With every passing day, millions of people place bets on football matches in Nigeria. That’s because Football is the most popular sport in Nigeria with millions of fans and club lovers. Regardless of the popularity, it’s not so easy placing a bet to win big, as it is to love and support your favourite team.
The truth is, which I am also guilty of, many of us place small bets (of 100 Naira) with the hope of winning big (as much as 40 million Naira) to start fantasising and dreaming about what we are going to do with the money at the end of our betslips. Money that’s not ours yet. Lol!
Unfortunately, these dreams will remain for most of us, as what they are, as simply dreams! But, there are ways to improve your chances of winning. That means you have to start thinking strategically about sports betting. So, before you place your next bet, here are things you need to know.
1. Go for the best odds in sports betting
FrapapaBET has the best odds in sports betting which assures you better returns on your stake. If you bet on sports constantly, you will know that not all bookies provide the same odds. Some are abysmally smaller than others.
One thing that we are known for, is that we provide significantly bigger odds on sports. If you doubt us, you can look around.
2. Understand league stats and trends
Before you bet on any league, enter your data analyst mode so you’re not dashing us money. Ensure you understand the league well enough by spending hours analysing numbers, statistics, and trends in the league like the average goals scored, home-win rate, away-win rate, disciplinary records, players stats, etc.
You can use websites like; https://livescore.frapapa.com/en and https://www.soccerstats.com/ where you can get detailed stats that will assist you to make an informed betting decision.
3. Latest and relevant sports news
Instead of guessing which player is injured or going to miss out in a match, always follow news on the team you intend to bet on. You can do so by checking our blog and other online news sites like goal.com, skysports.com, etc.
4. Latest team form
There are times we are blinded and confused by our preference of a team over the other which could affect our decision making. For example, if you are a Manchester United fan, it would be difficult for you to select an in-form Brentford team to win over your team. This also applies when you have a favourite in a fixture. That’s why it is good to check a teams’ form for the past six (6) matches. Do this for both their home and away form.
You not only need to know teams’ last six matches, but how they have been head-to-head against their opponent for that match.
5. History between teams
Rivalry between teams plays a large role in match outcomes. For example, Arsenal and Tottenham have a rivalry that’s been ongoing for decades. When these two teams face each other, their recent form most times doesn’t matter, it’s their willingness on the day. It’s important to know the rival team’s recent performance, team form, and, more importantly, between the rivals, which one has won more matches.
6. Bet only what you can afford to lose
How much you are willing to bet should be the amount you are willing to lose. Don’t allow yourself to be swayed by your potential winnings or even the form of the team you are betting on, then bet with your savings. It might not end well for you. Always set aside a bet fund that will not affect your finances if you lose it.
