They like to follow their favorite players and adopt their style in terms oof playing and as well as in their dressing and styling such as hair or shoes etc. football having such a wide based fan following it attracts fans from all over the world bringing their players into more limelight than any other sport. This is also the reason why every player’s skill is very well known in the football world, hence making betting a less difficult task than betting in some other sport.
There are certain points that you should keep in mind while betting for example;
- If you place a bet on $10 a selection at odds of 1/3. And it proves to be a winner your return is £13.33, a profit of £3.33. This is not much of a time to be very excited about since you risked $10!
- At such limited and controlled odds, you need the next 1/3 tips to come in twice, simply to double up your original stake plus after a success of six $10 bets on 1/3 selections, you’ll have tripled the original tenner and eventually the bookmaker will have likely slipped a lot of margin into every single bet. The true odds would probably be 1/4 or perhaps even smaller and you got that bet at 1/3, three times.
- It is also understood that not all odds-on selections go ahead to be winners. If the 1/3 shot was to be a loser the second time you’d speedily find yourself having made a loss of $6.67 ($20 staked but only £3.33 in that account of yours). You will now be needing two more successful 1/3 selection to simply win to just break even.
Football has a history of betting in a higher end manner that involves even the highest officials that are in charge of the FIFA as well. One of the most corrupt FIFA officials was Joseph Sepp Blatter who was also the President of FIFA, he was involved in all sorts of forgery including betting and match fixing. He would cover up the records of his dealings and therefore even after an investigation being carried out no one could really point to anything that would lead to the evidence of him being involved in betting and match fixing yet a lot of FIFA’s funds had gone missing without trace so it is most likely explained through some unclear activities being observed at the matches in the field.
This explains how much football fans are crazy about the matches and put all of their efforts and money while watching these live matches and in support of their favorite team or player. One should always remember that there has to be a set limit till which betting should be done. Once that limit is achieved, we should just enjoy the experience and sit back and relax the entire game as it unfolds.
