Who doesn’t want to be able to bet on football and win?
There are very few people who consistently profit from sports betting, so do these few people have some secret to betting on football, or are they just plain lucky.
Truth is when most people win it is luck, but professional sports gamblers who see consistent profits each week have created a career in sports betting. So what secrets do they have that you don’t, do they have inside knowledge or do they follow some secret formula ?
Most professional sports betters do follow the games quite closely and they do make decisions based on injuries and form. However to see consistent profits they do need to increase the odds of winning in their favour, by following a sound money management formula.
You see bookies take into account injuries, home ground advantage and all the rest when they create the odds, they are always in control. So while you cannot increase your odds or chances of winning on any one game, you can increase your odds over a series of bets or wagers.
With 2 teams of equal value you have a 50% chance of winning, but with the next game your chances increase, just like flipping a coin 5 times is bound to land on heads eventually.
By the time you do win however, you properly already spent twice as much to get the win due to the odds. This is why you need to progressively increase your wager so that your win will cover the loses already sustained.
The problem you will face with this is that, just because you should start winning doesn’t mean you will, and with your bets increasing your equity can run out very soon.
That is why you need to be betting on something that is likely to win, and have some kind of cut off point so your wager never goes to high.
There are many various systems you can try, but the most important thing to remember is keep your cool and bet small, don’t think of your wager as your wage or something you need, think of it as a small bit of fun, and if you find a system that works, consider it a bonus. Once you start getting emotionally involved with your bets, it will only lead to rocky road to disaster.
There are systems out there that can help you, but the best free secret to betting on football I can give you, is not to get emotionally involved.
