If you are a long-time fan of football, it is very likely that you have built enough of a library of knowledge about the game to fill a book. Especially for those who watch several different leagues, having enough knowledge of how well different teams play can be a great boon if you want to try and make some money betting on games.
Unfortunately, the huge amount of variables to a game can make it impossible to predict the outcome of a game. Even the most obvious matchups can end up in a draw that no one expected, making it a risky endeavor for even the most dedicated of fans. Having a few tips under your belt can make the whole process a lot more painless and (hopefully) a lot more profitable!
These days the number one tip anyone should give you is to use mobile betting apps. Unlike the traditional brick-and-mortar stores of old, betting apps will frequently offer free bets and with the wide range of apps out there at your fingertips, there are hundreds of different markets to bet on and many aspects of matches you might not have known you could bet on.
A great way to make some reasonably reliable money is to bet on corners. This is fairly new to the football gambling scene and this shows in how much you can turn the bet your way. If you follow a few specific teams and pay close attention to their attacking tactics and keep track of how many corners they get per game, you can build up a decent profile of each team.
Using this data and checking which players are in play and what the weather is like on the day, you can make extremely well-educated guesses as to how many corners might be granted to your chosen team and put your bet up right before the games start.
Don’t Go Big
It might be tempting to drop a huge amount of your budget on one bet you are sure about, but statistically, it is much more likely that you win more money faster by placing many small bets. Sure, with a huge bet you might win a massive amount of money back, but every bet is risky, and the more money on the line, the riskier it is.
Follow the Matches
A more obvious tip is to make sure you are connected enough to follow many matches at once. The more simultaneous bets you have at once, the more chance you have of winning one, which is especially useful if teams you know a lot about are playing. Finding websites that feature free football widgets like standings of live matches can be one of the best steps you take, as they will allow you to track multiple games at once to find an opportunity to bet live.
Another fairly recent type of betting is where you bet on the outcome of a series of matches. These bets simply need you to bet on the outcome of a series of games (anywhere from around 5 games to entire seasons). The winnings on these will often stack multiplicatively, resulting in huge winnings from extremely small bets, and with enough knowledge about the teams in play, you can fairly often win big.
