Before placing your first bet, you must read a lot. I am not talking only about some betting reviews that will recommend you some bookmakers; I am talking about finding strategies and sites that will give you hints and ideas about betting. You will surely find a large number of tipsters online, but the majority of them are only websites trying to promote a bookkeeper or another. Try the services of those sites in a smart way: free. For example, write down all their tips and see if they are right.
The simplest method is to choose a certain game. It won’t matter if it is soccer or basket; just make sure it is a controversial game with both sides having a chance to win. You can surely find this type of game in NBA or in the European soccer championships. Read the advices of several tipsters; see their reasons for choosing one side or another. A complete website of this kind has to consider several aspects, and you must do the same:
- The form of the teams. A Real Madrid on a disappointing 6th position might not be able to beat an Atletico Madrid that is fighting for the 1st place of the Primera Division in Spain. Just because they are the most famous team in the world doesn’t make them automatic winners
- They key players. A Barcelona FC without Messi might not be so strong against a collective solid team such as Athletic Bilbao. See if all the key stars are playing, and if you see that some of them are injured, you might have a good chance by betting against them.
- The statistics. If by some unknown reason, Seville FC can’t score more than two goals away for 10 rounds, it is likely that they won’t score more than two goals playing on Nou Camp on the 11th round
- The atmosphere. A team that that is almost relegated playing at home on an empty stadium will surely miss its fans, therefore a second division team that is just about to promote will surely have a bad game. Bet against them if you want to win.
