Betting Information

New to online betting? Worry not, here’s some pointers…

Mmm, imagine this… but in pounds


Every now and then, The Spoiler likes to clear a space for a friend of the site, and allow them to have a little say-so on whatever matter they choose to address. Today, some pals of The Spoiler thought they’d unleash some advice to anyone thinking about having a little gamble any time soon:

Football and football betting has caught the attention of sports lovers. There are so many competitions and events to choose from that spectators are constantly being fed thrilling matches almost round the year. Those who prefer UK based competitions opt to bet on the Premier League clashes but they do not have to stick to that only. There are other competitions held like the Championship, League one, League Two etc which are held in UK. But Premier League is the most popular and people prefer to bet on their favourites, be they Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool etc.

If you are new to football betting and do not understand it, there is no need to worry. There are several online betting sites which provide detailed information on this subject that after going through a few of them, you will gain lot of mastery over this subject. Anyone interested in online football betting has to register with a bookie or a sportsbook. Once you sign up you need to make the initial deposit in your account which is matched by the bookmaker and you often get to bet for free initially. It is always wise to practice on these free bets as you do not stand to lose anything should your decision go wrong.

There is help at hand so that you make the correct decisions and win big at football betting. Betting sites provide facts, figures, team results, home and away tables, odds and forecasts on teams which are to play the game. These figures have to be analysed and understood well and other factors also considered before placing bets.  There are different types of bets available to you and you need to understand that straight bets with a win/lose option give bigger gains should you win, but there is nothing to cushion you in case you lose. Some bets offer a two way option where you are buffered against loss as you stand to win if the result is either of the two you opted for. So if you opted for a Team A/Draw option and if the match ends in a draw or Team A wins, you win the bet. But if Team B wins, you lose. You can win big if you do your research well and place sensible bets with the help of the information at hand.

    I’m not really sure what the point of this blog item is (in what is otherwise a very enjoyable daily read), but by not mentioning price, you are doing your readers a grave disservice. Paying the lowest price to bet (or getting the best odds – however you want to say it) is absolutely vital to sports betting.

    Not going with the sites that have the best prices (, SBOBet, 188Bet, BetFair) is silly in this day and age. It would be like having 50 supermarkets around you that all sold the exact same stuff and choosing to pay 5 pounds for a quart of milk across the street instead of 1 at the place around the corner.
