Soccer Betting – Use a Disciplined Approach: Bet with Your Head and
Not with Your Heart
by Jason Green of Predictem.com
Having the ability to earn some money when betting on soccer can be an activity that is rewarding, however there are a lot of pitfalls that you will have to deal with when you first learn to bet on the beautiful game. Maybe the most common negative aspect that bettors deal with is a significant amount of losing wagers. However, if you follow some simple rules you can increase the chances winning soccer bets.
To bet on professional soccer you have to have a clinical approach to be able to successfully predict what the outcome of a soccer match will be. Whether it is leaning towards teams that you root for in a national aspect or supporting your local club team it can lead to a bettor not having discipline and not following legit methods for successful soccer betting.
One of the basic rules in being successful in betting on soccer is that you have to bet with your head and not with your heart. Having a team that you love may not give you clear judgment and it can then lead to picking a non-value bet. Your ability to be able to choose the outcome of a match will basically be the deciding factor if your activities when betting are ones that are profitable or lose you money. In my case I would love to bet on Inter Milan every time, as they are my favorite team. However, since they are one of the best teams in the world they rarely get good odds, which means, most of the time, they are not value bets.
If your wager loses and you end up second-guessing yourself and the selection you made it is generally a good indication that you are not using a legit process in terms of handicapping your selection. You only have one shot to make a winning bet and because of this, analysis of a match should not be taken lightly. You have to look closely at match data provided, in much detail, at the stats of both teams in order to get a forecast of the match that is accurate.
Obviously, not everyone likes to take a lot of time to handicap a football match, but over the long term it will pay off with an increased profit and less losing wagers.(5-10% on average!) If you do not have the time in order to handicap a soccer match or do not have the dedication there are other options available to you.
You can get advice for soccer betting by using professional soccer tipster services that will take care of analyzing soccer matches for you. These types of services offer various options when you a member such as weekly, monthly or yearly services. Typically, the tipster services are not free of charge and they will charge you a few bucks for becoming a member. It will cost a little money, but it is better then making blind non-informed bets.
Again you have to bet with your head, being smart, and not your heart being sentimental. This will pay off for you in the long run and decrease your chances of losing.
