By on October 27, 2021 - 67 views

Football is getting more popular with each year, and so does football betting. With many convenient and trusted online sportsbooks being available in the UK, betting on sports has become as simple as downloading an app on your phone. 

While it is impossible to predict every game, seeing as sports are full of surprises and unexpected twists, that doesn’t mean that there is nothing you can do to improve your success rate. In this article we will be discussing five amazing tips for football betting online. This can help improve your chances of winning and identify mistakes.

Place Better Bets

While there’s no such thing as a 100% winning rate, there are certain things you can do to improve your success rate. Understanding how betting odds work will help you place better bets and calculate your chances of winning. Also, having the knowledge of odds calculations could help you weigh your risk and probably lose less.  

Manage Your Money Correctly

Going hand-in hand with the previous tip, always remember that you are wagering real money. Make sound predictions and avoid going all-in on the underdog. While the prospect of winning big after a massive upset sounds fun, playing safe will ensure that you don’t lose too much money in the long run.

Research Before Betting

A lot of sports lovers believe they know enough already so they don’t bother to research the fixture before they play. Researching matches involves browsing their head-to-head (previous encounters), the team’s current form, and the squad lineup. Also, consider factors such as who’s playing home and away. Even the big teams lose sometimes, so it helps if you can identify an upset before it happens.

Explore Betting Options

All sports bookies have a vast variety of betting options for each match. A single match can have up to 50 options on some betting sites. It’s up to you to explore and pick the ones that are likely to yield results. There are options such as GG or BTS (Both teams will score in the match), and Double Chance (1x: home team to win or draw; 2x: away team to win or draw, and 12: any team to win). 

There are the goal market options as well (over/under 1.5, over/under 2.5 e.t.c). Over 1.5 simply means the total goals in the match will be more than 1, while under 1.5 means the goals will not surpass 1. So, whenever you go to online casinos that offer sportsbooks, always check out the betting options. They will, more often than not, go beyond the usual guessing of the winner. 

Remember To Have Fun

Some people think of betting as a source of income, but the main reason to bet is to increase the excitement and enjoyment you get out of following your favourite sports teams. Watching your team win is nice, but it’s even nicer if it means that your fiver converts into a crisp £20 note. That being said, follow responsible gambling principles to ensure it remains fun and does not cause frustration.
