Football Betting – Tips to knock out fighting

Betting on major international soccer tournaments like EURO or the upcoming MS is a unique and challenging experience. When the tournament swings from the baseline phase to the playoffs, a lot of factors will change, so punters need to change strategy. To be able to betting on the tournament earn, you will notice the most basic differences between phase and play-off.

In this article, we introduce the five biggest differences that you should take into account. The differences are, of course, be more or less applied to various long competitions such as the Champions League or Europa League.

1) Teams are going to the maximum

Football is a kind of strange sport. More than any other sport you can not be sure of how hard the team will go into the match – that is, if no other option. The basic part of the tournament is often born some surprise at the expense favorite. This is caused in most cases that the opponents underestimated or wanted to save more fights (especially if you already have a team sure to advance to the knockout phase).

Matches within the main groups so bettors can frustrate. However, this problem is usually in the knockout phase of the tournament eliminated. Teams know that just one hesitation and go home. In the case of long-term competition type Champions League or European leagues are playing double-header, but when the team significantly underestimates one match, has little chance of that in the second match of the development reverses.

As a result, this means that the punters do not have to focus so much on psychology. Saved time and effort may prefer to pay attention to what is on the pitch.

2) increases the importance of player injuries

In the advanced stage of the football tournament, the more important the role of injury. Players already played several high-intensity games against quality opponents. Virtually every team will have a player who will not be able to play, or a player who is unable to play hard because of some minor injuries. Of course you need to pay attention especially important players of the team – those are usually fearless and trying to “take on” (this is especially true for attackers), that in turn have a higher risk of injury.

3) Cards

If a player in the tournament receives two yellow cards or a red one, so he will not play in the next match – no matter if the next match should be final. Teams already in the tournament to play several games, so it is very likely that some players will be on the account of a card (and thus the potential punishment for the next match). So you have to carefully monitor how the players have cards, as this can have an impact on their performance and the performance of the whole team.

In the past we have seen some cases vykartování important player, followed by a slight (or complete) the collapse of the team. When a player drops from the report on which was built the strategy team has a player on a very adverse impact, since it is virtually impossible to quickly adapt to different game system.

4) evaluate the performance of teams (and players) in the basic part

At the beginning of the tournament you have relatively little idea of ​​how you will be given the players (and generally teams) lead since the qualification already passed quite a long time. While teams in the meantime played friendly matches, but it is very unlikely that these struggles players approached with maximum effort (or that joined the assembly, which will play in the tournament).

That means the problem for bettors, as well as for individual teams, which his rivals fail to prepare well. However, this problem is gradually disappearing, because every game offers bettors and coaches a lot of information. Remember that the more information you have, the greater your chance of success.

5) The favorites will be much bet

From the beginning of the tournament (logically) the most bet on favorites. When the first match but show how the teams really are. It will offer new friends, which will bet The betting public is really fierce.

Discussions betting public, then of course you have to take into account, as largely influences the size of the courses. More information on this topic, see the article How to conduct affects the public betting strategy? – This issue should not be ignored, as appropriate knowledge in this case, you can be helped to gain great benefits.

Why you should bet on your favorite team?

We often hear that punters would not bet on teams, which are somehow emotionally attached. If you on the results of the team depends, can not be objective, and if you are not objective, makes a wrong decision – or at least this is usually justified this claim. On the one hand, it is true, but on the other hand is betting on your favorite team and various benefits. That is why today we look at the comparison of the advantages and disadvantages betting favorite team:

Do you know the team really well

The more you know about playing teams, the greater the chances are that your tip will be successful. If you intend to bet on the team that you support, you probably know more about it than the vast majority of bettors. If his knowledge let blind – and make sufficient inquiries about the other team – you get a big lead.

It is likely that perform quality analysis

It is easier to perform in-depth analysis of the match, which ranks your favorite team. If your problem is lack of motivation, betting on your favorite teams can be a good solution.

You’ll have a great overview of injuries and assembly

The closer you will get to that team, the better you will get an overview of the health of the players, their current form, the situation at the club and so forth. With this information you can easily find a value that remains hidden to other punters.

You well know coach

You will have excellent knowledge of the coach of the team – its strengths, weaknesses and tendencies. If you can “analyze” the coach of the other team (which goes well, for example in the NHL, with teams playing several times a year), you get an overview of what they are capable of individual trainers. This is a huge advantage.

Betting against your team will be tough, but if after a good pre-game analysis will find that correct procedure is to bet on the opponent’s nothing we can do about it. Although against “their” team hate to bet, however emotionally bind to your favorite team is stupid. Expensive stupidity.


At the least, are the disadvantages. Asi (correctly) assume that the disadvantages are associated mainly with emotional possibl influence punter.

Only you yourself know to what extent you are subject to emotions

Some people just are not able to control your emotions and bet according to the principle of reason. Good punters will not have a problem with making money by betting against your team. While you will be losing your favorite team sorry, there’s nothing you can do about it. Your team loses, whether you bet against him or not.

It is not easy to rejoice when your team gets a goal

Some people enjoy watching games on TV. They often get together with friends, bring beer, some good food and cheer. But if you bet against your favorite team – and you will be hoping to lose – this activity they will not be nearly as fun.

If we are not careful, you make poor decisions regarding bankroll
If you are not objective, it may happen that on your team you bet too big amount. You will in fact think that the advantage of the team is bigger than it actually is. Or, conversely, you can bet too little, because you think that your favorite team does not have a big advantage. If you are not objective, your bankroll will suffer. Ideally, you should keep the same size bets.

Well you know only one team
An advantage we mentioned that your favorite team well know. However, this statement stands on the premise that you get to work thoroughly and rehearse the second team. If you do not, you’ll have a big problem. You will have much less information, so your chances of success drop considerably.
