With football betting sitting at the top list of bettors’ preferences when it comes to sports wagering, everyone is continuously searching for every possible tip or advice that will help them advance their game.
This is especially true for the newbies in the market, the novice or inexperienced punters, who are not only bombarded by “How Tos” and ‘recipes’ for successful football betting, but they are also overwhelmed by the often contradicting information and advice on how to make profits from betting.
Every bettor, whether a beginner or a more advanced punter, has to beat the house in order to make profits. The house, be it a traditional sportsbook or uudet vedonlyöntisivut, will offer specific betting markets with odds and prices that will be reflecting as accurately as possible their own estimations regarding a football match.
Now, punters want to bet smartly so that they “outperform” bookies and eventually win money. They are interested in two things: betting their money safely and also betting effectively. And to bet effectively they need to be able to make choices that are based on some kind of edge. In most cases this edge comes from thorough analysis, right info and effective interpretation of data.
Following, we give you the top three tips that will make you have more chances for beating the house.
1. Pay attention to the line-ups
The team composition is without a doubt one of the most important things to take into account when you want to make a prediction about the potential outcome of a football match. The starting line-up is critical because it reveals the intentions of the manager as well as the game that they are going to play.
You know where the strengths and the weaknesses are and where each team is expected to put on more focus and more attention. So, more or less you gain a perspective on how the match is going to play out.
If you examine the line-ups carefully you might be able to see whether defense or offense is the chosen style and this might give you a hint regarding your bet selections.
2. Examine the records of past meetings between the clubs
History can be repeating itself, plus it can strongly impact the way the future is built-up. That is why you should always examine how two clubs have confronted each other in previous matches.
With all the relevant statistics and records readily available to you via the internet, you have no excuse for neglecting such a valuable input to your betting game.
So, before you make any decision, just go and see how the two teams have behaved against each other in the past, which were their main weaknesses and strengths and what other factors may have influenced their confrontation (such as the clubs’ calendar, the footballers’ motivation, the team composition, the referees, players’ injuries and fatigue etc).
3. Check out latest club news
Last minute changes and latest news are always very useful to know. From a player’s injury which has occurred during training, for example, to a rumor about a forthcoming transfer which is likely to have influenced the team climate and the overall morale of the footballers, every bit of ‘news’ can be a game-changer for both the match itself and for your betting game.
Too often we see last minute changes being made by managers either because they decide to modify their game, or because they want to prevent some players from fatigue and injury or even because they have some players already being injured. Unless you follow closely the clubs for picking up on their latest news, you won’t be able to know such stuff and you won’t be able to incorporate such info in your decisions.
Moreover, there may be cases where an entire team feels enthused and more motivated or more confident because they have just learnt about a new sign up that is going to boost their performance. This may have a strong impact on their performance.
So, the key issue is to always make sure that you get the latest news on the opponents of the match you are interested in betting on.
Make sure that you follow these three tips. They will always have something to give you when it comes to making your choice in betting and they have always up to now, been proven to have a considerable impact on how matches play out.
