Football betting is a pastime that many fans enjoy, and something that adds to the excitement of the game. This is nothing too serious, but despite that, people are always looking for ways to improve.
What many don’t realise is that there are a few simple tips and tricks you can implement into your betting, and these will instantly help you get better.
These could even be the difference between winning and losing over the course of a season, which adds even more importance to them.
However you look at your betting, there is nothing wrong with finding ways to improve and making small changes to try and improve your figures. Best of all, the three changes here do not require you to place any more bets than you currently are doing, and there is no need to up your stakes either.
Existing Customer Betting Offers
When you think about customer offers, you will instantly think about the big welcome offers that are available, usually involving free bets for new players. A free bet is a bet of a specified value that you can place without paying any of your own cash.
These free bets can be received in other ways. Look out for bookmakers who offer regular free bets to their existing players, these can really help you out.
For example, if you place four football bets per week at a stake of £5, and you receive one free £5 bet per week via an offer, use that and you cut back your spend by 25%.
The free bets can come by spending a specified amount per week, using an acca insurance offer or another way but they are certainly worth looking for as a way of cutting back your spend.
Shop Around for the Best Odds
In any other aspect of life, the vast majority of us will shop around to find the best deal we can. Many don’t put that into practice when they are placing their bets though.
If a better deal is available due to bigger odds with a bookmaker, you should be taking it. If you keep up to date with European football news and you bet on a few different leagues, then the same bookmaker will not have the best deal on them all.
After looking, the difference may only be £2 or £3 on your bet, which could feel like a waste of time to you. However, if this happens multiple times over the course of the year, these small amounts will all add up on your winning bets.
If you’ve lost £2 on every winning bet, and you end the season with a small loss on your overall profit, the £2 you missed out on each time is the difference between winning and losing.
Explore Slightly Easier Betting Markets
This isn’t something you can do with every betting market, but it is open to a lot of people.
If you are struggling for form, or you want to make things easier then look at lowering to a slightly easier betting market to grow your chances of winning.
With a lot of goals, the Premier League is one of the most popular leagues for the goals betting markets. Many usually bet on over 2.5, but there is the option to bet on over 1.5 goals at lower odds.
When you look at the current stats you will see that every club in the Premier League averages two goals or more in their games.
Your chances of winning when backing over 1.5 are therefore far greater than when betting over 2.5. If you need to change things up because of form so you can get a winner on the board, don’t be afraid to do it and switch betting markets.
