Using the strategies mentioned here is a great way to start your sports betting career, but how do you cap games to bet?
Capping a game is of course a different procedure from sport to sport but some ground pillars are always the same:
Livebetting is a lot harder than prebetting since the value changes continiously, one ball in tennis or a 2 pointer in basketball can turn a good bet into a mediocre bet. When you´re starting your livebetting career make sure that you choose a market where you can determine if the odds are good or not. You need to know the players/teams inside out and even then you will likely need some good tools before placing the bet. Here are some of the basics to get you started:
Sports betting is a sport within the sports where skilled players have to possess knowledge about sports, psychology, tactics and always keep an eye open for good and valuable odds.
The Viking is always out there looking for golden odds so staying updated is crucial. If you think that you have what it takes to succeed, the first thing will be to choose a couple of bookmakers to get started, bookmakers which feels comfortable and trusted.
The most trusted bookmakers are the ones which are listed on the stockmarket because of the fact that the shareholders would drop out of the company if they misbehave. It is also important to check in which country they are licensed for example Malta and U.K are trusted places.
Make your deposit and get started but be aware of your bankroll which is the amount that you can afford to loose, a good advice from the viking himself is to not bet the whole bankroll immediatly be clever and with patience you will succeed in the long run.
A top advice is to start betting on banker odds, which is a bet based on high likelyhood of success and expectations of the player/team. They give less profit but a well choosen Banker odds usually always pay off.
Reading other peoples predictions could be a good start but your own gut feeling makes the final decision when placing the coupon, making sports betting an art where self-control, sense and timing are important.
Celebrate your winnings and never bet for "fun", treat sports betting as a serious business. Fun is winning and feeling the sense of success, the great feeling of being able to predict the future based on your knowledge and skills.
In sports betting there are several strategies that can be used with different amount of success. Here´s the vikings breakdown of the most common strategies and the pros/cons of said strategies.
Placing systematic bets is one of the most commonly used strategies, in short: the player uses a system where the bets must abide a couple of simple rules. One of the most common way of sports betting is using the 1.10-1.20 system which as you might´ve guessed relies heavily on low odds with high stakes. Most players using this strategy will go all in on 10-20 subsequent 1.10-1.20 games and then bank the profit and start over in new series of 1.10-1.20 bets. This does actually work if you know what you´re doing, our best tips when using this strategy is to look for livebets where one team scores really early which opens high under lines that are in the 1.10-1.20 range. NOTE: When doing this, be sure to research the bet extra carefully as you most likely have a large amount of money at stake, just because the odds is low doesnt mean that it´s 100% secure UNLESS you research very carefully and find the best 1.10-1.20 bets.
Now this is actually a strategy that the viking doesnt recommend, even if you know what you´re doing. We´ve come across players that only bet on basketball/soccer/hockey games where the handicap quickly is in a winning favor of one team, or where one team is already winning. Now what we mean here is that of course some of these bets might be good, but only playing in this manner will kill your bankroll in a matter of minutes, ending your sports betting untill you can put up a new bankroll. For example: Look for 3 soccer games where the underdog is up by 1 and place a experimental bet of 0.1 unit. You will in most cases loose. Again, dont do this.
Now this is a far more interesting strategy of sports betting which if done right can create quite a lot of profit, especially in some of the more obscure basketball leagues. What you do is that you rank the teams yourself, giving each team a certain score. Then you follow this score and bet on the games according to your rankings. Each point in the rankings equates to a certain score number (depending on the sport).
Researching a game is the best way to sucess in online sports betting, no question about it. If you combine your own research with that of someone else, then you can reach great sucess. It can help you from making the wrong decisions and it can inspire you to make some great plays. If you are leaning on a game but are uncertain if you want to place a bet on it then search for some finished predictions (Bettingviking is a good place to start for inspiration). Research injuries, news, rumors, h2h stats and goal stats. And then when you´ve done the research do some more. After that you should be able to find a comfortable pick for the game.
