Football Bet Strategy for Beginners


In the world of football betting, there is a win-win strategy – sure bets. Betting on all outcomes of a single event using different bookmakers.


Due to the difference in odds and a competent division of wagers, you can use this strategy for more chances of winning. To compare the coefficients, special programs like VOdds API can be used since it will be impossible to monitor everything manually.


Betting on any football match using these strategies has minimal risk including betting on a draw. A few things to keep in mind: (1) choose the league with the most draws in the season; (2) choose opponents of equal strength/standings; (3) analyze each team’s performance – if the teams score little in the season, then there is a high probability of a draw.


Generally, football betting strategies are quite simpler and more understandable to both newbie and professional bettors. It just takes a good balance of research and experience to find the perfect formula for your next sports betting activities especially on soccer.


How do I profit in NBA Betting? Tips for Beginners


Basketball betting on the other hand, has strategies that are more impulsive and risky. Since most basketball bets are done live.


This is due to the fact that basketball tournaments or games are more dynamic and easier to turn the fate of a match. There are no draws in basketball, they only finish the game when one team scores higher than the other, therefore, placing bets is simpler.


One of the most popular basketball betting strategies is total betting where you need to look at the quotes for total score before the match and compare them after the first half.


For example, the total over and under was considered 162, and the current one became 190. If there is an increase of more than 10 percent, then you need to set the total less.


You can also bet on a team to win the game in live betting. There are many different strategies that you can use while enjoying your games.


In general, both basketball and football, even though they are very different sports, evoke the same emotions among fans. With the right formulation of skills and strategies, partnered with experience and research, you can have a great opportunity to earn profits with sports betting using Asian bookmakers.
