Which should my first bet be?

What is an odd?

When do I bet?

If your analysis (you can do it in the Academy), together with your opinion and sensitivity for a match, convinces you that Team A will win, then that should be your bet. There are several markets you can bet on: total number of goals in a game, who will score first, result at half-time, etc.

The odd is the inverse of the probability. The higher the odd, the more unlikely the corresponding outcome is. For that reason, if you win, the prize is higher, because it is more difficult to happen.

Bet before or during the game. Most bookmakers allow you to place bets during the game, when certain events can cause the prize you receive for a particular bet to vary greatly. Betting gives more excitement and adrenaline to your favourite sport!

Interpreting as probabilities
Observe the table on the right: in a given bookmaker you find, for a Barcelona vs Levante match, the following possible bets within the match odds market.
Match Odds

Barcelona

1.1

Levante

21

The Draw

9

Analyzing the probabilities of each of the events:

Barcelona = 1/1.1 = 90,9%

Levante = 1/21 = 4,76%

The Draw = 1/9 = 11,11%

 
Betting
Let's suppose you arrive at the conclusion that Levante has more chances of winning the game and you decide to bet in favour of Levante. Click on the 21 odd to bet, for example, €10 on Levante to win.

Barcelona vs Levante

Match Odds

 Levante

Odd:

21

Bet:

€10

Possible Profit:

» €200

Profit = (odd of the bet - 1) x bet value

In this example, Profit = (21 - 1) x 10€ = 200€

If Levante wins, you win €200 (in addition to recovering the €10 wagered).

If Barcelona wins, you lose €10. That is, you lose the amount you wagered.

If the match ends in a tie, you also lose the €10 you bet.

 
 
Learn +tips for a bettor

  Start slowly. If you can't make a profit betting €50, you will not succeed by betting €500 either.
  Do not feel that you have to meet any goals, that is, do not try to win X on each bet or set of bets.
 Never bet all of your bank, that is, all your money.
 Do not be fooled by a series of consecutive wins.
 Do not bet on the club you support.
 Never place bets without a careful analysis just to quickly recover your money after a lost bet.
 Use a personal journal to justify all your bets. This way you will avoid making the same mistake twice.
