I play a round of mean soccer with my MALE soccer buddies every Wednesday night. I'm the only rose among the thorns. During each game, I simply forget that they are guys. I just concentrate on the game of eleven players against eleven players.
You may be curious to know which position does this rose cover? As I'm extremely nibble, agile and have excellent reflexes, I 'man' the goalposts. Yes, I'm the goalkeeper.
Mind you, the job of goalkeeping may be the most difficult job on the soccer pitch because the actions can come so fast and quick.
The goalie needs to possess the capacity to be razor sharp in concentration at a moment's notice even though he/she may not have much to do for the last 89 minutes.
Now, why do these thorns trust their rosie goalkeeper... simply because I made a mean goalie. My defenders have absolute confidence in this "last woman standing".
The great Brian Clough once said a good goalkeeper could be worth 15 points a season. It has been 360 minutes without my conceding a goal and I'm proud of this humble record.
I realized that playing a soccer game and placing a soccer bet have a lot of similarities. There are ups, there are downs, and sometimes there are turnarounds in the game or bet.
However, I've found that in soccer live betting, most of the "unpredictables" in the game can be decoded.
The odds provided by the bookmakers are a reflection of the performance of the teams on the pitch from the bookmakers' point of view. So when we go along with the bookmakers' reading of the game as reflected by the odds, we cannot be far off.
This makes soccer live betting a literal gold-mine IF we can possess the skill to "decode the odds" and place our winning bets. With so many live bets being offered on every match day, there's plenty of profitable actions to be had.
(Live betting is also popularly known as bet in-play, in-running, in-game and running ball).
I was searching for a soccer live betting book which can teach me the techniques to decode the odds which is the integral part in profitable live betting. I found what I wanted in this 108 page soccer live betting system and let me show you what I've discovered.
1) Match Fixing At This Tail End Of The Soccer Season
The soccer season in Europe has reached the tail end. Games have been played and matches have been won and lost.
It is at this point of the season that the rumours of match fixing will rear its ugly head.
How could we ignore the gossips when completely unexpected results happen... especially when this is the crucial point of the season when teams are fighting for coveted places to play in an European competition, or to avoid relegation.
Of course, in soccer, just like in any sport, there are always freak results. Just one error in judgement by a referee or a linesman can make a difference between winning and losing.
For normal bets, unless the punter has access to the match fixing syndicate, it can be difficult for him to 'smell out' the suspicious matches. He has to be vigilant on any abnormal odds swings or prices too good to be true. The onus is on himself to be alert before placing his bets.
For live bets, as the odds are adjusted according to how the match is moving, if a syndicate has fixed a game, say the Home team to lose the match, their poor play would have been reflected in the odds movements. So you can say that this is one advantage live bets have over normal bets, provided you can decode the odds.
2) The Main Thing That This System Has Taught Me
This book opened up my eyes to look at the odds from a different angle - the angle which brought in the dole. I didn't know the secret is hidden in the odds. Once you discover it, you'll realize how easy it is to make money in soccer live betting.
I love the chapter on "Timing Of The Bets". The author has meticulously explained the rationale in determining the best "profitable" times to place the bets. The screen-shots made it real easy to understand.
3) The No. 1 Tip I've Learned
For me, the No. 1 tip I've learned is the discipline to follow the criteria of each of the 10 strategies.
I realized the criteria form the foundation of the strategy and by following them strictly, I'll not be tempted to deviate due to any emotion.
I'll only place my bets when the selection meets the criteria 100%. This discipline makes me place each bet with utmost confidence.
4) The No. 2 Tip I've Learned
I realized a good betting system must be complemented with sensible money handling knowledge.
This book has an in-depth coverage on money management rules especially in staking plan and stop win/stop loss limit.
I once followed a system which recommended doubling up the next stake amount to cover the last loss. In one weekend, I lost 90% of my bank.
So knowing how to handle my betting money is the No. 2 tip.
5) Why Is This System The Complete System
I love to describe things in terms of hardware and software.
In this system book, the 10 strategies are the hardware. But to get the system going towards the profitable mode, it is necessary to install an efficient software to ensure consistent profit.
In this book, the author took pains to expound on the virtues of maintaining a winning mindset and dealing with emotions of fear and greed, every punter's worst enemies.
The chapter on fear and greed is most valuable as the author painted a few betting scenarios to illustrate the point that the distinction between the successful punters and the unsuccessful lot is how they deal with these two emotions.
6) Which Strategy Every Punter Should Know
Out of the 10 strategies, I feel every live bettor should be well versed with the "Cut Loss Strategy" in order to limit any financial damage whenever needed.
Many things can happen in 90 minutes on the soccer pitch. To me, it is very comforting to know that there is a strategy of a "Plan B" when the original strategy is not working. This is my favourite strategy because I love back doors.
7) How Does This System Benefit You
With the 10 strategies, you'll know exactly what to do when the betting opportunities present themselves.
You'll not be led by emotion, or relying on luck, or by "guesstimates" to place your bets.
The odds which are a reflection of the performance of the two teams on the pitch will tell you what to do.
8) Can You Really Make $1200 In 3 Hours
Yes, you definitely can. There are so many live games offered on every match day. With the 10 strategies, you can generate regular profits easily.
Of course, your profit figure will depend on your stake amount. Always bet within your comfort zone.
9) What If You've No Experience In Soccer Live Betting
Do not fret. The system can be used even by an absolute beginner. Every strategy is described clearly. There are snapshots explaining each step of the strategy. So there is no guesswork. Every step is supported by the odds movement.
This system does not rely on injuries, previous match previews, weather condition, etc. It does not require hours of analysis on every match day.
You just need to acquire the know-how to read the odds movements.
Having the ability to "decode the odds" takes emotion out of the live betting equation. You bet based on what happens on the pitch, not whether Team A is your beloved team or Team X is your most hated club. This is the money making beauty of soccer live betting.
