3 Powerful Tips You Must Know in Live Soccer Betting

When it comes to live soccer betting, there are certain foundational principles you have to acquire. In this entry, I will reveal to you 3 crucial soccer betting tips which will serve you well in the long run. Master the three principles, and you will increase your winning probability exponentially.

1. Know how to read the odds movement. Yes, the live odds movement is a great indicator of what the game’s outcome will be. Betting on soccer successfully requires both the sports and intuitive intelligence in understanding the odds. The majority of sports bettors have no clue what the odds display suggest, that’s why many people tend to lose in soccer betting – they’re handicapped with their insufficient knowledge on reading the odds.

Do note that I mentioned, the “live” odds movement, not pre-game given odds display. Having the trained eye to read the odds and understanding its language is winning half the battle in online soccer betting. If you can’t read the odds, you’re putting yourself at a vulnerable position at the merciless bookies.

2. No guts, no glory. You must have the audacity to bet large if you’d like to profit large. This seems like common sense – but usually, our emotions override our logic in online soccer betting. In fact, the moment where you start losing 2-3 games in a row, most soccer bettors undergo action-paralysis, meaning they fear betting altogether. They’ve lost a significant amount where the confidence inside them is crushed, and they let their account sit at a negative deficit.

3. Indestructible inner game. Your inner game is your control over your mind and emotions. Do not underestimate the importance of this soccer betting tip. You can possess an encyclopedic database of every soccer team’s history in the world, know every soccer player’s discernible traits; know how many cars the star-players have, but if you lack the foundation of a refined inner game for online soccer gambling, you will struggle to profit in the long run.

Betting on soccer successfully will come to those who are well prepared, have the guts, the intelligence in odds-reading, and a well-refined betting strategy. It’s more than just a matter of luck-dependency and knowing the team characteristics.

Soccer Betting – Maintaining System Discipline

Investing behavior is a popular topic among financial experts and economists trying to learn how and why investors and markets behave the way they do. Many of their discoveries and conclusions are just as applicable to punters wagering on betting exchanges as they are to brokers and traders dealing on the financial markets. The difference is that many brokers and traders are working with other people’s money, meaning that they have to exercise strict discipline as they are liable to their clients. Conversely, the independent punter is usually only using his own money and has few restrictions on what he can do with it.

System discipline refers to fighting the temptation chase every seemingly good bet in favor of sticking to a system that has been tested and shown to be successful. Most successful systems advise the bettor to have a fixed amount of cash with which to bet (commonly known as a “betting bank”); require that some manner of analysis or review accompany each bet; and dictate specific amounts, percentages, or odds. Most of these systems only work if the punter follows them perfectly, as adding variation changes the equations upon which the system is based. Nevertheless, since most effective systems only provide small but steady profits, many punters become overconfident, impatient, or greedy and begin discarding elements of their system. The result tends to be betting without a proven system and usually means the same hit and miss ratio as any random gambler.

The entire concept of system discipline is fundamentally counter intuitive to the average punter. After all, he wagering on the outcome of an event that has not been determined yet. Nevertheless, sport betting is not like casino gambling where the outcome is totally random; instead, research and experimentation can – and does – result in the development of systems that can radically improve the chance of winning. That being said, these systems are only as good as the punter is at employing them. Failing to be consistent, chasing after non-system bets that seem reasonable, and betting beyond one’s means all result in removing any advantage that a well thought out system may offer.

Once a betting system has been developed and proven, maintaining system discipline is the primary factor required to maintain steady winnings. Any and all variation from that system changes the total amount of money won or lost, rendering the results derived exclusively from the system moot. Random betting on sports is a fool’s game because with a little time and effort the punter can do much better. 

The professional punter knows and understands that system discipline is the key to success. Using his system consistently, patiently analyzing each bet before making, refusing to get too greedy and accepting many small payouts over a few large ones are all signs of a serious bettor that intends to make money. While anyone can get caught up in the excitement of wagering and clever bookmakers constantly make offers that seem very good, the professional with a proven system knows better.

Do You Know the Magic Number to Win at Sports Betting?

If you have been involved with sports betting for several years or just getting started I am sure you have seen companies advertising their pick services in your local newspaper, online or even on television. A lot of these ads are offering guaranteed games or claim winning rates of 80% and above. If you see these types of services, you should run in my personal opinion. I don’t care what they say, No One wins 80% – 90% of their games.

Does that mean that you can’t make money with sports betting? In short the answer is No, it is definitely possible to make substantial profits from sports betting, but you need to be realistic. If you have the proper discipline, manage your bankroll and following a winning sports betting system then creating a substantial passive income from betting on sports can be a reality. Knowing the magic # is the key.

So what is the magic #? The answer is 52.4%.If we use the most popular sports to bet on like NFL and NBA a normal bet would consist of betting against the spread with odds of 11/10 meaning that you would have to wager $110 to win back $100. What this means is that you would only have to win 52.4% of your bets to actually break even.Although hitting 80% plus winners is virtually impossible over the long haul, the good news is that anything above 52.4% will be profitable. Although winning 55% doesn’t sound that exciting, you can experience some really substantial returns each month.

Let’s use a 55% win rate and wagering on 2 games each day for this example. Here is what the results would look like after one month:

Win Rate 55%

# of Wagers 60 games (2 per day X 30 days)

# Wins 33

# Losses 27

Minus 10% Vig* 2.7

Total Wins: 3.3

*Vig is the % that the online sports books keep for accepting your wagers. Usually 10%

So what does this mean? Well with these numbers a $100 bettor would be up $330 profit after the month and a $1,000 bettor would be up $3,300. Not bad for a few minutes work each day, but let’s look at what this means in ROIpercentage (Return on Investment).

What I personally use and recommend is that if you are going to be flat betting or making the same size wager on each game then you should be using no more than 5% of your total bankroll. So if you have a total of $1,000 then you should be wager $50 per game. By sticking with the same numbers as the example above of +3.3 games this would actually be a gain of $165 and a return of 16.5% on your money in just 1 month. Compounding that over a full 12 months translates into over a 600 percent return on your money. I don’t know about you, but these are some incredible returns. Compare this to other investments like the stock market or the bank and you can clearly see that sports betting is a viable option even using a conservative example. Now imagine a 56% win rate or even 60 percentage.

Handicap Betting – Get the Most Out of Your Sports Bets by Using Handicaps

Handicap betting has earned tremendous fame recently among sports bettors worldwide. It allows punters people to bet on matches in which the odds are stacked in favor of one team or player essentially giving them an advantage. A similar process is used in golf, where amateur players are given a handicap of between one and thirty two, meaning they are admitted that number of additional shots when compared against a professional player, who would play from a handicap of zero. This signifies that in essence, the pro would begin with a score of negative sixteen if a player had a handicap of sixteen, for instance. This means that in a real golf game, where the players all play from zero, the wagerer can apply a handicap of their choice to players and their odds will change accordingly.

Among the sports where Handicap Betting is commonly used, the most popular tends to be football (soccer), though it is also commonlplace among all team sports generally. Typically, it is challenging to add handicaps to races unless they are scored according to the racer’s position rather than their overall finishing time.

For instance, in a Premiership football match between Newcastle and Chelsea the odds may be nearly even, perhaps slightly in favour of Newcastle due to a homefield advantage. However someone who wishes to bet on the game could allot Chelsea a handicap of two, which would in effect mean that for that punter, the match would begin with Newcastle already two goals behind even though the actual score would, of course. be nil – nil. Because of this, the odds would now be in Chelsea’s favour for that particular gambler. If Newcastle were to win by three clear goals they would win the match, though if they only won by one goal then Chelsea would win the match in terms of the handicap since they were given a two goal advantage. In turn, if Newcastle won by two goals then the match would be a draw. Some bookmakers would return the stake placed on games that end in a draw due to handicaps, but some establishments also offer “Handicap Draw” odds, which determine odds for games that finish as a draw.

This manner of wagering can make the betting experience more entertaining, as well as allow better odds on games in which the bettor is sure they can can correctly prediect the results. For instance in a match where a well-ranked team plays a team in a lower division, plainly there would not be a very good profit to be made by backing the clearly better team. Nonetheless if the smaller club were given a handicap, they could still bet on the better team winning but receive much better odds for it, though the higher-ranked team would then have to win by a higher margin for the bettor to still win their wager.
