In the world of betting, there are three big giants that occupy the lion’s share of the total number of bets: football, hockey, and basketball. Mixed martial arts, volleyball, tennis, Dota 2, CS: GO, biathlon, and cross-country skiing are also very popular. The popularity of these disciplines is associated with a large audience of fans and the presence of sports broadcasts. In addition, the bookmakers offer a large selection of no deposit bonuses for betting on these sports. Gambling on traditional disciplines is not always profitable over the long run, as there is a large percentage of unexpected results, especially when it comes to football and tennis.
Many professional bettors prefer disciplines that are not the most popular in this area. Among such areas are American football and baseball. These two traditional disciplines in the United States do not enjoy large audiences, but they can bring high profits. This is influenced by a small percentage of sensational results and low competition among professional bettors.
To be successful in betting, it is important to understand the specifics of the discipline and learn how to analyze matches. Curling is one of the most profitable disciplines. It is older than football, tennis, and hockey. The first curling games were held in the 16th century. Nowadays, fun with a granite stone does not have many fans, of course, if we are not talking about Canada and Sweden. It rarely appears in the line of bookmakers, but the low percentage of unexpected outcomes makes curling an ideal object for gambling.
How to choose a sport to bet on?
The choice of sports disciplines is huge. There can be more than 50 options in the bookmaker’s line, and this does not take into account cybersport disciplines and virtual ones. When choosing the best discipline for betting, it is important to be guided by certain arguments. In this case, we are talking about choosing a discipline that will bring regular, rather than periodic, income.
- Sport must be predictable. If you take e-sports, most teams are constantly changing players, which makes detailed analysis problematic, since the strength of the team is constantly changing.
- The depth of the description. Many novice bettors make a mistake and choose an office with the deepest possible description. Of course, the list of events should not be meager, but it is not its variability that is more important, but the availability of those bet markets that interest you. If you are planning to bet on the number of yellow cards, then it is important to choose the bookmaker that accepts such stakes.
- Understanding sports. It is the key point to successful gambling. It is not enough to be skillful with numbers or have good intuition. Successful betting is possible only when you have an idea of the chosen object. It is not necessary to go to the football section for this, although the presence of specialized knowledge simplifies the analysis of statistics. It is enough to study the rules of sports, find out the features of each position on the field, possible tactical decisions, and the value of each athlete.
This will allow you to look at the statistics and the balance of power on the field in the right light. These three factors make it possible to choose the sport for successful betting.
Thus, we can conclude that in order to place stakes and win, you need to understand all the rules and nuances, as well as have access to all possible data.
