Professional sports bettors have been developing various betting strategies for years, and in today’s text, we’ll present you with various systems and strategies, as well as some tips on how to become a successful bettor.
Define Your Goals
As in any business, it’s necessary to define your goals in betting and stick to them. If you don’t have your goals, you won’t be so successful and you’ll be playing more for fun.
If you want to be a successful sports bettor, it’s important that something motivates you so that you strive for profit. You can divide the main goals into less important and more important ones.
Choose What to Bet On
You can’t be a successful mechanic, marketing consultant, and driver at the same time. Also, you can’t be successful in betting in all sports.
Choose a sport that you’ll bet on, that you’ll follow, and that you’ll specialize in. In that way, you’ll be dedicated to that sport, you’ll know all the information and results from that sport and, most importantly – your chances of profit increase.
Play With a Pre-determined Bet
Every professional sports bettor determines in advance the money they plan to bet on. The golden rule of this game is – don’t play with money you aren’t ready to lose.
In addition to determining the so-called “bank” for a certain period, it’s very important to determine the “stakes” (bets) on your betting slips. This will prevent possible large losses on just one slip.
Through Odds to Successful Betting
Understanding odds can be key to successful betting. Decimal odds are generally the most popular form of betting odds. However, you need to choose the one(s) that make(s) the most sense to you. This is because betting odds are compiled by analysts and it’s certainly possible for an analyst to have a subjective opinion.
Remember that odds are a chance for some outcome, so you need to think carefully and you can make a big profit. Once you understand the concept, you’ll have no problem betting.
Probability and Odds
As we’ve seen, the odds express the probability or chance of an outcome. What’s of great help is that you understand them. Percentage odds are very easy to calculate. For example: if we divide 100% by 2.5, that will show us that the chances of a successful bet are 40%. This can be very helpful in sports betting. Of course, in betting odds, the betting analyst has a big share. You must keep in mind that the analyst can make a mistake, not taking into account all the parameters and that they have set an unrealistic odd.
Connect with other bettors. Every bettor can be helpful, but take their information with a grain of salt. It’s important to share information about the team, for example, which players are missing in a team, or to exchange slip suggestions. This way you can exchange more tips and insider info, and you can significantly increase your chances of making a profit. We recommend that you join a bettors group, which preferably has at least 1,000 participants who exchange opinions and types of many bookmakers on a daily basis.
Parameters for Successful Betting
Movement of Odds
It’s very important to follow a movement of the odds because some sports bookmakers can ‘toy’ with you. If you follow the bookmakers regularly, you’ll be aware of the reality of the odds you plan to play.
Home or Away Field
Take note, teams that play at home have a better chance of winning. Of course, it’s logical for the favorite to win, but also pay attention to where it’s played because there are differences in relation to home and away matches.
Don’t Play on the Teams You Support
It’s OK to like some teams, but have a realistic idea of whether that team has a chance to win or not. However, you should look at betting from a perspective of a real-life because you’re playing for profit. Betting on your favorite team isn’t a good way to bet.
Whether the team is tired or not plays an important role in who’ll be the winner in their match. Different sports are played in different schedules and frequencies of matches. Some are played much more often, even a few matches a week, and some very rarely. This can directly affect the odds.
