Football Betting Tactics
When you're new to football betting and wagering, or even if you have some experience, you will need to equip yourself with everything available at your disposal. Here's a list of 5 football betting tactics that every newbie should know.
Top 5 Football Betting Tactics For Newbies
1. Home advantage
The home advantage is a genuine phenomenon. One study that tabulated the results of 25 seasons of English Premier League matches between 1992 and 2017 found that the clubs won 46.2% of all home games, while away games won only 26.3% of the time. Taking last season’s league into consideration, Man City, winners of the league, won 18 out of 19 home games, and Liverpool, runners up, lost none – winning 17 and drawing two. In any match, the home team has a much better chance of winning, mostly because they are better rested due to less travel, and all the support from the home crowd wouldn’t hurt either.
2. Arbitrage Betting
Arbitrage betting is a popular tactic, especially among professional punters who make a living off betting. Mainly, arbing involves taking advantage of the variations of odds provided by different bookies. It encompasses placing bets on all possible outcomes in such a way that whatever occurs, you will make a profit. At the least, you will be able to reduce the amount of money you lose in the worst-case scenario.
Hedging your bets is similar to arbitrage betting, but instead of placing bets with multiple bookies, you do it all in one place, with one sportsbook. Like arbing, this is a low-risk medium profit strategy. But with enough practice, you will be able to make some huge profits. And you need to have a better understanding of the betting market before you can start hedging your bets.
4. Progressive betting
Progressive betting is a tactic for those of us who are willing to put all our eggs in one basket. There are several types of progressive betting, and the one we would recommend is positive progressive betting. It’s an incredibly simple strategy. Every time you win, you increase your stake. With the parole system, for instance, you start with a basic sum of money, say $10, for example. If you win, you stake $20 next time, and then you stake $30 if you get lucky again. With this particular progressive system, you need to set yourself a limit. In this situation, let's say its $60. Once you get to your upper limit, you go back to staking your lower limit, $10. If at any time you lose, you go back to your original stake.
5. Value betting
Value betting is probably the most critical tactic that a newbie should master. It involves looking for bets that are priced lower than what they’re worth, as the odds reflect an outcome that isn’t as likely to occur as the claim. Once you learn how to find value, the profits will come rolling in.
