Well,Novice’s Guide to On-line Sports Betting Articles to many people sports betting is first class excitement as well as great entertainment, but you should always keep in mind that the betting industry is not here to entertain you – the bookmakers want your money and punters (gamblers) want to beat the bookies. That is the simple truth of betting; still you can have great fun betting if you control your stakes in a sensible manor and of course win more than you lose! Both tasks are easier said than done, but hopefully this guide will increase your chances of success.
Step 1: Choose your farsbet(s)
Novices to on-line betting will without a doubt face a number of confusing aspects in their effort to choose their bookmaker.
First of all, there is the media (computer and internet) which you may not be familiar with. Surfing a bookie website can actually be somewhat difficult even for experienced internet users; often due to a confusing interface, the mere complexity of information presented to you and perhaps the many possibilities of taking different actions on the website. But no need to worry – in time most people familiarize with several website interfaces.
Secondly, the number of bookies in the on-line betting industry has exploded over the past few years, and they are not all reliable, which means that you could end up making a bad choice. To avoid this have a look at our list of reliable bookmakers or if you have friends who bet on-line ask them for advice. You can also visit some of the many fora concerned with betting or read through the chapter What is a quality bookmaker? presented in this guide to get an idea of what characteristics a reliable and fair bookmaker usually possess.
Start your betting experience by choosing only one bookmaker. This will make you familiar with the different types of odds, games and so forth without having to deal with two or more interfaces. By the time you feel comfortable with the website of that bookie and might have become serious about winning money you should definitely sign up with more bookmakers. The reason for this is simply that you only want to place your money where it will do you most good; using the bookie with the highest odds on an event gives you higher profit in case you win.
Step 2: Open an account
Naturally there are different ways of doing this depending on the bookmakers, but in general you need to fill in a standard registration form. At the same time you need to register payment method for example by credit card. Before you give away sensitive information of this kind make sure that the bookmaker has a serious security politic. Approximately 24 hours later the bookmaker will confirm that your credit card has been accepted. Your username and password will then be sent to you either by email or post delivery. You are ready to rumble…
Step 3: What type of bet?
Keep it simple in the beginning. Pick the sports, leagues or players that you have extensive knowledge about. Use oddsDNA.com to find additional up-to-date stats on the subjects in question, before you buy your ticket (bet slip).
Most people are familiar with 1X2-odds so it is recommendable to stick to this type of odds until you feel more confident with the on-line betting environment.
Step 4: Place your bets, please!
Once you have found an interesting play that you want to back up, just put a little amount of your deposit at stake – if you have means like the king of Saudi Arabia, then just forget that last remark. Familiarize yourself to the experience of loosing and winning before you raise your stakes. When you have placed your bet there is no turning back – for better or for worse.
Step 5: Loser or winner?
Should you lose on your first bet, then rest assure it has happened too many people before you. Better luck next time…
Actually, winning the first bet sometimes make people careless, in terms of them thinking they have a special ability to foresee the outcome of a game without researching for facts on teams and players first. In the long run, there is only one way to beat the bookie: Know as much or more about your subject than the bookmaker does.
