Gambling is, by definition, a high-risk activity to pass the time or even attempt to gain money whether you are betting on sports or playing on an online casino. When done correctly, though, it can be a pleasant and thrilling supplement to watching sports.
But how can you get the most out of your wager? What’s the greatest approach to avoid the bookmakers’ gimmicks that aim to get you into their establishment?
It’s all about getting the most bang for your buck. Follow these recommendations from an ex-betting shop employee to see whether you can get the most out of your gambling experience, whether it’s the correct pricing, the proper markets, or even the optimum time to place your wager.
Know the Sport Very Well
Knowing the sport that you are betting on is very important. It actually might be the most important thing before you bet on sports. You need to know how the sport you are betting on works and you’ll also need to understand the small things.
Were they fortunate or were they skilled at preserving possession? Which tennis player is feuding with his or her coach? That golfer may have won two majors this year, but how much course experience does he have?
These are the types of facts that can help you make smarter betting decisions and better prepare you to recognize good-value markets.
If he scores inside 25 minutes, he will quadruple the odds, and you’ll probably discover that most other bookmakers have their own version to attempt to entice you through their doors instead of someone else’s. Based on your study, you should be able to determine which of these offers is best for you in each particular match. Be adaptable and willing to put in the effort.
The Fewer Options Available the Better
Even though it seems to be basic sense, this is something that many gamblers overlook. The fewer options you put in your wager, the better your chances of winning. If you do your homework, you should feel comfortable betting $5 or $10 on a single option. However, if you truly want a bigger reward, trebles are typically a good bet.
Don’t Get Anxious About Your Picks
If you’re anxious for a long-shot wager on a Saturday afternoon, don’t fill your accumulator with odds-on picks. For almost a little more money, you’re lowering your chances of winning.
In tennis, this is really simple to do. It’s the first week of a Grand Slam, and you see that all of the top players have been paired with relative unknowns. It seems like a good idea to combine them in multiple to attempt and win some quick cash. This, however, would be a mistake.
Tennis is infamous for having poor match-betting values, so you could put the world’s best players in a ten-fold and still only get +300 returns. It might be more prudent to do some study and identify an up-and-coming talent with a favorable draw, then support them at a lower price.
Don’t Bet Based on Emotions
You may have a strong desire for your team to succeed. You want it so badly that you begin to believe it’s possible. You believe it so strongly that you put your money on it before you realize it. And bookmakers adore that because it means they’ll make money every week from all the home supporters rooting for their soon-to-be relegated club to defeat the league leaders.
Consider alternative markets if you must wager on these events. They’re unlikely to defeat the table toppers, but might they score a goal? It could be a better option to bet on the result and both teams to score.
Choose a Good Time to Place Your Bet
Because, unlike horse racing, sports bets do not have ‘best odds guaranteed,’ it’s impossible to identify the optimum time to make your wager, although it’s normally better to do it on the day.
However, most bookmakers may raise costs or provide special deals in advance of a major event. Some people will do this for the whole day of the event. Others may raise a price for a limited time at various spots, so you’ll only notice them if you spend the whole day in the store.
If the event is exceptionally popular, the bookmakers will almost definitely promote it with special deals aimed to get you to part with your money.
