For anyone wanting to take their betting into their own hands, I have long extolled the virtues of developing your own expertise in a niche area and this week I want to discuss football betting tips
If you know about a sport or niche market – you could be sitting on a potential betting goldmine to beat the bookies with.
This is because bookmakers only have a limited resource pool in their odds compilers and the further you get away from the most popular sports & leagues, the better chance you have of getting an edge.
There is perhaps no better example of this than with the non-league betting expert Skeeve, who shared with us his top ten football betting tips, secrets and advice. To showcase this in today’s blog post I have five of his top football tips to share with you.
Five Expert Football Betting Tips
Non league expert ‘Skeeve’ is a shining example of how tipsters are made not born, with hard work and commitment being a key part of his success. Despite living in Croatia and speaking English as a second language, Skeeve has returned a tremendous profit betting on the English non-league since he launched his tipping service. We asked Skeeve if he would be prepared to share some tips on developing expertise so that SBC members can start down this path on the right foot.
In this exclusive article, Skeeve shares five top tips for developing your expertise in football. The article focuses on non league, but the principles are the same for other sports.
1) Pick a league. No, not eight leagues – if you have a busy lifestyle, a league or two are more than enough. You’ll have to know the language of course – if you’re trying to focus on the Scottish 2nd Divison and you only speak German, well, I won’t be subscribing to your service, thank you very much.
2) Don’t take your eyes off the stats. I use the statto.com website and that, combined with my own excel sheets, is pretty much everything I need as far as stats are concerned. When you’re looking at the stats for a team that’s playing away from home, you don’t just look at their overall away form or at their away form in the last six games. You look at their results away at strugglers or away at top ten teams – this depends on the opponents of course. You take a look at their midweek games only or their Saturday games only. You take a look at the games they played under heavy rain and strong wind. You take a look at the games they were forced to play without their key midfielder. As I said, every little thing is the most important thing.
3) Don’t think online editions of local papers are useless. That’s where you find out who’s still injured, who’s returned to training and who’s been made available for a loan. That’s where you read a pre-match interview with the manager and a post-match interview with the skipper. That’s where you notice the game might not go ahead at all because of the torrential rain in that part of England.
4) Don’t ignore the fans’ forums. That’s where you hear the latest rumours. That’s where you read about fans’ mood. That’s where you find out how much longer is their centre-half going to be out with a nasty injury. That’s where you feel stupid for being a researcher and not a fan. Getting ahead of the bookies on team news is extremely important, especially in the lower leagues. I think I can identify key players well enough and I always laugh when I notice the BBC forget about a couple of suspensions or don’t mention the new signings, stuff like that. That’s why official websites, online editions of local papers and fans’ forums are very important
5) Take a look at every match highlights you can find. It’s one thing to read the match reports written from two different perspectives, but when you see the actual ten-minute highlights, it’s almost like seeing all characters from your novel come to life at the same time. There’s plenty of match highlights available on the internet and, if you’re keeping an eye on fans’ forums, local papers and official websites, you’ll know where to find what you’re looking for. Youtube is a good resource for this as well as specialise sites like this one: http://fcvideo.co.uk/hyhighlights.html
