✅ Bet with the head not with the heart
We all remember that announcement of the Quiniela where a player celebrated the defeat of his team because he had hit the Plenary at 15. It is not necessary to reach that end, but we will bet with the head and not with the heart, although sometimes it is More tempting We have thousands of sports and markets where we can bet, so we don’t have to limit ourselves to our team, no matter how much we know the most. When we bet on our team we usually do it for the result that we would like to see, not for the most likely one, so look for other markets and enjoy your team to the fullest without negatively affecting your pocket.
✅ Beware of combined bets
A combined bet is still the sum of bets, and the more variables you add to the betting slip, the more options you have to lose. Of course, as our combination grows in variables, so does the quota and there are not a few betting houses that offer us a bonus from a certain number of selections. The final odds are very attractive, and you can get out once or twice, but in the medium and long term the combined bets will cause you losses.The easiest thing is that you end up losing, even combining selections with very low fees, of those that have almost no value. This also applies to system bets.
✅ Avoid live betting
We have already talked about the importance of betting with the head, of analyzing the bets, the evolution of the markets, etc., so … can we bet live? All bookies do not offer the option of live betting, but you have to be very careful because when we bet live we get carried away by our impulses and emotions, and that is something that leads us nowhere. You will hardly be able to win by betting live, so if you really want to win money with your bets, limit yourself to premature bets.
✅ Tipsters: not everything goes
Everyone is able to give a forecast for a sporting event. Even you can do it, but that does not guarantee that you will succeed. The tipsters play a very important role in the previous analysis of many bettors since they provide essential data and statistics for the success of the bet. But the network is also full of tipsters of doubtful reputation, many of them paid, so before you risk your money following the advice of these forecasters you should know the tipster, the percentage of success that you usually have, in which markets it is specialized, yield, etc. And you also analyze the bet and decide if it convinces you, do not follow it just because it is advised by a tipster.
✅ Betting trading
We have said that when we bet we play against the bookmaker, which has everything to win. But every rule has its exception, and in this case they are the so-called cross bets, in which instead of playing against the house we play against other bettors. So, you become the bookie. Winning with cross bets tends to be easier than with traditional bets, but the big problem with this model is the market shortage in Spain: only Betfair allows us to make cross bets through its Betfair Exchange.
