Football Betting Strategy Guide
Does making regular and consistent profits from betting on football sound appealing? Are you prepared to put in the necessary time and effort to make this possible? If so, you’re in the right place.
Before we get started, we should make one thing very clear. There’s no single “correct” method for making your football betting selections. Consistently picking winners is just not that simple. There are many different approaches you can choose to take, and many things you need to consider when making your picks. There are several different strategies you can employ, each with its own set of advantages and disadvantages.
Pretty much any football betting strategy has the potential to be successful. The key is using them effectively. For a strategy to work, you have to use it in the right way and in the right situations. This takes both knowledge and skill.
Getting overwhelmed? Don’t! We’re here for you! This section of our website contains the most extensive, and valuable, part of our football betting guide. What we don’t do is tell you what to do. There are plenty of other websites and books that do this, but we don’t believe that simply being told what to do helps you much in the long run.
Instead, we want you to learn how to make informed decisions for yourself. We want to help you determine which approaches are likely to work the best for you, and enable you to implement your preferred strategies effectively. Your ultimate goal should be to develop your own unique winning strategies too.
That’s why we’ve provided an enormous amount of information and advice related to football betting strategy. We’ll teach you the basics and everything you need to know to help you develop the fundamental skills required to be successful. We’ve also provided details on a range of specific strategies and their various pros and cons.
Please note that we’re not claiming to know everything there is to know about betting on football. We do have guys on our team who are long term winners though. They have numerous years of experience, and they’re sharing the benefit of that experience with you. We can’t promise that we’ll turn you into a long term winner too, but we’ll certainly give you a better chance of making some money.
This page explains exactly what you’ll find in this strategy guide, which is divided into the following sections.
Football Betting Strategy for Beginners
This is the best place to start if you’re new to learning about football betting strategy. You might be a complete beginner when it comes to betting, or you might have been betting for a while but just recently have decided to take things more seriously. Or maybe you already take things seriously but have not been getting the results you want.
Whatever your situation, this section will help put you on the road to success. We’ll teach you what football betting strategy is, how it helps and how to use it effectively. That’s not all either.
You might want to take a look at this section even if you’ve already studied football strategy extensively. Unless you’re a genuine expert yourself that is, in which case we probably can’t teach you much at all. Assuming you’re not, you’ll find some useful information here. At the very least you’ll be reminded of some important basics that you might have forgotten.

The word handicapping often scares people when used in the context of sports betting. There seems to be a widespread misconception about what it means. Many people believe it to be an incredibly complex subject that requires genius levels of intelligence to understand. It really isn’t. There are some advanced aspects of it for sure, but it’s fundamentally not that complicated.
In this section we provide a complete introduction to football handicapping. This starts with an explanation of sports betting handicapping in general terms, before looking at handicapping as it relates to football specifically. We also detail the various factors you need to consider when using handicapping techniques. There are some additional articles too. The full list is below.
Wager Specific Tips & Strategies
Several football strategies relate to specific types of wager. This makes perfect sense, as the various types of football wager work very differently. It stands to reason that a good strategy for predicting the winner of a football game is not likely to be so useful for predicting the total number of points in that game. Although there may be some crossover, the factors you need to consider are ultimately very different.
This section features strategy advice and general tips for each of the main types of football wager. The aim here is to help you learn how to use all of these wagers effectively. Much of the advice is fairly straightforward, so it’s all suitable for relative beginners. In fact, many of the strategies discussed are ideal for people who are just getting started.

So we don’t recommended jumping in to this section as a complete beginner.
We start this section with a discussion about the psychology of football betting. Although this isn’t directly related to strategy, it’s still an important subject to understand. Learning how to deal with the mental and emotional aspects of football betting will definitely help you in the long run.
