If there were a sure way to make a football betting profit, you can be sure that punters everywhere would
be lined up to buy the how-to manual. Unfortunately, while there are all kinds of gimmicks promising to deliver
winning football bets week after week, there are no guarantees. The best bet for making consistent
profits when you bet on football has been same since gambling was invented, and you don't have to buy a
guide to know the secret. It's research, plain and simple.
Profitable football betting has always been based on having the best information available and making the
most informed decision based on your assessment of risks and rewards. Seems a bit dry, doesn't it? Yet within
that simple premise lie all the thrills and variations of sports investing. The adventure comes in because in
most situations it will be impossible to have complete information and you will be making an educated guess and
using your gut instincts when you put your money down.
Football profits happen when your mind and your guts turn out better than the mind and guts of your
bookmaker. The biggest winning football bets come from long odds, where the bookie is heavily against
your position. Not only are these underdog victories wonderful to watch on the telly, but they are also mightily
satisfying when you know that the team has delivered some nice football profits to your pocket.
In addition to taking a chance and going long odds on the underdog, you can also turn betting profit
by betting over/under, the spread or for a tie. Betting on a tie is a unique variation with
football, and the unlikelihood of a tie means fat football profits if it does happen. Profitable football
betting can also be done on the spread, although you should keep in mind that the average goals
scored per game is 2.8 when making a spread bet.
Yet you can also make a betting profit on other features of the game. Punters have been known to their
weekend thrills from betting on the minute at which a goal will be scored and the number of penalty
minutes earned per team. Adventurous sorts also specialize in obscure football leagues. The Scandinavian leagues
are quite popular with the niche set, as are the Asian teams.
The catch, of course, is that no matter what they are telling you it will be much harder to know if you have
good information that when you bet with the English teams. Even the European majors are a twist, although they
represent a fairly well-known risk pool. Profitable football betting comes from well-researched potential
outcomes, so when you choose your challenges, assess your level of difficulty in getting good information,
weigh it against the pleasures of the sport and the risks and then place your bets.
