Editorial (August 8, 2018) – If you like to gamble on soccer then you will know just how tricky it can be to pick the overall result. It is precisely for this reason why so many prefer to bet on other markets rather than outright winners, or the outright result. Today then, with this in mind, we are going to talk to you about the prep work that you will need to do in order to pick the outcome of the match, and hopefully win yourself a little bit of money along the way. Beyond these tips, if you are betting on foreign leagues, you should always be checking online for information and tips on MLS and other leagues. Right, let’s get predicting.
Tips on Predicting the Outcome of a Soccer Match
You should always start with the current form of the two teams that are playing. Form plays a larger role in football than in many other sports, and if a team is on a home streak, they often continue in the same way. Check the last 5 results, no more, and see how each team has fared. Pay attention not only to whether they won, but how many they have scored, and how many they have conceded.
This will be tricky in the first few months of the season, but once we get to November you should be paying close attention to where each team is in the league, to give you an idea of how likely a victory is.
Home and Away
When checking form, be sure that you are checking to see how each team plays home and away. To give you an indication of why this is important you only need to look at Arsenal from last year. Arsenal were sweeping sides away at the Emirates, but on the road, they registered just one win in 2018, against some of the poorest sides in the division. Playing away from home can have a huge impact on how well you play, so pay particularly close attention to this stat.
History has a very strange way of repeating itself in football, with very little evidence or reasons why. This is why you need to look at the previous results of the two teams who are playing and assess which way most games go. Even some of the big boys will regularly draw against lower opposition, and this is something that you need to keep in mind before making your selections.
The weather plays a key role in football games, and you will often find that a wet and rainy day, will play more into the hands of the more sought and tumble teams, as opposed to those who play beautiful football. Make sure that you have checked out the weather forecast and considered this in your decision making for the overall result.
Follow these tips and you could be on your way to make a lot of money.
