Do you know that just by saying something like Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal will win their matches can win you like times 5 of your investment? You don’t even have to predict the scoreline. Just say they will either win, draw or lose. Are you excited? Great. I’m going to show you how to do it. Let’s go. Football Betting Explained Football betting is all about placing money against bookmakers. It is different from betting against other people the way most people do. Bookmakers are betting companies that provide the platform for betting activities. They also provide the prices and expected winnings on each football match and other sports. All you need to do is to determine the outcome of a particular match or a series of matches. You don’t need to predict the exact scoreline. Of course there are bets where you can predict the exact scoreline and we will talk about that later. The price per match will be determined by how hard it is. The easier the match, the lesser the potential returns. The harder the match, the higher the potential outcome. Assuming Manchester United wants to play Wigan Athletic at Old Trafford, we all know there is a very high likelihood that Manchester United would win. Isn’t it?
2 The money you are expected
to win if you say Manchester United will beat Wigan will be very small. In fact, very very small. On the other hand, if you say Wigan will beat Manchester United, then the expected monetary returns would be high. It will be high as well if you say it will end in a draw. Are you enjoying it? Each football match has its own price. It’s called odds. Have you ever heard statements like Bookmakers have said Chelsea to win the league at 6/4? That 6/4 is the money tag on Chelsea to win the title. Don’t worry. I will explain more. Using the Manchester United and Wigan example I gave above, a bookmaker can say his price/odds for the match is 1.2. This means that whatever you bet with will be multiplied by 1.2. Is it making sense now? Predict that Wigan will beat Manchester United, the odds could be That means that whatever you bet with will be multiplied by Let’s still use the Manchester United and Wigan example. So if you want to bet on it, what would you do? Manchester United to win at 1.2? If you put N1,000 on that, you will get just N1,200 in return. That is just N200 gain. Or will you back Wigan to win at 14.2? You only need to put in N1,000 to win N14,200. But will Wigan beat Manchester United? That is where your football mind and knowledge is needed. If 1.2 sounds small to you, there is something you can do to increase your potential returns. It’s called accumulators. Let me explain what that is. Let us assume that this weekend, these are the matches that will be played. Man Utd V Wigan Chelsea V West Brom Arsenal V Sunderland If the odds for Man Utd to win is 1.2 and Chelsea to win is also 1.2 and Arsenal to win is 1.4. What you can do is to combine these matches and
3 say that Man Utd, Chelsea and Arsenal will win so your returns will be 1.2 multiplied by 1.2 multiplied by times 1.2 times 1.4 = So if you put N1,000 your returns will be 1,000 times which gives us N2,016. That has increased your returns. The only problem is that with accumulators, once one of your picks go wrong, everything goes wrong. At least the bookmakers (betting companies) make some money as well. Let’s Talk About The Bookmakers Bookmakers are the ones that determine the prices per match. They are the ones that will pay you when you win and they will keep your money when you lose! (Lol). There are many bookmakers out there that you can use. It’s your choice to decide on the one you want. There isn’t anyone that you can really say it’s the best. They all have their advantages and disadvantages. Let me list some of the best for you. The list is not exhaustive I must confess but these ones are very good. Coral William Hill BetFair Bet365 Ladbrokes SkyBet BetDirect Stan James Paddy Power The biggest problem we face in Nigeria is that most bookmakers don’t accept us. Even the ones that accept us, you have to go through the rigours of bank transfers to fund your account with money.
4 When you win, they will have to transfer to your bank account or Debit Card. All these take time and it kills the fun of this game.
