When it comes to betting on any sport, we can all find ourselves lost on just how to improve our chances of winning. If you’re looking for how to win football bets, however, we have just the post for you. We’ve decided to look in depth at some of the best ways to increase your chances of winning football bets.
Find the best price for your selections
While finding the best price is easier online than when you’re on the high street, shopping around for the best deals and prices is vital when saving money and increasing your chances of winning. Finding the best betting odds will help you increase your bet winnings if you happen to win, and if you already find that you’re winning bets, it can be worth finding a better deal to win that bit extra if it’s available to you. Even if you’re breaking even on your bets, looking for that slight increase can turn a hobby into something profitable.
Bet with your head and not your heart
You might support your hometown’s football team with all your heart, but if they’re just not very good it can ultimately come down to supporting your team, or bringing in money. Similarly, everyone loves an underdog, but if their odds are that small and you can’t afford to lose the money you’re betting, then don’t. Trust your instincts to a point, but be sensible about the bets that you are making.
Specialise your betting
If you want to make betting on football a common hobby, try and specialise in something. By this we mean something like picking a league and sticking to it. The big European leagues are so close to call some years that it could be worth finding smaller, more obscure leagues if you truly want to win the bets you place. You’ll be in a prime position for winning if the teams are more unevenly matched than if you were, say, betting on Man U vs. Arsenal where both teams are fairly even in wins and skills.
Consider betting in different football markets
When it comes to football betting, most of us usually opt for the usual HOME – DRAW – AWAY style of betting, or may even venture out into over or under 2.5 goals and both teams to score. Betting in alternate markets, however, could prove more profitable. Bigger games will have 150+ markets for you to bet in, so take a look at what’s available to you per game and consider betting in one of them. After all, more obscure markets could very well have a better payout in the end.
Only gamble what you can afford to lose
This one is a point to consider no matter what gambles you’re taking. If you can’t afford to place a bet, don’t. While in the movies someone might bet a pound on the underdog horse at a race and win millions, that’s just not likely in real life. Being safe with the money that you have is going to be the most profitable option for you, as opposed to betting more than you can afford in the case you might lose it. Be sensible, and you never know what might happen.
