How to Maximise Your Profit Betting on Football
No one like losing when betting on football matches,
especially if it is your own team that you have backed.
Below we take a look at how you can maximize your
profits and cut some of the risks involved when placing
wagers on footy games.
Top Three Ways To Maximize Your Football Betting
1. Use the latest football statistics along
with the teams you're betting on.
2. Be an expert at least on one of the league's
you're betting on.
3. Keep a monthly log of the bets you make.
The Team's Home & Away Form
One of the most important factors to take into consideration
is a team's home and away form. In general around
half of all matched played in the Premier League result
in a win for the home team and a quarter in draws.
The remaining result is away winning and this statistic
is true for most leagues across the world. Backing
the home team to win or draw gives you a great advantage
Do not just use one season's statistics when assessing
a team's form for home and away matches. It is best
to use the data from at least two seasons so it gives
you a more accurate prediction. Cross reference the
home and away teams form to help you calculate if
the bet is worthwhile placing.
The Team's Recent Form
A popular football betting system is to use a team's
recent form guide to make an assessment of the result.
When a team is winning it builds up the players confidence
and there is no better example than this than Leicester
City last season. If a team is on a bad run and has
not won away from home or like West Ham this season
have struggled to adapt to their new stadium, it is
worth backing the away side. Player confidence is
a huge part of teams winning and if they are on a
bad run, they will be lacking in this.
One factor to consider if you decide to use this
football betting system is to stay away from mid-table
teams. They are inconsistent and are able to pull
off shock results which make them very hard to predict.
Key Player Injuries & Suspensions
A large number of key players are vital to their
team's success and if they are missing for the game
through either an injury or suspension it can greatly
damage their chances of winning. Things such as the
team's leading goal scorer, captain or leader of the
defense are things you should look out for when betting
on football games.
Teams Playing In European Competitions
One of the most common statistics to consider is
if the teams you are betting on has played in midweek
in the UEFA Europa League or have a big game coming
up in the Champions League. The Premier League teams
that take part in the UEFA Europa League have a dreadful
record of winning their following match in the Premiership.
Also if one of the big teams has a huge game in the
Champions League they may choose to rest key players
which will give the opposition a great chance of getting
a shock result.
Use Your Betting Log
By creating a betting log and analyzing it, you will
quickly find out where you are going wrong. Do you
place too many bets on longshots, do you back the
away team too often etc. Using this information you
can alter your system to maximize your profits betting
on football. It will also help you know if you are
winning or losing money which is the most important
Football Betting Tips
