Hello there, football fan!

As sports bets get more and more popular, so it grows the number of mistakes that people tend to do when they have no knowledge of the market. Sure, you may be betting just for fun and not necessarily to win money, but either way, it’s more enjoyable when you win, right?

Of course that we’re just one part of the formula. It won’t work if you don’t do your part. It’s important to know the common mistakes that bettor do in order to start having consistency and profit over your football bets. Let’s check the Top 5:

5 – Shady Betting Websites

When searching where to place your bets online you will find many companies and websites that offer great advantages compared with the standard and more well-known companies. Well, don’t fall for that. The gambling world is full of people that try to make money misleading and deceiving other people, looking for easy money. Just go for the famous and traditional ones that you will be fine.

4 – Multiple Bets / Accumulators / Parlays

Who was smarter? The Multiple Bettor got more matches correct but lost every penny. The Single Bettor got more reds but made a good profit!

An accumulator bet, also known as a parlay, is a single bet that links together more than one bet and is dependent on all the bets winning to land a profit. It is very common to confuse this kind of bet with a higher chance of making a lot of money.

The truth is that if you have a good analysis on the matches and you know your odds you will be better placing single bets then accumulators. Sports bettings are all about probabilities (that’s what Stork Sports do!) and when you accumulate a bet all you are doing is trading higher gains for higher risks. And if it’s like that, you might as well just buy a lottery ticket.

3 – High Chance, Low Odds

After seven consecutive wins, it only took one bad result to lose everything

This is a very common mistake that most beginners make. You start betting on things that have a great probability and low odds and at first, and you are quite successful. Then, after just one bet gone wrong, you lose everything.
These bets seem safe but the odds are so low that eventually, you will lose all that you won. The illusion comes because you will probably start with a great winning streak and will not notice that the risks are higher than the payoffs.

2 – 100% Guaranteed Bets

Repeat with me: THERE ARE NO 100% GUARANTEED BETS.
Really, a magic formula that will give you 100% certainty that you will win a bet doesn’t exist. Don’t waste your time and money looking for them. Work hard to have a good methodology so you will win more than you lose. But you will eventually some bets – and that’s ok!

1 – No consistency

Consistency is having a predictable long-term result. The biggest mistake you could make in sports betting is not having a methodology. Many people lose a lot of money because they just bet based on their guts, or get blind by some lucky guesses that eventually pay out.

In the betting world, you lose some and you win some, but you will only learn how to truly be successful if you use a methodology. How do you pick your bets? You need a clear answer to that question if you want to succeed. At Stork Sports we believe that using statistical models are the best way to pick our bets and we have been quite successful! Want to understand how we do it?
