Choosing the best odds​

You know the bookmakers have an edge over us, the players. The odds are stacked against us. So it is very important to have accounts on a few bookmakers and to choose the best odds. For example, bet365 is my main bookmaker, they might have Manchester United at @1.75 odds to win, but Betfair where I do not have an account has @1.78. The majority of players won't open a new account for the better odds, and that's their mistake. In the long run, it adds up, your potential winnings are the most important factor. So being too lazy to open a new account is not in your favor. Have at your disposal accounts at most of the major sportsbooks and you will already be at better odds to profit in the long run.


Obviously, new players benefit from bonuses more but promotions are not limited only to new players. Some bookmakers like BetOnline have tons of promotions every month. Be sure to check the promotions page of your bookmakers weekly, so you can benefit from using their platform. Make sure to read the terms and conditions first, you will have to meet the bonus clearing requirements before your bonus can be withdrawn.

Do not copy other bettors​

Do not copy tips from online forums such as this or other services that sell betting tips. A lot of people are lazy and want just to copy someone else. Instead, read posts and try to inform yourself. Make your own opinion and decide by yourself where you want to stake your money. Stay away from fixed matches too, no one is going to sell you real information like this, that will make you tons of money. It's all scams.

Do not chase losses​

Do not chase losses, increasing your bet stake will lead you to lose your entire bankroll in the end. Martingale system is maybe going to be profitable in the short term, but in the long term, it always leads to losing your entire bankroll. I have experienced this myself, so I want to make sure no one repeats my mistake.
1 or 2% of your bankroll per bet is a reasonable amount.

What's your take on this?
Winning at online sports betting requires knowledge, research, and discipline. The first step is to develop a strategy and stick to it, avoiding impulsive decisions. It's also important to stay up-to-date on current events and news related to the sport or team you're betting on. Analyzing statistics, trends, and past performances can also provide valuable insights into making informed bets. Utilizing multiple sportsbooks can increase the chances of finding the best odds and line values. Bankroll management is also essential to ensure that losses do not exceed profits. Overall, winning at online sports betting requires patience, dedication, and a willingness to learn and adapt to changes.
Absolutely, winning at online sports betting requires strategy and informed decision-making. Your insights on this topic are spot-on. Finding the best odds is indeed crucial. Bookmakers do hold an edge, but by comparing odds across different platforms, like you mentioned with bet365 and Betfair, you can maximize your potential winnings over time. It's a step towards beating the odds.
