If you want to beat your soccer bookies, then you must know the fundamentals of soccer betting. Knowing how to bet and what to bet.
In this section, we will highlight a few important factors to consider before you embark on soccer betting.
1. Team Form
Look at their recent team form. Check who was the opposition and what was the situation of the opposition at the time of the game. If available, read the recent match reports to see if the team was unlucky because of opposition goalkeeper having a great day etc.
2. Home and Away Records
Check for home and away statistics. Some teams play better at home ground, some play better away. Also check if the game is a local derby and if teams share the stadium.
Check the history between the two clubs. The home and away history is important. You will be surprised how the history repeats in some games year after year.
4. Team news
Be sure always to check for injuries and suspensions. Which players are missing and how important are they. If there are injuries check if it is long-time injuries or new injuries since the last game etc. How good are the players who will play instead.
Motivation is very important, especially when the season end is near. Ask yourself if the team needs points. Is the team playing European football and maybe will rest players. Is the team interested in the domestic cup.
Check the team schedule. How many games have they played in recent days. Could they be tired. When are they playing again. Is the next game very important to the team.
