How to Maximise your Chances of Winning in Football Betting
Gamblers know that sports gambling with a special focus on football is an all-around activity. With the national leagues ending soon in most countries, the pre-season friendlies roar into life. When it’s a year like this one, the action continues in the World Cup while in other years, the UEFA Euro, the Copa America and the Africa Cup of Nations provide entertainment during the off-season. As such football betting online at sites such as NetBet Sport offers a route for gamblers to keep making some extra cash. However, not everyone is able to reap rewards in football betting, something largely caused by resistance to change. Sometimes risk pays in betting and these are some of the unconventional betting markets which possess the potential of rewarding gamblers handsomely.
Both Teams to Score (BTTS)
Predicting the outright winner in football may be a tough ask for some people. After all, we have seen some huge surprises in recent years, for instance, the Leicester City fairytale in the 2015/16 Premier League season. Such fairytales do happen time and again making it extremely possible to be confident when backing a favourite against an underdog. However, the BTTS market helps ease this fear on your part and also helps in ensuring that you retain a high probability of winning when placing your football. BTTS simply means you are backing both teams to score against each other. Whether one team scores late on to equalise or scores a consolation goal, all that matters is that both teams score. This market is particularly effective when the two teams meeting have shaky defences but are strong going forward.
Under/Over 2.5 Goals
Underdogs do spring surprises but that aside, there are games in which you know that there is going to be one clear winner. Instead of taking the safe but less lucrative 3-way betting market in which you only predict the likely winner, why not go a step forward and predict by how many goals the team is going to win by. Well, predicting the correct goal tally might be a tall order but if you highly favour team A to win over team B, it’s more profitable to state that it’s going to win by over 2.5 goals. The same is true if you think team B is going to win over team A in a tight match, it’s profitable to bet in the under 2.5 goals market. Learn to move away from the safe options i.e. 3-way betting and start to embrace the unconventional markets which are more lucrative.
To Score Anytime
Few gamblers have been able to move past betting on the outcome of a match and moving on to bet on things such as the likely goal scorers, total corner count after 90 minutes and total foul count after 90 minutes among others. However, it’s more profitable and actually easy to play these rather unconventional markets than the common ones. Take for example the ‘to score anytime’ market, all you need is to check who is in red hot goalscoring form and you are set to place your bet. With Mo Salah scoring in almost every game this season, it’s a risk worth taking betting on him to score in Liverpool’s next match.
