a loser - you want to be in a position where 2 out of 3 bets leaves you in front and you can increase your bets,3 out of 3 and you are really motoring and can continue to increase your bets relentlessly and aggressively.
This is important - I am not saying you bet every home side between 1/2 and evens - some of those bets will be excellent value,and some will be shockers to bet - can't help you there - decide which is which for yourself!
3. Only Bet in Top Flight League Matches
Never bet in cup,friendies or international matches - cup matches are often a game between the reserves or squad players who do not normally play.
International games are impossible to predict particularly when the group stages are already decided and the football matches are meaningless and often used for trying out new tactics and the result less crucial.
You must restrict your football bets to the domestic football leagues,wherever you bet or are located.
Also only bet in top flight football - in the UK that would restrict your bets to The Premiership and Championship leagues.
Corruption is rare in football,but if you only bet on top games this aspect will be removed altogether.
To sum up,take the best odds available and stick to these golden rules - home side only - back only the favourites to win - top league games only - and you should certainly cut any losses you are making now,and greatly enhance any winnings you are currently making in football betting.
Bet less but bigger,increasing stakes relentlessly as your profits increase is the aim of this strategy.
