To help you with your punting this football season, I have put together an easy to follow guide featuring 6 simple steps to achieving BETTER football betting profits.
Each of the 6 steps is based on advice supplied by the football experts interviewed in our recently released ‘Essential Football Betting Compendium‘ – the same experts with proven track records beating the bookies. Suffice to say, they know what they are talking about!
It is by no means a definitive guide (you will need the Compendium for that!) but its full of salient and logical advice that will keep you on the profit straight and narrow this season.
TIP 1: SET UP YOUR BETTING BANK
“Allow yourself a disciplined betting bank, follow the staking advice, and keep faith through the good and the bad patches” – Phil Brown, Football Bets
It is absolutely vital to always make sure that you have set up a proper, standalone betting bank containing the funds you need for your betting. Do not mix this with the money you need to pay bills or for day to day living. The secret to successful betting is discipline, and doing this will set you on the right path from the moment you place your very first bet of the new season.
Not only that, but there will be periods of the season when you’ll hit a few losers. Perhaps more than a few at times. It’s vital you see those bad streaks out, so make sure you sort out that betting bank, and keep the faith in those you’ve chosen to follow. Remember, all our recommended tipsters have proven themselves over the long term and come with betting bank suggestions to help you absorb the bad runs when they come (and not go overboard during the good runs!)
TIP 2: VALUE, VALUE, VALUE
“There are always going to be certain types of teams in certain types of situations that are almost always going to be underbet by the masses and hence a value price. That is my general philosophy to betting in these leagues – I am the proverbial “suncream in winter” buyer!” – Matt Love, Football Elite
Winning bettors don’t look for winners. They look for value. It is value that provides your profit. Sure, backing Man United at home against the bottom team will give you a winner more likely than not, but do this every week at the wrong prices, and you’ll lose money.
This might mean you have to go against the crowd and place a bet no-one else seems to be – yet often that might just be what makes you successful.
TIP 3: STICK WITH THE PROVEN WINNERS
“If you’re following a tipster, stick with it for the full season. Trying to switch it all around due to temporary losing streaks won’t lead to better results.” – Mike, Football Value
There is such a temptation to ditch a tipster when they go through a losing streak. Don’t. Form is temporary and class permanent. And you need to remember this and not fall into this very common trap.
This is why the tipsters we recommend are proven, long-term winners and we don’t react to shorter periods of bad form. When a losing run hits, you will be comforted by the fact you can look at the service’s excellent results over many years betting. You will see they have experienced and worked their way through similar bad patches in the past and that they know what they are doing.
So when you’ve settled on a tipster, make sure you give him the time to make you money. Stick with him, and reap the rewards.
TIP 4: SPREAD THE RISK
“…diversification is key and will always remain key if trying to make a profit long-term at this game… Spread the risk across different leagues and different systems/tipsters” –Graeme Dand, The Football Analyst
A golden rule of betting is to never put all of your precious eggs into just the one basket. Put yourself into a situation where if a tipster specialising in one field is struggling, then a tipster specialising in another can balance things out.
Of course that is all very well, but surely finding one great tipster is difficult enough, never mind identifying a number of them!?!
Well, it’s not difficult if you know where to look. We currently have 15 football tipsters that we have proofed, analysed, reviewed and monitored. These include ratings-based tipsters, and tipsters who specialise in one of Italian, Spanish, South American, Scottish, and UK Non-League football, amongst others. So spread the risk and boost your profits.
TIP 5: ALWAYS GET THE BEST ODDS ON YOUR BETS
“..get the best possible price for your wager using [an] odds comparison service…” – Ross Casey, Easyodds
Don’t take odds of 11/10 against your fancy when you can get 5/4. It may be small margins, but over a season, these differences will add up and make a big difference to your bottom line.
There are many odds comparison sites out there, and it is a simple task to open accounts with different bookmakers and betting exchanges. Don’t be loyal to a bookie just because its easy – it might cost you! Shop around and play the market for the best odds.
Plus, as an SBC member, we have special offers with the likes of Smarkets (unique low 1% commission deal) and several reviews of various Bet Brokers who can help you get better odds. Every little helps…
