It’s hard to talk about making money online without telling you how to win at sports betting. But have you ever tried to bet on a match or a race? It is a method that many people use to make ends meet; and if you do it right, it could also be for you.
It might have always seemed a bit complicated to you, but don’t worry, I’ll explain everything to you and you’ll be ready to start betting on your favorite club this weekend.
The concept is simple. You choose a sporting event (a tennis match, a football match, a cycling race, etc.) and you bet on a result:
- Rafael Nadal’s victory in 3 sets against Richard Gasquet in the final of the Monte-Carlo tournament
- draw between Manchester United and Chelsea for Matchday 24 of the English Premier League
- Chris Froome’s victory in the 2018 Tour de France.
The Sbobet88 results do not all have the same value, this is called the odds. For example, a victory for Nadal would not be a big surprise, his odds will then be 1.2, which means he has a one in 1.2 chance of winning. On the other hand, a victory for Gasquet is much more unexpected, his odds will then be 4. This means that the bookmakers estimate that there is a one in four chance that Gasquet will win.
The odds vary until the start of the event in question. If rumors run about back pain for Rafa Nadal, his odds could go up and that of Gasquet fall to 3: the bookmakers then become more optimistic about Richard Gasquet’s chances of winning the match.
Ok, you get the idea, this is about betting on an outcome, and this bet is characterized by an odds which represents the probability of that outcome occurring.
But, by the way, what do we bet?
Money of course. This is called a bet . You can bet from 1 euro. We say that we put a sum of money on a result , for example 10 euros on a draw between OM and Lorient or 5 euros on the first place of France in the qualifying group for the World Cup of soccer. If you win, you will get your stake multiplied by the odds.
Once the match is over, the winnings are transferred to the various winners of the bets. Suppose you bet 10 euros on OM’s victory against Lorient. The odds are as follows: 1.4 for OM, 2.6 for Lorient and 2.3 for a draw. If OM wins, you leave with 14 euros, ie 10 euros * 1.4. Your gain is therefore 4 euros (14 euros of won less 10 euros of stake).
If Lorient wins or the two clubs draw, you leave with empty pockets, and your piggy bank has been relieved of 10 euros (the 10 euros you bet).
What is the best odds to win in sports betting?
The best odds are the bet that will win. A priori, there is therefore no good or bad odds, you must try to accurately predict the outcome of the match.
