What is a strategy in sports betting

Betting strategy is the rules and principles that the bookmakers’ players have deduced from their personal experience.

Having chosen a strategy, you should follow its recommendations. Before playing for real money, it is better to check any strategy on a betting simulator. You can also enter each selected bet into the table without risking money.

Double chance betting strategy

A double chance bet is an ordinary for a match that wins with two out of three possible outcomes. There are three choices in the double chance market:

  • 1X — the victory of the first team or a draw.
  • X2 — the victory of the second team or a draw.
  • 12 – victory of the first or second team.
  • Bet on a double chance in three cases:

The safety net of the favorite.

If the coefficient is 1.95 for a clear victory of the favorite, then you can bet on 1X for about 1.30. If you doubt the success of the hosts, but you want to make a big bet, then you should take 1X.
Bet on the outsider. Choose matches where the favorite has problems with the squad, motivation and accumulated fatigue. A double chance of an outsider and a draw will be with a high coefficient.
A bet against a draw. Choose a bet of 12 if there are opponents who are satisfied only with winning.

Betting strategy on total goals in the first half

The coefficient for the same TB is always higher in the first half than in the second. Bet on a total of more than 1 with a coefficient of at least 1.50. Otherwise, play a total of more than 1.5 to increase the possible profit. Choose a match of teams that attack without intelligence. To increase the coefficient, wait 5-10 minutes and put it in live.

 Catch-up betting strategy

Catch-up is a betting strategy in which, after each loss, you increase the amount of the next bet or coefficient so that the first win brings profit. In the classic version of catch-up, known as martingale, you always bet at a coefficient of 2.00 and after losing, you double each subsequent bet.

For example, you choose a team in whose matches you have played a total of less than 2.5 several times in a row. Then you bet on a total of more than 2.5 goals in its meetings until you win, while increasing the bet amount after each failure. If you bet on a coefficient of 2.00 every time, just double the bet amount. If the odds are different, use this formula to determine the amount of the bet after each loss: (Loss + Target profit) / (Coefficient – 1).

 Betting strategy for late goals

You bet that at least one more goal will be scored in the match in the 75th minute. If the coefficient is much lower than 1.80, then wait for the 80th minute.

criteria to select matches:

There are many dangerous moments in the meeting.
Neither team has a clear advantage in the score.
A scoring player came on as a substitute.
In the match, the total expected by the bookmakers was not broken more.

Betting strategy for a draw

Bookmakers usually give odds of about 3.50 or higher for a draw in a football match. And it can be profitable to bet on a draw.

criteria to select matches:

There are a lot of draws in the tournament.
A draw in the match will suit both teams.
Rivals often play each other in a draw in recent years.
Teams often have draws in the last rounds.
For profit at a distance, it is enough to win every third bet.

 Oscar Grind’s Strategy

You plan in advance the percentage of profit that you want to get for the betting cycle. The first bid is equal to the desired percentage of profit. If successful, you start a new cycle.

You need to bet with a coefficient of 2.00. Keep the bet amount in case of failure and double it if you win, if the cycle is not closed yet.

For example, your bank is 5000 rubles. Youwant to get 10% of the profit, that is 500 rubles. You bet 500 rubles with a coefficient of 2.10. If you win, you will receive 1050 rubles: 500 X 2.10. Net profit will be 550 rubles. The cycle is closed.

If you lose on the first bet, you make a second one in the amount of 500 rubles with a coefficient of 2.05. If you fail again, you bet 500 rubles with a coefficient of 2.00. If you win, you bet 1000 rubles with a coefficient of 2.15. The entry will exceed the desired profit and close the cycle.

Total: you placed 4 bets in the amount of 2500 rubles, and the payouts amounted to 1000 rubles: 500 X 2.00 and 2150 rubles: 1000 X 2.15. Net profit is 650 rubles: 1000 + 2150 — 2500 .

Flat betting strategy

You bet a fixed amount on each bet regardless of the coefficient and the size of the pot.

For example, your bank is 5000 rubles, and you decided to bet 100 rubles for each choice. According to this strategy, you will not lose the pot instantly, but it will be difficult to earn.

According to the betting strategy, the flat is placed on the exact score in football, and on outcomes, and on yellow cards. This is a basic bank management strategy that is suitable for any type of bet.

Total betting strategy in football

Bet on a total of more than 2.5 goals by choosing a match according to the following criteria:

Two attacking teams meet.
The top scorers of the opponents are in good shape.
A draw does not suit either team.
The lawn and the weather do not interfere with attacking.
In the past matches of the opponents, TB 2.5 was often held.
Both teams play productive matches more often this season.

 Corner kick betting strategy

Bet on the victory of the favorite on the corners if the following conditions are met:

The favorite is playing on his own field.
The flanking players of the hosts more often make shots than shifts to the center.
The favorite has a tall forward in the attack.
The outsider defends the whole team.
If the coefficient for the victory of the hosts on the corners is low, then you can take a minus handicap. For example, (-2.5) or (-3).

 A win-win strategy of forks

A fork is an opportunity to bet on the opposite outcomes of one event and get a guaranteed profit.

For example, in one bookmaker, the total of goals is more than 2.5 for the Chelsea — Liverpool match with a coefficient of 2.05. And in another, TM 2.5 is available for 2.08. If you bet 1000 rubles on both outcomes, you will make a profit in any case.

Some believe that forks are the best betting strategy for football, because it is the only win-win. But there are also enough minuses:

You need large amounts of money in several bookmakers.
Your account may be blocked or the maximum bet may be limited.
There is no perfectly effective strategy for betting on football. Forks are dangerous because of the risk of blocking, and when using other schemes, there is a chance of losing. You can combine several schemes, but first test yourself and your strategy by playing with a virtual bank.
