Profitable bets: 5 markets to get more profitability to your bets

We bet for fun, to give more excitement to games and sporting events and, things as they are, also for the money. It is clear that we are not going to make gold betting (it is the standard nº1 of the bettor), but we can get extra money that always comes in handy thanks to our knowledge of the different sports competitions. Everyone has their preferences when it comes to betting, some sports or fetish markets, a tipster header, etc., but you also have to talk about profitable bets.

But before entering to talk about markets it is convenient to define what are profitable bets. We can say that they are those that have great value and very few options to go wrong, always with good odds that allow us to achieve an interesting benefit. For example, betting that a big team like Barça or Real Madrid will beat the 1.50 odds in its field is an almost certain bet, but profitable it has little. On the other hand, the markets that we will see below can give us very profitable bets.

Search, compare and choose the best odds

Undoubtedly, the first advice to get the most out of our sports bets is to compare the odds offered by the different bookmakers and choose the highest one. If we limit ourselves to the 1X2 market, the difference can be only a few cents, but in the case of more specific bets, such as handicaps, goalscoring or corner kicks we can find important differences between what a bookmaker offers us of bets and another.
It is not surprising that while a player’s goal is paid at € 2 in a bookie, others have a share of 1.60. By investing the same amount, for example € 1, we see that in the first bookmaker we get a profit of € 1, doubling the bet, and in the second we only get € 0.60. The ability to compare odds and always choose the best is one of the reasons to have an account in more than one bookmaker, so that we always make the most profitable bet for our interests.

Profitable bets in the double chance

The most habitual followers of our forecasts will know that we have a certain devotion for this market. With the double chance we cover 66.6% of the possible results, so that the chances of losing are reduced and the bet can become very profitable. We can hunt very interesting double chances above 1.70, even reaching 2.00. The key, as always, is to make a good analysis of what the bookmaker offers and how the teams arrive.

Many times the name of the team or its position in the classification influences more than the situation in which they arrive, both in terms of losses due to injury or penalty, tiredness due to having played during the week or FIFA virus, etc. as to the team’s trend. Throughout the season each team goes through spectacular times and others of low, and it is not uncommon for the team to win or tie a superior a priori team that is at a bad time. Minimizes risks and is very profitable also in combination bets.
1X2 bets without a variable

Undoubtedly, the most well-known bet here is the bet without draw or Asian handicap 0, in which we eliminate the possibility of a tie – zero bet – and we play it to the favorite 50/50. The odds are lower than in a 1X2 bet but it can be equally good, especially when the odds of 1, X and 2 are quite even, above par reaching over 3.0, but there is a team that has a hard time winning the match because of their situation. A good analysis is key.

In the same way that we eliminate the X, some bookmakers allow us to bet without the local team or visitor, so we choose between 1 and X or 2 and X as we cancel the visitor or local option respectively. The same as in the bet without a tie, when the odds for the three options are very even, it can be a very profitable bet. For example, if you face two teams with a tie tendency, you can bet on the X, canceling the team with more options to win the match.

Asian handicaps

At the beginning we said that it does not make much sense to bet on the victory of a team at very low odds, but an Asian -1 improves the odds of the favorite and cancels the bet if it wins by the minimum. Beyond this -1, we have a variety of Asian handicaps, especially the 0.25, which allow us to get very profitable bets where we get a good share if the forecasts are met and we partially cover if something goes wrong. They are a very interesting tool when it comes to improving odds.

Goal bets on profitable betting systems

The same scenario we have with the Asian totals. The markets of goals are very popular, almost as much as those of 1X2, but sometimes the odds of an over / under does not convince to us, and the one of the following goes of mother. Here we can enter an Asian total, either exact or with a 0.25 or 0.75, to ensure gains. As in the case of handicaps, the objective would be to find the best odds with the best chance of leaving, canceling all or part of a result to maximize the investment.

Another profitable bet in the world of goals is the market “number of goals”, or similar. It is a market where we have several options, usually 0-1, 2-3 and 4 or more goals, and we have to choose one, generally with better odds to the over / under. Of course, you have to fine tune for what, even at the risk of being redundant, it is important to analyze well the trends and scoring statistics of both teams, for and against, at home for the local and outside for the visitor.

Betting statistics

Each time we find more betting markets, among which the statistical bets stand out: corner kicks, cards, offside, fouls, possession, shots of the team or the player … It is often said that the numbers do not lie, and although the statistics are to break them is easy to find a statistical bet that is very profitable. In markets such as the handicaps of corners or the corners that a team will draw we can find real bargains that will make your bets even more profitable, obtaining higher profits than if we bet on conventional markets.

As you may have seen, some of them are markets that go unnoticed when talking about bets in general, for example on the radio or on TV, but if we look closely at the different markets, we find very profitable bets easily. All you need is for luck to shine. Some of them like scorecast bets can be very profitable, but they are also a bit of a game to play Russian roulette – the same goes for betting on exact results. A case apart is the live betting, where you can also give very profitable bets if you are watching the game and you are able to anticipate the bookmaker of bets and what will happen on the lawn.
