The MoneyMan gives some insight into his strategic approach to making money betting on soccer.
The Euros have kicked off and for the next month soccer will be in full swing. The timing couldn’t be better for me, as I’ve seen some huge success recently in my soccer betting. But that has not always been the case…
Soccer, by nature of the result always being one of three possible outcomes, makes for an incredibly hard sport to bet well on consistently. The fact that a draw could throw a spanner into the works of your predicted win or loss is a factor that sees many a punter lose out.
Luckily, soccer also offers a huge variety of betting markets and two which I have really been enjoying, and finding a lot more success in than the usual win/lose/draw predictions we are always inclined as sports fans to throw down, is betting on corner handicaps and total corners, as well as card handicaps and total cards.
There are a lot of statistics available which speak to how many corners teams average per match, which means you can do the research and opt for an accumulated over/under bet on corners, or you can pit the two teams against one another and look at a +- handicap for one team’s corners.
The same logic applies to cards. Teams’ average cards, as well as the booking record of players within the team, supply great insight into how many potential bookings there will be in a match. The referee also plays a huge role, obviously, and it is important to do some research into how trigger-happy a ref has been in his history when giving out reds and yellows.
So there you have it folks, bet on bookings and bet on corners if you want to be more conservative and shake the extra variable that a draw brings!
