You would think that the biggest enemies of the betting punters are the bookmakers or the unpredictability of football matches. Actually they are not. The biggest enemy is hiding somewhere else. If you think more deeply you will find out that the advantage of betting houses is not more than 5%. However, there are many ways this advantage to be compensated. The unpredictability of football matches and other sporting events is not such an overwhelming thing too. You need a careful analysis and monitoring. If you do that it is possible to achieve sufficiently strong success rate, which will beat the five percent advantage of bookmakers.
Actually, the biggest enemy of every punter is the fatigue. Mental and physical fatigue because of all this thinking and pushing to find the best matches to bet on. Constant fear that this game may not be accurate is also strong enough to cause dangerous fatigue. The fear that you will lose money is another thing to consider. All this leads to the accumulation of mental fatigue, which affects directly the efficiency of the punters.
Maybe you have noticed that when you start betting in the first two or even three weeks almost everybody has success. You know what people call it – beginner’s luck. Actually it’s not about luck. It’s about strong concentration and huge interest in the game.
Unfortunately, we cannot keep ourselves constantly focused. At one point, we will inevitably lose concentration and this will be disastrous for our bets. The time given to find exact matches to bet is decreasing and this decreases our results too.
To make things worse, by lowering the success rate naturally we lower our confidence in our own abilities to find the best matches and thus our results worsen too.
This is precisely the reason for the failure of most bettors. Unfortunately there is no remedy against this phenomenon in betting. It is not very clear whether there will ever be a solution.
Naturally, the simplest solution is to monitor the results. Then when they fall below a certain percentage of success to take a pause. However, this requires extreme discipline that is not within the reach of everyone. Another option is not to bet too often, but if you do that you surely will have a fall in the profit because of small number of bets you have made, despite the higher success rate.
Whether you will be able to find a solution to the problem of fatigue, the least you can do is keep it in mind when making your predictions. This will surely help you in betting and limit your losses.
This is an essential question when we talk about betting because it can give us the so needed advantage to beat the bookies.
Every bookmaker has a small advantage compared to every punter and this advantage is called margin. A margin is the difference between the correct odds and the real odds given by the bookie. If you have a match with two possible outcomes every of which with 50% probability to happen the correct odds must be 2, right? However, the bookie is giving just 1.91. The difference is the called margin and it is the advantage that the bookie has compared to the punter.
So, if you chose a bookmaker who uses a smaller margin you will have more chance to win. It is simple. If you have 5 bookmakers where you bet you will have even bigger chances to win because the odds are not the same for the different bookmakers. You will take the best odds and you will minimize the margin which will give you more chances to win. This is a must in betting.
Another important thing to consider except the margin when you are looking for betting houses is the bonuses you are going to get when you register. If you make a proper research you will find that most of the betting houses offer great starting bonuses. Some of them offer even a free bet option. This will help you start with your betting without risking your money. At least it will help you to bet more than you can afford in the beginning. The part with starting bonuses is important because if you make registration on five different bookmakers and take 50 pounds free money from every of them this will give you 250 pounds cash and this is a great option.
There is huge difference between fixed odds bookies and spread betting house. In the video below you will find some advices about these kind of houses
The final advice which I can give you when we talk about betting houses is – choose as big houses as you can. These bookmakers hold on to their names and will do whatever is necessary to keep their names clean. I am sure you will have no problems with them and if you have some they will be solved smoothly.
Italy and Spain will decide which football team is the best in Europe in a clash which is a must see match. The final of the European championship is tonight at 20.45 and I will bet for Italy on this one. Here is why. I know Spain is the favorite here, but I believe Balotelli, Pirlo and co may surprise the Red armada.
Both teams already played in the group stage of the championship and the match ended with a draw 1:1. Italy’s defense made everything perfect in this match and held the Spanish midfielders so nothing threatened Buffon. The goal for Spain was made with a 20 meters shot which could be described as luck.
What will happen tonight? Well, I believe that Spain will play again with false nine with Fabregas in this role. Could it be an advantage for Spain? I don’t think so. Italy’s defense is more than capable to hold them with their perfect covering. The ball will be close to Italy’s net, but there will be no goal in it.
Italy’s defenders managed so far successfully to cover every empty space in front of Buffon and they do it perfectly. Without a heavy center forward for Spain like Torres, who to rip and attract defenders to him it will be very difficult for the Iberians to break the blue defense in this match.
The question seems to be – Is Italy able to score a goal or not? The problem is that Italy depends too much on Pirlo and if the Spaniards succeed to hold him harmless, the threat to their net will be really small. When we have such a situation, the quality of the attackers comes to the fore. Mario Balotelli and Antonio Cassano are not the people who use even the half chances, but Manchester City’s striker showed so far that this is his championship.
So after comparing the two defenses and the ability to score of Balotelli and Fabregas, I will go for an Italian victory in the match. Moreover, the coefficient for Italy as a final champion is more than good – 2.1, which makes me put my money on Italy as the new European champion.
