Filed in BETTING ADVICE by on 5 months ago 2 Comments

Football is certainly the world’s darling sports, and it’s therefore no surprise that it is also the most bet on sport- and that you too want to be part of the action. Your desire is completely justifiable; however, there are a few things that you may need in your arsenal before embarking on this wonderful hobby/career.

Just like learning any new thing, becoming a successful football better does not happen overnight. It requires time, patience, a bit of know-how and A LOT of discipline. Take a look at some things we feel that you should know to lessen the humps and bumps on your way to successful football betting:

Choose a suitable bookmaker.

The first thing you’ll need to consider is getting a right operator. Ensure that your bookmaker will;

Be open to letting you make significantly low deposits like five to ten pounds.

Have a minimum stake that’s nice yet low

Offers you a welcome bonus that you can use to practice until you’re comfortable enough to stake your money.

The other piece of advice is that you may need to look into their payment options since you are eventually going to open an account and transfer money into it. Most of these accept PayPal, Visa and MasterCard.

Learn the best way that you can bet on football.

First and foremost, familiarize yourself with the betting jargon, including terminologies and bet types. Though with time this will become second nature to you, the initial energy required to learn the betting options is tremendous, even discouraging for some. You’ll have to become intentional in learning them so that you can understand how to use them to your advantage. Know what Double Chance bet types, Scorecasts/Wincasts, etc mean and you’ll see your confidence levels greatly soar.

Secondly, you’ll need to keep tabs on all things football ranging from the latest news, trends and results. Your knowledge of terminologies and bet types can only take you so far if your knowledge of what’s going on is sketchy. You’ll need to follow and analyze the different leagues and competitions. Try starting with following the results. This gives you a snapshot of how the different teams are doing in the league and what to expect from each of them.

Thirdly, keep a keen eye on transfers, squad updates and off-the-field controversies- aka general news. The seemingly minute things off the pitch greatly impact performance through boosting or lowering the players’ moral. You may get minute by minute updates thanks to countless sources on the internet; however, Sky Sports and BBC are great reliable sources.


Bank Roll Management.

If you can’t ably manage your finances, betting may not be a good sport for you. For your sanity and for the sports reputation’s sake keep a tight reign over your finances. Have a budget, keeping in mind how much you have determined to place on each bet. This calls for discipline- one thing you’ll soon discover every successful better has mastered.
