how to bet on football

Most bettors already know how to bet on football but unfortunately only a few can make constant profit.

The football betting industry is worth billions and it’s no wonder you want a piece of that, but unfortunately betting is not an exact science and the final outcome in a football game is influenced by many factors. Not even the weight carried by each factor can be precisely determined. But the good news is that most of the betting experts out-there agree on which those factors are: value, tactics, form, morale, team news, referee, weather and even fans.

The problem is those factors can change from one week to another and the question “how to bet on football and make constant profit” becomes tricky. A team’s good form can suddenly end without without any sign and this can also affect the morale levels. A coach can all of sudden change tactics or prefer a different set of players according to what he sees in training sessions. These situations can’t exactly be predicted by the average tipster but they can be foreseen by a betting expert who focuses only on a couple of tournaments and is familiar with the teams and their habits.

Getting to know all teams (tactics, players and so on and so forth) is not that easy and in-fact is extremely time consuming and that is why “the house always wins”….

While the average tipster prefers long shot betting accumulators the professional bettor will target long term profit with single selections based mostly on asian handicap. Accumulators can be played on pennies but at the end of the year the stakes pile up and the total sum can represent quite a significant loss. Why asian handicap? Because those are the best odds and the difference in comparison to European bookmakers can be as high as 10%. Those 10% are in-fact your money going in bookmakers’ pockets regardless if your bets win or lose.

So the actual first step in answering “how to bet on football for profit” is to make sure you always bet single asian handicaps at the best odds available on the market. For that you will need betting brokers that will serve you the best odds from multiple bookmakers.

After that it’s time to get familiar with the teams in a specific tournaments. You have to know the players, their motivation, the chemistry, the tactics, coach’s vision and so on. You have to browse numerous websites (team’s official websites, stats websites, fans forums, etc) for a single team if you want to do a professional job. The problem is people nowadays are working more hours than ever and don’t really have time for anything else, let alone browsing the internet for football related information. This is why most of the picks made by average tipsters are mediocre, poorly researched and even poorly written. Nowadays there is no time to waste so you’ll be better off taking advice from someone who does this full time, whose job is to research, analyze and pass on the information. If you have no time to waste you should subscribe to a professional sports betting advice service that can serve you daily betting previews.

There is however a small betting trick, a betting strategy if you like , that involves live betting (sometimes called inplay betting or betting in running) that everyone can put in practice with only little knowledge about the teams involved. Check the daily games and find one that is prone to going over 2.5 goals and also has good odds (usually games from France Ligue2, Italy Serie B or even from Bundesliga 2). If the score is still 0-0 after 15 or 20 minutes into the game you’ll have odds of around 2.00 for over 2 goals (the over 2 goals line means you will have your money back if just 2 goals are scored, extra safety). This inplay betting strategy can also be fun as you get to watch the game and feel the thrills. But the best part is yet to come. You can even schedule a bet to be placed when the odds reach a certain level . For example when the odds for over 2 goals reach 1.90 your bet can be placed automatically. This little betting trick can make a huge difference and can assure constant profit with only little research work. There are betting brokers providing this service called future fullfilment.

Let’s recap, this is how to bet on football and make profit :

    – be meticulous when doing your research and take all factors in consideration
    – bet singles on the asian handicap market
    – schedule you bets using the future fulfillment strategy mentioned above
    – just take the advice of a PRO if you don’t have time to invest in research
