Football,Soccer,Match Draws - You Get Better Odds !!.
As our other articles
explain,those novelty football bets like first scorer,correct
score,corners betting etc.are to be avoided,as they are very
profitable to the bookmakers (that's why they push them),so avoid
those bets,and serious football punters should concentrate on the
match result - home away or draw.
Most of us have a definite
opinion on who will win the game,and often the draw is not
It seems a bit wimpish to say to yourself,I don't
know who will win,and maybe the draw is best bet.
The bookmakers know this is how the average punter thinks,and
therefore trim the odds for either team to win,and offer generous
odds for the draw,in the full knowledge that most punters will not
take those drawn game odds.
Remember more than a quarter of
games end in a draw in England (and nearer 30% in some leagues
around the world).
Take away the lop sided
games,where a top home side is almost sure to win against poor
opposition,and that draw percentage goes even higher when you
discard those easy to win games.
Even without discarding
those sort of games,anyone who bets the draw for EVERY match will
almost break even,and you should show a profit - just by tweaking
which games you bet on.
It may not appeal to the fun punter
who does not want to watch a boring drawn game of football.However
if you want to win with your betting strategy,then the draw bet is
irresistible to shrewd bettors.
Actually,when you watch a
game and your selection goes,lets say, 2 goals down,your bet is
virtually sunk,as you need 3 goals to collect,but the draw backer is
still in with a good chance at 2 goals comeback - so your interest
in the game is maintained to the end.
So,which games are the best when backing the draw ?.
Obviously low scoring games have a higher chance of ending in a
draw than high goals games.Therefore look for 2 dour,defensive sides
that rarely attack with abandon - you can quickly spot these sides
with the stats that are now available to football fans - or just let
the bookies do the research for you and look for games where they
offer low odds for 2.7 goals ( the average) for that particular
As mentioned above you will discard games like
Manchester City at home versus a relegation threatened side - which
in turn will boost the overall odds for the draw in games that you
do bet in.
Often draws occur when struggling sides play at
HOME - they will pack their defence,and view a draw as a good
result,even when playing before their own fans.
End of season games also seem to
end in draws if both sides have nothing to play for (regards high
position or relegation battle),and both sides meander through the
game and don't exert themselves,or risk injury,often resulting in a
boring 0-0 draw.
Seems obvious,but is a quick indication of
tight games - if the bookmakers have roughly same odds for home and
away side,a draw is on the cards,but this will of course be
reflected in the lower odds on offer.
Also bear in mind,just
because a team has a high number of recent draws,this does not mean
that that trend will continue - each game is different and should be
So,if you are a punter who wants to win and
not be just entertained with those novelty bets,the draw is a
How many bets show an almost
level return on your stakes by just backing that option ? - not
By using some common sense in
which games you bet the draw,a profit should be easily within your
grasp if you restrict your football bets to the draw on suitable
