Predictions, Football Trading and Profit – How to Bet and Win on Football

If you are looking for football predictions that are guaranteed to help you win, then prepare to be amazed. The football predictions I am about to give you are 100% accurate and guaranteed. So read on and discover exactly how to predict what will happen in any football match:

My First Prediction:

Okay, looking in to my crystal ball things are starting to become clearer, I can see people playing football, lots of matches, and can tell you categorically, that in over 90% of games a goal will be scored! Not what you were expecting? Try my second prediction below.

My Second Prediction:

This time I can see lots of matches on lots of different pitches, I can see goals being scored and can tell you exactly how many. There will be 2.7 goals scored per game! Still not convinced? Then read on to discover the significance of this information.

On the internet you will find hundreds of tipping websites giving predictions for football matches, but the fact is none of us can tell exactly what will happen in any given match. What we do know in advance however, is the statistical information surrounding the game, and this gives us the opportunity to approach our betting from a different and more profitable perspective.

This approach does not apply purely to football, in fact with any sport, if you take the time to analyse the statistics available and compare your findings with the odds available you will find that there are often areas where the odds on offer do not reflect the true chances of the event taking place. For example, not so long ago, a group of determined individuals were able to pin-point a market in golf where they were able to obtain odds of 100/1 on an event that was in fact a 50:50 chance!

Obviously, not everyone is going to find such large statistical discrepancies, but by knowing the statistics and facts you are in a much better position to balance your risk and reward. Betting in-play is a perfect opportunity to exploit this and during the course of a match they will always be several opportunities to maximise and minimise losses across several different markets to end up with a profitable outcome.

As an example, I have identified a specific tennis bet that statistically should be priced at around 20/1, but it is possible to lay on the exchanges at prices of 10 or better. If an opportunity like this is available in such a popular market, imagine what you may be able to discover in the hundreds of un-tapped markets covering the vast number of other sports and betting opportunities.

Knowing your markets, applying a strategic approach to the way in which you place your bets, and being selective will guarantee you long-term profits.

Football Betting Guide – Tips and Strategies to Bet Wisely on Football

Sports betting is one way to enjoy the game and make extra money as well. However, although this is a gamble and winning is only by chance, you it can however be a fun way to enjoy your favorite sports and make the battle more exciting. However, there are important tips that you need to learn before even putting your money into these games.

If you are a football fan and you want to make the game more fun and you would like to bet on the game, here is a simple football betting guide that will help you bet wisely. Although there are no clear cut way to win a bet on any sports game, a little research on how betting is done can help your chances of winning though.

Here is a simple football betting guide that you may find useful.

Do your research. Keep in mind that sports betting is a gamble but you can increase your chances of winning by doing a research on which type of bet can give you higher chances of winning. In most sports betting, you will have big winnings in bets that are difficult to win and lower winnings in bets that are easier to win. The choice depends on what you want though, but the risks are always there. Also do a research on the teams playing. Have a research on the teams, their chances of winning, their past performances, records of injuries and many other aspects of the game. Of course, choosing the best teams is also important in making the best wins in sports betting.

Only bet what you can afford to lose. In any betting or gambling game, it is important not to put all your money on it. Gambling is a game of chance and you can’t just risk all your money into something that the outcome is not sure of and risks are very high.

Choose what type of wager you want to put your money. Keep in mind that different bets have varying risks and chances of hitting the jackpot. A wise choice however, can help you manage your money as well as your betting.

Some of the types of bets that you can find in football are straight bets, parlays totals, half time wagers and many others. In straight bets, the team you wagered on must win the game for you to win as well. In the case of a tie, there will no winner and your money will be given back to you or deposited back into your account.

You can also bet on the combined score of both teams for the games you have wagered on. You can also bet on the halftime score, whether the first half or the second half. This is called halftime wagers. You can also choose to bet on 2 or more teams to win in the games at no particular order.

Keep in mind that there the higher the risks, the higher prize you can win, so you have to choose wisely whether you want to risk for the difficult to win or those that are easy to win but with smaller prizes.

Gambling With Your Coat On – Change the Way You Bet on Football

Ask a simple question – how do bookies make money – and you’ll likely get a fistful of answers, the most popular being a shake of the head or a shoulder shrug. Or both. The real answer is actually rather prosaic. They make money by setting odds on an event that ensure that they maintain a profit margin regardless of the outcome. This is known as ‘margin’. This is why odds on outcomes change as more money is wagered – the bookie is mathematically manipulating the odds to preserve their advantage. This is known as keeping the book balanced.

Clearly there are other factors involved, such as an intricate understanding of the sport/event in question, but essentially that’s it. It stands to reason, therefore, that the bookie is basically trying to make money whatever the outcome and isn’t relying on luck. Take it a step further and you’ll realise that it must follow that the bookies are counting on relatively small margins, often as little as 4% or 5% and that, therefore, bookies depend on large numbers to make their money.

And there you have it – small margins and large numbers. Or put another way, little and often. Simple isn’t it?

What’s this got to do with you? Well, if the bookmaker doesn’t believe in luck and is quite happy to make a relatively small profit on a wager – (in percentage terms, remember, little and often) – then why not you? If you want to consistently profit in gambling, then you need to start betting smarter. You need to retrain your mind. Start thinking like a bookmaker.

This is not as easy as you might think, however, for the simple reason that most people gamble with one aim in mind – to get in return significantly more than they stake. Understandable but, ultimately, flawed. Even experienced bettors make this mistake. And it’s a mistake that the bookmakers cherish and encourage. Consider this: why are bookies seemingly delighted to publicise the punter who wins £10,000 from his seven horse 50 pence accumulator? Why would they be so happy to lose so much money? For the simple reason that they know it happens so infrequently. They know for every 1 winning seven horse accumulator there will be tens of thousands of others that will lose, so it’s ultimately in their interests to encourage this kind of rainbow-chasing.

So that’s the message of this article. Start retraining yourself. When people bet on football over 99% of them will wager in multiples – accumulators to you and me. A 4 team accumulator, for example, or a correct score double, typically to return at least 5/1, usually much more. Test your resolve. Try betting in singles. Try increasing your stake by much smaller margins, 60% or 80% or 110% or the like. In those three examples a £10 stake will give you a profit of £6 or £8 or £11. Instead of saying that’s hardly worth it, start the retraining by saying a £6 or £8 or £11 profit is perfectly acceptable and you’re on your way. Next time I’ll tell you how you can take your new philosophy to the next logical level.

Oh, and good luck.
