Try to find a predictable division. However, most divisions will have certain particularities that might be useful for you. For example, in Italy, football is based mostly on defense. There are not many goals scored and a draw is considered almost a victory. The most common result is 1-1, but you could find 0-0 often. Build your football betting strategy accordingly. Bet on 0-0, 1-1, 1-0 and 0-1 and you will be a winner on average. Even if you loose some games of this kind, your luck will change eventually. If you want a division with many goals so you could apply the mirrored football betting strategy, you could try Holland or the English First Division. Try to avoid 1×2 bets on those divisions, as they are unpredictable and the teams will have almost the same value. Don’t be happy if the first place plays the last place at home. This is not a safe game, as the last placed team could beat the leader just as well. Use those two divisions only for exact score bets and try other predictable championships for 1×2 bets.
Never bet on cups, especially in France. The French Cup is one of the most unpredictable competitions, for some unknown reason. There are some cases when the leader of the first division is eliminated from the Cup by a virtually unknown fifth division team. Those are 1×2 matches where anything could happen. Try to avoid cups in generally, but keep an eye on the French cup mostly. If you like to take chances and you have a feeling about a certain small team, place a bet on it. After all, football betting is for fun also, and you can be sure watching the game is more enjoyable if you have a bet placed on a certain team.
Don’t place bets only on favorites. Let’s make some simple calculations. For example, let’s take FC Barcelona on a good year. They will have a medium odd of 1.15. When they are playing Real Madrid, they will have a chance of 2-2.5. However, for the weaker teams, they could go down to 1.05 odds on winning. When the championship is over, they will have a win-draw-loose line of 30-5-5. If you place one dollar for Barcelona to win on all the 40 matches, you will have 40 dollars invested. You will win 30 of them at a medium odd of 1.15. You will win 34.5 dollars from 40 invested, so you loose on average. This is why you should also bet on smaller teams that are in good form for the moment.
