How to increase your chances of success when betting on football matches

Betting online is fun, cool and can bring in a lot of money to supplement your household budget. It’s also safe and many of the world’s biggest companies are increasingly investing in the Brazilian market. In our country, thousands of people already place their bets online through at least 200 companies in the segment, both domestic and foreign.

Although some Brazilians are already earning thousands of reais a month from betting using simple mobile phones, for example, some steps are important to increase the chances of success in the sector. Choosing a good bookmaker is the first step and international companies such as world leaders Bet 365 and 22bet are among the most popular, as they have been operating in the market for over 20 years in several countries and use high technology in their operations.
Football is still by far the most popular sport among punters. The so-called bookmakers offer events in various leagues such as the A and B Series of the Brasileirão, the Copa do Brasil, the state leagues, the Libertadores and the Copa Sudamericana. European leagues, the Champions League, the American Football Championship and much more are also included.

After opening your account, which can be done on the website of the company of your choice, you should immediately access the information that the bookmaker usually makes available about the performance of the teams involved in a match or championship, if you choose to make a long-term bid on who will win a particular national or foreign tournament.

Obviously, the new customer must have a minimum knowledge of the sport and for this reading articles in the sports press can be a good aid, along with reviews on television and the internet. From these sources you can find out if any players are injured, if the team will play at full strength and many other points that can qualify the bet on the internet.

Another point to consider is how motivated a team is. Those who are leading a competition or who are on the rise, for example, are in high spirits and are more likely to win. On the other hand, those who have been in the relegation zone for several rounds without managing to get out usually “give up” the points at a certain point in the championship.

Next, the prospective bettor can analyse the schedule of the teams involved in an event. Sometimes, between two rounds of a tournament like the Brasileirão, for example, there are matches in international competitions like Libertadores or South America, which can wear out the players and increase the possibility of injuries and muscle damage.

On the websites of the main bookmakers, customers can also get information on the latest matches between the teams that will be playing in a round. This gives you an even better basis for your online bet.
Of course, the odds section of the bookmaker must be taken into account by those who wish to bet. These odds tell you who the favourites and underdogs of the matchday are. Always remember that the more favoured a team is, the less the customer will profit if the bet is successful. On the other hand, a successful bet on an underdog can bring in much more at the end of the match.

For beginners in the betting sector, a good tip is to apply straight away for the so-called Bet365 welcome bonus, whereby the first bet can have its value doubled up to a certain ceiling that varies from company to company.
In short, betting online isn’t difficult and can be done quickly with just a few taps on a mobile phone screen. Most of the main companies in the sector have efficient, easy-to-navigate apps that are available in many languages, including Portuguese, which is obviously an advantage for Brazilians venturing into the world wide web. They also have support services where users can ask questions and make any complaints they may have.
