How To Win Sports Bets: Three Top Tips

How To Win Sports Bets: Three Top Tips

26 Jul 2018, 10:25

It's impossible to absolutely guarantee success in sports betting but there are a few top tips that you can use to maximize your chances of winning big. 

There is no magic system or perfect foolproof strategy because of the uncertainty and unpredictability involved in sports betting, but you can make money if you employ a few simple strategies. We'll start with 3 of them here and then introduce a few more in the next post.

If you are a beginner or even an experienced betting enthusiast, stay disciplined, realistic and follow these tips. 

Be prepared to lose

Even the most successful sports betting fans have had losing spells and lose wagers on a regular basis. Even making purely 'safe' bets on favourites absolutely won't guarantee continued success because upsets happen and unpredictability is a theme in sport. Do your research and don't be deterred by a losing bet, because results don't always go according to plan. If you apply to reason and make bets for the right reasons, a few losses won't hurt because that something that needs to be accepted.

Do your research

Information and knowledge is power when it comes to sports betting. The more information you have at your fingertips, the likelier you are to make sensible assessments and predictions. Researching every single detail is not necessary, but any research is better than none.

Look at this 

Reading sports news and examining the recent form of major teams is a good place to start. A quick look at the injury news might convince you to change your mind on a bet. Is Chelsea as likely to win a watch if Eden Hazard is injured? Unlikely. Research will benefit you in the long run so it's worth investing some time in it now and you'll reap the rewards later.

Set limits for yourself

Limits are important in many areas of sports betting, but especially key when it comes to the number of bets that you place. It's possible that you might be an expert on many sports, but the chances are that you've got a sport which you favour or know the most about. As a result, it's likelier that you will win money on football if you're a football fanatic, as opposed to on basketball which you only watch from time to time. 

There's definitely an advantage to specializing in a small number of sports but if you'd like to venture into others, make sure that you research them.
