Making The Most Of Free Bet Offers And Expert Football Knowledge
With so many online bookmakers around these days and sometimes hundreds of markets for even just one football match, bettors are spoilt for choice when it comes to parting ways with their hard-earned cash. The question is, where do you start? Bookmakers are clamouring for attention and there are so many options, not least in choosing which to use, it’s always worth shopping around for which of them has the best offers and promotions.
From big names such as Ladbrokes and bet365 to much smaller betting outlets, bookmakers offer a variety of deals to encourage clients to use their range of betting services, plus there’s an increasing number of comparison sites aimed at helping show all the latest offers in one place, all aimed at providing convenience for the bettor.
Some of the best comparison sites will provide far more than just a list of bookmakers and their latest free betting offers. Aimed at providing a wealth of help and advice for bettors, especially with upcoming Premier League and Champions League games, an increasing number of sites such as the aptly titled freebets.co.uk tipster recommendations also feature expert market analysis.
This means that said experts will not only provide you with the lowdown on the best value markets for an upcoming match, with reasoning and analysis to back their match preview suggestions, they’ll also highlight which bookmakers are offering the best value odds for the markets they recommend backing. It’s a feature that has gone down well with betting enthusiasts, and is typical of a market that is producing more added extras as a way to stand out in a crowded market.
Bookmakers use a vast array of technology and do a profound amount of number crunching, to come up with the odds they publish in each market. They are in the business of making a profit, after all, but there is always value to be found if you know what to look for. Our recent betting advice article on how to determine value will help.
Important for the most successful football bettors is sticking with the familiar, rather than delving into the unknown. There’s far more risk betting on the outcome of La Liga games in Spain, if you know next to nothing about the teams or competition, compared to focusing on Premier League games if you follow the competition in England carefully.
Given the best comparison sites also offer expert opinion and analysis, it’s worth checking through a few to get their take ahead of matches, plus a feel for what the general consensus of opinion or ‘Wisdom of the Crowd’ as it’s sometimes known. Armed with the expert views and your own personal knowledge, informed decisions on which teams to back are likely to produce more winning outcomes.
Knowledge is power, so keep informed with the latest news for a competition like the Premier League. Sometimes you might spot that a team is in the midst of an injury crisis, or key players are suspended. Many factors can influence the outcome of a football match, some of which aren’t reflected in the match odds. Such knowledge can provide an edge when determining the value of a bet, ensure you don’t take any grudges or myths into your bets, the importance of research shouldn’t be overlooked!
With that in mind, don’t forget to bookmark the most comprehensive statistics sites, such as the increasingly prevalent whoscored.com. These are an invaluable tool if you want to check specific team and player form, goals scored and conceded, even head to head records. All such detailed statistical information helps and especially if you’re looking at specific markets to bet on.
