The pull of riskier football tips

March 4, 2019Football Standard

After exhausting all of the generic football tips that are supposedly meant to stand with a strong chance of coming into fruition, you could be tempted into betting on markets that come with more substantial odds. These are always different based on the specific football fixtures, betting markets, and overall chances of each outcome that you might consider placing a bet on, but something being given large odds isn’t a certain indication that it’s less likely to happen than something with short odds.

Minor alterations to the types of bets you’re making can force a distinct change in the odds of your bet. Even by swapping a Match Result market to a Handicap or opting for Full Time Result & Both Teams To Score rather than merely backing Both Teams To Score can enhance your footy tips, leading to a significantly more appetising set of odds in which to back it. There are lots of basic hints that can make a massive difference to your betting activity, and they’re worth taking into consideration if it could potentially lead to a larger selection of winnings if you land your bet successfully.

Enhancing the basic football betting markets –

Match Result:

As the most basic of football betting markets is based on the winner of each individual match, there couldn’t be much more popularity surrounding any chance to get a better price from simply choosing to get behind a team to win their next match. The most obvious way to do this would be by backing a handicap, where you’ll be betting on a team to win by more than a specific number of goals rather than just betting on a chosen result. People will often back a team to win both halves, which automatically indicates that the team you’re betting on are especially dominant and will be likely to win the match.

Both Teams To Score:

The most likely runner-up to the match result in terms of popularity is Both Teams To Score, where you’re able to make a prediction that stands a chance of landing without it affecting who wins the match. If you’re able to recognise one team as being likely to win, you can back Full Time Result & BTTS football tips instead, get behind an ambitious Both Teams To Score In Both Halves bet if you expect there to be a lot of goals in each half, or back Both Score No Draw, where both teams need to score and one of the two teams must win.

Over 2.5 Goals:

If you’d rather predict a large number of goals being scored, there are ways to increase the price you’re getting with your football tips. This is best utilised through Full Time Result & Over 2.5 Goals, or another bracket of goals to occur within the chosen match. Another slightly safer suggestion would be to get behind A Goal In Both Halves, which is similar to the To Score In Both Halves market, but where there’s no restrictions over who scores.
