While I was looking at one of my favourite betting forums I came across a rather interesting betting system offered by a bettor from England. The basis of his method was to back the teams that haven’t lost any of their last five matches. The requested odds are low, between 1.2 and 1.5, omitting extremely low odds like say those below 1.2. When the match is too unpredictable and the odds are high he bets on double – victory and draw or draw no bet, depending on which of the two types of bets the offered rate is within the limits prescribed by the bettor.
The system is called Unbeatable by its creator, but unfortunately doesn’t beat the betting houses, although it offers some really interesting ideas. So far, he has made exactly 160 bets of which 106 are winners and the other losers. The bank is below the line with 2.77 units, which is not too bad, but obviously something must be fixed in this system to yield betting profits.
People who follow the system in the forum suggest to bet on doubles, not just on singles, but this is something I cannot agree entirely, because thereby he would increase the chances of loss and when betting on low odds the most important thing is to make as many winners as you can.
Either way, this betting system is a step in the right direction and is good for its creator. Even if he fails to find a winner, which is the most probable scenario, it will surely enrich his knowledge about betting and how to gain profit from gambling or at least how not to lose.
Otherwise, my experience with these, let’s name them straight betting systems, where we found a pattern according to which we bet, shows that they generally lead to small but sure loss. It would really take a lot of time to lose your entire bankroll, but it will happen. These betting systems need something more to refine their results, but it’s something at least I still don’t know.
Take a look at every serious betting forum or site and you’ll see that many punters are looking for help about working with Microsoft Excel. This is a program that should be in the arsenal of every serious bettor if he or she wants to be successful and gain profit from football betting. It is a powerful tool for creation and verification of different betting strategies.
Whether it’s to check the best odds for a match or how often a team finishes with under or over 3 goals in their matches Microsoft Excel is the program you need. Moreover, it can safely do very simple betting things such as saving your betting predictions and bets, so you can constantly monitor if you are on plus or heading for the loss from yours bets.
But let’s get back to far more complex betting techniques that you can do with Excel. Do you want to check how many times a team has ended with a victory by two goals or more? Of course, this is only an example, you might want to check how many times a team has scored one or no goals in the last 20 matches? All this you can do with one excel file which to scrape the needed statistics from a betting site for less than a minute. It will take out for you the necessary information and then arrange it in a suitable way.
But now comes the complicated question – how to do all this? This is really complicated because it requires pretty good knowledge. However, to have success in betting, you must make some effort which will repay you rich.
Personally, my advice is to download two books to help you in learning excel. The first one is Excel for dummies and the other is VBA for dummies. The latter is particularly valuable because it lists all those techniques that will allow you to automate everything in excel so as to make the program work for you.
Your betting ideas can work on excel. It is an investment in time, which will pay you off with finding some successful betting strategy later.
The matches from the second round of the European Champions League start this Tuesday and one of the most interesting matches for betting is actually the first one for the day. It will be played in Russia, which means three hours earlier than the other matches because of the time difference and the cold weather there.
Spartak Moscow welcomes Celtic in a match where the victory for any of the two sides will increase their chances to rank second in the group and move forward in the tournament with Barcelona.
It was exactly Barcelona that Spartak played with in the first match and they played really well. The Moscow players lost the match, but losing from Barcelona at Camp Nou with 3-2 is something that almost every team in the world should be proud of. Moreover, Spartak Moscow led at the halftime with 1:2 and only the genius of Messi saved the Spaniards and many betting houses.
Spartak have presented successfully in qualification matches, where they beat the Turkish team of Fenerbahce after a win with 2-1 in Moscow and a draw 1-1 in Istanbul.
Celtic is also performing great in the Champions League. The team won all six games in the preliminary qualifications and are entitled to participate in the group stage. Then followed a draw at home with Benfica – 0:0, which also can’t be called a poor result.
Both teams play differently in their home leagues. Currently Spartak Moscow is ranked fifth in Russia, as the difference between the team and the leader in the standings Anji is 4 points. Spartak has six wins, three losses and a draw, but at home the team plays really well. They have made three wins from three matches so far but there is one thing that should be noted. In all three matches the Spartak players conceded goals.
Celtic in turn presents not so well in Scotland but this is something that might be expected, given the fact that their title is 99% secure after the relegation of Rangers. That’s why it is normal for the team to be a little more relaxed in the league. It is clear that Celtic will play in this match at their maximum, as now the Champions League is the most important tournament for them.
Allowing goals from Spartak at home in all their games so far and the opportunity Celtic has to concentrate mostly in this match gives me the idea to bet on goals here. I think both teams will score tonight and the betting odds for it is about 1.9.
