Soccer Betting -- Tips for Newbies
19.5 || webmaster

Football, or soccer, is one of the biggest sports in the world. In fact, with over 3 billion fans, there is no ifs, ands, or buts…Soccer dominates the world of sports, and stands atop of it. Naturally, there are a ton of people who like to bet on such a popular sport, which means there are plenty of newcomers who visit online sportsbooks for the first time, and are lost. In this article, we would like to offer up some tips for newbies, who may not know where to start with soccer wagering.

Learn the Odds

The most important aspect of betting on soccer is learning how to read and understand odds. Luckily, in 2024, it is easier than ever to learn all about soccer odds, and sports betting odds in general. There are so many websites that will share the proper way to engage with odds, and even explain the differences between different ways to present them.

Decimal: Used primarily by European bookies, decimal odds are represented by decimal numbers. The favorite is given a lower decimal, meaning that that is how much you will win by wagering 1 Euro on the favorite. The higher decimal denotes the underdog.
Fractions: In the UK and in Ireland, you will come across fractional odds. The top number here represents the amount you can win, whereas the bottom represents the amount you need to wager.
Money Line: In the USA, money line odds are the most common. The bookies use positive and negative numbers in order to show the underdog (+) and the favorite (-).

Find a Good Bookie

Finding a good, safe, and reliable bookie should be a top concern. When dealing with personal information, as well as with cash, security is a top priority. First, you must deduce if the bookie itself is reliable. To do so, we look at the history, reputation, and current standing of the bookie in the public eye.

Once you’ve found a safe and reliable website, you must ensure that they take security seriously. Not only that, but upping your own standards for online security can only be beneficial. After all, with cybercrime on the rise, digital safety has become a very serious issue.

Betting Strategy and Bankroll Management

Finally, learning a bit about betting strategies and responsible money management is very important. For those who don’t know, betting strategies take the focus away from formulating a “winning strategy,” and instead focus on how much you bet, when, and why.

The most popular betting strategies nowadays are progressive betting strategies, which encourage upping your wager each time you don’t win. The idea is that, in the case of an eventual win, you have the opportunity to win back your cash, and then a little extra.

Betting strategies are just a small aspect of managing your bankroll though. Financial responsibility is an important part of betting, and gambling. Proper bankroll management is one of the primary ways that pros and amateurs alike avoid falling victim to problem gambling.
